Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 4, 900 Sqft, Deck View, Carport

If you are drawn, as we are, to the modern decor of hotels such as The Aloft or the Hotel Indigo in downtown Asheville, you may enjoy the mod sensibilities we applied in this space - but with a full kitchen and off-street, non-valet parking, if that's more your speed.

Features of this centrally located home include clean, open floor plan, with up-to-date kitchen and bathrooms. You will be close to everything Asheville has to offer, yet nestled in a secluded wooded neighborhood, 2 miles North of downtown. Enjoy our hanging chair swing as an extra relaxing spot on the private deck, with a treed mountain view toward the Grove Park area. It feels calm and relaxing, just like being in a treehouse, especially while chilling in the swing chair!

Accommodations include a queen Venezia bed (New Morning Gallery), and a second bedroom with two twin beds (with the option of a king converted upon request). All new memory foam mattresses and comfortable linens provided. Single car covered carport and one-level living space. In unit laundry included, with new appliances.

The well-appointed kitchen provides cookware, dishware, utensils, and linens to support a comfy stay, with multiple grocery stores within 1.5 miles (including Trader Joes, with two in under a mile). Great for savoring tasty leftovers from so many foodie locations around town, or for preparing to eat-in when so inspired. Kitchen has counter-height seating at the island/prep table.

The Mod "Treehouse" is required to be a monthly rental, i.e. each guest blocks a month minimum on our calendar. However, we can allow early check out to accommodate guest's traveling necessities. Contact Cindy for details and invoicing adjustments if your stay needs to flex for an early checkout duration of 7-29 days, if you just can't arrange to stay a full 30 days.

In addition, NC regulations allow for any stay longer than 90 days to not require State/County sales and occupancy tax - so if guests want to chill or telework a little longer, that is a 13% savings in taxes. Contact Cindy (owner) to arrange your visit details.

This quiet home is half of a side by side duplex, with private entrances and carports at each end of the building. Driveway is shared, and courtesy to not block access is appreciated.

About Cynthia Coker

We are Cindy and Lucinda, two NASA engineers, eleven years into our twelve year plan, transitioning to making Asheville our full-time home. Between us, we'll have a combined 70 years of service with NASA at Marshall Space Flight Center, supporting primarily scientific experiment/instrument and facility payloads from early SpaceLab days and the Shuttle Program, and the International Space Station Program.

Cynthia Coker purchased this villa in 2014

Why Cynthia Coker chose North Carolina

We have been spending several dozens of days a year in Asheville, since 2006. Our first home here was in West Asheville, an amazing part of town. Yet we are drawn to mid century modern architectural styles, and had noticed some of the homes in this neighborhood years ago. One finally came available that we could consider and update over time.

What makes this villa unique

We love the up-in-the-trees "treehouse" feel, and the close proximity to downtown, great food, and views from being uphill from Merrimon Avenue.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I came to Asheville to work on the Martin McDonagh movie 3 Billboards. I stayed here for about 2 months. I was very happy here. The privacy, the rain, the sounds of birds made this place a memorable home. Thanks Girls!



(and the Girls say - can't wait to see the movie when released! and thanks for the book note and the online review. Very kind.)

You'll want to stay here forever!

  • 5 of 5

The location, views, and decor are pure perfection! I loved my long-term stay in the Mod Treehouse and didn't want to leave. I spent countless hours on the deck overlooking the neighboring mountain, enjoying the sounds of nature and privacy surrounding me. This quiet, safe neighborhood in North Asheville is central to all the attractions yet offers a secluded feel like a retreat. The kitchen is well equipped for dining in, the beds are comfy and cozy, and the decor offers a soothing, zen-like atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and were happy to offer flexible dates to accommodate my travel schedule. I can't wait to come back to this sweet place!

Loved the Mod Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

The mod treehouse has everything for a wonderful trip to Asheville. We loved it! The location—high in the hills—offers a quiet oasis that is close to everything. Restaurants, take-out, groceries, and shopping are minutes away. The location is also convenient to downtown and West Asheville. The deck offers magnificent views, and a short walk up the hill yields a view of the entire Asheville skyline and surrounding mountains. Once inside, we were greeted with a stylish and modern décor that was also comfortable and inviting. The home was immaculate with new appliances, memory foam beds, and two full bathrooms—one for each bedroom. The owners obviously took great care in decorating the space and included special pieces made by Asheville artists and craftspeople. They were helpful and responsive when we needed anything. We will definitely stay in the mod treehouse again when we return to Asheville.

Owner's Response: Very kind - thanks for the thoughtful and thorough review, Jennifer! I'm late in saying so - it's easier to see this on a laptop, I'm learning - not so visible to owners/managers on the phone app. Thanks much! Cindy (owner)

Private and serene.

Loved it.

Stay here, especially if you are in Asheville for a long visit.

It's near the amazing farmers market- my favorite.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review last summer, Cydney. I've taken over managing our place, after Tom's excellent help, and am digging in and finding more parts of the homeaway software on my laptop that wasn't readily apparent in the phone app. Appreciate your kindness and am glad you had a good and productive visit! thanks, Cindy (owner)

A hideaway with a view but close to everything

  • 4 of 5

So we have been to Asheville since 1993 and since 2001 every year. We have done B&B's and hotels and motels but VRBO has been the best. This was a brand new 2 bedroom right off Marrimon and close to downtown and Grove Park Inn and Bear Lake( Great Walk) lots of good Breakfast And Lunch Places nearby. Within 10 minutes you are are in downtown with wonderful restaurants and art galleries. Very basic comfortable and clean. Washer dryer a plus.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Sky! We've taken your suggestion and added a few games, AND just turned on cable TV (in addition to the cable internet for Smart-TV streaming subscriptions). We also swapped out the mod egg chair for a pair of comfy swivel/rocker easy chairs. Appreciate the kind words and first review! --- Cindy

Walk to UNCA farmers market on Saturday mornings for coffee and fresh baked goods, and produce Spring thru Fall. Or walk to a movie and pizza at Avl Pizza and Brewing, or casual upscale neighborhood dining at Avenue M or Ambrosia Bistro. There's plenty to relax and enjoy in N Avl when downtown is crowded. Easy access to four grocery stores within 1.5 miles, including Trader Joes, Fresh Market, Ingles, and Harris Teeter.

We only rent our home once every thirty days, in that each rental blocks a 30 day period to comply with local regulations. Monthly rental is preferred (and common - folks like to stay with us for 1-6months at a time generally). Any stay under 90 days requires payment of NC and Buncombe County Sales and Occupancy taxes, so there is a nice tax savings if you are able to stay 90 days. We have had a number of teleworking professionals stay with us for that duration.

In addition, we are willing to discuss accommodating early checkout options for between seven and 29 days, if that is helpful to our guests. To negotiate for any reasonable schedule accommodation and corresponding rate differences, text Cindy at 256-679-1681 and we can discuss what options are available. If we block a month for a guest who is only able to stay for seven days before a pre-arranged early checkout, the average daily rate will be higher than if they can stay for the entire blocked month, however a reasonable accommodation typically is doable.

Manager's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
