I am a retired professional who has lived on 3 different continents and traveled the world. I enjoy gardening, traveling, learning and cooking. I have been on Homeaway for several years and have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my home and meeting new people. I look forward to hosting my guests but need to know something about them before accepting them in my home so please share your stories.
Najla purchased this Apartment in 2003
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Najla was a wonderful hostess. We had everything we needed and were quite comfortable.
We opted to rent a car and drive into DC but the McLean metro stop is about 5 minutes away. Grocery stores were about 5 min. We felt very safe in the neighborhood. We did have rush hour traffic if we left before 10am and headed home when things closed about 5:30pm--that's just DC. As far as the unit itself, things were a little crowded for 9 people but we knew that before we rented and were just sleeping there so it was fine, probably suited best for 4-6 people. Thank you Najla! :)
It was wonderful to host you Jenny. You have a great family of very well behaved kids. You are doing an awesome job of raising them. Thank you all for helping shovel the snow. Thank you for inviting me to share your dinners; I was very touched by that
Great stay - will come again
Najla was a great host and it was very spacious and private. The location was ideal, close enough to the city, yet quiet and subburban.
Charl and his group were very respectful of the rules and pleasant to deal with. They were quiet, sociable, amiable and discreet.
Cozy basement apartment in McLean
Our family of six had a very nice stay in this comfortable basement apartment. The space is very kid-friendly and the owner could not have been nicer. She was very accommodating and helpful. The location is perfect - close to downtown by car, 5 mins from West Falls Church metro station, close to grocery store and restaurants, close to Great Falls National Park, but still tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. We had a very nice stay and would recommend for anyone (especially those with children). Very pleased with our experience!
Just as described
Super clean, great and safe location. The host is an extremely nice lady.
Very nice quiet base for our DC vacation.
This place worked well for us to access all that we needed for our visits to DC and Gettysburg.
Comfortable at a great price
This apartment was very nice. The mattresses were firm and comfortable. Everything was clean and in good condition. For this area the price was very reasonable. The neighborhood is very quiet and close to Tysons Corner and DC. I would definitely stay there again.
Our house is very close to downtown McLean, an upscale, quiet, green neighborhood just outside Washington, DC. Drive 5 minutes to West Falls Church Metro station and take a short ride to visit the Smithsonian museums, the White House, the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Pentagon, Old town Alexandria or the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Shop to your heart's content at Tysons Corner, the Galleria or Leesburg Outlet mall. Eat out and go to the movies at Clarendon, Ballston. Canoe or bike on the C&O canal and the endless miles of bike trails that take you to DC . Take hikes at Great Falls National Park, Red River bend or take a day trip in the Blue Ridge mountains.
Other Activities: Canoeing
