We do not recommend this property unless concerns are addressed.
The location of the property was accurate and it was quite close to Duke University, the University of North Carolina, and restaurants, thus making it very convenient to both Durham and Chapel Hill. Additionally, the exterior of the property was well maintained and the house is in a very nice neighborhood. However, the interior of the home needs to be thoroughly cleaned. Yes, it is vacuumed and dusted with the bathrooms wiped down, but the bathroom drawers, dresser drawers, refrigerator/freezer, and the glasses/dishes were not clean and there were personal items left in the drawers, such as a used toothbrush and toothpaste in the master bath, and perishable items left in the refrigerator as well as a broken shelf. The soap/shampoo racks in the master shower are rusted and the towels are quite used and limited. Additionally, the closets were locked so there was either no bedroom hanging space or cheap metal coat racks placed in already quite crowed bedrooms. The garage had quite a bad smell due to trash left in the trash can (we removed it), and it is also off limits for renters' usage. Television is unavailable and we could not make the existing system work for movie viewing. We did not pursue any assistance with our concerns as we did not have the time for that nor did we feel that we should have to deal with the many things that needed addressed during our limited family Christmas visit. Over the years we have stayed in several vacation rental properties throughout the USA and this property did not meet the standards set by other comparable properties. Unless these concerns are addressed we would not recommend this property.
