Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
Spent Thanksgiving week visiting our son and family and hosted Thanksgiving Dinner at the house. Could not have asked for a better equipped kitchen or a more comfortable home. Very dog friendly and a great neighborhood for walking and for local small businesses . Dave was a wonderful host and I can't thank him enough for the bottle of wine the night we arrived after a 9 hour trip and beltway traffic. We hope to return again and will hope that we can stay here and enjoy the home and wonderful photographs

Fantastic location, home, and owner

  • 5 of 5
Dave was phenomenal to work with. The home has an amazing number of amenities and was in the perfect location away from all of the notorious DC traffic but close enough to everything. We had four of us in town for business and David was more than accomodating. It's a fantastic property for travelers of any age or variety.

This is a beautiful home located in a very convenient neighborhood. It truly is pet friendly with a doggie door and fully fenced yard. My wife and I would easily give the home 5 stars for excellent except for two things. We were surprised to find that the queen beds were uncomfortably firm, so much so that we had a difficult time sleeping through the night. We switched beds hoping that one of the others was more comfortable but found they were not. The home has three bedrooms upstairs with only one full bath. While there were two other half-baths, one on the first floor and the other in the basement, it would have been more comfortable having an additional full bath. If you are accustomed to sleeping on quite firm beds, this is definitely the place for you. It excelled in all other respects.

Owner's Response: Just to set the record straight, there is a shower in the basement bathroom. You have to actually go in the bathroom to see it. Sorry, you didn't figure that out. As for the beds I guess its just one of those things. I, and guest for the last two years find them very comfortable.

Great Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
I was in town for a conference with a friend and we travel with our dogs. Alexandria is a very dog friendly city. House is in a great location, walking distance to restraunts, shops and the metro if you want to explore Washingon, DC. The amenities provided are on scale with a 5 star hotel. Fron the hammock on the front porch, to the pool and spa in the back yard, we enjoyed it so much we plan on coming back again to explore the area in depth. David was avilable at a moments notice if we had any questions. Thanks for having us!

Great wedding weekend home base!

  • 5 of 5
This property was even better than we could have imagined. Really a gem! It worked flawlessly as home base for both a pre-wedding bachelor celebration and during the wedding weekend itself when out of town couples reconnected. The pool was an exceptional gathering spot and the kitchen was phenomenal.

Very quick from National airport (<10 minutes) and easy in/out to D.C. and downtown Alexandria. Easy walk to some great restaurants around the corner and a basic grocery store for the simple necessities only a few blocks away. Parking was not a problem for several cars. We didn't use the metro, although it seems like it would have been quite straightforward and efficient to do so (but we were always 5+ travelling, so carpool or uber made the most sense).

There was a problem with the A/C upon our arrival, but Dave was very upfront about this and was already working quickly to remedy the problem, which he did in less than 24 hours. Payment was easy to arrange and he was prompt on returning the security deposit. Do note that Dave has a small pool house of sorts just at the end of driveway that he stays in while the house is rented so he is quite nearby. Even for a group of semi-rambunctious fellas he was very low key and let us enjoy the space without any issues.

Highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the area!

Wonderful home near Old Town Alexandria

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four was travelling in the mid-Atlantic region this summer and wanted to spend some time seeing the sights in Washington, D.C. Over the past year we have stayed in 6 or 7 homes through VRBO and when we travel it is our preferred accommodation. Dave's house was perfect for us because of the amount of space available and the fact that there is a pool. The home is very clean and extremely well stocked; if you enjoy cooking; you are in for a treat! The beds were comfortable; we wanted for nothing while staying here. The pictures of the property are accurate; in fact, it's even better in person. We really enjoyed his photographs which are displayed throughout the home. The reservation process was easy and straightforward; Dave refunded our deposit the same day we left.
A couple of words about location: a car is recommended and there is plenty of parking in the driveway. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance but we found it necessary to drive to a grocery store (there is a Trader Joe's not far as well as another grocery store and liquor store). We ended up driving to the King St. metro station and parking in a garage so that we could head into D.C. to see the sights. It cost $19 to park in the garage and about $40 for the four of us to take the metro to the National Zoo. There might have been a less expensive way to do this (i.e. walk 1+ miles to Braddock St. station) but it was hot and I couldn't convince the kids to hoof it.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Dave's house and I highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good stay. Just for future reference there is a bus that picks up a block from the house and drops off at the metro.
