About Brea Gratia & David Robinson
My name is David Robinson. Born in Chicago and moved to the south when I was 10. Lived in Jackson, Mississippi in the early 60's then moved to Houston, Texas with family. I've lived in Arkansas, Louisiana - just love the south. When I met my wife, Brea in Houston, she was interested in living in Asheville. After visiting several times, I found that I loved the mountains, the weather and all the outdoor activities along with the variety of wildlife. Brea and I moved to Asheville in October, 2014 and enjoy the lifestyle in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Brea Gratia & David Robinson purchased this Bungalow in 2010
Why Brea Gratia & David Robinson chose Fairview
I bought my first property (VRBO #214785 - Woodland Chalet) in 2008 and had the opportunity to purchase the adjoining property - The Bungalow. Both are private and on a pristine mountain - there is nothing else like it in the area. Each property is located on 2 acres with a forest canopy that still amazes me to this day. It is serene, cool (even in the summer) and beautiful in the winter.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The Bungalow is perfect for a couple to share time with each other in a private, serene setting. Cozy gas fireplace, perfect size kitchen and large bathtub with shower.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Bungalow was perfect for the stay I had in mind: Quiet time to reflect and to work on my book; easily accessible to hiking trails and downtown. Will definitely return...again and again! Very attractive and comfortable accommodation with great deck and view.
long weekend at the Bungalow!
My husband and I had such a great time at the Bungalow! Every part of the description is 100% correct. The location and views are perfect. Brea is definitely the best host I have ever dealt with! She is extremely accommodating and goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best stay and trip! The drive into Asheville is a quick 20-25 minutes. We also did a 3.5 mile hike at Wildcat Rock which was a 15-20 minute ride, on the way back we stopped by Turgua Brewery which was only ~10 minutes from the Bungalow. Highly recommend this property and we plan to come back in the future!
We loved having you stay at the Bungalow and hope that you truly do come again. It is the cutest place and we hear lots of gratitude for how peaceful and serene it is. Amazing view combined with a soak in the hot tub after a fun day hiking is just about the best. Thanks so much for choosing The Bungalow.

Beautiful property, great location, amazing view!
We stayed at the bungalow for our anniversary and absolutely fell in love with it. Such an amazing location with a great view. It was nice to have the privacy, but still be close to Asheville. It truly felt like a home away from home and we can’t wait to go back! Thank you Brea - you guys are awesome!
We're so glad you found the Bungalow. It is an easy place to get to from Asheville and so beautiful and peaceful when there. You pointed out the most amazing thing about it - the location, the view and the privacy. We look forward to hearing from you many times throughout the coming years. Brea & David
Perfect Asheville Stay
The Bungalow was perfect for our stay. We originally planned to stay downtown, but Im glad we chose this instead. Visiting downtown was fun, and the bungalow was only about a 15 minute drive. The place was clean and was very quiet and relaxing. The hot tub was perfect way to unwind after hiking and walking all day. The gas fireplace will get the place warm... quick! The last mile drive was very steep, but the roads are paved and in good shape (last 1/4 mile was gravel but mostly level). We went slow and cautious the first time and had no issues. Owners take a lot of pride in their property and your stay and are attentive to your needs. We will definitely stay at their property again in the future.
Check out Catawba falls (20ish min drive) for a easy hike with beautiful views, or Graybeard Mountain trail for great views but a sometimes challenging all-day hike (10 miles/7 hours round-trip with stops to enjoy the views and eat lunch). Bring plenty of water and snacks.
David - that was just an amazing review. You know the last part of the drive (the flat part) was our gravel driveway. The roads are all paved on the mountain. You wrote everything in a nutshell and covered the best of the Bungalow. We are happy you found the Bungalow perfect for your needs and that you were able to find great hiking in the area. Catawba Falls is really a wonderful hike - we've not been to Graybeard Mountain - I'm thinking that would be a good one to look for. We hope you come again very soon. Brea & David
Very Romantic! Perfect Getaway!
This bungalow checked all the boxes for me: Great views, awesome hot tub, fireplace, Weber grill, 10-minutes from Ashville, 5-minutes from a grocery store, private, and super clean & comfortable. It was perfect, and the owners are great. It's a very romantic getaway. We can't wait to book it again next year. The leaves were just starting to change and the evenings were chilly, making the hot tub really enjoyable. Hiked Dupont park 45 minutes away (great drive though) which has breathtaking waterfalls. Had breakfast at Tupelo Honey in Ashville...YUM!
Beautiful and relaxing
We had a wonderful time at the bungalow. It is nestled on the side of the mountain in the woods with a beautiful view on the back deck - perfect place for enjoying our coffee and breakfast each morning. The kitchen was clean, recently updated, and had all the cookware and utensils we needed. It’s an easy drive to downtown Asheville, about 10-15 minutes, and to the blue ridge parkway for great hikes. We are so happy we stayed in the bungalow to enjoy the crisp air and quiet on the mountain instead of being in a hotel downtown. The owners were very helpful and want to make sure we had a great stay. I would definitely recommend this place.
Brian - thanks so much for visiting the Bungalow for your trip to Asheville. Thanks also for mentioning how clean it is as we do take pride in making sure the Bungalow is spotless for our guests. Driving to town is very easy and yet we are located in the mountains with a fabulous view so you get to enjoy it all. We do hope you come again and thank you for the recommendation. Brea & David
