Kathie was the perfect hostess! She was friendly and made us feel welcome and at home. She provided maps, and wonderful advice about restaurants, where to walk and shop. Her home was clean, quiet and well appointed. I would definitely stay there again when I return to DC.
Kathie is a wonderful host. Her apartment is small but very lovely. The guest bed is very comfortable!
Loved it. Kathy offered to pick me up from the Subway and was very friendly and helped with everything i needed. The room and apartment were clean.
This was my first airbnb stay and I could not have been happier!
Kathie's home is literally like stepping into a spread in an upscale decorating magazine! Beautiful decor, neat and clean and her cat Missy is a hoot!
She is a fantastic hostess, more than willing to help you get around and she has maps and tourist books for you to use as well.
Kathie made me feel like her home was just as much mine as hers and that is true hospitality!
In addition we had wonderful conversations and it was nice to have someone to listen to me and all of the days events!
I really appreciated the peace and quiet of her flat and the comfort and ease and closeness to everything in DC. So close to everything in Alexandria and DC you couldn't ask for a better location and a more reasonable price!
I hope I get the chance to stay with her again!
It is with great pleasure that I recommend staying with Katie.
Her home is clean and she is a wonderful hostess. She loves her kitty for sure!
It was my first time staying at an Air B and B place and I needed a place to stay in between moving out of my apartment to moving abroad.
She definitely made what could have been a tough transition in my life into something much less stressful and I am forever grateful! Thanks Katie!
Kathie is a wonderful hostess! She's very welcoming, friendly, and her place is clean, warm and cozy. I felt like home over the 4 days that I spend there!
Her place is very conveniently located in a walking distance from the Braddock Road Metro Station and Old Town Alexandria. Definitely a must-see!
I really enjoyed my week-long stay with Kathie. She was the ideal host - friendly, welcoming, kind and helpful. And her cat Missy was equally welcoming! The apartment is very cosy with pretty decor, and the bed was very comfortable. Despite the heat outside the apartment felt fresh, light and breezy. Access to the swimming pool next door also helped deal with the heat! The only slight downside was the distance to the metro - Braddock Road is a 20-minute walk, and it's also 20 minutes to walk to King Street (opposite end from the King Street metro). Having said that, once at the station it was very easy to get quickly in to Downtown, and there is also a good bus service. It's definitely worth the journey to have such a lovely introduction to Alexandria.
Kathie is a very nice person. She picked me up from the airport and answered all my questions. A very nice and clean apartment and neighborhood. I would stay there again.
A very nice place with all you can imagine. The bedroom is perfect and so is the neighborhood. Not far from downtown of Alexandria or the metro station. Kathie, the hostess, is very friendly and helpful, responsive to questions.
Perfect location and staying at this location was a pleasure. If you are looking for a great spot in Alexandria this would be my recommendation.
Kathie was fabulous.
She was interesting and knowledgeable about Washington DC. Plus she was really easy to be with.
Kathie was an excellent guest. She left my place better than she found it!
I was Kathie's rooommate for over a year. I couldn't have asked for a better roomie! She is friendly, considerate and always willing to help with anything.
Living at Canal Place (her apartment) was great -- the apartment is lovely, neat and well-maintained, the neighborhood is beautiful, and the location is fantastic. It's just steps away from King Street's restaurants and shops, two blocks from the scenic Potomac River, and a very easy commute to DC.
Her home is beautiful and spacious (considering it's small size) in the beautiful historic Old Town Alexandria. The location is quiet too and the dog-crazy neighbors are very nice, there is a strong sense of community.
