We are probably the most affortable and reasonable rates on vrbo.We could ask for more but choose not to.Our prices iclude cleaning fee,taxes and room rate.So when you come in the winter for the price of $108 during the week and $115 on week end there r no secret or other expenses like thes other sites do.Vrbo has recently added a 9% service fee they add on.This is not going to us but something all these sites r doing.We have a $35 pet fee for our guest bringing their 4 foot family members.If you have 2 dog or one it is the same fee.We offer also wireless internet.Please bring your own music system,speaker etc.We do have a cd player to attach to in the room.Our place has ample heat and air conditioning depending on the time of the year.Most guest tell us our place is more beautiful than the pictures we display on our site.........We look forward to helping you if we can and having you stay in a great place.In the summer we raise our rates a little more and in the fall for one month just a little higher......What you get here is a peaceful,homey,loving environment that is close to everything,luxurious,and at a reasonable price.Our facilty is very clean and well taken care off.Hope to see you here Laura and Michael

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!

A nice alternative for your stay in Asheville

  • 4 of 5

The location is outstanding, the host congenial and accommodating, the bed is great and there is a nice, private hot tub. So why not five stars? A number of minor issues preclude that coveted final star. I'd describe them as annoyances, minor inconveniences or simply a matter of personal preference rather than major problems but here they are:

* It would be nice to have a box of kleenex somewhere, some gel or bar of soap for the shower and a mattress cover on that expensive mattress.

* Though it's apparently 'ant season' in Asheville the little buggers that pretty much constantly patrol the bathroom vanity are somewhat unpleasant.

* An electrical review/upgrade might resolve the issue of not being able to operate appliances (hair dryer, etc.) without risking tripping a breaker/fuse.

* Improved ventilation, especially in the winter, would be nice to better (how shall I say it politely?) dispel unpleasant bathroom odors that linger.

We'd stay at the property again although wouldn't recommend doing so in the dead of winter. We happened to pick what was likely the coldest week of the year and it was a challenge to keep things comfortably warm. That said, we're NOT counting off for the cold. A solid, four star recommendation regardless of old man winter!

Owner's Response: I appreciate your candor and enjoyed the time we spent together,I have bought a new cover for the king size mattress and kleenex should of been there.The person who makes up our room failed to put that out.We do have scent spray for the bathroom and provide that.We don't stock soap but provide shampoo and cleaner in the shower.Most people don't want to use someone elses soap.I am so sorry the weather was so cold while visiting asheville but looking at the weather for the rest of the country we got off easy....sort of......

Very Pleasant and Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently visited our daughter's family in Asheville. We are very happy to have discovered Michael's property. The bed is very luxurious and comfortable and I was able to make good use of the hot tub right outside of the apartment area. I relaxed in it twice during our brief stay, once on a 20-degree morning. Very nice!

Michael is a great host and the whole area around our apartment felt like being in a nice resort. We definitely will make this our new Asheville headquarters!

Amazing Asheville Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this little jewel! Upon arrival, our suite was well prepared and so beautiful! It was exactly as pictured, and even more comfortable and welcoming than we expected! The fireplace is an extra little romantic ambiance, as there is a sitting area right across from where you can relax and enjoy a cocktail upon arrival or your favorite glass of wine. Our host Michael was extremely helpful and responsive. I called once because we were late upon arrival and another time I texted because my fiance' chef insisted on cooking breakfast for me both mornings in the kitchen there, and accidentally tripped a breaker. It had everything you would need to prepare a full meal. The atmosphere was artistic, inviting, and eclectic. The king sized bed was extremely comfortable, and the hot tub was very relaxing! This place is very close to all of the art galleries (less than a mile) and only 2 miles from the Biltmore Village. Downtown Asheville 10 min and easy access to Sierra Nevada as well. I will definitely book another reservation here in the spring and I couldn't have been happier with my selection in finding the perfect place to celebrate chef's birthday! Great romantic holiday retreat for 2!!
