Overview

Overview

Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

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!

About Owner/Manager

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

Why Owner/Manager chose Asheville

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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

"When we go back to Asheville I won't waste any time finding another place; I'm calling Valorie. Her place was spacious, neat, clean, convenient, and comfortable. Valorie was extremely nice and very accommodating. Thank you for helping to make our first visit to Asheville so enjoyable!"

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful ,cozy studio apartment. Stayed a week and don't know why anyone would want to stay at a hotel. Bed is very comfortable. Valorie was available when we had a question. Pictures of apartment are spot on. Didn't even mind the steep front steps. Easy walk to downtown

Great alternative to a hotel! We stayed one night in this apartment. Amazing decor, updated older home, large living space. We easily walked to downtown. Valorie was great in keeping us in the loop as far as check-in, weather, etc. Thanks for a great stay!

Highly Recommend

  • 4 of 5
We stayed two nights and we would highly recommend the location for staying close to downtown. Valarie was wonderful and provided great coffee. Very accurate description, as the stairs are steep. Beds very comfortable and the front porch was lovely to sit on after a long day of travel and sight seeing. Even the neighbors cat came by to welcome us to Ashville.

Comfortable, Convenient and Cozy

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful, tastefully decorated and comfortable apartment. We were able to walk into Asheville every day to enjoy the sights, shopping and restaurants. The kitchen was stocked with coffee, tea and sugar with organic half and half in the fridge. There is a black and white cat who likes to visit on the porch with whom we made friends! The bed is very comfortable, wi-fi fast and accessible. Although close to the city and off a busy street, we found the apartment very quite. We would definitely come back!

Cozy Asheville Stay

  • 5 of 5
My sister, friend, and I stayed at this lovely apartment for a weekend away, and we would definitely go back! It was within an easy walking distance to downtown Asheville (unless you're pregnant and walking up a few hills is difficult for you.... like me). It was also very clean and cozy, and all of the essentials were provided (soap, body wash, paper towels, toilet paper, towels, bedding, coffee, coffee maker, mini-fridge, etc.). There is no DVD player available, but we brought ours with us and had no trouble setting it up. I love this cute little Asheville retreat, and I will definitely return! Warning, there is a VERY steep set of steps leading up to the apartment, so if you have difficulty walking and/or climbing steps, this is not the place for you.
