Renting a private, furnished room in 2 bedroom townhouse in lovely home, filled w/ antiques and windows. We are in wooded area w/ lots of vegetation and birds. Must be okay with 2 hypoallergenic shih-poos. As I am a culinary instructor/ personal chef, do a lot of prep/development work here as it is my office...Only one guest allowed at a time, preferably a female who needs a safe and comfortable room with shared bath (with daytime staff.) This is a peaceful environment; close to RTP and 1-40.
As an artist, as well as chef, my home has a sense of "outside in" with lots of handmade wreaths. We have a fireplace, several decks and a little garden. The garage is filled with my catering and craft supplies, so we do park outside in driveway and on (URL HIDDEN) near everything from Southpoint, RTP, Duke and 15 minutes to UNC!
There are 3 ways to access the downstairs. Folks who have been guests or roommates, seem to work so much during the day, that they want a cozy room and sleep...I have a living room w/ TV and a picnic table on deck that is wonderful during the spring.

I will be glad to help direct my guests who are not from here and share my knowledge of lovely Woodcroft and the surrounding areas.
I insist on neatness, no loud music as this is my haven. My little dogs are guardians and tend to let us know when there is someone at the door...Must like dogs as they love attention.
Must understand recycling and need of quietness. MUST be neat.

Zacki was the first woman to take her beloved Lexington pork BBQ to the streets of NYC. Her passion for fresh regional food was rekindled as the owner of Zacki's BBQ, and as a food stylist for Martha Stewart in the 90's. Returning to NC in 2005, Zacki opened Zacki's Culinary Creations to offer her distinguished private chef services and creative food presentations to the community. The company, under her direction, has served church socials, family reunions, small weddings, and milestone anniversary events. Its clients range from individuals who are too busy to cook to companies who desire creative dining options for business meetings and corporate retreats.
All meals feature fresh local produce, seasonal flowers, vegetables from her own "Secret Garden," or local farmers. Many of her signature recipes and food stylings have been featured in best-selling cookbooks, national food magazines and on network television. Originality and variety are always essential ingredients in Zacki's Culinary Creations.
