***In the spirit of Mettā, we are taking every precaution to maintain clean and healthy home for our guests and our family by following CDC best practices. The Mettā Gem C'ville is a newly renovated two bedroom bungalow appointed with the guiding principles of Metta. In a society choked by an endless stream of information and mass-production, our two bedroom home should feel like a sanctuary: a harmonious space of realignment. Go for a quick stroll or an urban hike in this big town in a small city. Close to UVA, a cluster of fabulous restaurants, & a short drive to many picturesque sites surrounding Charlottesville.

The space
This Gem is full of all the amenities you will need to enjoy your Metta stay. The moment you enter hang your things and make yourself right at home. We have a smart TV (Hulu, Netflix, amazon, pandora and a few other streaming apps are loaded) mounted over the fireplace visible from the living room, kitchen island, and dining area. The mini split unit on the wall is operated via a remote control. Please be sure to leave it on the coffee table. This provides an energy and economical heating and air-conditioning solution. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials even the locally roasted ( by Lamplighter in Richmond) Mettā Coffee - STIR.

My husband Eric and I enjoy traveling. I travel the world for a living and sneak in family trips from the rewards of the many miles I travel. I am in product development for home decor products and Eric works at a law firm. We love to collect things from our travels to incorporate them into our home. When not traveling we spend a lot of time on the back porch planning our next adventure, walking the neighborhood discovering the parks, gardens, architecture and enjoying the various restaurants in Church Hill. Sometimes we make it off the hill to explore other cool areas of Richmond like Jackson Ward, the Fan, and Scott's Addition to name a few. We thought it would be nice to share our little nugget of history in this historical, hip, and diverse neighborhood we live in by opening our home to fellow travelers. We hope that you enjoy your stay and love this home as much as we do!
