Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect place. Exactly as described (actually better). The lights in the bathroom are a blast, the whole place was comfy and so-o--o clean. It was great to find that even though it is in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood, it was a quick hop over to restaurants and stores.

Birthday Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

We made a last minute decision to escape to Charlottesville for my birthday weekend - what a great choice to stay at the Pond House! Pictures don't do this little place justice. We had everything we needed and then some. The bed was incredibly comfy, and the bathroom was state of the art. The little kitchen was well stocked, so we were able to fix breakfast "at home" and relax the pace of the mornings. If my son ends up at UVA, I'll be a regular customer. Close proximity to all that we wanted to do! Thank you for being great hosts!

Great Stay, will stay again.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time here. It's close to everything. The unit had everything you could possibly need to stay for a night or a month. We met the owner upon loading up for checkout. Very friendly. Only issue we had was the heavy footsteps above or heads, but, it is a basement apartment, so that's too be expected. Overall, it was great and we would recommend this place for anyone.

Beautiful, peaceful, extremely comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay at the Pond House - John was incredibly helpful and kind, and the whole process was smoother than getting a hotel. On top of that, the apartment is beautiful and comfortable. The full kitchen was amazing (I should know, I spent an entire day baking!) and the bathroom (all custom tile and built by the owner) was amazing. On top of that, the little things (coffee, Netflix, digital locks, bookshelf) really made the experience purely enjoyable.

Great stay! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a great stay at the Pond House. Clean, bright, spacious, easy to get to. The home is in a nice neighborhood just north of Charlottesville. With 2 young kids (ages 5 and 3), it was nice to have a large space vs. a cramped hotel room. The kids especially loved the color-changing lights in the shower. Would definitely stay here again.

On our trip, we hiked Crabtree Falls and picked apples at Carter Mountain, visited multiple wineries & breweries, and enjoyed meals downtown and at the historic Michie Tavern. Great visit to Charlottesville!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the Pondhouse this past weekend to share in parent weekend for UVA. It turned out to be the perfect distance just outside the traffic in Charlottesville. We were able to easily travel back and forth between activities to refresh ourselves. The apartment exceeded our expectations in terms of size, comfort and amenities. The home is exceptionally clean and the owner provided all the little extras that make your stay feel like being at home. The attention to detail was superb. We will definitely choose this home over a hotel for our future visits.

Clean, but Awkward

  • 3 of 5

While it is a clean place with several amenities (TV, bathroom, fire place ambiance, etc.), it is awkward in that the stairs to the entrance to the apartment is located near the primary residence kitchen and living room windows. The residents are kind and friendly, but we had trouble "escaping" with the noises of footsteps above and the constant reminder of staying in their basement. Additionally, with the name "The Pond House" we anticipated a better/more accessible view and/or path to said pond. Unfortunately, neither were really possible.
