A most enjoyable stay...

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and convenient! We have enjoyed our four months at Rugby Place, while constructing a new home. The location is perfect. The owner has created a charming apartment suite with all the comforts one could expect. He could not be more conscientious and helpful.

Outstanding Property in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We needed a furnished rental for the month of April while my wife was rehabbing from surgery at UVA medical center. The suite was the perfect setup for us and the location couldn't have been any better. The suite itself is very tastefully furnished and has all the necessities and amenities for a stay of just about any length. A great kitchen for cooking in if that is in your plans and all new appliances. The location is also outstanding. About a 5-10 minute drive to the university or hospital and the Federal Executive Institute is right at the bottom of the hill. There is excellent shopping at Barracks Road, also right at the bottom of the hill, with two great grocery stores, multiple restaurants and lots of specialty shops. Heading the other direction you are within walking distance of Shenandoah Joe, an awesome independent coffee shop. The neighborhood itself is an older established community and while be close to everything is a very quiet peaceful setting. The property also has some outstanding landscaping and the porch in nice weather is a special retreat. As others have mentioned, Matt was amazingly easy to work with and super responsive to any questions. He couldn't have made our stay there any simpler or more enjoyable.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We moved to Charlottesville and needed a ST rental so we could have additional time to look for a house to purchase. We loved living in this property; it is a lovely 2 bedroom suite and has been beautifully done. For Charlottesville, one would be hard pressed to find a better location in the city. The unit was comfortable, well heated and cooled and the owner was a pleasure to work with. He is incredibly responsive and whenever we had any issue, he would be incredibly helpful.

I can't think of enough good things to say about our stay there - and would recommend the property to anyone in Charlottesville for a ST or a LT stay.

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! I spent a week here with my husband and mother-in-law while we were in town for a family wedding, and it was perfect for us. The unit is spacious, very clean and comfortable, and we were impressed by how quiet it was while still being close to downtown, the UVA campus, lots of restaurants, etc. Matt was very helpful and responsive throughout our stay. We all loved the unit and would definitely stay there again the next time we come to Charlottesville.

Perfect place to stay in Charlottesville. Matt was an excellent host from the first email until we checked out, even giving some great recommendations on winery's and night life.

I would definitely stay at this property again!

Fabulous Fall Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in the basement rental for our annual sister weekend in Charlottesville. The location is perfect...close to the downtown mall, UVA and the corner. Additionally, the rental was super clean and well stocked in case you forgot something (laundry detergent, Q-tips, toothbrushes, etc). It's a cozy and confortable location for a relaxing and enjoyable trip. Highly recommend!
