Adorable space opening from a small second floor deck to a living room full of windows, hardwood floors, original tile bathroom floor and ceramic tub, little hall to sweet, eat-in breakfast nook leading to a bedroom with 2 closets, and a comfy captain's bed. Entrance to the apartment is behind the house, up a flight of external stairs (steep, so this is not a good fit for people who have a hard time with stairs) to a deck overlooking yard with shared fire pit, flower and vegetable gardens. Close by are UNCA wooded trails leading to Botanical gardens. Apartment is about than a mile from the outskirts of downtown, and convenient to everything including shops, restaurants, museums, grocery stores, natural foods stores, etc. Short walk from the apartment is a wonderful bakery/market/restaurant where you can get sumptuous food, coffee, and all kinds of culinary treats. Off street parking for one car, (the driveway to the carport is a bit tricky; you need to back out when leaving, or feel free to park on the street in front of the house. Usually there are plenty of spaces there as well.) Washer/Dryer in unfinished basement with separate entrance shared with guests in second apartment. Apartment is fully furnished with tasteful furnishing and art, kitchenette. Comfy fold-out queen sized sofa bed in living room with linens, down mattress topper, and bedding in closet and chest for extra guests. Bedroom has a comfy, queen-sized captain's bed with large drawers for clothes. Please note, we do not offer TV or cable in this apartment, but have a small DVD player with a few movies; there's a Redbox down the street at the CVS if you want to choose other movies. Also, we are happy to share our Netflix password with you during your stay if you bring a laptop, iPad, or other device. Feel free to (responsibly) enjoy the fire pit in the back yard, grill, and hammock. Neat, typical Asheville neighborhood with some historic houses, some new constructions, modern, some families, some students and professionals. Very safe; we have never had any crime here to our knowledge. If you bring a pet, please make sure that your pet is completely flea-free and let us know in advance so that we may assess whether they are a good fit. There is a $45 pet fee. We will only consider extraordinarily well behaved pets. If you have a pet, please put the provided sofa cover over the sofa to protect it from dirty paws and teething jaws. Walls are thick plaster, so not a whole lot of sound carries, yet you may hear some sounds of others and footsteps, or smell cooking, etc. from our side of the house. Just below the apartment is another guest room, so we ask that you please take off shoes when convenient. We have 2 young boys, 2 rabbits, a cat, and a pug. We love kids and babies, but the apartment is not baby-proofed. There are 2 gas heaters, and in the warmer months, we have A/C window units. Please feel free to harvest some fresh herbs from our back yard herb garden, or vegies from our garden boxes. We welcome constructive feedback so that we can make any improvements that will make our guests' stay any more enjoyable. We very much prefer this feedback directly, as apposed to reviews so that we can better understand and remedy any issue that may come up, without unnecessarily alienating others. We try to be fully transparent about the apartment so that you can best make your booking decisions well informed. We have recently moved just around the corner to Montford, and have wonderful permanent resident manager in the main part of the house that can help you with anything that you might need.
