Hilltop Haven - July 2024
The Carolina Mornings team has done an outstanding job helping us launch and manage our rental! We couldn't be happier with their level of service.

 We've received almost all 5-star reviews from guests and our place is consistently booked. We know that wouldn't be possible if the Carolina Mornings team wasn't doing an amazing job keeping the place clean and making sure guests have everything they need to enhance their stay.

I cannot say enough about how helpful the entire team is, from the marketing and housekeeping people to the property management & reservations team. They have exceeded our expectations. Thank you Carolina Mornings!

Stairway to Heaven - April 2024
We just want to take this time to complement everyone on their efforts in managing our property. We appreciate everyone! Including the guy that picks up the trash when needed.

Especially wanna mention housekeeping and maintenance because without these two very vital components of the operation, it is very difficult to be exceptional. Maintenance and housekeeping is the first impression to five stars.

I monitor our reviews internally and externally, and you all should be giving yourselves an A+. I know Hayden cleans our property, he does a great job! He focuses on the detail and takes his time. He is never in and out of that our property!

This is a very competitive market and I hope you all continue to strive to be the best!!! Continue to focus on property owners that want to give guests an exceptional experience!!!

March 2024 Follow-up 
I just wanted to put a couple of good words in for some of your awesome staff. The cleaners at our home are probably the best cleaners we have ever seen and are just phenomenal. Also, your reservations team was amazing for checking to see what time the current guests were checking out since we have a crew of tree guys coming in this morning to try to beat the weather. All in all, you've you've really developed an awesome staff there at Carolina Mornings. We appreciate you!

Frogmore Estate

Frogmore Estate - November 2022
When we switched management companies to Carolina Mornings, we had hopes of a better experience, and Katie got us excited about the switch.

What we were hoping for was better communication, consistency, and less headaches. We have gotten all of that in a way that has exceeded our expectations. The big bonus is that we made more money this summer than we did last summer.

We are very happy with Carolina Mornings. The team there are wonderful at their jobs and really lovely folks who I'd love to hang out at a barbeque with. I would love to single someone out for being exceptional, but basically everyone has been a pleasure to work with.

Montford Cottage - August 2022

I really appreciate all of the efforts that CM makes, on our behalf. Terri and I are both very pleased with CM and all the efforts that you make for your clients. Keep up the good work!!!

Wilderness Ridge - February 2017

Storybrooke Place

Storybrooke Place -  April 2016
As an owner of a vacation property that we truly consider our dream second home and a professional in the real estate industry, I can communicate with confidence that Carolina Mornings is a class act! You can tell a lot about a company based on the tenure of its employees, their attitude, and overall organizational culture. In my capacity as a previous business owner and now as a member of market leadership for a Fortune 500 company I am consistently impressed with the people, systems, and processes, and most importantly the results of the Carolina Mornings team. Our family values our relationship with each of the important team members that all collectively work towards the common purpose of providing a fantastic guest and ownership experience.

Ellington Loft - April 2016
I've been with Carolina Mornings for almost two years and I have to say, it was a great decision to go with them to manage my property. Carolina Mornings is a very well run company - extremely professional, conscientious and they are focused on their owners and ultimately the guests. My successful experience with them started with the onboarding process. They focused on getting to know my property and what was important to me - and they've had great suggestions along the way. My property has been more successful than I ever dreamed possible and I attribute that in large part to Carolina Mornings. I recommend them highly.

Former Property Owners (Properties Under Contract/Sold):

Asheville Starry Night - Owner - May 2018:
"It was with some trepidation that we decided to place our home on the rental market. At first, we were with another management company who paid lip service to our guest’s experience. The final straw broke when it was our turn to be on vacation in the house and it was filthy! Stains on the carpet everywhere, a notebook from a prior guest between the sheets, dirty kitchen items in the cabinets. Since we didn’t want to spend the next vacation “managing the managers” we switched to Carolina Mornings. They invested a lot of time in getting the marketing right and learning what needed to be managed in our home. The results have been wonderful and the guest reviews prove it! In very objective terms, there is a measurable improvement in every aspect of our rental property, including higher quality renters. Thank you Carolina Mornings."

Sweet Retreat - Owner - February 2017:

"I wanted to thank you guys for all your efforts in 2016. We received the highest amount of rentals ever for our cabin. We know that your efforts and God's blessings have made this happen. We appreciate all you do and hope you have an amazing year in 2017."

Luna Blue - Owner - January 2017:
"We found Carolina Mornings in the best way possible - a personal reference from a trusted customer. We agreed with the referral for over a year with the great compliments for Carolina Mornings. As we were new to the vacation home process, the team helped us all along the way. They had a great balance between the business side (talking about things like VRBO, Search Engine Optimization, insurance, credit card payments) and the personal touch (with advice on decor and bedding and seasonal trends). The real superstar was the maintenance team. They quickly handled any issues and really got the property up to par (and above) before we put it on the market. Since they are local, they are in a position to quickly respond to after-hour issues if needed. Additionally, Katie was our single point of contact for anything we needed as we set up for business and advice along the way. The results we received from the reservation team were also top notch - having a call center that has access to many properties of many types is a benefit to their customers as well as to us. They are able to know the properties and guide guests to the right location to meet their needs. And because of their good work, we have received at our property (Luna Blue) some absolutely wonderful write-ups from the guests that stayed there. Thank you, Carolina Mornings."

Lake Serenity - Owner - May 2016:
"Lake serenity is a family home which also serves as a vacation rental in order to maintain the upkeep. This is not just an investment, it is a home that represents an emotional connection to us. We searched out Carolina Mornings after being unsatisfied with another property manager. We were immediately impressed by their operation. All the staff is professional and accommodating. Carolina Mornings has provided my family and our home with a service that protects us, and advocates for our interests. They managed to keep the process relatively painless, while successfully booking our place."

Eagle's Wing Lodge - Owner - April 2016:
"We have been represented by Carolina Mornings since 2004, and continue to be happy with the thorough, profitable, personal, . . . and warm!. . service."

Moonlight Ridge - Owner - January 2016:
"Thank you again for your help in dealing with the house you are very good at what you do and I am so pleased to have you as a trusted contact, I feel so much better knowing you are looking out for our home!"

Hibernation - Owner - March 2013

"To All the Staff at Carolina Mornings,
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL for all your efforts and all that you do. Collette and I are so very grateful.
Happy and Healthy 2014 to you all."
-The Owners of Hibernation

Truly Breathless - Owner - July 2013
"You guys are on FIRE! Thanks! Champagne is on the way!"

Doolittle Mountain Cabin - Owner - March 2013:
The owner at Doolittle Mountain Cabin called today and took the time to thank everyone for everything we do. Keep it up!

Eastern Sky - Owner - December 2018:
"It has been great to work with Carolina Mornings this year. I love the recent marketing tactics as they have kept the calendar filled. The home itself looks as good now after a year as it did the first day of renting it! It is kept very clean. Additionally, the revenue has increased every month. I recommend this company to anyone thinking of having a vacation rental home. I don't have to lift a finger - they do it all!"

Cool Stream - Owner - March 2017:

Upon selling Cool Stream to a residential buyer, the owner of the home called the Carolina Mornings Team to share his thanks and appreciation for the years of partnership:

"The owner called to say a BIG Thank You to everyone at Carolina Mornings. During the years he has been a part of the Carolina Mornings Family, he has enjoyed working with each department. Everyone has been courteous and very helpful and he has never had to worry about being an absent owner."

Luck's Hideaway - Owner - December 2016:

"Thanks much for all your firm did for Lesli and I. It was a great experience working with your firm and Katie was a class act for us. If we have the chance to rent another property, your firm would be at the top of the list. Thank you for your kindness and best wishes to you and your staff."

Joyful Moments - Owner - August 2015:

"You and the other administrators have treated us brilliantly, both professionally and personally, from the time that we first contacted Carolina mornings. We appreciate you, to the moon and back."

Cool Stream - Owner - January 2014:

As Cool Stream finished its first year with Carolina Mornings, we touched base with the owner to see how he felt his first year had gone... here's where he had to say!

Carolina Mornings: You have been with us for about a year now. Please share how this year has gone for you being a property owner with Carolina Mornings.

Cool Stream Owner: It has gone very well. There have been minimal problems with upkeep. I have been amazed at how many days it has been rented over the past year! I hope the business stays lively.

Carolina Mornings: Have we met your expectations?

Cool Stream Owner: Carolina Mornings has exceeded my expectations for sure. Again, I give tons of credit to Katie and Larry. They not only helped me get furnishings in and situated... they gave me great advice on what was needed and made sure it got done. Once I was home, I just wrote the checks. They were very careful, though, making a concerted effort to find quality furnishings and fixtures at bargain prices.

Carolina Mornings: It's often said that the best compliment is an endorsement! Would you recommend Carolina Mornings to a friend or family member who was considering owning a vacation rental property?

Cool Stream Owner: I would definitely recommend Carolina Mornings.

Sunrise Knoll - Owner - January 2014:

"My experience with CM and getting on board was exceptional. Everything I needed was explained to me by Katie. If I had a question, all I had to do was contact her. I always got an immediate response. Awesome to work with.

I switched from a long-term unfurnished rental b/c I was tired of doing lease w/ option to buy wasn't working and the property was not being cared for properly. Have always thought the atmosphere of our home would be a great vacation rental home, so we decided we would try the short-term furnished vacation rental.

I would highly recommend CM to friends or family that might be considering owning a vacation rental property. I have another property that will become a vacation rental in the future. I will work with CM to make that property a success as well."

Dreams of Pisgah - Owner - January 2014:
"When I first started investigating renting my house for vacation rentals, the staff at Carolina mornings were very responsive to my questions and struck me as very professional and knowledgeable. They clearly knew what they were doing, and clearly were experts at getting homes prepared for vacation rentals. They made observations that I had not thought of myself and guided me through the whole process rather painlessly. Their website is very professional, easy to navigate, and attractive.

Since my house has been live, I've been very pleased with how things have been going. My house has been kept in good condition, and the staff at Carolina mornings have handled everything. I'm very pleased with how quickly my house has been rented, and the number of rentals I've gotten in such a small period of time. My expectations have been met and then some.

I would definitely recommend Carolina mornings to friends or family."

Banjo Branch Hide-A-Way - Owner:

"I lived in Mars Hill until I joined the USAF in 1967. I always considered it "home" even though my career took me other places to live. I inherited the family home in 2004 and decided to rent it as a vacation destination. This allows me the opportunity to visit when the property is not occupied. My dad had named his home "Hide-A-Way". I helped my dad and mother construct the home in 1964 and had the opportunity to reside there for my last two years in college prior to joining the USAF after graduation.

During my career, I visited "home" at every opportunity. Renting the home was a difficult decision for me. I was not renting just vacation property, I was renting my parent's home. It is still "home" to me. With that in mind, I started my search for a property management company. My residence is a five-hour drive from Mars Hill and I wanted a reliable, professional management company who would understand my sentimental attachment to the home. I found what I was looking for in Carolina Mornings.

My association with Carolina Mornings has been terrific. The staff is professional, friendly, and pleasant to work with. My questions are answered promptly, and I feel comfortable with their management. I can unequivocally recommend Carolina Mornings. My "guest book" comments concerning the home are always complimentary. The comments concern the view, the accommodations, and the cleanliness of the home, the last of which I credit to the excellent housekeepers employed by Carolina Mornings. On the occasions when I visit my property I am always impressed by how well the home looks. I encourage you to utilize the properties managed by Carolina Mornings."

Little Knotty Pine Place - Owners:

"We live in Florida and have this great little place in the mountains to "get away to" a few weekends out of the year. To help cover the cost of utilities and other expenses on our property, we decided to allow others to stay at our little place. That is not an easy venture long distance, so how did we accomplish our task? You have a great company like Carolina Mornings manage your property. They work with us to let us maintain the property as we have the time & means to do so, but are readily available when we need help. The staff is great: courteous, and extremely helpful, always prompt to answer emails. We would like to acknowledge Larry Miller who has been extremely helpful, plus all of the above!

We had used another property management service previously. There seemed to be problems with the company's personal property taking precedent for bookings over our property. We also lost a couple of bookings because their concierge service was unable to get out to our property. Communication was a big problem. These are issues that we have NOT had with Carolina Mornings!"
