Nice house, but owner is difficult to work with

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house, however, a few things to think about before renting:

1. Are you wanting to deal with a difficult owner?

2. How close do you want to be to the Biltmore/Town of Asheville?

When renting this house over Memorial Day weekend for a wedding at the Biltmore we encountered a few unforeseen issues. First, the owner was very difficult and somewhat rude from the beginning. She also was not very responsive or diligent in her review of the extensive contract you must sign before renting. She made a lot of mistakes in the details, such as payment amounts, our names, and the dates, and she also did not have the correct payment amounts when actually billing me through the online website "Intuit". Most importantly, we were barely in the home and we received a message after checking out that she wished we would have treated the home they shared with us with more respect. Ultimately she withheld an extra amount from deposit due to reasons that seemed incredibly petty, such as "sticky floors". Keep in mind there was already a large cleaning fee paid.

The other issue I would consider is just how close to Asheville and the Biltmore do you want to be? We were required to be at the Biltmore quite a bit for the wedding and it took a lot longer than we were expecting because of the windy roads, the hills, and the 30 minute drive it took to get from the actual gates of the Biltmore to the House. If you have plans to be somewhere, I highly suggest you factor in more time than you were originally thinking.

NOTE: The facilities of the Cliffs can only be used by members. Which is not a deterrent, but something to consider if you are wanting to play golf or tennis, etc. The Omni was a great option if you're interested in these types of activities.

Had we not had such a difficult time with the owner, I think our groups overall experience would have been MUCH better! The house has plenty of great qualities and a lot of space to hold large groups, but may not be all that worth it. Best of luck in your search and enjoy the beautiful town of Asheville!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely home for a family gathering, with 7 adults and 1 teenager. The location is ideal-- about a 20 minute ride to Asheville and 10 minutes to the NC Arboretum. There is a supermarket and Biltmore Square (shops and restaurants) nearby.

This home is beautifully and comfortably decorated, clean and extremely well-appointed. The bedrooms are very spacious(particularly the upstairs master) with comfortable beds. Five of the six bedrooms have private bathrooms.

The property is in a gated, golf community among other lovely homes. The HOA requires one of the renters to attend a meeting with a rep from the sales office. While a minor annoyance, the meeting was brief, painless and actually informative.

We opted to eat most of our meals in the house and the kitchen is efficiently designed with high-end appliances and so very well-stocked.

We spent an entire day at the Biltmore Estate (15 minutes away). Despite the steep price of admission, it is not to be missed! Discounted, advance-purchase tickets are available online.

As with any property, we had a few minor complaints. The sole TV in the home, located in the living room was difficult to operate, despite the printed instructions. The operation of the stereo system completely baffled 7 adults. The only outdoor area had limited seating for such a large home and the shrubbery (which I imagine was to provide privacy) was a bit overgrown and obstructed the gorgeous view. We were disappointed that we did not have access to a community pool, fitness center. Again, these were minor things.

All in all, we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this property!

Great Place for a Group Trip

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a ladies weekend and were very pleased. The kitchen/great room/patio provide a wonderful open space to accommodate socializing for a large group. The beds were very comfortable and there was a rooming option to suit everyone. The house was also in wonderful, new condition and the furniture is all in nice shape. In addition, the Cliffs development is gorgeous and felt very secure. The drive to the heart of Asheville only took about 15 minutes and was not an issue. I was nervous about booking a space unseen for a large group, but everyone was happy and comfortable!

Only complaints were the slight buzz in the great room area and the inability to silence the back door alarm.

Would recommend to any family or group.

Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome home in a beautiful setting and golf/resort community. There were eight of us travelling here for a mother/daughter reunion weekend. Home was spectacular and the beds extremely comfortable. We cooked in two nights in the fabulous kitchen (which had top end appliances) and spent two full days walking and eating in Asheville, and another day hiking up in the mountains. Never even turned on the TV. Huge round table that was great for playing cards and eating. Cozy furniture surrounding the fireplace for fireside chats. This home is close to everything. Major impressed with the bathrooms. Love the décor. Thanks to the owners for maintaining such a great property. We will definitely be back again!

Happy Mom!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this beautiful home for surprise birthday for mom. It is stunning and worked well for a houseful of adults, being extremely well appointed and equipped. You will not find anything lacking in the kitchen. I would actually give this property 4-1/2 stars because of a few very minor points. 1-There are no instructions on how to get the stereo to play correctly. We only had sound out of one speaker, and there was a high pitched noise we could not get off. 2-There is only one television in the entire house. While the guys wanted to watch the hockey game, there was no place for the girls to watch their chic flick. 3-The tour of the property is annoying. All being said, I will definitely go back. All of us loved it.
