Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the stay. It was nice to have such a large space as we spent a lot of time indoors (rain-filled weekend)! Birdsong and rooster and "donkey song" woke us each morning. It was lovely.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the rural feeling location. Enjoyed sitting on the front porch amid the lovely flowers. It is a perfect location for getting to Pack Square. The only downside was the the upstairs neighbors activity right above the bedroom. Woke me up earlier that I would have liked. However I would definitely stay there again.

Good value for apartment convenient to downtown Asheville

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I came with our 2 year old son to visit family living in West Asheville. This place is almost exactly as advertised (down to the donkey), the only negative surprise was finding that the upstairs renter's central operations area was right over the bed. If upstairs noise bothers you, bring ear plugs. There is an 11PM noise curfew out of respect for the upstairs renters, which they also seemed to have in place, since it was quiet after that. The pillow top bed is very firm, took me a couple of nights to get used to. Otherwise it was spacious, comfortable and clean apartment with a nice little kitchen. It makes a good staging area for going out and seeing the Asheville sights. The garden and and grape vines growing out front are very charming and there are fireflies to enjoy at night on the front porch. There is no screen on the front door though so preventing mosquito and other insect invasions means keeping the main door closed.

The appartment was convenient to shopping and groceries. I did enjoyed a lot the little table and chais outside, under the porch...very quiet, friendly neighborood.

Unfortunaly, the appartment inside had a musty and moldy smell.

The batroom was fine with a nice walk in shower, plenty of cleaned towels.

The kitchen really need remodeling and improvement. The fan did not work well. there was no dishwasher, which is fine, but I barely did have a place to put the clean dishes.

i love to cook and there were really not a lot of choice of ustensils, bowls, pans etc... I have to ask my son to bring me some from his house. ( oven proof pans.)

There were roaches in the kitchen . Need exterminator....

The matresse in the bedroom seems like it needs to be changed.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were disappointed in our apartment. As you can see from our other reviews most of our renters are very happy It has been raining for over a week, so it may have seemed a little musty. A few sunny days will alleviate that. We don't have a gourmet kitchen, but there are enough dishes, pans and bowls for making dinners. I haven't seen evidence of bugs, but I will check that out immediately. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and are proud of our apartment.

Well equipped, private, furnished apartment in quiet, safe neighborhood; all photos were accurate. Perfect size for 2 adults & 1 dog. Easy driving to many restaurants, grocery stores, Blue Ridge Parkway and many Asheville attractions. North Asheville has a great toy store and many restaurants.

The owner takes pride in the cleanliness, modern conveniences and maintenance of this property. Phone calls are returned if not immediately, within hours.
