Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 26, 2015
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

A perfect location for exploring downtown Asheville! This beautiful two bedroom apartment is located in the upstairs of a huge home built in 1920. The upstairs location and the surrounding trees are the reason our guests have named it the Tree House. A charming, roomy studio is the centerpiece of this attractive space.

If you like walking, you can get to the civic center for a show in about 10 minutes, or walk downtown in about 12 to 15 minutes. There are three state-of-the-art grocery stores within about a five minute walk. Trader Joe's, Harris Teeter and Greenlife Grocery are all just up the block. The Montford neighborhood just across Broadway has some gorgeous homes and a nice park, and the Visitor's Center is within easy walking distance. You could even stroll over to UNC Asheville if you feel so inclined, it's right down the street.

The studio has a large window at the end so you have lots of light. One guest stayed about a month and used it as a yoga and massage room. There is a futon sofa in the studio that can be opened out to a full size futon bed. An open floor plan leads to the kitchen, so you can enjoy your family and friends while you cook. We recently updated the kitchen floor from vinyl tile to laminate and it makes a huge difference.

The front bedroom faces Chestnut Street and you can see some of downtown Asheville from the window. It's a good sized room with hardwood floors, and an old fireplace (it's out of service but still adds character). There is a nice dresser and a closet so you will have plenty of storage for your clothes. It is very cheery and bright. There's a super comfortable queen size bed that has been described by one guest as "the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in".

The middle bedroom is a bit smaller. and also features the same kind of bed. These beds are fairly new, purchased in September 2012. We have received a lot of great feedback about them and we bought identical ones for all our properties. There is a dresser and a closet in this bedroom as well, and the window overlooks the side yard, the downstairs porch and Fulton Street down below.

The bathroom is spacious and well lit by a large window and two light fixtures. It has a tub with tiled in shower and a shower curtain.

Please note that this is an old house, and it's located on a fairly busy street. There is no off-street parking, so during busy times you may have a bit of a walk. There are a lot of steps to navigate. The downstairs residents keep a well appointed and very clean chicken pen in the side yard. The home has been restored in the old style, and improvements are ongoing. Most of our guest find it charming, but it is not for everyone so please consider these facors before you rent. We want our guests to be happy and have a great experience, so if you have questions or concerns please feel free to email or call.

IMPORTANT: This is an upstairs apartment, and the caretakers live downstairs. They are available to answer questions, address your concerns, and help make your stay more enjoyable. They have three young children, so please no loud noise late at night.

We specialize in property management services for short term rentals. We can also help you get started in vacation rentals so please feel free to contact us. Visit our web site at PeteKey dot com for more information.

If you are looking to make Asheville your home, this is a perfect home base for house hunting. We are a good resource if that's your plan, as we know the area and the market. So please let us know and we will help you any way we can.

Thanks and enjoy your stay in Asheville!

Reviewer Comments:
This apt was perfect for our Christmas visit to Asheville. Very roomy and outfitted nicely. The neighborhood is perfect for walking and running. Can't express enough how impressed we are with Pete Key calling and texting us information we needed for our stay. We will definitely rent from Pete Key Properties again and likely will rent this apt again.

Very nice set up. Good amount of space. Kitchen and bath had everything in order. The mattresses were the only area that could be improved, otherwise a perfect stay.

Reviewer Comments:
We loved just about everything about this apartment. The location is perfect--about an 8-10 minute walk to downtown Asheville, but set back off the street in a more residential neighborhood. Lots of trees provide both beauty and privacy. The yard and surroundings are well maintained, and the chickens are a nice addition too. :)<br/><br/>Inside, there's a perfect amount of space for 2-4 people. The place was nicely decorated and spotless when we arrived. The kitchen is well equipped, and the bathroom was well-stocked with lots of towels.<br/><br/>Our only small complaint was with the mattresses/beds, which felt quite worn. They were less than comfortable, and pretty noisy to sleep on. With that said, with the small improvement of updating the beds, this apartment would be absolutely perfect. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

Reviewer Comments:
The apartment was clean, had a well-equippped kitchen, good wi-fi, and a nice location in a pretty neighborhood a short walk from downtown. There was no iron, but fortunately the owner (who lives downstairs) was home and when I called she put one out for me right away. <br/><br/>My only real issue was the condition. E.g., bathroom door doesn't latch, window screens torn, some windows have to be propped open or don't open at all, old mattress, dreary lighting at night, in general the place feels worn out.<br/><br/>So in short don't expect a romantic getaway place, but for my purpose (a couple of guys needing a clean place to stay for the night) it worked out great.

We had a lovely stay at the Tree Top apartment near downtown Asheville. The location was super - close to shopping, food shopping, dining and on a quiet street.<br/>The internet was highly unreliable, so if you need the internet for work, don't count on it.

Notes:

  • This beautiful Asheville vacation rental is in the heart of it all, just minutes from downtown. It is in a historic district in an area where many homes are being restored to their former glory. This particular home is one of the largest and most beautiful in the neighborhood, and really stands out as an example of fine 1920s architecture.
