About the Property
Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + LR + Den, 2.5+ Baths, Sleeps 6 comfortably
Uber and drive/park work great according to all our clients! NOT WALKING DISTANCE TO METRORAIL, but Uber is $10-18 each way depending on where downtown you're headed, and it's normally about a 20 MINUTE DRIVE AND PARK IN DC at 9:30 AM, AS YOU CAN SEE FROM OUR CLIENTS' REVIEWS. The Smithsonians open at 10, so you're ready for fun! No walking to a Metro station and waiting for a train and line changes, and the parking cost per day is similar to the Metro fares for a group of four.
FAR LARGER (1800 sq. ft.) than a condo, plus you have a big elevated deck in the backyard to enjoy fresh air in the shade of trees, and a Weber barbecue for your grilling pleasure.
BEST VRBO VALUE IN THE DC AREA that sleeps 6 and has two full baths (plus two half baths). Far lower cost than two tiny, boring rooms at the nearby Best Western Pentagon motel.

VERY UNLIKELY TO ALLOW A MID-WEEK ARRIVAL AND/OR DEPARTURE March through August, unless it's within a month of arrival. Our clients overwhelmingly prefer Saturday arrivals and/or departures and we end up nearly fully booked each year during high season. However, just ask, because we're always happy to provide a proposal.
COMPLETELY RENOVATED top to bottom. Much nicer than when we bought it brand-new in 1980. Kitchen and all baths gutted and replaced with premium materials. Granite countertops kitchen and all baths, all new deluxe appliances, custom cherry cabinets, refinished hardwood floors, custom shower and bathtub, stainless plumbing fixtures, lush carpeting, composite deck, superb heat pump, etc., etc., VERY NICE. Lovely and well-equipped, 2 miles due-south of the Pentagon, at the northern edge of Alexandria.
EQUIPPED AS A TRUE HOME because we visit for two months every year. NOT "JUST" A VACATION HOME. We love to entertain, so the kitchen is particularly well equipped, with a full range of spices, oils, pans, utensils, small appliances.
Our location is very convenient to the District. Outside of rush hours it's routinely about 10 minutes to the Lincoln Memorial. You can certainly use Metrorail if you wish, by taking the convenient bus from right outside our little community entrance to/from the Pentagon Metrorail station in 16 minutes during rush hours, or drive/uber/cab in less than 10 minutes to two Metrorail stops. Uber for 4 people from here to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum is $10-14.
Quiet, friendly, safe little 37 unit community. Many of the residents have been in our home for parties. Two families who are close friends live on either side of our place.
The master bedroom has a king bed and ensuite bath with shower. The other bedroom is master-size, because we took out a wall between two small bedrooms. It has a queen bed, and the full bath with tub/shower is 7 feet from the bedroom door. The basement has a spacious family room with fireplace. This can also be a comfortable fairly private bedroom away from the main floor. It has a high-quality queen sleeper couch with memory foam pad and a 1/2 bath. Yet another 1/2 bath on the main floor, with a beautiful high-ceiling living room and dining area with a table that can seat 10.
FREE OFF-STREET PARKING, with a marked, permanently reserved spot at the front door plus a parking pass to use an unreserved space.
All linens included, hair dryers in the two main baths, clothes detergent and softener, iron with board, dishwasher detergent, vacuums. You only need shampoo and shower soap.
We stay a month every spring and fall, so it's impeccably-maintained and our terrific housekeeper Juana keeps it VERY (think Hilton hotels) clean.
Dozens of excellent restaurants of nearly every type within 1-2 miles, with a book containing recommendations for the best. Giant Food supermarket less than a mile, Harris Teeter 1 1/2 miles, Whole Foods 2 miles, Trader Joes 3 miles. Major shopping at the Pentagon City Mall just 2.5 mi. Detailed maps in the “clients' basket” in the living room. Cable TV, broadband and WI-FI. Large-screen HDTV in the basement den. Small library selection and CD music selection.
If you like to bike, we're about 1/2 mile from the Four Mile Run Trail, which is a 7-mile, paved bike trail in Arlington County, Virginia that runs along Four Mile Run from Falls Church to the Mount Vernon Trail near Ronald Reagan Washington National that goes along the Potomac for 17 miles.
Payment: Personal check, Homeaway Payments, Paypal, bank transfers.
If you have special needs, talk with us. Life is full of solutions.
We live in Hawaii on Oahu above Pearl Harbor (2 or 3 hours earlier than Los Angeles), so please keep the time zones in mind. Email is best and I monitor it regularly, but I'd love to chat with you, keeping in mind the time difference.
For the fun of it, because we live in Hawaii we've decorated in 'Hawaiiana', which is quite different from the button-down 'Georgetown drawing room' style that's the area norm. You'll feel a little as if you're visiting us in Hawaii! Check out our video for a better feel.
Aloha from Michael and Virginia!

About the owner: Photo at L'Auberge Chez Francois restaurant in Virginia, our favorite area restaurant, in the fall. We're both retired from the Air Force, with 62 years combined service, very happy in Hawaii. You'll see many Hawaiian decorating touches in our townhouse, which we purchased for our first assignment to the Pentagon. With a myriad of lifelong friends in the area we revel in our two months of visits there each year, with many parties and more fun than humans should endure. Courtesy of our wonderful country we've experienced much of the world, and those experiences make us certain that you'll love visiting our country's capital area, possibly the most interesting in the world. Aloha, Michael and Virginia
Why the Owner Chose Potomac West, Alexandria, VA, USA:
It's not JUST a vacation rental. It's one of our two homes. Our emotional connection to it, our incredible friends in the area, and our nation's capital make it far more than a 'vacation rental property'.
