Craig lives no too far away from this location in Apex, NC with his three sons and enjoys coaching youth basketball, teaching Cisco Certified Network Associate courses and spending time with family and friends.
Craig purchased this House in 2014
Why Craig chose Southwest Raleigh
I purchased this property because it falls quite near my alma mater, keeping me in close ties with friends that became family and local university events. Bashford has a great location and is conveniently located in the Research Triangle Park (RTP) area. This home offers a lot of flexibility both in terms of lodging and entertaining for not only my family when we are here, but for my renters as well.
What makes this House unique
The Bashford has six spacious bedrooms that easily allow for small family gatherings and a convenient night's stay; keeping everyone close in a spacious home. The property's lot offers guests the opportunity to do some indoor/outdoor entertaining be they in the summer or fall months without having to go rent a local park. It has a nice amount of grass area for the kids, paved lot and covered deck w/a ceiling fan and patio seating for those that prefer a little less direct sunlight.

The house doesn't look very big from the outside, but once inside: holy moly! Three bedrooms upstairs, three baths, three bedrooms downstairs, and another bathroom down there. A kitchen on either floor, as well as laundry on both floors! Our family and extended family that was in town from afar for a wedding was more than comfortable for the weekend. We definitely would recommended this stay over the choice of a hotel for groups of four or more! If we come back to the area for Raleigh cousin #2's wedding, we will certainly book again!
Thank you for your review. We are elated that the house met your needs and offered you the space required for your extended family and a special occasion. We will be more than happy to host you all again for the next big celebration. Just be sure to book early, if it's a popular time of year :). Until next time!
Great home away from home!!!
We rented this for a large group for my nephews wedding in Raleigh. There was plenty of room for all and had everything needed to feel at home. Enjoyed sitting out on the deck in this very quiet neighborhood. Craig was great with communication and supplying all that was needed for a great weekend. Would highly recommend this home!!!!
Lots of space for our family gathering
We recently stayed a week at this location. It was a perfect "home base" for the family and guests who, like us were in town for our daughter's wedding. Any problems we addressed were immediately taken care of. Would definitely stay here again!
Thank you so much for your review! You and your guests were a pleasure to have. Williams Manor Properties would love to have you stay again soon!
House was easy to find. It was located close to stores and the event we were there for.
We had 14 people staying at the house. There were enough beds for everyone. The kitchen and living room upstairs were too small for more than 4 people. The kitchen and living room down stairs was big enough for everyone. I think the house could use a deep cleaning. Also would b nice if the walls were newly painted.
Thank you so much for your review. Williams Manor Properties is always looking to give guests the best experience. In addition to our regular guest booking cleanings, we also have deep cleans conducted on a recurring schedule as well. It is on our radar to have painting touch ups completed in the coming season. We appreciate your business and value your feedback.
It was perfect!
The Bashford House was exactly what we needed. Roomy, comfortable and well appointed. Great for adults and the kids! Felt like home! We’ll definitely return when in the RDU area. Highly recommended!!
Thank you so much for your review. I am very pleased that you and your family had such a comfortable stay. I hope you choose Williams Manor Properties for your future travels.
We loved it!
We had an awesome stay at Bashfotd house. The house was clean and well stocked. The only problem we had was the Roku for the tv. We had just never used it before, but the owner was very helpful and quick to respond. We had 14 people and there was plenty of room. The 2 kitchens and 2 living areas were a definite plus. We had 5 small children with us and the separate living room gave them an area to play inside. There was Plenty of parking also. Thank you for a great stay!
Thank you so much for your review! I am very glad that you and your group had such a comfortable, easy going stay. I hope you choose to stay with Williams Manor Properties for your future travels.
