About Liviu Marhao

Owned by Eagle Nests Homes, a family investment My name is Liviu Marhao and I am the builder and part owner of the house. In 2006 I took a trip to Mountain Air and our family fell in love with the location. We decided that this is the perfect place to build a retreat for our family. I combined my many years of expertise in building custom homes with advanced technologies with the passion of designing and building this retreat to last for generations. Hundreds of hours were spent in research and 18 months in supervising the project, giving much attention to overall quality, choice of materials, architectural details and the highest level of craftsmanship. This is the place where our family comes together to regroup, relax, spend time away from the hectic life and enjoy nature and each others. We would like you to have the same opportunity, you will not be disappointed!

Liviu Marhao purchased this villa in 2008

Why Liviu Marhao chose Burnsville

Breath taking mountain view, secluded and upscale. No humidity and moderate temperatures in the summer, never above 86F. Fly in and out with your small plane or helicopter. Paved private runway 3000 ft. Down the mountain the town of Bunsville awaits you for shoping and dining. More than dozen streams in close proximity for fly fishing.

What makes this villa unique

Cleanse your lungs with fresh mountain air. Morning mist comes up the valley as you wake up. You will find yourself surrounded by the beauty of nature while enjoying luxurious accommodations. Take a good breakfast and head to the top of the mountain where miles of trails are waiting to be discovered and explored. Rest and quiet down as you stay at the house and let your creativity fly high.

Luxury Living where its a lot cooler than Columbia SC

  • 5 of 5

Had family reunion in the mountains for 4 daughters, 3 husbands and 5 grandchildren. After 5 straight years at the beach, this was by far the easiest and best vacation for me. Everything I did was on the first floor, moving in was a breeze, the accommodations were everything anyone could want. Have stayed in some pretty nice rentals which cost a lot more beachfront is way high), but this home was solidly built.

The owner was just finishing cleaning with his wife, father & son and I enjoyed talking to them while the cleaning was completed. They gave us a nice bottle of wine, chocolates and awesome home made bread.

Did not find the roads a challenge as my 2.7 liter F-150 had more than enough power and I have driven in the mountains before. I can see where some low powered economy cars might have some trouble.

The highlights of the trip were eating gourmet meals together, taking 4 of the kids caving, going to Mount Mitchel, hiking the trails near the rental, going to Asheville to buy chocolate from the Chocolate Fetish, and observing stars on the last night when we had clearing skies.

Next year will be back at the beach for us and in 2 years we plan to be back in the mountains. I certianly will consider rentin

There is plenty of stuff to cook with, but if you are in to cooking a big meal for the clan here are a few suggestions which will make your stay better.

Suggestions:

Bring the following if these are important to you:

- extra towels and hand towels

- dish towels

- your good knives

- microwave bowls and lids

- your good grilling tools

- your special spices

- paper plates, cups, napkins, paper towels and TP.

- anything special you use like cheeze cutter and zester

There is a very well equipped Ingles 10 minutes away and the Owner provided us with a Ingles card, but who wants to spend their valuable vacation time shopping. I always bring this stuff with me so I do not have to go looking for it or do without.

There is a complete set of very comfortable folding chairs in the garage which were great for my wife and I (we have back issues). They sell them at my local Sams Wholesale and I will probably pick up a bunch for sitting on my deck.

I would be glad to stay here again. Livio is a good person and an excellent host. He personally managed the construction of this fine property including the custom made windows which open 2 different ways and the doors. You will see many examples of fine craftsmanship and good design throughout the home

Floridians head to the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this beautiful house! It is absolutely beautiful, so spacious and had everything we needed for a long weekend getaway in the mountains. We went to Ashevillle everyday so it was secluded enough for the beautiful scenery but close enough to downtown fun. The owners were so responsive, hospitable, and incredibly helpful! We can't wait to come back and enjoy those breath-taking views!

So amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends took our annual trip to the mountains and could not have asked for a better house to stay at! It was a short drive into Asheville and most of the time we hung out around the fire on the back deck. The house is beautiful and was able to accommodate six couples very comfortably. The owner of the home was so helpful. He made sure to send us information on events happening locally and left us a welcome basket when we arrived. He was very accommodating the entire time. We would absolutely right this house again!

Perfect extended weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We come to Asheville every year for an extended weekend without kids. Our group of 12 had looked for other houses and hotel ideas with no luck. When we found Mr Marhao's house, we hit the jackpot. The accommodations were exactly what we needed. 6 great bedrooms with comfortable beds and all the bathrooms and showers were great for each couple to enjoy. The grocery store was only a short drive and with such a nice kitchen in the house, we cooked at the house most of the time. Mr Marhao was always excellent when responding to our questions regarding the house. We will be back again next year to enjoy another short getaway. See y'all then!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home. We had a very large party and from the beginning to the end of the process the owner could not have been more helpful and accomodating. this was our first rental on VRBO and we were a little nervous, but the owner did everything he said he would and then some! About the home itself...amazing!, like i said, we had a large party(8 adults and 7 children)it easily accomodated us all. The views are stunning, and the neighborhood that it is in is incredible. They have playgrounds and hiking trails for the kids, it was a never ending adventure. It was also very easy to get to, and a beautiful drive. My family and i would definatley stay here again.
