Beautiful, peaceful, safe area Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house was just down from the metro into DC. Quite safe area, easy in, easy out. The homeowner was very sweet. The house is large and very comfortable. Excellent value for the amount of space. Grocery store, gas station and restaurants right down the street. We left daily about 9:30 am to miss ALL the traffic. Thank you for a wonderful stay. This was our 1st rental with VRBO and definitely will not be our last. This home is highly recommended.

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was far better than getting a hotel in town. It was about 25 minutes out from Arlington. Really nice place. Take advantage of the extra blankets - the downstairs stays a lot warmer than the upstairs.

Overall nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in this nice home for 5 nights last summer while visiting DC. There were 5 of us. Convenient having the bus stop a block away which took us to the Orange line about a five minute bus ride away. Grocery store, Domino's pizza & a Subway sandwich shop a handful of blocks away. There is a tenant in the basement with a separate entry that we could hear in the evenings but wasn't really an issue. Took approx. an hour each way to get in and out of DC with using the bus & subway but worked fine. House was very charming, clean and in a very nice, safe neighborhood. This home made our visit very memorable and we're pleased we chose it.

Very nice home

  • 4 of 5

Location and accommodation was perfect for our family (6 adults). The cottage was clean and very well kept. We were in the Fairfax Virginia Area for a family wedding and the house worked well for my wife and I, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, niece and her fiancé. The house is close to Washington's National Airport, Arlington, and Washington DC attractions. There is plenty of shopping (Merrifield and Tysons Corner) nearby and othere is a Metro Station at Tysons Corner. We would stay again should have a need to go to the DC Area.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, 30 minutes drive to DC, noticed a bus stop in walking distance but we did not try it. Orange line happened in maintainance during our stay, a little inconvenience, but manageable since I could drive in the city to pick my families up. The house location was very good, close enough to get on rt 66 highway quickly, but still quiet once getting off the road. There are both American grocery stores and Chinese grocery stores close by, house has some basic utensils to cook simple foods, though most of the pots are old. There was no detergent in the house, but we managed to buy a bottle from the near by Safeway store, still able to wash the cloths. Felt a little sorry for the owner since she had to live in the basement when we occupied the house. Overall very good experience staying in the house for 3 nights. Would recommend to others, and will definitely come back next time visiting DC area.
