About Betty Mallon--- firstname.lastname@example.org
My husband and I are native Alexandrians and have owned this home for many years. We purchased it so my mother could move from her 3 story townhouse to one level living. She enjoyed many years there before moving in with my sister. Recently we decided it was the perfect spot for vacationers as it is in a wonderful, quiet community; yet is within walking distance of everything. I actually grew up in the neighborhood, attended the local elementary school and now our grandson is attending the same school. We live just a short 5 minute drive from the house and can make ourselves available if there is a problem.
Betty Mallon--- email@example.com purchased this Bungalow in 1988
Why Betty Mallon--- firstname.lastname@example.org chose North Ridge
I know how many people visit the Washington DC area each year, and I wanted to provide a more home-like setting for people who don't like the bustle of hotels. Old Town Alexandria and Del Ray are right on the doorstep of this cute bungalow, and with DC just a short distance away, I thought it was the perfect pied a terre!
What makes this Bungalow unique
This is a single family detached home so you don't have go worry about your noise level of coming or going as there is no unit above, below or beside you. You have your own washer and dryer and yard to use for outdoor grilling and dining. There is plenty of room to stretch out in this little home, and the privacy it affords, allows visitors to really 'live' in the DC area. Walking to shops and restaurants, theater, boating, metro and the like are just the icing on the cake.

This is our 4th VRBO experience in Alexandria and far and away the best!
The location is terrific as you are in easy walking distance of Old Town, Delray and the Braddock road train station. The home is located on a very quiet street in a nice neighborhood.
Inside, the home is "squeaky" clean and well maintained. We didn't do much cooking but the kitchen is well stocked with all the tools to do so.
The bed was comfortable and the shower nice and hot.
We will be back.
Thanks so much for the kind words. Happy to hear you will be back!
Super clean & comfy
We loved our stay. Great location - you can walk to shops, restaurants and to take the Metro. The house was perfect. Very clean and comfortable. Parking was a breeze which was a big factor for us when selecting where we wanted to stay.
We once lived in the area and now we have the perfect place to come to when we visit.
This is our second time staying here and it is perfect for our little family. Nice neighborhood, a short walk to morning coffee or dinner in the evening. Everything was clean and fresh. Thanks for another great stay - we will be back!
Very nice & clean
Enjoyed our stay. Home was very nice & clean and easily accommodated our family of 5. I thought it was closer to Old Town so I was glad we had a car. Did feel that for the cleaning fee paid, we should not have to strip beds and take out the trash.
Our second stay was just as great as our first!
The home is well appointed, especially the kitchen. This home is well cared for, clean, bright and a delightful backyard with a BBQ and so easy to relax in. It is only an easy mile walk to the Metro and try the great restaurants within easy walking distance. The owners are very responsive to any questions or concerns and great to work with. I would absolutely stay here again.
Our Guest Cottage sits right between two very desirable parts of the historic City of Alexandria. Within a 15 to 20 minute walk, one can enjoy numerous, excellent restaurants, shops, antique stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, cleaners and two Metro stops. Movie theaters, malls, public tennis courts and community recreation center are all within a 10 minute drive.
From the Braddock Road Metro and the King Street Metro, you can be in Washington, DC, Arlington, VA or Maryland in just minutes. The Metro also takes you directly to Reagan National Airport.
The home sits on a quiet one-way residential street that has tons of free parking if you do have an automobile. There are two bedrooms and one bath. Built in 1926, the home's bath is fairly original with a deep, cast iron tub with a shower ring. Because of its depth, it can be somewhat of a challenge to anyone with mobility restrictions. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove, toaster oven, blender and microwave. There is no dishwasher however. Additionally, there is a gas grill for warm weather grilling. The washer and dryer are housed in the basement.
The house has a TV and has internet access as well. Enjoy all the historic sights of Alexandria, George Washington's Estate of Mt. Vernon, Woodlawn, Gunston Manor, Arlington Cemetery and the endless choices of free museums in Washington, DC.
