About this listing

My historic downtown home is extremely comfortable, clean and stylish. It's the perfect spot for those who want easy access to downtown (exactly a half mile walk) and a peaceful setting to come home to.

*** PLEASE NOTE: THE STAIRS FROM THE STREET UP TO THE APARTMENT ENTRANCE ARE LONG AND STEEP. KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS OR JUST DON'T WISH TO CLIMB STAIRS. SEE PHOTO***

PARKING:
-Street parking is available and free (no meters).
- There's usually room right in front of the house; sometimes you may have to park JUST A TINY BIT up the street.
- In my 3+ years of hosting, I've never had a guest who couldn't find a parking place either directly in front of or extremely close to the house.
-If you prefer access to a dedicated, off street parking place, please consider another property.

MY PRESENCE:
-I live upstairs. There is a door (at the top of the spiral stairs pictured in this listing) which remains closed and locked, separating your space from mine.
-I have my own entrance, separate from yours, so apart from an initial greeting you won't have any interaction with me unless you need something.
-I'm very conscientious about keeping things quiet in the house. The floor is sturdy, and I don't wear shoes inside so you won't be bothered by creaky floors or loud footsteps overhead. You will be aware of, but not disturbed by, my presence in the house.

Interaction with Guests

I am available if you need me, I live on the premises.

The Neighborhood

-My neighborhood, typically called the East End, sits directly adjacent to downtown. You can see downtown. You can walk there. Unless you are wearing stilettos. Or unless you just don't want to walk a half mile.
-My neighborhood is eclectic, lively and friendly. I know all of my neighbors. Residents are a mix of newcomers to the area and people whose families have lived in the same house for many generations.
- My neighborhood is cool and funky.
-My neighborhood is not fancy and swanky. PLEASE, don't rent from me if you wish to be surrounded by cookie cutter houses with manicured lawns. I love my neighborhood. I want to rent to people who will enjoy it as I do.

House Rules

This is a non-smoking rental. Also, no candles or incense.
Due to the fact that there is a steep set of stairs on the premises, please take extra precautions, especially if you have children.
Have a good time by all means! However I do ask that the noise level be kept within reason. I don't mind at all if you keep late hours, and hopefully you fully enjoy the Asheville night life. That being said, this is not a "party house". Common sense etiquette is respectfully requested.
I'm an open minded person and if you have any special needs or requests just let me know, I'll do my best to accommodate.
