Perfect location, wonderful hosts, clean and eclectic apartment

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Kathy's home over memorial day weekend and had a fantastic time. Check in and check out were extremely easy, and we had chocolate AND wine waiting for us when we got there. The apartment was clean and had absolutely everything we needed for a long weekend. The air-conditioning unit was on and controlled by us, which I really appreciate (I hate being hot). The apartment has several big windows that overlook a shared backyard, but you can close the curtains to make the space private. The jacuzzi tub, oversized shower, and heated tiles were an awesome plus. There are also several DVDs available to watch on the big-screen TV and we definitely watched some after long days out on the town/at breweries. This is the perfect place to stay for a romantic get-away-- especially for those of us that have dogs! Kathy and Patrick are lovely people and were very available when we needed them to be while also completely respecting our privacy. Thank you!!

There was no "luxury" attached to this suite!

  • 1 of 5

We have used VRBO on many occasions and have never been disappointed. This rental was dirty, musty and so unappealing that we did not stay. We forfeited our total payment because of the condition that we saw upon arrival. The quaint outdoor space was filthy with chair pads with mold. The grass was not mowed, and the outdoor table had an inch of dirt and grime on top. Inside the air conditioner was very loud and duct taped to the wall and window. It appeared to us that this homeowner had not prepared for our stay.

Owner's Response: This guest was leaving the property before they had even been inside. Their reasoning was that there was pollen on the outdoor table (certainly not an inch of dirt or mold), and that the grass had not been mowed. We had been having monsoon like rains here in Asheville over the past several weeks, and the grass was due to be mowed the following day. This reviewer then began demanding a full refund under threat of leaving us a bad review. Our feeling is that this guest wanted their money back for reasons that did not have to do with the condition of our rental. Our rental was in the same condition when this reviewer arrived that has earned us numerous five star reviews this spring, and over the past six years we have been renting this space. They were unwilling to allow us to remedy or address their concerns.

Perfect for our Needs

  • 4 of 5

We were in Asheville for a conference and this pet-friendly location was perfect. It was close to downtown and yet it felt like being in the country. Many good "chain" restaurants nearby that offer "Take-Out," which was helpful for decent meals on the fly. The king size bed was comfortable. The heated floor was cozy. A nice little home away from home.

Quiet, comfortable space in the mountains.

Clean, very comfortable bed, and very peaceful stay in Asheville. The dogs had a great big fenced in area and we had such peaceful sleep. Would recommend! Owners are good people!

A perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay for our 6-night getaway to Asheville. The bed was super comfy and the accommodations couldn't have been nicer! We would stay there again in a heartbeat! It's close to everything and very quiet and private.

You will love the the small town feel of Asheville with all the amenities of a larger city. It has been called the 'Paris of the South.' We are within 1 mile of downtown with nationally raved about eateries and great music at the Orange Peel and many other venues. We are home to the Moog Fest, Bele Chere, and many other great music and arts festivals. The River Arts district is only a couple of miles away as well with over 50 professional artists working in their studios. The Blue Ridge Parkway has access to numerous hiking trails and the Pisagh National Forest is just a few miles away as well.
