We use VRBO frequently, but this was our first experience trying to use it outside of beach/ski areas. 6 weeks in advance, we didn’t find many choices for a Raleigh location and holiday dates. We expanded to include Cary and found this. It was perfect for our party of 7 adults, 1 kid, 1 dog. The rooms were as shown/described: Upstairs: 2 bedrooms with queens. 1 upstairs bathroom, good size with a full tub, toilet nook, and sink. Upstairs, a 3rd bedroom with a single. Downstairs: a queen bedroom with a full bath (shower stall only but it is a good size). The 5th bedroom is formatted as a sitting room to the queen bedroom and you walk through it to get into the queen bedroom. It has a double futon. There are futons in a couple of the other rooms as well, we did not need these. There are 2 separate LRs with couches and chairs and 2 separate DRs. There is a mudroom and a large laundry room. There are gas logs in the fireplace and there is new propane fire pit out back. What I loved about the place was the layout – the downstairs bedrooms are at one end of the house, making it possible for the “young’uns” to play games late into the night at the dining room table while my parents slept undisturbed. My parents also left for an early morning flight the last day and their movements on the 1st floor did not wake up anyone on the 2nd floor. The street is moderately busy but we were not disturbed by any traffic noise. A welcome surprise was the very large supply of the following, most unusual for anywhere we have rented previously: toilet paper, paper towels, bottled water (literally they supplied I think 3-4 cases, 2 of which were already in the fridge), dishwasher soap, and laundry pods. Most places just give you a starter pack of that type of thing. There were also plenty of towels, washcloths, hand towels, extra blankets, and pillows. Our dog (45 lbs, 9 years old) was accepted and they refunded our additional deposit promptly. The fenced yard is huge. There are a couple spots where a tiny dog might be able to escape but not a dog as large as ours. We walked her around on her leash until we were satisfied she couldn’t escape. We also managed to lock ourselves out late on Christmas night (sorry Edie!) and they came over to let us in very quickly. The location is close to a bagel shop and two grocery stores – probably only 2 miles drive. It is a good area – we all felt safe. We would definitely rent this house again in the future.
