Only a .90 mile walk to the center of North Hills or a 10 minute/$10 Uber ride to the center of downtown Raleigh. $12 dollar Uber ride to Carter/PNC. I have a spare guest room that is rarely used as well as a guest bath (across the hall). Guest will have sole use of the bath as I have my own in the Master. There are two comfy couches in the living room and I have an air mattress (bring your own sleeping bags). I have a very friendly dog who may or may not be around.
