About Sheila McElhaney
We moved to Asheville from Santa Barbara, California in 2005 with our three kids. Our kids GREW UP (who knew?) and we purchased this really cool property on an acre here in south Asheville. We love it here because even though there is 4+ acres of trees, creek, ( and bunnies, foxes, deer and every once in a while a bear) we are 2 minutes from shopping and restaurants and super centrally located. We've always loved hosting guests and meeting new friends. Brennen is a landscape painter and Sheila loves to read, sit in the hammock and pursue creating the world's most perfect lawn. We live on site with our jack russell/beagle and look forward to meeting you in person!
Sheila McElhaney purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Sheila McElhaney chose Arden
Centrally located, yet private, Winterhawk Vacation Rentals are nestled on 4+ acres in south Asheville. This 3300+ open floorplan end unit townhome is located at the end of our private road. Our 4 townhomes (2 AirBnBs, 1 longterm rental and 1 owner occupied unit) are the only ones located on our private drive. The 4+ acres are peaceful and full of wildlife.
What makes this Townhome unique
The Asheville area has many beautiful vacation rental options, however, many are corporate run. We live in one of the other 3 townhomes on-site and are able to provide exceptional service and attention to detail that a corporation cannot. Ever go to a vacation rental and feel like you need to bring your own kitchen knives? We stock this home as though our good friends were coming to stay. We adhere to a "leave the whole box" philosophy. Rather than providing two trash bags, we leave the whole box. It's the little things that make all the difference: kitchen basics like soaps, cooking oils, spices, fruits and snacks. Laundry basics like detergent, fabric softener, stain spray, and ironing spray. Travel basics: sewing kits, first aid kits, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrushes, floss, razors, feminine products, makeup remover wipes, advil, pepto, benedryl, lip balm and more. We stocked this house with the things we would want when we go on vacation. We've found that, without exception, our guests have returned the courtesy; using what they need and leaving what they don't. Kinda restores your faith in humanity, right? :)
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great place and wonderful hosts. Sheila and Brennan went above and beyond. They thought of everything and made us feel very welcome. The property was conveniently located between downtown and outdoor activities. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Sheila and Brennon are incredible hosts! We were late arriving and they we still waiting to meet us to show us around the property... and there was a lot to show. The condo was incredible, and I don’t mean just clean. They have taken the time to make sure any and everything you need is available. The game room was awesome!!! Darts, poker set! Ping pong and fuse-ball were available for us and the outlets in the room already had phones charging cords in them so you can get a charge while playing. The furniture was amazing, beds were comfortable and the kitchen was appointed impeccably.
We will be going back to the Asheville area to explore more of the great attractions and will only go when this property is available for rental!
We were also mesmerized by Brennons artistic talent. His painting are amazing.
Huge thank you to Sheila and Brennon. They set the bar for all VRBO owners to strive for! We really felt like family!
Great place and host was outstanding
Sheila was our host and did a great job welcoming us and answering any questions we had. The location is 15-20 min from downtown Ashville and an easy Uber if you're visiting the local breweries...
Great for groups!
This is an amazing house if you have a large group and an amazing host that makes your stay seamless. Thanks for everything!
Clean and organized!
Sheila is an awesome host. The house was stocked with everything you could think about needing! Clean, organized and cozy are three words to describe the condo! This is a place I would stay again and recommend to anyone traveling to the Asheville area.
Everything you could possibly need!
We had 6 couples and two babies with us and this layout was great! We had plenty of room. Sheila and Brennan were so accommodating they had snacks in the kitchen with seriously everything we could need. The house has nice towels, sheets, comfy beds and a fully stocked kitchen. We brought our own crockpot but it turned out we didn’t need one because they even have that!! It’s truly a great house and great people to work with.
