Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I came into Asheville and stayed at this wonderfully secluded place close to everything. Our host was super kind. The hot tub was excellent! The bed is super comfortable! Our host stayed out of our way and we enjoyed everything Asheville had to offer. The Hole and Sunny Point Cafe are musts while there. Wonderful town and I must say this place is way better than any hotel. Be open minded and enjoy. Thank you Michael for opening up your doors to us! We will be staying here again In March of 2017 for the Biltmore Marathon again I promise you!

Nice place

  • 3 of 5

Bed is comfortable, good shower, coffee. It is also convenient to most everything in Asheville. Urban location in a woodsy setting. Michael is nice and accomodating. Hot tub is ready to hop in.

The ceilings are low, decorated with lighted buddhist statues in the room and at the entrance. You have to go outside to go to the kitchen.

Not what we thought

  • 2 of 5

Enjoyed the comfortable king bed but that was about it. No cable TV, just streaming Netflix, so we didn't have cable to watch daily news or any regular programing at night. If you plan to stay several days, your stove is a hot plate and small dirty toaster oven. Your refrigerator is only about 5 cu ft. so you have no space to store food purchased for any lengthy stay. Very inconvenient. Except for the bedroom, the rest of your stay will be in areas without air conditioning, as your kitchen, dining and living quarters are basically outside with a roof and make shift walls. I did miss not having a reclining chair to get comfortable. You do have a hot tub for those who wish to use it. You have a nice park nearby but you should drive to it since walking back would require a very long uphill jaunt. This rental is in a residential neighborhood so I would recommend you use Google Earth so you know where you will be staying. With all this said the cost per night is probably the best in Ashville and you do have peace and quiet.

Owner's Response: kevin,perhaps next time you should bring your cable tv and recliner with you so you can really appreciate what we offer here.It is so dissapointing for me with what we have to offer you to hear that the bed was the only good thing.I am sorry you couldn't appreciate many of the benefit here that many person experience who stay at our rent.At least you had some peace and relaxation.............There realy isn't anything make shift here but if that is how you see it so be it.I haven't had a review like this before.I am glad you found it good value.......

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time in West Asheville. The rental was cozy and perfect for myself, my husband, and our dog. The outdoor living room was great- we spent a lot of time out there. West Asheville is very nice- so many shops and food and things to do, and there is a dog park right down the road! Very highly recommended.
