Jessica's apartment was clean, cozy, and well-appointed. Scones, coffee, tea, bowls of fruit and snacks, OJ and milk, oatmeal, and breakfast bars were thoughtfully set out in the kitchen for us. The proximity to the pedestrian mall was ideal. We walked downtown daily. The beds were comfortable and the washer and dryer worked great. We'd definitely stay again!
This house was exactly as it was described. My wife and I really enjoyed the home and the neighborhood. It is located in a very walking friendly area of Charlottesville. Also, we appreciated the treats and waters that were left for us, and that coffee was GREAT!
Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your wonderful house.
Jessica is a total sweetheart and her home was a perfect little place to rest our heads. Many thanks to her for making our stay comfortable and easy!
Jessica's place was great. It's quiet, clean, and more spacious than it looks in the pictures. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils/cookware/even a blender if you choose to cook. It's a less than 10-minute walk from the downtown pedestrian mall which has an incredible array of great bars, restaurants, coffee/tea shops, independent bookstores (I lost track at 5), movie theaters and music venues. It's also only a 25-minute leisurely stroll from the Amtrak station. I didn't get to meet her, but she called me back almost immediately to very helpfully to answer the one question I had.
Also, she incredibly nicely left a bowl of fruit, a bowl of snacks, and some essentials: milk, a 1/2 dozen eggs, olive oil and butter!
Had a lovely long weekend in Charlottesville and stayed in this nice apartment. We were very comfortable and close to the downtown mall. Nicely furnished with everything you would need and we would recommend it to friends. It's a little treacherous due to lack of sidewalk and sunken ground at the curbing..
We contacted her on short notice and she was very accommodating. The place is very cute, well cared for and comfortable. The welcome fruit and snacks were appreciated. If you have any trouble with walking on uneven surfaces, the sidewalk is non-existent in front. But once past that, all is good. After being out all day it was a lovely place to come 'home' to. If you want to listen to music, bring your radio. I would recommend this to friends and I also would not hesitate to stay there again.
