PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A 10 DOLLAR PER NIGHT PET FEE THAT MUST BE LEFT IN RENTAL AT CHECKOUT. We maintain this rental strictly as non smoking however it was smoked in in the past .

Nice older home, wonderfully renovated
The house is an updated older home so the floors are uneven and creaks bit, but the furnishings are all nice and comfortable. Easy access to downtown but still secluded enough to be quiet at night.
Was clean and very convenient to everything.
Perfect house for our stay!
Is the house perfect? No, but nothing is. Hotels are not perfect either. Some other reviews were very negative and I think were way too harsh. This place is so cute! We spent the day at the Biltmore Estate and this was only a 15 min drive (if that). It was comfortable to just hang out and relax in. We all slept great! It was 90F the day we were there and had no issues with it being too warm. Each bedroom has a window unit upstairs and the main level has central air. I found the place very clean. Ralph is such a gracious host and was always extremely fast to answer questions. I also like that his price is his price and doesn’t have $100+ in extra fees like many others. I would rent this place again! Thanks Ralph! What would make my four star into a five star? If one or two of the rooms had a queen size bed that would have been perfect! Highly recommend this place!
For the Budget Traveler, but Renter Be Warned
Ralph’s place is a good spot for a no-frills, budget traveler. The house is conveniently located 10 minutes from Downtown Asheville and as advertised has four bedrooms and two baths. Now the less appealing details. Prior to arrival, Ralph texted me a pincode for entry into the house. We were unable to figure out how to use the pincode and he was unresponsive to a response text requesting further instruction. Consequently, we were unable to lock the house for the duration of our stay. There is a musty odor that permeates the air in the house and despite opening windows, the stench remained. The bathrooms also have a wet, musty smell. The house does not have central air and bedrooms are cooled with window units. The window unit in one of the bedrooms was not functioning properly during our stay. Fortunately temperatures were moderate during our visit, but even with mild temperatures, the upstairs bedroom without a window unit was exceptionally hot. Further, numerous light bulbs were out in fixtures around the house and generally the house was not at the apex of clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was not well-appointed for cooking/eating if you are visiting and wish to eat-in. Lastly, the décor of the house was a little bizarre. Overall, I would not recommend this rental to other people, but it may be suitable for an unfussy group looking for a budget stay.
No I did not Love it!
Ralph was always so helpful and quick to reply to my questions. So I hate giving this property only one star. This was my first experience with VRBO and planning a 3 week trip this summer with family. VRBO will not be part of this plan. I will be factual. We arrived late and stayed one night at this property, as scheduled. Pictures are very deceiving. Wherever I stay, I expect cleanliness and comfort. The upstairs was extremely cold, the sheets were pilled and not soft, the mattresses were old and so incredibly uncomfortable. Turned on what seemed to be heat on a low wall unit upstairs. The dust on the heating unit put off a smell. And behind the bed was dust and plain dirtiness. I just hate to review a property this way, but any place one pays for should absolutely provide a clean environment. My father slept downstairs, which was comfortable for him until the downstairs became hot from trying to heat the upstairs. He woke up and we had to turn down the heat. Ended up sleeping on the couch and was so uncomfortable wondering just how clean the comforter was I pulled off the upstairs bed. Urine was on the base of the main toilet with grime behind the toilet. The shower curtain liner was nasty. The baseboards were covered in dirt and dust. Oh, in the upstairs bedroom something was smeared on the wall near the door. Sure, the kitchen is remodeled. The island is cute and so are the cabinets. The tile in the kitchen floor is nice. Opened the oven to reheat muffins when we first arrived and that was the indication that perhaps the 5 star reviews were something I didn’t understand. The oven was dirty, the refrigerator had something near the edge of it. The dining room table was cute and modern and this place had a nice front porch. Beds upstairs do not provide comfortable accommodations, plus sheets appear and feel old and scratchy. Beds need replacement as well as all sheets, pillows and comforters. Shower curtains need replaced and washed after each visit. The overall house had a bit of a musty smell. This place can be a cute place, but oh it’s not clean. When I travel 600 miles, and pay for anyplace with 5 star reviews and nice pictures, I expect cleanliness and to go to bed in a comfortable bed with clean linens. Plus the window by the upstairs bedroom was drafty and did not keep out the cold. It’s a learning experience for certain. It was not a good experience.
Comfortable stay for our family.
