About Linda Moncure

Willie and I were born and raised here in Alexandria and have enjoyed living in a town with so much to do from museums to sports events and amusement parks to restaurants. A big town adventure in a small town atmosphere!

Linda Moncure purchased this studio in 2007

What makes this studio unique

Alexandria is such a historic town with so much to do. It is busy and yet quiet, often bustling but with so many places to relax. It is alive with the history of our nation around every turn, but with so many new and interesting facets that it keeps everyone happy.

Lovely vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I truly enjoyed our stay. The studio apartment is about the size of a hotel room, and quite comfortable. The kitchen area was well-equipped with a fridge, microwave, toaster-oven, and a supply of dishes and cutlery. Linda even provided delicious muffins for our first breakfast - so thoughtful! Linda also compiled several binders full of local sightseeing information, including maps, coupons, and two re-fillable Metro cards. She also allowed us to use her washer/dryer mid-week, so we didn't have to pack so much. It's personal touches such as these that make us appreciate staying in a vacation rental over an impersonal chain hotel.

The home is located in a scenic historic neighborhood, and we enjoyed looking at the variety of beautiful homes during our walk to the Metro. We'd walk down to the train station, and take the Metro up to DC for the day. In the evening we'd return to Alexandria where we'd hop on the free trolley and ride down King street until we saw a restaurant to try. The proximity to public transportation was a great plus - we decided to take the Amtrak train up from Florida because the Amtrak stop is the same as the Metro, and then flew home out of Reagan National which was just a couple Metro stops away.

The only cautionary note I'll mention for future guests is the walk from the Metro to the apartment. It is uphill for most of the walk, which may be a bit of a challenge for some older folks. However, public transportation is readily available, and a taxi from the Metro station to the apartment only costs around $7 (including tip) if your feet hurt after a day of sightseeing!

Thank you again, Linda & Willie, for sharing your hospitality and your studio apartment.

Lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5
It was so nice for my husband and I to return to this lovely room after a day of visiting family or sightseeing in Washington DC. The setting in a beautiful older neighborhood with lovely older homes really added to the feeing of home away from home vs a sterile motel room. Old town Alexandria and the Del Ray neighborhood, where we spent a lot of time, were easy walks away as well as the Metro for a quick trip to DC. The room was as pictured tho much nicer in reality. Tastefully decorated and very clean. Linda, the owner, was helpful and available if we needed her and privacy was easily maintained given the location of the room. There is a park and school nearby for small children. We were primarily there to visit family who were about a mile away so we simply walked there, enjoying the lovely homes and feeling completely safe as we walked back in the evening. Great food at the Del Ray Cafe and Monroe's restaurants. Definitely recommend this accommodation to friends and family.

Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5
I was in town for a conference in DC and stayed 3 nights at this lovely studio. Owner Linda was most gracious and the place was spotless. The walk to the Metro station and to Old Town is just far enough to get your blood flowing and to work off a good meal at any of the great restaurants in town. I would highly recommend to business and leisure travelers alike!

Cozy Studio

  • 5 of 5
Our comfy cottage, only 1/2 mi from King St Metro/Amtrak and historic Alexandria, was perfect for mother-daughter bonding jaunt. We felt very safe walking home from station in evening. The studio was clean , quiet and spacious for 2. Would love to return when it's warmer to sit outside on the flagstone patio to enjoy the greenery.
