FULL DESCRIPTION FROM OTHER LISTING FOR FULL HOUSE:
Located in the historic Locust Grove neighborhood in Downtown Charlottesville, this is a two bedroom two and half bath brand new yet quaint two story house. Plenty of natural light and modern conveniences filled with eclectic furniture and vintage accessories. Please note, two shorthair cats also live here and will most likely be here provided you are willing to feed and love. Not a cat person? Ask us about arrangements, but highly allergic people probably should not read further.
Master bedroom with queen size bed (2), master bath with double vanity, writing desk and walk in closet. Guest room is on the second floor with a comfortable queen size bed (2), a cozy reading area and closet along with a Jack and Jill bathroom with two vanities and a full size tub/shower. The landing is also a nice area to enjoy and spread out into and it has a sleeper/sofa that can accommodate two small kids or an additional adult; there is no door as it is at the top of the stairs so not its own room or as private. The living/dining is in the main area upon entry into the house set up as an open layout style. There is a nice dining table that accommodates four or more with provided leaves; amenities include a 32 inch HDTV, DVD player, several stereos plus turntable with vinyl records available, fully equipped kitchen with blender, juicer, toaster, range/microwave, french press (or coffee maker available upon request) as well as tea accessories, stainless steel refrigerator with water filter system. Free wi-fi, washer/dryer, gas fireplace, ceiling fans in all rooms, central air, artfully decorated, top down/bottom up blinds, large back deck with outdoor seating and grill, front porch with table and chairs and wicker chair and settee. Clean sheets and towels provided, free parking for several cars. Close to Charlottesville's historic Downtown Mall & Belmont area via car (2-3 minutes/2 miles), walking or biking distance too if you have more time, or there is a bus stop 2 blocks from house. Less than 3 miles to UVA Grounds and Monticello is less than 5 miles away--about 10 minutes by car. Perfect place for short-term stay with access to C-ville happenings and restaurants downtown, to UVA or a quick ride to the interstate. Location is ideal as its close to downtown without the hussle and bussle. And for those that enjoy nature, there is a section of the Rivanna trail just a block away to hop onto that follows the river and is an easy and peaceful walk in either direction. Please contact me with any questions. No smoking inside and no pets allowed. Again, we do have two friendly short-haired lovable indoor cats that have free range of my home. If willing, you can love and feed them or arrangements may possibly be made. Must not be allowed outside.
If you are a bigger group and wish to try to book other places in the neighborhood so you can stay close to each other, both of my direct neighbors who are wonderful also rent on Airbnb and can host 1-2 more people. Here are those links:

Other Things to Note
i have two sweet short haired cats that are indoor only, so you must be willing to have them around and be mindful of their habits. my boyfriend's dog is also there on and off. so anyone with pet allergies probably won't like our place.
Guests are not allowed to use the studio/business room off the upstairs landing.
No pets please and no smoking inside. Guests may smoke on the porch and use ashtray provided, (do not throw butts out onto the sidewalk or yard). Full use of the backyard is allowed, but no huge parties please. If you use the grill, clean it. There is a $100 fee for smoking in the apartment, and $50 in cash for lost keys. Bring your own detergent and washer and dryer are available to use. Please leave dirty dishes in the sink or put in the dishwasher and sheets and towels can either be gathered and left in one place or just leave beds unmade.
I am an artist/photographer and an adventurer at heart (who doesn't get to travel nearly enough as I'd like). When traveling to new places, I love to live like a local--shop for food, cook, explore cafes and restaurants, and stray from the beaten path. When home, I'm a passionate cook, a lover of things green, a yogi, and an aspiring harmonica player. I live as sustainably as I can (also now with my boyfriend Judd), play with my two cats as often as I can, meditate when I can, and laugh a lot.
