About JS

Currently live in Washington DC, and grew up in sunny South Florida. You can probably find me renovating homes in my spare time. I live a healthy active lifestyle.

JS purchased this apartment in 2010

Why JS chose Arlington, VA

There are actually two units in this recently renovated Duplex.

I have two different listings, one for each floor.

There are several accommodations in Washington DC that are twice the distance to the White House and National Mall area, where the majority of the museums are located.

Cherrydale is a charming neighborhood with good reliable public transit. The neighborhood is very safe, with dozens nearby places to eat, coffee shops, pharmacies.

Arlington Virginia is as great way to experience the entire Metro DC and at the end of the day have a quiet, comfortable place to relax. We are 3 miles to the Georgetown section of Washington DC and the White House.

There are several grocery stores nearby, Safeway is with 1/4 mile. Harris Teeter and Giant are also very close, less than a 1/2 mile. This location is very close walk, to Ballston, Virginia Square, and Clarendon metro on Orange line of DC metro. Check online to see the map for the Metro DC transportation. The Metro will take you directly to Downtown, the National Mall, plus all other interesting sights in the city.

Free unrestricted street parking in front of property, Also one or two parking space(s) on the property in driveway if you have a car.

Commuter bicycles can be made available for use. Please ask in advance, so I can make arrangements.

What makes this apartment unique

Parking is free. Parking is reserved.

Great Full size kitchen should you want to cook for yourself.

We are located in a very safe area.

10-15 minute walk (.7 mile) to the Ballston Metro station on the Orange Line. Virginia Square Metro is also within a mile.

Please review the entire listing carefully, many of your questions are answered or described in the listing.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted with water, sodas, snacks, milk, and more. Very grateful since we arrived at night and were too tired to go to the store, let alone find one. The morning after our arrival, J. Steve showed up bearing breakfast of warm bread and croissants. He goes out of his way for his guests, which makes you feel very welcome. The condo has lots of room and easily handled our family of four. The kitchen is large and fully stocked, if one is inclined to cook. It has 1 1/2 baths, perfect for those avoiding bathroom break fights. And, the beds are so comfortable, I don't think I have ever slept so deep. The space is modern, functional, attractive and has every cable channel you could wish for. It was too cold for us to hang out outside, but you can tell it will be a wonderful outdoor space in the back for warmer temperatures. The condo is close to everything from the Metro, restaurants, grocery store, etc. It is set in a nice neighborhood, which gives the feel of home. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

High-End, Great Location, Excellent Service!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment three times over the years, and the experience is better than I would have ever imagined. The kitchen is one of the nicest I've ever seen (even better than my own!): nicely appointed, large, and has nearly gourmet everything, down to the KitchenAid mixer (which I have used many times). The rooms are generous and there's tons of closet space. Steve goes beyond necessary when you need anything or if there is a problem. Once, we had a problem with the bath/shower faucet, and it was fixed that day. The quality of the furnishings is nicer than most people's houses. The beds are super comfortable. In the summer, it's amazing because there are two grilling/picnic areas, one for each of the two flats in the building. He owns the entire three-flat building, so there are no weird neighbor problems. And, he's around in the area, not some vacant owner, so if you need anything at all, he provides personal service. Which means he also knows the area, so he can make a good recommendation on pizza, etc. I could go on and on about how great this apartment is, and how wonderful the service is. But, try it for yourself! Worth every penny.

Perfect stay.

  • 5 of 5

Wij verbleven op de beneden verdieping. Het appartement is meer dan dik in orde. Je kan op Jay rekenen. Locatie is dichtbij DC maar is ook perfect gelegen om dagtrips te maken (Gettysburg, Annapolis ea). Wij namen Brussels Airlines, directe vlucht. Hier was de kwaliteit ook uitstekend. Besluit : doen!

Steve sets the gold standard for all other VRBOs

  • 5 of 5

Steve was as solicitous as anyone I've worked with (many terrific experiences in VRBO or a certain rival who shall go unnamed) and is always there to help in any way that he can. But I want to focus on his amazing accommodations (which are also a reflection of how willing he is to please). Steve's space is gorgeous, immaculate and huge.

If it's possible to undervalue a space by a large margin, he has (I'm a New Yorker and NY-ers are hyper-conscious of square-footage and value in housing). But I think this is because most people don't know the Cherrydale neighborhood. As a typical NY-er without a car, I can say that the distance from his apartment to the Ballston or Virginia Square Metro is a pittance and both subway stations are part of a large extended commercial district. There is a Macy's at Ballston and my 5-year old and I ice-skated there.

The apartment is exquisite with not a fixture or piece of furniture older than six months or so. You feel like you are living in a model apartment of a new condo development that needs to showcase its best apartment. Yet the apartment (and its beds and sofa) are ultra-comfortable. The kitchen is vast and has every utensil, plus the deck --where you can grill -- overlooks a generous backyard.

I'd stay at Steve's again in a heartbeat. My son and I felt like cherished guests. No detail is overlooked -- even the bathroom is stocked with luxurious samples of Philosophy and other upscale products. If you want to feel pampered and secure in knowing that no detail has been overlooked, this is the VRBO for you!

Hard to believe this place exists at this value

  • 5 of 5

We used both apartments for an extended stay recently for our large group. The upgrades since last time are incredible...and it was wonderful then too! Clean, beautiful space. Kitchen well appointed, towels, linens, cable TV, internet...great light through the windows, beautiful furniture and artwork. Plus the location is ideal for access to metro or highway...in or away from DC. Ours was a business trip but this would be ideal for sightseeing vacationers too. Thanks so much, J Steve!!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

WOW.....

What a great place to stay.

Very spacious, clean and quiet apartment located at the end of a cul-de-sac. And... SAFE....why you could (and we did) take a walk at 2 in the morning if you so desired.

Everything you need (including huge soft fluffy bath towels) from linens to even more linens to soaps to cookware to coffee. We were informed of sites near by and given information about places to visit in nearby Washington DC and also of transportation options. J Steve and Rick had every base covered.

Now...to the backyard....complete with grill, fire pit, fire wood and comfortable seating. Great place for relaxing, grilling, reminiscing and.....that glass of wine.

Just minutes away from dining, shopping, The National Mall, Smithsonian and many more attractions.

This place, not only met but, exceeded our expectations. Definitely 5 star.

We highly recommend this location and hope to return again in the near future.

J Steve and Rick are awesome.
