About the property

Spacious, stylish suite in the heart of lovely West Asheville

Welcome to Urban Abode! If like me you feel that convenience is the ultimate amenity then you will love Urban Abode. Located half a block off of Haywood in the hip West Asheville neighborhood where you can walk to dining, music, retail shops, a bookstore, the coolest video store in town! There are pubs and even a massage school just to name a few! And did I mention that you can walk to the farmers market on Tuesday? Finally, Downtown Asheville is just a seven minute Uber ride away.

>The space:

Urban Abode is decorated in what I like to call "retro vintage modern." I have lots of DVDs for you to enjoy. And comfortable seating throughout.

>Guest access:

You will have access to the entire apartment.

>Interaction with guests:

Just let me know if there is anything that you need. I am here to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible!

About Elisa Alvarado

Hi I'm Elisa, I have lived in the Asheville area for over 10 years and am originally from Chicago. I moved here of course for the mountains and beautiful weather not to mention all the beautiful hiking trails. This is my first year as a host and I can't wait to meet great people from all around the world! I enjoy visiting all the wonderful vintage and antique shops in the area and on my days off enjoy cooking and baking. Strolling to one of the area pubs with a neighbor for a glass of wine and live local music is of course a must. I look forward to hosting you!

Elisa’s place is so cozy and in an ideal location for exploring West Asheville. The decor throughout the apartment is also fun and charming. The pictures really don’t do it justice! If you’re looking to explore West Asheville by foot, book Elisa’s place—it’s perfect!

Cozy stay in West Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in West Asheville at this Hip Hangout!

The space is charming, retro, clean, and located in a cool neighborhood in Asheville. It took us 7 minutes to arrive to downtown by driving. It is also really easy to call an uber or lyft. Additionally, there are cute spots to get super good coffee and food right down the street by walking on Haywood. Elisa is kind and very easy to communicate with. We especially loved the games and movie collection, the eclectic decor, and feel of the space! Cute, comfortable, and cozy. Great place to come home to, whether coming from the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway or from Downtown.
