My place is within walking distance of several bus stops. Also, within walking distance of several restaurants (fast food and sit-down) and Noble Cider (a local brewery). West Asheville (aka "Best Asheville") is a short 3.5 mile drive from the house and Dowtown Asheville is less than 5 miles away. Take your pick of local parks, Carrier Park is closest - about a 10 min drive - and is right on the French Broad River.

The space

This listing is for the entire lower level of a three-story home. You will have complete privacy as access to the other floors is blocked off. Check in at any time and come and go as you please with the coded lock on the rear entrance. No full kitchen, but a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker are available. Enjoy a large outdoor patio, accessible from each room through sliding glass doors. Pull curtains closed for privacy or leave them open for an abundance of sunshine. We have a 42" HD TV in the living area with a DVD player, and Netflix access (with your own account). High-speed Internet with wifi connection is also provided. We have a whole house water filtration system and you have access to your own thermostat for the heat/AC. The space is cozy, warm and inviting. The mattress is plush and oh so cozy. You won't want to go home after this!

Guest access

Guests have access to parking (limit 2 cars). The listing is the last house at the end of the drive. As you approach you will see an upper and a lower "pull-in" spot. Please park on the lower drive and follow the concrete walkway to the rear of the home.
Guests are free to check in any time as the entrance has a coded lock (code will be provided prior to arrival). The entryway opens to a mud room and guest will have full access to the entire bottom floor including, mud room/laundry room, bedroom, bathroom, hallway, extra large living room, and outdoor yard and patio.
Also includes AT&T Uverse cable, high speed internet, and Netflix - all available on a 42" HD TV.

Interaction with guests

I interact as often as preferred. Typically we are not home on the weekends, and stay pretty busy. So, we may not even be in town during your stay. We may say hello in passing as we walk our dogs and are coming/going to the house. However, if you are more social, we love to meet new people and make recommendations for things to do/places to go/restaurants etc.

Our stay at Deanna and Josh's home was wonderful and just as described. There was a snow storm the night we arrived so we had to park down the hill from their house. Josh and Deanna kindly walked to the end of the drive to help us bring our luggage up. There was a book of recommendations and chocolates waiting for us when we arrived and they even offered us chili if we didn't want to get back out in the weather. This was our first ABNB and it was a wonderful experience.

Location is great if you are looking to be just a short ride away from downtown Asheville yet secluded away just off the beaten path. The place was just as described and we would recommend. Worked for us!

This was my first airbnb experience! It was exactly as described. Short 10-15 min drive to Biltmore. Close to downtown. Enjoyed the privacy and separate entrance. Had all kinds of toiletries just in case you forgot yours.

Great little spot in West Asheville. Easy Uber to downtown ($10, 15 mins). Deanna and Josh were quick to respond to our questions. Check in was super easy and the apt was very clean. Great for a weekend stay! Thanks!

We have traveled extensively both domestically and internationally and have stayed in many Airbnb spaces. This is the first somewhat negative review we’ve ever left. We arrived just after 5 PM, unpacked the car, checked in and showered for dinner. We found 5-6 used /damp towels from the previous guests hanging on the single hook provided on the back of the bathroom door. The very light colored (off white) rug in living area has a number of large (URL HIDDEN) needs replacing or professional cleaning as it does not project a clean image. Got home from dinner at 1030 PM, and could not find remote to turn on TV (found out from host the next day it’s missing and has not been replaced). In the search for the remote, we found under the seat cushions numerous food particles and debris (hair, coin, hair tie). Texted host on her personal cell phone at 1045 PM (per host requested mode of communication) concerning the TV issue and also texted a few minutes later through the Airbnb site. After not hearing back, we decided around 1130 PM the space was just not working out as we’d hoped. We packed and left at midnight to get a hotel room for the rest of our 3 day stay in the area. The only items we used were two bath towels, one hand towel and one glass for drinking water from the bathroom sink which is the only sink in the space. We did not use the bed or any other items. We gathered all trash and took it with us. The first we heard back from our host was at 745 AM (9 hours after our first text the previous night). Pros: Area is quiet and just a short drive to West Asheville activities and a little further to downtown. Communication prior to our arrival was prompt and professional. Check in was easy and hosts were friendly. Once we heard back from the host regarding the issues mentioned above, she was apologetic about the dirty towels and the missing TV remote, but was more defensive regarding the stained rug and debris under the cushions. We are superhosts of our own Airbnb space and know that cleanliness, host availability and timeliness of host responses are of the utmost importance to our guests. We hope these comments are helpful to future guests and the hosts. The space has great potential and we sincerely wish them well.
