Old Town Townhome Rental Photos and Description

New listing number- Just moved one block closer to King Street to allow more date flexibilities for our guests. Located on the same street as previous town home, Brand New Kitchen, large backyard for entertaining, and brand new hardwood floors.

Absolutely charming home is full of character with modern amenities. The home is complete with two bedrooms, dining room, kitchen, living room and a backyard fit for relaxing. Master has a king bed and guest room has a queen. Living room sofa has a pull out Queen bed. Home has new dark hardwood floors and there is a lovely, modern, fully-equipped kitchen with all dishes and everything you need for home-cooked meals and a gas grill out back. Plenty of entertaining dishes for your Christmas feast, I used to be an event planner! Linens & towels provided. High-speed wireless internet & xFinity cable HBO/HD!

Old Town, Alexandria, a seaport on the Potomac established in 1749 where the spirits of our founding fathers linger. Restaurants, antique stores, quaint old houses abound. The house is only a mile walk to the metro or it is a five blocks to the free trolley which takes you to the metro. Hop on and ride to the monuments & museums of Washington, DC or get a ferry boat in town to take you on a tour of the monuments from a different angle.

Down the street hop on Mt Vernon trails and take a stroll or ride your bike along the water. Two stores within two blocks, restaurants within 3 blocks of the house.. could not pick a better location.

We live her the majority of the year, but travel a lot throughout the year and on weekends. If there is a time during the week (all marked off) that you would like to stay please contact me to see if we can accommodate. We enjoy living here so much we wanted to give other people a chance to enjoy. Maps & recommendations are in a book when you enter for your enjoyment.

About Ru Toyama

After so many inquiries about renting our home, we decided to move one and a half blocks closer to King street. We will now have the option to open our home year round because we have a fully finished basement, that has a separate entrance where we can stay when our guest are upstairs.

We got stationed over on the East Coast at the end of June. We attended USNA together, but only met about 2 years ago. We quickly got married and this is our second home purchased as a married couple. We own 3 other rental units in Florida.

Ru Toyama purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Ru Toyama chose Alexandria

This property has amazing charm and now a brand new kitchen. It is in a fantastic location. There is not one night where there is not something going on in Old Town. We love it!

What makes this townhome unique

Brand New Kitchen, large backyard, and Old Town itself made us fall in love with the property.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time in Old Town and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The home is absolutely beautiful, well appointed, extremely comfortable, and centrally located. We will definitely try to stay here again!

Old Town Wonder - Modern Convenience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 great nights in this beautiful house while we visited the DC area. The house is well appointed with everything you could possibly need, a great location for exploring the area and spotlessly clean. I know I could stop the review there and many people would be perfectly happy with those facts, but let's get down to the details.

As in any trip when you're choosing a home base, it's all about location, location, location. We chose to stay outside of the immediate DC area to be able to explore more of the metropolitan area. We were able to park our car, using the supplied district parking pass, and rely solely on efficient public transportation. The house is located on a quiet street that is a short walk up to King Street, the main artery for shopping, eating and transportation. On King Street you catch a free trolley to the Metro stop that will take you just about anywhere you could possibly want to go in DC. I felt like a local as we made our daily trek to the sights & delights of the Washington area. There are many shops & restaurants within a 5-10 min walk from the house and we enjoyed many! The Masonic Temple, located near the Metro, was a hidden gem of a touring stop, highly recommend the visit to the top and the tour.

The house is a beautifully renovated home with all the conveniences you miss when you stay in a boxy hotel room. While being renovated for convenience, there is still plenty of old town character from the slightly creaky, but charming, floorboards to the beautiful moldings. The kitchen is beautiful and stocked with anything you need. The Keurig coffee machine is a very nice touch with a great selection of coffees. Two well appointed bedrooms and baths gave us plenty of space and privacy. The beds and linens are comfortable and cozy. My one recommendation would be to add a bedside lamp in the 2nd bedroom for reading, the overhead light and fan is great but hard to read by! The home was absolutely spotless, clearly well kept and loved.

We did have a minor issue with our parking passes being printed correctly. I only bring this up to be able to say the owners were incredibly responsive and took care of the issue immediately & cheerfully. We whole heartedly would recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit the DC area, it was a perfect stay!

Modern and beautifully decorated!!

  • 5 of 5

My Mother and I went for a special trip to Alexandria for Mothers Day. Actually a long weekend. We chose the Perfect house. Actually I should say Home. Completely updated to the point when I told my mom, "the owners must be interior designers, or they hired one". If you want to stay in Alexandria this is it! The owners were so friendly and generous. I can't say enough, this is it. My Mother and I will forever remember our trip and this beautiful home! The beds and bathrooms r amazing!!!!

This is a lovely, well appointed home. The location is great too... very near good restaurants and the bike path to Mount Vernon. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again when in Old Towne. Ru was very responsive and helpful when I emailed him my many questions!

Alexandria Old Town Charm

  • 5 of 5

when using VRBO you are hoping that the place you stay is as advertised, is located as advertised and have hosts/owners who you can communicate easily with. This place is all three! Could not be more pleased. These owners have put a real effort in making your stay as comfortable as any 5 Star hotel could provide. My family had a great time. (Lots of DC back and forth) .

Waterfront is close. Restaurants are close. Metro (free shuttle to) is close. Heck there is a Starbucks, CVS and a Safeway within yelling distance!

Highly recommended!

Immaculate and comfortable home in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Updated, gorgeous townhome in historic district of Old Town Alexandria. Perfect location allowed us to enjoy walking to many local shops, historic sights and eateries, free king street trolley was a plus and easy access to metro. This home was charming and comfortable, it had a lot of character. It was well appointed and the décor was stunning. The hosts were VERY responsive and accommodating. Definitely will return! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!
