Coming in just a moment....
Our 1st AirBnB- the Sanctuary was perfect in every way! Ben was very accommodating and prompt to answer my questions prior to our arrival. As promised, this was a great location for exploring Asheville - just a quick walk into town.
We absolutely LOVED the house, so warm, cozy and comfortably inviting. Morning coffee in the "common area" was a perfect way to begin each day.
The beds were super comfortable & our room overlooked the garden area. We would have loved to stay longer just to sit and take in the calm atmosphere of the Santuary- it is an incredible place!
Ben is awesome. He made us feel comfortable and was accommodating. He gave great recommendations for what to do in town including food and yoga classes. The house is gorgeous and the property is magical. We felt at home...and the beds were sooooo comfortable. We'll be back!!!
The house is even prettier than the pictures! Ben was amazing and made our stay (even my dogs) an unforgettable experience! I would love to go back in the Summer and see the yard in full bloom! I highly recommend anyone visiting the Asheville area stay with Ben!!!
I went to Asheville to meet family members and hang out in town. We wanted to be able to park the car and walk everywhere, but most places are just too expensive to justify doing that when all you're going to do is sleep in the room. Ben's place is an affordable alternative, and although it's not right downtown, it is within walking distance--if you like to walk. There's a great food co-op nearby. The room we shared had comfortable beds. Everything was clean and the place met all our basic needs. Oh, and there's great shower in the bathroom. We enjoyed staying in Ben's home and would definitely do it again when visiting Asheville.
My husband, myself, and our pup Buster had a great stay at Ashevillage last week. The location is perfect for being near the downtown area. The house and our room was clean and beautifully designed. Ben was a great host, giving us a tour of the property, chatting about urban farming and sustainable living, and making delicious cups of coffee! We would definitely consider staying here again should we return to Asheville!
We had a wonderful time. The home was a great retreat for our group with ample space and a great ambiance. We really enjoyed the wood stove, the kitchen, touring the grounds, and the lingering friendly kitty. The home was cozy and had everything we needed for our getaway. Ben was helpful and quick to respond to our every need, he even gave us a tour and walked us through the projects in the back of the property. I would absolutely return and reccomend the home to anyone looking for a great getaway for a group of friends or family visiting Asheville.
Ben was super accommodating given my late arrival and room switch. I appreciated my pup being welcome, too. Property has a cool vibe, and close to downtown shops. Thanks Janell & Ben!
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Asheville Sanctuary for a few nights in Dec 2013. The home itself is so completely comfortable. Beautifully decorated with a lot of love and care with lots of plants, natural light, and cozy couches to lounge in front of the fire place. Huge kitchen with all the fixins with space in the fridge in case you want to bring/make food at home. The room itself was great, very spacious with a lovely theme (we stayed in the Sky Room), with an extremely comfy bed and lots of blankets to cozy up and stay warm. As if this weren't enough, the home is a part of an intentional 'urban farm,' a small community of folks that take eco-conscious living to a new level. The way they incorporate aquaponics and sustainability into their living practices is inspirational to say the least. Ben was a phenomenal host, kind and accommodating in response to any request or question we had about our stay or Asheville in general. If we ever have the good fortune of coming through Asheville again, we would definitely plan for a repeat stay.
Great place to stay. excellent proximity to asheville downtown and awesome hospitality from Ben. very accommodating - we'll stay here again if we need a place to stay in asheville
Ben was very flexible and offer quick responses to all my messages. He even made me mint tea when my tummy wasn't feeling good after a bad dinner. I just wish I had more time to stay longer and to tour the grounds. Hoping to go back one day. Thanks Ben!
Ben is a kind and considerate guest. He was a pleasure to get to know and a wonderful guest. He is welcome back anytime.
