Gorgeous property set downtown only a mile from the heart of it all. Very quiet neighborhood with easy access to the highways as well. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Owners were very helpful/ responsive with questions prior to booking the property. Property Manager very responsive and helpful during the stay. You won't regret staying here!

Owner's reply:

Asheville sunset view

December 12, 2012

Our stay at Lisa and Kris's home was so mellow. The porch, with a sunset view of the city and mountains, was so very comfy, with couch and rocker and swing and table. We spent quality time out there, and on the spacious patio with our Asheville grandchildren. We brought our lab and she really enjoyed the neighborhood dogs. This is such an elegant home, within walking distance of Greenlife, the City Bakery, and downtown.Thanks to Karen O, the caretaker, for making time to show us around and answer all of our questions. Every room in the house has been crafted with care. Thank you Lisa and Kris.

Owner's reply:

Dear Karen, Neil and Sunni Day,

Thank you so much for choosing our home for your Asheville vacation! We were delighted to know that you would be hosting your Asheville grandchildren and walking our precious neighborhood with Sunni Day throughout your stay. Thank you for your kind compliments and taking such good care of our home during your stay; you are most welcome to return and hopefully we will be in town next time to meet you personally!

Warmest regards, Lisa and Kris

Beautiful, well-equipped, cozy home in Asheville

December 2, 2012

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us Lisa, we loved it!! We could not decide what was our favorite between the wonderful front porch, cozy living room with awesome gas fireplace, stunning dining room, well-equipped, beautiful kitchen, fantastic master shower and great location!! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, and a trip to the Biltmore (can't miss this) for the Christmas display (10 min. drive), and many walks to town to shop (20 min. walk). There is a great whole food two minutes away, think we were there everyday! We loved Asheville and will return to your lovely home again. Thanks for the great family memory!

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Becky! We were delighted to have your family in our home for Thanksgiving and are SO happy that you loved both the home and the area! Asheville is very special indeed and we are glad that our home provided you a cozy and convenient location from which to enjoy the city. Please come back soon!

What a wonderful home to stay in while visiting a great town! Our family loved every minute of our time spent in this cozy spot. It was perfect for our short getaway to Asheville...comfy accommodations & close to lively downtown. The hot tub was icing on the cake :-)

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Tammy! So glad you picked our home for your brief stay and that it provided you comfort and relaxation before you hit the road again! And thanks for such a quick review!

Beautiful Place, Beautiful Owner

March 13, 2012

Serious attention to detail. The place and the owner were amazing. Super close to downtown, yet it's nice and quiet. Top shelf appliances, cozy couch, fireplace, jacuzzi. Seriously, there's nothing more I could ask for.

Owner's reply:

Aww, thanks Matthew! I'm so glad we could accomodate you and your team on your brief "power meeting" trip to Asheville. I can't wait to meet you when I am back in Asheville in the summer. Thanks for the kind review and for taking such good care of the house! All the best! Lisa

Great location and fantastic owners

August 18, 2011

We needed a home near to the Grove Park Inn because we had relatives staying there. This one fit the bill! My complaining son, took the room with the desk and immediately set up his laptop. As soon as he saw the super cool master shower, he insisted on using it instead of the second bath shower. I have a very modern kitchen at home with nice appliances, but I was still jealous of those at this home. Wish I had actually cooked more with them! Very quiet neighborhood and any issues were dealt with immediately and thoroughly. Owners are sooo sweet and thoughtful. Can't wait to go back. By far, the nicest home we've rented in the Ashville area and we've rented plenty.

Loved this house!

August 18, 2011

Great house, tastefully decorated, well appointed. Super comfy beds (tho you need a ladder to get into them!). Especially loved the porch, with its swing, and the outside ceiling fan, which really helped during hot summer nights. Great to have a split dishwasher for smaller loads -- just something not mentioned in previous reviews. Was perfect for us, our 4 yr old son (who loved the office as his bedroom), and our two kitties. As well as the additional visiting guest. The house is also very accessible to downtown, but still quiet & peaceful. The "staff" (caretaker & housekeeper) are also first rate, super helpful, and friendly. If we come back to Asheville, we know where to stay! Thanks so much!

The pictures don't tell the story...

July 23, 2010

This was our first time venturing out on a road trip. We rented this lovely home for a month and had one of the most wonderful vacations ever. The house is absolutely gorgeous with every detail attended to. The kitchen is lovely and so well equipped with beautiful new stainless steel appliances; deep composite sinks; stone countertops; and plenty of pots and pans, dishes and flatware. We didn't need to bring a thing. The dining table seats six with room for maybe eight. The living room has a lovely stone fireplace, large 46" LED TV on the wall and fantastic stereo system. This house was professional decorated eclecticly with beautifully selected pieces and accents. The bedrooms have 800 thread count sheets and sensational bedding. The towels were heavy and plentiful. The wrap around porch offered plenty of seating and lots of scenery. Fireflies would adorn the sky at dusk which was a fun surprise. The neighbors were all friendly and inviting. It is truly more than a house, it is a home and we can't wait to go back.

Would've been nice...

March 12, 2010

I tried 3 times to contact this owner, and never got a response. I would have been very interested in this property had I gotten any response from the owner. Don't know if this is a website issue, or if I was just being ignored.

Date of Stay July 1, 2012

I recently rented this property for a month and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The accommodations totally lived up to expectations right down to kitchen implements. The listing pictures accurately depict the property and everything was very well maintained. I especially loved the porch. It was perfect for a morning coffee and a good read and in the evening for a nice glass of wine and a good view. I tried all the seating arrangements and loved them all. It is close to downtown as advertised and also has a spectacular butcher shop right down the street for enjoying their great barbecue grill. Even the barbecue grilling implements are top of the line!! I highly recommend and hope to return for another stay.

Great house in very good location!

Date of Stay June 28, 2012

I spent 3 nights at the house with my 4 girlfriends from college. We really enjoyed the home and Asheville. Despite the heat we spent quite a few hours out on the porch talking and laughing. The house had everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable, the house was very clean, plenty of room for us. The house was just a mile from the middle of town -- we walked to breakfast. The city had lots to do, good food and wonderful locals -- we would return to the house in heartbeat!
