About Todd Minnies

Former U.S. Foreign Service Officer who served at many U.S. embassies abroad as well as the U.S. Senate, the White House, Treasury and Commerce Departments.

Todd Minnies purchased this house in 1992

Why Todd Minnies chose West Falls Church

I purchased this 100 year old farmhouse and beautiful lot to preserve it from being torn down and subdivided. I renovated it over the next decade and it was a wonderful family home for my four daughters. It is open and ideal for entertaining, close to schools and parks and allows quick access to Washington D.C. It is close to Seven Corners & Lake Bancroft.

What makes this house unique

This unique and fully furnished home is ideal for short to long-term stays in the Washington D.C. area. The wrap around covered porch and connected outdoor dining area, plus the many windows and glass doors overlooking the landscaped and treed gardens, provide beautiful vistas through all seasons. The living room fireplace & outdoor ciminea make it an inviting home for winter. Year round garden/lawn maintenance insures the property remains in beautiful condition.

Incredible home and an incredible experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house!! Our family lived in this home for approximately 11 months and it was an incredible experience! The home has a fantastic mix of "old DC charm" and a modern touch. It is very clean, well taken care of and spacious. The beauty of the home is definitely matched by the beauty of the property it sits on...large, mature trees give quite a bit of privacy and shade in the summertime. The neighborhood is also very nice - quiet with nice neighbors who maintain their properties. Finally, as much as we loved the home we cannot say enough good things about the owner, Todd. He was extremely attentive, very responsive and such a pleasure to work with. We cannot recommend this home strongly enough...we would absolutely stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review. I could not have asked for better tenants or a nicer family who cared for my home as if it was their own. It was a wonderful experience for me & I hope you return to DC soon.

A lovely home in a beautiful natural setting

  • 5 of 5

The home is a very comfortable home with plenty of room inside and out. Although it is in a residential area, it has a large, beautiful lot in a quiet area. We greatly enjoyed the deck and front porch where we could relax and watch the birds. The home is well stocked in the kitchen and elsewhere. The owner was very responsive---both quick responses and detailed information---- to all of our inquiries and needs both before and during our stay. We would stay there again. Photos were accurate as to the home.

Best place we've stayed!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this house. Location, amenities, space--it has it all.Needing to leave our Foreign Service post unexpectedly early due to unforeseen circumstances, we came across this listing after being told by many other furnished apartments that they did not have 3 bedrooms. What luck! We could not have been happier. Todd, the owner and former Foreign Service officer, totally understood our needs for billing and he was always accessible, even when he was on vacation in Europe! He also was flexible with check in. The house has everything you need to move right in, right down to laundry soap, toilet paper, even first aid kits. After coming back from overseas, this place was the perfect place for our family of four to relax while we looked for a house in the area. Also, the space was perfect for me to continue homeschooling our daughters. The owner even has printers for your use. The house is close to everything, yet you feel far away from the chaos. We even walked to the park regularly during our six week stay. Hands down best owner we've worked with and best place we've stayed at. I would have stayed the year!

This Home is everything it claims to be and so much more!!!!! Best Rental Experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful! It felt just like home to us for the 6 months we had the opportunity to live in it... The house is located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood with access to public transportation within walking distance. It affords the opportunity of the DC lifestyle while giving you the get away feeling. The house has everything all you need to do is show up with your clothes. The owner is amazing, very responsive to all request and concerns. He went above and beyond on several minor and I mean minor issues..... He went out of his way to ensure our safety and comfort... This house is a true gem in the short term rental world!!!! Hope we get to see it again in the future.....

Excellent Home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a great area. The home is very well cared for and made my visit even better. Was able to relax and destress. Very close to alot of history including Great Falls Park, Manassas Battlefield, Cherry Hill Farmhouse and great bike trail which qas less than 1/2 mile away. Great place to rent for families and alot a land for kids to run around on. The owner was outstanding, very easy to deal with and made sure I had everything I needed. Rather stay here than in DC. Was only a 15 minute drive to DC / museums. (Military and Law Enforcement: Only 5 minutes to Fort Myer home to Old Guard/Arlington).
