We are a semi-retired couple who spend several months a year travelling. We are healthy, happy and curious about the world. We like slow travel, staying in one spot for a while, visiting local markets, discovering neighborhoods, listening to music, eating the area specialties, and hiking the countryside. Jerry owns a software business and can work anywhere the internet is good. Deborah is retired from a health research career where she was lucky enough to travel much of the world. We have owned several home over the years and understand the value of a well-cared-for home. We are also neat-freaks, so your home will be in good hands.

About Our Home

We live in a quiet, comfortable, single-story town home, in an iconic university town. Our home has a wood-burning fireplace, central air conditioning, electric heat, fully equipped kitchen with small eating area, a dining area with six chairs, two full baths with showers and tubs, and nice furnishings. We have two bedrooms with a queen bed in one and a double bed in the other. We also have a queen sized inflatable mattress. Our third bedroom has been converted to an office with computer, multiple monitors, printer, and scanner in case you need to work while here. (Very good and fast internet is available for about $100/month should you choose to buy that.) We have a small private patio with table and chairs, a grill, and a few potted herbs. You can use our small SUV if you obtain insurance. There are parking spaces very near the door. And we have two bikes for your use. This area, with the towns of Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh, is blessed with many universities, lots of cultural activities, endless outdoor fun--parks, bike trails, lakes, forests--and great sporting events. We are within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, library and movie theaters. This is a good base from which to explore cities like Washington DC, or visit the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is considered a foodie haven, with many ethnic restaurants, breweries, pork barbeque, and bakeries. If you are looking for hipster cool or southern charm, or some of both, this is the place!

Free city buses run all day long. It is an easy commute to Atlantic coast with beaches and islands, or west to the Blue Ridge mountains. Amtrak trains and buses go daily to Washington DC.

Other Comments

We are especially interested in non-simultaneous exchanges. We travel for several months each year. While we are gone, our condo is (usually) empty and would be available for other travelers who live in locations we want to visit at some point. So, for example, you could stay in our place while we travel to Mexico; we then stay in your place in Australia while you go to wherever. If this of interest to you, let's talk!
