CNN / Money magazine recently voted Vienna, VA the 3rd Best Small Town in America for 2013, based on tranquility, low crime, culture, easy access to the Nation's Capital, and other factors. 'Unlike other cookie-cutter suburbs in Northern Virginia, Vienna offers walkability, a historic center, a charming hometown main street and unique businesses that give Vienna an identity all its own.
A town green anchors the community and serves as a gathering spot for local events, like the Concerts on the Green summer series. A 45-mile bike path and park built on the roadbed of a former railroad cuts right through town, and downtown is dotted with one-of-a-kind stores such as 'antique row' and homegrown eateries. The small-town feel comes with easy access to all the D.C. metro area attractions'.
Richard, I found this house to perfectly suit our 2nd annual Family Reunion--
What makes this house unique--is the laid back vibe of the house, the ability to have over 45 people there for our family reunion, and with the basketball courts, the pool and the loft it never felt crowded. It is one of the few houses guests felt that smoking outside was okay, as there were ashtrays, and there was more than enough parking. I literally saw three deer while we were there, and your quick response time was something I highly appreciated, as well as your pool concierge helping us almost every day with some thing or another, she is awesome.
Your house is a different house from most home away houses, it is more relaxed, it is eclectic, it has a 60’s vibe; and most definitely it is meant for large groups, it has many different areas for people to hang out—and I felt completely safe with the younger kids running all over the property alone. There was even the ability to have Music at the pool! Now when we visit Virginia we will be hard pressed to find a home with a backyard and easy vibe; like yours, and the memories we have there will last a life time.
I thank you for allowing us to rent your home, I hope you found it in good condition with all linens and towels washed and beds stripped, to make for an easier transition. Even though in true relaxed style there were few rules and we could have just picked up our clothes and left, I thank you so much for our memories and our fun time! We would definitely rent there again.
We rented this property for a reunion with friends in the DC area this past summer. It was really close to the metro (about a 5 minute drive), so we were able to see all the attractions in DC very easily. We found ourselves not wanting to leave the house though because of all the great things there: pool, hot tub, basketball court, game room, you name it! My friends and I loved grilling on the deck and enjoying the beautiful weather and views. The kitchen in this house is huge, so if you love to cook this place is perfect for you. Also the bedrooms had new tv's and REALLY comfy beds. I highly recommend this property, we are trying to have a reunion here every summer!
I have been a VRBO participant for about 6 years, and have had travelled all over the world, having the pleasure of staying at some great properties. However, I have not stayed at anything like this place - it was the "complete package" that made our family reunion special. The biggest complaint we heard from our friends is they spent too much time in DC away from this spectacular property and wish they could stay longer...! The 5 acre outdoor space was incredible - we had gatherings around the outdoor fireplace in the French country courtyard. This place has all of the modern amenities but you just felt like you were at home back in Europe. The incredible attention to detail, the beautiful furnishings, nice décor, and comfortable beds are only a few of the things that we enjoyed. Family heirlooms and treasures tastefully gave the rooms a sense of warmth and love. The five bedrooms are large and luxurious, each with a flat screen TV; there are I-pod ready music systems throughout the property that really set the tone of our gathering - we played all types of music, indoors & out.. The sport court hosted many games of basketball and volleyball - what a blast! The Master Suite is gorgeous and the second suite has 2 queen beds and a private balcony. The downstairs Game Room with a Table Tennis, Jukebox, and 73" surround sound TV became a constant hang out for the kids while the adults stayed in the beautiful sunroom with gas fireplace and summer kitchen. It was recently renovated but still carries that old world charm. The spa was an added treat that only added to the comfort of this beautiful estate and allowed for even more family time. The owners supplied plenty of towels and linens. My family and I stayed in this home over our summer holiday, and the absolute greatest pleasure for me was being in a gorgeous kitchen that new & modern, and filled with absolutely everything we needed to cook with. We didn't have to bring anything other than our food. We had a wonderful family holiday, and I am so grateful to the owners of this home. They are just marvelous people, and were so kind and accommodating. I also must add that this home was immaculate. The outdoor spaces combined this the modern old world charm of this home is what really made it special. It is a very special place, and you will see and feel this as soon as you enter the home. Believe me, my family will be back in this home again and often.
Our family celebrated July 4th in the heart of the nation's capital!! It was a breeze to metro into DC from the Vienna station, and for those of us who stayed behind (for a more intimate Independence Day bbq), all the fireworks could be heard right from the back deck! The grill worked great, no charcoal, no mess. The tiki-torches+cedar fires, heated pool, and beautiful views really made the occasion special!! We are going to bring the whole family again next summer B-)
