About this listing

The space

This is a guest bedroom with a comfy full-size bed with memory foam topper. Located in a quaint garden community apartment complex in Old Town Alexandria.

You have a fully outfitted kitchen at your disposal. Enjoy the full size fridge, electric stove, dishwasher, and tea maker. The kitchen has all the utensils and these things called "pans" to make meals with. There are 2 grocery stores just a few blocks down the road, along with rental bikes.

High speed wii-fii available. There is a round dining table with room for two and it doubles as an office desk if you need to do work.

The living room area complete with a flatscreen TV with too many channels and bookshelves with not enough books. During your stay take advantage of the in-unit washer and dryer, and off-street parking space.

The bottom line is make yourself at home; watch TV, use the kitchen, come and go as you please. The only thing I ask is that you respect my space as I will respect yours while you visit.

3 blocks to the pedestrian walkway by the scenic Potomac river. 8 blocks to the metro, one metro stop from Ronald Reagan National Airport. Walk to shops and restaurants in charming Old Town Alexandria or hop on the metro to visit the monuments and museums of downtown Washington DC.

The main drag of King St. is 9 blocks away. It's the "heart" of Old Town and runs from the metro to the waterfront. You'll find all sorts of shops and dining establishments along King Street. Take a stroll along the waterfront or hop on the free trolley to get to the metro.

Enjoy an early morning jog or a bike ride along the miles of wooded trails that run along next to the Potomac river. The 17 mile paved hiker/biker/runner path of the famous Mount Vernon Trail is just 15-minute walk away or a 3-minute drive.

P.S. One cat rules the roost.

Kathie made my stay in Alexandria a true pleasure. I was there for a conference, so I wasn't there for vacation. Her hospitality made it a joy. Thanks.

Awesome area, awesome flat, awsome room, awesome cat and awsome Kathie. Everything was just perfect! Alexandria is really worth visiting. Very cute and it is easy to get to the City Center of D.C. A supermarket is just around the corner and the main street full of shops and restaurants is very close.

My stay was just awesome and I'm so happy I chose Kathies's home for my trip to DC. The house is located in the beautiful area near Old Town Alexandria. It's safe and the neighborhood is amazing. It will take you round about 15 to 20 minutes by metro to get to DC. To reach the metro station it's a nice walk of 1 mile (1,5 km) or you can just take the Dash Bus around the corner. There is a great supermarket (Harris Teeter) just some steps away and an incredible donut store (Sugar Shack) on the way to the metro station - I highly recommend it! The flat is beautiful and I felt very comfortable. The bed was wonderful. The cat is cute, everything super clean and quiet. I could cook anytime or hang out and talk with Kathie. She is a sweetheart and a perfect host. For sure one of the best hosts I've ever had on airbnb. She is caring and sociable and always polite. I would definitely stay here again and I can only highly recommend her home. Thanks for everything!
