About Mark Morales
I was born in Manhattan, NYC. My parents were also born and raised there. Early influence by my aunt, a Broadway "gypsy" dancer inspired me to the performing arts where I worked with Joffrey Ballet and Alvin Ailey, and soon to transitioned to the Broadway stage in the revival of West Side Story working closely with Leonard Bernstein. Other shows include "Cats" and "Sunset Boulevard" working with Glenn Close while doing the soap opera, 'One Life To Live". I have just come out with a new CD titled, "Something's Coming" which will be a pleasure to share with you upon arrival to my home!
Mark Morales purchased this House in 2003
Why Mark Morales chose Asheville
Moving from an apartment in Manhattan to owning this home in Asheville has given me new perspective on what life has to offer, and I have tried to meld my former artistic adventures into this very environment. I invite you to take advantage of my lovely home, so comfortable and easy, so private yet within a 6 to 10 minute drive from all Asheville has offer!
What makes this House unique
Mountain views, underscored by a large 12' x 60' deck. Digital access for easy entry. Large great room and kitchen, large pantry and laundry room. Master has a king bed. There are few better ways to experience a great nights' sleep in our mountains. Peace and quiet are the grand juxtaposition to a busy night on the town, and so you shall have it here. Springtime will greet you with a multitude of bulbs and flowers, planted over 12 years. Fall and winter bring a riot of autumn color and pristine mountain views. There is a championship Disc-Golf park about 1/4 mile away (truly walking distance), that has extensive hiking and biking trails down to the French Broad River. My dog Jack and I explore them just about every day! This area of Asheville is one of the best kept secrets in Asheville!!

Wonderful retreat, great views
We really enjoyed our stay, great location, super close to downtown, but far enough away where you feel like you're really in the mountains. The home was nicely furnished with everything we needed for a family of 4, including a well-stocked kitchen. The views off the back deck we're very nice. Recommend.
Comfortable, Great View, Close to town
A comfortable retreat! The house is located in a quiet neighborhood yet it's so convenient to downtown Asheville. A bonus is the back deck with a spectacular mountain view. The home works equally well as a "base camp" for in town excursions and also as a comfortable place to hang out, cook dinner in and catch a movie on the big screen TV.
We were unable to check-in or reach the owner (phone calls and text) so after over an hour of working with HomeAway we moved into a hotel for the night. Upon finally getting in on day 2 the place was reasonable and as shown in the pictures:
-There is a slight cigarette smell, and the ash burns in the carpet of the master bedroom would lead you to believe a smoker once lived there.
-There is an iron but no ironing board.
-The downtown is only ~10minutes away but ubers for Sat / Sun night wound up being ~$30 for each round trip.
-The fenced in back yard is very small - really only suitable for the dog to go to the bathroom - not for exercise.
The owner offered free nights in the future to make up for the inconvenience but I don't think that I would stay here again.
Perfect location for a weekend trip to Asheville. Only a $10 Uber ride to downtown and the scenery and deck were great. House was comfortable, clean and well maintained. Perfect for 4 people!
