Our Victorian style apt. is centrally located in the beautiful neighborhood of Fry Springs. It's off the main st so it's peaceful and quiet but 1min walk to PublicTransit, 5min walk to restaurants, cafes, and gorgeous trails, 5min drive to UVa & 10 min drive to Historic Down Town. Parking Included!
Our apt. is in a 100 year old building that used to be a boarding house for young women. It's on the second floor so it has privacy and nice views. There is also a claw foot tub, which is large and amazing for bathing. Fully stocked kitchen, clean sheets and towels and two parking spaces.
Parking, WiFi, shower and tub, fully stocked kitchen, ironing board & iron
Interaction with guests
We will not be at the house but are staying close by if you need anything.
Other things to note
We have a cute little porch with a couple of chairs you can enjoy a morning coffee and views to the stadium and Fry Springs.
Enjoy your stay and our home but please be respectful of our things and our space; leave things as you find them:) Also please be mindful of noise levels. It is an old building so remember to keep music and general noise down after 10pm if it's a weeknight and after 12am on fri and sat nights.
Smoking allowed only on the front porch (outside the kitchen), we prefer no-smoking if possible. The back porch belongs to our neighbor and there is no smoking on that porch.
Small intimate gatherings ok but no parties.
From May 12 - 27, 2018 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
I am a composer from Mexico City and did my grad studies at Mills College where my wife Virginia (Gigi) was getting her degree in Comparative Literature. Gigi and I now live in Charlottesville VA where I am getting my PHD in Composition and Computer Technologies at UVa.
Before moving to the States I worked for The Mexican Institute for Radio and Radio UNAM in Mexico City doing programs on contemporary music and composers. Gigi grew up on a cattle ranch in California and worked in Events in the San Francisco bay area. She is currently working on her business providing financial basics for women.
We love the outdoors; hiking, camping and exploring. -from the forests to the ocean- If you have any places to suggest for us to travel and see, please share.
Gigi and I enjoy road tripping, traveling in general and meeting new people. We are relatively new to BnB but have had a great experience everywhere we've stayed and have enjoyed getting to know the folks who have stayed with us.
I enjoy playing tennis, running, a good drink and interesting conversation. Gigi loves dancing, horseback riding and reading a great novel.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
