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 the 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.

Place was easy to find, stylish, very clean, and bed was comfy. Kara was responsive throughout the weekend. I'd definitely stay here again!

Can't recommend Kara's place enough. It was clean, comfortable, well decorated, and the location is A+! We loved staying here and wish we could stay longer.

What a perfect space to stay and relax but also right in the middle of the best of Asheville! We loved the layout, decor and relaxing atmosphere of Kara and Drew's space. They had everything we needed and communicated immediately if we had questions. We walked every day to the great restaurants in West Asheville. Quick Uber trips to Downtown, the Biltmore and Sierra Nevada (never more than $20). I can't say enough good things about our trip and stay. Thanks for opening your home to us! Cheers!

Kara's place is outstanding! My wife and I wanted a modern space that was close to local favorites, and this place out did itself. It exceeded all expectations that we had!! We could walk to a huge number of amazing restaurants and shopping and downtown was a short 5 minute drive. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun and romantic getaway!

Kara and Drew have a beautiful home in a very cool neighborhood! West Asheville is a fun place to be from sun up to sun down and beyond, and our stay here made it very accessible - quick walks to lots of restaurants, shops, coffee, and a good look at what life is like outside of the heart of the city. We even want to move to west Asheville after our experience staying here!

Kara's place was private while still being attached to their home. It was very clean, cute, comfortable and in a great location.

Our stay was great! The home is located in a very quiet and pretty neighborhood, within walking distance to the hip shops and restaurants of the Westside. The space was very clean and well decorated, with all the needed amenities.

Kara User ProfileKara is a superhost.

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.
