About Monica Tilhou
Hi! My name is Monica and thank you for reading about my precious property! I'm a recent widow in her early 60's who's been enjoying the process of transforming a home into a real beauty. . . When my husband, John, of 34 years died 8 years ago, I moved to Asheville and later bought this home. Through remodeling over the psst 2yrs, I've been able to decorate it as a very appealing and highly satisfying rental for adults and children alike! My life's work/project- my 3 wonderful adult kids and 2sweet granddaughters, were the inspiration for this remodeling project! Because I want to keep them visiting me here often, I had the incentive to make this a warm, yet "luxurious" mountain retreat! I travel occasionally but will usually be here in town at a nearby home during your stay. It's always a pleasure to greet guests and welcome them to my home, so I look forward to meeting you and showing you around the house and grounds personally- it would be my pleasure! I truly hope you Enjoy your stay- your days and nights (on the front porch with a fire!?) while you're here in lovely Asheville!
Monica Tilhou purchased this Bungalow in 2013
Why Monica Tilhou chose Asheville
I fell in love with Asheville on my very first visit and moved into a rental here 6 months later! That was in 2010. As I searched for a home close to town to purchase some 2 1/2 years later, I was drawn immediately to this lovely, picturesque spot, overlooking a pond and facing an evergreen mountain that fills the view! I knew I had to live here! So, after purchasing it in the Spring of 2013, I undertook dramatic renovations which have brought great response and delight to family and visitors alike. It's been great fun! I'm proud of the place and pleased to offer a home of this caliber so close to town... 5 minutes! Great views, large front porch, back screened-in porch, gourmet kitchen, 6-7 person hot tub and, somewhat rare among home rentals, a secluded, backyard fire pit up into the woods for conversing and roasting marshmallows! Also, if you are arriving from several directions, easy parking for up to four cars is available at the house with a seperate turnaround green space.
What makes this Bungalow unique
This home is perfect for a family get-together! It also should appeal to 2-3 couples with up to 3 children, 5 with avail queen air mattress. There are 2 queen-bedded rooms 1 Bunkbed Room for 3-5 1 upstairs apt for 1-2 with a full bed, fridge, microwave and storage space for snacks! Great rec room for the kids, two. Small tv w/cable. While enjoying the Living Room, relax on the new leather sofa with extra seating. The room features a candelabra, a mountain-view and often a roaring fireplace! Piano in the dining room for music lovers~ Great neighborhood for walking, too! Three laps around the pond below is about a mile! A slow, one-way path around this pond takes you through our quiet, little neighborhood. Please observe a 10pm curfew on loud, outdoor gatherings. Revelry on the front porch or up in the acre of woods above carries an echo "heard all 'round the pond!". So do, please, respect this curfew each evening. Thanks so much!

Fabulous house, minutes to downtown
This house was perfect for our group. The living space flowed beautifully with plenty of room to cook, dine in and hang out. Clean and comfy!
We stoked up the fire pit and cozied up together on the deck. The hot tub was sparkling and just the right temp.
Easy access to all the fun that Asheville has to offer, so we would come and go all day. A $5 Lift ride when we chose not to drive.
Monica was the best. Relaxed, yet very responsive to our needs. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow.
We hope to stay there again on our next trip to Asheville!
Great place for a couples weekend!
Our stay in Asheville was amazing! Monica was a great host! She had clear instructions that made checking in and out very smooth. If there were any problems, she was just a call away. We walked into a clean home. The house accommodated 10 of us comfortably. The view is spectacular on the big deck out front! I regret not taking advantage of the hot tub outside. It was a really neat set up! We really enjoyed downtown Asheville and the uber was very reasonable. This was because it was only about a 10 min drive. I would highly recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to Asheville! Thank you again Monica for being a great host!
Nice location. Clean. Well kept. We came in the summer, but the road and driveway would be difficult if there were snow on the ground.
Views are awesome
Great House In A Great Location!
Enjoyed our stay for a golf trip very much. We were a group of 10 but there are so many private spaces inside and out that we never felt crowded. Front deck is very large with plenty of seating. Location is in beautiful mountain setting very close to downtown and everything you need. Would definitely stay here again.
Getting the job done
There were a few "hiccups" during our stay , (the hot tub wasn't able to be used initially due to a leak, and the grill was not clean and wasn't working well). When I got in touch with Monica she actually replaced the grill the next day. The leak took a little longer to repair due to it being the July 4th week, but the repair was made and Monica compensated us for our loss of time to use it. Thumbs up Monica
The house is lovely and has all the amenities needed for a great getaway vacation in Asheville!
Though it's 5-6 mins to town by car it's a hilly, 20-25 mins on foot-I don't recommend it.
A taxi would cost $15-20 rd trip. Uber runs slightly less, I've heard. But your best transport is having your own car for multiple daily trips in nearly any direction. The area offers rolling hills and small, picturesque valleys along with mtn views available to the north and south of Asheville along the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you just need to "veg-out", do it on the front porch with a multi-hued mtn offering up an undeniable, "Welcome Home!".
