Why Kathy chose Shirlington

This condo gives me the time to spend in DC, when I need to go to an event and or visit my mother in Alexandria.

It was a good!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, inviting, and within striking distance of fine restaurants and various shopping centers. It was also well situated to get on the "freeways" to Alexandria where we spent the bulk of our time with our family. As a first time experience, it was a good one. A couple of suggestions:

a) soap, shampoo in the bathroom; b) a couple of coffee packs and creamer for the first morning in the condo; c) hand rail and rubber mat for the bathtub (older guests like ourselves need the stability getting in and out of the tub). Finally, I felt badly to disturb the owner, but the air conditioner was not working and never did work adequately in the building. We Montanans were not used to the heat.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I was coming to the area from upstate NY in order to help family, planning to stay for 5-6 weeks, and needed accommodations that would offer some of the comforts of home while being affordable and convenient. Well, Kathy’s place fit the bill, and then some. This large and comfortable studio apartment provided a quiet, charming haven for me while I was away from home. The building, itself, is situated across from Fort Ward Park, so the view is lovely, and it is a 10-minute walk to shopping – the wonderful Fresh Market, a great bakery, hair salon, wine shop, convenience store, and restaurants. The apartment has a spacious main room, large enough for the queen-sized bed with night stands, a writing desk, full-sized dresser, and two arm chairs. All of this still allowed for plenty of room to walk around – no bumping into furniture or one another! Sliding glass doors facing the Park open to a wonderful balcony furnished with a small table and two chairs – perfect for watching the sun set over the tree line of the park. My husband and I ate dinner, there, and enjoyed sipping a glass of wine at the end of the day, after caring for loved ones. The kitchen, while small, provides every amenity, including a full-sized refrigerator, range, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher, pots and pans, cutlery and cooking utensils, and dishes. The bathroom was the best surprise – one enters a large bathroom with a very long double vanity, with plenty of storage, a large closet with French doors and two dressing mirrors. Through another door are the toilet and bathtub (hurrah!) with shower. The apartment entrance has a coat closet.

Best highlights of the apartment and its location: the bathtub (not just a shower stall), fully functioning kitchen, marvelous balcony, sitting area, abundant storage (essential for long-term stays), incredibly quiet, easy access to parking, and proximity to shopping.

And let’s not forget Kathy! From our unanticipated late arrival, due to traffic and road conditions, to extending my stay, several times, without any inconvenience to me, Kathy was a perfect host. Responsive and helpful in every way, Kathy also generously accommodated some special needs we had.

Kathy’s place is terrific for short term stays, of course, but it is absolutely perfect for longer-term reservations. We will be returning, once again to help out family, over the next couple of months, and we plan on reserving this wonderful apartment, again.Thank you, Kathy!

I LOVE it here!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is just perfect for my needs. Kathy is always attentive and gracious. You will be met with a room out of better homes and gardens. From the bed, the bedding and the decor, you will feel like you're in the fanciest of hotels. The bathroom has 2 sinks, solid surface countertop, and separate bath from the dressing area. This unit is close to the National Mall, Arlington, and all the "tourist" things many people like to do. It's quiet too. The Balcony overlooks the "park", and pool, and you can sit there and watch the planes landing far into the distance at Reagan Airport. If you're looking for splendor, peace, and a place that's close enough yet far enough away.. this is it. You won't be disappointed.

Wonderful apartment near Old Town Alexandria in safe neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Our experience was really great! Kathy was very accommodating; met us at 1am when our flight came in. We had a small issue with the coffee pot and she resolved it very quickly. The apartment is cozy, and the area is very safe. There is a park across the street you can walk around, with a museum too. About 10 minute walk there is a shopping center with lots of shops and restaurants. 15 minute drive to Reagan National Airport. Depending on traffic, a 15-30 minute drive to the National Mall (where the monuments are). Not close to a Metro station, but there is a Metrobus stop directly across the street, which will get you to the Metro quickly. Our only advice is, you may want to bring your own pillow. Ones in the room are a little hard for sleeping. We will definitely recommend this apartment to our family and friends, and will likely stay again if we come back to DC!

Lovely nice hotel-like feeling

  • 4 of 5

Super duper great host. Very organized and great at communicating. Very comfortable bed and great large bathroom area. The view from the balcony is fantastic with enormous lush green trees which makes for a enjoyable walk through. There is a gym with is big and has very new equipment. The swimming pool looked very inviting however it is only for residents, not guests (as I understand it). The location very close to the freeway which is handy and grocery store etc are near by. The complex is a large apartment (about 15 stories) building where dogs are allowed to live. And many of the residents are dogs.
