About this listing

Built in 2014, our house is clean and comfortable. It's two stories, 2000 square ft., and designed for privacy and appreciation of nature-on a dirt road in a quiet neighborhood at the edge of a private school campus.

The setting is secluded, close to Rte. 40 and just off Patton Avenue, two miles from the center of West Asheville, four miles from downtown. We're a 15 minute drive to the entrance of the Biltmore Estate, to the North Carolina Arboretum, and to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The space

We have moved our guest room to the first floor immediately adjacent to the bathroom so there are no stairs to navigate, and we have "retired" to the upstairs. A little more privacy for all of us. Many couples have said the guest bed is extremely comfortable. We do not invite you to use our kitchen, but we can make space in the refrigerator for you if you request that. Breakfast is offered on Saturday mornings about 8:30 if you want it, and will be set either on the screened porch or the kitchen island, depending on weather. On other days, enjoy coffee or tea in the morning. Guests are always welcome to use the screened porch for conversation, bird watching or work on your laptop.

Guest access

The downstairs is "open" and you are invited to have breakfast on the back porch or, in inclement weather, at the kitchen island.

Interaction with guests

Santina will greet you at the front door and show you around. Usually we are indoors all evening but guests can stay out as late as you wish. As an Uber driver, Craig is often working but pops in on occasion to chat with guests if they are here. We offer as much information as anyone wants, and recommendations for restaurants and activities the guests might enjoy.

Other things to note

Please give your ETA at least 36 hours before your arrival DAY, and then update. Please remove shoes on the front porch before entering. Bring house shoes, slippers, or walk in socks inside.
Please check in at an agreed upon time between 3:00 and 9:00 p.m., whatever time we arrange, and leave by 10:00 a.m.

Response from Santina:
Well, technically we are in West Asheville, and two miles from Hayward Road, where the restaurants etc. are. Thanks for your review!

Santina and her husband Craig are fantastic at hosting. We highly recommend them. They have a wonderful house and add the extra touch in amenities. We were delighted that when we arrived after a long drive to be offered a nice cup of tea and or a beer. :)

Amazing house tucked away in the woods but also very close to downtown Asheville. Santina is a great host! She gives you privacy - you have the whole first floor bedroom/bathroom/back porch area available to you. She also made coffee for us in the morning. Could not have asked for a more idyllic house to stay at, and Santina was great!

Both Santina and her husband were such a generous hosts. Their beautiful home felt like it came out of a fairytale and their delicious Saturday morning breakfast was such a treat. They were were so incredibly kind and made our night in Asheville a delight. Would highly recommend them to anyone staying in the Asheville area!

Craig and I moved into our newly constructed West Asheville home in May 2014. Santina is a retired psychotherapist who loves gardening, cooking, and meeting with friends. Craig is an Uber driver as well as a photographer/personal historian.

Our home is a wooded oasis just 2 miles from the center of West Asheville and 4 miles from downtown. Deer, wild turkeys and rabbits are frequent visitors.
