The Space

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. There is a full futon for sleeping an additional two people (located in the dining/living room). We provide all sheets and linens.

Location
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.

Pets
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.

Laundry
We have a stacked washer and dryer available for your use.

Kitchen
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).

  • Great place, great location. Would recommend to others.

  • Oliver's place was perfect. I was traveling for work and it was nice to be in a place that felt like a home. The unit is attached to the main house and has it's own separate entrance with porch, a spacious living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Even a washer dryer. All modern yet very charming. Everything was set up as deceived when I arrived and I had no issues. Thanks for a great stay! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

  • Oliver's place was wonderful for it's beautiful floors, bath, and kitchen. We also loved sitting on the screened in porch and being a 10 minute walk away from dinner!

  • Oliver and Faith were extremely helpful and prompt.

    The house was just as it looked in the pictures. We thought the neighborhood was very convenient and were able to walk everywhere. The house had everything we needed for our stay and the screened in porch was great for the evening.

    The furniture in the living room could be a little more comfortable and conducive to sitting around and talking. Other then that everything was great.

  • Decent location within short driving distance of where we needed to go to Charlottesville. Property was clean and private.

  • My husband and I stayed at the Fifeville apartment for a week while I attended a workshop at UVA. It's an easy 20 minute walk from campus in a quiet neighborhood. Also easy walking distance from downtown restaurants. The apartment itself is *beautiful*. The renovations are gorgeous, it's spotlessly clean, washer/dryer, AC, awesome kitchen with new appliances. We had a great visit and I will definitely stay here in the future.

  • Another great Airbnb experience. Oliver's apartment was lots of fun. Great location, perfectly laid out, pet friendly and yes, a great shower! Very good communication and a really great experience overall. Highly recommended.

  • This was our first airbnb experience and all we can say is this place was more than we could have ever expected. It was clean, spacious, and charming. It offered us easy access to all Charlottesville has to offer, but also gave us a quiet place to just hang out. We would love to stay here again!

  • What a lovely flat & conveniently located between The University & The Downtown Mall! The Mills were wonderful hosts & very accommodating. I live in the area, but needed a place to hide The Bride before her the big day. This Fifeville nest was perfect for the two of us & I've gotta admit I had a hard time leaving. The apartment is outfitted with everything one might need for a long weekend or extended stay: coffee maker, utensils for cooking & eating, washer/dryer, a WONDERFUL shower & of course the charming claw foot bath tub. The neighborhood is quite & walking distance from some great eateries: Maya, 3 Penny Cafe, Feast! & Public. The only thing I regret is not spending more time on the private screened in porch. All in all we had a lovely & comfortable stay!

  • Perfect place for graduation weekend. My family rented both apartments, and Oliver opened the doors so that we could easily connect them. I love the old wood accents combined with the new appliances. The screen in porch was perfect for brunch and dinner with my family. Overall, great experience.

About
I'm from Charlottesville, Virginia and live there with my wife, Natasha. We live with an exceptional dog (Lika) who won't ever travel with us for dislike of cars. 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 gearing up for nine months of traveling in South America beginning with the World Cup in Brazil!
