Description
The Space

I have spent a lot of time creating this listing, revising, and updating. If you book, I want you to get exactly what you expect or to exceed your expectations so please take some time to read through the description of the neighborhood, the layout of the beds, etc. and thanks for considering! Our 1600 sq. foot house is centrally located half a mile (10-15 minute) walk from the downtown pedestrian mall and less than a mile from the grounds of the University of Virginia. Just blocks from the restaurants and markets of West Main Street! The kitchen is the gem of this 2 bedroom, 2 full bath home. The spacious and open design make it a pleasure to cook in or to just linger over coffee. The counter-space is plentiful and the fridge will be nearly empty, allowing plenty of room to make yourself at home. Help yourself to coffee (french press), tea, and any basic condiments you like. The kitchen is open to the dining room, which seats 6. The ground-floor consists of the large, open kitchen and dining room, a small sitting room, laundry room, a full bathroom, and living room. On the second floor you will find two bedrooms, one with a full (slightly smaller than queen) and one with a queen bed, and a full bathroom. The large living room has a pull-out queen couch and a privacy curtain to create a third sleeping space. The back "bonus" room off of the dining room provides a fourth small but private sleeping space on a slightly smaller than full-sized futon. I've heard that it's a tight fit for two, if you have 8 in your party we have a full or twin air mattress to accommodate. There is a large t.v. in the guestroom with hbo channels (no dvd player or cable though). The house also has a back deck with a gas grill, table and chairs, a front porch, and off-street parking for two cars. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE MAKING A BOOKING REQUEST I love airbnb. I have had amazing experiences as both guest and host over the last three years. I am consistently impressed with the level of trust and mutual respect that makes this not just an awesome business but fosters a community. On that note, I recently (after hosting hundreds of guests in my home) had a conversation with my neighbor about how our hosting has affected him. He said that recently there have been some "parties" happening in our backyard with loud music and more people than perhaps should be as well as multiple cars parking along the street outside his house (there's no street parking on our street; the cars were just sort of pulled to the side). As much as I love hosting, it is more important to keep the peace with the neighbors and to keep a good name for airbnb (in case you haven't heard, many cities are becoming divided between citizens who are for and against airbnb even being legal, largely for reasons like this). Given this issue here are some strict requirements for renting my house 1. NO unregistered guests without prior permission. Unless you let me know and get approved for others, the people on your original reservation are the people who have permission to be on the property. 2. No exceptions to the 2 cars in the parking spaces, no street parking on our street. There is parking in the neighborhood and I'm happy to point you in the right direction if your group will have more than 2 cars. 3. Quit time after dark in the backyard/on the back deck. We have party's back there, we play music back there, we also always keep in mind how it might negatively influence our neighbors and keep it chill. Keep the stereo to a low-moderate level and no music after dark outside please. If you know your group is looking to party late night with a big group than this is not the house for you. If you wanna place to have coffee together, a beer on the front porch, a chill grill out on the deck, than I'd love to host you. Let's keep airbnb the amazing and respectful community it is, not just for guests and hosts but for the neighbors too. LASTLY :) We have two other listings that might suit you better, depending on your group size. The house is on Page Street, very close to UVA and not far from downtown and is divided into a one bedroom apartment (capacity for 6 with couch and futon) and a studio that sleep 3. The listings are Clean & Cozy Close to UVA and Private Loft Studio Cville Center, check 'em out!

Guest Access

You will have the entire house, including off-street parking for one car, a front porch, back deck (with a grill), washer/dryer, and full kitchen.

Interaction with Guests

We will usually just leave a key for you to let yourselves in but we will available during your stay should something arise.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is friendly and a mix of residential and commercial. I walk everywhere and enjoy cutting through the residential neighborhoods to get where I'm going.

Getting Around

The free trolley runs along Main Street (a 5 minute walk) from the Downtown Mall to the UVA Grounds. Public buses run past the house. You can't really "hail" a cab in Cville but our convenient and central location means you should have one at the door soon after calling. We are .7 miles from "The Corner"/UVA & .7 miles from the downtown mall.

Other Things to Note

THE HOUSE There are two real beds, the queen is in our bedroom and the double is in the guestroom. Unfortunately there is not any dresser space to unpack but there are hangers and some closet space available in the guestroom, along with an iron. Additional sleeping space is possible on the queen-sized pull out couch in the living room (separated with a privacy curtain) and a futon in the...I don't know what to call it...bonus room? It's off the dining room with a door and a backdoor entrance. Our house is cozy and very functional. The kitchen is stocked with everything you should need appliance-wise as well as complementary coffee and tea. THE NEIGHBORHOOD We are located in the area known as Fifeville. This neighborhood is racially and socio-economically diverse. In all honesty, it's not the prettiest area in town and our street in particular is a mix of residential and commercial properties. It is safe and central and we have a very comfortable, clean, cozy home for you to make your own while you rent.

About Faith
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
