About Angie

Jamie and Angie Shryock - We live in Denver, NC with our two daughters. We have considered Asheville our home away from home for over 15 years and feel very fortunate to own a little piece of Asheville!

Angie purchased this Condo in 2014

Why Angie chose Downtown Asheville Art District

This loft is right in the heart of downtown and is just steps away from shopping, restaurants, art galleries, craft breweries and night life. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

                                                      Wonderful place to stay in Downtown Asheville!

                                                      Susan B.

                                                      This condo is in a wonderful location and pictures cannot fully reflect the uniqueness and charm of the place. Owners have excellent and easy to follow instructions about every aspect of staying at this location as well as helpful information about your stay in Asheville. The condo is well-appointed with anything you might need. I highly recommend this location for your stay in Asheville.

                                                      Cozy spot in a convenient location

                                                      Tiffany F.Winter Park, Florida

                                                      We were quite comfortable in this carefully and thoughtfully appointee condo. The gas fireplace was welcome on the cold days. The condo is within very close walking distance to all the wonderful restaurants in the city and it’s quick and easy to get on the highway for excursions.

                                                      Tidy, well equipped loft located in heart of Asheville.

                                                      Thomas L.

                                                      Our family of four (parents and two college-aged daughters) stayed the week between Christmas and New Year for our first visit to Asheville and we had a wonderful time. The loft was clean, nicely decorated and very well equipped. The apartment has all the state-of-the-art conveniences along with clear instructions and guidance . The owner also provided lots of helpful guidance to address about every local need. The location was an ideal hub for exploring Asheville. Many thanks to the owners for enabling a wonderful family vacation.

                                                      Great location

                                                      Robert T.

                                                      The loft was very nice! Comfortable and well equipped.

                                                      A great stay

                                                      Linda P.

                                                      Highly recommend

                                                      Perfect 10

                                                      Jason O.Chapin, SC

                                                      My wife and I have stayed at a lot of VRBO rentals in the Asheville area and beyond. This unit is probably the nicest and most convenient unit that we have ever stayed in. Angie does a wonderful job communicating with prospective renters and even went above and beyond to recommend area restaurants and breweries that we might enjoy. The unit, itself, had everything we needed and more and was decorated beautifully. Also, had creature conveniences that we needed such as dishwasher and washing machine pods and saran wrap for putting on leftovers. The one negative and it really wasn't an inconvenience was the smell of the Lobster Trap restaurant downstairs in the hallway up to the unit. Fish smell every night! But, do not let this dissuade you from staying here. Even the parking was convenient and that's saying a lot if you have ever been to Asheville where parking is non-existent many times. Thanks for sharing your unit with us! We had a wonderful time!!!
