The space

A peaceful retreat awaits you in the trees just outside of West Asheville's "locals" downtown! Walkable to Haywood Rd and all our excellent neighborhood restaurants, art and yoga studios, farmers market and pubs. Or you can borrow a bike from us and zip into town.

This is a quiet place to write and rest or just commune with the big oaks around your private deck. The studio apartment is below the main house which has its own entrance and outdoor space. Our family lives above and we are very respectful of your privacy. The studio is SMALL one room space (12x15) but well equipped with a hot plate, under counter fridge, small table and 2 chairs and a queen size bed. You have your own small bathroom with 3x3 shower and toilet. Bathroom sink is in kitchenette. A laundry room is right next door and is also available.

If you are looking for an unique space that is peaceful and quiet but part of a vibrant creative community you will enjoy staying with us and we will enjoy hosting you!

Guest access

Your little studio apartment is private and overlooks only trees. You will have your own parking spot, use of the bikes, an outdoor area with table and chairs, use of the laundry room, your own fast wifi separate from the house and of course your own kitchenette and bath.

Interaction with guests

We will be available to greet you and answer any questions you have about the area when you arrive most of the time. If we are not available, keys, maps and our suggestions will be left for you. We live above so you can easily ask us any question you might have or get help if needed.

The neighborhood

West Asheville is the best! Quiet and neighborly, it's not like downtown Asheville with hotels and so many tourists but you can get there or the parkway or the Biltmore very quickly by car. Downtown, five minutes, everywhere else, ten minutes. We have our own downtown in West Asheville and there's many excellent restaurants and music venues within walking or biking distance.

Getting around

We recommend cars or bikes for getting around. There's two River parks nearby for walking or running. The Hominy Creek trail and Hominy creek River park.

Other things to note

The studio has heat, but no air conditioning. There are two doors with screens that provide ventilation. Typically the space stays cool as the house is shaded by big trees, but if air conditioning is a must please choose a listing that provides it.

What an amazing modern design. Sitting on the back deck makes one feel they are in the mountains yet you are less than a mile from great music and food venues.

Beautiful room with amazing scenery out of the large window. We tended to walk into west asheville every day to visit shops, restaurants, and bars; it was about a mile to get into town. We LOVED Sunny Point Cafe, highly recommend for a delicious brunch and yummy drinks. When we used Uber to visit downtown and the breweries, it was a very short and inexpensive ride. Our room had everything we could need, including a helpful binder of suggested hikes, restaurants, and attractions. Overall it was the perfect long weekend!

Jakob and Maria's place is the perfect getaway. My girlfriend and I traveled from Orlando, and it was a great change of pace. Each morning we opened the blinds and enjoyed the view while drinking coffee in bed. I highly recommend this place to anyone that needs a break from work or life in general. Downtown is amazing, and the people are extremely friendly. 5 stars all the way!

Our stay with Jakub and Maria was absolutely lovely! The space is beautiful, full of natural light and very comfortable. It was a great central location to easily explore the area. The bed is great!

Peaceful and relaxing. Location provides easy access to West Asheville by foot or car, and the rest that Asheville and surrounding mountains have to offer, with a 2 minute drive to the highway.

Jakub & Maria User ProfileJakub & Maria is a superhost.

Jakub and I have two children, a boy and a girl. As a family we like hiking, mounting biking, travelling, creating art, reading and spending time with friends. While traveling we prefer to stay away from hotels and are always looking for unique accommodations that enhance our experience of a place. In return we are excited to share our home with others as well. We feel it is a special place and we hope you will enjoy it. What we most love about our house is its openness, the view of the trees, the quiet and the light.
