Relax in my Traveler’s Oasis! From the moment you arrive at this whimsical 3-story townhouse, you’ll love the homey vibe & amenities. Easy walking distance to the metro plus King Street restaurants & shops.

Digital nomads can easily work from here & bring your furry friends too! Enjoy a family vacation, a couple's weekend getaway, or a business trip in the historic Old Town neighborhood of Alexandria. You're just across the river from Washington DC yet in a safe spot away from the city hustle.

** I'm open to long-term stays and willing to work with guests on required dates. I will ask that you sign a rental agreement for stays longer than 30 days due to local regulations. Send me an inquiry and I'm happy to work with you. **

My location is a Walker’s Paradise! It has a Walkability score of 95 (out of 100), a Transit Score of 75, and a Bike Score of 85. During your stay, you’ll especially love that you can:

• Walk less than 2 minutes to the King Street metro (blue and yellow lines)
• Walk or ride the free trolley shuttle to nearby restaurants and shops on King Street
• Easily access National Airport (DCA), the Capital Beltway, or downtown DC

Main Floor: Living Room with Smart TV, Dining Room, Kitchen, Back door access to private fenced backyard. Dog leashes, bowls, and a blanket are provided.

Step through the front door directly into the main living area and you’ll immediately notice how comfortable you’ll be as you relax in the cozy and inviting living room.

• Watch your favorite shows on the 65” Roku TV
• Take an afternoon nap on the couch
• Unwind with a drink in the evening
• The couch pulls out into a full-size bed. It comfortably sleeps one adult or two kids.

Smart TV: I provide access to live TV on the YouTubeTV service. Use your personal login & password to access your favorite Netflix, Prime, or Hulu shows and movies. Tons of other streaming apps are also available for you or your family to enjoy.

As you walk into the kitchen and dining area, you can enjoy a quiet dinner cooked at home or delivered from one of our many neighborhood restaurants. On Saturdays, visit the local Farmer’s Market 20 minutes away and pick up your favorite fresh produce. The kitchen and dining area features:

• Coffee maker and French press
• Cuisinart toaster oven
• Dishwasher
• Dining table with seating for 4 people
• Fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook meals at home, including dishes, silverware, glasses, oil/seasonings/spices, and pots and pans you’ll actually want to use.

2nd Floor: 1 Bedroom (Queen Bed), Full Bathroom, 2 dedicated working desk areas with a laser printer

Basement: 1 Bedroom (Queen Bed), Full Bathroom, Washer & Dryer

After a busy day touring DC or the many activities of Northern Virginia, sink into bed and fall asleep in the quiet and restful bedrooms. Both bedrooms offer features you’ll love:

• Memory foam queen-size mattresses
• Storage space for your clothes
• Bedside lamps with USB ports
• Cozy duvets to snuggle under

Relax in the deep tub suitable for soaking in the upstairs bathroom or luxuriate in the full standing shower downstairs. In addition to body wash, shampoo, and conditioner, both bathrooms offer a generous supply of free items that you may have forgotten to pack -- toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, and more.

Enjoy the convenience of a full-size washer and dryer on-site along with detergent and stain remover. I also provide an iron, ironing board, and clothes steamer for keeping your clothes crisp and wrinkle-free, whether for a special evening out or an important business meeting.

Inside the Home: There are stairs and a handrail that lead up to the second floor and down to the basement.

Outdoor Areas:
You have full access to the private backyard where you’ll enjoy lounging on the patio chairs or having a meal al fresco.

When the weather heats up, cool off in the Old Town outdoor pool, which is located out the back gate and a block away. A daily admission fee of $6 per person will be charged by the facility.

Neighborhood Highlights:
Take advantage of easy access to the surrounding neighborhood and DC:
• Multitude of restaurants and all cuisines
• Water taxi to DC and National Harbor, plus the Baseball Boat when the Nationals are playing at home
• Quick access to highways leading to Northern Virginia

While I am pet-friendly, I allow dogs and cats only and a maximum of 2 pets total. I do charge an extra pet fee of $50 per stay to cover additional cleaning measures. I have no size or breed restrictions.

Things to be aware of:

• Front Door Entrance: Three concrete steps leading up to the front door with a smart lock keypad.
• Blink Camera: Located on the front door. All audio recording is turned off on the device. No monitoring devices inside the home.
• All areas in the house are available to guests except for the owner's closet in the upstairs hallway.
• The house is located near the above-ground metro and Amtrak train station. While this makes those transit choices convenient, it also comes with some associated noise: the light rumble of the metro trains on the elevated tracks, and the occasional sound of a train horn. However, we have never experienced any issues with excessive noise inside the townhouse. For instance, it does not affect your ability to have a conversation or watch TV. The metro trains do not run after midnight (2am on weekends) and the Amtrak and commuter trains are infrequent. I also provide earplugs and white noise machines in the bedrooms for light sleepers.

Whether you’re from the States or across the globe, my home is a safe space for folks from all minority and marginalized groups. I am a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and I welcome guests of all races, faiths, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
