                                It was clean & comfortable! Great place for a romantic Getaway. Only draw back was that it was 15 to 20 mins away from downtown.

                                Recommended for: Romantic getaway.

                                Owner response: Thanks Jay for the review and happy you enjoyed your stay! As described in VRBO listing, Holly Haven provides a serene retreat with vista views and is centrally located to major Asheville area attractions...only 10 minutes to Downtown Asheville and Biltmore Estates, 5 minutes Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 to 20 minutes to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Black Mountain. There's so much to do and see here, Holly Haven provides a great central location to start exploring!

                                I went during fall leaf season. This was so much better and less expensive than a hotel room. It was quiet and private and full of windows looking out to woods. It's in the country a short drive from Asheville. It was just as advertised except there is a photo of the deck that is actually part of the upstairs unit not this one. I would recommend this rental and stay there again next time I'm in the area.

                                Recommended for: People with disabilities, sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers, romantic getaway.

                                Owner response: Greatly appreciate the wonderful review Jennifer! Have updated the photo's on VRBO to better reflect the great views from Holly Haven outdoor patio and dining room seating area thanks to your review. Look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Asheville area!

                                This was our second stay at Holly Haven - we enjoy Oktoberfest in Asheville. The price is perfect and the unit is SO clean. It is located 15-20 minutes from downtown and very quiet! It is comfortably furnished and the property manager is quick to answer any questions. Don't wait - plan your trip today!

                                My wife was super suprised when we arrived..she could not believe that I choose such a place..Go me....Everything is wonderful...we love the drive to the big city and then coming back to peacefulness. the pictures are an understatement to the true visual...love the openess of the kitchen and livingroom..and everyone upstairs was quiet...it is exactly what we needed..love the no tv in bedroom...the only thing that can be worked on is the bed...upgrade the mattress and linen..Other than that Holly Haven is a winner and we will be recommending it to our friends....This will be our getaway location from now on..Thank you Susan for being so corteous as well

                                Overall my stay was good. The apartment looked just like the pictures. It was very clean and comfortable. Now if you're looking for a view, this may not be the place to stay. The lower level of the rental home does not have a mountain view. We had to dine in Asheville, it was just several minutes away.

                                Owner response: Thanks for the review Sophia and very glad you enjoyed your stay at Holly Haven! The property description under mountain views advises..."Stunning vista views in Fall, Spring and Winter...in height of Summer more secluded when 1.5 acres of lush landscape surrounding property is in full foliage" During the Summer months the lush green tall tree landscaping of Holly Haven creates a very secluded and serene environment and does somewhat obscure the mountain view enjoyed in the other seasons. Hope you will come and stay again in one of the other seasons to enjoy the vista views!!

                                We rented this property for a birthday weekend getaway, our first tie in Asheville, and had a great time. The pictures are true to the property, it was nicely done and very comfortable. Its also located almost right in between downtown Asheville and various outdoor destinations. Essentially its 10 to 20 minutes to a River / Lake for Fishing or Downtown for dining.. The only drawbacks we saw were the property is that is it for lack of a better way to say it, a basement apartment. The noise from the people who were staying above us wants bad but we could hear things such as heavy footsteps and loud laughter. Also when someone took a shower later at night the water heater which was beside the bedroom woke both of us up. In addition you cant control the temperature of the apartment, its on a static 72, which is great, but if you get cold sitting around or hot while you sleep it can be a bit annoying. Overall it was a good experience but not exactly what we expected.

                                Owner response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at Holly Haven for your first time in Asheville! As described in VRBO listing Holly Haven is an above ground level 1000 sq ft apartment, with drive up to the front door access, covered parking, and it's own secured key pad separate entrance. At times there may be others in residence on the main level of our 3 level property and sound proofing all levels is always a top priority. Perhaps what you may have heard in the night was our high end water filtration system performing automated self maintenance. As described in the welcome packet, hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the Amish electric fireplace/heater and the extra comforters and blankets in the rental bedroom closet for those 'cold snap' snuggling evenings when the preset rental unit 72 degrees year round temperature may desire something extra cozy. Also we are in process of adding a ceiling fan into the bedroom for those who may desire a light breeze while they sleep.

                                We had a lovely time for three days at Holly Haven. We were greeted on arrival by the owner and shown around the place. We were given lots of information on what to see in Ashville and there were many brochures available to us which made it even easier. Holly Haven was very clean and cosy and we really liked the location jusy 10 miles out of Asheville. It was a real retreat too, so quiet. We would recommend staying at Holly Haven. We loved it.

                                We arrived on Friday night and found a warm loaf of banana bread waiting for us on the table. The owner had left it for us. The keyless entry is great. The apartment is exactly as pictured and very, very clean. We had no problem with the electric fireplace in the living room that is provided so the renter can ramp up the heat if needed. Parking is right in front of the door. We would gladly stay here for another weekend visit.

                                Description and photos on listing are largely accurate for this nicely decorated and maintained property although map directions were insufficient -- even Google Maps couldn't find it, but we have submitted a correction. We arrived when Asheville was having a "cold snap" and were not exactly comfortable since we renters did not have any control over the unit's temperature settings. (Electric fireplace only helped in the living room.) This can be a delightful stopping-off place for a couple that wants to do it all -- downtown Asheville attractions as well as Blue Ridge Parkway environs. Eating and cooking in helps offset the rental costs. We recommend the nearby Food Lion for groceries. Our main destination was Biltmore House -- not to be missed -- and we also enjoyed visiting the Grove Park Inn and browsing in interesting downtown shops. The busy Tupelo Honey Cafe offers reasonable and tasty food.

                                Recommended for: People with disabilities, sightseeing, age 55+.

                                Owner response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Holly Haven and enjoyed some of the wonderful venues Asheville has to explore! Thanks to your review, we've added detailed information in the welcome packet on the extra comforters and blankets in the rental bedroom closet for those 'cold snap' snuggling evenings when the preset rental unit 72 degrees year round temperature may desire something extra cozy.

                                Clean and spacious living area, well furnished, reasonably stocked kitchen. Only recommendation that bed linen be replaced, as rather tired and not of comparable quality to the rest of accommodation. Both my husband and I had a very comfortable, relaxing stay for our six weeks at Holly Haven.

                                Owner response: Thanks for your review and after a 6 week rental we have 'retired' bed linens for new ones. Holly Haven being surrounded by over an acre of woods creates a serene retreat with wonderful vista views of mountains and provides easy access to 74A a two lane road at bottom of hill. Very rarely does two lane road noise penetrate the woods surrounding Holly Haven to be heard from the outside and is never heard from inside the apartment. We appreciate your feedback and glad to be part of your transition to Asheville area as your new home!
