BEAUTIFUL DOWNTOWN APARTMENT: SLEEK, MODERN, IMMACULATE!!!

Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

My historic home was built 100 years ago and is fully and beautifully renovated. It's located just 1/2 mile from the heart of downtown Asheville.

The house is uniquely situated: neighboring houses are quite a good distance away and there are lots of trees and greenery outside, so the setting is very natural, but still just a short walk to downtown.

THE SPACE

You'll be renting the first floor of the home, a 900 square foot apartment. I live upstairs in a separate unit, and I use a different entrance, so you'll have total privacy. (The spiral stairway in the photos has been closed off to separate your space from mine).

Main living area:

-800 square feet with an open, urban loft feel

-sleek, uncluttered, minimalist decor

-hardwood floors

-queen size Tempur Pedic bed with very nice linens

-full size futon for extra bed or to be used as couch

-lots of sunlight, trees and greenery all around

- expanded cable TV

Kitchenette amenities:

-microwave, toaster oven, small fridge

-coffee maker, electric kettle

-organic coffee and cream porvided

-sink, counter top, small dining table

-all utensils, ice bucket which I fill upon request

Bathroom:

-full bath, clean, updated

-plenty of nice towels provided

-good water pressure

- all water from sinks and shower is on a house filtration system: great for drinking, easy on you skin when bathing

-blow dryer provided

Other Amenities:

-large storage closet for your belongings

-wireless internet

-extremely quiet, efficient ductless central AC/heat

-optional cozy gas log stove for winter

OUTSIDE:

-private, sunny covered porch

-street parking always readily available; no meters or other restrictions

-an easy 1/2 mile walk to the heart of downtown

-2 minute walk to the city's nicest tailgate farmers' market (Saturday mornings, April-November)

-Private entrance ** PLEASE NOTE: THE STAIRCASE FROM THE STREET UP TO THE APARTMENT ENTRANCE IS STEEP AND LONG SO PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU HAVE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS**

My main living quarters are not directly over the apartment, so you will not be disturbed by my presence. This house is very well built with thick walls and floors. (No creaking floors or loud footsteps overhead like in some downstairs units!).

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

My downtown neighborhood has a strong sense of history and community. Very close to my house you will find historic churches, a community center, a park and an edible garden. My neighbors are a diverse mix of artists, young families and working class people. Everyone is very friendly. While not affluent, this area of town is eclectic, lively and safe!!

All in all, this is the perfect spot for those who want to experience downtown Asheville within walking distance yet have serene, private accommodations to come home to.

This apartment is a special place and my guests are consistently thrilled with it.

I look forward to hosting you soon!

I was born and raised in North Carolina and have lived in Asheville for nearly 20 years. After graduating from The Colorado College, I moved here to take a job in outdoor education, and I was so happy here that I stayed. I love the natural beauty of the mountains combined with the eclectic downtown scene. My career for the past 15 years has been in music, as a singer songwriter. I know a lot about what's going on musically in Asheville, so fee free to ask for suggestions. I have toured and performed all over the country, and I know what it's like to be a guest in someone's home. My style as a host is to be completely available if you need anything, but otherwise let you have total privacy.

I have really been enjoying managing this property and renting to short term guests, in fact it has become a second job for me. The apartment does not sit unattended; I am very conscientious about keeping it extremely clean and in good repair.

I truly care about your experience here. The satisfaction of my guests makes me happy too!!

Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2009

I bought this special, historic home in the heart of Asheville because I had been living out in the country for a long time and I really wanted to be more connected to community, friends, and the vibrant downtown scene. I have a very clear memory of looking through the window and seeing the downstairs space when I was house hunting. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to buy it! I am very happy here.

This home was newly renovated when I purchased it- all I had to do was move in! It feels really welcoming and serene. This house is my sanctuary. It has a special combination of close proximity to downtown (views included) and a quiet, natural setting in the trees. Extra amenities include the extremely comfortable Tempur Pedic queen size bed, luxury linens, whole-house water filter (drinking and bathing water are filtered), expanded cable TV, quiet, efficient ductless central air, and much more

Having rented many places while on vacation, I can honestly say that this was the best! The apartment was beautiful, very clean, and in a great location. The host was very friendly and the communication prior to our arrival was the best. She recommended a few places to eat that where perfect. If you are looking to a have a perfect getaway in Asheville, then this is the place you want to stay! My wife and I look forward to staying again.

CONVENIENT AND COMFORTABLE.

  • 5 of 5
We loved the apartment. It was perfect for my husband and me. It is conveniently located to everything we wanted to do and we were able to walk to most of the places we wanted to see. It was quiet and comfortable and felt more like home than a hotel which led to much better sleep. The porch was perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. I would recommend the apartment to friends and we are looking forward to returning very soon.

FABULOUS AND FUN!

  • 5 of 5
The owner met me as I arrived and was very gracious about my request for arrival time. The space itself is exceptionally clean, well-maintained, and uncluttered. The apartment is a nice, easy walk to all that downtown has to offer. We enjoyed ourselves immensely on this birthday weekend for two old friends. We also greatly enjoyed the sitting porch where we spent time catching up over glasses of wine and local beers. I was very happy with everything and didn't want for anything. The owner is an awesome communicator; she's friendly, quick, and flexible. I would recommend this property to friends and family -- the description is highly accurate. The owner also gave us some great suggestions for area restaurants/bars to visit and provided us with a great deal of information. We ate at Curate (amazing tapas), Table (farm-to-table, creative food on College), Strada (roof-top bar and Italian restaurant on Broadway), Battery Park Book Exchange (wine bar in Grove Arcade), and Chai Pani (Indian street food on Battery Park). We also walked around the River Arts District; finally, we're thrift store-aholics, so we enjoyed ourselves perusing many of the awesome thrift stores in the area, notably Goodwill on Patton and the Habitat for Humanity Restore near Biltmore Village. We simply had a blast the two days we were there, and I would certainly rent this space again for its proximity to all the fun in the downtown area and for its charm and cleanliness.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Lovely apartment with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Asheville. Easy walk to downtown. Great kitchenette. Owner provided ground organic French Roast coffee and lots of tourist information. She also gave us a list of the hot new dining and entertainment venues. Great porch to relax and have coffee in the morning and wine in the evening.

AS ADVERTISED, READY FOR TO GO BACK

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here on a weekend away from the kids. The place was better than advertised and sure as heck beat staying in a hotel. The owner was easy to communicate with during our stay and very hospitable. There was not much she had not thought of and she stayed out of our way the whole weekend. The place was spotless first and foremost. I thought it cool the owner provided coffee you could turn on each morning. The towels and sheets were all provide and the bed was a Tempurpedic and slept great. It was also great to wake up and feel the coolness of the place as it is in the bottom level of the house. The location was just a short walk down the hill from Pack square, and all the restaruants, shops and breweries up on Biltmore Ave. We walked everywhere with ease which is what we like. The owner also emailed us suggestions on where to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and I recommend them to whoever stays here. She knows Asheville.
I must say I was a little concerned at first about the location but it is a very safe neighborhood with neighbors out in their yard with their kids in the mornings. We basically got to live in Asheville for a weekend and you can't get that at a hotel The only thing I would say is if you have any issue going up and down steps then I would not suggest this place to you
