About Stephanie Joy Johnson

I am Stephanie Joy Johnson. My passion is creating beauty in real estate….remodeling and restoring homes, landscape design, interior home décor and, best of all, making guests feel pampered when they stay at my personally owned luxury vacation homes in the gorgeous mountains of Western North Carolina. I devote myself full-time to taking care of my homes & guests. YOU are my full-time business! My business is called Asheville Vacation Homes.

I began this business in 2004 and delight in finding beautiful locations and gorgeous homes for vacation rental settings. I am always searching for interesting furnishings (shopping!) to add to the delightful decor for my guests.

During your stay, you also might meet my awesome property manager and “fix-it man,” David. He can take care of any maintenance or property issues should they arise. He and I are both available 7-days-a-week to make sure your stay is the best ever!

Email me for my web address to see all 10 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes.

INDULGE! You deserve to be spoiled at my vacation home! I am a caring local owner and answer all inquiries personally.

Stephanie Joy Johnson purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie Joy Johnson chose Hendersonville

I am passionate about living in these awesome Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and adore sharing my vacation rental homes with guests who come to experience our area’s mountains & towns. I take exquisite care of my properties and am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure each home is exceptionally clean, meticulously well-maintained and the hot tub sparkling with fresh water.

I have lived in Asheville, North Carolina for many years and find great joy in discovering more and more reasons why this is the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE! Asheville is consistently in the “Top 10 Places To Live” according to almost any criterion published! It’s a diverse multi-cultural blend of mountain folk and cosmopolitan society set in a dramatically beautiful mountain setting. It is my heart-felt desire to provide gorgeous welcoming homes in spectacular settings and to share this town with you!

What makes this house unique

With all the special touches, I promise you that my vacation rental homes will feel as though you are staying at a friend’s warm inviting home rather than a 'vacation rental house.' You'll appreciate the tasteful decor and thoughtful care my homes reflect. Each home has been lovingly remodeled, elegantly furnished, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully accessorized with special amenities to pamper you including massage chairs, hot tubs, high speed wireless Internet, king beds with sumptuous bedding, HDTV’s & DVD's, movie libraries, quality well-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, central heat & air conditioning, washers & dryers and much more!

Unique to my homes are all the amenities offered for babies and children. There are cribs, pack-n-plays, strollers, high chairs, baby bath tubs, stuffed animals & blankies. Older children love to play on the outdoor playgrounds with forts, slides, swings, climbing walls, etc. plus games, books, toys, kids DVD movies and more. Kids of all ages love to roast marshmallow at the firepits.

My homes are easily accessed, right in-town, close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. No winding mountain roads to get lost in or long drives to town. The homes are in peaceful, lush vacation spots where you can relax and feel at home.

Rather than dealing with a third party management company with limited business hours & knowledge of a home, you can deal directly with me, the owner. I am available to you 7 days-a-week, anytime between 9 AM and 7 PM and after hours for emergencies. I know my properties intimately because I have personally had them restored, remodeled, furnished and equipped. YOU are my full time business! Because I live locally, I am available whenever you call.

Guestbook comments from the manager

With 5 small children and 7 adults, we needed a place with child-friendly activities, adult luxuries, and space! This house has it all. Very flexible living/sleeping spaces allowed our 3 oldest grandchildren and their parents to have the lower level suite with large toy & game areas, bunk beds, and a queen bedroom, along with large screen TV media room where the adults could watch movies or sports with good audio/visual equipment. The kitchen, laundry and bath here were very useful too. Upstairs the couple with small baby had the Serenity master suite, with little noise and maximum privacy; their 2 year old loved the Princess Room. Every need for infants/small children was met as to beds, stroller, chairs, and so forth. Other adults had the queen bedroom and Lake master suite end of the house, with plenty of room and 2 more baths. Outdoor and indoor equipment for children was available & in prime condition. The main level kitchen and eating area were large, well lighted, and accomodated us all in comfort, and the large deck and grilling area overlooked the back yard with its playground equipment, hammock, and various tables and chairs for picnicking or reading. The children caught minnows and frogs in the pond and adults watched the birds and wildlife from the deck or yard. The hot tub on the lower deck was a treat for all.



An early plumbing issue caused by a child flushing a toy down the toilet was responded to and addressed immediately even though it was late at night. The house location in Hendersonville is near many beautiful trails, waterfalls, and historic sites, not to mention Asheville and the Biltmore House. We visited several, and enjoyed the local fireworks display on Independence Day with only a short trip to the wonderfully diverse downtown area. There are good restaurants, nearby grocery shopping, a childrens museum, and many benefits of Asheville with less traffic. We would recommend this house especially for large families with younger children.

Lovely, homey place to have family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 7 children ages 5-17 recently stayed at White Stone Manor. We found the home very clean, well equipped kitchens, parking for 4 cars, big property. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings, also watching the koi in the pond. The younger grandchildren loved the bunk room and play equipment outside. It was a relaxing place to stay. Many thanks, Stephanie!

Great Stay! Plenty of Room for the Whole Family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 kids) had plenty of room (and bathrooms) in this home! The kitchen was well stocked and our grandchildren loved the bunk beds and playroom area downstairs in the basement and ran to the awesome playground equipment as soon as we arrived! We were amazed that there was another entire apartment downstairs - complete with living and dining rooms, laundry, bathroom, bedroom, bunks and playroom. The home was clean, comfortable with plenty of room for the entire family and only a quick drive to the Biltmore! We recommend!

Great location and layout

  • 5 of 5

Property was well kept and the starter household supplies were enough to get 12 folks through 4.days. Location was great for enjoying the outdoor activities in the region, yet close enough to the Hendersonville downtown to give easy access to restaurants. All in all we had zero complaints among our party.

Outstanding property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the house and found it to be well maintained and very comfortable for a large group. There were 11 of us and we never felt cramped. Everything you need for a enjoyable stay is there for you. The kids loved the yard, feeding the fish and making smores in the fire pit. I would highly recommend staying there.

Beautiful Home for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was so lovely and clean! We were just about 20 minutes from Asheville so we could enjoy both Hendersonville and Asheville. We had 12 people and the house had room and sleeping for all. Stephanie Joy Johnson gave great customer service. We hope to rent from her again. I feel lucky to have been in her property.

Excellent property - best we have ever rented

  • 5 of 5

This trip was the second time we have stayed at the White Stone Manor. This property is perfect - large grassed area for dogs and children, lovely pond, wonderful play set. House is furnished with every thing you can possibly need and stuff you did not even know you needed. Appliances have been updated since our 2014 stay - latest models. Comfortable and cosy. Highly recommend for family groups. You cannot find a better place in the area.
