Perfect home for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well maintained home. Extremely well suited to our multi-generational family due to the four bedrooms on two floors, four bathrooms and two separated seating areas. Enjoyed our stay.

What a great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was great every room had it's own bathroom , at first the house looks small from the outside but it is very roomy on the inside . I would definitely stay again .

Perfect But Flawed

  • 3 of 5

We were guests in The Carolina in May 2018. We were very happy with the property location and the 4-bedroom, 4-bath layout. Your property is beautiful, but it is flawed. There were safety and health issues we’re obligated to bring to your attention:

Only 1 of the 4 lights in the ceiling of the kitchen would light; the remaining 3 light-bulbs were burned out. Cooking and moving around in a dark environment was unsafe.

The light at the lower turn of the stairwell was also burned out, creating an unsafe walkway into the lower level. It made one of the guests so nervous that she couldn't’t go down to use that space. Unfortunately for us, that was one of the 5 guests sharing a room with someone else, and the King beds are both on the lower level, none on the upper level. This created an inconvenience for us, as the two individuals sharing a room did not have a king size bed.

The smoke detector on the first level was completely dismantled and removed from the ceiling of the hallway off the kitchen, another potentially serious safety hazard.

All three shower curtains had mold on the curtains. This is a health hazard.

The first level shower/bathtub (the one just off the kitchen) has a slippery base, with no texture or roughness on the bottom. The guests found it too slippery to use, and it was necessary to share bathroom showers designated to other guests. That was unfortunate, as we all thought we’d have our own space in a bathroom.

The lower level bedroom to the right as descending the stairs has a lamp on the dresser that is missing the rolling on-off switch, exposing only the long, narrow screw onto which the roller should be. This required plugging in and unplugging the lamp from the wall for usage.

The water dispenser on the refrigerator had such minimal flow that it was rendered useless.

Pictures and communication were shared with owner during our stay; no improvements were made before our departure.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. Prior to your arrival we hadn’t received any of these complaints from previous guests so I was unaware of these issues We have addressed the light bulb and shower curtain comments with the housekeeper and should be taken care of in the next few days As for the beds we do indicate which rooms have which size beds - if needing particular sizes on a certain floor is a priority please simply ask the host and we could further clarify Otherwise it might be best for other accommodations to have been made Thanks again for the feedback so we can address these items :)

Beautiful newer home ...Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This home looks exactly like the photos & is very convenient to downtown Chapel Hill. It is very reasonably priced especially as it is only 5 or 6 years old & has 4 bedrooms & 4 baths. The kitchen could be a little better equipped & we had a bath hand towel as our only kitchen towel. Also we definitely could have used more bath towels & some were very thin. We found this unusual since the furniture & bedding were of very good quality. There is a phone number provided for the housekeeper but her voicemail was not set up. There was also a mixup about our date of arrival (not our fault) & the house had not been cleaned yet. Unfortunately the owner, Carla, was out of the country with a 12 hour time difference. She did eventually get back to us & put us up in a beautiful townhouse for the first night. The house was clean & ready the next morning. After the misunderstanding of that first night, we had a great time & enjoyed staying in this house. Once I got in touch with Carla, she was very accessible & accommodating. She also gave us a refund for the first night. We definitely recommend this house & know we had some unusual circumstances. Just ask for more towels 😀?
