About Celeste Gray

I am sole owner and operator of Asheville Stay, offering personal contact; no dealing with a third-party manager. Having lived in Asheville for 21 years, and renting to guests for 15+ years, sharing tips about places to dine and things to do is a natural joy. I've been designing and developing properties for more than a decade, and hosting guests for as long. Creating spaces for guests to enjoy is a true labor of love! I also enjoy travel, and have integrated some architectural pieces I've gathered along the journey into some of my rentals.

I'm so delighted to accommodate you, your family, and friends!

Why Celeste Gray chose Downtown

Unique historic property with modern amenities especially designed to delight you!

Guests booking this listing will have free access to the Asheville YMCA (within walking distance) which includes hot tub/sauna/steam room, 2 indoor pools, raquetball/basketball courts; cycling and group exercise studios.

What makes this townhome unique

Right in the centre of downtown, this loft is a very easy walk to all restaurants, breweries, shopping and entertainment. Situated on two very quiet streets keeps downtown noises to a minimal. It's located practically a stone's throw away from the US Cellular Civic Center, and Moog Foundation. A short walk to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods Market. This property has unique charm in structure and décor.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very cool and modern loft! We really enjoyed the neighborhood and liked the fact that everything is so close within walking distance. Celeste was super easy to deal with and very accommodating. Would definitely work with her again in the future to accommodate our stay in Asheville. And we love Chicken Alley!

Amazing location and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of close to 18 guys for a bachelor party. Celeste was amazing to work with us helping us get another condo and working this around to help manage a couple more guys. We ended up renting 3 condos. All the condos were in great condition and worked perfectly! The condos were right downtown and walking distance to everything.

If you are going to be in Asheville I definitely recommend going with Celeste. She will not let you down for sure.

Adorable rentals in the heart of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We rented 3 units for a large family group. The places are adorable and as imagined based on the photos.

Added pluses were working wifi in all units and the bluetooth speaker in one. The larger unit had a large area downstairs with lots of beds and a large sitting area upstairs. This was ideal as the main hangout for our group. The kids loved the downstairs for their huge slumber party and the upstairs had ample room for all of our party to hang out and play games.

The door code locks were awesome and way better than trying to keep track of a key with a party our size.

The location can't be beat! We walked to food, drink, cigars, music, bookstores, basically much of what Asheville has to offer.

Saving the best for last, Celeste is a class act, and she and Kayla were both kind and accommodating, and followed through 100%. We will be back! And hopefully meet Celeste next time.

Perfect Asheville Experience

  • 5 of 5

Great location and space. Celeste and Kayla was very responsive and clear. I look forward to returning in the future. Close to Great Dining and Brewery/Bars and a short walk to the grey line trolley stop which is a must do if you have never toured Asheville.

Great location & wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

The space was just as described and very comfortable for the 7 in our group. This is the perfect location for visiting downtown Asheville as it is not to far to walk anywhere. Celeste was great to work with and I would recommend renting from her.
