Kathy & Roy

Hey, I’m Kathy & Roy!

Charlottesville, Virginia, United States · Member since February 2014

We're a not-quite-ready-to-retire couple who are happy to call Charlottesville home -- Kathy since 1979 (off/on), and Roy since 2002. We are committed to making your stay with us a comfortable and welcoming experience. Our home is nicely situated to afford a quiet, restful, and spacious stay, all while being close to what you want to do while you're here - we hope you'll spend some time with us and let us prove it!

We are one of the few airbnb hosts in Albemarle County who have gone through the effort and expense of having our property properly licensed and inspected as a short term rental - and we're proud of that. We collect and remit local lodging taxes as part of our nightly rental fee, even though you don't see it itemized on your end. We have also been working closely with local government officials to enact simple and fair short term rental ordinances that protect neighborhoods (and guests!) while allowing property owners to maximize their investment in their homes.

We both work outside the home M-F, but are easily reachable by phone if you need us on a weekday, and are typically close to home most weekends. We're happy to offer suggestions for things to do around town, places to eat, etc. Just ask! We've been working on our guidebook so that you can easily find things near our home -- have you checked it out?

Guests will frequently see us 'piddling' in the yard or garden - Roy loves his lawn, and Kathy is the flower-grower, and will usually find something blooming to fill a vase or two in our guest quarters. If you're lucky enough to visit when Kathy is harvesting from the vegetable and herb gardens, she's happy to send you home with some fresh Virginia produce.
