Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I came into Asheville and stayed at this wonderfully secluded place close to everything. Our host was super kind. The hot tub was excellent! The bed is super comfortable! Our host stayed out of our way and we enjoyed everything Asheville had to offer. The Hole and Sunny Point Cafe are musts while there. Wonderful town and I must say this place is way better than any hotel. Be open minded and enjoy. Thank you Michael for opening up your doors to us! We will be staying here again In March of 2017 for the Biltmore Marathon again I promise you!

Amazing property for an amazing price.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this amazing VRBO for our 2 yr anniversary. It is a maximum 10 min drive from anything you could ever want to do in Asheville and Michael was always super responsive and helpful during our entire stay. The hot tub is awesome, the bed super comfy, and the hosts went above and beyond with amenities such as shower supplies, coffee, creamer, etc. I would highly recommend to anyone having a weekend getaway in Asheville.

Beautiful little retreat, excellent to relax and enjoy peace. Clean and with everything you need.

Michael is very nice and ready to help.

We enjoyed the hot tub and the outdoor space. There is a park at walking distance and the River Arts District is fun with excellent restaurants.

Great vacation!

Funkytown

  • 2 of 5

Based on the photos, I was expecting a lot more, but settled for the warped and swaying floors, the funky smells and the ants. It would have been nice to have some shades on the windows, but that’s just me.

The owner seemed nice enough.and the property.had everything it said it would, but it was all a bit funky.

It is in a great location though and easy to get to places.

Owner's Response: We have been doing this for 4 years and you never know,period.These people arrived and they loved the lay out and what the place looks like.Our place is hardly funky.......I was home and I saw them getting in a car early.I asked if there was anything wrong.She stated she saw some ants.Iwent down there after they left and our place was trashed by these particular guest,There was food left ali over the floor so I am not surprised by there being ants.We have neighbors in the distance but nobody close and you can't see in to our place.We have great reviews and it is rated high in the metric ratings......It is exactly like the pictures and personally I wouldn't go by this review to base a point of view......Perhaps not everyone see the elegance and classy vrbo we offer....

Peaceful, Intimate Space

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The property had a unique, interesting layout in which the living space was split between indoors and outdoors. The neighborhood was quiet, the indoor living space was cozy, and our 2 little dogs enjoyed the deck and patio areas. Though the property seemed "off the beaten path," it was still conveniently located close to area attractions (Biltmore Estate, downtown, nice park across the road, etc.). Michael was hospitable and very helpful. Thanks for the stay!
