About the property

Arlington, Virginia

If you’re looking for the ultimate destination for your upcoming family getaway, you can’t go wrong with this magnificent Arlington vacation rental home. Nestled in a quiet, residential neighborhood, this wonderful house offers plenty of seclusion while still being just 15 minutes from the nation’s capital!

From the moment you first arrive, you’ll immediately be in awe of this picturesque 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom house, situated in a private cul-de-sac tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life. With enough sleeping arrangements for up to 7 guests, this remarkable residence is perfect for families or a group of close friends exploring everything Virginia and Washington DC have to offer. Inside, you’ll find the Southern plantation-style home tastefully appointed with hardwood floors on the upper level and brand new carpeting on the lower floor, as well as a gorgeous wrought iron staircase, tasteful decor, and plenty of natural light throughout over 3,700 square feet of living space. From subway tile backsplash, soft close drawers and a huge island, to a 48-inch Wolf range stove with 6 burners and a griddle, a sub-zero fridge, and 4 top-of-the-line ovens, the professional gourmet kitchen comes fully equipped with everything a chef could need to prepare delicious meals. In addition, the kitchen features a 40-inch HD Sony TV with a PlayStation gaming console to keep the chef entertained. Choose to enjoy family meals around the lovely mango-wood dining table that seats 12, or step outside to dine al fresco on the lovely patio, surrounded by beautiful trees.

Your favorite place to spend your downtime will quickly become the large recreation room, where you can play ping-pong, board games, or the latest PlayStation games, watch movies on the 65-inch 4K TV, and stay active on the treadmill. There’s even more space to spread out and relax in the media room, complete with lots of comfortable seating and a 55-inch Mitsubishi HDTV with 5.1 surround sound. In addition, this property comes equipped with Verizon Fios TV, CD player, and the second floor is wired with a SONOS audio system and in-ceiling speakers to satisfy all your entertainment needs! If you're in the area on business, the office provides a quiet place to work. On warm evenings, shoot some hoops with your companions on the driveway. When the evening has come to a close, retreat to one of the inviting bedrooms for some quality rest and rejuvenation - the master bedroom will serve as your peaceful escape, boasting a plush king-sized bed and a master bathroom with dual vanity, Jacuzzi tub, and shower. 

All the other amenities you need in your ultimate home-away-from home are here, including central heat and air conditioning, complimentary wireless internet access, and in-unit laundry machines for your convenience. If you’re planning a visit during late May through mid-September, you’ll also get to enjoy access to the top-level Donaldson Run recreation facility, which features a large swimming pool, basketball and volleyball courts, and a picnic area. This amazing home truly leaves nothing to be desired!

When you’re not relishing in the home’s outstanding amenities, you wont have to venture far to reach everything the area has to offer! From here, you’ll be an easy 15 minute drive from Washington DC, where you can tour the White House, visit the Washington Monument, explore free history museums, and so much more. Clarendon, Arlington’s walkable urban village, is also nearby and offers excellent shopping, movie theatres, and local restaurants within 10 minutes of the house. For more shopping, drive 15 minutes to the Tysons Corner Mall.

You’ll love spending a day outdoors, hiking along pristine trails that begin within walking distance of the house. There’s a nature center with local flora and fauna information centers 5 minutes away, and several public parks, tennis courts, and golf courses are close by. You’ll also be conveniently located within 10 minutes of numerous grocery stores, such as Whole Foods, Safeway, Giant, and Harris Teeter.

Lovely home near D.C.

  • 5 of 5

This property is well maintained and lovely. The gourmet kitchen is fabulous and is perfect for a family gathering! All the bedrooms were perfect, towels were provided in each room. The owner is a lovely man who greeted us at the door for checking in even at a late hour. He provided many amenities such as soap and shampoo. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return trip in the future.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Arlington home worked out well for our family who were in town for our son's wedding. The kitchen is the highlight of the home. It was so well stocked with serving items, utensils, small appliances, etc., great for cooking and setting up a buffet for our family and friends for a welcome gathering and brunch after the wedding. We brought many items from home with us not knowing what to expect, but didn't use all we brought. The Viking range and two beautiful wall ovens are a cook's dream. The refrigeration/freezer space was a challenge given the extensive cooking appliances available. Having two wine coolers available were extremely helpful. The dining room and table was large to accommodate our family as well as the couch and chair in there as well. It was great being able to access the porch on the front of the house from the office on the other side of the dining room wall. The rocking chairs and little tables out there were a very nice touch and provided extra seating for our guests as well as a quiet place to relax. The family rooms with large TVs and ping pong table were a great addition to the entertainment for our young guests, as well as the board games available. We did bring some lawn games to use as well but used them on the front lawn not in the back yard. The 4 bedrooms were very convenient. Master bedroom bed extremely high for me so I could have used a step stool to get up on the bed. I am 5'4". It was a challenge each night. Several of the closets had many personal items in them so we were hesitant to use them. It would be helpful if personal items could be pushed to one side as they were in the Master bedroom walk in closet. The downstairs bedroom closet couldn't be used at all for my son to hang his tuxedo and suits up because it was filled wall to ceiling. It would be helpful if some space was left available in there to use. The downstairs shower was wonderful. Great water pressure and easy to access. I used this since the shower/tub in the master bath was too difficult to get out of because it was so deep (Jacuzzi tub) and I am only 5'4". My husband at 6'1" used Master bath but warned me of the challenge of getting out. I know it sounds old but some type of grab bar might be installed as a precaution for renters. Especially since you have to climb up a step to get on the ledge of the tub and then go down into the tub. Overall the house worked out well for our family wedding weekend.The owner was very helpful, friendly & accessible.

John's Graduation

  • 5 of 5

The house worked out beautifully for our Georgetown graduation. It was large enough to accommodate all the relatives travelling from afar. The kitchen was amazing. We felt right at home with several cooks. Our celebration gathering was great too with the location of the large dining area off the kitchen. The weather was pretty enough that we enjoyed the back yard patio. I could not have asked for more.

As to the other review comment on the mattress in the master. They were correct it was extra firm, but with my back I woke every day feeling just fine.

I would rent it again without a second thought.
