UPPER FLOOR CONDO WITH MONUMENT VIEWS, PARKING, WI-FI, PERFECT LOCATION

Alexandria Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This spacious high rise condo is my vacation home when I need to 'get away'. It sits high in the sky in the heart of Alexandria and is the perfect short-term residence for professionals, corporate executives, or vacationers.

There are sweeping views of Washington DC from the living room, kitchen, bedroom, and from the balcony off the living room.

The living room television has Xfinity (Comcast) HD cable service with hundreds of channels and many free, on-demand movies. Broadband Internet access is provided throughout the house.

I am rather fond of my home, but my opinion is shared by others in their reviews. While I appreciate the compliments, the point is that this home is more than just a place to store your suitcase while you are visiting Washington. It will be part of the experience itself.

Located in Shirlington Alexandria high up on a strategic Civil war hill, My condo offers incredible views of Washington's famous skyline and is just 5 minutes to downtown, Reagan Airport, New MD Casinos, Nationals ballpark. You can reach any other part of the City (National Cathedral, National Zoo, Dupont Circle, etc.) in 20 minutes or less. Middleburg, VA is 30 minutes away, Baltimore and Dulles are 30-45 minutes away. A car is most useful, but public transportation is available just one block away.

Shirlington is a safe, quiet, upscale neighborhood. Several of DC's best restaurants are within 3 miles, including French, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Middle Eastern, and one of the best pizzeria's in town. Finally, one of the best features of my neighborhood is that it is one of the very few places in DC where there is never a parking problem for you or your guests! Parking spaces abound in our gigantic parking lot.

To make certain that your stay is trouble-free, I reside close by ready to assist you as necessary.

In my humble opinion, this is the best accommodation value in DC. So why stay in a pricey DC hotel or sterile corporate apartment when my house offers twice as much for half the price? Deal directly with the owner, not an agent or property manager. This is one of the best accommodation values in DC!

NOTE: Maximum of three persons. Minimum stay of three days. Please check my availability calendar before making an inquiry.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dick,



Your place was perfect. Better than a hotel, especially for Madie's special needs. The location, the size and the view resulted in very pleasant and restful stay

Hi, I am a full time equity investor. I stay a majority of my time at my house around the corner. Since I don't stay here much the condo serves a better purpose as a vacationer's destination.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

The location is perfect for a traveler with a car. Nothing is farther than a 15 minute drive in good traffic.

The condo has a hotel-like feel to it with a city view, always blows people away. Everything is at your finger tips here, a civil war fort across the street, Old Town Alexandria, DC, gorgeous neighborhoods around the condo. As well as dozens of churches within a couple of miles.

Above the City with Convenience

  • 5 of 5
This property was above the city and conveniently located at a major metro bus stop so getting to and from Washington DC was easy. There was parking available, and the view of the city was really nice. The condo was clean and cozy, yet spacious with a balcony. The mirrors made the condo feel that much more open and spacious.

Great Property! Great Owner! Great Value!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from our DC vacation and I miss the views from this condo so much already. This was a great place to stay and be able to visit all of the memorials without having to deal with traffic. We parked the car at the Metro station down the street a bit (could've caught a bus if we didn't have a car) and rode into DC to sight-see. Richard was extremely easy to deal with and helpful with planning. We will be coming back to DC to finish seeing some things we didn't have time to see and will stay here again. Condo was just as described. We couldn't have had a better experience. Thanks Richard!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We were 2 adults and a child. The place was perfect! It was as stated in this listing. The view was really great! We had a wonderful time exploring Washington DC.
We drove to the Springfield Metro station(10minutes) and rode the train to the "Mall" (45 minutes) 4 of the 5 days that we visited. There is a big parking deck at the Springfield station, so we never had trouble finding a parking spot. This was the owner's suggestion. He was available to answer any questions that we had about the condo or the area. We had thought about catching the bus in back of the condo, but you have to get up early for that! So if you don't have a car, you can ride the bus to the metro.
We would definitely stay here again! Thanks!

Convenient condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Dick's condo when we were in the area for the inauguration. This was a very convenient
and affordable place to stay. We traveled into DC each day and it was very easy to do on public transportation. The bus stops right in front of the condo and we would take the bus to the Pentagon station. It was easy to do and everyone is very helpful.
Dick was very easy to work with and enjoyed visiting with him on the phone at the end of our trip- he was making sure everything went well and if there was anything he could do to improve the condo- told him it was everything was great

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5
Felt like being at home. All the necessary ameniities, beautiful view and comfortable accomodations made our stay to the greater D.C. area a treat. Having personal transportation is a plus but not entirely necessary as it is only a short bus ride to King Street metro, and Old Town Alexandria. Will asuredly be contacting owner again when our plans take us back.
