About This Listing
For those preferring more privacy, and a little bit of luxury, or for more than two guests, we have the basement. It has a bedroom (Queen size bed, super comfy mattress/sheets, fantastic views), full bath (equipped with towel warmer and under-tile warming), a wet bar (with fridge and lots of goodies inside, toaster, coffee maker, electric kettle etc), and its own separate entrance. Everything is the same as described in Charlottesville at Bargain Price (internet, continental breakfast, parking etc) except that you have the entire place to yourself. The basement is recently renovated, is a lot more spacious and can accommodate up to four people (2 in the bedroom and 2 on a pull-out sofa bed in the living room). Everything in the basement is spotlessly clean and prepared to the highest standards...a perfect place to relax, refresh and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.
** Please consult our calendar to confirm availability
**Prices based on two people sharing a bed. If you require separate beds, that would count as an extra person
Please keep everything neat and tidy. No smoking / pets. No cooking. You are welcome to use everything in the kitchenette area (including the fridge and all its contents) except the microwave. There is of course the electric kettle / coffee maker so you can always make tea/coffee, and if you need to warm food we'll be happy to do it for you upstairs. We also respectfully ask guests not to take food/drinks in the room, but use the dinning area instead.
*Please Note: Footpath to the left is a bit steep and can be slippery when wet. Please exercise caution. Please use footpath to the right if grass is wet. Thank you :)
This is a very nice and extremely clean basement. Everything was as advertised, including some essentials for breakfast. Issa was very welcoming and showed me around when I arrived.
The dorm has a big window with a view of the backyard, which actually runs into the woods. This makes a nice little walk too.
I went back to C'ville for school reunion. It was very nice staying with Maryam and Issa. The house is located in a very nice neighborhood. It's close to the airport. Takes about 15 min to get to school but since I have a car it's very convenient. The house is recently renovated. Maryam and Issa have made it comfortable, convenient and very relaxing. I'm glad that I stayed here. You will love it.
Lovely basement apartment. Extremely clean and nicely furnished. A bit odd not being allowed to use the brand-new microwave but we didn't end up needing it. Quiet neighborhood with lots of trails and lakes that were nice for walks. 20 minutes to downtown and 25 to Monticello. My husband, baby, and I were very comfortable here for a weekend getaway. We'd recommend it highly.
We really enjoyed our stay at Charlottesville on a Budget II. Maryam and Issa made us feel very welcome. They even had breakfast fixings for us! The space was top-notch. It was completely renovated 18 months ago and had high-end fixtures. We especially enjoyed the heated floor in the bathroom.
The bed was very comfortable as was the living room couch. The apartment was exactly as it appears in the photo.
Overall, a great experience!
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay with Maryam and Issa. The basement apartment was beautiful! It was private, clean and very comfortable! Also, the heated floors and the heated towel rack in the bathroom were great! We’ll definitely be back in the near future!
We (boyfriend and I) had a great stay with Maryam and Issa. They are extremely kind and hospitable! We arrived in the late evening on a Friday and left Sunday around noon. When we got there, Issa showed us around the basement where we stayed, it is newly finished and it is absolutely beautiful! It has its own private entrance, so you don't have to worry about bothering other people as you go about your day. The bedroom is cozy and the bed is super comfortable. The kitchen area has everything you need. Although they ask that you do not use the microwave, that's fine -- Charlottesville has a lot of great food and maybe this is a sign you should go exploring! You also have access to dishes for use during your stay. They also offered us food and drinks for breakfast and a couple bottles of water. Amazing. I didn't expect any of it, I was very impressed. The bathroom is really something else. You haven't lived until you've experienced the heated floors and the heated towel rack in the bathroom. The shower pressure was also great, if that matters to you. All in all, it was a great stay in a really fun little city. Hopefully we'll be back soon! Thanks, Maryam & Issa! See you next time.
This was our first time using Airbnb and Maryam and Issa's basement apartment was a great first experience. The apartment is just as described, clean, private, and very comfortable. We greatly appreciated the stocked fridge and breakfast foods! If you do have a party of 4 and need to use the pullout bed, it is very comfortable, we used it for 4 nights without a problem.

About the Host, Maryam/Issa
We're an easy going couple with a passion for travel. We first came to Charlottesville in 2008 for a brief visit, and loved the place so much that decided to move here permanently from England!
We love the opportunity to meet new people and share with them the beauties of this wonderful city.
