3 Bedroom Retreat Close To Downtown!

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

This house is in the heart of Raleigh, or 'Inside the Beltline' as we say. Only 15 minutes from the airport and just minutes away from downtown and the 440 'beltline' freeway. Very convenient to many of Raleigh's business and tourist destinations while still offering that vacation-home feel.

The house has three bedrooms and 1.5 baths. Two bedrooms are the same size with queen beds, and the third bedroom has a full-size bed and its own half bath. The space is ideal for small groups, couples, business travelers, families, vacationers and more.

Beautiful hardwood floors throughout, comfortable beds, plush, private and cozy!

Guests have full use of the upstairs part of the house with fully stocked kitchen and main living area with HD LED TV, surround sound, Cable/HBO, Blu-ray player, Netflix, Hulu and huge DVD library.

The property is also within walking distance to Lion's Park (playground, tennis courts, softball fields etc) and the Capital Greenway nature trail (walking, hiking, biking, etc.)

Pet policy: Some smaller, non-shedding 'hypoallergenic' dog breeds allowed. Please provide breed, age and size when inquiring. Sorry, no cats!

Last minute bookings OK. Contact me with any questions (pricing can be flexible depending on number of guests and length of stay, but please, no low-ballers!)

ALSO NOTE: In the lower level of the house is a private apartment with separate entrance where there's a slight chance the owner may be staying a night or two between travels. The apartment is not included in the rental but can be added as an option for more living space. Guests will still have access to the laundry room. (If the owner is present during your stay interaction would be at a minimum. Guest privacy is of the highest priority.)

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained, very convienent to downtown. Brad was a great host and was very responsive and helpful when we had any questions. It was a great surprise to find a list of local restaurants that delivered to the property as well as grocery stores.

Wonderful Home with Class

  • 5 of 5

This home is conveniently located close to downtown. The RCC was 9 minutes away. It's a beautiful home with a very nice surround sound system and HD television. Awesome deck on the back and covered porch on the front. For us, the only shortcoming was just one bathroom/shower. Three of us worked around it. One cooked breakfast while the other two got ready. Those two cleaned the kitchen while the cook got ready. So, it really worked out nicely. We highly recommend this home to any one. We will stay here again! Brad, the owner, is a cordial person and extremely helpful. Count us in next year!

Perfect for a relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Coming off a couple of hectic, stressful weeks, my husband and I decided to get out of town for a few days to just relax with the kids and enjoy some family time. Since it was a last-minute trip, our options were limited, but thankfully this house was available and Brad was willing and able to accommodate spur-of-the-moment guests. Seriously such a great experience. The house was clean and cozy, the back yard was fun for the kids, the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. We had more than enough of everything we could have needed and were comfortable in every way. Location was excellent and convenient as well. We were probably a five-minute drive to downtown, which was awesome for us. Super close to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, etc., etc. Brad was awesome with communication - helpful and available but gave us total privacy. Highly recommend!

Great place close to the city

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect with a super comfortable couch, enviable entertainment system, and super comfy beds. It was clean and close enough to the city to enjoy that side of Raleigh but far enough away to actually relax. The yard was plenty big enough for our two dogs (leashed of course because the house is right on a road) and very nicely landscaped. We would gladly stay again if we have cause to be back in Raleigh.
