Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Lowest prices of the year are now! All new kitchen and bath! (We greet all guests in person upon arrival, you will be required to present a valid government ID to make a copy of 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, washer/dryer! Optional late check-in available, 6-10pm for $30 fee. Travelers insurance recommended.

The space
This downtown location features all new modern amenities including an in-unit washer/dryer, dishwasher, ice-maker, HVAC and more! A recent two-year renovation from the top to bottom has really set this apart. Exposed brick walls give this space lots of charm and warmth. We kept the best architectural features essentially giving the building a complete makeover with refinished wood floors, huge ceilings, soundproofed walls, new atrium's, skylights, exits, fire separation throughout. This was one big job that brought this beautiful old building back to full use and capacity! Check our excellent reviews and see what they say about being a guest here is all about!

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
A drop off for the 50 million dollar Pulse Rapid Transit bus system is now built on Broad Street in front of the building. The Pulse will get you from one end of town to the other in a matter of minutes! There's also lots to do and see around here. Just ask us for any ideas about venues, shopping or restaurants. Downtown RVA has a lot to offer the traveler both in terms of activities and fine cuisine. Come see for yourself why I have made this location my home for the past 29 years.

Location

Richmond, Virginia, United States

I've been a full-time resident of this neighborhood since 1991. That's when I started my music business across the street. I've watched it go from a dismal and desolate location to the very cool and vibrant central city location that it has now become. I consider myself somewhat of a settler because this area used to be the "Wild West" of Richmond. Not anymore, there has been nearly $500 million invested in the Richmond downtown area over the past several years. Today, this area has become a destination location for both business and pleasure with lots to do and see. I think you would love to spend some time in this old and historic part of town. I feel fortunate to call this part of town my home.

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
My staff and I work on the first floor at Metro Sound, the oldest music retail store in the downtown Richmond area. We are here generally from Tuesday through Saturday and are easily available after hours as well by calling the shops main number (that they block here) so google it. You can interact with us as much or as little as your prefer. You will have your very own beautiful space all to yourself. We only ask that you please be respectful of the noise and be mindful of our year-round tenants. This is a quiet building and I want it to remain as such.
