Boendet
You'll be in the "tastiest town in the south" and hosted by an Airbnb Belo Award recipient. This private 2-bedroom guest apartment is a welcoming & quiet respite outfitted with king & queen Casper beds. Comfy living room w/fireplace; wifi, kitchenette; TV. And a lovely rejuvenating garden that's worth a stroll.

The two-bedroom flat is just off University Drive, a half block from Forest Hills Park. The apartment's private entrance is from the carport. There's a guest closet in each bedroom. One bedroom is equipped with TV, DVD, radio, CD. The living room sofa is outfitted with linens, too, should an extra bed be needed. A pack-&-play is provided for those with infants and toddlers. Wireless internet. Work desk. The lovely, fenced garden with patio is just through the garden gate.

This space is ideal for business conference & film/arts/festival attendees, touring artists or crew, med center visitors or university student family members, wedding or graduation guests. Guests are especially fond of the garden where they frequently enjoy morning coffee or evening drinks when the weather allows. A bottle of chilled Prosecco or Sauvignon Blanc in the mini-fridge awaits your arrival on check-in.

Ample breakfast amenities are provided. Enjoy morning coffee or tea or an afternoon cocktail out in the garden. Breakfast items provided include coffee, tea, oatmeal, granola, fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, juice, English muffins & more. You’ll find imported chocolates in your welcome basket when you arrive. A Nespresso coffeemaker is provided in the kitchenette. (Please note that this AirBnB space doesn't really lend itself to long-term stays for those who desire to prepare full meals on site, as the kitchenette only features a microwave -- but no cooktop or stove.)

This property is conveniently located 1 mi. from DPAC & the Durham Bulls stadium; 1.5 mi. from central downtown & the Carolina Theatre; 3 mi. from Duke's West campus & Duke Med Center.

Please don't hesitate to inquire if there are issues you'd like to clarify before confirming your reservation. I've had a wonderful six-year affiliation with Airbnb, and have even hosted three "Airbnb weddings" here in the garden. I was fortunate to attend the Airbnb Open conference in Paris in November 2015, along with 5000 other Airbnb hosts from 110 countries gathered for the event. Tragically, the horrendous terror attacks occurred on the second night of the conference. In November of 2016, I joined 7000+ hosts from 100 countries for the Airbnb Open in Los Angeles, where Airbnb premiered their TV commercial about my having hosted the Airbnb wedding. The festive Belo Awards Ceremony was held at the historic Orpheum Theatre, hosted by James Corden -- with Lady GaGa and Maroon 5 as the night's entertainment!

You can learn more about your host, his arts-related company 'goingbarefoot,' view the Airbnb commercial & more by visiting the goingbarefoot website. Your host donates ten percent of all Airbnb proceeds in support scholarship programs of The Experiment in International Living.

Gästers tillgång
This is a completely private apartment comprising the lower fl. of a 60s brick split-level on an unpaved wooded lane near Forest Hills Park. The private upper level is the home of the host. Again, please note — this apartment does not provide full cooking facilities. The kitchenette does include a microwave, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, sink, etc. There is no cooktop, however.

Andra saker att notera
Unless you've made special arrangements with the host, no pets are permitted in the guest apartment, please, due to homeowner’s own 11-year-old rescue standard poodle named Beauchamp - and two new young feline residents named after my favorite singer/songwriters Susan Werner and David Myles. Beauchamp (nor the singing kittens) come into the guest apartment. They have access into the back garden via their doors and always enjoys meeting Airbnb guests when invited (and sometimes when not...)

Durham, North Carolina, USA

This Airbnb apartment in Durham is on the edge of the historic Forest Hills neighborhood, convenient to downtown, and easily accessible off the Durham Freeway. We're approx. 15 minutes drive from Chapel Hill, 20 minutes from RDU Airport, and a half-hour from Raleigh. Numerous informational publications about Durham's acclaimed local cultural & culinary attractions are provided on site, and your host will happily share facts and fiction about all. Durham is a creative, welcoming, diverse, vibrant city community. (If 21c chose Durham as home to one of its incredible museum hotels, then you know it has a pretty cool vibe.) Here's a wonderful introduction to Durham's food scene -- aired on PBS in September 2018: https://www.pbs.org/video/durham-jdk0nf/

It's slightly less than a 30-minute leisurely walk from the house to central downtown Durham, and a few minutes less over to DPAC or the Bulls stadium. Depending on policies in place, taxis, Uber & Lyft are easily accessible; it's about a $6 ride-share fee to be taken downtown, and usually around $22-24 to or from RDU. Central Downtown Durham offers a Bull City Connector fare-free bus system. The historic Amtrak station near Brightleaf Square is less than 1.5 miles away. Electric scooter share programs operate in Durham, and a couple of car rental sites are under two miles away from the Airbnb apartment.

The northern entrance to the 22-mile American jogging & biking trail is slightly less than one mile away, near the Bulls stadium. Forest Hills Park is a half-block away.

I am semi-retired after a 30+ year career in performing arts presenting and arts administration. I own goingbarefoot, inc., a small boutique artist management agency, representing actor/playwright Mike Wiley and vintage country music duo The Malpass Brothers. I am currently serving as Executive Producer of a new feature length documentary film in production about jazz singer Carol Sloane. You can learn more by visiting goingbarefoot online. I am a journalism graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, and served three years as a US Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya, East Africa. Later in the 70s, I worked in Vermont for the national office of The Experiment in International Living before returning to North Carolina. I opened the jazz supperclub "Stephen's After All" in Chapel Hill, NC in the early 80s, and later was managing director of the historic Carolina Theatre of Durham before incorporating my own arts management business in the 1990s. As an Airbnb host, I was fortunate to attend the Airbnb Open in Paris in 2015, and then again in L.A. in 2016 where I received a Belo Award as one of the three global Host Story winners for the year for the account of the "Airbnb wedding" hosted in my garden in the summer of 2015. Pasttimes include gardening, cooking, film -- and I continue to be wowed by the amazing little city that Durham, NC has become. 'Hope you'll fall in love with it, too... Be in touch with any questions about a potential visit. I do not support the exclusionary divisive actions of the North Carolina legislature or the U.S. Congress. And we never studied 'fake news' in journalism school. A portion of your Airbnb rental goes to support the scholarship program of The Experiment in International Living.

Under din vistelse
During your visit, the homeowner doesn't "hover" -- but is readily accessible for any assistance, questions and concerns, and enjoys suggesting some of the many attractions that make Durham such a great place.

Guests are requested to check-in between 3-7 PM whenever possible. Arrangements can be made for exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Checkout is required by 11am unless arranged otherwise in advance. It's a quiet neighborhood, and low late-night noise is appreciated. Guests may request total self check-in or choose to be welcomed by the host. Additional arrival & location details will be provided in advance of your scheduled arrival. I am honored to have gained Airbnb Superhost classification after my first three months of hosting, and have maintained that special status of hospitality and guest care continually since fall of 2014. I was a recipient of Airbnb's international Belo Awards at the Airbnb Open in 2016.

The host & homeowner is a former Peace Corps volunteer who is a semi-retired performing arts presenter & agent (goingbarefoot inc.) who'll be happy to answer questions and provide recommendations about local attractions, dining, neighborhoods, etc. Public health restrictions & Covid-related policies are applicable and may limit access to certain attractions and activities. (Pre-ovid, I placed about ten local recommended spots in the Airbnb "Guidebook," but there's much more to share... You'll find a lengthy restaurant guide in the House Manual you'll receive from Airbnb with your reservation confirmation, and a hard copy is also provided on site.) Just be aware that the ever-expanding culinary scene grows so quickly it's hard to keep up!
