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 entirely if you prefer privacy. I can sleep elsewhere if you prefer.

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.

  • Good communication with host and easy access to Belmont restaurants. The house itself is clean and roomy while unpretentiously decorated it is full of David’s personality (e.g. awesome vintage stamp collection albums).

    March 2014
  • David had a nice, clean house available for us to stay in. He was generous enough to allow several of my company members from out of the country to stay for two weeks while we held our annual meeting. He was a gracious and attentive host and the property was nice and well cared for. The location is convenient for walking or taking the bus to downtown. Definitely worth staying!

  • David was extremely hospitable! His place was clean, he provided us with coffee and breakfast, and readily offered us any help about how to get around the city. The location was perfect too as it's only a mile into town and from the heart of the city!

  • My husband and I stayed in David's house for 4 nights in January while we were in Charlottesville for a wedding. His house is very cozy and clean. David was a wonderful host; he is very kind and cooks a wonderful breakfast! His home is located in an up and coming neighborhood in Charlottesville, and it was close to everything (especially Monticello!). We would definitely recommend staying here!

    January 2014
  • David was an excellent, thoughtful host. My friend and I stayed at his cute, cozy, and comfortable house two nights over New Years. David was super communicative before we arrived and when we arrived (rather late in the evening) he gave us a warm welcome and a local beer. He was forthcoming with things to do over NYE in Cville, which we appreciated. The bed was super soft and bathroom/kitchen very clean. Speaking of his kitchen, David was nice enough to make coffee and cook breakfast for us...yum! Highlight of staying here may have been listening to his daughter's band's music the day we left. Overall, staying @ David's was a great experience, and if you are looking for an affordable yet personalized way to do Cville there is no reason you should stay anywhere else! The house is close to the downtown area.
