Great Location; Room for Improvement on Amenities

  • 3 of 5

Steve was really easy to get a hold of and wonderful to work with. The location of this house was great, within walking distance of the Downtown Mall and plenty of little restaurants, etc. The only downside would be little things like towels, storage for clothes and space for your things as a traveler could have been better thought out. For example, we lived out of our suitcases on the floors - no dressers or tables to put suitcases on. One closet (full of owner's things) had a few hangers to use. Bathrooms were clean, but compared to other houses I've rented on VRBO, it was slightly below par. Again, nowhere to put our things - all of our stuff was on the floor. We had three adults and a toddler staying, and there was one towel per person, I had to go buy more for the week. The fridge was full of owner's food, which was also something I hadn't experienced through a VRBO property before. I realize these are little things, but when you're renting your home out to people, it's nice to think about the traveler's accommodations and conveniences. Even throwing a table out on the porch or something to hang out at. Little things do make a big difference - all in all a good stay, but room for improvement comparatively.

Had a great time! House was perfect (clean, well stocked, cool decor) and what a great location!! Within walking distance to the mall and cool shops. We didn't drive the entire weekend! Will definitely stay again...

Steve had great suggestions for dinner options close by. My guests were thrilled with the location and how close we were to restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed staying at this home. At first you feel as if you are in someone's house, as it seems they live there, but very quickly you feel right at home. This was a very comfortable property and close to the downtown mall area as well as some bars and restaurants even closer. I would definitely rent this property again! It was perfect for our UVA trips although you would need to drive to campus.

Cute house in a quiet block near a lot of fun stuff

  • 5 of 5

We came down to Charlottesville for a weekend getaway and really enjoyed this house, which was just a couple blocks away from several restaurants and a slightly longer but still short walk away from the Downtown Mall. Great base for visiting Cville and UVA, and pretty easy access to 250 and the interstate and some of the farther afield wineries. Thanks for a fun stay!

Great house in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were in Charlottesville for work and Steve's house was a great fit for our needs. The house is wonderfully decorated with little curiosities throughout the house that were the delight of my toddler son. One of our work sites was half a block away and the other just a quick drive downtown. About 2 blocks from the house is a small cluster of restaurants and cafes...we ate at La Taza almost everyday! The neighbors were very nice and we enjoyed relaxing on the porch in our off time. Steve is a gracious host and we had no problems during our stay. My only recommendation is a small microwave would be very helpful...aside from that we could definitely see ourselves staying there again if our travels bring us back to C'Ville.
