Good little place, bed could be better
Great neighborhood, small cute older house with a nice yard for relaxing. The bed in the master bedroom has a pretty old, sinking mattress though, wouldn’t recommend it if your back is sensitive at all. Kitchen was small and short on pots and pans but very clean.
A perfect fit.
I took my mom to Charlottesville to visit my daughter ( who lives there) for a weekend. This house was perfect for our visit. The location is great - a charming neighborhood easy to access all areas of C-Ville. Plenty of room for the two of us ( it could comfortably accommodate up to four guests).
The best feature for us was that my daughter was able to visit for an afternoon with her dog who LOVED having the large fenced yard to explore. Such a treat!
The beds were super comfortable, the snacks and coffee provided upon arrival were most appreciated, loved the additional seating area of the sun porch, more than enough towels and extra blankets provided..... I could go on.
All in all, a great stay. Thank you!
A Few Things Could Use Improvement
Overall this was a very nice property. It was clean and in a safe and quiet neighborhood. I agree with a previous review stating that there was a very musty odor upon arrival. This was remedied by running the dehumidifier. Unfortunately, there was no communication telling us to do so. In other properties we have rented, there have been brief instructions as to operating the equipment in the house. Also, there have been instructions of where thing are located. Basically, small manuals regarding contents and equipment in the house. Something along this line would have been helpful.
The second night we were there, there was a power outage( no fault of the owner). Fortunately, it was a cool night and we did not need air conditioning. Unfortunately, we could not manage to get a single window to open. We feel this could be a safety issue.
The only other thing we noticed that could use improvement was the bathroom toilet. We don’t know if it is a water pressure issue, or whether a newer better flushing toilet could would help, but we did need to find and utilize the plunger.
Over we feel that this place would be excellent if a few improvement could be made.
Thank you so much for your suggestions for the property. We take our tenants reviews very seriously and have promptly repaired and made the adjustments necessary to remedy the problems you mentioned.
Thanks again for your help in bringing it to our attention.
The house was perfect for our weekend stay. Very comfortable and clean.
Abbey made everything very easy.
Charming and convenient
This is a very sweet and comfortable little house, fully stocked with dishes and plenty of towels. The neighborhood is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Charlottesville and very quiet and convenient. Our only complaint was that it seemed like it had been a while since anyone had checked on the house, and so it was a little dirty. There was initially a black scum with bugs in it over the toilet, for example, and the house was in general a bit musty. So we did some cleaning and airing out on our own. But another guest may not have this problem if the house has more frequent visitors. On the whole very comfortable and charming.
Our family came to Charlottesville for my daughter’s graduation. The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood and not too far from grocery stores and UVA. We felt like we were at home. We loved the tranquility of the area and the surrounding nature . We would highly recommend staying here.
