Downtown Hipster Apartment #1

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Maxwell Street, Asheville, NC 28801, United States

This newly redone historic downtown apartment is perfect for your Asheville adventure. You can not beat this location, walk to everything! Three night minimum but you'll want to stay longer to fully soak up the unique Asheville vibe. Discounts available for stays longer than a week.

The Space

This spacious 700 square foot apartment comfortably sleeps four. There is a private bedroom with a king sized bed and a new queen sized futon in the living room. Guests should be aware that you have to walk through the bedroom to get access to the bathroom. Perfect for a family or anyone who wants a little extra space. Hard wood floors and a newly redone kitchen and bath gives this apartment an elegant and comfortable feel. Central heat and air. There is a TV with a network DVD player, but there is NO CABLE. Use the standard HDMI cord to hook up your computer or other devices and enjoy your own music, photos, or videos.

Guest Access

Guest will have access to a big covered front porch and off street parking.

Interaction with Guests

I love living in Asheville and would like to help you make the most of your visit. Just let me know if you need any suggestions for things to do or places to eat. I live down the street and am available if you need me, or out of your way if you don't.

The Neighborhood

The house is located in the 5 Points neighborhood. This area has historic houses and is on the north edge of downtown. This is a very desirable neighborhood. You'll feel like a local as you take a short stroll out your front door to all downtown locations.

Getting around

Getting around is super easy! Just a 5-10 minute walk to anywhere downtown. There's downtown parking garages and street parking if you want to drive. But honestly, it is quicker to walk than it is to drive and find parking. Or take your bike, its a quick and convenient way to get around.

Other Things to Note

The kitchen has modern appliances and is fully loaded with all the kitchen essentials. I'd be happy to stock the fridge with any food or drinks you'd like for an additional fee. There's a whole foods store across the street which is super convenient. The market is open from 7:30am-9:00pm every day and has a hot bar & salad bar, coffee & smoothie bar, & deli. Perfect for a quick bite.

Pets are allowed for a fee of $75 for well behaved animals up to 50lbs. This apartment has all new furniture and I prefer the pets to stay off the furniture. If this is an issue, I can provide a furniture cover to accommodate you and your fury friend.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Reid was a great host and made sure that we had everything we needed. The apt was charming, spacious and clean. I would highly recommend staying at this property since it was close to everything (downtown, Montford Park, botanical gardens, organic grocery shopping) and very comfortable for a family or party of four.

  • GREAT location and apartment! I Reid was a great host. The home had the basic amenities and was walking distance to three grocery stores, one running trial set, easy downtown shopping/restaurants/breweries. Parking was never a problem.

  • Reid's place was perfect for our stay in Asheville! It's a great location so you can walk anywhere downtown or stay in with all the amenities of home. Reid was a great host- we enjoyed meeting him and took all his recommendations on eating places around town. The apartment was just charming and it was an easy, good experience! Thanks Reid

  • This is a great apartment. It is conveniently located near downtown Asheville. Is also very close to a Trade Joe's and Whole Foods, so don't worry about bringing too much food. You will definitely enjoy this apartment. We would certainly visit again. Thanks a lot to Reid!

  • I was really excited since this was my first air bnb experience. I booked the place after reading all the good reviews. We actually ended up getting the place for a really good deal. I don't think we would have booked the place otherwise. I will start with the positives first. The place was super cute and huge, the grocery store was literally right across the street so that was nice, and it was an easy walk to downtown. I do wish that I could have interacted with the host more. I only saw Shannon for like 5 mins on the day we arrived. A few negatives -- you could hear the upstair neighbors walking around and when the heater came on it was pretty loud, so if you are a light sleeper this might be an issue. I'm sure this is because the house is old, but it is something to consider if visiting in the winter.

  • My husband and I stayed at the hipster apartment #1 for our first anniversary. It was perfect! The apartment was just the right size for the two of us and we loved how we could easily walk downtown. The futon in the living room would have been great if we had friends with us too!

    November 2013
  • We really enjoyed our stay! The apartment is very cute and spacious with a nice backyard. Also has a well-functioning heater (much-needed this time of year) and there was a spot we could use for parking. And a huge added plus--a short walk to downtown, and bunch of other stuff nearby (coffee shop, two grocery stores). Thanks so much!

  • Perfect location. Perfect hostess. I really enjoyed my stay at the Hipster. I found the grocery store across the street to be a big plus. Not only for necessities but for meals as well. Their salad and hot bar are terrific. Since the purpose of my trip was to retreat, the apartments location was perfect. Downtown is approx a 10-15 min walk. Close, yet far enough from crowds and noise. I highly recommend a stay at the Hipster! I will def be back.

  • This is an amazingly cool little apartment. While the pictures are very nice, they don't do justice to the nice furniture, wonderful artwork and ample space. Everything was spotless and all arrangements with Shannon went without a hitch. Plus, walking to and from downtown is a breeze. In ten minutes you are in the center of town. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice, quiet place convenient to downtown Asheville.
