Come stay in the spacious 1st floor apartment in this newly renovated turn of the century house in Fifeville. This unique apartment enters through a covered porch and into a private downstairs apartment.
There is an open kitchen/dining room ready for preparing and enjoying your gourmet cooking. Bathroom boasts unique tile-work, claw-foot tub and spacious walk-in shower. The bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed with a new Serta mattress (bought in August 2014). There is a full futon for sleeping an additional two people (located in the dining/living room). We provide all sheets and linens.
The house is divided into two apartments with a double locked door between the two (no access between apartments, you have the downstairs all to yourself).
We generally only accept two night (Friday and Saturday) reservations on the weekends unless it is last minute.
Our house is perfectly situated in a great neighborhood where folks stop to talk on the street and walking/biking is the norm. We are just three blocks from West Main Street, a 10 minute walk to the Downtown Mall, and a 15 minute walk to UVA and the Corner. Extremely convenient to the train and bus stations.
We love animals and understand that you want to bring yours with you, but are also cognizant of the impact that animals can have on a house. Thus, we charge $20/per night for pets (negotiable for longer stays) and also reserve the right to learn more about the size, etc.
We have a stacked washer and dryer available for your use.
Plenty of counter space along with a full fridge, sink, dishwasher, microwave, gas range and convection oven. Perfect for making a quick snack, breakfast or a home cooked dinner. We keep the kitchen stocked with everything you need for cooking and enjoying a nice meal (no food).

Oliver grew up in Charlottesville and we have both lived here for the past eight years. This apartment is in a house that we renovated and maintain for Natasha’s parents. They live here during the winter and we rent it out during the summer and select weekend in the Spring and Fall.
This house also has an upstairs studio apartment. The neighborhood is quiet and we encourage our guests to keep the rough-housing at the bars and keep the noise down inside past 10:00. Inquire about renting out the entire house.
The newly renovated property provided a very welcoming atmosphere. We chose this property given its location (within walking distance of the Charlottesville downtown mall) to get a feel for what it would be like to live in Charlottesville, and the property did not disappoint. It really felt like a home to come back to at the end of the day. The host communicated well with us leading up to and after our stay to make sure that we were satisfied. We would gladly recommend this property to a single person or couple looking for a cozy stay near downtown Charlottesville.
This place is a must stay!!! We had the most wonderful weekend at Oliver’s property. The apartment is gorgeous, clean, homey, and in a perfect location. Faith was outstanding and I appreciated her communication and checking in via text. Our dog came on the trip too and loved the property as much as we did. The house is walking distance to plenty of restaurants, UVA campus, downtown mall, and just a few blocks the Amtrak station. This charming place is a must see and I am grateful to have stayed there! Thanks again!
The apartment was very well-kept and clean when we arrived. The neighborhood was generally quiet and we felt safe walking to West Main Street or to the Mall. The space is small, but adequate. If someone is staying upstairs you will hear them walking around and talking, but it is not terribly loud.
The apartment was lovely and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again.
Great apartment, very cozy. Close to the main drag with restaurants and shops. Oliver's neighbor Faith was who we corresponded with about arrival/departure and other logistics. She was very helpful and responsive via email. We had a relaxing/easy stay while we were there. We wold definitely recommend the apartment to others.
My wife and I had a great stay at Oliver's great place. As a UVA alum, my wife loved begin within walking distance to the downtown mall and the corner, but along a quiet and private street. The apartment was lovely; very clean, charming and with everything we needed. While we were only there a weekend, we both said we could have easily stayed a week or more in the apartment and been totally comfortable. The kitchen is great with updated appliances, the bathroom is large (plenty of room for 2 people to get ready for a night out at the same time), and the bedroom and living room were good sized and comfortable. Faith was very welcoming, and we felt very taken care of. Looking forward to staying here again!
Great apartment with great amenities. Quiet, clean and relaxing. We had a great trip to Charlottesville in part because we enjoyed the apartment so much.

I'm from Charlottesville, Virginia and live there with my wife, Natasha. We live with an exceptional dog (Lika). We have both recently transitioned to working for ourselves in order to have more flexible schedules and allow for more travel! We renovate and rent houses in the urban core of Charlottesville and we are currently in the middle of 10 months of traveling in South America beginning with the World Cup in Brazil! Our friend Faith is helping manage our apartments in our absence.
