bungalow on franklin st

  • 5 of 5

What a amazing house.There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room and the small touches that i'm sure are Kippy's such as the doors in the down stairs room.Kitchen is small but we were all in there cooking and talking on Sunday morning and it was like i was a kid and at my granny's house.You can't beat the location and its on its on little gravel road.

Perfect for Family of Five

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Tarheel House four nights on a late December college tour. Perfectly located, we had quick access to UNC just up the road and easily made trips to Durham and Raleigh to visit Duke and NC State. With four bedrooms each of our kids had their own room which was a major bonus. Cute clean bungalow worked great all around, Caffe Driade just through the woods an added pleasure. Kippy was very responsive and we would definitely stay here again.

Great location, easy to get to UNC and Franklin Street.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. We had plenty of room and it was great to have a place to chill for the weekend between Late Night with Roy and the Saturday football game. Kippy was great and even sent us a bus map. Will definitely stay here again!

In a tucked away street with privacy. Excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was perfect. The location of this house couldn't have been a better one in relation to everything we needed to do while in Chapel Hill. The actual house was also perfect. More than enough room for 3 of us and the owner was very quick to get in touch with. 100% will stay here again. Thank you!!!

Good People, Big Place, Comfortable Stay, Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay in a pinch, and the Tarheel House seemed like a good fit. Looking the photos and reviews it appeared to be large, in a nice area, and the owners seemed reasonable. Upon renting that is exactly what we found. The home has lots of space, the area is nice for walking, close to UNC, and there are plenty of stores/restaurants close by. Kippy quickly got back to us on any issue that we had, and in fact went far and beyond trying to make our stay comfortable. She was willing to do just about everything, address any issue that might come up, and generally just wanted us to be satisfied. Can't say enough about the place. Highly recommended.

Quintessential Chapel Hill

  • 5 of 5

When my friends and I saw Tarheel House, we thought it looked like something special. We were not disappointed. The decor and amenities were everything we could've hoped for, and more. We have never enjoyed a trip to Chapel Hill so much, and we owe the lion's share of the credit for our wonderful experience to staying in Tarheel House. Such a cute home with plenty of room for everyone, and probably the most fun of any place we've have stayed. We are very excited to come back. And we adore Kippy and Tom! Easily the kindest and most helpful owners on VRBO.
