About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Single family Home on 1/2 acre lot near the Nations Capital!

This pretty cottage is located in the heart of Northern Virginia. It is convenient to Dulles and Reagan National airports, as well as the major highways of the area including; Fairfax County Parkway, Capital Beltway, Routes I-66 and I-95.

In addition to the easy access to Washington DC there are many other sights to see in the area. This home will provide the comfort and relaxation you’ll need after a day of sightseeing, attending a local event or doing business. For the price of a hotel room, you get the comfort of an entire 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom house, (garage is not part of rental, it is used by owner).The kitchen is fully equipped, and you can cook and dine in as you like. There is a large driveway for parking, and shooting basketball hoops, as well as outdoor furniture, and gas grill for cooking out.

You will have a private and autonomous stay. Hosts are live nearby, and can be available to you, should you need anything during your visit to Northern Virginia.

This is a safe, private, beautiful setting. You won’t have to go far for some of the best dining, shopping and fun things to do in the area.

You will need a car however, but the metro is 10 minutes away and from there you can travel to the Washington, D.C., and other areas in the metropolitan D.C, Maryland and NoVA area.

Then entire house has been remodeled and updated. Enjoy this beautiful, clean and decorated American theme home.

Beautiful house and setting!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this super cute cottage! It is located in a beautiful neighborhood with shopping, gas, and restaurants very close by. We drove into DC everyday; it was an easy commute! (About 30 minutes depending on the time of day!) The house was very comfortable for our group of 6. The beds were comfy with extra blankets if needed. There were nice updated bathrooms and an efficient kitchen for quick meals. Extra necessities were provided in a supply closet, which was very much appreciated. Our boys enjoyed the basketball hoop by the garage too! Overall it was a great vacation and a comfortable, cozy rental!

Cozy and comfy!

Nice property -- very comfortable and quiet and pleasant. Yes, it's an a semi-busy street, but it's far enough back that I never noticed any noise, despite working weird hours and sleeping through most of the day.

Most of our complaints are things that the owner must already be aware of, but doesn’t see as a deficit, or they make the economic choice to ignore.

It was VERY cold in the house. There was one space heater that we moved from room to room. We put every available blanket on the beds, and still shivered through the nights. On evening #6, Jessica called to ask if we were cold, and then brought in 4 additional space heaters and two more quilts, explaining that it was impossible for the heat pump to keep up with the extreme cold.

Earlier in the week, when we started to do laundry, we discovered that there was no laundry detergent. As I explained to Joe, if we had known going in that we were required to supply some very basic supplies, we would have picked them up before arriving at the house. Instead, we discovered, one by one, the things that were missing, often at inconvenient times, or when all the stores were closed on Christmas Day.

The kitchen had one, filthy, cutting board, dull knives and a broken spatula. The nonstick pans are in bad shape. Other pans and utensils appeared to have been put away dirty.

Only very thin bath towels are provided, no wash cloths or hand towels. When I asked about those, the spatula and cutting board, Joe brought over an odd assortment of kitchen towels, wash cloths, a piece of old countertop material, and a couple of rubber bowl scrapers.

The beds are about the comfort level of a cheap motel.

On the upside, the house, itself, was clean.

SO many reasons it works

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited Fairfax where our daughter, her husband, children (ages 8, 6, and 4), and the family cat live. We cannot stay with them due to serious pet allergies. Because of that, I checked with the owner about whether pets had ever been in the house; she promptly reported back that there would be no triggers. She was 100% correct; I even noticed a Miele vacuum cleaner which is the top of the line for fighting allergy issues! [To VRBO and Home Away, “No Pets” means you cannot bring YOUR pets to the property; it does NOT mean the property is pet-free.]

Upon arriving in VA with a uHaul trailer we had pulled from Texas, we were DELIGHTED to see that the house is on a deep lot with a long driveway and so much black-topped parking, we did not have to hurry to drop it off. It was easy to turn the rig around in the ample, well-kept yard, and it stayed there two days without any problem whatsoever. Though the property faces a well-traveled road, we were secluded and yet, close to everything.

I didn’t even anticipate how blessed we were going to be by a single-story home! Almost all homes and attractions in the area involve either lots of stairs or steep climbs; our knees sighed in relief when we returned to the house each day. Along the same line, my husband who is quite tall chose the bathroom where a higher counter required less bending

On past visits, we have had to strictly limit the time we spent inside our daughter’s house and/or be confined to the deck area. Staying at a motel was not much better; entertaining three children and four adults in a hotel room is less than satisfactory. We have enjoyed one local bed and breakfast but in addition to its steep stairs, there are no areas available to us for being with our family.

It irritates me to pay a cleaning fee and then find a list of chores which must be done before leaving the property. Here, we were only asked to put the used towels in the laundry room.

At the Nation’s Capital Cottage, we knew we were not bothering anyone no matter how late we played Scrabble, etc. We felt safe because of ample automatic outside lighting. Everything we needed was there (including soft toilet paper!) as well as extras like a checkers game played on a rug on the floor, a very nice basketball goal, several portable oil filled heaters, a desk-top computer with super internet, etc. We will definitely be returning to this property!

Went DC to visit former Canadians who live in Haymarket. This wonderful cottage is located between DC and Haymarket, allowed for an awesome visit. It was clean, neat and tidy! Very well looked after! Excellent location close to airport, shopping and Metro. Highly recommended!

A wonderful place to relax and feel right at home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I were coming from across the country and my parents from PA for a family event. My mom and I got to the house first, and all we could say was "This is just perfect!"

The house was very clean, well laid out and inviting. It was easy to get to and we loved the parking in the back so that it was very simple to bring everything in and out.

We would absolutely stay again and give it a bug thumbs up!
