Recent Northern Virginia reviews

  • Comfortable, well provided townhouse with good location

    "The landlords have done a great job of providing a comfortable and well-stocked townhouse in a convenient North Alexandria location. It provides three good sleeping spaces. The appliances are good quality and fully updated. It served our needs perfectly and we would certainly put the townhouse at the top of our list for places to stay in coming summers, as our work takes us to Washington regularly. A comment on location: It is not terribly walkable, with the closest stores a 7-11 and grocery store just over 10 minutes walk down Glebe. Metro access: There is easily available, free three hour parking along Commonwealth, so we parked within two blocks of the King Street metro and then walked to the station. Room for improvement: For those who require a dark sleeping space (me!) the blinds in the master bedroom let in a considerable amount of light. Further, some lamps were not working in the second bedroom. For lounging and entertaining, it would have been nice if the living room had more comfortable sofas."

  • A Cozy Get Away

    "We stayed as a couple for a couple days in the pond suite in the wintertime. One beautiful day to hike Old Rag and a rainy day to visit the wineries and local life. It's a really nice get away. Practically everything you need is there. The animals are all around, chickens, goats, horses and all, making it quite peaceful. Enjoyed the fireplaces and the wood supply. A couple finer points, like almost everything you need is there, but then some things aren't like, dish washing liquid or sugar, which we didn't think to bring. And the chickens lay eggs every day but you have to buy them if you want them. For the overall cost per night, it would just be nice to be able to say everything is there that you need and you can almost say that. But it's 99% there so it's not a deal breaker, just nice touches that would be appreciated. Also a lot of rules about leaving. Do this, do that, start a load of towels or sheets. We left it very clean and did all that, but felt like usually you only do all this when staying with friends, and friends don't really charge you do they. But this is all sounding too negative when overall, you get a wonderful setting, beautiful views and great attractions close by. We had a wonderful time and are maybe more critical than we should be. To each there own. We would stay there again for sure."

  • Alexandria townhouse

    "What a great, relaxing place to come back to after a busy day of sightseeing! This condo is equipped with everything that you will need for your "home away from home". It was very comfortable and clean. We had no need for a car as the buses stop right across the street to take you to the metro station to transfer for wherever you want to go. Besides all of the Washington sights, be sure to visit Old Town Alexandria, which has many historical sights also. Dan was very easy to work with. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and family!"

  • Perfect little home away from home

    "My family of 4 (kids age 8 and 11) stayed at this precious little condo for a week while we toured DC. It was the perfect little home away from home. For such small square-footage, this condo felt much larger. The lay-out is great, with excellent storage space. It was a perfect space for the 4 of us to be able to spread out and enjoy our time. Everything was clean, well stocked, safe... we just loved it! And the neighborhood was just gorgeous and all the neighbors so friendly and helpful! The only issues we had here (which is in no way to the fault of the condo) was trying to figure out the buses. One day we had to leave really early, and the bus did not come according to schedule. One evening, we were to be out very late and the buses stopped servicing our area at 8. Simple fix, thanks to the advice of other reviewers here, was to drive to Capitol Mall, pay about $14 to park for the whole day, and take the metro rail in to the city. This VRBO definitely goes on my "favorites" list and if we ever decide to return, this is the place for us!"
