Beautiful Cozy Home in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The owner, David, was quite accommodating to our needs. The House was clean, and has all the amenities required to feel at home. The location is ideal, for all of the areas attractions are accessible via water taxi, Metro subway and walking distance. My family of 6 enjoyed their stay which made it all worthwile. I highly recommend this property.

Thank You David for your lovely home!

Clean, perfect location and a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Alexandria before and what a wonderful area! The owner David was absolutely incredible to work with, the house was perfectly clean and well stocked with all kitchen cookware and appliances. David really went the extra mile by having all local restaurants, movies, and information with a welcome packet. We truly felt at home amongst his gorgeous art. We would recommend this property to everyone and wish all of our stays were like this one. Thank you David!

Beautiful and great location

  • 5 of 5

I loved this beautiful and historic early 1900s home both inside and out. I rented this place for my cousins as we live in the area and we had a birthday celebration there too. The interior is contemporary, modern, and clean. Each bedroom is spacious and the master bath is gorgeous. The kitchen was well stocked. An impressive place to entertain and stay.

The backyard is an oasis complete with lush landscape, a pool, and Jacuzzi. This house is a hidden gem and amazing value for the price!

The location is perfect being five minutes away from Washington National Reagan airport, five miles to D.C., two blocks from the bus that goes to the metro, two blocks from the grocery store, and a block from restaurants and coffee shops. The house was featured on the Del Ray Home and Garden tour and on national television.

Dave was such a gracious, friendly, helpful, and thoughtful host. Everything was perfect-the stay, the house, the location, and the host. Highly, highly recommend!

Great, peaceful stay in Del Ray

  • 5 of 5

Dave's house is wonderful. Unfortunately it rained our whole stay so we didn't get to enjoy the pool, but his house is so pleasant it was a restful staycation for us nonetheless. Perfect location with very short walk to all of the great restaurants and coffee in Del Ray.

Charming place, great location and pool garden!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay. Have never seen such a well equipped kitchen. Would have loved to spend more time lounging around the garden and pool which is beautifully landscaped.Easy walking distance to cafes, shops and the weekend farmer's Market.

A charming place to stay when in Virginia.
