Banjoe Vacations invites you to The West Nest!

Located on Haywood Road in the heart of West Asheville, this cozy yet bright efficiency apartment is walkable/bikeable to restaurants, clubs, music, the River Arts District, breweries and downtown Asheville. Our place is recently renovated and professionally furnished by Village Antiques, with a great patio that offers city and mountain views. The West Nest is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

Our Airbnb is bright, remodeled and is professionally designed and decorated with antiques from Village Antiques in mid-century modern and Japanese styles. We paid extra special attention to our bed, since we personally really value staying in places with comfortable mattresses. We hope that you enjoy it on our patio with city and mountain views.

You will be able to access the entire apartment, with the exception of the owners closet.

If you want to explore West Asheville, there's a great website OnHaywood dot com (spelled out because Airbnb removed the link). This website has links and info on West Asheville restaurants, shops, music venues, clubs and businesses. Haywood Rd is the main street in West Asheville. Our Airbnb is on Haywood Rd, on the east side, between the River Arts District and central West Asheville. Some people call it "East West Asheville" because it is the east side of west Asheville.

Some of my favorite places on Haywood Road are (in no particular order):

Coffee Shops:

Battle Cat

Odds Cafe

Izzy's Coffee Shop


King Daddy's Chicken and Waffles

Sunny Point Cafe

Biscuit Head

West End Bakery

Lunch and Dinner:

West End Bakery (lunch only)

Zia Taqueria

Taco Billy's

Nine Mile (Jamaican Pasta)

Buffalo Nickel

The Admiral (dinner)


Standard Pizza



Oyster House Brewery

Universal Joint

UpCountry Brewing

The Wedge Brewery (River Arts District)

Urban Orchard (cider)

Westville Pub

Music Venues:

ISIS (music and restaurant)

The Mothlight

The Grey Eagle (River Arts District)

Dive Bars:

The Double Crown

Desoto Lounge

The Odditorium


Westvillage Market (organic bodega style store)

Ingles Grocery (conventional grocery store)

I hope this helps, but feel free to let me know if you have questions.

The West Nest is conveniently located and is bikeable to downtown Asheville, walkable to the River Arts District, and of course, it is walkable to everything in West Asheville. Our apartment is on the bus line, so if you want to get around without a car, you've found the right spot!

We are in the center of West Asheville. We think our space is perfect for those who want an urban experience, but not for those travelers looking for a quiet getaway. There is a lumber yard next door (not active at night) and traffic on Haywood Road. It is not loud in the apartment, and not different than any city apartment, but it is not the silent mountain retreat either, so we hope that our guests are looking for a place where they are in the heart of it all.

Sweet, comfortable and quiet - considering there is a lumber supply next door! Several tastey venues within walking distance. Bring a set of bath towels- there are 2 sets provided. Very pleased with this Banjoe Vaca.

Excellent place for a short stay with 2 people. A little tough to find from the street, so make sure you have the instructions handy :) very clean, comfy beds, adorable decor. Bruce was very attentive as well!

It was a perfect location to get to everything we wanted to see.

Good location, and easy in and out. Poor window coverings, and the lighted exit signs did allow for a lot of light at night, so for me that made sleep difficult. Easy to walk to the river arts district, and right in the middle of west Asheville shops and restaurants.

This apartment is across the street from everything you need. Walking distance to coffee shop, tacos, dinner and night entertainment. The kitchen is duly stocked. But really I only used the ice and water out of the fridge.

We only stayed for 2 nights, but this place was perfect for our needs. We were able to walk to some great restaurants and everything else was a short drive. The place itself was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!
