About the property

Well-kept, uncluttered, clean, spacious home in very quiet residential area

Less than 10 minutes from downtown and UNC campus, and an easy drive to RDU Airport, Duke University and other parts of Durham, Raleigh, etc. (The location is close to Highway 40.) Upright Yamaha piano, sound system, and other extras. From the large kitchen window you are likely to watch deer hanging out in the rear garden ... Beautiful woods and park nearby for walks, and house is just a few minutes away from Timberlyne area (excellent restaurants, movie theaters, shopping, etc.) Very convenient (free) public transport also nearby. Although I have a "firm" cancellation policy, I will try to issue a refund when possible, on a case by case basis (depending on whether I can still book the house for those dates, etc.). And though it states 5 p.m. check-in, I can usually accommodate an earlier arrival.

About Daniel Halperin

Over the past 40 years I have traveled widely, conducted research (in anthropology and public health) in dozens of countries, mostly in Africa, Latin America and Asia, and taught many different types of students (recently at the Harvard University School of Public Health). Our 2012 book, 'Tinderbox: How the West Sparked the AIDS Epidemic and How the World Can Finally Overcome It,' was a New York Times Editor's Choice. (You may read more about my work and background on my (UNC and tinderboxbook) sites. I love music (jazz and other kinds), good food, and hiking and biking, especially in this lovely part of North Carolina. The single most important thing to me is to be able to assist other people (family, friends, and 'strangers') in any reasonable way that I can.

What makes this house unique

Wonderful yet affordable entire house in desirable Chapel Hill neighborhood.

OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME>>>LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Chapel Hill, NC for the UM vs. UNC football game. We were two couples from Florida (Fort Lauderdale & St. Augustine).

The house was really close to to UNC, so it was so convenient for us. Also a Harris Teeter was just down the street, which was great for us since we had to buy stuff for tailgating before the game!

Loved that it was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, so we both had our own bathroom.

So nice to have the full kitchen with all the little extras that Daniel had for us to use and take advantage of both in cupboard and freezer. We cooked a nice dinner for our kids and their friends one night, which was so much fun!

We especially enjoyed the fireplace to relax bye and sit around each evening!

Saw 3 deer the first morning we were there in kitchen making coffee early (7AM).

If we go back up that way again, we will definitely rent Daniel's home again. Thanks Daniel for making our NC weekend, one we all will remember!

Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

Property as advertised. Very clean - paint looked fresh. Excellent and prompt communication and response from owner before, during and after stay. Very pretty wooded lot, a cross between suburban and country. We saw deer in the backyard several days. Nice location close to UNC, a park with a lake and shopping. Quiet, well-kept, safe neighborhood and street. Attractive décor with interesting art on walls and mantel. Well-stocked kitchen. Just a little issue with the propane fireplace - might have been us - but owner is investigating and fixing if necessary.

This house was perfect. It is very simple but has everything you need. It was very clean and beds were great. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. I would for sure stay again.

Cozy bungalow tucked away from the Hill

  • 5 of 5

Daniel's place was a wonderful home away from home. Even though his place is tucked away in the woods of Chapel Hill (can I just say I didn't know those neighborhoods existed), it was literally minutes away from the thriving downtown Chapel Hill area. We were there for a long weekend to do some college tours and hang out for the first football game of the year. Having a place to just chill out and relax was a wonderful retreat for us all. We'll definitely come back the next time we're in town.

Cute bungalow nestled in the woods of Chapel Hill

  • 5 of 5

The property is so conveniently located in Chapel Hill yet nestled in a quiet, wooded area of the town that you can get away from the hustle and bustle of a college town. Daniel's home is warm and inviting and provides all of the comforts of home. The next time we are visiting Chapel Hill, we hope to stay at Daniel's cute bungalow again. Great place!

This is a very nice cozy hse and peaceful neighborhood. If I would do another get together this would definitely be the place to go.The backyard caps it off with a feel of the woods though not a forest just a very laid out experience
