I almost hate to tell anyone how perfect this studio is and what a joy Sara is to work with!! I'm afraid that once everyone knows she'll book up before we can visit again!!
Seriously - my husband and I stayed here for an overnight and will DEFINITELY be back.
The location is great. The apartment is compact but has EVERYTHING you might need or want. Very upscale and stylish. The bed is incredibly comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and the sitting area is very comfy.
As for Sara................she actually left work to meet us at the art gallery in order to give us the keys and tips on where to get dinner, etc. She is a gem.
This was our first stay at an AirBnB property and we are sold!!!!
Sara's place was wonderful -- very charming as you can see by the pictures, very clean and well-kept, with everything you might need for several days away from home. One of my favorite airbnb experiences so far! Sara was helpful and flexible in arranging checkin and left many touches around the apartment to make her guests feel at home. She also has a written apartment guide with the little details, which is so helpful. The location is terrific as well! Thanks Sara!
Lovely apartment and easy to work with host. Warm and sunny, even during the winter. Nice touches like basic toiletries, printer, tea, and guide to the neighborhood. It's a bit of a hike to the metro but an easy walk to King street, nearby restaurants, and grocery stores.
What a GREAT little place right down the street from Old Town's main strip. I came into town late on a cold night looking for a good AirBnB place last minute and Sara came to my rescue wonderfully. Definitely recommend the spot, super friendly host :)
My bf and I stayed one night at Sara's adorable and yes, very cozy studio on our road trip down to Georgia. The apartment to close to everything. We enjoyed coffee at Misha's and had an amazing dinner at Columbia Firehouse (the mussels are a must try if you enjoy seafood)! We were fortunate enough to meet Sara. She was very kind and helpful! Thank you for the scrumptious cookies....I want the recipe :) We'd
stay here again in a heartbeat!
Sara was a fantastic host! Not only was she friendly and flexible (she let us check in an hour early and a couple hours later to better fit our schedule), she also was clearly very organized. Her apartment is small but it's adorably decorated and well laid out. I'd definitely recommend this place to a friend!
Attending a conference in Alexandria we stayed with Sara a Wednesday and Thursday night. The apartment is great - in particular we found it wonderful to to be able to have a kitchen, a great bed, a TV sitting area (with a very cozy couch) as well as a desk/work area. The apartment is close to Old Town Alexandria with easy access to all the restaurants.
We would definitely stay with Sara again should we come back to Alexandria.
This was a very cosy and wonderful apartment in a convenient location with free street parking nearby. When our schedules did not allow Sara to meet us, she found a way to leave a key to allow us to let ourselves in. She had left directions and information on everything we needed to know about the apartment and the area. We would happily stay at this apartment again.
My boyfriend and I had such a lovely stay at Sarah's studio! We stayed for one night. The studio is located in a perfect location, walking distance from the Old Town! So charming and wonderful, has everything you would ever need. A+++
We had a great stay in Sara's cute little apartment! It has everything you need, and is super cozy and convenient. I would definitely stay here again.
