Interaction with guests

I work for a fortune 500 company downtown... Love what I do but it keeps me very busy from about 7:30 am - 6:30 pm - With that said, I may or may not be able to "entertain" during your stay. If I am not traveling, I ask that after 9:30 / 10 PM on weeknights for things to be somewhat quite and winding down in the house -

Other things to note

My home is well secured - The back and side gates remain locked at all times and there is security lighting and several security cameras outside.
2 rules - NO EXCEPTIONS
1. Please remove your shoes upon entering
2. Be nice to my animals, my dogs are super sweet and very loving - they do shed a little bit, they may demand belly or ear rubs - they may even greet you at the door with tail wags if you are lucky -- BUT if you are not a dog person, my home will NOT be a good fit.
If you are traveling with a pet, please note there will be an additional nightly and cleaning charge added.

Must tolerate or love dogs - as mine tend to think any and all visitors (with the exception of the mail carrier) are there to specifically visit with them.... Please remove your shoes at the door. PLEASE!
The space has hardwood flooring and rugs throughout you might want pack some comfy slippers.
Quiet activities preferred after 10 pm - 7 am.
No smoking allowed inside the house, but I will allow on side porch, side patio area and in the back and side gardens.
The dogs turn on the charm and appear "starved" when you go to the fridge or having your dinner- PLEASE do not give them human food... they love it but I assure you, we will not later.
There are 2 grills the gas grill is only used for veggies - the charcoal grill can be used if you are a carnivore.
Due to safety and liability reasons.... only Airbnb guests on my property.
Also, gates of back and side fencing remain locked to prevent dog escapes.
"NO", not at all, no way - do not even think about it -NO, to any illegal stuff - expect that is just understood -
Need anything else? Just ask and I'll try my best to accommodate you during your stay.
Have a wonderful time and I am thrilled to share my little slice of Richmond heaven with you.

Lee has a comfortable home in a quiet, walkable neighborhood. Guests should love dogs. Lee is a great host and will make you feel at home. The guest room is small, but well appointed. The bed is comfortable. There is a dresser and a small desk, as well as closet space. The shared bath is clean, organized and convenient to the guest room. The shared living/dining room and kitchen are furnished with fun and interesting things. Be prepared to share the living room with the dogs. The kitchen has everything you need to make full meals. The Bellevue neighborhood is great. There are several good restaurants within walking distance, as well as a coffee shop, wine/beer store, green grocer, and drug store. There are grocery stores, farmer's markets, and shopping within easy driving distance. Fun places to go out out night for eating, drinking and entertainment are a cheap and easy Uber ride away.

I stayed with Lee for 3 months due to work. I had an amazing time. The house is located in a beautiful area close to some restaurants and a coffee shop. I felt safe the entire time. The house was always clean. Her dogs are very friendly. Lee knows when to give you space and is always there if you don't want to go out to eat alone. I loved every minute of my experience. Fantastic house and host.

Having repairs done to home due to minor storm damage I did provide over 80 days notice to potential guest - ample time to find other lodging accommodations.

I LOVE Lee and her home! Lee is the perfect host. She knows when to stay close, and she knows when to give a guest some space. Generous and warm, excellent communicator, discreet, intuitive. She started off as my host, but now she is my friend. Her (URL HIDDEN) truly felt like my HOME away from home. What first attracted me to it was her quirky, fun decorating style. What sealed the deal is how very quiet and cozy and comfortable it is. You will not sleep on a better mattress. Large closet with plenty of hangers. Large table. Lots of drawer space. Sparkling clean shared bath(URL HIDDEN)

My fiancé and I stayed the weekend at Lee's place for my marathon. She went above and beyond making sure we were taken care of the entire weekend. She is the perfect host if you want to explore Richmond for the weekend. The bedroom is quaint and cozy with a very comfortable bed. Her house is just north of the city but in a very nice neighborhood. For anyone looking to explore downtown it is an easy $5 uber ride in to the city which we recommend. Definitely do not overlook this place if you need a place to stay in RVA. Thanks again Lee for everything!

Lee was there to welcome me when I arrived! She helped me with my bags and toured me around her cute home with lots of character. Lee is easy going and created a relaxed environment. My arrival turned in to a laid back conversation over a glass of wine and we decided to grab some dinner as we continued our discussion. Her energetic and lovable dogs were the highlight of arriving back each day to my home away from home. Evenings were very quiet which was perfect for the power hour of work, emails, and preparing for the next day. Lee made sure that I had a wonderful stay and her timing was seamless with her "Good Morning" notes which accompanied a hot cup of coffee within seconds of rising. I look forward to booking again with Lee and can't thank her enough for her hospitality. I definitely recommend but make sure you are a dog lover!

Very nice host, complete with exuberant canine welcoming committee. Enjoyed my stay with Lee. She even provided me with breakfast and offered a ride in the morning.

My name is Lee, nice to virtually meet you -
I was born and raised mostly in Virginia, I grew up about 25 miles south of Richmond and am a huge fan of the city; Richmond is amazing! Its a relatively small city, traffic is not bad and offers tons of AMAZING eats and drinks - Lots of local RVA brewery's and craft beers; delicious and diverse food options perfect for foodies - Our city is historical, urban and outdoorsy.

During the week I belong to the corporate world with the secret desire to one day re-lo somewhere balmy and warm year-round.
I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel for both business and pleasure - most recently returning from Brazil.
I share my small urban "cape-a-lowe" with 2 quadrupeds; Hansel and Cooper. Hans is an Affenpinscher and Coop, a short haired pointy eared "your guess is as good as mine - terrier mix". All are laid back - AFTER the initial meet and greet. If you are lucky enough to meet them, its quite possible they will may demand a few belly rubs and behind the ear scratches... I do often pet-sit a pug-terrier mix named Albert - he's quite the character. Full of energy and lots of love and snores....
Living this life and loving it - I try to make the best of every situation - with unexpected things sometimes coming at you full speed - My motto is channel your inner roller-derby girl - hip check all the nonsense out of the way and keep moving around life's track!!

Five things I can not live without:
Pets, Spotify, Nan's quilt, diet Pepsi, laughter (and sunshine but that would be six). My closest friends would describe me a happy-go lucky, laid back, advocate for those in need, hard working - and a mischievous streak!
