Asheville apartment description

My historic home was built 100 years ago and is fully and beautifully renovated. It's located just 1/2 mile from the heart of downtown Asheville.
The space you'll be renting is the first floor of the home, a 900 square foot apartment. I live upstairs in a separate unit, and I use a different entrance, so you'll have total privacy. (The spiral stairway in the photos has been closed off to separate your space from mine).
The house is uniquely situated: neighboring houses are quite a good distance away and there are lots of trees and greenery outside, so the setting is very natural, but you're still just a short, easy walk from downtown.
The Neighborhood, (historically called Hazzard Heights), is home to an eclectic mix of artists, young families, and working class people. This is not an upscale neighborhood, but it is full of friendly folks who make you feel welcome.
Main living area:
-800 square feet with an open, urban loft feel
-sleek, uncluttered, minimalist decor
-hardwood floors
-queen size Tempur Pedic bed with very nice linens
-full size futon for extra bed or to be used as couch
-lots of sunlight, trees and greenery all around
- expanded cable TV

Kitchenette amenities:
-microwave, toaster oven, small fridge
-coffee maker, electric kettle
-organic coffee and cream porvided
-sink, counter top, small dining table
-all utensils, ice bucket which I fill upon request

Bathroom:
-full bath, clean, updated
-good water pressure
- all water from sinks and shower is on a house filtration system: great for drinking, easy on you skin when bathing

Other Amenities:
-large storage closet for your belongings
-wireless internet
-extremely quiet, efficient ductless central AC/heat
-optional cozy gas log stove for winter

Outside:
-private, sunny covered porch
-street parking always readily available; no meters or other restrictions
-an easy 1/2 mile walk to the heart of downtown
-2 minute walk to the city's nicest tailgate farmers' market (Saturday mornings, April-November)
-Private entrance ** PLEASE NOTE: THE STAIRCASE FROM THE STREET UP TO THE APARTMENT ENTRANCE IS STEEP AND LONG SO PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU HAVE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS**

I feel it's important to mention that my main living quarters are not directly over the apartment, so you will not be disturbed by my presence. This house is very well built with thick walls and floors. (No creaking floors or loud footsteps overhead like in some downstairs units!). It's a very quiet, peaceful place.

All in all, this is the perfect spot for those who want to experience downtown Asheville within walking distance yet have serene, private accommodations to come home to.
This apartment is a special place and my guests are consistently thrilled with it.
I look forward to hosting you soon!

                                We stayed here on a weekend away from the kids. The place was better than advertised and sure as heck beat staying in a hotel. The owner was easy to communicate with during our stay and very hospitable. There was not much she had not thought of and she stayed out of our way the whole weekend. The place was spotless first and foremost. I thought it cool the owner provided coffee you could turn on each morning. The towels and sheets were all provide and the bed was a Tempurpedic and slept great. It was also great to wake up and feel the coolness of the place as it is in the bottom level of the house. The location was just a short walk down the hill from Pack square, and all the restaruants, shops and breweries up on Biltmore Ave. We walked everywhere with ease which is what we like. The owner also emailed us suggestions on where to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and I recommend them to whoever stays here. She knows Asheville. I must say I was a little concerned at first about the location but it is a very safe neighborhood with neighbors out in their yard with their kids in the mornings. We basically got to live in Asheville for a weekend and you can't get that at a hotel The only thing I would say is if you have any issue going up and down steps then I would not suggest this place to you

                                We had a great time staying here! The apartment was perfectly located to downtown which allowed us to walk. The apt was clean, well appointed and our host had delicious coffee for us.

                                Valorie was a great host. Easy to book and received clear details about rental. Unit was immaculately clean and was spacious. Was only about a 10 minute walk to downtown, but house is located slightly outside of downtown area. We decided to take cab late Saturday night when returning. Highly recommend the host and the house and will definitely return!

                                If you want a great location that is walking distance from town, yet situated in a peaceful neighborhood where you can relax on the front porch and listen to the birds then this is a perfect place to stay when in Asheville. Valorie has paid attention to every detail and was so helpful when we had questions. We would definitely reccommend this apartment.

                                After many trips to Asheville staying in hotel rooms, a friend and I spent a wonderful weekend in this cute place. We enjoyed both our weekend, and the apartment. The location is wonderful and we walked downtown both days , it's an easy stroll to the best of Asheville. I appreciated the fresh organic coffee, the rockers on the front porch in the sunshine, and the warm glow of the gas fired woodstove at night. The bed and futon were wonderfully comfortable, the kitchen clean and well-stocked and Valorie was very helpful and welcoming. We look forward to returning soon! (Loved The Imperial Bar and Table restaurant!)

                                My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and fell in love with the place. The host provided us with all the information we needed ahead of time and upon arrival. She was there the moment we arrived to provide us with a brief orientation of the place and answer any questions (this is important!). The apartment was everything we expected and so much more. Plenty of room for the 2 of us and could easily fit 2 more people. The apartment is a studio set-up with 1 queen size bed, a futon/couch, bathroom, kitchen, and an additional room to store luggage and extra belongings. The kitchen had everything you would need and the host even provided creamer for our coffee in the morning. The bathroom came with a suitable number of towels and body wash in the shower. Since it was February, the heating was especially important and worked very well. I also want to mention how clean every room in the apartment was..OMG I was very impressed by this as I appreciate immaculate clean conditions. The best part of the apartment is that it's very close to downtown (about a 10 min walk) and close to all the bars and restaurants we wanted to venture to. I would recommend this apartment to anyone and would stay there again if given the option. I found it to be less expensive than all the downtown hotel options in Asheville. An overall wonderful place to stay.

                                I brought my mom to Asheville to celebrate her 50th birthday. We stayed in this beautiful apartment and had an amazing visit. The place was spotless and was decorated very well. Valorie was awesome and helped us with everything we needed. There was a cute gas log heater in the corner that kept us very warm and cozy throughout our stay. The bed was a tempurpedic bed and was super comfy. My mom and I both have neck issues and we slept like babies! There was also a futon for extra sleeping space. There is a kithenette area with a microwave, coffee maker, fridge, and tea kettle. The bathroom was updated and very clean. The walk to downtown was super easy - 1/2 a mile and took about 5-7 minutes. I will stay here from now on (given there is availability), and I will recommend it to my friends and family. Unique and cozy apartment with a convenient location - couldn't ask for anything more!!

                                Great location and a wonderful place to stay. This place is so very cozy with some very personal touches of home. What a superb hostess! There was the threat of ice during our stay (did not manifest, thank goodness), but our hostess offered to text us if something started falling while we were at the music venue, provided flashlights/salt & made sure we knew where the extra blankets/comforters were located. The extra warmth of the gas logs was much appreciated! I would love to stay here again.

                                My husband, myself and our adult daughter just spent 2 wonderful nights in this lovely apartment. It is located within easy walking distance to downtown Asheville. The owner Valorie was amazing, she even picked us up and returned us to airport, as well as driving us to a concert that was a bit out of walking distance, she was also very helpful on restaurant recommendations. Look forward to returning for another visit and would definitely recommend a stay here.

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: I was born and raised in North Carolina and have lived in Asheville for nearly 20 years. After graduating from The Colorado College, I moved here to take a job in outdoor education, and I was so happy here that I stayed. I love the natural beauty of the mountains combined with the eclectic downtown scene. My career for the past 15 years has been in music, as a singer songwriter. I know a lot about what's going on musically in Asheville, so fee free to ask for suggestions. I have toured and performed all over the country, and I know what it's like to be a guest in someone's home. My style as a host is to be completely available if you need anything, but otherwise let you have total privacy. I have really been enjoying managing this property and renting to short term guests, in fact it has become a second job for me. The apartment does not sit unattended; I am very conscientious about keeping it extremely clean and in good repair. I truly care about your experience here. The satisfaction of my guests makes me happy too!!

                              Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                              I bought this special, historic home in the heart of Asheville because I had been living out in the country for a long time and I really wanted to be more connected to community, friends, and the vibrant downtown scene. I have a very clear memory of looking through the window and seeing the downstairs space when I was house hunting. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to buy it! I am very happy here.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              This home was newly renovated when I purchased it- all I had to do was move in! It feels really welcoming and serene. This house is my sanctuary. It has a special combination of close proximity to downtown (views included) and a quiet, natural setting in the trees. Extra amenities include the extremely comfortable Tempur Pedic queen size bed, luxury linens, whole-house water filter (drinking and bathing water are filtered), expanded cable TV, quiet, efficient ductless central air, and much more
