Enjoy the best of old and new! Separate apartment in a fully renovated 1920 American Foursquare located in the eclectic Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, where "Main Street Still Exists." A top-to-bottom renovation provides guests with luxury accommodations in a sparkling clean lower level suite with separate entrance. With free street parking, perfect for business or vacation, guests can easily walk to Mount Vernon Avenue's restaurants, shops, coffee houses, bars and galleries.

The space
When remodeling our home in 2018, we built a brand new guest suite in an addition for family and friends to enjoy. We are a 100% smoke-free environment. Guests walk down one flight of lighted stairs to a separate side entrance behind a 6' gate and use an effortless check-in/check-out code box to unlock the door. The super comfortable queen bed has a topper, down alternative pillows and a heated mattress pad. In the bedroom are two dresser side tables, adjustable wall lamps and a black-out window shade. There is also a laptop friendly writing desk with a charging station for all your electronics. The new bath has marble floors, white subway tile, a walk-in shower with bench, towels, washcloths and all the amenities. The living room area has a 48" TV, two comfortable chairs, wifi, a poker set and cards. Enjoy coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the kitchen along with a complementary breakfast, juices and snacks. You might be tempted to stay in but Del Ray offers great restaurants for every taste and budget and all are just a few minutes walk away.

Where you’ll be

Alexandria, Virginia, United States

Del Ray is a special place because it marries the amenities of a big city with the charm of a small town. The (very!) dog- and kid-friendly town welcomes folks with big signature events like Art on the Avenue and our raucous Halloween Parade, where prizes are awarded for best-dressed dogs and best-decorated strollers. First Thursdays bring out the crowds during the warmer months and the Del Ray Farmer's Market is open year-round every Saturday morning, offering local fruit, vegetables, eggs and cheese. On the north side of town is the Birchmere, America's legendary music hall with the best acoustics you'll ever hear.

We like to use Airbnb as a base for exploring new places and visiting family. We are active and enjoy walking around to see the sights. We also are Airbnb Superhosts ourselves, so we know what you want from a guest! We have 2 small Jack Russells terriers that often travel with us, so let us know if you are dog people.

During your stay

We are a professional couple sharing our home with Scout and Atticus, a pair of short-legged Jack Russell terrier siblings. One of us will usually be home and we are always happy to answer questions and suggest fun venues to work, play and dine. If you will be bringing or renting bikes, let John work up a local ride that matches your interests. If antiques and museums are your thing, Monika will set you up with an insider's guide to the best shops and auctions in the area. We want you to have a wonderful time!
