Allison was very responsive from the beginning; we had a little trouble with the door code but she immediately gave us another one and in less than 1 minute we were in the home. The home is in a very nice and safe area and literally just steps from the Metro bus stop. It is centrally located, just a few minutes drive to Old Town Alexandria, DC, and about a 15 minute drive from Mt Vernon's George Washington's home. We took the Metro bus to Pentagon station and then from there we took the subway to all our destinations, all just minutes away.
We loved her furniture; she has many antique tables and hutches, and they were just fabulous. The beds were VERY comfortable, the house spotless clean. The most important thing for me was noise levels; I heard NOTHING the entire time I was there. It was so quiet, peaceful, and tranquil we really enjoyed it. There was a cute patio although we were out all day so we were not able to enjoy it. There is a full bathroom downstairs with a shower and a full bathroom upstairs with a bathtub, washer and dryer, full kitchen, etc. It was great being able to warm up leftover food. All in all, a fantastic place!
Just two minutes from the home there is Cafe Pizzaiolo, a quaint italian restaurant with the best pizza and lasagna ever and the streets at Shirlington with many places to eat are just minutes away.
I was disappointed our trip was so short yet happy to have found a great place to stay. We will definitely stay there again!
