      Cute, cozy home and convenient location

      We really enjoyed our stay. The house was decorated nicely, clean with comfy beds, had everything we needed, and the owner was communicative and hospitable. It was also located close to everywhere downtown that we went. Will definitely stay here again on another trip to Raleigh!

        We own a restaurant in Buxton on Hatteras island. We work our tails off most of the year. So we’ve made it an annual trip to go to Raleigh around State Fair time. We have unique taste and found Sunset Hills and thought it would be a cool place to stay. Well we couldn’t of picked a better place to stay! The house and decor are SO unique. We loved it so much we’d buy it if we could! If you like different I would highly recommend staying at Sunset Hills!

          Perfect in every way!

          This house is a fantastic find in Raleigh. It is neat and very clean and oh so charming. It is so comfortable. Just like home, like someone said. My sister in law said she wanted to live there. My son and now daughter in law used it as their home base for their wedding and it was perfect with all the hearts and love filled sayings throughout the house. Stacy was very helpful and very accommodating with our schedule. Thank you again Stacy! It is very apparent that the owners hearts went into the heart of the city! We will definitely use it again for any out of town guests!

          5/5 Excellent

            Beautiful place with quality amenities!

            We could not have been more pleased with this gem! The décor is such that it truly feels like a home. The pictures are great but you have to be there to get the full effect of the light streaming in - just lovely. Outdoor space is great. Great location. Hosts were wonderful to work with in every way. My family is so pleased we had the opportunity to enjoy - and I will be back to this VRBO!

              This house was perfect for myself, spouse, two boys and our dog. It's everything advertised and more!
