Loved the space -- just as open and airy as it looks in the photos. We had a great time at the bar/dance party downstairs (if you're coming in on a Friday or Saturday and looking for some night life, you need not go further)! Plenty of parking. Though it's not necessary to have a car since you can walk to the downtown, we were glad we had one to get around Charlottesville as the town is fairly spread out. Matteus and Anna were wonderful, welcoming hosts.
We had a great stay here. Location was excellent. We were here in the winter while the university students were on winter break, so it was quiet., We were close enough to walk downtown and then down to the university for our morning run. The loft was clean and a space heater was available which worked just fine. I would still drive to dinner in the evening. (Though I imagine with more students and warmer weather you could walk.) We'd love to come back. Thanks!
Perfect place to stay! Comfy loft, great bed, and a record player. Couldn't really ask for more! We would definitely come back.
Great location and place to stay for a Charlottesville getaway. Beautiful space and loved the records. Definitely recommend
We stayed over at the loft for one night when checking out Monticello and Charlottesville - we had a great stay! The room was exactly as pictured and described, and there were local gourmet chocolates on our pillows and hot chocolate set out in the kitchen (which was great with the cold weather).
Matteus was really helpful in suggesting things to do and places to eat - we tried his brunch recommendation and it was fantastic.
We enjoyed a couple of drinks in the bar downstairs - which was a quirky and cool space. If you wanted to go to bed early, it could possibly be a bit loud - but everything quieted down right at midnight, and the space was otherwise totally quiet and comfortable.
I stayed for a night with my wife and baby and we loved the loft and the location. Also a great bar downstairs!
Great Loft. Wonderful experience.
Stayed with a friend at Matteus and Anna's cozy, clean and spacious loft apartment for Saturday night of UVA Homecoming weekend. This was my first airbnb experience and I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone passing through Cville who wants an affordable, less generic place to stay--not lacking in amenities and comfort. Their place is exactly as advertised on Airbnb.
Anna was very friendly and welcoming when she gave us the key and let us into the loft. It was one of the first cold weekends of fall, so they had turned on a space heater on for us before we arrived and left warm blankets, but the place seemed well-heated and we never felt cold. The linens were clean and the bed was comfy. I loved how they decorated the space, it was funky and artsy with hanging plants and tapestries and has a peaceful, relaxed feel. Anna was so sweet to invite us to watch monster movies (it was the weekend before Halloween) they were showing that night at the bar downstairs.
The loft is a short walk to Beer Run, the Korean House (delish korean food!) and close to the Downtown Mall.
As a former UVA student and Cville resident it was cool to stay at such a unique, relaxing space I didn't know existed!
Matteus and Anna were great hosts! The loft was very cool and spacious. We didn't make it to the saloon downstairs (the loft has a separate entrance), but it sounded like people were having a great time. :)
We stayed two nights. On Saturday, the bar was—as expected—lively and loud. On Sunday, the bar was closed, and it seemed as though we were the only people in Charlottesville!
This place was really fun and comfortable. It is easy to find, and Matteus' instructions made it simple to get settled. It is convenient to the Belmont area and downtown. The loft is very cool looking with a great deck for star gazing, nice plants and art, and a really comfortable bed. We were in town for a wedding, so we didn't have time to check out the bar downstairs but definitely will the next we're in town. It looks like it has good food and beer and our local friends like it a lot. (The loft is also close to Beer Run so there's convenient good breakfast food and beer for when the bar is not open). The french press for coffee, Secret Love record cover on the door, and Dr. Bronner's in the shower were icing on the cake. We highly recommend this place.
This beautiful couple was such a pleasure to host! They only spent one night, but it was sweet to meet them, they have an incredible, calm, open, happy energy, and it was Matteus' birthday, so it was nice to host them on a special night! Very clean, respectful, and just overall good people. I hope to meet again.
Matteus was very communicative and easy-going. Heck, I barely noticed he was at our house! He left everything in great shape. I highly recommend him to other Airbnbers.
