Walk to Sunny Point Cafe, Biscuit Head, and other West Asheville hot spots from our quiet, welcoming neighborhood. It's a 5-minute drive to the River Arts District and New Belgium Brewing, 10 to downtown or the Biltmore Estate, and only 15 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway. You'll enjoy privacy and comfort of the in-law apartment in our modern, green-built home.

The space

Your space is a bright and airy in-law apartment in the walk-out basement of our home. You have your own private entrance, covered patio, living space, kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom. We welcome ALL guests to our cozy space!

Guest access

You will have access to the full basement apartment, with a separate entrance. We avoid using the backyard when you are present and save chores like mowing the lawn for when you are out exploring or between guest stays, to make it even more private for you.

Interaction with guests

We live upstairs, and you will hear us moving around from time to time. We try to be conscientious and quiet; however, fair warning: we are fairly early risers, especially on weekdays. If you have any questions or needs, we are just a text away. Please let us know if you have issues with the wi-fi or temperature and we are happy to help troubleshoot. We can also suggest hikes and activities (check out our guidebook for lots more).

Other things to note

ACCESSIBILITY: This unit is accessed via a path from the street level to the basement level. If you have mobility issues, you may prefer to book elsewhere.

FURRY FRIENDS: We do not allow pet visitors. Our cat Fuzzy Bear lives upstairs. If you are extremely allergic, you may prefer to book elsewhere.

PERMITS: We are a LEGAL homestay and fully permitted through the City of Asheville!

EXTREME TEMPS: The unit has baseboard heaters, but no A/C. We've added fans and the unit stays comfortable especially if you open up the windows at night.

Kara and Drew's place is a wonderful spot in West Asheville. The place is spacious, cozy, and very clean. Great modern furniture and artwork. Close to great restaurants, bars, breweries, music, outdoor activities, and everything else that's awesome about Asheville.

We loved staying at Kara and Drew's place. It was clean, comfortable and easy to get to. We didn't get to meet Kara but we did meet Drew, her husband, who was very friendly and quick to help us when we had trouble getting on the wifi. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do, quick walks and cheap uber rides! We would absolutely recommend this place and would love to stay again on future trips to Asheville! Thanks Kara and Drew!

Great West Asheville location where the neighborhoods are experiencing rapid redevelopment. Neighborhood still retains its funky, local vibe. Easy drive into downtown, over to the River Arts District, or south to the Biltmore Estate. Kara was extremely responsive to our few inquiries. Internet access is available but unreliable.

Response from Kara:
We definitely appreciate the feedback about the internet and we're going to update our hardware in hopes of fixing the issue. Thanks for being awesome guests!

Great value for the area. We were close driving distance to DT and did walk to local restaurants. They were very helpful with suggestions and quick to answer questions too. Note to others : bring a book bc there is no TV and internet is very unreliable.

Kara's place was great for a long weekend trip to Asheville! They live in a wonderful neighborhood walk-able to all of the happenings in West Asheville, particularly some awesome breakfast spots. When we weren't in West Asheville, very easy to get to Asheville and River Arts district via Uber. Would absolutely recommend and stay in Kara's place again!

This is a Perfect spot of you love West Asheville! A great little space to hunker down and have the ease to walk everywhere. It's a 5 minute walk to sunny point which is insanely delicious and only 30 minutes walk to new Belgium brewing. We has an amazing couple days. The surrounding neighborhoods charm is so beautiful and lush, you can tell how much everyone cares to live there! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I'm a scientist, traveler, foodie, and cyclist. My husband Drew and I love exploring new places through coffee, beer, and biking. We live in a quiet West Asheville neighborhood with our six year old son Nels and very large cat. Come stay with us and ask us about our Asheville favorites.
