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's place was perfect for our quick stop to see Monticello . Everything we needed!.
we felt most welcome because notes everywhere covered every possible question. The house is very livable. My sister and I each had a bedroom to ourselves. If we had been three and each wanted their own room, the third bedroom turns out to be the large hideaway sofa in the living room. All three beds are at least queen size. This is my first Airbnb experience and I had not expected breakfast, hadn't even thought about it. I was surprised when my sister began eating the owner's food in the a.m. But I remembered the bnB and quickly caught on. Excellent breakfast food.
House was clean beds comfy well stocked kitchen lots little helpful notes. Not crazy about the neighborhood.
Our stay was quite smooth, no problems. Really loved David's house. Everything was well thought of. David was really prompt in his replies.
David's house was in a convenient location to restaurants in Belmont and Downtown Charlottesville. The house was clean and comfortable.
David's place was great! Clean, spacious, and on a quiet street. Close to Belmont and downtown Charlottesville. We took the middle room and the bed was nice and comfortable. David will be our go to for anytime we visit Charlottesville!
