Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Aurora Highlands - Instrata at Pentagon City

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms/ 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-4)

Our two bedroom / two bathroom fully furnished vacation rental is located in Arlington, VA, in an urban neighborhood called Pentagon City. Pentagon City offers the conveniences of a big city, while providing an upbeat, family-friendly atmosphere. Pentagon City is located just minutes away from Washington DC attractions via Metro, taxi, or car. The Pentagon City Metro station hosts the blue and yellow line train that are minutes from the National Mall, Smithsonian, White House, National Zoo, Reagan National Airport, Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, and Old Town Alexandria.

Directly across from the property is a city park, complete with tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts, not to mention 2 playgrounds and walking trails. Nearby, at the Pentagon Row Shops, residents are treated to a summertime concert series and in the winter, an outdoor skating rink. Surrounding this plaza are the Pentagon Row shops and an array of internationally diverse restaurants. Co-located is the Fashion Center at Pentagon City, a multi-level shopping mall, which offers its customers a wide array of shopping choices and a large food court. Pentagon City also has a Harris Teeter Grocery Store and Rite Aide Pharmacy.

Our vacation rental offers “A home away from home” experience. Inside our vacation rental, you will find all the comforts of home to include a fully equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer in the unit. The community offers a variety of amenities to include, a large fitness center with yoga studio, cardio room, and weight room. An outdoor pool and hot tub is open between the Memorial Day to Labor Day Holiday weekends. In addition, there is a large club room, business center, billiards room, and movie theater. Proximity is key; our vacation rental is located within a hundred yards of the Pentagon City Metro Station and is adjacent to the Fashion Center at Pentagon City.

About Joe Szoboszlay

I have lived in Pentagon City for the last 15 years and am now enjoying retirement. My condo complex is the best location for the vacation traveler. It is within 100 yards of the Metro Station and 30 yards to the Pentagon City Mall.

Great Location and Size

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this apartment for our trip to Washington, D.C. It was about a 5 minute walk to the closest subway station and about 10 minutes to a grocery store. There was also a mall and restaurants all within walking distants. It felt extremely safe and it was much cheaper than most places we looked at. The beds were comfortable, the owner got back with us right away with several things we needed since we were traveling with small children. The doors to the building lock after a certain time and there is always someone at the front desk in the lobby. Each bedroom had a bathroom in it which was very nice. We would stay here again if/when we go back to DC.

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

We are incredibly happy that we chose to stay at the Instrata. I always do a lot of research before I choose a place for our family of 4 to stay. My #1 priority is safety and cleanliness. Then I worry about the combination of fun, convenience and price. The Instrata was perfect in every area. It is in a wonderful neighborhood. The apartment was huge and immaculately clean. We drove to D.C. (this unit is technically in Arlington but it sure seemed like we were incredibly close to everything we wanted to see) and we NEVER moved our car out of the provided parking spot. This was possible because the metro stop was less than 1 block away from the side door of the building. From this stop you can get to EVERY major spot in D.C. If you have never ridden the D.C. metro it is incredibly clean and convenient. After a long day of sightseeing my kids really enjoyed cooling off in the pool. The mini-movie theater was a big hit as well. There are a ton of restaurants within walking distance. The staff of the building was incredibly nice. We even had a chance to meet the owners who were also great. We got all of this for about the price of a single hotel room. Perfect place to stay.

Exactly what we wanted! Close to everything * Comfortable * High End Location

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay! There were five of us - three adults, and two kids (ages 10 and 13). We had more than enough room for everyone. I was AMAZED by the size of the property. I thought we'd be squeezing into a tiny space, but was wrong! The apartment is nice and roomy - a nice big living room, fully kitchen, dining area, large bedrooms, big bathrooms, plenty of storage, and a nice balcony!

The balcony overlooks a park where we went for runs, played on the playground, watched a local soccer game, etc.

Walk out the backdoor and right into Nordstroms! Walk one minute more and arrive at the metro. We took the metro all over because it was so convenient.

The food options are many - food court at the mall, casual restaurants literally across the street, small diverse cafes around the corner. I even did some grocery shopping by walking to Harris Teeter.

I'm trying to think of anything that I wish had been different, but I can't think of anything!

Staying here was like having the comfort of home with the excitement and luxury of vacationing in a big city. JUST RIGHT!

We'll recommend the property to friends and hope to be back ourselves!

Fantastic Condo, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently took her 80 year old parents on a Washington DC vacation and stayed at the Metropolitan, and we were all very happy we did. It is so close to the Metro, which made it really easy getting to and from all the museums and monuments. Once we parked in the garage when we arrived, we didn't drive at all the rest of the week. The condo is also right next to a major mall with a large food court if you are interested. There are also plenty of other restaurants within easy walking distance. The condo unit was perfect - much better than staying in a hotel.

I would highly recommend staying here.

Great property, great owner - great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at htis property - it was as promised in the VRBO site, in terms of site amenities and location. The location, two stops from Reagan and three stops from downtown DC, can't be beat. Our family had a great time and we would without hesitation stay again - thanks Joe!

Great family vacation that we will be talking about for a long time

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Washington DC for our family and it was a great experience from the start to the finish. Joe and Gina did a great job getting this ready for us. The apartment was very clean and spacious. The family room separated the two bedrooms for privacy and the bathrooms that were connected to each was nice. The location was perfect for visiting all the sites that we wanted to do. Metro rail, bus, and taxis were a short walk. Restaurants (Champs & Sine) were only a 5 minute walk along with Harris Teeter & Rite Aid. We actually parked our van on Sunday and did not get back into it until Friday when we left. I would recommend this location to family and friends for visiting the DC area.
