***In the spirit of Metta, we are taking every precaution to maintain clean & healthy home for our guests and our family by following CDC best practices. The Metta Gem C'ville is a newly renovated two bedroom bungalow appointed with the guiding principles of Metta. In a society choked by an endless stream of information and mass-production, our two bedroom home should feel like a sanctuary: a harmonious space of realignment. Go for a quick stroll or an urban hike in this big town in a small city. Close to UVA, a cluster of fabulous restaurants, & a short drive to many picturesque sites surrounding Charlottesville.

This Gem is full of all the amenities you will need to enjoy your Metta stay. The moment you enter hang your things and make yourself right at home. We have a smart TV (Hulu, Netflix, amazon, pandora and a few other streaming apps are loaded) mounted over the fireplace visible from the living room, kitchen island, and dining area. The mini split unit on the wall is operated via a remote control. Please be sure to leave it on the coffee table. This provides an energy and economical heating and air-conditioning solution. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials even the locally roasted ( by Lamplighter in Richmond) Metta Coffee - STIR.

You are renting the upstairs of the house; a two bedroom bungalow. Please note- there is a one bedroom studio downstairs (our other listing, the Metta Grotto). Please be a good neighbor and allow everyone to enjoy their stay by being cognizant of noise.

The Metta Gem's entrance is the front door, the side door on the right side of the house is reserved for the Metta Grotto (the one bedroom studio located in the basement). The only potential shared space is the washer dryer area.

We provide a contactless check in process by providing a unique door code to enter the house. We have a great back yard space with charcoal grill and fire pit!

The Metta Gem is centrally located between North Downtown and the University of Virginia. Located between Preston Ave. and Main Street.

* NO SMOKING anywhere inside the home. You may smoke on the porch or outback, be sure you extinguish what you are smoking before leaving unattended. Be sure that all doors, windows and any opening where some may enter the house are closed and secured.
