Fully Furnished Condo - Walking Distance to UNC Chapel Hill
average rating of 4.5 based on 14 reviews

Location, location, location.

  • 4 of 5

This property is close to all the action. It is an easy block or two to the bus that takes you all around UNC campus. It is also only two blocks to some restaurants including Asian food and a French bistro that served dinner ( no breakfast so may want to pre buy something or their is a gas station walkable that may have supplies). Every morning we cooked eggs as the kitchen was well stocked for our four night stay.

We spent a day at UNC and was amazed by how beautiful it was and how friendly the people were. It was also an easy drive to explore Weaver Street Market in Carrboro. The second day we toured Duke and NC state which were a 20-25 minute drive away. Our last day we did not have a car and checked the "book" in the townhome. It told us how to get on the walking trail ( two blocks away) that ended two blocks from a mall. We took sidewalks for the last two blocks and went to the movies and ate at Village Burger. It was very convenient.

We enjoyed have two bedrooms ( one with a queen the other with a bunk and a single) and a full bath and half bath. Not having to share a room or bath with our two teens is always a plus.

The only thing I would mention ( and this I believe is a new VRBO/ HomeAway thing) when booking there is an added cost to your total. Again this is not an InnTown Rentals thing as other rentals we used through this service also tacked on this fee. It is still a great price but ends up costing a little more because of that.

Great location and good value.

  • 4 of 5

The unit was clean and orderly. Everything worked (a/c,etc.). Such a bonus to have a kitchen and full size washer and dryer for a 7 day vacation college hunting. Parking was good, even for my full size pickup. While there could be some updating done, it's tough to beat the price and location. We enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We do try very hard to offer excellent value for the price, and our location within walking distance of UNC eliminates the parking problems that everyone experiences when visiting the university. We are glad you enjoyed your visit, and feel free to contact us again if you ever return to Chapel Hill.

Location, Location, Location!!! Comfortable though dated

  • 3 of 5

Convenient to UNC and the UNC Hospitals; a short walk on a private path brings you to several wonderful (The Kitchen, acclaimed) restaurants; easy access to the Bolin Creek Trail (paved) was a perfect spot for walking our two small dogs....

The owner-host is very accommodating and easily reached. The unit was clean and the paint fresh, however, it has dark woodwork making the interior unit's 1st floor seem dark.

The internet service was good. We never turned the TV on, so cannot comment on that.

We would return except for one party's bad knee, which was aggregated by the stairs. Then again, maybe it will be replaced!

For most travelers this is a good spot to stay at a very reasonable price.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review, and our housekeeper mentioned how wonderfully clean you left the apartment. For that she thanks you! If you ever come back, we have a 2 bedroom unit with both bedrooms on the first floor if that would help.

Great price, great owner, fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

I spent a week in May of 2016 at this property. I found it to be a great value for anyone looking to visit Chapel Hill, NC for a night or even an extended stay.

Here are the really great things about the condo:

I studied at UNC for a year so I am relatively familiar with the area. In my opinion this condo is very well situated to campus and all that Chapel Hill has to offer. Though the climb up Hillsborough is somewhat steep, walking to Franklin Street and the UNC Campus from the condo is not difficult. The condo is also somewhat secluded and the two bedroom unit that I stayed in had a generous patio on the ground level and deck just off the second floor main bedroom. Parking was also not an issue and I did not hear any noise from neighbors - even though most units appeared to be occupied when I stayed.

The interior is actually nicer than it appears on VRBO. I was pleasantly surprised. In my unit at least, the ground level had colored concrete floors. The upstairs is carpeted, but the carpet was very clean. It is also well laid out and quite spacious with 1.5 bathrooms. There is also ample closet space. I was alone, but I can't see why a family of four would not be very comfortable in the condo.

The WiFi internet was reliable and quick, at least when I needed to use it. The A/C was also very reliable and could cool the condo down relatively quickly. I was also very impressed with the level of detail the owner provided prior to check-in. He was also very responsive to emails.

Here are the not so great things about the condo:

It was generally quite clean when I checked in but there were some cobwebs hanging from the ceiling especially in the stairwell. It would also really help if someone vacuumed under the couch cushions. The kitchen is in dire need of a refresh. The appliances are ancient. The dishwasher handle appeared to require duct tape to keep it shut. I imagine it worked fine, but did not want to experiment. The cabinets are towards the low end of contractor grade. The upstairs deck should probably be replaced or at least refinished and repaired. Lastly, if you like to cook, bring your own knives and non-stick saucepan. The knives in the condo are dull and of low quality.

All that being said, at this very reasonable price point I don't expect most guests (including me) would expect brand new appliances and cutlery throughout. In addition, the washing machine and dryer did appear to be new.

I would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We are glad you had a pleasant stay! Regarding the kitchen, we do realize that some of our condos have older appliances. But they all work well. And this condo is the only one that has a slight problem with the dishwasher handle. It shuts OK, but we have the duct tape there to keep it shut "just in case"! In any event, we always state in our documentation that we are glad to replace any cookware, etc. that does not meet our guests' needs, and we are generally available 24/7 to correct any problems that are brought to our attention. Thanks again, and we hope you have a pleasant summer.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We are retired and in our seventies. We have been coming down to N.C. to watch spring sports at the local colleges for a few years now. This year we searched for a place to stay short term where we could have a patio, or deck for our wine time every evening. We were soooo happy to find Chapel Hill Inn Town. The location was perfect, and we got a deck, and a patio with wooded view. We could cook out in the provided outdoor grill, or in cooler weather, enjoy a real fireplace in our living room. The kitchen was well stocked, and it was great to have our own washer and dryer in the unit.

We will return next year !

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Peggy. I was out of town during the first part of your visit, and our manager told me what a delightful couple you were. When I returned, I found that to be totally true. It's hard to believe you are in your 70's because you act like you are in your 20's! I am so glad you had a nice visit, and Lauralee mentioned how clean and tidy you left the apartment. I hope you have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing you again.

Relaxing and full of adventure

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBOs and this was a gem. The condo was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed. The owner contacted us a short time after our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed.

This weekend stay was packed with adventures. We loved Eno State Park that was only a short drive away. The thing we discovered accidentally, though turned out to be one of the best finds of the trip. The Bolin Creek hiking trail was only about one block from the condo. This paved trail is perfect for hikiing or biking. It leads to the Community Park that has other walking trails.

We also enjoyed shopping on Franklin Street and in the various shopping centers. Chapel Hill has one of the best Whole Foods I have found, and Southern Seasons is a unique shopping experience.

Whether you are wishing for a quiet retreat or an adventure-filled trip, I could not ask for a better best to stay, particularly for the value. I will definitely be back.
