  • Great Location


    We were there for our son's wedding weekend. The apartment was located very near downtown and in a lovely old community. I don't think the pictures accurately represent the condition of the house. Be aware there is a lot of clutter and if you are allergic to dust, I wouldn't recommend. The homeowner was pleasant but did not respond to my emails regarding questions. It was necessary to call as she did not respond to texts either.

  • Lovely home


    A conference brought us to Raleigh, and this home is less than 5 minutes from the Convention Center. The rooms are all well-appointed, with lovely colors, furniture and objects d'art. Enjoyed our visit, and look forward to staying here again.
