  • An absolutely amazing time

    "We didn't get to meet Peyton but, Kenny made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The cottage was beautiful, the people were friendly and the food was wonderful. I can't wait to go back! Clarke & Cindy"

  • Great Spot

    "Great Spot to get away from it. Lovely quiet community with most amenities a short drive away. Superb for those wanting to brush up on civil war history, the area drips with it! Most things you need are in the house, but would say that it would have been nice to have had some outdoor furniture for the deck as it was summer and perhaps a convenient gas BBQ, but this doesn't detract from the overall place. Great spot. Many thanks!"

  • Lovely vacation getaway

    "My husband & I truly enjoyed our stay. The studio apartment is about the size of a hotel room, and quite comfortable. The kitchen area was well-equipped with a fridge, microwave, toaster-oven, and a supply of dishes and cutlery. Linda even provided delicious muffins for our first breakfast - so thoughtful! Linda also compiled several binders full of local sightseeing information, including maps, coupons, and two re-fillable Metro cards. She also allowed us to use her washer/dryer mid-week, so we didn't have to pack so much. It's personal touches such as these that make us appreciate staying in a vacation rental over an impersonal chain hotel. The home is located in a scenic historic neighborhood, and we enjoyed looking at the variety of beautiful homes during our walk to the Metro. We'd walk down to the train station, and take the Metro up to DC for the day. In the evening we'd return to Alexandria where we'd hop on the free trolley and ride down King street until we saw a restaurant to try. The proximity to public transportation was a great plus - we decided to take the Amtrak train up from Florida because the Amtrak stop is the same as the Metro, and then flew home out of Reagan National which was just a couple Metro stops away. The only cautionary note I'll mention for future guests is the walk from the Metro to the apartment. It is uphill for most of the walk, which may be a bit of a challenge for some older folks. However, public transportation is readily available, and a taxi from the Metro station to the apartment only costs around $7 (including tip) if your feet hurt after a day of sightseeing! Thank you again, Linda & Willie, for sharing your hospitality and your studio apartment."

  • 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."
