About Shay Amber Bollt

My husband and I have a great love of historic architecture, antiques and art. We have been restoring old homes in Asheville since 2000. In 2013, we decided to combine our passions by creating these inspired spaces for guests to stay while they explore all the vibrant culture and beautiful mountains found in and around Asheville. The result is our newly renovated apartment building.

Beautiful, clean suite in a nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best bnb experience ever. The place is clean and decorated with taste, fully equipped and located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. There are no mosquitoes or insects to be found (very important to us).

All of these qualities let us feel at home right away, and throughout the whole stay.

Shay and David were very helpful and recommended nice restaurants and activities to do in the area. They were reactive to answer our questions and made sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely book again!

Simplicity, convenience, & value.

  • 5 of 5

We rented The Starling in late March, ‘18. After searching for hours for just the right location, with a reasonable price we settled on The Starling. We were unfamiliar with Asheville, and weren’t sure where to stay, but this location was very close to everything. The apartment is within a 3-5 minute drive to very good grocery stores and restaurants, 5 minutes to Downtown Asheville, 10-15 minutes to the Biltmore Estate, and within a half hour or so to some of the most scenic locations along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The apartment is 4 units, with on street parking. It was easy to get close to the front door for loading and unloading. After looking at the street view on Google maps, it appears the owners have done work to the entry area by replacing older unlevel brick, with new sidewalks.

When you walk into the apartment, it’s as if you’re transported back in time when you see the stucco exterior, arched entryways, wood floors and hinged, swinging windows. It’s a reminder of simplicity in life. We loved sleeping with the windows open and having a gentle breeze. We were especially surprised of just how quiet it was when we awoke Sunday morning.

The location made it easy to drop in for a quick rest and regrouping throughout the day, and it was always a welcome site when looking to unwind at the end of the evening.

This apartment has all the basic necessities, the location was very convenient, and the cost was reasonable. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Comfortable and roomy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Starling apartment for 6 nights and really enjoyed it. Super comfortable bed, close to downtown, lovely decor, very quiet neighborhood, and pleanty of space. My only complaint is that they did not supply sufficient paper products. No tissues, no napkins, and not nearly enough toilet paper or paper towels for 6 days..had to run out and buy some. I would not have expected to have to bring those items. Other than that, it was wonderful.

Finally ... on my 4th time coming to Asheville.

  • 5 of 5

This was a good place. I've gotten fed up with VRBO sometimes especially coming to Asheville but I was happy staying here. It was very clean and nice. I was comfortable at night and plenty warm on some bitter cold days. Owners are helpful and really nice. Price seems good and it's probably worth more compared to some others I've stayed in. Highly recommended.
