About the property

This downstairs apartment in a freshly renovated home in Downtown Raleigh has a fenced in back yard with outdoor dining and grilling. You have a deck and a patio to enjoy the beautiful Raleigh weather. It is a 1 bedroom with a Kingsized bed, 1 Bathroom, also a living room with a pull out queen sleeper sofa. We have a brand new washer/dryer combo and plenty of closet space. Great light, newly painted and all brand new furniture and bedding. Brand new dishwasher, as well. With an open floor plan, exposed brick and recessed lighting the space feels very big and is super functional. There is also a desk area with wireless internet (we have a fiber optic connection and push a wireless signal throughout the house and back yard). We are happy to host both kids and dogs. We ask that dogs be crated if possible, that they are not left outside alone (for long periods), that you clean up after your furry companion, and that you refrain from bringing them if they are excessively talkative. Dogs are not allowed on any of the furniture or beds. We provide a dog bed, food and water bowls, treats, and dogie bags to help make your stay as convenient. We have lots of amenities for children. We are happy to provide a porta-crib, high chair, sippy cups, kids plates and forks, age appropriate toys, and baby gates on the porch for young children. Rules for kids are similar to any home: no excessive noise outside of normal hours (9am-9pm), no food or drinks outside the kitchen or porch, no leaving your children unattended outside.

Please also remember this is our home, where our parents stay when they come to visit. Please treat it with kindness so that it stays nice for our family and others.

We hope you chose to stay with us while you visit Raleigh. We have a ton of great restaurants and places to visit and lots of free activity ideas for kids!

There is some noise transfer between this apartment and the other apartment upstairs. They do not have access to your porch and back yard area and we ask that you respect their use of the front yard and porch. You will hear footsteps and some noise transfer when there are children on the property. We ask the people upstairs to be respectful of the same noise rules and if there is anything outside of the normal we ask you to let us know immediately and we will make sure your visit is a great one!


NO SMOKING inside the apartment. If any smoking is done on the back deck please make sure you clean up after all traces, butts and ashes. Please dont use our glasses or bowels for an ash tray, consider bringing your own.

Pet Policy: No pets UNLESS PERMISSION IS GRANTED ON A LIMITED BASIS. Please submit a reservation request describing your pet. If your pet barks while you're away or sheds a great deal then we ask that you not send a pet request. Any pets that make excessive noise will be asked to leave. No dogs on the furniture or beds. Dogs must be kenneled while you are not in the home. All dog poop must be cleaned up by the guest.

A $100 Nonrefundable Pet Fee will be added to every rental to cover the additional cleaning fee. Any stay over a week will be charged an additional $100/week non refundable pet fee.

Children/baby policy: we are happy to host kids of all ages and we try very hard to help make their stay as comfortable and happy as possible. But excessive noise/crying especially during typical sleeping hours 9pm to 9am will not be acceptable. (Aka not time to sleep train lol) If this becomes a problem you will have to leave.

(Basically kids and pets are welcome if they are travel friendly. This isn't a co space but there is a person above you.)

There is a upper apartment above your space. Please be courteous.

The back deck is strictly for the lower apartment and the front yard and porch are strictly for the upstair apartments use.

Nothing down the toilet but toilet paper. This is a vital rule. Any guest with children under 12 will be required to use Scott's Brand toilet paper (which will be provided)

Right now, due to pending permitting with the city, parking is in the street in front of the house. Please do not use the driveway, it is not fully our property.

We have dog baggies, please clean up after your furry companions.

Even better than the Pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The second I walked into Juliana's home I was blown away and the location couldn't get much better. The bed linens and towels are a very good quality and the mattress was very comfortable (I didnt roll into my husband all night like our last hotel). Plenty of dishes, glasses, wine glasses, etc. The apartment is located in a safe, walkable area. My husband and I were able to get easily to museums, breweries, plays, fantastic restaurants and we had a calm, comfortable oasis to return to and recharge. We could walk but also Public transportation (r-line) and Uber makes any place easy to reach. Juliana was a gracious, helpful host who made an all-around excellent experience!

Cozy stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with the rental. There were a lot of nice touches. There was food and wine supplied! The bed was comfortable, there were plenty of movies to chose from and it was a good size. The location was very close to downtown, though we didn't get a chance to really see because it was so cold. We ended up staying put and watching lots of movies. We will definately be back to see more of Raleigh.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to be near Downtown and this was perfect. The neighborhood is cute and you can walk to some nice bars and restaurants. The place is very clean and well appointed with a nice outside area for chilling. The only negative was we could hear loud music from the people renting the upstairs late one night. Overall had a great stay.

Owner's Response: We were very happy to host the Stewarts. They were great guests. I was so sorry that our up stairs guests didn't follow our house rules. I wish he had told me sooner about the problem. After hearing about the loud music, I was mortified, I did discount their stay. We have never had someone disrespected the noise rule after hours. The Stewarts said they would be staying again and I scincerely hope they do, this way they can get the true experience of our home.

The owners have thought of everything!

We spent a long weekend here and WILL be back!

Clean, nicely decorated, private and close to everything we wanted to do.

The little extras provided, coffee, creamer, snacks and even a bottle of wine are a nice touch.

Best Short Term Rental-EVER

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It was an ideal location. A quiet, safe neighborhood yet walking distance to so much. I was able to walk to restaurants and bars. The place was so well done. It was stylish and edgy but also super comfortable and CLEAN!! The sheets were amazing and the bed was so comfortable. The back yard was great too. I had my coffee lounging in the back yard. Juliana is a great host. She was very attentive and easy to communicate with. Cant say enough nice things about her and her place. Ill be back for sure!
