This spacious high rise condo is my vacation home when I need to 'get away'. The buiding was constructed in the 1960s and is of rock solid construction. 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.

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.
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
This well-appointed unit and location worked out perfectly for our stay in the DC area.
During the two plus weeks my husband and I stayed in Richard's condo, we never tired of the amazing views. The location is convenient, and the apartment is spacious and attractive. We appreciated its cleanliness and comfort. We enjoyed pretending we were locals and look forward to future stays. Richard is a thoughtful and gracious host.
This 14th floor one-bedroom, well-furnished, condomium offers great views and an ideal location with easy access to the monuments and government offices in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia. Close by is the nearby George Washington Parkway and shopping at the malls in Arlington and Pentagon City, and the charm of "Old-Town" Alexandria. Compared to other lodgings - local motels and hotels, the competitive price (including wi-fi and free parking) makes this a bargain for out-of-town visitors seeking a comfortable stay in one of the nation's most attractive metropolitan areas.
Richard's condo worked out perfectly for us. It was spacious and comfortable and met all our needs. It was exactly as pictured. Like a home away from home while we were in Alexandria visiting our son,daughter in law and brand new grandson. We could jump in the car and get to them in ten minutes as well as the museums and monuments in DC. The view from the balcony was spectacular, especially at night!! We are definitely planning to come back. I am reluctant to give it a 5 star rating, because we really want to keep it to ourselves!! Thanks Richard!!!
We stayed a week at condo- and we had a car. Parking was plentiful. View at night was spectacular! We travelled to Franconia-Springfield metro - plenty of parking and you were going against I395 traffic which is a major plus! You can catch the blue line there, yellow line during rush hrs and transfer to any other line. Condo was clean but dated.
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.
