Why Janice Kavanagh chose Charlottesville

The Boxwood Bungalow is a unique alternative to a hotel. This property offers a convenient location to downtown, UVA, restaurants, shops and historic sights. Located on a quiet residential street with beautiful views of the sunrise and Carter's Mountain. I personally maintain and manage this property guaranteeing your satisfaction, superior cleanliness. This property is ideal as it is just minutes away from the Belmont restaurants: MAS, The Local, Tavola but you dont have the noise or traffic like other Belmont properties due to the Boxwood Bungalow's location on a quiet residential street..

Beautiful antique furnishings, lush linens, down comforters & pillows, plush towels, specialty soaps, provides every guest quality accommodations.

Clean, conveniently located property

  • 4 of 5

The property was as described in the description - a small, two bedroom cottage with a seating area, microwave, coffee maker and fridge. The fridge contained a couple of bottles of water and some half and half, which was rancid. There is satellite television available. The owner left some useful tourist information, breakfast bars and oranges. The property is part of the owner's home, which adjoins via two doors to the rear of the main seating area. There is parking on the property. The owner made check in very easy. The property was found clean, beautifully decorated and with inspection certificates from local authorities. The property is a ten minute walk from downtown Charlottesville and the tourist trolley service. We were able to drive to Montecello within about ten minutes. The direct Belmont area is rather run down, but it appears to be safe and there are some great restaurants and bars very close by. We enjoyed Mas (a tapas restaurant) in Belmont and Citizen Burger in Charlottesville. There is not much room to eat in the cottage itself - which was fine for us. It's a good alternative to staying in a hotel.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear the half and half had gone bad, would have happily replaced it. Belmont is a neighborhood in transition, but does offer some of the best dining options in the city.

Charming Bungalow for Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this lovely bungalow for my birthday weekend getaway. Every possible detail has been covered to make Boxwood Bungalow feel so very welcoming and comfortable. It is immaculate, beautifully decorated, and ever so charming! The lovely fresh flowers in the living room and bedroom were an extra special touch. We shopped at the downtown mall, toured several wineries, and walked to dinner to Tavola and MAS - both fabulous! We also enjoyed a delicious brunch at La Taza. Janice, it was so nice to meet you, and thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable. We look forward to another stay at the bungalow on our next trip to Charlottesville.

Anniversary Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I spend our 2nd wedding anniversary at this cute bungalow in Charlottesville and it was perfect! Walking distance to the Downtown Mall area and we were only 5-15 min away from MULTIPLE vineyards. The house itself was clean and well maintained with provided amenities such as snacks, coffee, fruit, etc. The owner lives in the back part of the house in a separate section, but as guests, we had complete privacy. Not only would I recommend this house to friends, but we have actually talked about returning to the home at a later date!

Wonderful stay, charming bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful girls weekend stay at this charming bungalow. Situated perfectly in Belmont, walking distance to several restaurants including MAS, as well as a short 10 minute walk to the downtown mall. It also is very close to the University of Virginia. The place is updated with all of the features needed for a weekend, and very tastefully decorated. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because there is one bedroom with a full bed and it's a little tight for two people, although the place is perfect for a couple and two others, or a family of 4. Janice was wonderful in providing all of the amenities and was very helpful. Overall, we had a great time and would stay again.

Convenient Bungalow Full of Charm!

  • 5 of 5

I just can't say enough good things about this rental. My family stays at vacation rentals a few times a year, and I can honestly say this was the nicest one we have ever seen! The house is beautifully and thoughtfully restored; everything is pristine and in great condition. Ever stayed at a rental and suspected that it was decorated with old cast-offs from the owner's house? Not at Boxwood bunglalow! The furniture, the fixtures, the linens are all of great quality. The towels are fluffy and soft...and did I mention the jacuzzi tub? Everything was just as described...or usually even better.

Janice is a very thoughtful hostess. She also handeled communication in a very timely and friendly manner. I didn't meet her, but I have a feeling that she asked herself what she enjoyed while traveling, and then furnished this house accordingly. There are varied and plentiful snacks provided, as well as juice and coffee. Janice even asked me in advance if we wanted anything in particular for our coffee, and then supplied us with the very specific kind of milk I need due to some health issues. We loved drinking our morning coffee on the front porch.

The house is located on a quiet residential street, yet is a short walk to coffee, restaurants, and the Charlottesville pedestrian mall. There is a well maintained yard with lovely plantings - we were lucky enough to be there when the azaleas and lilacs were in bloom.

All in all, it was a great weekend, and the house would be my first choice of place to stay should we ever go back to Charlottesville.

Wonderful autumn weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful autumn weekend in Charlottesville, visiting our daughter at UVA for parents weekend. The bungalow was a perfect place for us to stay, more spacious and with much more warmth and character than any hotel in the area could have provided. And there are several delightful restaurants just a stroll up the street. It is a charming lodging option and we will surely be back.
