Perfect space for long or short term stays. Two queen beds plus 2 sleeper sofa queens; outdoor screened in porch; organic garden; off-street parking for 2 (or 3 Minis); and pet friendly. Close to tons of public transit, shopping, and entertainment!

The space

Our house is in the Arlandria (Arlington/Alexandria border) area known as Chirilagua or North Del Ray. Within walking distance to two metro stations it is a surrounded by cute (Del Ray - great local music, local delicatessans and delicious El Salvadorean food!), essential (Potomac Yards- what's better than an evening stroll to the movie theater and grocery shopping?) and fashionable (Crystal City with its own ice skating rink and mall). We are nestled between multiple bus and trolley-lines and are within easy biking distance (we are right on 400 miles of bike trails that can take you anywhere you want to go) into the the heart of the District, the Orange line corridor and Old Town Alexandria.

Both rooms have queen beds. The master has reading area, a walk in shower and dual sink bathroom while the 2nd bedroom is a cosy multi-use room with a bathroom across the hall. Full access kitchen with gas stove. Enclosed deck with open back patio area with firepit.

We host animals but the 2nd room has been kept allergen/pet free and the majority of the house has wood floors to reduce potential issues.

Off-street parking for two cars (and potentially three if you angle things correctly!)

Pretty much perfect.

Guest access

The entire house and property (including off street parking) are included.

Interaction with guests

We live within minutes from the house and prefer to be there to meet our guests and give them the 'lay of the land' but also understand that sometimes that is just not guest-preferred or logistically possible so we try to stay flexible. Either way we are always available to provide support, answer questions, or offer recommendations and we always try to invite guests to local events or hang outs (no pressure of course!) that happen to occur during their stay so they can really get to know the neighborhood.

This was a great location and we loved having the back patio and fenced in area for our dogs. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful home. Very quiet neighborhood located close to restaurants, stores, bars and 3 miles from Washington DC. The best place I've ever stayed. We will be back in this rental VERY soon. We were only there for a quick weekend visit, but would like to go back for a longer vacation. We will definitely be staying here again. It was clean. Everything was prepared for us. Bravo!! Excellent rental.

This is a great two bedrooms place very convenient for Alexandria, DC and the surrounding areas. It is clean, smartly furnished and equipped and was just right for the three of us. We only had to contact Ryan about the air con and he was very friendly and helpful and got us sorted quickly.

We had a great stay at Ryan and Emily's! Communication was excellent throughout. Everything was as described. It was a great place to relax after busy days sight seeing. Lots of places to eat and other amenities close by. Would definitely plan a return trip here!

Great place to stay outside of DC. We were there to participate in the Rolling Thunder rally and the location couldn't have been better. Easy to get to the Pentagon and almost as easy to get back from the Memorials. Parking in the back was the perfect size for our group. If we visit DC again, we will definitely look to stay here again.

Well situated apartment and the host was easily contactable. While one bedroom was quite big with attached bathroom, the other room was really tiny. For two families it was a bit of an issue. This will suit a family with children. Apartment was clean and well kept. Could do with kitchen napkins and toilet roll as we couldn't find stock. We had to run to the department store nearby to stock the same while we stayed. It's a nice neighbourhood and two minutes walk to a mall and restaurants. Car parking available as described. The lawn isn't been mowed in a while which Ryan had informed us about. To get to The mall (which is where all the museums, memorials, white house and capitol are situated) is a short ride from a near by bus stop to Pentagon where you switch to train. The total ride is half hour to 45 minutes including waiting time. We liked our stay overall. Thank you Ryan and Emily!

Response from Ryan And Emily:
Thank you for the review, Kamala. We appreciate any feedback for ways to make guests' stays more comfortable and will make sure paper goods are kept in better stock. We live in a small neighborhood and our mailman thought he was doing us a favor by delivering them to our home instead of this house :) We've also hired lawn care to help out. I am glad you had a good stay and hope you can come again.

Ryan and Emily's place was perfect for us, truly a home away from home with everything we needed and very convenient to the city. We're grateful they shared it with us and would go back in a heartbeat!
