"I have been an enthusiastic AirBnb renter for three years and Kathie is by far the most generous and accommodating host I've met. The neighborhood is hilly and beautiful with lovely mature trees. Downtown is a quick drive or a good walk and the bike path is right down at the bottom of the hill. The apartment is charming and quintessentially Asheville with lots of quirky, adorable character. Kitchen is small but provides everything a traveler would need. Bedroom is airy and comfortable and the bathroom has an inviting claw foot tub that makes me wish I would have had time for a soak. Everything is clean and well appointed, and the selection of books and magazines is terrific. Kathie is so warm and friendly. I had such a nice chat while she watered the garden. I really cannot say enough good things about my visit and I'm already looking forward to coming back!" Mary, Apartment #2

"My wife and I had a great time in Asheville last week. Cathy's house is wonderful. The rooms are all clean, comfortable and warm! The garden is also delightful. The neighborhood is residential with many beautiful houses and it is very quiet and peaceful. The walk to the town center is about 25 mins and is pleasant. We felt very safe walking home late at night. Cathy is a great host, very welcoming and flexible. She was always available for questions and was very helpful." Chris, NYC
"Imagine a quiet and stately neighborhood, easy access to one of the top destinations in the country for fantastic food and breweries, and a host who can't be beat in her hospitality or her lovely disposition. This was our experience for the four days we stayed at Kathie's beautiful home. Every little detail one could want was provided in Kathie's home - coffee, juices, organic free-range eggs in the fridge, luxurious towels and bed linens, etc. There was great conversation, as Kathie is just a really good person (also loved meeting one of her personal friends). Kathie respected our time and afforded us plenty of privacy as well, which we spent in our lovely apartment and Kathie's back yard. Would definitely stay with Kathie again. She's like a friend you didn't know you had. Kathie's communication could not have been beat. She was very responsive and communicated in whichever way worked for us. I highly recommend staying with Kathie if you travel to Asheville". Elizabeth, 2016

When needed, Kathie is only an email away. She makes a special effort to not be intrusive but is close in touch if something is needed. Guests might see her working in the garden. There are times, even though she's on site, guests may not necessarily run into each other...just the way the apartments are situated. She will check in periodically but won't intrude on your privacy. For those looking to possibly move to Asheville, she has 30 years of experience living in Asheville and would be happy to share information on neighborhoods, real estate agencies, etc.

I have travel in my blood and meeting folks from all over the world is a passion. Some favorites places I've traveled include: Lagos de Atitlan, Uxmal, Merida, San Cristobal, Antigua, Ambergris Caye, Chichicastengo, Amsterdam, Vancouver, Cologne, Berlin, Reykjvik, Prague, Dingle Peninsula, and Tortola. I prefer to travel off the "gringo trail".
I am a passionate student of compassionate communication (NVC). Two important things I've learned is that other people's behavior rarely has anything to do with me and that with patience and compassion, most all our needs can be met.
For fun around here I have ridden a hot air balloon over our mountains, taken a mountain top zip line tour nearby, seen our ancient mountains during a flying lesson, rented a scooter to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway, taken a few archery lessons so I could pretend to be like Katniss from The Hunger Games, which was filmed nearby. What do you like to do for fun? Let me share more fun things to do in our beautiful mountains. After booking I'll send you a long list of some of my favorites.
