Mountain Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Whiteside Villa is situated on top of Whiteside Mountain with breathtaking views from the extensive deck as well as the large windows throughout the home. Every detail is addressed from the gorgeous spa like bathrooms to the well equipped kitchen. We found the home to be perfectly clean and beautifully maintained. A large stainless gas grill is conveniently situated outside. A huge flat screen television surrounded by comfortable chairs, a game table and rock gas fire place are part of a huge den with magnificent views. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and lovely linens. There is a full size washer and dryer downstairs. Outside, there is easy access by foot to the Whiteside Mountain hiking trail. The home is minutes away from both Highlands and Cashiers by car. We have just completed our second stay at Whiteside Villa and have already booked it again for 2018. It is not to be missed if you are looking for a relaxing mountain retreat with all of the comforts of home.

Always Delivers

  • 5 of 5

After more than 15 years of staying here, I'm still amazed, that with all the updates and upgrades, the house never loses the mountain charm that drew me to it all those years ago.

My favorite new addition is the expanded deck off the master bedroom. The entire deck grows and evolves each year and the new addition fits right in. What little job related work I did over my two weeks there, was done from the outside deck (still connected to the house wifi).

The elevation at the house is remarkable. On an average summer day, the temp. in Atlanta is 92, Highlands 76, Whiteside 68. It always seems to be at least 10 degrees cooler at the house than in town. Having left 98 degree weather in Mississippi, a 30 degree difference is remarkable.

Anne DeVille takes such good care of her guest and is attentive in every way imaginable. We consider her our NC extended family member. I've already secured my annual two weeks for next year and I can't wait to see what Anne adds to to make this experience even better.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Amazing views and so close to the trails at Whiteside Mountain. It was great to be able to hike right from the property! Anne DeVille is awesome! So helpful & such a gracious host. She was there to answer any question and give recommendations on food, sights, of the most responsive owners I've dealt with on VRBO. Great proximity to both downtown Highlands and Cashiers. The Ugly Dog Pub is a favorite...there is a location in both towns. The property is very cozy and inviting with all of the amenities. The decks are expansive and have seating galore. Relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the view. We liked seeing and hearing the birds every morning while drinking our coffee. The showers are quite unique. You can take a bath/shower while gazing at the mountains through the mirrored glass walls. The beds are very comfortable too! An extremely private and quiet location. The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house brings the outdoors inside.....a truly special home!

Undeniably Sublime!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! This home is almost too perfect. It has every view we could want. It has every amenity on our wishlist. It has bathrooms that aren’t only gorgeous but that surpass mere functionality. The Tempurpedic beds combined with the silence and absolute darkness provide the best sleep we’ve ever experienced. The kitchen has every appliance, pot, pan, dish, and utensil we could ever use to make our numerous and various recipes. We’ve never been so overwhelmed by options in a rental house. And the decks!!! OMG the decks!! There is one for every mood. Anne makes the arrival process effortless. Anne not only provided us with all of the information about the house we could possibly need prior to our arrival, she answered all of our silly questions quickly and graciously during our stay – she is the most entertaining and truly inspirational hostess we’ve ever had. The pictures on the website do not convey the magnitude of the views from ALL of the rooms. They don’t convey how quickly you feel at home after you’ve unpacked. This house hugs you the moment you arrive. Others have mentioned they don’t want to leave. That’s an understatement. This house is like a friendly vortex that immediately sucks you in and overwhelms you with comfort and ease and beauty and nature. The hiking trail that’s right outside of the house is perfect for our daily exercise (and there’s always the treadmill with the view and TV if you don’t want to hike), and the decks offer numerous dining options. We only left the house to replenish groceries!! We are already counting the days until we can return next year. This isn’t a rental house - it’s a home!!!

If you are looking for a place to escape from the daily chaos, Whiteside Villa is that place. We’ve stayed at numerous vacation homes, and no house has ever been this serene. Even though Highlands and Cashiers are fewer than 10 minutes away, we were shrouded in nature and privacy. We were on the waiting list, and it was worth the wait!! Everything other people have said is true. The house is amazing, the views are incredible, and Anne is unbelievably kind and attentive. But the house is greater than the sum total of its parts. It’s obvious how much love has gone into the house and fills this house. It’s very easy for us to spot the difference between rental houses that are ignored and just ‘good enough’ for renters, and rental houses that are meticulously maintained and possess all of the hallmarks of exceeding renter expectations. We found our vacation bliss with Whiteside Villa, and we feel very blessed. Highly recommended – don’t wait to get on the waiting list!!

Nature's Peace at Whiteside Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in rental houses in Highlands for 27 years and have never experienced anything that comes close to Whiteside Villa. The previous review by Terri S. gives a great depiction. The house is long (somewhat ranch style) and is brilliantly sited to take advantages of the views, natural light and breezes. Every room has a panoramic view of the mountains. Opening the doors and windows, the East and West fragrant breezes flow gently through the house and create natural air conditioning. Interaction with Anne couldn't be nicer. She is a very caring person who is devoted to ensuring her guests have nothing short of a perfect stay. She has thought of everything you may need and the home is wonderfully appointed with ample supplies of high quality bedding, pillows, towels, and comfortable furniture and beds. It is very much a home, as opposed to a "rental property" void of anything on the walls and skimpy supplies. With Whiteside Trail close by and such a wonderful home to enjoy, we rarely leave while we are here. We cook and dine al fresco and relax. We have enjoyed experiencing views of both the sunrise and the sunset. If you are a "sunrise person," look to the West to see the moonset. One recent morning when it was nearly a full moon, my jaw dropped when I saw the moon glowing bright orange! Birders take note: Peregrine Falcons can be seen up here. If you are fortunate enough to find an open week, we highly recommend you book Whiteside Villa. It will be the greatest vacation decision you'll make; you will leave feeling fully restored!
