We're two Sagittarians - what can i say? We just love people!
Chunns Cove is a world unto itself. We have one neighbor who is barely visible through the trees, otherwise all you can see is a spectacular almost 360 degree view of the valley and woods from the house and private apartment deck. The cove is human-quiet but bird-noisy! We regularly see creatures that you wouldn't expect and could easily mistake this place in summer for a Costa Rican rain-forest! Ingles, our local grocery store, is 2 minutes down the road and Walgreens is 5 minutes away.
The airport shuttle will bring you to the door, there is a bus-stop into Downtown about half a mile away, where you can rent bicycles or you can walk the 2.2 miles into the heart of Downtown. Every direction has beautiful views!

Wow!!! What a wonderful spot!!! Gorgeous views and an amazing space! Not to mention the most professional greeting and orientation I have had. Washer and dryer big tv in the room and breakfast in the morning!!
This was my first time using Airbnb, and it was spectacular. They were very accommodating hosts, and the listing exceeded expectations. We had a most enjoyable trip to Asheville, due largely in part to Marc and Fay. I would most certainly stay there again.
I have had great experiences with Airbnb every single time but I have to be honest--this one topped them all. Fay and Marc are fabulous hosts and made my best friend and I feel like we were the most important guests that they ever had hosted. From booking to check out we were guided through the process with ease and every communication was meticulous and informative.
The accommodations were even better than pictured---every little thing was thought of ahead of time and we felt pampered and spoiled during our stay. The kitchen boasted a fabulous coffee maker that I enjoyed daily along with a full size refrigerator and oven so that if we had chosen to do any major cooking we could have.
There is so much to do in Asheville and it was just a short drive to the downtown area and to the Biltmore. We dined in style and loved all of the information that was in the apartment to help us in our selection.
The hot tub was fabulous, the views incredible, the bed very comfy and the stay was a 5 star stay in every way.
Marc and Fay went above and beyond--even including some lovely chocolates that Marc makes and a gift at check out that made me smile. Their warm and genuine nature made us feel like part of their family. We did not do breakfast at all with them because we were just not going with any set schedule but it all looked amazing and yummy.
I am sure there is another stay here in the future with my husband so as soon as that date is set I will be definitely booking this space. Perfect spot, perfect hosts!
We loved our stay with Marc & Fay! Definitely a 5-star experience. Marc & Fay are very welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel at home in their home. The amenities are fantastic, including hot tub, washer dryer, Netflix and Hulu, and a great breakfast. And Marc & Fay are warm, friendly, and great hosts. They have a wonderful home and we would definitely stay here again during our next visit to Asheville.
Quite simply, our stay at Marc and Fay’s was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Their home is on a private road in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The 2 bedroom apartment was very luxurious, providing us with our every need. It was perfect for our son who slept on a spacious divan, while the bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfy. We especially liked the décor of the place, the modern kitchen with all the amenities for cooking. The hot tub outside on the patio was the perfect temperature for a relaxing soak under the stars at night. Marc and Fay were the most gracious hosts. They served warm homemade croissants, with jam and fresh fruit. We loved the large kitchen bar with swivel chairs for all the guests to congregate together. They made us feel at home and gave us several good suggestions for things to do in the area. The location of their house was very close to downtown Asheville, the Biltmore House, the Arboretum and many other attractions. Also be sure to taste Marc’s exquisite chocolates. He really has an artistic touch. We highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed!
Read the reviews. They are all 100% positive, and they are all 100% correct. Fay and Marc offer the perfect Asheville location for rest and relaxation. The breakfast is a can't miss experience, both for the food and the stories. These two were meant to be hosts, and the pictures don't do justice to how well they have improved the home.
Highly recommend this place to anyone who wants an affordable, private, and comfortable getaway very close to Asheville.

Well-immersed in the pastry and chocolate world for several decades, there is nothing on Marc’s list of culinary delights that features higher than chocolate and coffee. Playing a considerable role in both gutting and rebuilding this spectacular Chunn’s Cove residence, over the last year, Marc has conclusively proved that watching informative and directional Home Improvement Shows for the best part of adulthood, is akin to learning a new language. Born in Quebec, Marc’s native tongue is French but his English rivals any native tongue and his Spanish makes him trilingual. Not without her artistic inheritance, Fay’s world is defined as a pleasurable balance between entrepreneur and artist, commencing with a decade of international business travel in her 20’s, evolving to a decade of motherhood punctuated by a successful decade in the office. Now the time is ripe to spread those four Sagittarian wings for this highly motivated couple, eager to explore exciting new ventures.
