Gorgeous property with very responsive owners, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful and charming home. It is walking distance to the downtown pedestrian mall, so can't beat the location. Amy and Seth had just purchased the home so we were surprised at how immaculately it was already decorated. The hot tub was clean, the outdoor screened in patio was huge and very nice to sit in and enjoy a drink. There are multiple living spaces downstairs. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were super comfortable (multiple guests in our group commented on them). Amy and Seth were very responsive to any issues we had and very open to recommendations for improvements (which were only needed because they had so recently purchased the home and we were only the second guests). Our main issue was only having 1 shower for the group of 6 due to a water leak 2 days before we checked in, but they gave us a partial refund that was more than fair for an issue that was beyond their control. Overall a great stay and I would definitely consider staying here again for the next Charlottesville wine trip!
