About Stephanie Joy Johnson

I am Stephanie Joy Johnson, owner and manager of my vacation homes. 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 11 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes. I am a caring local owner and answer all inquiries personally. INDULGE! You deserve to be spoiled at my vacation home!

Stephanie Joy Johnson purchased this Chalet in 2006

Why Stephanie Joy Johnson chose Royal Pines

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

                                                                  The View Chalet served as a great location and gathering place for our girls weekend. Friends gathered from multiple places across the country in Asheville and the View Chalet was our home base. The home was comfortable and provided many of the comforts--coffee, wine glasses, hot tub--of home. There were many places for us to gather and chat with beautiful mountain views. It was easy to reach many attractions, including the Biltmore and Grove Park Inn for sunset cocktails from the View Chalet. Plus the homeowner, Stephanie, made us feel welcome and was easy to work with. Definitely a place that we would come back to.

                                                                  Lovely location and well equipped home

                                                                  We are a family of six with 4 adult children. We found this to be a fine home with well stocked kitchen, spacious bedrooms, clean and features fine views. Outdoors the hot tub and fire pit make a winter stay more enjoyable. Just a short walk away is a nature preserve but easy drive into Asheville and Dupont State Forest in the other direction. Highly recommended!

                                                                  Beautiful home with beautiful views!

                                                                  My husband and I stayed with my parents and 2 little ones (2.5 and 6 months). The views and fire pit were awesome for the adults, and the playroom and playset were a huge hit for my 2 year old. We were able to take the girls on their first hike and checked out a lot of great restaurants. It was also super convenient to have a crib, high chair, baby gates on site so we didn't have to pack our entire home. Definitely recommend to families similar to ours- we loved it!

                                                                  Wonderful View Chalet!

Very well kept and had all of what we needed while we were there. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks for the awesome stay!
