“Fantastic apartment w/ high quality fixtures dream location & superb hosts”
Reviewed 19 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Every aspect of our stay was ideal. Quality of all fixtures and host helpfulness made this apartment our favorite in a 6 week Europe vacation. Owners are well prepared and go the extra mile to make their guest welcome and comfortable. The historic town of Durham is small enough that you can enter and exit easily to enjoy surrounding areas...or stay put and relax after the hectic most vacations turn into.
This apartment & location were the best surprise of a well planned European adventure.

“Beautiful space, beautiful location, caring owners”
Reviewed 29 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

It is a fabulous apartment in a perfect location. Easy to walk into the city but quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The apartment was very comfortable, immaculate and had everything we needed. There was a beautiful welcome basket, good coffee, lovely soaps and shampoos. Kitchen is really well equipped. Chris and Wendy were very friendly and at the end of the phone if there were any questions. Felt pampered and relaxed. Lovely lovely.

My wife and I needed to stay in or around Durham at late notice with a very energetic toddler. This apartment was the perfect answer. Located almost adjacent to the Marriott Hotel, it's a very well kept and well appointed duplex apartment with doors opening directly onto the riverside. We had a great stay. It was very easy to coordinate with the owner, Chris. And he very helpfully forwarded on the toothbrush we acidentally left. Will definitely stay again. It's a great choice for families as it has two double bedrooms upstairs giving the opportunity to put the little ones to bed early and still enjoy the evening. It's also more than big enough for two couples to share without feeling cramped.
