Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Apex, North Carolina - Updated 2023


You don’t have to relocate to Apex yet, to experience how it is like to reside in Money magazine’s number one vote in the Best Places to Live in America in 2015. You can visit this suburb or Raleigh anytime and see the historic downtown district, as well as its urban parks. These areas are particular points of interest because they showcase the railroad heritage. In the 19th century, Apex started as a small settlement known as “Log Pond Village” that grew around a railroad station, which eventually became a trading post. The moniker, “Apex Station” stuck because the town was indeed the highest point on the railroad line running between Chatham County (Georgia) and Richmond (Virginia). Do not wait too long to plan your visit and start checking out our top Airbnb vacation rentals in Apex, North Carolina.

1. Bright and roomy house near historic district (from USD 135)

Three spacious bedrooms, a well-appointed kitchen, and living areas sufficient for eight guests are on offer through Airbnb. You’re secure in a neighborhood that is quaint and quiet. Meanwhile, the house is as bright within as it looks like from the outside. The hosts do not reside on-site, but they make sure the home they used to live in is well maintained and has all the amenities you need. There’s plenty of room for everyone, and if you need to work from this home away from home, there is a dedicated desk and chair for remote work.
