Charming Apartment in Fabulous Location
About Dawn Luepke
Tim & I (Dawn) purchased this house in April 2014. We have rented in the area since our wedding rehearsal dinner six years ago and just fell in love with the quaintness of Del Ray, the waterfront of historic Old Town, and the easy access to Washington, D.C. so we are thrilled to be homeowners here. Tim grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and loves to offer his Midwestern hospitality. After college he was a tour guide here for international students so he knows a lot of what D.C. has to offer - so feel free to ask for places to visit and how to get there. Together, we opened a kids consignment boutique in Del Ray in 2010 and love being a part of this community. We live on the first floor of this two-unit home so are available for any of your needs.

Why Dawn Luepke chose Potomac West
We loved the convenient location, front porch, and the beautiful tree-lined street in a neighborhood filled with quaint bungalow style houses with front porches. As a one-car family, Tim bikes 1 mile to work at the US Trade & Patent Office (which has a small museum that is open to the public).
What makes this Apartment unique
Its a charming 1930's home complete with a glass front door, original moldings, door knobs, & old-school radiators. We are having a wood fence installed this spring to complete the charm.

Beautifully decorated and comfortable, the best part was the friendly welcome from Dawn and husband Tim.
Great trip to Washington DC
Very comfortable place Just a short walk to the Metro and access to all the city has to offer. Very good hosts. Don’t forget to pet Lucky!
Great place in DC area for a small family
My family stayed here for five days on our trip to DC. The hosts were very friendly with good tips for getting around the area. The neighborhood near the house is very clean and safe. There was a park a couple blocks away we walked to daily. There are also several restaurants within walking distance. Lots of cute little shops in nearby Del Ray and on King Street.
Easy commute to DC if you avoid rush hour.
Great stay for a week
Great location for walking to Old Town and for DC by Uber. Dawn and Tim were great! We came as guests and left as friends.
We had a great time! The property was very clean and nicely decorated. It was in a quaint neighborhood, which was a short walk to the metro station. We would definitely stay here again in the future!
Great place to stay in Alexandria!
Super cute place in a great neighborhood. Walking distance to the Metro which was still convenient even though it was down for maintenance- free shuttle was organized. Wonderful owners/family to stay with!! Very helpful with local recommendations. Close to restaurants and Old Town. Lena’s for pizza was awesome and two blocks away. We loved our time in DC and this was truly “home” while we were there! Thanks so much for having us!
There are two restaurants & a small wine bar in walking distance - just two down the block. There is also a tennis court at end of the street if you want to bring your racket. And there is the Bike Share program with bike rentals if you'd like to get around that way. Of course the metro is only steps away too.
