Perfect spot close to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a weekend here with friends and we all loved it. It was super close to downtown...literally only 5 minutes away by car. Ginee was a pleasure to work with. Any questions or concerns I had she addressed them. The house was historic yet modern. The house was wonderful. If you want to be close to downtown this is the place to stay. The most reasonable rates around. Thank you for everything, we will be back again!

Not again

  • 2 of 5

Would not recommend this property. “Up and coming” neighborhood not there. Booked this property expecting much more of not only the neighborhood but River Arts District. Very disappointed. Although great effort has been made to revitalize this old home, I would not recommend staying with better options throughout the city. The house was very clean, however you could not roll over in bes at night or go to the bathroom without waking people in other rooms due to squeaking beds and floors. Bathrooms lacked modern shower/tub. One claw foot tub with shower curtain surround, the other with small shower stall.

Fits in well in Asheville.

Fits in well in Asheville. Best experience if you’re under six feet tall.

Owner's Response: Being the owner and 6'2", I have no problems moving about the house comfortably with the 8 foot ceilings throughout the home. yes the only time I may have to duck my head the slightest is on the stairs at the landing because structurally we could not change that in the renovations.

Artsy, quirky and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home. We stayed with my daughter and son-in-law for a wedding. Our family stayed downtown. We were 6 minutes away from them. We were 6 minutes away from all different areas. Location was great, a hop from the River Arts studios and breweries.

I'm very fastidious but this place was clean and welcoming for guests. Flowers greeted us. The house is funky artsy. We made breakfast and had all the needed utensils for cooking.

Read prior reviews. Didn't smell any oil. I'm hypersensitive and allergic, but even if there were prior animals visiting, this place was clean. My daughter brought her dog and this place is animal friendly, as is the town. We went into artist studios and animals were permitted and greeted with treats.

Also read about the slanted floors in prior reviews. It's a fun artsy older house that has been nicely decorated, so the slightly slanted staircase didn't deter me in the least, even with my knee replacement.

I probably would have given this home a five, but I'm 5 ft tall and had to stretch to reach the mirror to put on makeup. I have only two small requests: place a mirror in the bathrooms a little lower so us shorties can make up and have at least 1 full length mirror so I could have seen how nice I looked dressed for the wedding.

I would come back and stay here again anytime. It is a great house and in a great location.

Birthday Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

A late review.. but better late than never! Ginee and Kevin were both great to work with. I booked the house for a birthday weekend with 6 friends. There was plenty of space for 7 people in the house. The house was very welcoming! The area did seem a little sketchy when we arrived at 3AM, but all concerns went away the next day. The house was close and convenient to all the places we wanted to visit. We never paid more than $11 for an uber! We did have one issue on the day we were leaving, but both Ginee and Kevin were quick to respond and took care of any concerns we may have had! Overall, had a fabulous week!

We had a fun and fantastic time at this vacation rental in Asheville! It was truly a last minute trip. Our hope was to find a house instead of a hotel, so that we could cook at home and relax during our stay. We had some concerns regarding a review, but I can assure you that this place was clean and we had no smell issues whatsoever. We had several conversations with Ginee and we certainly appreciated her help in making this happen for us. She went above and beyond in my book. It's just a short drive to the downtown area as well as to the Biltmore. Fresh flowers in every room was a special touch. We will definitely be back!
