Great location
94% of recent guests who stayed nearby gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our house is very close to Duke University - in fact you can walk! (although there are not sidewalks the whole way). We are also a very short drive to downtown Durham. We have two young children, so our home is particularly well set up for families. You'll notice we are listing our home primarily for Duke graduation weekend - to give visiting families the chance to stay in a comfortable home that is walkable to Duke's graduation ceremony. So the price reflects a premium for high demand time.

The space
We have a large family room, living room, a dining room that seats 8, and a kitchen that seats 4. The master bedroom has a king bed and its own bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The third bedroom has a pull-out couch (very comfortable, Ikea brand), and a toddler bed. All bedrooms have room-darkening shades. We also have an extra double mattress and a double air mattress we can set up in one of the downstairs living spaces, if you need extra bed options.

Guest access
You will have access to the whole house. You can park 2-3 cars in the driveway and we also have on street parking. We have wireless internet and a Roku with streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. We also have cable. You are welcome to use the washer and dryer. You are also welcome to use anything in the kitchen if you plan on cooking, including spices and condiments.

Our neighborhood is located very conveniently to Duke University and Downtown Durham. There is a lovely fitness and running trail through the Duke Forest, with an entrance conveniently located at the end of our street.
