Experience vibrant life in Historic Church Hill, steps from hip cafes, nightlife, and culinary hotspots! We are outdoorsy health professionals (and a cat!) excited to welcome you to our hostel-like community and quirky, cluttered, historic home. This listing is among Airbnb's cheapest to cater to backpackers and touring cyclists and does not have privacy from the street or other guests staying in the same room or elsewhere in the house. We ask all guests for proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.

Ο χώρος
Come share in our hostel-like community and quirky historic home ♥ Our bright and spacious circa 1880 Victorian Queen Anne Style two-story house faces Jefferson Park and the city skyline and is fully stocked for your convenience. Our home features with elegant pocket doors, 10-foot high ceilings, and park-front, hand-blown bay windows, offering the best of a quaint bed and breakfast in the unbeatable location of Richmond’s most historic neighborhood. A brisk walk from the river system, hospital, downtown festivals, and groceries, we cater to cycling enthusiasts, historians, ghost hunters, medical trainees, remote workers, and everyone else!

Our vibe is closer to a co-op than an upscale hotel, and we love to have guests looking for that kind of communal experience in a great location. We have the most affordable options available on Airbnb for backpackers and cyclists who want to crash a night in our living room. Pets are welcome in our upstairs private rooms, including our park-facing bay windowed master bedroom. A word to the wise is that the extra dust and clutter we do our best to keep at bay is part of the charm of this old house and bustling community.

THIS LISTING

This listing is for Dormitory 100B—a pretty comfortable queen air mattress in our bay-windowed, park-facing living room, with access to our shared half bathroom downstairs and shared full bathroom upstairs. This reservation has an occupancy limit of two; however, there are two other listings that may be booked simultaneously on a first-come, first-served basis for a total of up to four guests (including two from this listing) staying in the living room.

As one of our most affordable rentals, please note that this space is in a common area and does not have curtains or blinds for privacy from the street or other guests staying in the same room or elsewhere in the house. Quiet hours are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., however, please expect some level of noise from the nearby kitchen and guests entering and exiting the house at weird hours of the day and night. Thank you in advance for kindly deflating and properly sanitizing and storing our queen air mattress and bedding each morning before 11 a.m.!


SOPHISTICATION IN THE HEART OF OLD RICHMOND

Our 2,700 square foot, five-bedroom home is outfitted with antique, solid wood furnishings and newly renovated bathrooms with attractive marble and slate tiling, plus endless hot water that mostly works as we expect! We host three private bedrooms, two public sleeping spaces, and full and half bathrooms for our Airbnb guests. For private events and parties, please ask about reserving the entire house for up to 20 overnight guests.


COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST

Our kitchen is fully equipped and stocked to save you time and effort grocery shopping. We offer a complimentary light breakfast with Nespresso coffee as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, ready-to-go refreshments, and complete do-it-yourself meals at-cost 24/7.


RELAXING PRIVATE BEDROOMS

As health professionals, we value our few hours of sleep more than almost anything else—and we went all out to welcome deep regenerative sleep, free from allergens, in our private bedrooms, with naturally hypoallergenic, organic bedding. We have sustainable, hand-quilted duvets and pillows with traceable, responsibly-sourced wool filling, and soft, cool, moisture-wicking, 100% organic bamboo sheets. These high-quality, natural fabrics are naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and dust mites and are temperature controlling, flame retardant, and toxic chemical-free.

Weighted blankets may be available for an extra cozy, warm nights’ sleep. Weighted blankets naturally lower stress hormone cortisol levels and cause your brain to release more sleep hormone melatonin and oxytocin. Guests new to weighted blankets are recommended to sleep with the weighted blanket over the lower body only for the first nights to prepare for bed and improve sleep habits.

We provide alternative bedding for bookings with dogs as well as lightweight twin sleeping bags for reservations with extra guests.


ALL-NATURAL SUSTAINABLE TOILETRIES

We will set up your stay with eco-friendly, hypoallergenic shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap and tree-free bamboo toilet paper. Our bath products are sourced from Public Goods and are free of parabens, sulfates, toxic chemicals, and unnecessary additives. Public Goods packaging is biodegradable, every shipment is carbon-offset, and a tree is planted for every order.


DAILY HOUSEKEEPING AND FRESH LINENS

We deep clean bedrooms before check-in and then once weekly with a linen change if requested. We clean common areas rotationally throughout the week. We provide white and gray or navy towels for guest use. (Since white towels are quick to stain, please use the gray and navy towels for the floor and removing makeup. We have reusable rags and cleaning supplies, as well as gray hand towels for drying dishes, in the kitchen.)


RESOURCES FOR REMOTE WORKERS & HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

For working professionals, our house is equipped for autonomous arrival and self check-in/check-out. We have top-of-the-line high speed Fios WiFi service for remote work, printing services, and office supplies at-cost, as well low cost international phone service with advanced notice. Our home is fully climate controlled with a dehumidifier and dual-zone central air conditioning and heating. We have in-house laundry services available with advanced notice, plus an iron, ironing board, and steam cleaner, and we are near a laundromat. Free street parking is plentifully available in front of our house and on all adjacent streets, and our block is safe at night.

We are a block away from Union Market, which has an outdoor patio and great coffee, and a short, downhill walk to Ironclad Coffee Roasters, one of the best remote work cafes in Richmond. Riverbend Coffee Co is temporarily closed due to the pandemic, but is another excellent location to be productive.

We have a fully equipped kitchen with a Nespresso coffee machine and other appliances and cookware, including a dishwasher, Instant Pot, coffee grinder, immersion blender, toaster oven/air fryer, bread maker, oil fryer, crock pot, kettle, portable induction stove, full-size electric stove, and full-size oven, as well as two refrigerators and a chest freezer. We have ingredients for quick meals available at-cost and are a short bicycle ride from the Market at 25th St, rated best grocery store in Richmond for customer service.

We have a variety of workspaces available in our house and keep workday essentials in stock, including umbrellas, single-use face masks, international charger converters, office supplies such as for mailing, printing, and laminating, and personal hygiene supplies, such as toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrushes, razors, floss, combs, tissues, shower caps, and deodorant.

For health workers, we are a half hour walk or flat bicycle ride to both VCU Health and Bon Secours. If you are a front-line health worker, please ask about discounted short- to long-term leases prior to booking to thank you for your service!


PERKS FOR PET OWNERS

We welcome friendly pets of all shapes and sizes to join our pack! Please book a private room, rather than a shared space, and include each pet as an additional guest to correctly account for the additional cleaning expenses. We also ask for prior notice to allow us to prepare the room with more durable bedding. We do have one XXL two-door dog crate that may be reserved, as well as basic pet supplies, cleaning solutions, towels, and laundry services. We have a fully fenced backyard (but it will not keep in an escape artist!) and are conveniently located for canine guests by Jefferson Park, the James River System, and the Church Hill dog park.

We do not recommend this rental for people with animal allergies, as we often have dogs, cats, and other pets as guests in the common areas and in guest bedrooms.


OUR RESIDENT CAT

We have a resident cat, Henry, who's a gorgeous rescue from the Virginia Beach SPCA who regularly gets up to antics. Henry is incredibly social, loves to play, and will run right past you into your bedroom if you aren't careful. Given the opportunity, he will tell you all about his day with a hilarious repertoire of meows, and he likes to mimic sounds, like a crying child, if he thinks it will grab your attention.

For the right price, Henry knows a few tricks, including sit, stand, jump, off, and fetch. He can open most unlocked doors, including those to our cabinets and pantry. Please be mindful and keep your groceries and our dishes safe, as he loves to shred food in bags, such as loaves of bread, and test gravity by knocking unattended items, like mugs and glasses, from tables and countertops. He is also very sneaky when it comes to trying to escape the house when the weather is cool. For this reason, we ask that you firmly close and lock every door when you exit the house. When he does get out, please give us a call and try to bring him back in with treats, because he's reckless in the road.

Henry gets along well with other cat-friendly dogs and cats, but is curious to a fault and will not back down if antagonized. His hair follicles are hypersensitive and he experiences pain that causes him to act irritable when pet multiple times below the head, especially in winter. He is not allowed on the counters, but will push boundaries with each new person. When he shows his soft belly, it's a trap!

We think he's hilarious, but he is definitely not your typical cat!


COMMUNITY VIBE

We love our home atmosphere, which is casual and community-oriented. We encourage our guests to follow basic hostel etiquette. We love when guests bring recipes to incorporate into our guest book, magnets, postcards, and stickers to decorate our chest freezer, and books to exchange with our little library. (A quick note for our book exchange before you grab a book to keep, though, is to please double check that it’s not one of the local history books we bought specifically for guests to read at the house!)

We keep our communal spaces tidy by collectively agreeing to pack up our belongings from the common areas before leaving for the day, clean up our dishes before leaving the kitchen, kitchenette, and dining areas, and not, ehem, share our dirty laundry. (Please do ask about our laundry service or the nearby laundromat!) We have spices and oils for cooking and love to share our food, with permission of course, and we do a deep cleaning of all the common areas in the house over the course of each week.

Thanks to our convenient location to Bon Secours and VCU Health, we often have traveling nurses, medical residents, and other health professionals who work odd hours. Our quiet hours are from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. both in our house and on our block, where we keep in mind our neighbors. Overnight, we appreciate silencing phones, refraining from using loud kitchen appliances, talking quietly, keeping off lights in common areas where people might be sleeping, and avoiding excessive drunkenness.

When booking, please keep in mind that certain activities are better suited for one of our private rooms. Consider booking one if you need to video conference or talk on your phone regularly, like to listen to music without headphones, prefer to fully unpack or have multiple suitcases, tend to snore or snooze your alarm, and/or are coming as a couple. Our private master bedroom is perfect for guests who love long showers or checking emails while on the toilet ☺

At a basic level, we hold our guests to consuming only their own food and drink, and to not stealing or partaking in criminal activity, not smoking in or on the property, and not inviting over or letting in anyone not part of their reservation without advanced notice and permission. Please do be mindful of your valuables, as we cannot assume responsibility for missing items. For greater security, all private rooms come with a unique lock and key.

At the end of your stay, we would love you to sign our guestbook and give us your feedback for us to share a unique part of your travel experiences with our future guests! We're still new to the Airbnb community and hugely appreciate your suggestions.

Πού θα βρίσκεστε

Ρίτσμοντ, Βιρτζίνια, Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες

We are centrally located in RVA’s oldest district, within a block of public transit and the local bike share station, and a short walk from top-rated dining and drinking, historical sites, parks and vistas. The James River System is within six city blocks of our house, featuring beaches, natural hiking trails, watersports, and the trailhead to the cyclist-favorite 52-mile Virginia Capital Trail to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown Settlement. (We have kayaks and road bicycles available to rent!) The Market at 25th is only a 5-minute bicycle ride and rated the best in town for customer service. The rest of Richmond is highly accessible by bicycle or public transit, and for visiting medical professionals, Bon Secours and VCU Health System are an easy, half-hour walk or short bus ride away. We have plentiful free parking in front of the house and on all the adjacent streets, and our block is safe at night.

For a quick tour from our house, stroll around Jefferson Park and to the Church Hill Overlook for the best city skyline viewing points and then head to Historic St. John's Church (the site of Patrick Henry's 1775 "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death" speech) and Libby Hill Park for the riverscape that named Richmond. Along the way, enjoy a sweet or savory delicacy from Proper Pie Co, a Parisian-quality croissant or quiche from Sub Rosa Bakery, and a scrumptious sandwich, salad, and draft pint from Union Market on their outdoor patio.

Spend a little more time to discover our funky festivals, ghastly ghost tours, sultry salsa dancing, and lively outdoor concert series all within walking distance. Downhill in Shockoe Bottom, visit the haunted Edgar Allen Poe Museum housed in Richmond's oldest original residential building and stop by Havana 59 for a night of boozy Latin dance. Stop in at Ironclad Coffee Roasters, one of the best cafes in Richmond for remote workers, or continue uphill via cobble-stoned Shockoe Slip to downtown Richmond and the Virginia Capitol.

Along the James River, head downstream via the Richmond City Canal to Stone Brewing Tap Room at Rocketts Landing, or venture upstream via the Pipeline Overlook to Brown’s Island for one of RVA’s Friday night concerts. Cross the Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge to lead rock climb the Manchester Wall, or alternatively, from Brown’s Island, follow the North Bank trail to Maymont or cross the bridge to Belle Isle to find mountain bike trails, bouldering, and river access.

Ask if we’re free to take you climbing or bicycling, or join us for seasonal evening dog training and yoga in the park.

PRIVATE YOGA AND BODYWORK

For a holistic vacation, schedule a private 30-, 60-, or 90-minute session with Zoe, a RYT-500 yoga instructor in-training. A 90-minute session is recommended for a chronic pain assessment, therapeutic exercise training, and targeted bodywork.

PRIVATE ROCK CLIMBING INTRODUCTION

Whether you are exploring rock climbing for the first time or are a seasoned top roper interested in sport, ask us to guide you through safe climbing practices at our nearby outdoor crags. Schedule a 2-hour session tailored to your needs. Learn about anchor-setting, harness safety, knots, belay device use, rope management, safe falling practices, and good climbing technique. For weekend trips, we may be joined by a geologist from the American Museum of Natural History.
