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!

Beautiful Oasis in Alexaandria

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about David and the beautiful oasis he has created in Alexandria. We came to the area to tour DC and we saw and did a lot. It was wonderful to return to the house and the amazing backyard. We leave the hubbub of the city and entered quiet tranquility. The house has everything you would need. The home is decorated with all sorts of thoughtful touches. David’s photographs adorn the walls and they are beautiful. The house had terrific linens for the rooms and all the dishes and utensils you need to make a meal - small or large. As an aside, we were pleasantly surprised (after 5 days in NYC) that we all slept soundly, too. We woke up to ththe sounds of birds not garbage men! If you like to read, there are books galore. The “library” has something for everyone. The backyard is gorgeous. The pool area is surrounded by lush green plants and flowers. We spent many happy hours in the pool. David was the consummate host - giving us directions and information whenever we asked. This is what the northerner in me makes me think of a southern home - warm, inviting, calm and equipped with a swing on the big front porch where you can grab a nap or have a nice chat. The proximity and ease into DC is a great “selling” point. We zipped in and out of “the city” many many times. You will not regret staying in this home!

Wonderful home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Dave is great, friendly and professional and his house is awesome. It was clean and well stocked with anything you can think of or forgot to bring with you. We stayed 5 nights and could've easily stayed several more. The pool and hot tub are amazing. We thought the location was perfect. Easy access to DC but just far enough away to enjoy some quiet in the evenings. We enjoyed some quality bonding time with our family and would absolutely stay again if we are in the area. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the artwork. It really brings out how unique and special the home is. Thanks Dave!

Great property in this lovely part of Washington - great pool and house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our kids in from London and a few friends from US. The house was just perfect and David a very helpful owner who mad me us fell totally at home.

A great outside area with pool and BBQ which made entertaining outside perfect and a dip when it got a little too hot.

The house itself was spot on with plenty of space, great kitchen, large bedrooms with comfortable beds.

And full air con for when it hit 30 degrees (c) plus!!!

Will definitely stay again

Perfect family house outside of D.C

  • 5 of 5

Dave's house in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Va was perfect for us. The house was beautiful, and decorated with Dave's photographs. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. My daughter and husband made good use of Dave's large music collection.

We took the metro into D.C. (the metro stop is about a 10-15 minute walk from the house) several times with no problems.

The neighborhood was really cute, and had many shops and restaurants very close to the house.

We also visited Old Towne Alexandria (10 minute drive), and loved it.

Great Property + Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great visit to the DC area. (5 adults went up for a DC long-weekend stay.) This Del Ray property is fantastic: wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. Location is very close to the Del Ray village of Alexandria: easy peasy access to several restaurants, shops and (the all important) coffee shops. This property had everything we needed, including the few bits we forgot to bring along (sugar and toothpaste!)....the owner had really readied it all very well. Would definitely return on a future visit.
