Property description

This spacious high rise condo is my vacation home when I need to 'get away'. The buiding was constructed in the 1960s and is of rock solid construction. It sits high in the sky in the heart of Alexandria and is the perfect short-term residence for professionals, corporate executives, or vacationers.

There are sweeping views of Washington DC from the living room, kitchen, bedroom, and from the balcony off the living room.

The living room television has Xfinity (Comcast) HD cable service with hundreds of channels and many free, on-demand movies. Broadband Internet access is provided throughout the house.

I am rather fond of my home, but my opinion is shared by others in their reviews. While I appreciate the compliments, the point is that this home is more than just a place to store your suitcase while you are visiting Washington. It will be part of the experience itself.

Located in Shirlington Alexandria high up on a strategic Civil war hill, My condo offers incredible views of Washington's famous skyline and is just 5 minutes to downtown, Reagan Airport, New MD Casinos, Nationals ballpark. You can reach any other part of the City (National Cathedral, National Zoo, Dupont Circle, etc.) in 20 minutes or less. Middleburg, VA is 30 minutes away, Baltimore and Dulles are 30-45 minutes away. A car is most useful, but public transportation is available just one block away.

Shirlington is a safe, quiet, upscale neighborhood. Several of DC's best restaurants are within 3 miles, including French, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Middle Eastern, and one of the best pizzeria's in town. Finally, one of the best features of my neighborhood is that it is one of the very few places in DC where there is never a parking problem for you or your guests! Parking spaces abound in our gigantic parking lot.

To make certain that your stay is trouble-free, I reside close by ready to assist you as necessary.

In my humble opinion, this is the best accommodation value in DC. So why stay in a pricey DC hotel or sterile corporate apartment when my house offers twice as much for half the price? Deal directly with the owner, not an agent or property manager. This is one of the best accommodation values in DC!

NOTE: Maximum of three persons. Minimum stay of three days. Please check my availability calendar before making an inquiry.
