When you're traveling, nothing beats staying in a clean and beautifully decorated home ... except maybe a clean, beautifully decorated home with a private swimming pool and a pool table! If that sounds good to you, then we welcome you to rent our place and have a wonderful stay here in Chapel Hill. The house sleeps six adults, has a fully equipped kitchen, private pool, pool table, big screen tv, washer and dryer, and plenty of parking. Please read on for all the details!
This home is completely private and set back from the street on a full acre lot with many old shade trees and pines, but only minutes from downtown Carrboro, Chapel Hill, UNC Campus, and the UNC Hospitals. It was built in 1967 and updated at some point over the years, but still retains the charm and character of an older home. It is very open, light, and airy with wood floors and lots of windows. There are large common spaces, but also 3 individual bedrooms for sleeping and private time. The kitchen has everything you could need, including pots and pans (even a giant pot for pasta, a wok, and crepe pans!), place settings for 8, serving ware, wine glasses, a coffee maker, microwave, toaster, blender, giant refrigerator/freezer, and brand new oven. You'll also find all the necessities for cooking: flour, sugar, spices, oil and vinegar, peanut butter and jelly, tea and coffee, drink mixes, tons of snacks, fruit, etc. (We are also more than happy to have the kitchen completely stocked with your favorite foods when you arrive. Just let us know and we'll give you the details!) There is a dining table that will seat six as well as a small antique breakfast table in the kitchen that will seat 4 on little attached seats... it's hard to explain but pretty cute! The main living room has 2 couches, a chair, flat screen tv and then there is another sitting area that has an *insanely* comfortable oversized beanbag chair and wonderful swinging chair. Next to both of these sitting spaces is a small pool table, and right out back is your own private swimming pool! The pool is swimmable from May to October, but during the rest of the year you can still use the picnic table out back or play horse shoes in the 1/2 acre shaded yard. There is one full bathroom with a shower and tub, a half bath connected to one of the bedrooms, and an outside shower by the pool. (If you've never tried it, an outside shower in the winter is awesome!) Like I said, we are not even 5 minutes away from the restaurants and shops in the charming town of Carrboro (called the Paris of the south, though that's kind of a stretch!) and 10 minutes to downtown Chapel Hill, the University, and the UNC Hospitals. We are close to University Lake (rent a boat and go fishing), many hiking paths, and Carrboro's weekly farmer's market. The entrance to the highway is only 2 minutes away, or catch the bus and take free public transportation all over town. If you are here to visit colleges other than UNC, we're just 20 minutes from Duke, and 35 minutes from NC State.
