Just a 5 minute drive or a 2 mile saunter from Downtown, our luxurious stone & stucco home on a Private Road with an extra-wide driveway to accommodate up to 10 cars, was totally renovated throughout 2013/14. Boasting clean, fresh 7.5PH well-water throughout our spacious home and apartment, your ultimate luxury will be soaking in your private mineral spa, overlooking nothing but woods of trees and a mountainous skyline. Located on the south-side of the house, exceptional apartment views of local wildlife can be seen through picture-frame windows, not limited to frequent sightings of mountain lions, black bears and cubs.
A brand new deluxe Serta queen-size bed will ensure your nights are both comfortable and restful, while your room is fitted with a flat-screen cable TV to catch-up on the ‘other’ world! Both TV’s have access to U-verse on HDMI 1, Netflix & Amazon on HDMI 2 while the bedroom has Roku2 and the living-room has Amazon Fire TV. Marble night-shelves with accompanying power-sockets are ideal for charging your cell phone and your luxurious bedroom boasts a walk-in closet fitted with shelves, drawers and a suitcase stand. Custom wall-lights, a crystal chandelier and a lit marble-topped vanity fitted with an 8x magnification mirror and a professional hair-drier will ensure you look your best when you step out!
The spacious living-room accommodates a second flat-screen TV and sleeps an additional 2 people on end-to-end twin beds (measuring 39" x 6ft) topped with memory-foam in a sleeping-nook fitted with individual reading lights and power-plugs.
The extravagant bathroom is fully tiled with natural pebble accentuations while for your convenience, there is a washer-drier with detergent and laundry hamper as well as shampoo, conditioner and shower-gel.
Gourmet chef designed kitchen, this fully-fitted masterpiece includes granite and marble, a double sink with waste disposal, a ceramic cook-top, a fridge/freezer with ice-maker and an espresso coffee-machine (filled with organic fair trade coffee) complete with detailed instructions..
Sit out in the countryside on your double-lounger or jump in your private ozonated hot-tub and just ask yourself how could you possibly be only 5 minutes from Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate and Mission Hospital?!
Since we are an Organic Household, we are happy to offer complimentary Organic Fair Trade Coffee in both house and apartment in the form of a Latte, Espresso, Cappuccino or Americano with optional decaf, organic cream and local organic honey upon request. We serve complimentary continental breakfast between 8-9am to accommodate any diet, with your coffee or herb tea.
Even though we are only 2 miles from Pack Square, the heart of Asheville, we are essentially in a rural environment and ask that you are respectful of our wildlife and keep a safe distance in the interest of safety.

Interaction with Guests
There are 4 rental units on this 2/3 acre property - we do our best to contribute to the Airbnb philosophy and community by providing complimentary breakfast to enable our guests to meet each other. If you need us, we're available 24 hours a day, you are welcome to call us any time if you have any problem at all and we will be more than happy to address it.
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.
Our favorite dinner restaurants are the Admiral in West Asheville and the Bull & Beggar in the River Arts District for which we recommend reservations but you might find a couple of seats around the bar to order a selection of fabulous plates. Lunch time we are partial to Chai Pani's Indian Street Food which i take with no spices and Doc Chey's is ideal on a tight budget but arrive early or be prepared to wait for a seat.
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!
