Better Than Advertised!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I stayed here in April of this year. The owner lives overseas, but was responsive to emails and great to work with. The house is wonderful. It is spacious, with multiple areas available for hanging out with your family and friends. The bedrooms are large and the beds are comfortable. The location is unbeatable, just 5 minutes from the Corner. And the neighbors are great too! If you are considering this home for your next trip, you should know that it is better than advertised. The pictures don't do justice to how updated, clean and awesome this place is.

Fantastic house for any UVA events-Superior location and layout

  • 5 of 5

Our family shared this wonderful house with friends for a long weekend around a UVA sporting event, and I can honestly say that there is no better place to stay in Charlottesville. We were two couples and four teenagers, and there was ample room for everyone to sleep comfortably on plush mattresses and linens, have privacy and his/her own bathroom (very important). The house also has a number of nicely-furninshed areas to enjoy together. We could all easily relax by the cozy fireplace in the living room while the kids watched movies in the downstairs den. We made breakfast and meals in the spacious, fully equipped kitchen. The location is tucked away on a leafy road near Farmington Country Club, but a quick and easy drive to the university grounds as well as Barracks Rd. shopping, groceries, restaurants, etc. The owners answered all of our questions in a timely way, and we would definitely stay here for future games.
