Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
All new kitchen and bath! (All guests are greeted in person and are required to present a valid government ID that may be copied for our records). This centrally located, newly converted warehouse condo features 100 year old tin ceilings, heart pine hardwoods, plus all new amenities include granite counters, stainless appliances, central air/heat, ceramic tile baths, dishwasher, washer/dryer! Optional late check-in available, 6-10pm for $30 fee. Travelers insurance always recommend.

The space
This is one of the most popular units in the entire building. Experience what downtown RVA is all about from this newly built condo overlooking West Broad. Located inside a circa 1909 furniture and music warehouse, this massive 22 month building renovation was done under Federal and State guidelines set forth by the Department of Historic Resources and the Commission of Architectural Review. We essentially maintained all the unique and classic features of this grand old building and renovated it completely to today's standards. We kept the quaint features like the 100 year old heart pine floors, original pressed-tin ceilings, wooden staircases and added new modern amenities such as multiple skylights, multiple atrium's and a gorgeous elevator to give you the best of both worlds. Simply put, it would be a challenge to find a better downtown location in the middle of everything! Unique coffee shops, clothing and music stores, fine restaurants and art galleries are just steps away out your door. This Monroe Ward neighborhood is located minutes from two universities (VCU and MCV). Situated across the street from the Virginia Repertory Theater and southern cuisine favorite, Comfort Restaurant. Our neighbors are the new Quirk Hotel and Rooftop Bar, Bar Solita (next door) City of Richmond Police Headquarters, Comfort, Max's, Perly's, Saison and Tarrants. If you love great food, Richmond is serious about delivering meals and spaces that exceed your expectations. Simply put, this is a great city-central location in the heart of downtown that offers everything to the discerning Richmond traveler or businessperson.

Guest access
You must be at least 25 years of age to book a condo with us.

Sorry, we do not accept 3rd-party reservations. That's an Airbnb Rule too. The person belonging to the AirBnB account making the reservation must be the one staying with us. See "House Rules" under "Booking" for more information. Checkin is 3-6pm, late checkin available for $30 fee between 6 and 10 PM (anything past 10 PM would incur a $20 fee for every 30 minutes or fraction thereof). Late check-in is subject to staffing availability (minimum 48 hours notice required), but we will try to accommodate you.

We greet all guests arriving in person. Upon arrival, guests will be required to present a valid government ID to make a copy of and keep for our records. At this time you will also need to send us a confirmation text through the Airbnb website. After personal greeting from Via Airbnb website, guests will be texted how to enter the building. Also via Airbnb text message, guests will be given instructions on how to enter their apartment door which will contain a key to enter their room. This is a fully functioning, multi level building that has been converted into luxury apartments and is the home to several first floor businesses. This is a "Quiet Building" we do ask that you keep in mind our yearly residents and refrain from making any disturbances or loud noises during your visit.

Other things to note
This location has been my part of town for over 28 years and gets a 99 out of 100 on a walking score so bring some comfortable sneakers. Besides great restaurants all around, if you love live music we have several recommendations. For local jazz - Emilio's and the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (Thursday nights are always a favorite for both). Want some rock and roll on a big stage? Then check out "The National", its just few blocks down the street. How about Americana to Blues? Try Poe's Pub (a local hangout featuring lots of local artists and musicians). Also First Fridays Art Walk take place every First Friday of the month with several thousand art lovers walking the neighborhood while checking out the galleries and enjoying all that this area has to offer. In June check out Broad Appetit it is one of the largest food festivals in the state. Attendance records have exceeded upwards of 40,000 persons in just one Sunday afternoon!

Richmond, Virginia, United States

Theaters, restaurants, galleries and shops all contribute to make this a prime city-central location. The "Arts District" and the surrounding neighborhood of Jackson Ward has experienced massive growth and revitalization over the past several years. Over 450 million dollars has been invested over the past ten years in this downtown area. Metro Sound & Music was one of the first company's to relaunch in downtown after many businesses had left the neighborhood for the suburbs. We opened our high-end music store in a rather run down neighborhood in 1991. Fast forward 28 years and now you have a neighborhood that has sprung back to life! Downtown Richmond is now a sought after location for both new businesses and tourists alike. Located just a block away is the city's only 5-star hotel - The Jefferson Hotel and right next door is the City of Richmond Police Headquarters. Richmond has a ton of festivals and always has something going on. There is lots to see and do in this historic town. The YMCA is about 2 blocks away (with a $40 monthly visitor pass), Abner Park and the new Maggie Walker statue and plaza are across the street, several coffee and breakfast shops are just footsteps away.

I'm a musician and businessman and have toured with bands from France to Florida. Richmond has been my home for over 35 years. I also work in construction and project development. In 2017, I renovated a set of 110 year old historic warehouses (all 40,000 square feet) that house my music business into luxury apartments, (reserving several of the best units exclusively for short term guests). Upon graduating VCU, I headed downtown and started Metro Sound & Music - a musical instrument business that specializes in vintage guitars and amplifiers. Since 1991 I have been operating on the first floor of this Airbnb location where the condo's are located. I consider our music store as one of the coolest "leasing offices" in the world, surrounded by hundreds of guitars, amplifiers, keyboards and drums. During business hours, Tues-Sat from 11-6pm, you may find yourself checking-in to your condo from our showroom. Zakk Wylde, Joe Walsh, Joe Bonamassa, Gene Simmons, Warren Haynes, Allan Woody, Cracker, New York Dolls, Tame Impala, Stone Temple Pilots, Phish, Widespread Panic, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a whole lot more have all been through our doors! For 29 years we have managed to survive with lots of creativity and hard work. My staff and I are here to help you make the most of your visit in RVA. We look forward to you staying with us, come check out a our shop and say hello! We love visitors!

During your stay
We will meet you to give you access and to welcome you to your new location. If you are in need of anything else we will provide you with all the necessary contact information right here (once you are booked). We also are on-site mostly Tuesday through Saturday, 11am to 6pm. Many of our tenants like knowing we are close by, yet they have their very own private space in which to come and go and enjoy everything that beautiful and historic downtown RVA has to offer. If you need a recommendation for a good restaurant or entertainment venue we could give you all sorts of ideas.
