Just booked in Durham
Our renovated 1905 home is quietly tucked away in Historic Morehead Hill, a Durham neighborhood just southwest of the city center. There a sunny and peaceful room, cozy bed and full, private bathroom await you after a day of sightseeing. From here, it's a 10-minute walk to Downtown, DPAC, & Duke East. See the "Getting Around" section and the map below to help you determine how far we are from your favorite spot. Continental breakfast included. We encourage you to read our entire listing.
Our historic home built around 1905 has been completely renovated and updated. The home is located in a diverse, emerging, historic neighborhood called Morehead Hill (see the Neighborhood section!). It is very safe, active, and near everything if you're willing to walk (we and our neighbors walk just about everywhere - see the Getting Around section!). Overall the home is just shy of 1600 sq/ft, with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Your bedroom, which has a full-size bed and an attached, private, full bath, is located in the front of the house, just inside the front door for your ease in coming and going. Plus, the room has both honeycomb shades and black-out drapes for adjusting your desired level of privacy and light. Your quiet, sunny room includes a desk, reading chair, and the bed is extra comfy with a pillow top. People spend a lot of time outside enjoying the beautiful North Carolina weather and our neighborhood is no different. There is a large front porch for sipping some tea and a wonderful screened in back deck for morning coffee or relaxing with a cold beer. While you can't see it from the street, our backyard is like a little green cave with mature trees and a little creek. We especially love how private, quiet and wooded it is even though we are so close to downtown. From our screened-in back porch we've spotted foxes, owls, hawks, raccoons, opossums, and an abundance of squirrels and birds.
Morehead Hill is a designated historic neighborhood which is rich in history and beauty. It is a primarily older, working-class neighborhood that is transitioning to a younger, middle-class, family neighborhood. People are drawn here for the houses, the Montessori Magnet grade school, and proximity to Downtown Durham and Duke University. The neighbors, people from all walks of life, are friendly and warm which adds richness, charm and character to this diverse area. A few of our neighbors are African-American, Asian or Hispanic. Some are from working-class families who have lived in the neighborhood for years. A few of our neighbors are older retirees who never want to move. Some of our neighbors have quite a bit of wealth and others are economically challenged. We have many couples, some with children, some without children, some older empty-nesters, some gay, some straight and some single folks just starting out on their own. There are renters and owners mixed in together. It's diverse! Currently there are five properties (including ours) that are renovated to look like new on our street and 3 that are not. This is typical of the entire neighborhood with homes in various stages of reconstruction and renovation (or not). It is safe and quiet and just keeps getting more and more beautiful as each home is revitalized. Despite historians considering this is North Carolina's first suburb, this is a city neighborhood, not a subdivision where every home is the same. Each home was built during a different era for an individual family based on their wealth at the time. Each home has taken on the personality of the families who lived in them year after year, and while there is a consistent look and feel to the neighborhood thanks to its historic designation, it is not Mayberry. We also don't have a homeowners' association making people do things to beautify their dwellings. We encourage you to use Street View where you can "tour" the neighborhood to see if the it meets your needs to experience a 5-star stay. The revitalization in this neighborhood is attracting many new businesses to the area. The Durham City CoOp opened just a few blocks away and new joints, Grub, Local Yogurt, Joe Van Gogh Coffee opened this summer. We have older businesses that are supported by life-long customers mixed in with new entrepreneurs. You will need to walk a few blocks out of our residential neighborhood to get to places to eat, drink and shop. Please see the "Getting Around" section under the Location tab at the top of the listing page and review the map on this listing page to get a sense of where we are in relation to your desired destination. Ask Alice about her "doily" theory if you want to know more. We love it here and we hope you will too!
  • We loved staying here. The room was very comfortable and spacious, and it's in a beautiful home. Alice was a wonderful host and showed exceptional hospitality. We really enjoyed chatting with her over breakfast and learning more about the Durham area. The location was perfect. Very close to downtown Durham. Alice had great recommendations for what we should do in our short time there. We also really enjoyed meeting George (the adorable Basset Hound)! Would definitely recommend this place!

  • Alice was a perfect host for me. Her house was very clean and amazingly beautiful. She had everything I needed, even allergic medicine! Thank you for your hospitality and robust responsibility as a host, Alice.

  • Alice and Jeff have a great home and are very welcoming, enjoyable hosts. Breakfast was wonderful, and I enjoyed a good night's sleep. The quintessential Airbnb experience.

    Eric2016-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay with Alice & Jeff who are both very friendly and helpful. Everything was as described and the house itself is very cosy. It's in a very nice and safe neighborhood with easy access to downtown by foot. A lovely breakfast with cereal, fruits, bread, tea/coffee etc was provided each morning. The bedroom is spotlessly clean and the the ensuite bathroom is great. WiFi worked well too.

    Kieran2015-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Alice and Jeff were incredibly warm and gracious in hosting my partner and I as we scouted places to live in Durham. Their beautiful home was a wonderful launching pad and armed with Alice's tips of the best of Durham we had a great time! The room was well equipped and cozy and the bathroom thoughtfully stocked. My favorite piece of the house was the screened in porch overlooking green space. When we move to Durham this summer we will have at least two friends there :) Thank you both for having us!!

    Sarah2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Alice and Jeff's home. Large beautiful bedroom with private bath. Great Wi Fi excellent location. I will stay again when I return to Durham

    Lisa2016-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful experience with all details superb. Requests encouraged.

    John2018-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Alice and Jeff's home is elegant, comfortable, and beautifully situated between Duke and downtown. More importantly, however: Alice and Jeff are wonderful hosts because they are warm, funny, and thoughtful individuals who genuinely want to connect with their guests. I felt welcomed to Durham in all sense of the word. Thank you both!

    You'll sleep in a loft nestled in the trees, and wake up to the songs of the morning birds. Super comfy and country casual, the tiny house has everything you'll need in 120 TINY square feet of charm, right in our backyard in case you need anything at all. *** This cozy spot is for folks who like it simple, small, rustic and sweet. ***
    Our Tiny House in the Trees is for whimsical and playful folks who like things intimate, cozy and homespun. You'll be charmed by how comfy and relaxed it feels to nest in an itty bitty home. (Super itty bitty.) Snuggle down! Enjoy your morning coffee on the porch and sleep snuggled up in the loft. Please really expect a TINY house. Indeed, this house is smaller than a hotel room. The Tiny House is in the backyard of our home. Our pup and our little boy are sometimes out back playing. You'll come in and go out through a a big gate at the top of the driveway. There's a latch on the gate that should be closed at all times. And just so you know, there's always a house project going on in the backyard. : )
    Northgate Park straddles I85 on the north side of downtown Durham. Our place is in the northern half of Northgate, about a seven minute drive from downtown. It's a sweet and quiet neighborhood filled with friendly families riding their bikes and walking their dogs. Within a couple miles you'll find all you need: supermarkets, lots of yummy restaurants, the Life and Science Museum, walking and biking trails, big beautiful parks and lots more. Please consult the local map for resources. Or ask us! You'll definitely need a car to get around from this neighborhood. And so as not to tax the neighborhood, it would be best to bring only one car and please only park in front of our house. Actual mileage to... Downtown (the square): 1.9 miles Duke (east campus): 2.2 miles Whole Foods: 2.1 miles Farmer's Market: 1.7 miles
  • This Tiny house is so romantic, I stayed over for a business trip and loved every inch of the place that I made a video about it on my Youtube channel. to see how cool this place looks just type "Inside America Durham Tiny House"

  • Will stay again!

  • I have always thought I would love to live in a tiny house and I was wholly correct. Fully stocked, it exceeded all of my needs. It also had my favorite feature in all places I have traveled to so far: shelves to put my belongings on. Such a simple thing. Also, I was sad that my checkin/checkout timing and work schedule prevented me from meeting my hosts, because they were super supportive and helpful, I am sure meeting them would have been an absolute delight. Luckily, I have need to travel to Durham again, so hopefully we will have a chance to connect!

    Stacey2016-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • This tiny house was perfect for a weekend getaway. It was cute, cozy, and a great opportunity to "try out" tiny house living. Jarrett and Mira were extremely helpful and gracious hosts.

    Randall2016-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Tiny House is such a cozy place to stay when spending time in Durham. Even on our third trip to the Tiny House, Mira and Jarret are thoughtful hosts and went out of their way to make sure we had a fantastic stay. I know we will stay again!

    Angie2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Like everyone else it seems, we loved it here. Jarret gave spot on restaurant/bar recommendations, and the house was a was cozy, gorgeous, homey, sweet stop on our road trip. The loft bed was super comfy, and watching the afternoon storm from inside the trees was totally awesome. It's in a residential neighborhood but very close to (so. Many. ) coffee shops, restaurants, groceries, bars, etc. We also were very appreciative of the yoga class passes they left.

    Sarah2016-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Looked just like the pictures! So charming, very clean, easy to find! We loved this tiny house so much and would definitely visit again :)

    Lindsey2016-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jarret and Mira are perfect hosts. We spent 3 nights in their tiny home while attending an event in downtown Durham. The location and neighborhood couldn't be better. Very close to downtown, in a safe and quiet neighborhood, very awesome. The space is very clean, cozy and comfortable. We will definitely be back!

  • The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    Matthew2016-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was as advertised. A little dirty, but a great value, private, and prompt communication from the host. I would stay again.

    Austin2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Place is as described. The host was very communicative and helpful. FYI the coffeemaker is a Keurig so didn't suit our needs but Cinnamon Cocoa-his recommendation- is an awesome coffee shop, great coffee and really cool vibe.

    Toni2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Brian is an awesome and accommodating host. I was freezing but he helped accommodate me to keep warm.

    Vina2016-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • The ant traps were overflowing with ants. Cockroaches woke me up running across the floor. Trash left in the trash can. Wi-fi didn't ever work. It is super cheap for the area. For staying there on a traveling nursing assignment did not work and I had to check into a hotel. That being said the outdoorshower has amazing water pressure and super hot.

    Cassandra2016-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Not a great neighborhood , but no issues

    Wes2016-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • liked this spot especially for the price. feels kind of like a fort. you definitely have to be nimble to get up and down the loft, and bed is a little lumpy. the outdoor shower was great.

    We had a great stay here! It was clean, well-decorated and equipped with all that we needed. Paulo was prompt with his responses as well. We would definitely consider booking this again. It is close to Cameron Village, which has no lack of places to eat and shop. It is also close to downtown Raleigh, which has a lot of great places, too! The only "uncomfortable" thing about our stay was the temperature. It was a super cold weekend in NC, so the heat had to keep going the entire time and it didn't reach the bedroom very well. It was also a bit loud when on. So we had to bundle up and get under blankets to get warm. Other than that minor thing, we very much enjoyed our stay!
