About Joe Allawos

My family moved into town a couple years back to improve our daughter's option for school and we have found so much cool stuff around us! From tailgate markets to award winning breweries, sake and hard cider houses, this area is a gourmet's delight!

Joe Allawos purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Joe Allawos chose Asheville

Close to everything, with a hot tub and fire pit in a fenced yard, comfortable beds and a fully stocked kitchen. Off road parking for three cars! It's convenient, comfortable and affordable. Please check the calendar before sending us a request to make sure the dates are available. Or use the convenient Instant Book option.

What makes this apartment unique

Enjoy the mountain trails and then unwind in comfort and style. We are walking distance to award winning restaurants!! Explore the local breweries without your car! It is Beer City USA after all! We are Dog Friendly! (Additional $60 cleaning fee required for one dog, $80 for two dogs, due in cash on arrival). Please note: We do not accept more than two dogs. Sorry, no exceptions. We do ask that you keep your dogs off of the linens and out of the bedroom. People often ask: "How far to downtown?" Well, you ARE downtown! West Asheville has everything you could possibly want all within a short walk. The closest bars and restaurants are within 200 yards of the Hideaway so you won't have to go far. And when you return, relax in the hot tub or enjoying WiFi on the patio. We live on the premises and are here to help but only if you need us. Otherwise, you likely will not even know we are here.

Our family took a post-Christmas trip and loved the house and location. Joseph checked in with us before we arrived as well as made sure we had everything we needed once we got to Asheville. The location of the house is perfect and we were able to walk to restaurants with two young children. The layout of the house was perfect as the bedrooms are set far apart down a hallway. Everything was clean and the house had all we needed (kitchen supplies, linens, wifi, games). The kids loved the hot tub. We will definitely come back again!

We had a wonderful stay and plan to return. We were running late getting into town and had received a text message with instructions when arriving, which was nice. We got into the home easy and when we arrived we were surprised at how big the home was. We decided to head out and as we were leaving the owner greeted us and gave suggestions about local spots in town. We enjoyed the fresh local coffee that was provided. Thank you for a nice relaxing stay.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The basement apartment is lovely. The bedrooms were large & the living room is really comfortable & cozy. Our host was really nice! We didn't use the hot tub but it looked amazing. We could walk to W. Asheville from here to it''s many restaurants & bars. Lots of great live music! I would definitely stay here again!

Comfortable and convenient, everything we needed at a great price.

We enjoyed a long weekend at the Hideaway. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed, including a growler from the nearest brewery, great coffee and cream, and several personal suggestions for nearby food and beverage. The apartment is about 3 miles from downtown Asheville, which was fine for our needs. It's in a quiet neighborhood and has a nice hot tub. We met the owner, Joe, who was very friendly and offered assistance with anything we needed. It wasn't "luxurious" but was an excellent value. I'd stay here again!
