Asheville Area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

'Luca's Place' is a one bedroom semi-detached apartment located in a country setting yet only 3 miles from downtown. It is a short ride to everything you want to do in the Asheville area, including wonderful dining, gorgeous hiking, and antiquing. The Biltmore estate is 15 minutes away. After a day of sight seeing and adventure, Luca's Place is a great place to call home. Here you can cook a meal in the fully appointed kitchen area, watch TV, go on the internet, or just relax.

Our apartment has a very large living room and dining area with a fully equipped kitchen area and a tiled bath with a large shower. The bedroom has a queen size bed with a pillowtop mattress. There is a very comfortable queen size sofa with a pull-out bed in the living room.

The apartment has its own driveway and entrance and is a great place to unwind after a day exploring Asheville or as an alternative to a motel on a business trip

Asheville boasts activities which will satisfy all in your travel party. Hiking trails and outdoor activities such as horseback riding, canoeing, and whitewater rafting are within easy driving distance. Skiing and a zipline tour are within a 20 minute drive. For the shopper in your group, Asheville has a host of antique shops, boutiques, art galleries,and crafts. Evening activities include diverse dining options, movies, live theatre, live music, or just walking through Asheville's energetic downtown filled with street performers and art. The Biltmore estate is breathtaking in summer and glorious when decorated for Christmas. Chimney Rock Park is worth the 20 minute drive. Wonderful hiking and beautiful views await you in every direction. A drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway in autumn highlights the beautiful peak colors. There are many festivals throughout the year for the whole family.

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.

Quiet and Spacious home close to downtown Asheville

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over New Years weekend and had a fabulous time! The apartment was spacious and clean and had ample parking for both of our vehicles. When we went into downtown, it was just a short drive or affordable Uber ride, which was convenient with all that Asheville has to offer! It was quite cold when we were there, but in the Spring, Summer, and Fall I'm sure the little table and two rocking chairs out front would be lovely.

The kitchen was well-stocked with cookware, appliances, and dishes. The only thing we would have liked to see were a few mugs to drink our morning coffee! We were able to use tea cups and saucers, but they were quite small. There is an eclectic mix of spices in the cabinet, but if you need something specific it's probably wise to bring it yourself or stop by one of the grocery stores in town- Harris Teeter and Trader Joe's were less than 10 minutes away!

The bathroom was very nice, especially the heated floors! There were ample clean towels and wash cloths provided. It would have been nice to have at least one more roll of toilet paper but I realize that we came through at a busy time, so stock may have been low.

We also loved all of the windows, but in the mornings even more I loved that there are dark curtains that can be pulled over to sleep in and enjoy your vacation time. All in all we had a wonderful time in Asheville and a truly lovely stay at this property. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone and would stay here on future trips to Asheville- of which I hope there are many!

Good, inexpensive place to stay.

  • 3 of 5

Luca's Place is a good, inexpensive place to stay in Asheville. The location is convenient to downtown and W. Asheville. The neighborhood itself is not a walking neighborhood nor does it have any restaurants other than fast food. The small apartment has a wonderful shower and a very comfy sofa. Expect to hear the upstairs neighbors over the bedroom. Also, there are small donkeys in the neighborhood who are very talkative. That was great! I had spotty internet service but the cable TV was fine. The owner, Marilyn, provided very good customer service especially when I had to stay an extra night due to the bad travelling weather. The kitchen needs some deep, detail cleaning but the rest of the apartment was acceptable. Overall, it was a good stay.

Great spot right outside of downtown

  • 5 of 5

3 of us stayed here for a wedding weekend. It was a great location- easy Uber ride to Biltmore estate for the wedding as well as downtown for the reception. The rooms & bathroom were clean. I would definitely stay here again! Much more reasonable than the hotels in downtown.
