Great place for a family get-together

  • 5 of 5
We spent four wonderful weeks in this home. Some of that time included another adult couple (family) and there is plenty of room for that. Consequently, this place would suit families with teenaged or younger children. People who have difficulties with stairs would be best looking elsewhere as most of the accommodation is on the second floor.
The kitchen/dining area has magical views across the Potomac and is perfect for catching the sunrise.
The kitchen is well equipped - we were even able to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for four (Canadian Thanksgiving, that is).
Heating and cooling are quite efficient although I'm not sure about the bathroom in the winter which does not appear to have its own register.
Location is perfect for Old Town Alexandria and its shops and restaurants - all walking distance. There is a grocery store just two blocks away for most of the basics.
Getting to DC couldn't be easier via the King Street Trolley (free) and the Metro.
The only minor downside was the frustratingly erratic Internet connection - but that is really minor in comparison to the rest.
Suzanne and Levin were very responsive to our occasional questions and provided fresh flowers, sparkling wine and fruit upon our arrival.
Very much recommended!

Staying in this lovely home in Old Town is such a pleasure! The owners are wonderful people and the welcoming touches which they provide make one's stay even more special. The walks around Old Town, along the Potomac and a nearby park are very enjoyable. I do recommend this home!

Convenient and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
Awesome location close to everything in Old Town down by the water and also close to groceries, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, etc. Driveway parking was also a huge convenience and very rare in the area. The apartment itself has a nice layout and is quiet. We stayed for a week with two toddlers and it was well suited to our needs. We'd definitely stay again if we come back to the area and the apartment is available!

Just wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place!! So cute and convenient to Old Town. We walked everywhere and had a blast. We saw all the sights that DC has to offer. It was the best family we have ever experienced. Long summer days filled with fun, laughs and lots to do.
The apartment is dog friendly which was wonderful and the dog park is right around the corner.

Great location, mixed reviews of property

  • 3 of 5
We arrived for a 2-night stay in the area. Property is in a fantastic location--view of waterfront (and sunrise) from breakfast room in the kitchen. Old Town is incredibly charming, and close to DC sights. The house is charming, unique and nicely decorated, and neat as a pin. Upon our arrival, we were pleased to find a fresh fruit basket, orange juice, muffins and sweets waiting for us. Really appreciated since we arrived very late at night so we had something waiting for breakfast.

The kitchen -- very old and a bit run down, though freshly painted -- was disappointing. It is not very well equipped-- so if you plan to cook much it will be a challenge--even a good basic set of tools would be a big improvement. The tv was not working upon arrival, but the owner fixed it--though the built-in DVD player was broken the entire time. Not much water pressure for the shower. Pillows were incredibly hard and lumpy, queen bed had only a cotton blanket and fitted sheet--no flat sheet. And probably the worst thing was the smell of the apartment. Though it is a non-smoking rental, it smells like smokers had lived there before. That's a smell you just can't get rid of or cover up.

Though we enjoyed our time in the area, this rental felt overpriced for what it offered.
