About Jaki and Don McCarthy
We live in the nearby suburbs and bought this house as a home renovation project. This house has been a labor of love for us as we slowly renovated. The house was smaller and used as a boarding house when we bought it, but we have done a complete top to bottom renovation -- including adding the entire basement level!! The outside is historic, but everything inside is modernized to todays standards.
Jaki and Don McCarthy purchased this House in 2001
Why Jaki and Don McCarthy chose Old Town West
We come down and stay here as often as we can. We have lots of ties to Old Town-- we met in one of Old Towns favorite watering holes -- Murphys Irish Pub, had our first date at the Hard Times Cafe, and spend alot of time out and about in Old Town. Eventually we plan to retire here, but until then, we would like to share it with you!
What makes this House unique
This house is quite big for Old Town, so you will have more room than most. You may feel like staying in -- cook meals in the large kitchen or out back on the grill, spend some time hanging out in the house, or on the patio. But the location is quite central just two blocks from Old Towns main drag, King Street. If you are going into DC, the metro is only 5 blocks away.

The property was as advertised. Lots of space for 5 adults. Kitchen was very functional as were the other appliances. Only somewhat negative comment involves the second floor shower in that the water pressure was low and it was difficult to regulate the water temperature. Outside of that we enjoyed the neighborhood and found it easy to get around on foot and by car-once we got used to the one way streets! Thank you for all the pamphlets on Alexandria which were a great help in planning our time. We would certainly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in old town.
Loved this property. We stayed with our three adult daughters and one son-in-law. There was plenty of room for everyone. One daughter stayed in the attic/media room and it was a very comfortable fourth bedroom. The home is very well equipped and we even took advantage of the great DVD selection for a bit of down time. The location is fantastic. We were able to walk to our favorite spots in Old Town. Thanks for sharing your property with us!
Great place & location
No issues whatsoever. We enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful home in an ideal location
Gorgeous, comfortable home within easy walking distance of King Street and everything Alexandria and DC have to offer. The house was immaculate and well-stocked and the hosts were wonderful and accomodating - even calling before our arrival to see if we had any questions. The Ethiopian restaurant next door is also amazing. My kids wanted to go back every night. I would recommend this VRBO to anyone coming to the area and hope to return myself sometime soon.
Very Nice Stay
The communication between me and the owners was excellent. Our stay at the house was great, the house was exceptionally clean and stocked with all your basic needs. The house was roomier than we actually thought from the pictures. Everything was close by on King St., parking was a plus and easy access to everything. We would like to book again in the future.
Old Town Alexandria is one of the oldest towns in the country, yet vibrant with small boutique shops and restaurants. Stroll through the historic neighborhood to the Potomac River and see the places where George Washington, Robert E. Lee, and many others made history. You are also just a short drive to downtown Washington DC and all our Nation's Capital has to offer.
