About Property Manager/Owner
I am self-employed. I take care of international students under the age of 18. I provide homestay to them - that is why I need a house to accommodate the students over the weekend and during major holiday breaks.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this House in 2015
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Richmond
I have a clean and tidy house, not luxurious. It is a comfortable stay just like home. That's why my prices beat motels/hostels. Please don't confuse it with a full service hotel. The pictures do not show details, actually my house needs lots of cosmetic detailing. I am working on them slowly. When it's finally fixed up, the prices will go up in line with some big houses on this website.

Great House. Awesome LandLord
We had a blast staying in this house. Big house with a lot of space. Great place for crowd of 10 ppl. Great place to build memories.
I like the fact that it was very easy to work with the LandLord of the property. She made sure we were okay.
I would highly recommend this place to my close friends and family.
Thanks! I was so surprised when you said your group stayed in my other houses in the past two years under different booking names. And I was so happy to see familiar faces when your group arrived. I will see you next year!
Excellent experience in Richmond!
Charmaine's house is wonderful! We were pleasantly surprised by the shaded (and fenced in!) backyard that was the perfect size for the kids to run around and stay within sight, and for cornhole, frisbee and bocce when they went to bed. Everything was exactly as pictured. Charmaine was in contact when we checked-in to ensure all was well (it was :o). We will definitely be staying here on our next family trip to Richmond!!
Thank you Matt! I thought you would either write a grudge review or like most people who enjoy to use social media to attack anyone or anything that goes public just because they can have a feeling of winning/justification by doing so. Because of the cleaning worker issue while I was out of town, I did not expect you to write a good review anyway LOL. You actually brought your own linens and enjoyed the stay. Later the cleaning worker explained to me she fainted and went to E.R. so she did not finish the house. You made me smile, thanks!
Older and being fixed up but everything we needed. Thank you so much for he great stay
Excellent Location & Property
My family had a great stay at this property, the location was Excellent, the host was Gracious, the home was Spacious, and the grill kept everyone well fed.
Thank You for your Hospitality-
Technically the house was as advertised.....but the accommodations were sparsely furnished, and two of the bedrooms were really not bedrooms but large rooms. one of which held two bunk beds that were rickety and one had a day bed in a downstairs family room that had a dining room table in it. There was only one TV. The oven was full of ashes that we had to clean out to use. There was only one shower that really worked. There were several signs that warned of dire consequences and loss of the damage deposit, which made everyone nervous. How can you forbid smoking outside the house. Would never rent here again or recommend.
I listed 5 bedrooms but you counted 6 bedrooms including the living room with a day bed. Again, let me repeat my listing title: 5 bedroom house in North of Richmond! 3 bedrooms upstairs, 2 bedrooms downstairs, each floor has 1 living room. The downstairs has a queen bed bedroom and a dorm room which has 2 bunkers, which accommodate teenagers. You never mentioned about showers when you called me twice after check-in. 1 shower faucet was installed 8 months ago for $800. This fancy faucet is tricky and it takes a smart person a moment to figure out how to use it. 2 regular shower faucets were installed two years ago. So I do not know why you think they do not work. Upon arrival you didn't see there was a fourth bedroom downstairs so you called me to demand that I came to meet you immediately and accused me lying about my listing. The downstairs living room is never listed as a bedroom but you thought it was a bedroom. Then you called me again because you said the oven was dirty. I appreciate that you cleaned out the ashes because the previous group didn't clean out the ashes. I did mention in the house rule that users should clean out the grill. Upon departure, you mentioned to me that you had a good stay. And 30 days later you reviewed as not a good stay for you. I am so sorry that our 7 hour cleaning brought you a tough life here in Richmond stay. Hope you come back next time!
GREAT PLACE TO STAY....LOTS OF ROOM!!!
This property met all of our needs!! It's located in a nice section of the city, has a fenced in yard....great for the kids, and has plenty of room and sleeping area. It is also within walking distance to stores. We rented this as a place for a large part of our family to stay as my daughter was getting married in Richmond. it was great to have everyone together for meals and to have a "home base" to work from. No stuffy hotel rooms for us!! The kids had lots of room to play. The house is incredibly clean, and it's clear the owner takes pride in her property. She is easy to work with, responds to messages, and is very helpful. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the Richmond area, and if you are a large group, this is a great place! We would definitely stay here again!!
Thank you Kelly for your praise which shows that there are indeed decent people out there.
1. The rate is good for maximum 10 people. If your actual number of people staying in the house is more than the number that you have paid for, please pay for the extra persons. The nightly charge for each extra person is $30 if not paid in advance. I will share your cost of purchase the accidental damage protection insurance coverage, which is $59. 2.

This is not an event venue, if you host a dinner/event for your guests, you are responsible for any injuries/risks/consequences incurred and damages in this location. 4.
