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.

It is a very charming home in a convenient location close to UVA and downtown. David was a wonderful host and was quick to respond to any issues we had. Would highly recommend.
David was a wonderful host and the house was perfect. The property was very well cared for and the personal touches were lovely. We greatly appreciated access to a pack n play and the breakfast in the morning was superb. David was very timely with email responses and had thought of everything!
