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 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 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.
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.
Getting around is super easy! Just a 5-15 minute walk to anywhere downtown. There's downtown parking garages and street parking if you want to drive. It can be quicker to walk than it is to drive and find parking. Or take your bike, its a quick and convenient way to get around.
Absolutely no smoking inside the apartment. You are welcome to smoke on our big porch.
We had a great stay in the Downtown Hipster Apartment! It's a quick walk to downtown Asheville. The place was clean and spacious. Can't wait to go back!
We had a terrific experience during our stay at the apartment. The location was great, an easy walk to downtown and the nearby grocery stores were a welcome convenience. Reid was most hospitable, and gave us ideas for restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable and made a great base for our visit to Asheville. In particular, the porch was a very restful place to unwind. We would certainly stay there again if our travels take us back to this delightful spot.
We had a great experience at Reid's "Downtown Hipster Apartment" in Asheville. It was a great space for 2 adults and 1 child.
The kitchen and bathroom were clean. The apartment was right across the street from a Whole Foods (which saved one day's cost in dining out, if that's your thing). The location was near the Moog factory and downtown Asheville. It was a 5 - 10 minute walk from most things, once we understood the city's layout.
We stayed two weeks in this charming little apartment. We really loved our time here. The apartment is the ground floor of a house with three apartments. While there are two apartments upstairs we rarely heard very much noise. The house is over 90 years old with all the charm of hardwood floors, thick molding, and a garden out front. Like most such homes there are some cracks in the plaster, but these added to its charm for us. There is good a/c but no washer/dryer. We instead went to the nearby Fiesta Laundry. Literally across the street is agree life/Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Harris Teeter grocery stores. Our host Reid also kindly let us snag some fresh herbs from his garden. Downtown Asheville is a short 10-15 min walk past the Moog synthesizer museum/factory. We would definitely stay here again.
Reid was terrific and extremely accomodating. We had no need for anything extra, nor any special requests, but Reid would have been there in a heartbeat to make us comfortable. Our experience left us wanting to again use the AirBnB service again in the future, probably whenever we take any sort of trip.
The property was clean and stocked. The towels were high quality and there was plenty of room to be comfortable. It felt like home.
Apartment was great. Conveniently located and very comfortable. Had everything I needed right from arrival. Would be happy to stay there again if my plans brought me back to Asheville.
Reid was very on the ball and responded right away with our questions about parking. Parking was super easy - he provided a resident hang tag and there was plenty of space right in front of the house. The apartment is comfortable and quaint with some vintage charm. The location is convenient - right across the street from a grocery store, and an easy 10-15 minute walk into downtown. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe. We enjoyed our stay!
