BILTMORE ESTATES- APPROX. 1 MILE....ASHEVILLE APPROX. 3 MILES

Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Looking for a conveniently located property in the Asheville area? Your search is over. My quaint apartment is located just minutes from Biltmore Estate, Biltmore Village, and downtown Asheville. The completely renovated downstairs apartment is located in a circa 1925 house at the end of a very short and quiet street with lots of trees. It's like being in the country with all of the advantages and conveniences of being in the middle of a city. I live upstairs and am available to provide information and directions but your privacy remains important and you will not be disturbed. There's a fully equipped kitchen with lots of amenities, Free Wi-Fi service, Cable TV and a DVD player. There are 2 private entrances. Enter the living room from a cozy little patio with a bistro table and two chairs. The other doorway exits from the bedroom to a very private porch that overlooks a large back yard which hosts a variety of trees, flowers and birds. Perfect for enjoying a cool drink or a glass of wine.

Biltmore Estates Tickets: As an official Biltmore Estate Ticket Distributor and Partner I Offer Tickets and the second day is FREE! They're good for 2 consecutive days at no extra charge. No standing in long lines. I'll have them waiting for you when you arrive.

I am Janis and for many years, prior to my husband’s passing, it was our goal to own and operate a guest cottage in beautiful Asheville, NC. I am fulfilling this dream as he would have wanted. My love of nature and the beauty to be found in Asheville is a constant source of discovery for me and as my eyes are opened to the beauty that surrounds the cottage and apartment, it excites me to be able to offer visitors first hand information on the endless sites in store for them. I am here to make your trip a memorable one and to offer everything I can to help you achieve that. “Your Complete Satisfaction is my #1 Goal!” I've lived in 13 cities including Atlanta and Savannah, GA, Malibu, Marina del Rey, North Hollywood, CA and Orlando, FL for 18 years. Asheville is my favorite!!!

Janis Kaye purchased this apartment in 1983

I actually didn’t choose Asheville but rather married into it so to speak. My husband owned this home and lived in it for a short time off and on. When we married we moved to Orlando, FL and the house remained unoccupied except for an occasional renter. In 2000 we decided to completely restore the home and after renting it for a few years we decided to sell our home in Orlando and relocate full time to the property in Asheville, a move we never regretted.

It's the last house on a very short dead end street with very few neighbors so no busy road. It has the country feel but is within the city limits and close to almost everything. Biltmore Village and The Biltmore Estates, Downtown Asheville, Antiquing, Great Restaurants, Cafe's, Bistros', Unique little shops, The Blue Ridge Parkway and more are about 3 to 8 minutes away.

What a great place you have. We really enjoyed sitting on the back porch and having a glass of wine. Truly the best VRBO experience we've ever had. You are a great hostess and hopefully a new friend. We will be back soon. Hope to see you in October. Thanks for very quick return of the deposit

Dear Janis,

You have thought of everything! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely property and home and for your fine southern hospitality. We truly appreciate your friendly suggestions regarding hikes, waterfalls and helping us with directions as well! This helped us plan our days and make the most of our time in Asheville. This trip has been a great retreat from our busy lives in Ohio and we hope to be able to return sometime in the future. Thanks for everything and for making us feel welcomed and at home while on vacation. Your property is a gem and you are a most gracious host. Thanks too for the quick return of our deposit and for your kind follow-up email. Thanks for sharing your kindness and your home and until we meet again God Bless Ya!

Private, comfortable and convenient location

  • 4 of 5
Despite the cold and rainy weather we had a fabulous trip. The waterfall
hikes were beautiful and the meals from each restaurant you recommended were memorable. The location is perfect..every time/day we left for an adventure the GPS said 8 minutes (LOL). Your directions were always right on and the direction pages your prepared were helpful.
The care and joy you put into everything you do creates a homey and pampered environment. You are justifiably proud of all your hard work on this place.lucky for us that we found you!
We look forward to returning to Asheville and enjoying your laughter and
stories on the back porch. (with all the garden art)

Girlfriend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had. A great place for girlfriends to meet up for a 'girls getaway'. It started with Janis letting me check in a little early, I had the longest distance to travel, I was thrilled with her flexibility. Janis was very helpful with every question we had; where to eat, what to do, where to travel, and what to do along the way. Even though we stayed in the apartment below we felt like we were in a very private area. The apartment had everything we needed and the bed is super comfortable. I was sad to leave and hope to stay at Janis' Cottages again. Within a couple of days my security deposit arrived in the mail...much appreciated!!

I would like to thank Janis for her hospitality, the delicious fruit smoothie, the Sunday morning sticky bun and chocolate croissant, and my favorite... the night around the fire. We had a great time!! Hope to stay in touch, Thank you.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience renting through VRBO and I could not have been any more pleased.
The unit itself is completely renovated, clean, well-furnished and in overall outstanding condition. The apartment is only one bedroom but it has a good-sized (full) kitchen, bathroom and access to a laundry room and can easily accommodate 2-3 people. Everything was spotless and it really felt like home. Wireless internet is provided. All of appliances and furniture were in near-brand new condition.
I was concerned about privacy, but the rental is at the end of a residential street and has two private entrances and its own secluded (and covered) patio. The neighborhood is single family residences and was quiet and well-maintained. Janis also rents the home next door, so you feel like you have your own space. The yard and gardens are beautifully maintained and you can spend hours on the porch bird watching or just admiring the amazing work Janis has put into her landscaping.
The location is perfect if you are visiting the Biltmore, downtown Asheville or the greater Asheville area. The entrance to the Biltmore estate and the Biltmore Village are less than a 5 minute drive from the rental, downtown is less than 10 minutes away and highway access to sites (Hendersonville, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc.) in the surrounding area is easy.
Janis was a great host and gave us great tips on sites to see in the area, great restaurants and breweries, shopping as well as tips for our visit to the Biltmore. She provided a packet she prepared with information on things to do in the area with directions as well as several binders of information on restaurants and other local attractions. She also sells tickets to the Biltmore at a great discount. We purchased our tickets from her and they were waiting for us on our arrival.
Janis was very easy to work with. She took our reservation on very short notice (< 1 week) and had the security deposit ready to go even before we left. She even loaned us raincoats and a cooler during our stay! I would rent again in a heartbeat and would recommend this rental to anyone I know visiting Asheville.
