About Jesse Wright
I retired from "corporate world" about 6 years ago, and never looked back. I love to travel, garden, participate in River activities, and hike.
Jesse Wright purchased this House in 1988
Why Jesse Wright chose Byrd Park
This house is 100 years old--I have enjoyed every minute of restoring and renovating it's beauty. The neighborhood architecture is unique, from homes on the Historic Registry to new homes. This two-story house has a private back yard, porch and garden. the house is half of a duplex: I live in the other half.
What makes this House unique
I love this location.The nerighbors are great. Everything is convenient and close by. I used to walk to my downtown office or the VCU classes. I bike in the surrounding parks and snowshoe in the winter (we rarely get enough snow). Fireworks can be seen from the front yard on Independence Day!

Definitely 5 stars
We enjoyed our stay here very much! We were there during Richmond’s 12 inches of snow event! The fireplace made the lovely home all the more cozy and warm while we watched the snow come down. The home is well stocked especially the kitchen. It is convenient to everything with a pretty view of the lake across the street to make it more special. ATP and Joe were very responsive to our needs ... Joe came over after the snow and shoveled the walk for us to get out. All in all it was a nice experience. We highly recommend Urban Oasis if you are planning a trip to Richmond!
Lovely stay in Richmond
We loved staying in Jessie's wonderful duplex. It was charming and the owners were so accommodating. We cooked some in the kitchen as it was Thanksgiving and it is well stocked and organized. One of my favorite things was taking a stroll around the lake. This home is locating in a beautiful setting. If we are needing a place to stay that is close to the action in Richmond we will definitely consider this home!
Will definitely consider this cozy home in the future!
We loved our stay at this little hideaway! The kitchen and bathrooms were nicely updated and it was definitely roomy enough for the two of us. So much better than a hotel! We enjoyed walking around Byrd Park in the mornings and sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee or glass of wine....very friendly area. This was my sister and my first trip to Richmond and we will definitely keep in mind in the future!
Thanks for coming. It was great meeting you two. Come back again soon.
Love the house and the area!!
Owners were very helpful and friendly !!
Clean, Comfortable and Cozy
Great location with all the comforts of home.
A delightful place to stay for a wonderful Richmond weekend!
We stayed two nights in this lovely Byrd Park area home. We were able to catch two exhibits at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Virginia Historical Museum, which were both excellent. Jesse's place is less than a mile from the entrance of the Maymont Estate and gardens, and we spent a good part of Friday evening wandering the grounds. The kitchen is well provisioned and we cooked in on Friday night. There's also a great patio space in the back of the house that is great for an al fresco breakfast or evening cocktails. We liked this place so much that we made arrangements to come back in the Fall!
Thanks so much for staying at Urban Oasis RVA! We are looking forward to seeing you again the Fall as well...
