Beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful with any questions I had. The property was very nice. The house was clean, had plenty of room, and had an incredible view off the back porch. Very nice pool table! I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Great private getaway

  • 4 of 5

This property was really nice. We went to celebrate my husband's 60th with several other couples. Everything was as advertised. The house was clean and well equipped. The views from the deck were absolutely stunning. We were thrilled that both Uber and Lyft came to the property as it is a bit secluded and we wanted to go to downtown Asheville, which we did.

Katie was great to work with and once we got up the twisty and sometimes gravelly road, all was well. It was worth it!

Beautiful Scenery and House

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the scenery off the back porch was breathtaking. We only stayed a couple nights but would love to come back and spend more time. Very well equipped house. We did have some trouble with the propane grill and ended up using the charcoal grill. It appeared it may be low on propane. Overall, this is an excellent piece of property. One recommendation: Arrive during daylight hours. :) The house is secluded so there are several turns that might be a little difficult to see at night.

Owner's Response: Dale, Thank you for taking the time to comment. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Paradise Peaks. I'm sorry you had an issue with the outdoor gas stove. There is always an extra propane tank in the garage and it will be changed out. Kind regards, Katie

House with an incredible view

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and well furnished house with a beautiful, unobstructed view of the surrounding mountains. Only negatives were a poor internet connection and lots of beetles that entered the house through spaces around a window air conditiiner as well as around a back door. Once those spaces were blocked the problem ended.

Fixable Flaws

  • 2 of 5

I’ll start by saying that I hate to give below a four star review and this will be my first, however I do think perspective renters should be aware that there are some hiccups with this property. (The good news is they could be easily fixed.) Upon arrival at 6:30 in the evening our children quickly began the process of calling dibs on rooms....only to all come screaming down the stairs. The adults then spent the next two hours exterminating the upstairs bedrooms of stink bugs (and a few wasp and lady bugs). We killed no less than 80 stink bugs the first night (we stopped counting after 73 only to find the mother load behind a hung mirror). It of course took another hour to convince the kids that we had gotten them all and it was safe to sleep upstairs. We texted the owner who responded fairly quickly (40mins. later) and while she was pleasant she had no recommendations for us. I think what really was unfortunate (for us) was that she was aware of the problem as she stated she had her housekeeper spraying for them with a homemade concoction and had previously contacted an exterminator. While I agree that indoor pesticides are not recommended and I appreciate the non-use I would recommend the owner look into outdoor preventions. Luckily Siri was able to give us some recommendations (placing/rubbing air conditioner window units with dryer sheets). Yet to our dismay the infestation was pretty intense and each day upon return we were met with another challenge. I do understand given the nature of the location bugs can be a nuisance however in our 7 years of fall travels to Asheville (at times staying in yurts) we have never encountered insects to this degree.

While this was beyond frustrating (especially given the demeanor of our kids) I will not overlook the beauty of this house. It was impeccably clean, and well decorated. We did not realize the yard is not flat (so keep that in mind if you’re looking to have yard play with the littles), however the view was amazing. We were asked to turn on the hot water heater upon arrival which had a difficult time keeping warm water for more than 3-4 showers (spread out over 5 hours), this also continued into the weekend, and there was no option to turn up the heat (which is understandable in a rental property).

Again, my apologies for the low rating, my parents have rental property so I know the implications, I’d just hate for another family to find themselves in the same predicament.

Owner's Response: Sarah, Thank you for your comments. It is regularly maintained by a pest control company. The home remedy was recommended by the pest control company and our house keeper sprays before guests arrive. The house just underwent major renovations with a new hot water heater. When the house is vacant, the hot water heater is turned off and may take a few hours to heat up, as per house directions. Now that it's been brought to our attention, the hot water heater will be left on. We try to depict the house and the grounds surrounding the house with our pictures on the website. We also recommend arriving during daylight hours the first day because we are located in the mountains. The roads can be challenging, as we found them the first few times we drove them ourselves. Again, we apologize for the stink bugs and any issues you had at the house. We want our guests to have a great experience so you leave there a little more peaceful and relaxed. Kind regards, Katie

Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with a large group of friends for the weekend while whitewater rafting in the area. The home was perfect for our needs. The deck is huge, with plenty of seating and tables to accommodate a large group. The views from the back of the house are beautiful! The pictures do no do it justice! The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook for a large group. The pool table in the garage was a bonus as well. The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this house.
