Adorable space opening from a small second floor deck to a living room full of windows, hardwood floors, original tile bathroom floor and ceramic tub, little hall to sweet, eat-in breakfast nook leading to a bedroom with 2 closets, and a comfy captain's bed with large drawers for clothes. Entrance to the apartment is behind the house, up a flight of external stairs (steep, so this is not a good fit for people who have a hard time with stairs) to a deck overlooking yard with shared fire pit, flower and vegetable gardens. Close by are UNCA wooded trails leading to Botanical gardens. Apartment is about a mile from the outskirts of downtown, and convenient to everything including shops, breweries, ice cream, galleries, boutiques, restaurants, museums, grocery stores, natural foods stores, etc. Short walk from the apartment is a wonderful bakery/market/restaurant where you can get sumptuous food, coffee, and all kinds of culinary treats. Off street parking for one car, (the driveway to the parking lot can be a bit tricky; you may need to back out when leaving, or feel free to park on the street in front of the house. Usually there are plenty of spaces there as well.) Washer/Dryer in unfinished basement with separate entrance shared with guests in second apartment. Apartment is fully furnished with tasteful furnishing and art, kitchenette. Comfy fold-out queen sized sofa bed in living room with linens, down mattress topper, and bedding in closet and chest for extra guests. Bedroom has a comfy, queen-sized captain's bed, lamps, lots of pillows, 2 closets. We offer TV or cable in this apartment on a large flat screen TV in living room with hundreds of channels. Feel free to (responsibly) enjoy the fire pit in the back yard, grill. Neat, typical Asheville neighborhood with some historic houses, some new constructions, modern, some families, some students and professionals. Very safe; we have never had any crime here to our knowledge. If you bring a pet, please make sure that your pet is completely flea-free and let us know in advance so that we may assess whether they are a good fit. There is a $45 pet fee. We will only consider extraordinarily well behaved pets. If you have a pet, please put the provided sofa cover over the sofa to protect it from dirty paws and teething jaws. Walls are thick plaster, so not a whole lot of sound carries, yet you may hear some sounds of others and footsteps, or smell cooking, etc. from our side of the house. Just below the apartment is another guest room, so we ask that you please take off shoes when convenient. We live close by in the historic district Monford, and are available if any issues arise. Also we have wonderful resident managers in the main part of the house who can help you if needed. There are 2 gas heaters, and in the warmer months, we have A/C window units. Please feel free to harvest some fresh herbs from our back yard herb garden, or vegies from our garden boxes. We welcome constructive feedback so that we can make any improvements that will make our guests' stay any more enjoyable. We very much prefer this feedback directly, so that we can better understand and remedy any issue that may come up, without unnecessarily alienating others. We try to be fully transparent about the apartment so that you can best make your booking decisions, well-informed.

Why April Levin chose Five Points
We love historic homes and this one has a lot of charm and is quite close to downtown Asheville in a neat neighborhood.
What makes this Apartment unique
Some of the fun things about this house is that there are some original details like the original ceramic tub, hardwood floors, and bathroom tiles, as well as interesting windows, built-in ironing boards and crown molding. The property is walking distance to downtown and UNCA, yet some find it too far to walk. Since it is an old house, please note that it is a bit quirky, and rustic, but very clean.

LOCATION! CHARM! COMFORT! This has it all
This is one of the many owner rentals we have enjoyed, and it's right at the top of the list. It is amazing in every respect. The only warning is for those who have issue with steep outside entry stairs. Otherwise, stay here! : )
This place was perfect… It was me, my sister and her our 2 teenage daughters… Our girls immediately said when they walked in, “I want to live here“… The only thing I would suggest is that when you sit down on the toilet seat it the whole toilet moves a bit... Felt like it might break… And I am 5 foot seven and weigh 145 pounds… And maybe that the landscaping could’ve been taken care of a little bit better… The downstairs neighbors were awesome… Very friendly.
Cute Apartment in a Great Location
My daughter and I stayed here recently and had a great experience. April provided great directions and all the information we needed. This location is very close to all the attractions in Asheville - we never had to drive more than 6-7 minutes to access all the things we wanted to do. The apartment is nicely furnished, and we felt very welcome (the lovely flowers were a nice extra touch!). We stayed here in July, and the description does note that there are window unit air conditioners; these were a bit noisy at night. Aside from that minor point, we had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this location.
Very comfy, inviting and relaxing.
My husband and I stayed three nights here for a long weekend get-away. Loved every minute we stayed both in the unit and around town. We did bring out 8lb dog and found the yard and space to be plenty for both us two-footed and four-footed family members. The home is older but is well loved. Every attention to detail, big and small, was looked after. Couch was comfy, bed was comfy, too. There are window a/c units which we're not used to (we're used to central air), but they really weren't a bother at all.
April made sure we had all the essentials, coffee (yeah!), creamers, sugar, cups, towels, soap (bath and hand), dish towels, etc. She even made sure to include the poo-pouri! Ha!
This was a GREAT HOME and we loved it. Very close to everything. Having a small SUV worked very well for the back-of-house parking spot. Very homey. Thank you!
