Vanessa's place was very charming, it is exactly as you see it in the pictures and the house is placed in a beautiful area. She was incredibly accommodating and was quick to answer all my questions via text. I would definitely recommend this place and I hope I will get the opportunity to book with her again in the future!
We had a great time and loved Vanessa's house. It was very comfortable and she was a great host.
Although we were not able to meet Vanessa in person upon our arrival or departure, our check-in was smooth and we settled in quickly.
The facilities in the apartment were very good and convenient - we were even able to do a laundry run in their machine. The kitchen was well equipped, and we were able to cook our meals with ease. The only thing that would have made things a little bit easier would have been a real coffee machine, but the cafetiere worked fine as well.
Connectivity worked fine, good WiFi all over the house (important to stay connected to family and the outside world).
The bed was large and very comfortable, we slept well, and bathroom facilities were sufficient.
The apartment is very well located, with the charming center of Alexandria in walking distance, and a Trader Joe's 3 or 4 blocks away. We used both Braddock station and King Street station for getting in and out of Washington. Especially the free trolly bus that runs regularly between King Street Station and the waterfront was very convenient and shortened the walking, especially because it also stops at Columbus Ave.
In addition to a useful instruction sheet with info about the apartment, connectivity and appliances, Vanessa provided a plastic detailed map of Washington, Alexandria and the MTA for their guests, which proved invaluable for finding our way.
Vanessa provided parking permits for every day of our stay, so we could leave our car parked close to the house.
All in all we had a very nice stay, felt right at home in a nice and safe neighbourhood, and would recommend Vanessa's place to anyone.
the place is great located in the heart of Alexandria - just a short ~20min from the mall in Washington.
the apartment is just like the pictures, the street is quite and nice, not far from the "main street" of Alexandria, where you can shop and find what ever you need.
we where 4 of us (2 parents + 2 children) the main bed room was great, the other was a double Air mattress in a workroom - it was harder to sleep in, but was OK.
Vanessa was not there during the visit, but we did find our way in and out w/o problems.
worth to mention it's her own place, not an additional unit (I think) so it's a comfortable home far from home - we warmly recommend it!
Nous n'avons pas pu rencontrer Vanessa mais l'appartement etait grand, confortable, et tres bien situe pour visiter a la fois de centre d'Alexandria et Washington DC (facilement accessible en metro)
My parents and I had a wonderful stay at Vanessa's place. Her apartment was well organized, clean, and welcoming. It was great to spend the weekend in such beautiful surroundings. I was also impressed with how responsive Vanessa was. Any time I had a question about checking in or checking out, she responded within minutes! This was my first AirB&B experience and other places have a lot to live up to!
Still on our road trip, but Vanessa and her husband were very gracious, we loved their dog and would definitely recommend their beautiful condo again. Their location is very close to Old Town Alexandria and convenient to all transportation.
Yes, we would stay here again.

Overall we had a really nice stay. Easy to get to the Metro Station. Parking was ample and very easy to find a spot near the apartment. Vanessa was easy to contact and was very helpful suggesting places to eat. Pictures on the listing are very accurate. Great, safe neighborhood. Very cozy apartment.
Great flat with a great location!
An absolute delight! Vanessa's place is very clean and beautiful. This was our first experience using Airbnb and we couldn't be happier! She was very helpful and easy to reach at all times. The apartment is perfect to travel back and forth to Washington through the metro, the grocery store is around the corner and there are plenty of restaurants and shops just a few blocks away. Very safe and clean neighborhood. Our kids loved the tv program selections and my son even said: "mom, we had the best place ever!"
Vanessa was a great guest! It was my first time hosting so she was able to guide me through the process. My place was in great condition when I returned, and she was nice enough to water my plants for me. I'd have Vanessa as a guest anytime!
