Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This home was the perfect place for my family during our stay in northern Virginia while visiting my sister and mom.

Excellent location as described - just a few blocks walk to Del Ray's Mount Vernon with great shopping (my 5 year old daughter's favorite is the Purple Goose) and a variety of excellent coffee shops, restaurants, and other tasty treats (the daughter's favorite is The Dairy Godmother). Its also a short 5 minutes to Old Town which has a Metro stop for quick access into DC.

The house is located on a quiet street and while parking is on the street we never had a problem parking close by. The interior is bright and spacious. A comfortable living room and adjacent dining area. The kitchen is well equipped and leads to the back deck and lovely manicured garden, lit by tiny white lights and includes a fire pit. The gas grill in back is also a nice addition if you want to enjoy a barbecue.

Del Ray is an awesome neighborhood - it would be my top choice...

Thanks so much for this kind review. It was really nice having you--the perfect guests.

About the neighborhood
Del Ray's slogan is 'Where main street still exists.' Its a very hip, friendly, walkable community. Along Mt. Vernon Avenue (a block away) you will find a plethora of restaurants, coffee shops, and boutique shops. Take a yoga, hot yoga, or Pilates class (www.mindthemat.com). Bring home nice meats from the local butcher shop (http://www.letsmeatontheavenue.com) or fancy cheese from the local gourmet cheese shop (www.cheesetique.com). A lively farmer's market from May through October. Walk to small grocery store, 7-11, and CVS. One mile to Braddock Road Metro station with easy access to Washington, D.C. and all that the city has to offer. Bring your bikes or running shoes and hit the Mount Vernon Trail along the Potomac River. There is so much to see and do.
