About the property

3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Downtown walkable, Dogs and Kids welcome, newly renovated

Our renovation are finished. We bought this house because we have kids and we really appreciate when our family can come and visit. Unfortunately we cant fit anyone extra in our house. In order for us to afford to have 2 homes we have decided to rent this one out while our parents aren't in town. Both our mother in laws will be staying at this house so help us keep it nice! We have a brand new bathroom and a fully renovated kitchen. The house is fully stocked with new sheets, towels, mattress and more. The downstairs Master has a king size bed and closet with hangers. The second downstairs bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed with a closest, collapsable crib, and changing table. The first floor also has a cozy living room with a smart tv and a workspace. The dining room has built in cabinets and is beautifully lit. The galley kitchen has a new dishwasher, stove, microwave, and fridge and beautiful concrete countertops. It is fully stocked with dish ware and all one might need to cook and serve a beautiful meal. The laundry room has brand new full size washer and dryers along with an ironing board and iron for your use. The third bedroom is on the second floor. This well lit bonus room has a queen size bed and space to relax. Beautifully decorated and accented throughout. This house was designed for your comfort and pleasure.

The house is centrally located in downtown Raleigh. You are walking distance from everything, along with the R-Line which is a free bus that circles downtown. You can always call an uber/lift, as well. Great bars and restaurants, along with activities in downtown most weekends. The house is a couple houses away from a park and is in a quiet, safe neighborhood.

Guest access

You will have access to the upper part of the house and the front yard. The back of the house and its deck are not part of this listing. The front porch is well lit and has chairs for enjoying the beautiful porch weather that Raleigh is known for.

Interaction with guests

We will be glad to help with questions and concerns throughout your stay. Either myself or my husband can help make sure your stay is enjoyable. We will have a calendar of local downtown events, local bars and restaurant suggestions (including some fun local spots that tourists rarely see), we also have a contact list of local farmers markets, gyms, short term child care, bakeries, salons, and so on to help make your stay as fun as possible. Give us an overview and we will try to help you enjoy Raleigh as much as we do.

The neighborhood

We are located in Mordecai in downtown Raleigh. There are bars, restaurants and parks as well as colleges and free interactive museums. Come check out all that Raleigh has to offer in our quiet neighborhood thats right next to all the best places. Being a quiet neighborhood please respect the neighbors and the noise levels. Its a sought after, safe, well established location with lots of charm and a long history.

Getting around

There is plenty of public transportation. We have buses, the R-line (which is free circulator bus and encapsulates all of downtown), there are plenty of uber and lift drivers at all times just a few minutes away. For a more unique experience check out the pedi-cabs and the trolly pub (reserve in advance).

Other things to note

We love kids, we have few of our own. We have pretty much everything you would need for all ages. We provide a crib, changing table, toys, high chairs, swing, sippy cups, and even a stroller upon request. Check with me before packing anything bulky bc chances are I have one you can use ;). We also love dogs! A $100 Nonrefundable Pet Fee will be added to every rental to cover the additional cleaning fee we have to pay for cleaning the unit after the pet vacates. For any stays over a week long there is an additional $100 per week additional Nonrefundable pet fee. We provide a bowl for food and a water bowl, a dog bed, poopie bags, and treats. Being a respectful visitor is key. Please try to keep food in the right places, small children in safe areas, and treat our home with kindness. We will provide highchairs, cribs and toys, please try to treat them nicely so that others may benefit from them too. If you are bringing a pet it must be approved by us first. Noise manners are important since this house is in a quiet neighborhood, excessive barking or wining is a sign your pup is in distress and isnt pleasant for the neighbors nor your fur friend. We will have a dog bed and food bowl, treats and gate.

About Juliana

My husband and I moved to Raleigh three years ago from Lima, Peru. We love it here and hope you enjoy our city too. We would be very happy to help you discover some of the many great places here! We are always just a phone call or text away.

Why Juliana chose Downtown

Its a great little house with 3 bedrooms and comfy beds. The best part about this house is its location. Its the most safe and quiet of neighborhoods but it is walkable to downtown. You can hop on a bus to downtown Fayetteville area or Uber anywhere downtown for $6-8.

What makes this house unique

We pride ourselves on cleanliness and comfort. Our place is truly a retreat in downtown.

Darling & Immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this little gem in Raleigh. We were in town for my daughter’s graduation and really appreciated having this place to lay our heads. The house is brightly decorated and immaculate. The owner has also provided countless extras to make us comfortable, including many items I have never had provided by a VRBO host. We took a couple walks in the charming neighborhood and even ventured into downtown Raleigh. We had a wonderful stay.

Cute home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This cute, very updated house was perfect for our stay in Raleigh over Thanksgiving. The hosts thought of everything to welcome us - basket of goodies, wine, and very comfy sheets!

Thanks for a great stay!

Cute, quaint house with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time here for the weekend! The house was cute and perfect for our group of 6. The host was extremely attentive and easy to work with! We also loved how close we were to downtown and the neighborhood was perfect for a nice walk in the morning. We loved the quaint atmosphere and extra amenities offered to us throughout our stay. We would definitely stay here again!

Convenient Location, Generous Host!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at this property. We came to Raleigh for a wedding and were never more than a few miles from where we needed to be (downtown, Cameron Village). The host was very attentive and immediately responsive when I had questions about using the lockbox or the dishwasher. There is a small park adjacent to the property which made walking our dogs quick and easy as well. The neighborhood is great, the neighbors are all very friendly, and the sidewalks throughout this area make getting a little exercise very convenient. The house itself has been updated throughout and the host even provided an abundance of snacks and fruit for us to munch on. Although there is only one bathroom, the hot water heater is more than adequate to allow for a number of successive hot showers for all your guests. I can't say enough about this property. It was exactly what we needed, and I was particularly impressed by all of the cool light fixtures throughout. If you're stopping through Raleigh, and you need a cozy place to stay, then this is it!
