About Elisa Petree

Transplants from Southern California in 1992 we have loved raising our family in the Asheville area. Our eldest, a daughter (24) was married in 2015 and lives in Minneapolis with her husband. Our 21yo son lives and works in Asheville and we have a 13yo soccer fanatic son at home with us. Tim is a licensed General Contractor and Catastrophic Insurance Adjuster. Elisa is an artist/art teacher and stay at home mom. We have restored multiple historic properties in the Asheville area over the last 24 years including a condemned house in the Montford Historic District for which Tim won the prestigious Griffin Award for historic preservation in 2004. Our commitment to faithful restoration is apparent in this property which we fully remodeled and restored inside in 2003 and are gradually restoring on the exterior. While we are new to VRBO we are not new to rental property. We have been landlords for several long term rentals in the area for 24 years, including this apartment, so we know how this rental thing works. We love both stimulating and laid back conversation with our friends and appropriate mood music (we can't live without our Bose SoundDock), good food (esp Mexican) and craft beer and wine. Our love of the outdoors takes us to California's Yosemite National Park for camping every summer and to our family condo on the Gulf Coast as often as we can get there. We enjoy hiking and biking and late night fire pits. We can point you to the usual and the unusual spots in Asheville so just ask. We can make a church recommendation if that's important to you. We attend a come-as-you-are downtown church with great music and you are always welcome to join us. We think we have the best friends in the world and we especially love making new ones. We look forward to your visit!

Elisa Petree purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Elisa Petree chose Asheville Area

We lived in the Montford Historic District in downtown Asheville from 1992-2003. We restored a beautiful Arts and Crafts home that still holds our hearts to this day (If you want to Google it, it's called the Keyhole House, named for its unique sunroom windows). We relocated to this house in 2003 to reduce the commute to our children's school. We lived in the house while we renovated for the first 6 months after we moved in, including being without a kitchen for 5 mo. And we had a 5th and 3rd grader and a newly walking one year old baby! We've enjoyed our proximity to the school and the surrounding area has continued to grow and become a very convenient location to live. We love our large front porch and the views of the park across the street. "Das Peach Pit" is a nod to our house's moniker, "Das Peach Haus" named after my husband's life long nickname "Peach".

What makes this apartment unique

We are centrally located between Asheville (10 miles to the south slope of downtown) and Hendersonville right off of Hendersonville Rd/US25 and Airport Rd.

Easy access to I-26, the Asheville Regional Airport, Sierra Nevada Brewery, Blue Ridge Parkway and the Asheville Outlet Mall, French Broad River, NC Arboretum, hiking and biking trails in Bent Creek and DuPont State Forest,

Travel times to downtown vary with the seasons but Biltmore Estate/Village (8 miles) is generally reached in 15 min and the south slope of downtown Asheville in 20 min.

We can provide daytime pet sitting and arrange shuttle services to and from the airport/downtown for additional fees.

We can also arrange for a trail guide (both hiking and biking). If you desire to try out the biking trails we can help you arrange bike rental.

Please communicate your desires to us and we will help make sure your stay in the Asheville area is the best it can be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Creative use of space and relaxing decor made Des Peach Pit a wonderful place for my doggies and me. I chose it for the close location to Militia Fitness and everything else I needed while in the area. Hospitality + . I'll be back.

Mother/Daughter Weekend in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in several VRBO and Airbnb rentals and this home was one of the best ever. It was the perfect size and set up for my mother/daughter getaway in Asheville. Initially I was attracted to it because of its private entrance and its price. Once I reviewed the details, I was drawn in. When I arrived, the apartment surpassed my expectations. It was impeccably decorated, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. It was well stocked and fully equipped. It was clear there was lots of thought, planning and love that went into the floorplan and decorating. I especially liked that the sleeping area was separate from the rest of the rooms; it offered privacy without closing you in. The space saving features built into the floorplan, were remarkable; i.e. collapsible kitchen table and shelves; lamps attached to the headboard; two tiered closet space. Its location allowed easy access to downtown Asheville the Biltimore, the River Arts District, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This weekend was memorable and fun for both my daughter, who flew down from the North, and me, who drove from the NC beach. The accomodations were perfect and Asheville was fantastic. I would love to come back and would stay here again and would recommend it to my friends in a heartbeat! Maureen

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The perfect little apartment with all the necessities. I will definitely look to book this place again on my next business trip to the Asheville area. The apartment was perfectly located and convenient to everything I needed. I only briefly met one of the owners but he was extremely friendly and offered up his advice on things to do in the area. I frequent the area on business and typically stay in hotels but this time I brought my wife for the weekend as well. It was perfect for a weekend getaway for 2 as well as my week at work solo.

Great stay in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We are grateful to be able to stay at this place during the hurricane. Elisa was able to let us in the same day of our booking. The house is located in a convenient location - close to supermarket, Biltmore and other attractions. The only thing I wish this place has were washer and dryer but we are ok without them too. We want to give a big thank you to Elisa's husband who helped jump start our car on the last day. He heard strange noise from our car so he came down to offer help. We really appreciate his kindness and definitely recommend this place for anyone who want to visit Asheville.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We didn't know the nature of your visit at booking time but are glad we could provide shelter from the storm. Due to space limitations in the apartment we are unable to provide private laundry but we are happy to make our washer and dryer available to guests on an appointment basis, as indicated in our listing and in our Welcome Guest guide. It is adjacent to the apartment. Please just let us know your need and we will set you up!

Wonderful access to all things WNC has to offer! Particularly downtown Asheville, hiking and biking trails on the Blue Ridge Pkwy, NC Arboretum, Bent Creek Experimental Forest and DuPont State Forest where you will see breathtaking waterfalls. Downtown Asheville is a 10 mile drive; a straight shot up Hendersonville Rd (25) which is the main artery connecting all the Asheville area. No directions necessary! We make the drive regularly. Driving times vary depending on the tourist season and time of day. Generally, travel time is about 10 min to the edge of Biltmore Village and Estate entrance and 20 min to the south slope of downtown where you will find the heart of the local brewery district. Downtown Hendersonville is about the same distance in the other direction. We are within a 5-10 min drive of several dozen eating establishments including the dazzling Sierra Nevada Brewery. We are within a 5 min drive of necessity shopping (WalMart, Target, etc) and 10 minutes from the new Asheville Outlet Mall.
