About this listing
Spacious, comfortable one-bedroom apartment on the lower/basement level of a two-story home. Though it's basement level, there's plenty of natural light through windows that face a wooded area. Short walk from "downtown" West Asheville.
Our downstairs apartment has its own private entrance and a nice view of the woods out back.
The apartment includes
- A private bedroom with full-sized bed, closet
- Bathroom with tub and shower
- Kitchenette (two-burner stove, sink, and mini-fridge)
- Small table and chairs for dining/coffee/work
- Couch and comfy chair in the living/yoga room.
We can blow up a full-sized aerobed if you have more than two people in your party, but ask for an additional $15/person for more than two guests.
We have wifi but no cable or television.
If you're staying two or more nights, you'll get a gift card for Sunny Point. All guests will have coffee, tea, creamer, and a mini-fridge full of local beer and wine available on the honor system.
Private entrance to downstairs apartment, which includes a bedroom with full-size bed, bathroom, living/yoga room, and kitchenette with mini-fridge. We ask that folks respect our neighbors and not wander the community. Guided tours can be arranged with some notice.
Interaction with Guests
We just like to meet you, but will otherwise leave you alone.
You'll be in the heart of West Asheville - a neighborhood of artists, musicians, young families, and all the color for which Asheville is beloved.
We're within a short walk of:
- West Asheville Yoga Studio
- Local pubs (Universal Joint, Westville Pub, Altamont Brewery, WALK, Isis)
- Very, very good coffee (Odd's Cafe, Waking Life)
- Darn good food (West End Bakery, Nona Mia/Ritrovo, Sunny Point).
In addition to everything within a 1.5-mile walking radius, we're a quick drive from downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate, and the French Broad River at Carrier Park (where you can put your kayak or tubes in and float all day).
We have off-street parking available for one visitor car. If you have more than one car, you'll find ample available street parking in the neighborhood. Buses are available within a 5-min. walk.
Other Things to Note
We live in a co-housing community and are very close with our neighbors. We ask that folks not wander around the community, out of respect for our neighbors. Guided tours are available.
Heat is radiant floor heat, so cannot be quickly adjusted. We usually keep it around 72 during the winter. If you'd like it warmer or cooler, please let us know ahead of time so we can set it with enough time for the space to adjust.
We've been getting a lot of reservation requests from brand new Air BnB members who haven't bothered to fill out their profiles. Please fill out your profile. This is our home and we want to be able to do some sort of screening before we say yes. A photo helps, as do the various verifications and a short bio. We're unlikely to feel comfortable welcoming you into our guestroom for several days if all we have to go on is a first name, as you probably wouldn't if it were your house.
We live upstairs and work fairly normal schedules M-F (one of us works from home), and also have a new baby, so just ask that you not be loud past 10pm.
Since this is a co-housing community, where we are close with our neighbors, we ask that you respect the grounds and property - close the gate when you come and go, etc.
Mini-fridge honor bar has local beer and wine available for suggestion of $3/drink. $10 full six-pack or wine bottle.
More than two people are welcome, however there will be a $15/person per night fee for each additional person beyond two.
