If you can't join 'em - host 'em.
Alice's apartment is lovely and in a great neighborhood. The whole apartment is beautifully decorated with eclectic pieces of art, and filled with soft natural light. The bedroom has access to a shared bath and a sunroom with a desk.
Street parking can take a few minutes to find but it's usually available near the front door. The WiFi only works in common areas outside the bedroom, but works great. We were able to stream movies on it with no trouble.
Alice is a quiet housemate, but very friendly and hospitable. This house is a great deal, and we'd love to stay here again.
Alice was an absolutely fantastic host! HANDS DOWN. If i were rating the stay with her in the Olympics i would have to give her a 10.0! everything was unbelievable! The place was awesome. Location was awesome... and Alice was a perfect host with excellent recommendations as to where to go around her house for places to eat and things to do!!!! We would ABSOLUTELY stay with Alice again (and may do so just to see more of Richmond!). My wife and i recommend you do the same! Outside of the airbnb parameters, Alice is the kind of people who you'd like to meet in your everyday life- not just to rent a room from!
Location is key. We were able to park and walk everywhere in Carytown. Alice's suggested list of things to do was great. It rained, so were not able to do all we had intended, but enjoyed sleeping in. She has quite the green thumb, and everything was clean and decorated very artistically and aesthetically pleasing.
We really enjoyed all of the small vases of flowers.
Alice was a wonderful host. The apartment and room was exactly as described and the location couldn't be better. I spent my weekend exploring Richmond by bicycle and found that everything I wanted to do was easily accessible from here: great biking and walking trails, museums, restaurants, bars. .. I would highly recommend staying with Alice and if I find myself in Richmond again I will definitely reserve with her again.
Alice was extremely helpful host! My arrival to Richmond was delayed (I missed the bus from DC) but still she actually came to the coach station to pick me up. The entire flat was comfortable and in nice place. Recommend to everyone. Alice: thanks for your help getting to your place!
Alice is a fantastic girl and I loved spending time with her! Her apartment is fantastic and I really enjoyed chillin' on her balcony! The location couldn't be better! I would definitely stay again :)
For our first visit to Richmond, this was an awesome place to stay. The location is literally steps away from all of the shops and restaurants on Cary St. When we pulled up in front, we couldn't believe that we were going to get to stay on this gorgeous street so close to everything. The house itself is really comfortable, lots of interesting art around. The bedroom was more than big enough and included a nice sunroom/office space with a desk that I took advantage of to get some work done. VERY comfortable sleigh bed. We shared a bathroom with Alice which as she indicated, was never a problem. Alice was super welcoming and accommodating. She greeted us when we arrived and left towels and maps of Richmond in the bedroom. She was traveling while we were staying at her house, so that was the last time we actually saw her, but we wouldn't have hesitated to call or text her if we needed anything, as she offered. Overall, would definitely stay there again, highly recommended!
This really is a great place to stay. It's large, airy and very nicely decorated. The front porch and kitchen really were nice to hang out in.
The location is great too. Close to Carytown. A bit of a hike to downtown , but there is a bus that runs nearby. There is plenty of street parking if you have a car.
Only met Alice for a moment, but she was very welcoming - leaving maps, breakfast foods and a really laid back attitude.
Alice has a wonderful apartment that my friend Mariel and I truly enjoyed! The room and bathroom were very clean, bright, and airy. And you cant beat the location in the fan. The place was close to everything! Alice herself was a wonderul host and towels ready for us, and even extra bath supplies in case we needed them. Would definitely recommend her room to others!
I didn't get a chance to meet Alice, but did meet her roommate Emily briefly, who was very friendly, and everything worked out quite well. The room is nice, and it has a little attached sunroom as well. It's a nice location, by Carytown, with little shops, restaurants, etc.
Alice y su compañero han sido amables, puntuales y cuidadosos. Solamente les pude conocer por unas horas, espero que ellos también estuviesen a gusto en el apartamento.
They are really lovely. It´s a pity that they have stayed only for a night.I would love to host them back.I wish them the best of luck.
