The Space

My home is an old house in an old neighborhood a 15 minute walk to historic downtown Charlottesville, Va. or bikeride to UVa. It's full of music and interesting things to look at. There have been lots of musicians, and children growing up here; it's held many amazing shared meals and very sweet times.
My rehearsal space and massage studio are also here- book a wonderful massage with me when you come!
Currently I'm loving the luxury of living alone but also enjoy hosting company (I just had the true joy of working with two musicians from Mexico who stayed with me for a month).
There's onstreet parking, high speed internet, a quiet backyard (with a great El Camino to sleep in under an amazing tree), a front porch to smoke on, a fireplace, and a hot tub.
And the best tacos in town right around the corner.
There is only one bathroom, and the AC is pretty mild in the dog days, but it's a very cool house almost all the time.
Charlottesville's a great town; the University of Virginia is here, but also local Roller Derby and Ladies Arm Wrestling teams-

House Rules

I think not so much rules, but of things I'm always thankful for when they happen;
parking so that 2 cars can still fit in front of the house (there's usually easy parking near the house, so not a big deal, but I'm frequently unloading equipment when I come home, so appreciate being able to park in front of the house)
knowing when you're coming and going more or less, or if you're here- something guests don't think about- if they close the door to their room, I don't know if they're here, maybe sleeping or not. I like to practice and don't want to disturb people.
This one does feel like a bigger deal sometimes- if you book and are planning to arrive in the morning of the day before the night you're staying. do let me know when you request a res. Sometimes it doesn't work, because another guest will book the night before after you do and still be here (also, I keep musician's hours and may want to be sleeping).
Most of this seems to all work out, it just seemed worthwhile to let folks know.
