2 Bed/ 1 Bath with Hot Tub and Kitchen. City of Asheville Permit 2018 15-16159

Read our reviews! Located smack dab in the middle of the bustling Haywood Road corridor on a quite side street. Our location is unbeatable in Asheville! Park the car in the private driveway and forget about it! Everything you could possibly want is a short walk away. Head to the nearest brewery (a few hundred feet away!) for a few cold ones, and then come back and have a relaxing soak in your own backyard hot tub. The Hideaway is registered and inspected by the City of Asheville as a LEGAL short term rental. Completely private, 2 bedroom apartment located on the lower level of a duplex. Guests have access to a fenced yard with hot tub, large patio, fire pit, and paved driveway with offstreet parking for up to three cars. The apartment has outdoor appeal but is only a short walk from virtually every downtown convenience imaginable. The closest bars and restaurants are a few hundred feet away!

For added comfort, the Hideaway is equipped with a Mitsubiti Duel Split heating and cooling system with two separate zone controls. This allows for independent temperature control in different parts of the apartment.

We also provide, at no additional charge, area maps, menus, calendars and magazines, cooler, yoga mat. Local roasted coffee, cream and sugar. Hot tea. White noise machines in bedrooms. Board games, puzzles and DVD movies. The Hideaway is located within ONE MILE of... bars (x20 plus), restaurants (x25 plus), breweries (x4), stationary shop, print shop, laundromat, nail salon, hair salon, baby store, consignment shop, vintage clothing store, tienda, pizzeria, bike shop, tattoo salons (x3), acupuncture, massage school, yoga studio, fitness center, grocer, market, bakeries(x3), dog park, cafe, coffee roaster, music venues, banks, art studios, mechanic, pawn shop, hardware store...You name it!

About Joe Allawos

My family moved into town a couple years back to improve our daughter's option for school and we have found so much cool stuff around us! From tailgate markets to award winning breweries, sake and hard cider houses, this area is a gourmet's delight!

Joe Allawos purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Joe Allawos chose West Asheville

Close to everything, with a hot tub and fire pit in a fenced yard, comfortable beds and a fully stocked kitchen. Off road parking for three cars! It's convenient, comfortable and affordable. Please check the calendar before sending us a request to make sure the dates are available. Or use the convenient Instant Book option. Sorry, no pets!

What makes this apartment unique

Enjoy the mountain trails and then unwind in comfort and style. We are walking distance to award winning restaurants!! Explore the local breweries without your car! It is Beer City USA after all! Sorry, no exceptions. People often ask: "How far to downtown?" Well, you ARE downtown! West Asheville has everything you could possibly want all within a short walk. The closest bars and restaurants are within 200 yards of the Hideaway so you won't have to go far. And when you return, relax in the hot tub or enjoy WiFi on the patio. We live on the premises and are here to help but only if you need us. Otherwise, you likely will not even know we are here.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The place was roomier than in the photos, very clean and comfortable! We loved the hot tub and the proximity to restaurants. Joe was super helpful when we a)locked ourselves out and b) pushed the wrong setting on the hot tub. Would definitely stay again!

awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

the space was very clean and all the small details that the owner had in place were awesome. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Asheville. Walking distance to all the great West Asheville spots. Host made it clear that he was available 24/7 if we needed him. Responded to texts immediately. If we could give it more than 5 stars we would! Thanks again Joseph for a great weekend!
