Overview

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Monthly Rentals Only. With a fresh coat of paint on the main floor, new furnishings and new decor, this unit is much improved after a steady stream of visitors over the past year. We have also recently replaced the sleeper sofa with a comfy new one.

This side-by-side Asheville duplex has long been a favorite of mine. Before I bought it, I used to drive by and just look at it. I was attracted by its location, its sturdy, green-built construction, its spacious and sunny layout and its roomy, clean design. It is a fairly new building, and we converted it to a vacation rental in the summer of 2013.

The location is surprisingly quiet, and looking at a map you might expect a lot of highway noise. But a high embankment muffles the sound, so the area is very peaceful. It is a little enclave with no direct connection to other neighborhoods, and there is very little traffic. It is an easy walk to the Visitor's Center and downtown, but the scenery along the service road is not especially appealing. So most guests make the 30 second drive to the Visitor's Center, and walk or ride from there. To get downtown plan on a two to five minute drive.

The building is a side-by-side duplex. Both sides have an identical three-level floor plan, but they are different because on side A, the caretaker, Claire, lives on the lower level. On side B, a huge tiled bedroom, a full bath, and laundry facilities are available to you. On both sides the upper level features two carpeted bedrooms with a bathroom in between. The beds are brand new and are some of the most comfortable you will ever experience. Our guests LOVE them and we have put the same brand in most of our other rentals.

The main level is where you enter. Here you will find the living room, the kitchen, a half bath, a dining nook and a back deck. Floors are hardwood and tile. There is a flat screen TV mounted on the living room wall between the bookshelves. On side A you will find a sleeper sofa that opens up to a full size bed. The open floor plan allows you to enjoy your family and friends while you cook. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans and utensils.

Our caretaker, Claire, is there to help you with any questions or concerns. She lives downstairs in side A and is happy to help if you need anything.

If you have a large group you can rent both sides. You can sleep up to 12 if two people use the sleeper sofa on side A.

Parking in the front is a little tight but two cars can fit if you park at an angle. The parking area can get muddy but we plan to expand it a bit and lay some stone. If you're staying on side B you can drive around to the back but we recommend you don't take a vehicle with low clearance back there because the gravel road has some uneven spots.

Please be aware that the neighborhood has residents of various income levels and is close to downtown. Occasionally a guest has mentioned this so please take it into consideration. The area is quite safe and we have always gotten along with the neighbors. We want our guests to have a good experience and to be happy, so please feel free to call or email us if you have any questions!

We specialize in property management services for short term rentals. We can also help you get started in vacation rentals so please feel free to contact us. Visit our web site at PeteKey dot com for more information.

If you are looking to make Asheville your home, this is a perfect home base for house hunting. We are a good resource if that's your plan, as we know the area and the market. So please let us know and we will help you any way we can.

Thanks and enjoy your stay in Asheville!

Reviewer Comments:

This place is clean, well kept, with all kitchen utensils and appliances working well. We stayed for 3 nights and was relaxing. All major attractions are just short driving distance. This is our second time we are staying in this place while on our vacation in Asheville so that goes to say a lot when you have so many choices. There are not many restaurants in walking distance but Downtown Asheville is just a few miles away and offers a lot of options. The beds are in good condition and our teen kids loved the fast WIFI too.

Great location, short uber ride to downtown. The rental was clean and nice, just as described. The only thing I would upgrade is the sofa, it was very uncomfortable. Loved our stay. Short Uber ride to downtown. We would stay again.

Reviewer Comments:

The unit was very close to downtown and a short ride from the Biltmore estate. Although close to the highway it was very quiet. The 2 bedrooms were good sized. Mattresses were comfortable and I loved the soft feel of the sheets. The sofa was very uncomfortable but I believe it was only temporary as there was a note stating the sleeper one had been broken. There were some stains on the hall and bedroom carpets. The location of the house was very convenient to all of the activities we did. Had a CUTE FRONT PORCH AND NICE DECK IN THE BACK.

We enjoyed our stay in Asheville over spring break. We were in town to visit family and tour UNCA for our soon to be college bound son. The property location was perfect for our visit. The proximity to campus and downtown was just what we wanted.

It was great. Myself and a friend visited Asheville for a yoga training. It was great having a kitchen to cut down on dining costs. Unit was very clean and comfortable. Granted, we weren't there very much since there's so much to do in Asheville but the time we did spend there was comfortable.
