About this listing

This home was completely renovated at the end of 2014 and has completely new wiring, plumbing, and fixtures. It's spacious and modern without losing that classic feel. I love it, and I'm sure you'll love it, too.

The space

Note: my mother has moved into this room, and while it is clean, I don't want to bother removing her personal touches just because she's out of town. Anyway—
It's a completely refurbished historic house. It has new everything, most notably the exquisite kitchen full of stainless steel appliances. The room I am offering is the master suite, with ensuite full bath, a queen bed, three big windows, and new carpet. Other common areas include side/front/back yard, porch, dining, and living room. I have this listed for two guests, but I have enough room that I could potentially accomodate many, many times more, assuming the remaining guests have something to sleep on besides the one available bed.

Guest access

Guests may use the porch, living room, back/side/front yards, and 1.5 of the 2.5 bathrooms. If you arrive late, are too exhausted for shopping and need to borrow some bathing supplies, just ask.

Interaction with guests

It's totally up to you to what degree you would care to interact. My cat must stay inside, but loves a good petting.

Other things to note

Caged pets are fine. Service animals are alright, as they are usually well behaved, but I'd rather not have anything bigger than a fish, otherwise.

Emily's place was exactly as described. She throughly cleaned her place for us immediately before we arrived, and was very accommodating to our arrival and departure schedule. Would stay again!

Emily was a great host-- she was super accommodating even with our quick stay. The bedroom and connected bathroom were nice and clean. This location is slightly out of the way from Richmond's downtown, but for our first night this was not a concern. She was sweet to have coffee & cookies to share with us, on our early morning out. Her Hawaiian cats are total cuties!

I really enjoyed my stay at Emily's duplex. Everything pictured is pretty much exactly what you will see. Her house was very inviting, neat, spacious, clean, and tidy. The bedroom was perfect, a nice big bed awaits, and since its the master suite you have a private bathroom. The room has lots of windows that let in all sorts of natural light, and lots of air. The windows were also tinted which was great for letting in light while also giving you privacy. Emily was a very accommodating host. For example, I came with a bicycle, and rather than leaving it locked up outside over night, I was allowed to bring it inside, just as I do at home to protect from thieves and shelter it from the elements. Her kitchen was also at my disposal though I only used her fridge and her pantry, but has everything one would need. Her two cats were super adorable, and one in particular was really friendly and affectionate throughout the duration of my stay. They were great company and very well behaved. The location itself was great. Church Hill is a stones throw away from Libby Hill Park, Shockoe Hill and Shockoe Bottom, and before you know it you are downtown. There are so many shops, restaurants, and cafes you wont be able to visit them all.

I'm a weirdo artist that doesn't see enough sunlight. My neighbors think I'm a witch, but the truth is I just love to cook spicy foods.
