  • Kudos from Newbies!

    "We don’t vacation frequently, but when we do, it’s often a stay with relatives. So, we were total newbies to VRBO/Homeaway and a little nervous about booking a cabin this way. I’m happy to say that our stay at Villa Roma was a wonderfully pleasant surprise. I assumed that the beautiful online pictures probably flattered the cabin as brochure-type pictures often do, but we were blown away when we got inside and explored this property for ourselves. There were beautiful and interesting things to see in every room. Our adult kids loved it! I particularly loved the layout of the cabin. There was plenty of room for everyone with a floor plan that created an environment for privacy as well as cozy togetherness. It was just right. We did have one little issue with the freezer. The pipe delivering water to the ice-maker apparently had a leak and the entire ice bin was a solid block of ice. We contacted the property manager, who was very responsive and sent someone out to take a look at it. In the meantime, we made a trip to the nearby Ingles and got a bag of ice. As it turned out, we picked a very rainy weekend for our trip, but Villa Roma was again perfectly located because of its easy accessibility in residential Hendersonville. I had originally wanted a secluded cabin, high atop a mountain, but for this trip, I’m glad we didn't have to navigate any winding, gravel or dirt roads. This property is very conveniently located to many attractions. Our big outing was a trip to the Biltmore Estate which was an easy half hour drive away. Our stay at Villa Roma was a great experience and a precious time of memory making for my family. Many thanks!"

  • Exactly what we needed for a weekend in Asheville

    "This was my family's first experience with a VRBO vacation and we could not have been more pleased. This home is perfectly maintained, clean and well equipped. The location is ideal for a Biltmore trip. The views were great and everyone felt right at home. We cooked in the kitchen, grilled a little on the BBQ and enjoyed the deck as much as we could. You won't be disappointed with Joe and Marilyn's home."

  • Serene, Cozy, Romantic = Perfect.

    "We really loved our stay here. Just what we needed to recharge a bit and enjoy the mountains and each other on our anniversary. Wish we could have stayed longer. It really is close to downtown Asheville, but feels like it's away from everything. Even with the leaves fallen, it's pretty private. And the view is astounding. I can't imagine you're going to find a better cabin situation than this one, and thankfully, the decor is not the cheesy "bears & quilts" stuff you find in a lot of places. It's kinda "modern rustic," and none of it feels like 15 year old rejects that came from the owner's personal house (you know what I'm talking about). The cabin is very clean. Dishes are quality. The bed and sheets were amazing. The fireplace and hot tub were so worth the extra $. The manager, Brea, was great, too. Only downside I suppose is the drive up and down the mountain. It's a really steep haul without many switchbacks, but I guess that's to be expected. I don't think a 4wd would even have much luck on those grades in icy conditions, so get the travel insurance if you're staying in the winter. BTW, the restaurant suggestions in the book are outdated. There are WAY better places in Asheville now. Try Bull & Beggar, Table, The Admiral, Curate, Rhubarb, Red Stag ($$$) or Zambra, Strada, Salsa, Nine Mile ($$). But Barley's is still a great choice for pizza & beer. And don't miss the French Broad Chocolate Lounge for coffee & dessert. Last thing to know, we considered coming back with our kids (9 & 7), but there's not much space for unstructured play outside given that it's situated on the side of a mountain. Just FYI. Beautiful nonetheless."
