Perfect location, absolutely met our needs

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location, less than three miles from the metro parking garage. We were able to get everywhere we needed by metro.

The house was large enough to meet our needs, with six adults staying in the home. The kitchen was updated and we were fine with all of the utensils and tools at our disposal.

The upstairs bathrooms have been updated somewhat, but they still have that 1950's look. The downstairs bathroom is very small. However, they were functional, so we were fine with them.

We enjoyed the porch and patio outdoors as well.

The only negative was that the house smelled very musty. The upstairs got a bit better as the week went on (or perhaps we just got used to it) but the smell was very strong downstairs. The musty odor is the only reason I am giving the house four stars instead of 5.

Roomy and Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a small family reunion. This house was perfect. The kitchen is chocked full with everything you need to cook a full meal. The bedrooms are very spacious offering plenty of privacy. It's very difficult to find any place in Alexandria that provides 3 plus bedrooms. We are so lucky to have found this wonderful home! Hopefully we will be back next year.

Beautiful Home and perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Being close to the attractions we wanted to see made this location perfect. Nice neighborhood. Easy access to the major freeways. Enjoyed being able to cook breakfast each morning before we headed out on our adventures.

Great home base for a week of D.C. sight seeing.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week here. The house was perfect for a week of sight seeing. The three bedrooms were just right for our family of two parents and two teenagers. We ate breakfast in the kitchen before heading out for the day. We found the proximity to D.C. and even took a day trip to Annapolis. The quiet suburban neighborhood was perfect.

Safe, family-friendly home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed 7 nights and had a great experience. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and had salt, pepper, oil, dish soap, dish machine soap, etc. which was convenient. We cooked several meals without any problems. It was a short drive to the metro. We had a problem running out of hot water at first, but it became less of an issue with some planning and directions to the kids to not turn the hot water all the way up before adding cold water. Our teenage daughter chose to claim the downstairs basement as her en suite bedroom and was visited by a few cave crickets though none were seen on the main level. We would happily stay here again. It was an excellent place to crash and spread out at the end of a day of sight-seeing in DC.
