Like a second home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Asheville and stayed for a month for my daughter's wedding. After just a couple of days we felt totally at home and looked forward to coming back after each day of wedding stuff and sight seeing. Several days we decided not to go anywhere and just stay at "home". We loved it and hope to return when we visit our daughter and (hopefully soon) grandchildren. :)

Just perfect :)

  • 5 of 5

I never did a VRBO before. I always stayed in hotels but this was so much fun. It was so cozy and felt more like being at home. The owners were nice and gave us some good recommendations for food and things to do. Stay here. It's great. I loved it.

Our second visit- even better than the first.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Sparrow so much that when fate brought us back to Asheville for a quick second trip we naturally chose to go back. The owner is very accommodating and easy to reach. In the in-between time she had already made improvements! We loved having everything we needed to make ourselves at home. This quaint apartment is very Asheville - unique, cozy, and comfortable. Love the Sparrow! Love the location! Love the welcoming host.

Great stay in a clean, well decorated and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our two adults and 12 year old daughter enjoyed staying at the apartment. It felt newly rehabbed, very well decorated, and super clean. The wood floors, arched entrances, original door frames gave the unit a charming and warm vibe. The neighborhood was residential. It was quiet and felt very safe. The unit was on a slope so only the front door and windows were accessible from the street. The front door was very sturdy with a very good deadbolt. (These are paranoid observations from an ex-Miami resident.) On street parking was easy to find. Wi-fi was fast, easy to connect with no interruptions. TV service was ample with lots of choices and a dvd player. The kitchen was well stocked with new appliances. And the host was very accommodating and easy to contact with a fast response time. We would definately return.

Wonderful stay at The Sparrow! Very comfy. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Sparrow. We had everything we needed for our visit. Located in a lovely art deco building on the north side of the city the Sparrow was very clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed. The mattress was comfy and there was plenty of closet room. The owner is easy to reach and very accommodating. We had plenty of space, and a functional kitchen to prepare meals. It's an easy walk to local restaurants, or into the downtown area. The TV provide a good variety of stations, and internet was a welcome addition. It was a very short drive to theaters, breweries and night spots (the cold weather during our stay meant we opted for the drive but it is very walkable to town.). Grocery stores are very close and the proximity to UNC is great. We felt very much at home and look forward to our next stay. We will be back for sure! When you come don't miss the farmers market, live entertainment spots, beautiful vistas, museums, breweries, dancing, and all the quirkiness that makes Asheville unique.

Great property but needs a new bed!!!

  • 4 of 5

We mostly enjoyed our stay in the sparrow property. The apartment was one of 4 in small building, 2 upper and 2 lower. The apartment was very clean and well equipped! It was cold at night during our stay and the heat was plenty adequate. The kitchen was nicely equipped and spotless. The showers were hot and bathroom was very clean! We walked to downtown all 4 days of our stay. It was not a bad hike even though it is hilly. We enjoyed breakfast at Homegrown around the corner! Owner communication was excellent! We would love to give 5 stars, but our only complaint was the bed. I have not slept on one that uncomfortable, besides a sofa bed, in many, many years! I don't expect a tempur pedic mattress, but this was not the least bit comfortable, and was very squeaky too. I'm admittedly particular about pillows and did not find the ones available at all comfortable either. This is a great property otherwise, but a good night's sleep would have made it tremendous!

Owner's Response: We really appreciate the positive review, and for mentioning the bed. Guests usually say the beds are super comfortable, so we looked into it immediately. It was an easy fix and the bed feels great now. One of the supporting posts underneath became loose/misaligned and needed to be put back in place and secured. I’ve asked new guests about the comfort of the bed, and they have been very pleased. Thank you also for complimenting our great communication. All guests are welcome and encouraged to contact us – day or night – with problems or concerns. We would have welcomed the opportunity to check the bed when you first noticed it was a problem and fixed it at your convenience. Also, we offer a variety of firm, medium and soft pillows in the hallway closet so you can choose the right ones for you. While problems are very rare, it’s important to us to address those that do come up right away. The quality and comfort of your stay is very important to us.  It’s wonderful to read that you enjoyed the apartment and the close proximity to downtown. Having the Homegrown restaurant on the corner is a highlight for many of our guests. It’s one of our favorite places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We're glad you liked it.
