About Jeff

I am 51 years old and have traveled extensively throughout North America which has made me well aware of what it takes to make a guest feel welcome and relaxed. My wife and I have managed our own personal rental properties for the past fifteen years and understand the importnance of a well maintained property. We are trying our hand at the short term lodging market.

Jeff purchased this house in 2015

Why Jeff chose Northwest Raleigh

My wife and I fell in love with this property because of its architectural detail, floor plan, and proximity to downtown Raleigh, suburban shopping, restaurants, and location just 2 blocks from the Greenway Trail. Our family loves exploring the trail network in Raleigh as well as the walkability of the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Very private setting with a great back porch, deck and patio. The setting feels like you are tucked in a mature forest. The two story wall of windows in the family room allows a great indoor view of the trees. The backyard is very secluded, quiet, and private.

Wonderful Stress-Free Stay

  • 5 of 5

I just cannot say enough good things about this home. My weekend at the house was simply fabulous. The accommodations and hospitality put me right at ease from the moment I walked in. Everything was clean, and there was plenty of helpful information thanks to my hosts right at my fingertips. I was in town to host a small bridal shower for a friend, and all the guests fawned over the house too! The space was worth every penny, and if I ever need to have another holiday rental in the Raliegh area Jeff & Ellen's home will be the first on my list!

Made my wedding week Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Jeff and Ellen and their immaculate home. It was base point for “Wedding Week” which hosted my out of town parent’s, childhood best friend and brother. My family and friends were very impressed and felt super comfortable. They were pleased I was so thoughtful and found such a great home for them to stay in. This home is gorgeous and kept very well. You will have everything you may need for cooking and playing family games. It is well decorated mixing in old and new in a classical style. The house was so beautiful I decided to have a few pre wedding pictures taken and believe they will turn out amazing. I will consider renting this property again. Owners were very attentive, available, and quick communicators.thanks again Jeff and Ellen.

Spacious, convenient home for a family Raleigh stay

  • 5 of 5

Jeff's home was immaculate. It was well-stocked with linens, kitchen supplies, and even board games! Jeff was great with communication, responding to text and email promptly, and even swinging by the house to leave some extra supplies. The house itself is very spacious. It is 20 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown (door to door), and there are grocery stores, coffee shops, and a shopping mall all within a 5 minute drive. The trail access was also great for walking and running. We'd definitely recommend this property to others traveling to the Raleigh area.

We used to live in NC and took a long weekend to get together with family for the holidays. In the past we stayed at hotels but this year we tried the house rental route and we are so glad we did. The house is clean and beautifully decorated - they even decorated the whole house for the holidays which was such a pleasant surprise. The kitchen was well appointed to cook up a family meal and there really wasn't anything that was missing. We will definitely be back - no more hotels for our family get together's. Next time I will leave more time for me and get to that trail that is so close to the house.

Great location but. . . .

  • 3 of 5

Location was awesome. Near a beautiful greenbelt where we were able to take advantage of the provided bikes. 5 minutes from the mall and grocery shopping. House surrounded by lovely trees. However, when I informed the owners that they had an extermination issue all we got was a "thank you" for letting us know. Then we were randomly charged a cleaning fee for the master jacuzzi that didn't work and I couldn't clean out the bath salts around the rim without any cleaning supplies. We were also accused of stealing a knife and charged $34.67 for that.

So I should let you all know that roaches were seen scurrying around the master bathroom, in an upstairs bedroom and a few over the cooktop in the kitchen as we were preparing Thanksgiving dinner..

Owner's Response: Exercise extreme caution renting to this individual. Guest is unwilling to take personal responsibility for bad behavior. Further more no water bugs have ever been seen in my home by myself nor my family. additionally, none of the 85 previous bookings I have hosted have ever reported any bugs in my home. I expect all my guests to clean-up messes they make just as they would in their own home. Also, I expect guests to Inform me if items are accidentally broken. My cleaning fee is low to accommodate responsible guests. This guest left our whirlpool tub filthy with a dark brown material dried around the sides. Cleaning products are available to guests in every bathroom, kitchen sink cabinet, and laundry room. Also, Whirlpool tub works fine, instructions were not followed per reference binder we provide to guests. Guest was also instructed to text or call me if there was a problem or issue with anything. I received no call or texts from this guest. A $59.67 charge was levied against the security deposit to cover the missing Cutco knife, and $25 fee for one hour additional cleaning. Guest was informed that I went through garbage to rule-out accidental loss. We are not sure what happened to the knife but it cant be found in the house. This guest threatened me with a bad review on this site as well as social media because I kept $59.67 to cover my loss. My wife and I are very disappointed with this guests behavior...

Fantastic home, enjoyed the stay very much.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my daughter's wedding so all the brides maids could stay together, being they were all coming in from out of town. Jeff at first was afraid the house wouldn't be up to standards due to the group that had the home before us, but it was in great shape and everything was wonderful. The house was super clean and the girls were real impress with how comfortable it was. They really enjoyed it being so close to Crabtree Mall, they really enjoy the Beer Garden. I would recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a place to stay in Raleigh. Thanks Jeff for allowing us to share your home.
