About this listing
Two bedroom two and half bath new yet quaint two story house. Plenty of natural light and modern conveniences filled with eclectic furniture and vintage accessories all very close to downtown Cville. Wonderful backyard and deck also.
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 zen sleeper/sofa. (message me if you have the need to sleep a kid or two, as this might accommodate); 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 bustle. 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 short-haired lovable indoor cats. If willing, you can love and feed them or arrangements may possibly be made. Must not be allowed outside.
We also offer the option of sharing the house and renting just the guest room for 1-2 people. This means sharing the kitchen, bathroom and common areas with me and my boyfriend, Judd as well during the stay. If interested in such an arrangement, please send me a message to learn more about this option.
And lastly, 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:

bus stop 2 blocks away/riding bikes/walking
Other Things to Note
must realize my two sweet cats will most likely stay on the premises, assuming you are not allergic and don't mind feeding. they are also strictly indoor only cats and have free reign of the house. typical check in time is 3PM, but inquire if you would like to check in a little earlier. no guarantees but will take on a case-by-case basis.
Check in time is 3PM and check out time is usually by 12PM unless different arrangements have been made between guests and host in advance. If you require something different, just ask and most times I can accommodate you. 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.
