Our neighborhood was built in the 70's and is quiet. The neighbors know one another, frequently walk around the neighborhood and watch out for each other. Interestingly this neighborhood has a very integrated demographic mix. There are people from every continent as well a some "old timers" who have been here since the neighborhood was built.
We are located a few blocks from the bus line for public transportation. Downtown is a just a short 8 minutes away where you will find the Duke Energy Center and Red Hat Amphitheater, and the Convention Center, and of course, NC State and the State Farmers Market are just a few miles from downtown as well.
The inner belt (440) line is just 1.5 miles off of which you will find Carter-Finely Stadium, PNC Arena, and the North Carolina State Fair Grounds a short 10-minute drive. The outer belt line (540) is only 5 miles from which a short 15-minute drive will get you to RDU and the Research Triangle Park. We can arrange to pick you up from the airport for a $25 fee.
There is plenty of shopping with 3 Walmarts within 5 miles as well as Triangle Town Center Mall. Most Large chain restaurants can be found within 5 miles as well as many local ones too.
Cary, Apex, Knightdale, Morrisville are 20 minutes away while Durham and Chapel Hill are 30-50 minutes. UNC is in Chapel Hill while Duke Hospital is in Durham along with the Durham Bulls and the Durham Performing Arts Center DPAC.

About John and Jenni Faison
John and Jenni love to use their home to make others feel welcome. Ever since purchasing in '04 we have provided a place to live for many. We are glad to offer our 1st floor as an exclusive, private rental space where any family or group can relax and rest while enjoying the Raleigh area. Personally, we enjoy the outdoors, reading and politics, getting to know other cultures and sharing God's love with those around us.
John and Jenni Faison purchased this House in 2004
Why John and Jenni Faison chose Neuse
When we first viewed this house years ago, it need lots of TLC, but we liked it because it is huge! It is also very close to downtown Raleigh and many stores and shops are conveniently located nearby. Now we like it because of the versatility of the rental space in the 1st floor; we can host very large groups or families or just a few people and everyone is very happy with the space. 2 private bedrooms and the huge den with a 50" TV make it so that some can have quiet time and others can enjoy being together as a group. The awesome brick patio with sunshade and waterfall/fishpond are a great draw for relaxing and eating. Even kids are welcome with the trampoline, grassy yard and play-fort. Many guests are made comfortable right away with ample parking space very close to the guest entrance!
What makes this House unique
The patio is our favorite place to relax. Surrounded by live plants and flowers one can sit beside a waterfall and watch the fish and frogs in the water feature. Most of the summer the Water Lilies bloom from early morning until early afternoon. A canopy provides relief from the sun during the day and at night the canopy lights allow one to feel as if they are on a tropical vacation. Eat breakfast or grill on the patio. You can entertain 8 around a huge table. North Carolina has many months of beautiful weather to enjoy the out doors.

Cozy rooms and comfortable accommodations at this Raleigh rental!
Our group of six had a great stay at this property in Northeast Raleigh. Everything was arranged as requested by our group. It was clean and organized when we arrived, and it offered a great recreational room for socializing with family and friends! Would rent-again without a moment's thought! Keep up the great work Jenni and John!
Jenni and John were so attentive they made sure we were comfy and catered to all of our needs. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in NC. Thank You Jenni and John.
Worth the money
The property was very clean and relaxing. Had no problems with the manager great customer service. Have already told friends about this place to stay if they are ever headed north and need a quite clean space to stay for a night or two to break up their trip.
Thanks Keith for your kind review. We would love to host you again sometime or your friends that may be traveling in the area!
Clean. Comfortable for our family of six.
Lower floor of home is dedicated for hosting guests. Even though we have small kids, we felt welcome. Garden is lovely and the kids played in the yard.
Thank you so much for your review. Please come again sometime!
We had a nice stay here for 1 month.
Jenni and John are very nice people and are good hosts.
We took the area because of the outdoor area, we have used the grill and the patio a lot and the beds in the bedroom are very comfortable to sleep in.
If I'm going to pull something down, the kitchen is a little worn and there is little space for making something on the bench, so you have to use the table.
The house is near to everything, wallmart,mall and downtawn Raleigh
Raleigh has beautiful Green-ways for walking or bike riding. There are many lovely parks as well. We are close to Falls Lake where there are many state recreation areas.
