Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the stay. It was nice to have such a large space as we spent a lot of time indoors (rain-filled weekend)! Birdsong and rooster and "donkey song" woke us each morning. It was lovely.

It did the job

  • 3 of 5
Inside was gorgeous and well-taken care of; it was an easy drive to Asheville.

I didn't learn until it was too late (get the "rules" before signing the contract) to get another property that the fenced-in yard use must be coordinated with the caretaker before use and that I had to walk the dogs to the yard area. And dogs are not allowed on the furniture. The porch and immediate gardens were neglected, filled with weeds and dead plants. The washer and dryer are outside and cannot be used before 9 am and after 9 pm.

But, it was very interesting to see the fruit trees/vines/bushes; these were surprisingly ornamental and very well-cared for. This place has lots of potential; just needs better outside maintenance and the rules need to be announced before signing.

Owner's Response: I wish you had contacted me if you wanted to cancel your booking when you read the "rules". It is never too late to respond to the needs of our guests. And all the information that you state that you didn't know was in the rental agreement that you signed before you booked. I'm sorry if you didn't read it before signing it. We go out of our way to make our guests happy and comfortable.

Comfortable stay.

  • 3 of 5
Was ok but was disappointed with cleanliness - especially in kitchen. Once I cleaned and felt more comfortable, I enjoyed being close to my family.

Owner's Response: As you will notice in my other reviews, our property is very clean and well maintained. There was a very quick turnover for this rental and the cleaners missed cleaning the coffee pot. We apologized and the renter said all was well.

Spacious Apartment

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is situated in a convenient location to many of Asheville's local attractions. We actually came down to visit with my youngest daughter & this place afforded us the opportunity, since we had to travel with our small dogs. To our surprise, it was nicely maintained considering they take dogs. We were close to restaurants, the mall, Biltmore and the Basilica was within minutes for Sunday service. We enjoyed our stay & would recommend this property.

Labor Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5
Very convenient location and great sized space for 2 adults and a big 'ol floppy boy dog. Appreciated that we could get to downtown in less than 10 minutes and were close to some of the fun oddities of West Asheville. Also liked that the location has an "out in the country" feel with the help of roosters and the local donkeys - the morning glories were lovely as well. The driveway was a little treacherous and may not be for the faint of heart so bring your big girl breeches for parking. Also a little perturbed by some of the old food folks had left in the refrigerator/freezer, but I have faith that it will be cleaned up for the next tenants. Overall, a nice place to stay at a very reasonable price. Marilyn was a very accommodating host.

Perfect location for fun!

  • 4 of 5
Great little apt for a couple or small family, we even had my inlaws stay with us for some of our stay and they were quite comfortable on the queen size sleeper sofa. Kitchen was a good size in which to prepare meals, and there was even some food in the pantry and fridge to get us started. The yard isn't very big, but large enough to throw the ball for my dog so it worked. The parking in the front of the apt is a little dangerous for pulling out of (located on a blind curve) but there was enough room for us to park in the upper area, which was a bit safer to pull out of. The location was great, close to everything especially West Asheville and Haywood street. The landscaping and flowers make the home very lovely and enjoyable, especially when relaxing on the front porch watching the rain. The property overall is clean and well maintained and the property managers provided excellent customer service. We definitely recommend this property to others for their stay. Very close to all the wonderful attractions Asheville has to offer. We were very sad to leave! Can't wait to return again!
