About Melanie Curlee

I grew up in southern Iowa in the wonderful little (5,000 pop.) town of Chariton. Moved to Santa Barbara, Calif where I worked as a travel agent/event planner. After getting married, we moved to Atlanta and had children, then we moved back to Iowa where I finished college and taught ESL (English as a Second Language). I moved to Asheville in 2012 to start a fresh, new chapter in my life. I LOVE IT HERE! Operating my wonderful vacation apartment is my sole occupation. I enjoy being outdoors walking in the forests and kayaking on the French Broad River. Going out to eat is another favorite pastime--so many restaurants to choose from; I want to try them all! I love being a Homeaway host and meeting new people from...everywhere! It's a special pleasure of mine to see that my guests are comfortable and happy. I plan to stay here in my 'forever' home and keep up the apartment until they cart me off. I hope you'll give it a try--I believe you'll enjoy staying here! I'm looking forward to meeting you.

Melanie Curlee purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Melanie Curlee chose Asheville

This was the 3rd house I saw when house hunting and immediately felt it was for me. However, the idea of an apartment in the lower level came about a year later. This place is so special, I wanted to share it.

What makes this apartment unique

I loved how the wooded lot backs up to the golf course and is situated so that it's close but visually separated from neighbors. The location is awesome-close to downtown and easy access to anywhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great little place! Really enjoyed our stay. Comfortable bed. Quiet neighborhood. Our hostess was very accommodating to our requests. We had our daughter and her family over for a BBQ. Fireflies galore! Centrally located. Easy access to all points. Would definitely stay again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Melanie's place!

  • 5 of 5

Melanie's place is conveniently located for quick access to Downtown Asheville. We had plenty of space in the apartment for two of us and our dog. The yard was also great for our dog to run around outside. Melanie was wonderful and greeted us upon arrival. We would definitely stay here again!

Private, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay with Melanie. She is very sweet and responsive to any questions. The apt is clean and nicely decorated. Private entrance, patio and driveway. Her backyard is not fenced, but our pup stays close, so she was able to chase squirrels and roam! Bed was cozy and the bathroom linens were new and soft. We very much look forward to staying with her again.
