The space
Welcome to the Tora room! This room is one of 3 upstairs bedrooms in our historic home (built in 1893). We live here full-time so it will be a shared living space with us and sometimes another Airbnb guest in the 3rd bedroom.

Please use good self-awareness when booking with us (or any Airbnb) to ensure our place will be a good fit for your needs. We love hosting all kinds of people but have found that those over age 50 looking for upscale accommodations tend not to have as great of an experience with our shared space listings and may be better off booking a private suite or full apartment. Additionally, we absolutely love hosting couples, they are some of our favorite guests. However, if you are looking for a primarily romantic time, this is not the right listing for you!

You must be OK with sharing a bathroom/shower and kitchen with us and other guests, and possess the conscientiousness and patience that this can sometimes require (and please no excessively long showers or baths). We have been Airbnb Superhosts for over 2 years and are truly enjoying sharing our beautiful home with Richmond's many visitors!

Guest access
You will have full access to the large kitchen and dining area, bathrooms (including jacuzzi tub), private outdoor deck with table and chairs, and of course, your personal room. We ask that you fully clean up after yourself if cooking or using the kitchen or bathroom. If you use the patio, please close the door behind you and ensure cats do not get outside. Laundry use is open to guests staying 3 or more days and just needs to be pre-scheduled with host.
Also, we do not typically allow access into our living rooms, and the basement and other bedrooms are off-limits to guests. There is signage to mark these areas to avoid confusion.

Other things to note
No live TV or cable! There is a Roku TV with Netflix and Hulu for guest use.

Richmond, Virginia, United States

Richmond locals know that the Fan is the place to be. An eclectic mix of residential and commercial spaces, this is where RVA natives come for their favorite shops, bars, and restaurants. Additionally, if you are a fan of historic architecture spanning over 2 centuries, the Fan is the place to visit. Walking around neighboring streets, you will find a variety of architectural styles such as Italianate, Richardsonian Romanesque, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Bungalow, American Foursquare, Tudor Revival, Spanish Colonial, and Art Deco. (Not to mention some impressive front yard gardens!) We live right where the residential neighborhoods become mixed use, so there are plenty of shops to pop into or restaurants to try as you explore the beauty and culture of the area.

Hello! I'm Christy, a social worker living in Richmond with my husband Derek, who is a physical therapist and massage therapist (fun fact, he is the massage therapist for the VCU men's basketball team. Go Rams!). When not working, we enjoy visiting museums, music (Derek is also a DJ), reading, games, and spending time with friends. We have also been working hard to begin sharing our historic home on Airbnb! Though I am a transplant to Richmond (originally from the DC area), I love the beautiful architecture and historic feel of this city, as well as the myriad of things to do. Derek is from Richmond and knows the area well, and we are both happy to give recommendations for anything you'd like to do during your stay. As "helping professionals" we try to anticipate the needs of our visitors and do our best to help them have a great experience here. We hope you'll fall in love with Richmond as we have! Of course, we love to travel, but rather than see the tourist sights, we prefer to get a sense of what natives to the area love about their chosen city. As guests, we are friendly, respectful, easygoing, and adventurous. However, to be honest, I (Christy) am kind of a homebody! This definitely influences my hosting style, as I try to create a "home away from home" experience as much as possible for our guests. Though I am a bit more quiet/introverted, Derek is very outgoing and is happy to chat anytime he is available. We both look forward to meeting you!
