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.

About Janis Kaye

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

Why Janis Kaye chose Asheville

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Janis, We looked forward to staying at this apartment from the moment we saw it on-line. I had actually said a prayer that the Lord would help us find a special place to spend our 40th anniversary.. and in that instant your site came up on the computer. When I showed it to my husband we both were excited and kept checking out the site in the weeks we were preparing for our trip. Then when we arrived it was awesome to have you here and make us feel so welcome. And we were blessed with you saving us so much time by having all the directions for places to go and see. The location of your property is perfect for doing so many things in and around Asheville. We barely touched the surface of things to do…there is so much more we want to do and see if we get the opportunity to come back. God truly answered our prayers with the perfect sanctuary for us. Thanks for the very nice card, my special Blue Belle Vanilla ice cream and Marks' treat (too) for our anniversary. We have felt so at peace here and have enjoyed the times we got to visit with you. You truly are one of God's gifts to the world. We also appreciate the hard work you do to make this place such a special haven and the cleanliness of the unit. We enjoyed the porch & the beautiful flowers and decorations in the yard every morning. We will never forget this place and YOU and we hope we'll get to come back. We enjoyed the renovation history of this place and the tour of the cottage. Also our smoothies!! God bless you and strengthen you each day! In Christian Love, Mark and Debbie

anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5
Janis, My husband and I really enjoyed our time in your litl place. It was cozy and clean, everything we needed, at a great price!! We especially enjoyed sitting on your private back porch drinking our morning coffee, planning our day, while looking at your whimsical yard art & watching the hummingbirds feed and other birds chirp and take turns on your seed-feeder. Your place is so very convenient to everything, close to Biltmore, which we went to on Sunday(Sunday's cheaper btw), and very close to town too.
After everyday of walking & doing all those tourisity things, we went by redbox to get a DVD, went back to enjoy..and kick our feet up while drinking the wine you so nicely left us. Thank again for sharing your place with us.
Terry & Bill

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!
