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 Beverly Hills

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!

Loved staying here. Melanie was great, not intrusive but there just enough to make you feel welcomed. Great backyard for our dogs and great location. Would definitely recommend to others and would definitely stay again! Thanks.

Only downfall is the bed is a little concaved in the middle. I slept fine but my girlfriend and I noticed it. Not enough to knock it down a star though. Still a great stay.

You are the first to tell me about the bed, and I will get right on that (and this tells me I should occasionally stay in the apt!)Thank you for mentioning it-- I want things perfect for my guests!

What a great STAY!

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading reviews then chances are you are considering this rental. Stop reading and go ahead and book it before someone else does! Melanie was a great host! She was there when you needed her but kept her distance for privacy as well! Bed is super comfy, bathroom is really nice, love the shower and the location is great. Takes less than 4 or 5 minutes to get to downtown Asheville. Very clean and have your own entrance to get down the driveway. She has a coffee maker and keeps cream and sugar there for you as well as coffee! By the way if you are still reading.. for breakfast if you have not been then go to BISCUITHEAD & Sunny Pointe Cafe. Don't look anywhere else. Early girl eatery is good too so if you are there for more than 2 days throw that one in but go to the first 2. Just a great charming little place, actually not that little . Plenty of space, it was a perfect stay. Thank you!

Quaint and quiet

Nice rooms, very convenient to everything, has everything you would need for a night or several days, and Melanie the owner could not be nicer or more helpful. Two thumbs up from my daughter and me.
