Overview

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

NEWLY RENOVATED, September 2014!

With a fresh coat of paint on the main floor, new furnishings and new decor, this unit is much improved after a steady stream of visitors over the past year. Improvements will continue throughout the fall months, and we want it to look brand new by Thanksgiving!

This side-by-side Asheville duplex has long been a favorite of mine. Before I bought it, I used to drive by and just look at it. I was attracted by its location, its sturdy, green-built construction, its spacious and sunny layout and its roomy, clean design. It is a fairly new building, and we converted it to a vacation rental in the summer of 2013.

The location is surprisingly quiet, and looking at a map you might expect a lot of highway noise. But a high embankment muffles the sound, so the area is very peaceful. It is a little enclave with no direct connection to other neighborhoods, and there is very little traffic. It is an easy walk to the Visitor's Center and downtown, but the scenery along the service road is not especially appealing. So most guests make the 30 second drive to the Visitor's Center, and walk or ride from there. To get downtown plan on a two to five minute drive.

The building is a side-by-side duplex. Both sides have an identical three-level floor plan, but they are different because on side A, the caretaker, Claire, lives on the lower level. On side B, a huge tiled bedroom, a full bath, and laundry facilities are available to you. On both sides the upper level features two carpeted bedrooms with a bathroom in between. The beds are brand new and are some of the most comfortable you will ever experience. Our guests LOVE them and we have put the same brand in most of our other rentals.

The main level is where you enter. Here you will find the living room, the kitchen, a half bath, a dining nook and a back deck. Floors are hardwood and tile. There is a flat screen TV mounted on the living room wall between the bookshelves. On side A you will find a sleeper sofa that opens up to a full size bed. The open floor plan allows you to enjoy your family and friends while you cook. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans and utensils.

Our caretaker, Claire, is there to help you with any questions or concerns. She lives downstairs in side A and is happy to help if you need anything.

If you have a large group you can rent both sides. You can sleep up to 12 if two people use the sleeper sofa on side A.

Parking in the front is a little tight but two cars can fit if you park at an angle. The parking area can get muddy but we plan to expand it a bit and lay some stone. If you're staying on side B you can drive around to the back but we recommend you don't take a vehicle with low clearance back there because the gravel road has some uneven spots.

Please be aware that the neighborhood has residents of various income levels and is close to downtown. Occasionally a guest has mentioned this so please take it into consideration. The area is quite safe and we have always gotten along with the neighbors. We want our guests to have a good experience and to be happy, so please feel free to call or email us if you have any questions!

We specialize in property management services for short term rentals. We can also help you get started in vacation rentals so please feel free to contact us. Visit our web site at PeteKey dot com for more information.

If you are looking to make Asheville your home, this is a perfect home base for house hunting. We are a good resource if that's your plan, as we know the area and the market. So please let us know and we will help you any way we can.

Thanks and enjoy your stay in Asheville!

Reviewer Comments:

My partner and I wanted to visit Asheville and experience downtown without having to drive everywhere. The location was perfect - a quick 15 minute walk to downtown! The walk/view wasn't "picturesque" (lots of construction nearby and right next to the highway). However, the rental was clean, the house was nice, the location was quiet, and the property managers were very considerate (called to make sure we got into the rental and that everything was satisfactory). I would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend if you plan to spend a lot of time in downtown Asheville!

Reviewer Comments:

This condo was great--the location was perfect, right next to downtown Avl and the interstates, which is good if you want to travel around like we did. The place was in great condition and was impeccably clean. Really pretty street but construction behind the property that could wake you up if you aren't a heavy sleeper. Didn't bother us, though.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented both sides of the duplex, which worked perfectly for our group of 10 - everyone had their own room and there were plenty of bathrooms. We took uber into town a lot and since it's so close it was only $5-6 ride for a car of 4 people.

Girls Weekend

  • 4 of 5

This was a girl's weekend trip to see The Biltmore Estate and spend time together. There was 5 of us. We had a blast. We liked the house very much. Dusty in a few places but overall we were very pleased. Bathrooms clean, beds were comfortable, clean floors, large bedrooms. Quiet neighborhood and very close to downtown. We enjoyed having everyone under one roof and our own kitchen. We sat out on the deck. We are planning to stay in this house again!

Braved the cold temps in Feb to stay in Asheville- location was great - convenient to downtown, short walk and near the bus line. The rental was spacious, clean and comfortable. Will definitely try to rent again on next visit.
