|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Relax in our comfortable, bright, cheerful, functional home after a full day of shopping, sightseeing or working in Northern VA in the Washington DC area. Get away within 15 minutes to our quiet, green neighborhood. You will be in our walk-out basement which consists of 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a large living room, a kitchenette with a full fridge and laundry, and a screened porch. Choose from dozens of books and read in our back yard. Plug in your laptop into our wireless network and surf the net at super-fast speed. Flip through hundreds of channels on Satellite TV. For cooking, help yourself to our spices and get what you need from 2 major supermarkets that are 5 minutes away. To discover the area, drive to Metro (5 min) or to DC (15 min). Shop at Tysons Corner (15 min), or walk the trails in the Great Falls National Park (15 min)
Our family spent two weeks in this beautiful and comfortable home. Because it was lovingly and tenderly furnished with the things that enhance life, one felt less of being away from home and more of being "at home." The aesthetic enhancements, the artful deck in front of a great pine tree in the yard, the excellent towels and bedclothes, made us feel trusted and taken care of...the message was "enjoy our home, make it your own, have friends over to appreciate it, LIVE in it."
Overall we enjoyed the property and it is almost as described. There are a couple of minor issues that Najla may want to improve or future renters may want to consider.
Pros: a very quiet neighborhood, 20 minutes by car to Washington Downtown. Apartment is pretty big, bigger than we expected based on the photos. It was very clean, nicely painted and decorated, towels and linen provided. High-speed internet was available for us to use.
Minor issues: we were not allowed to use the back door to exit the basement and had to go through the house. It was ok, though when you rent a walk-out basement you expect to be separate from the owner's part of the house. Another issue we had was with the kitchen equipment and utensils. Unfortunately, there was only one big pot that could be used with the induction one-place stove, so we had to cook either everything in one pot, or one thing after another with washing the pot in between. Also we wish there was at least one more knife (the only one provided was very dull) and some more useful kitchen utensils (a can opener, etc.) - but this is very minor and can be definitely easily improved. Of course, we could go upstairs and ask Najla for more knives, but I am sure this part can be easily improved :)
Otherwise, we do recommend this property and will consider it again if/when planning another trip to Washington DC.
Property was clean and well maintained. Our host was very accommodating to anything we needed. Overall, a great place to stay.
Our family of 5 enjoyed this VRBO in McLean. Najla was great and gave us good recommendations on where to eat and where things were. We just spent a short weekend here, but would recommend it and would come back next time we're in the area.
Perfect place that is quiet and a great owner. Wonderful location to visit family in northern VA.
Two couples shared the unit and found it to be very comfortable and accommodating. Five minute drive to metro to visit all sites. Would definitely stay here again.
Our family of 5 stayed five nights in this home during a sight-seeing trip to DC. The owner was a kind and gracious host, helpful in getting us settled and giving us advice throughout the week. We felt at home right away. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the home felt like a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city and was a good hub from which to explore things in DC and surrounding areas. The home was clean and tidy and had all the basic necessities.
Aside from the usual DC attractions, we and our teen and younger boys enjoyed the Adventure Park at Sandy Springs and Great Falls Park, as well as great dinners at Lost Dog Cafe and Founding Farmers.
Our house is very close to downtown McLean, an upscale, quiet, green neighborhood just outside Washington, DC. Drive 5 minutes to West Falls Church Metro station and take a short ride to visit the Smithsonian museums, the White House, the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Pentagon, Old town Alexandria or the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Shop to your heart's content at Tysons Corner, the Galleria or Leesburg Outlet mall. Eat out and go to the movies at Clarendon, Ballston. Canoe or bike on the C&O canal and the endless miles of bike trails that take you to DC . Take hikes at Great Falls National Park, Red River bend or take a day trip in the Blue Ridge mountains.
