Interaction with Guests
Interaction with guests is completely at your discretion. I've lived in Charlottesville for 30 years, so am happy to answer any questions and offer local tourist advice, or I can stay out of the way. I always sleep elsewhere so guests can have privacy of the whole house. Occasionally, I stay in my Lionel Train hobby house in the back yard, but your privacy in the house is assured.
Across the street from a nature preserve. Country feel in the city. It is a 15 minute walk to some of Belmont's most exciting restaurants: Beer Run, Mas Tapas, Tavola, and the Local. Thirty minute walk to the famous downtown mall.
Two city bus lines within four or five blocks.

David was a great host, excellent communication even though we didn't get to meet. The house was perfect for my family of 6 for our short stay in Charlottesville - sweet house, everything we needed (except no tub for my toddlers to bathe, but we made the shower work). The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of towels and blankets, and even toys for the little ones to play with. The walk to restaurants etc wasn't quite as easy/nice as we had imagined, but it is walkable and there were no issues. Overall a great stay, thanks David!
David was home when we arrived, and was very welcoming and friendly. The home was as advertised, and we felt safe and comfortable. David provided fresh eggs, homemade granola, coffee for breakfast. The house had everything that we needed for our stay. The neighborhood is a mix of residences and was quiet. It is a short drive to everything in Charlottesville from the home. Would recommend this home.
We had a wonderful time in Charlottesville. David was a very welcoming host, leaving fresh milk, eggs and juice in the refrigerator for our use. He also left little notes in quaint and unexpected places that provided helpful informarion. The beds were quite comfortable.
Oh, I almost forgot, he also left homemade granola, which hit the spot! We were famished when we arrived. Thank you, David. Btw, I grabbed the cord for my charger but accidentally left the adapter. If you could send it, I would appreciate it.
Thanks for a very comfortable place to rest and unwind. Also we enjoyed the homemade granola.
