  • Perfect!

    "We came to the DC area with our kids for Spring Break. This property was absolutely perfect! It was a wonderful size for our family of five. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The neighborhood is quiet and the house has everything you would need. The location is only about a half a mile from the Metro. Easily walk able, so we hardly used our car! Old Town Alexandria has some great shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend this property!"

  • Excellent Getaway

    "This was the second annual weekend getaway for the group of mid-20 year old college buddies scattered throughout the state. This trip included a bachelor party twist. We spent most of our time out on the shooting range and enjoyed all the outdoor space the farm had to offer. The owners are welcoming and willing to allow us to have our space, all while being available to help with any request. Truly a remote location away from any sort of busyness that comes with every day life. This is a great spot for all ages and we will certainly be back in the future. Thanks again!"

  • Exactly what we wanted! Close to everything * Comfortable * High End Location

    "We LOVED our stay! There were five of us - three adults, and two kids (ages 10 and 13). We had more than enough room for everyone. I was AMAZED by the size of the property. I thought we'd be squeezing into a tiny space, but was wrong! The apartment is nice and roomy - a nice big living room, fully kitchen, dining area, large bedrooms, big bathrooms, plenty of storage, and a nice balcony! The balcony overlooks a park where we went for runs, played on the playground, watched a local soccer game, etc. Walk out the backdoor and right into Nordstroms! Walk one minute more and arrive at the metro. We took the metro all over because it was so convenient. The food options are many - food court at the mall, casual restaurants literally across the street, small diverse cafes around the corner. I even did some grocery shopping by walking to Harris Teeter. I'm trying to think of anything that I wish had been different, but I can't think of anything! Staying here was like having the comfort of home with the excitement and luxury of vacationing in a big city. JUST RIGHT! We'll recommend the property to friends and hope to be back ourselves!"
