Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

30 NIGHT MINIMUM. This little house is a newly constructed green built home in West Asheville with a fenced-in back yard. It is quiet, it has off-street parking, and two of the most comfortable beds you will ever experience. The open floor plan and vaulted ceiling gives you plenty of room to relax and unwind. Hardwood floors and a grassy fenced back yard make this the perfect place for your pets to come and share Asheville with you. Furnishings are amazing and super comfortable. One of our guests dubbed it the Little Giant because it's bigger than it looks from the outside!

The neighborhood is quiet and within a short walk to Carrier Park, which features miles of walking trails, playgrounds for the kids, picnic tables, lawn bowling, the MellowDrome (a repurposed auto race track), a roller blade hockey rink, and of course the awesome French Broad River. Our favorite park in Asheville and largely undiscovered and underutilized.

The neighborhood is one of the most popular in Asheville. It was established in the 1920s and 30s, and has undergone a period of decline and rebirth. Many of the homes have been rebuilt and others have been torn down to make way for new ones. This one was stripped down to the floor joists and totally rebuilt using all new materials and green building techniques.

The back yard and side yard are fenced, so dogs will have a great place to play. The kitchen door opens out to the yard, so managing your dogs is easy. We do our best to make our properties as pet friendly as possible.

Michigan Avenue is narrow and many of the residents park on the street. There is room in the driveway to park two cars but please be aware that the driveway is on a fairly steep incline. If you have one car, you will pull up to the top and park on a fairly level spot. But if you have two cars, your second one will be on the slope so be aware. If you are uncomfortable with this prospect this may not be the best fit for you!

We hope you enjoy this home as much as we did when we were getting it ready. It was a lot of fun and we were reluctant to leave. We will be there any time there is a vacancy because we love the easy access to the park!

We specialize in property management services for short term rentals. We can also help you get started in vacation rentals so please feel free to contact us. Visit our web site at PeteKey dot com for more information.

If you are looking to make Asheville your home, this is a perfect home base for house hunting. We are a good resource if that's your plan, as we know the area and the market. So please let us know and we will help you any way we can.

Thanks and enjoy your stay in Asheville!

Reviewer Comments:

My wife and I stayed at the "Little Giant" for several months as we relocated to Asheville- what a find! Pete and Elisabeth were excellent communicators, and we have nothing but excellent things to say about our stay. It's walking distance to Haywood Road, the Walk, Owl Bakery, the Admiral, etc. Head the other way and there's two great parks, a rock gym, etc.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the Little Giant for several weeks in December and January while we were looking to buy a house. The house was in good order and the few issues we had were quickly addressed by Elisabeth and Pete. It has a great yard for dogs (we had two) and is a quick drive to the dog park at the French Broad River park, which we used nearly every day. Also very quick drive to all the West Asheville restaurants and coffee shops which we enjoyed frequently. Wifi was fast, cable TV was what we wanted and the kitchen was well equipped with pots, pans and the essentials. The broiler did not work and the first attempt to replace the coil did not succeed, but Pete was still planning to fix it when we left.

The Little Giant lives up to its name. We stayed for a few weeks and were very comfortable. Kitchen has everything you might need. Location is great - Carrier Park for walking the dogs, all of West Asheville for food and entertainment (BiscuitHead, the Hole, etc.).

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed Sunday, Nov 6 through Saturday, Nov 12 and we really enjoyed the home. The location was great - we were at most 10 minutes to the Biltmore and the Grove Park Inn, the downtown arts districts, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and numerous breweries. The home was very clean and in good shape, and our dogs really like the fenced yard. The wifi and TV both worked well. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, the bathroom came with plenty of nice fluffy towels, and the beds were made up with sheets and a comforter. Beds were a little soft and squeaky, and the toilet sometimes needed a second flush, but otherwise perfect. Other than the making the original reservation, I only contacted the rental management staff twice - once to verify payment, and once to let them know we were in the house, and both time they contacted me immediately. If we come down to Asheville again, we would definitely would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Reviewer Comments:

We came to Asheville to get a better sense of the community and determine if it was a city to which we would like to move. The location was ideal for us since it was near the West Asheville historic district and conveniently located to downtown. Pete and Elizabeth were very helpful and even loaned us 2 bikes! My suggestions would be for a more thorough vacuuming, availability of basic toiletries for showering and a firmer bed.
