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 10 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 Smoky Mountains

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stephanie,

Your kitchen is one of the best stocked I have ever had in a vacation home. We have never had so many towels in a home or with a sheet and towel package or the soft sheets. It was super to have 2 sets of laundry facilities. It made keeping up with our own laundry so much easier and still keep towels done, too. The selection of baby gear was super. For once, we didn't need to haul our own and take up valuable car space. We could get away from one another, too. With a space on every floor, or a TV in any other room, we always had a choice of where to go if we wanted to do something else.



I was very pleased with the location. It reminded me of living in the hills in Japan. (We lived on the side of a mountain there, too.) This home literally was only 15 minutes from family who live in the area. I already miss the area. When we arrived back at our home yesterday, it was so humid and in the 80's. Guess that is why I really like the mountains.



On Sunday, we traveled to the Dinosaur Train outing. We found Asheville just a short drive away and spent Monday touring by Trolley. Great experience. Tuesday, we did The Carl Sandburg site, Elijah Gem mine, and family with a side trip to see the Elk in the Great Smokey Mt. Nat. Park, NC side. Busy day but so rewarding. Wednesday was a trip to Chimney Rock and dinner out. Thursday was the Biltmore Estate home, and Friday was Skyline drive and Black Mountain. You can see, we weren't at the home much. But when we were, it was a pleasure to just relax.



Your selection of brochures was also exceptional. Maps, places to go, things to do were so helpful.



It has been a pleasure working with you, and staying in your home. Thank you so much for a fond memory. It was an excellent time. Thank you again for everything.

  • 5 of 5

The View Chalet was absolutely gorgeous!! We visited the Biltmore, Chimney Park and Grandfather Mountain while vacationing in North Carolina and what a lovely home to come back to in the evenings. The view was out of this world and the home was equipped with everything you could possibly need while vacationing. The hot tub, hammock and massage chair were all big hits with the family! Thanks again for sharing this lovely home!!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

I’ve used Home away in the past and this way by far our best experience with them. The owner of the property is the reason why. Very well kept and had all of what we needed while we were there. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks for the awesome stay!

Mountain retreat

  • 4 of 5

A relaxing getaway in the mountains close to south asheville. Plenty of space for a large family in this home. Upstairs not suitable for elderly due to steep staircase. Downstairs smells damp but clean. Hot tub and views made the trip

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review on the VIEW CHALET. I’m delighted you enjoyed the magnificent mountain views and the big hot tub (always filled with fresh water!) I am diligent to make sure each of my homes are clean, well maintained, thoughtfully furnished and filled with great amenities! For future potential guests who might read your review, I appreciate you pointing out that there are stairs in this 3 story mountain chalet. I realize you reserved the home last minute for the overflow of your unexpected guests and probably didn’t have the time to carefully read that this home has stairs. Unfortunately the new owners of HomeAway/VRBO no longer allow phone calls between owners and potential guests prior to a reservation….where such issues can be discussed. I would guess that your guests did not read the House Guest Instructions so were unaware of the correct use of the AC system. I noticed that they had set the AC to a really cold temperature and the ducts had been closed upstairs, forcing the cold to the first floor….no wonder it seemed damp to you! I do my best to let guests know they can call me anytime with any issue which is usually easily resolved. I live nearby and have staff that are always available!

Appropriately named the View

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the property. The home is up near the top of the mountain with views galore. The grandkids enjoyed the playroom and we all enjoyed the hot tub and campfires. The home is well equipped with all the comforts of home. We traveled everyday to a different destination either waterfalls, hiking, the Biltmore, many breweries, restaurants and of course, Asheville. We enjoy yes our stay very much.

Relaxing, peaceful, amazing mountain views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far THE best home we have ever rented. They had EVERYTHING we needed for the small children. The views were spectacular with beautiful woodpeckers. The location is close to Asheville and when we stayed it was a winter wonderland. We were suprised being on a mountain how much space there was around the home, such ad the large parking lot area, hot tub and fire pit and the play area. Thank you for a great family trip Stephanie! We will be back!

We could not have asked for a better spot to enjoy the all the area has to offer. The home was large, clean, quiet, well stocked and well located. We hope to return one day.
