Great location. Good size.

This is a great house for a big group. Huge parking lot, and right off the highway to get into downtown Asheville.

Sisters Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This space and location was perfect for myself and sisters for a long-overdue reunion. We enjoyed the "loft" (more square footage than my house!) so much that we stayed in for dinners.

Our forays to the Biltmore Estate and the River Arts District were easy to get to as well. We'll be back!

Overall it was good, but a little lacking

  • 4 of 5

Overall the loft was fine. It's big and we fit 11 people in it nicely. There is plenty of seating and lounging space. The up-cycle theme is super cute, we loved the decor. It's very close to downtown and we were able to get Lyft rides really easily. It's convenient to grocery stores and drug stores. Leaving us coffee and beverages was a nice touch.

There weren't quite enough towels for everyone to shower - maybe you're supposed to wash them but that's hard if everyone showers on the same day. It was also not as clean as I felt it should have been - there was a lot of dust and cobwebs. When we moved the couches around to use the pull-out beds the floors were dirty underneath. We also had to go out and buy trash bags, more toilet paper, and paper towels. There just wasn't any extra. There also was no plastic wrap or aluminum foil in the kitchen which I thought was really unusual - that made storing leftovers after cooking kind of a challenge.

If the few things I mentioned above were taken care of (they're really easy things), I would definitely stay here again with a large group.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay! We have done some spring cleaning and gotten more more towels for the unit and well as some of the kitchen basics that you mention! Thank you for the suggestions! Come again anytime!

Great apartment for groups in Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a terrific experience with kathy’s apartment. Located just outside Asheville downtown, there was easy access to and from the city, making Uber’s a breeze. The apartment itself is really nice, with plenty of sleeping options, and everything you’ll need (we cooked breakfast each morning and dinner one night). For the price, location and size, you’re simply not going to find a better option.
