“Alan graciously offered his beautiful home to me for an extended period of time during the covid19 pandemic. I am a nurse at a nearby hospital and felt uneasy staying in my home. He was responsive and generous, allowing me to extend several times while giving me a very affordable price. The apartment was a great home away from home for two months and had everything I needed in order to be comfortable. The fireplace was my favorite part— I spent a lot of time just reading in front of it which allowed me to escape the realities of a strange world around me. The upstairs neighbors were friendly and welcoming. The patio was also a wonderful added bonus! Even though most things were closed, the apartment was in a great location as well! I walked to the mall, Capitol Hill or Meridian Hill on my off days for some fresh air and exercise. I imagine this being the perfect location with all the restaurants and bars within several blocks. If I ever needed a place to stay in DC, this will without a doubt be my go-to Airbnb! I will recommend to all my out of town friends who visit DC!”
After a well rested night in the luxurious bed, plan your day in this bright and comfy apartment located on a townhouse’s lower level. A built-in bench gives way to a dining nook comfortably seating four, and a private entrance provides easy access.
“Y’all, this was probably one of my best AirBNB stays. I came into town later in the day and was so scared about the response rate. Well that was no issue. I was so excited to be staying in my old neighborhood! The place definitely felt like home and had everything a person could need. Quiet and slightly secluded. I would definitely stay again.”
Beautifully decorated and spacious home in a charming, Alexandria neighborhood near the King Street metro and the shops and restaurants of Old Town. Just a 16 minute drive to downtown Washington DC, with a chef's kitchen and a relaxing great room. The house is also just a 10 minute drive to the new MGM Casino or the Gaylord Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor. The "no parties in house" rule is strictly followed. If you want to have a party, this is not the place for you.
“Staying at Robert's house was one of the best experiences i've had. The house definitely had the personality of the host, who put awesome touches on the property. From the outside, it looks like a normal one story house, but once entering the house, it feels like a completely custom designed house that you will mostly see in the house shows on TV. It was indeed a pleasure to spend a night at this place enjoying the meals at the amazing terrace (with a nice view as well) and read through Robert's big collection of books in the library. Looking forward to another relaxing vacation at Robert's house in the future.”
