About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to Highlands, North Carolina! If you're looking for a VRBO that is walking distance to most everything, then look no further. Lose yourself in the luxury and sophistication that Highlands has long been known for as a guest at our apartment.

Light and bright, the open concept creates a cozy yet spacious experience where you can relax or entertain in a modern meets rustic setting. Features include a fully equipped kitchen with gas range and granite counter tops, office nook for a working vacation, oak floors in the living area, laundry room with iron/ironing board, two porches and private parking for two vehicles.

A fun fact; the living area was once the dining hall of an old estate home situated above Founders Park. The pulley windows and coffered ceilings bring in the old Highlands character that is now hard to find. The apartment is on the second floor of a two story building, located above our Green Mountain Builders office.

As transplants to the area, we understand how easy it is to fall in love with Highlands and the surrounding area. As a real estate broker and builder, we are happy to help should you decide it's time for your own slice of paradise.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding our rental, things to do in Highlands or about the area in general!

About Mary Abranyi

We moved to the area in 2001 and have since become established in both the Highlands and Cashiers communities professionally as a Realtor (Mary) and a builder (Steve). Originally from Florida, it was easy to acclimate to the cooler summer temperatures and appreciate the fall colors. We have two school aged children, three golden retrievers and two cats. In addition to real estate and building, we also have a yoga, karate and massage studio with boutique in Cashiers.

Mary Abranyi purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mary Abranyi chose Highlands

We purchased this property in 2007 when we were looking for office space for our businesses. The fact that there was an apartment upstairs was an absolute bonus. After some renovations, we initially rented the apartment out on a long-term basis for the first several years but decided to make the switch to vacation rentals and have been glad we did so. It's been a great place for family, friends and clients to stay when it's not rented.

What makes this apartment unique

The homey feel and close proximity to Main Street are two of our favorite/unique benefits.

Great property and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this home for 3 nights and it was wonderful. The home is very nicely decorated, clean and fully stocked with everything you need. The best part is its location - walking distance to all the amazing downtown Highlands restaurants and shops. The owners are very responsive and helpful. We highly recommend!

Nearest Airport
59 Miles
Car: recommended

Conveniently located within walking distance to much of downtown Highlands, we recommend parking your vehicle and taking out on foot for a more personal perspective of our quaint mountain town. You can take a nice hike on the Green Way Trail located just one block from the apartment, take in a show at one of the two theaters, dine at any of the many acclaimed restaurants or hit the stores to do some serious shopping!
