Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I came into Asheville and stayed at this wonderfully secluded place close to everything. Our host was super kind. The hot tub was excellent! The bed is super comfortable! Our host stayed out of our way and we enjoyed everything Asheville had to offer. The Hole and Sunny Point Cafe are musts while there. Wonderful town and I must say this place is way better than any hotel. Be open minded and enjoy. Thank you Michael for opening up your doors to us! We will be staying here again In March of 2017 for the Biltmore Marathon again I promise you!

The Perfect Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay in the Wellness Sanctuary, and it will most likely not be my last. This space is romantic and cozy, perfect for any couple looking for a relaxing and fun weekend getaway. The location is great if you would like to be close to downtown, but also just far enough away to get that Asheville mountain feel. I would say the only thing that would keep me from staying for an extended amount of time would be the lack of a full kitchen. But since our stay was only a couple of days, the amenities provided were perfect for us! Thank you for another wonderful trip. Namaste

False advertismemt. Not worth the cost

  • 1 of 5

As soon as we pulled up within 2 minutes, we were harassed by an aggressive neighbor (White man), talking about robberies in the neighborhood. He didn't give us any time to call the owner before he did. I didn't rent from his neighbors so therefore we don't have to explain our presence to anyone. This is racial profiling (we are African Anerican) and very rude to incoming guest. The owner forgot we were coming which is very unprofessional. This was supposed to be a romantic cabin for our honeymoon but it was a house. The room was smelly, very dusty and had cobwebs everywhere. There were spiders in every corner and ants everywhere (even on the bed). The floor was uneven throughout the room with random hard dips. The worst part was the lack of privacy. The owner lives directly above you. You can hear him walking over your head. Also, he used sheer white curtains for the windows (you can see directly in). The house is not well kept. I choose this lodging because of the chapel (now closed without notice) and the waterfalls and gardens. I thought they would be great for wedding photos but they were rusted, black and dirty. He used them as a selling perk but didn't maintain them. Another selling perk was the hot tub. However, this hot tub was sketchy. I smelled the chlorine but couldn't understand the little bubbles and slimy feel. We got in the first night and didn't return. I was very dissapointed with my stay and the pictures he displays are outdated. I spent my whole honeymoon sniffing, sneezing and coughing because it was so dusty. Also, I had to wear socks because the floor was dirty. We had to take showers one by one with the door open because of the spiders in the corners and how small the shower was. We could barely enjoy our honeymoon the way we wanted due to the lack of privacy. This room completely ruined my honeymoon experience. It was definitely not worth the price. I could have chosen a hotel name brand with better quality for less money. I decided to pay more for privacy and better amenities which I didn't get at all with this property. I don't like to mess with people funds but my goal is to make sure people don't get tricked and have the same experience as us. The owner was nice enough but didnt ensure a quality stay. We were charged a cleaning fee when booking but it didn't seem like the room was clean when we arrived. I took plenty of pictures. Hopefully, they will assist with a full refund. I wish I could redo my honeymoon.

Owner's Response: I read this review in shock and couldn't believe what I was reading.The only truth that I read was that I left the door to the rental locked but remedied it thanks to my neighbor helping these two persons.I immediately went back to the house and apologized and was met within indifference and rudeness by one of the guest.Everything else written here is really someone who is angry and mad.I clean the rooms up and doit all.We charge a very fair price and included the cleaning fee into it.Good luck finding any hotel for less that $300 around here.To be honest we have been on vrbo for three years now andour reviews are mostly five star and I think rightfully so.I personally work hard to make sure our place is great for each group coming here..The floor are mopped,the shower could easily accommodate two persons and the room was very clean.I am sorry but I don't buy it nor do my other reviews suggest this.You have a right to express yourself but so do I.We have almost 300 nights a year booked and I have never so much bs written about our place.It is totally private and we make sure our guest have total privacy.Our pictures are not outdated and what you see is what you get.....Actually people who stay here tell us our place is better in person than the pictures.It is spring time in asheville and alot of pollen in the air,trees,flowers blooming and just maybe you have allergies but sure you are an angry person and can find or make up something about dust and whatever.I think while you are pointing the finger at us you might see three fingers pointing back to yourself.I am not giving back a refund and don't appreciate your hustling me to think I would.If I felt you were right in your assessment I would not have a problem with it...........I don't appreciate you saying false advertising or not worth the price......That is your opinion and from my perspective a total false one.

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend here. It's very quiet, secluded, and peaceful. Yet, it's close to everything! Just minutes from excellent dining and downtown. The room is far better and less expensive than area hotels. Plus, there's a private porch with hot tub and a kitchenette. The hosts were very helpful and kind. We will definitely return.

Great and peaceful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time staying at this property. Very private and relaxed. Location was away from hustle and bustle but still very close to Biltmore Village, River Arts district, and downtown. We also loved the nearby park and Edna's Coffee Shop. When we return to Asheville, we will stay here again.

So peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved the location of this property, it is near so many great restaurants. The bed is so comfortable, the shower is beautiful and the neighborhood is super friendly. This is my first time traveling with my two dogs and my fiancé and I were nervous about bringing them, but it turned out perfect and they felt very at home. The area feels very private and tranquil and we will 100 percent be coming back!
