The 4-acre grounds and gardens around the house are fenced and there is an electric gate for your security.

About Simon Banner

I am passionate about writing, books, film, art and nature, to name a few things, and I love to practise speaking French.

Beautiful and nice place

My friends and I came up for a fun weekend of wineries and relaxing; this was the perfect place! Simon was so nice, and both dogs (Pebbles & Snowy) were very sweet! Very impressed and will recommend this house to anyone!

Cute and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly greeted by Simon and his two friendly dogs when we arrived. Simon went over all we needed to know about the apartment and gave us a quick tour. The apartment was tastefully decorated and meticulously clean. We visited Monticello while we were there and were grateful for a homey place to return to after a long day. We chatted with Simon about the area and he had a few recommendations for dinner that were nearby. There was quite a large selection of DVDs from which to choose when it was time to wind down for the night. I would definitely recommend the property.

An amazing, relaxing weekend in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2-year-old son, and I stayed in Simon's Garden Apartment for the weekend while visiting Charlottesville, just a few miles away. We had a great time. Simon was a wonderful host. The fridge was stocked and the shelves were overflowing with movies to watch. His home and guest apartment are beautiful. We can't wait to return again to see the gardens next year. Our son and Simon's dog Snowy became buddies. Both she and his older brother Pebbles were very sweet and a joy to be around.

Lovely peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely stay here again. We visited the area for wine tastings and an event at Veritas Winery. This location was perfect. 4 adults and a baby, and we fit fairly comfortably (after figuring out that the pack n play fit into the closet!) Simon was an absolute delight, and a very gracious host! There was a multitude of snacks and coffee, and more dvds than I have ever seen. (This is because there is no actual tv service. The WiFi was spotty, which made streaming the Olympics a bit difficult, but we managed!) There is no kitchen, so you have to wash dishes in the bathroom sink (when we were leaving Simon told us to just leave them!) The window in the bathroom could use a better covering as it looks out to the main path/ garden, and you feel a little exposed. Again, we had a great time and will stay here again!

bucolic, peaceful, remote, and meditative!

  • 5 of 5

I found the house to be lovely and charming. It was clean, well stocked with coffee, tea, and many other amenities. Many movies were available, and, of course, Simon Banner was the perfect host, willing to stay up later for our arrival. I would easily rate this getaway in the top 1% of all the places I've stayed in the US and abroad, over the past 40 years. I'm already planning a return trip, and certainly will stay there again, with my wife.

Two college friends and I enjoyed our three-night stay at this lovely garden apartment.The decor was delightful and the owner, Simon, was charming and very gracious. His two dogs, Pebbles and Snowy, were an added bonus!
