About Betty Mallon--- bmallon@mcenearney.com

My husband and I are native Alexandrians and have owned this home for many years. We purchased it so my mother could move from her 3 story townhouse to one level living. She enjoyed many years there before moving in with my sister.

Recently we decided it was the perfect spot for vacationers as it is in a wonderful, quiet community; yet is within walking distance of everything.

I actually grew up in the neighborhood, attended the local elementary school and now our grandson is attending the same school.

We live just a short 5 minute drive from the house and can make ourselves available if there is a problem.

Betty Mallon--- bmallon@mcenearney.com purchased this bungalow in 1988

Why Betty Mallon--- bmallon@mcenearney.com chose Alexandria

I know how many people visit the Washington DC area each year, and I wanted to provide a more home-like setting for people who don't like the bustle of hotels. Old Town Alexandria and Del Ray are right on the doorstep of this cute bungalow, and with DC just a short distance away, I thought it was the perfect pied a terre!

What makes this bungalow unique

This is a single family detached home so you don't have go worry about your noise level of coming or going as there is no unit above, below or beside you. You have your own washer and dryer and yard to use for outdoor grilling and dining. There is plenty of room to stretch out in this little home, and the privacy it affords, allows visitors to really 'live' in the DC area. Walking to shops and restaurants, theater, boating, metro and the like are just the icing on the cake.

This is our 4th VRBO experience in Alexandria and far and away the best!

The location is terrific as you are in easy walking distance of Old Town, Delray and the Braddock road train station. The home is located on a very quiet street in a nice neighborhood.

Inside, the home is "squeaky" clean and well maintained. We didn't do much cooking but the kitchen is well stocked with all the tools to do so.

The bed was comfortable and the shower nice and hot.

We will be back.

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is cute and so close to Del Rey. We enjoyed our walks for dinner out at some fun restaurants and morning coffee in the back yard.

We appreciated how friendly Betty and Joe were. Both returned emails/calls promptly and were so easy to work with! We also loved the convenience to King Street and the Metro!

A quiet gem in the city

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming bungalow on a quiet street. My husband and I stayed here for four nights while visiting family members that live in Alexandria. We were very close to two Metro stations and walked to them for our sightseeing trips into DC. We walked to Del Ray daily to enjoy ice cream at the Dairy Godmother. We very rarely had to get into our car to go anywhere. The home is very clean and comfortable. The backyard is a wonderful spot to enjoy your morning coffee or to read your book in the evening. The kitchen is very well equipped and has plenty of condiments too. Beds were comfy. Yes, the tub is deep, but no problems. Jim and Betty were very easy to work with, and if we are ever back in Alexandria, we would definitely stay here again!

Our Guest Cottage sits right between two very desirable parts of the historic City of Alexandria. Within a 15 to 20 minute walk, one can enjoy numerous, excellent restaurants, shops, antique stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, cleaners and two Metro stops. Movie theaters, malls, public tennis courts and community recreation center are all within a 10 minute drive.

From the Braddock Road Metro and the King Street Metro, you can be in Washington, DC, Arlington, VA or Maryland in just minutes. The Metro also takes you directly to Reagan National Airport.

The home sits on a quiet one-way residential street that has tons of free parking if you do have an automobile. There are two bedrooms and one bath. Built in 1926, the home's bath is fairly original with a deep, cast iron tub with a shower ring. Because of its depth, it can be somewhat of a challenge to anyone with mobility restrictions. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove, toaster oven, blender and microwave. There is no dishwasher however. Additionally, there is a gas grill for warm weather grilling. The washer and dryer are housed in the basement.

The house has a TV and has internet access as well. Enjoy all the historic sights of Alexandria, George Washington's Estate of Mt. Vernon, Woodlawn, Gunston Manor, Arlington Cemetery and the endless choices of free museums in Washington, DC.
