FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Almost Bearadise is located in Black Mountain. This home is approximately 5 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and 25 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Almost Bearadise is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Almost Bearadise has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Almost Bearadise has a gas logs fireplace for guests to use. Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit, which is not provided at Almost Bearadise. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Almost Bearadise. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service.

Everything with Almost Bearadise was fantastic!

We gathered three branches of our family together for a wonderful weekend getaway. I was nervous about relying on Internet pics for our space, but the pics splendidly represented this fabulous space. We loved having the huge great room for the whole family, the wonderful deck on which we watched several beautiful sunsets over the mountains, and the well-equipped game room downstairs where lots of old-fashioned video game challenges happened. With four full baths, no one ever had to wait.

The house was clean and orderly and well equipped with everything we needed. Check-in was a breeze as was our final morning leaving. And the local baby equipment rental company (that was familiar with Greybeard Rentals) worked seamlessly in delivering and picking up high chairs and pack&plays we needed for the wee ones. I don't hesitate to recommend this great house!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Great to hear you had a nice family get-together at Almost Bearadise! I'm glad you felt the property was accurately represented and better than expected with excellent sunsets and amenities. Thanks for letting us know how your stay went.

Very Nice Clean House!Practically brand new. Entrance into driveway needs improvement.The a/c systems seemed to blow cold no matter how you adjusted the temperature.The directions to the house need to be revised for they are confusing, i.e. after the first stop sign it should read take a left at next stop sign and not at the 2nd stop sign!Overall we had a very enjoyable experience.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm happy to read the report that you had a nice time at Almost Bearadise! Thanks for your points of improvement. We will review with the team.

This rental home is beautiful and had so much space for my family. The home was clean when we arrived and the views from the decks are breathtaking. The only complaint was the driveway, it was steep and gravel. Thankfully the renters in the home that shared a driveway allowed us to use their paved driveway throughout the week.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for your feedback on your stay at Almost Bearadise. I'm so glad you were pleased with your time there. The owners will be paving the drive way in mid-August and making some driveway adjustments to offer easier access. Thanks for letting us know!

The home and view was absolutely spectacular! Unfortunately Tropical Storm Alberto hit during our vacation so we weren't able to enjoy the hiking and outdoor activities as planned. In fact, it rained so hard we were confined to the house for 3 full days. Having all the amenities on site made for a comfortable stay for our family of 10. My only complaint was that when I called to confirm that it was okay to deposit trash in the outside cans, I was told there was no trash pick up that week so we either had to leave all the trash in the kitchen, or put it in the dumpster at the rental office on trips to town. So we loaded trash bags in our cars. However, on Wednesday a trash truck did come to the house but we hadn't put anything in the cans.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm so sorry all that rain occurred during your stay and caused the conflict with the trash, pickup, activities, etc. Great to hear you enjoyed Almost Bearadise and that wonderful view though!

This house is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. On top of all that, it is an ideal house for multiple generations. The adults were able to have quiet discussion while the elementary-aged children had a blast downstairs with the pool table, basketball game, darts, etc. Would definitely come back. And the view is gorgeous!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Oh good! That's great to hear that Almost Bearadise provided comfortable accommodations for your entire group. It is a very spacious home with plenty of room to spread those views are amazing! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Great, except parking and the driveway needs a serious rethinking. Too steep and dangerous getting or out. The road to the house is treacherous, mostly passing another car. Also the kiterature says fireplace, but it was gas, not wood!!!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm glad you enjoyed your aunts and nieces week at Almost Bearadise. I'm so sorry that the driveway and road up the home was a bit intimidating. While this is the first time we've received this specific feedback for this home, I can understand how the road up to the home may be a bit daunting. Views this great do sometime come with a bit of a climb. :) We mention that the home has gas logs in the description and the amenity selection, but we will look for ways to better define this -- thanks for your feedback! We hope to welcome you back soon.

Update - Thanks for your feedback a few months ago. The owners will be paving the drive way in mid-August and making some driveway adjustments to offer easier access.

Almost Bearadise was perfect for our family Christmas retreat. The kitchen was well equipped, the den and dining area accommodated our family comfortably, and the downstairs game room was awesome not only for our grandchildren but the adults as well. The bedrooms were comfortable and beautiful bathrooms well supplied with bath towels, etc. It was absolutely such a fun five days. We hope to return to your Bearadise in Black Mt. soon. Thank you Greybeard Realty for your making the rental process so easy

Getting all our children together for even a dinner is a challenge, so we planned a weekend in the mountains to make this happen. Almost Bearadise was perfect for this vacation. We loved spending time on the decks enjoying the view. The house itself was extremely clean and comfortable due to its size. The large couch in the great room was perfect for our family of 10. We all loved the decor of the house and it was very clean and comfortable. The location was great too. I would definitely recommend this house. We were very pleased and hope to come back sometime.
