About Kathy McGuinn

I live and work on the property as I am an RN and a raw vegan chef and have a raw vegan food business to assist others in having foods to heal their body, mind and spirit.
Kathy McGuinn purchased this House in 2003

VERY close to downtown and feels remote enough to have a nice quiet few days.
It is close to downtown but no view. Everything in pics is there but dated and not clean.
I’ve used VRBO without any problems but this property left me never wanting to use VRBO again. We got a very welcoming email right away. Kathy even asked if we preferred local wine or beer as an amenitity. We were excited thinking this place must really roll out the red carpet. We were told to arrive anytime after 3 pm but call about 15 mins ahead. We found the property sooner than we thought & called thinking we would just wait the 15 mins to be greeted but the email also gave directions to the suite on the property. It was not ready. Everything was in disarray. Stuff was everywhere and it looked like the room was being used for storage. The walkway thru the gate to the pavers by the house was muddy from recent rain/winter weather. We were befuddled but knew we were in the right place. I tried calling the owner again and Kathy answered this time stating they forgot we were coming. She said she would call the cleaners if we would give her a couple of hours to get it cleaned up and she would refund me $50.00. We went to downtown, which is a relatively short & easy drive or Uber ride away, & bummed around until the suite was ready. The owner had stated the disarray was from a boiler leak but our suite was not affected. Later she said it was in disarray because they had hosted people displaced by Hurricane Irma. My friend was very nervous about the situation saying she did not have a good feeling about everything. I called Kathy back & asked for our money back. She said VRBO does not require a refund & that the suite was ready & she had already refunded me $50 for our inconvenience & would provide both types of beer that we liked. We returned she walked me through the suite and showed me where things were. We tried to settle in. Despite having just been cleaned there were no real signs of a good cleaning. Crumbs and something sticky was on the table. The king bed had some kind of debris on it. The sheets were not well fitted and came off the bed during the night. My friend slept in the queen where she awoke to loud footfalls and noises from the main house. There is a cute electric fire place but no comfortable seating (2 hard chairs) Closet area had no door and beat up wire hangers. Door to the suite, we couldn’t figure out how to lock it. The bathroom sink hot water never got above luke warm. Didn’t attempt a shower. We left in the AM for a hotel & my credit card has yet to be credited $50 refund. If you are looking for relaxing comfort—Not it.
My 29 year old walked in and said, "I would live here." the owner is a joy and the home is beautiful. You will love your stay.
Very quaint! Kathy is great!
After a little trouble finding it in the dark, we were happy to open the door to such a cute place. We really appreciated finding a place for just one night so that we didn't have to drive back home so late. Kathy is really sweet and her place is clean and comfortable. We'll be back another time for more than one night!
Not so Luxurious
After watching the online video, it was nothing like it. There are so many issues, that I guess I should list some of the ones that were most important. It was a cute suite - but it was not clean. In fact, not sure when the last time it was truly clean. But it was almost like they forgot to come clean it before we showed up. It was mostly surface cleaning that it needed but it made me wonder if everything else was clean. The sheets on the king bed were not luxurious - they had holes in them. There were missing light bulbs that we had to ask for.....and then one of the lights in the separate bedroom still did not work - worried that it might be an electrical issue. They were renovating the suite next door the whole time we were there - up until 8 pm Saturday night. The sidewalk was blocked with construction items - in fact, I tripped over some electrical cords. After putting up with so much, the last straw was the construction that was going on Saturday night. We made the reservations several months before we go there - and had a couple of emails going back and forth - but nothing was ever said about the construction until we showed up. We couldn't even enjoy "the private patio" area - not so private with all the construction going on. The owner assured me that she would refund us $50 - not near enough for what we got - but I still have not seen that - nor have I heard back from her. I think I am being generous with the 2 stars. Very disappointed.
Elizabeth, You are right that the property was not up to par as it has been for the over 5 yrs! We have had it and 7 other 5 star rentals during this time. I apologize for your experience!
We rented out the units more than normal due to letting people stay free during the Irma displacements. That also caused us to not finish the remodel on the home. We have since replaced sheets,towels and "spring" cleaned the whole place! There is no one out where the patio is and it is back to the calm lovely place that it has been all of these years! I did not realize that the $50 refund did not go through!
I am sending a $100 on instead!
Pleasant, peaceful place near everywhere you want to visit in Asheville
Friendly, helpful owner who respects your privacy but provides everything you need to be comfortable. Cozy beds, cute decor, decently stocked kitchenette, delicious gourmet chocolate and craft beer greet you upon arriving at this wonderful property. Nice outdoor space and fancy shower as well. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
