Response from Doug:
Simon is a great guy. He got back to me right away even though I booked his huge house a couple of days before arriving. It was a fantastic choice because his place is like something out of a magazine or movie. It's on a huge piece of property looking at the beautiful North Carolina mountains. The historic downtown of Hayesville is just down the road, and a large food market is very close by. The house is really amazing. It looks historic, yet is brand new. Everything was super clean and clutter free and I was very comfortable. You'll have everything you need, and Simon is very accommodating and kind. I recommend driving a way to Murphy to see its downtown as well, or going east to the National Parks. Here you'll be near everything you need, yet feel like you're in the middle of nowhere...it's amazing. I have zero complaints and would return in a heartbeat. I'm amazed Simon doesn't charge more. This is an amazing deal. I highly recommend Simon's place, and I recommend him as a host and great part of the airbnb community. Thanks Simon!
