My place is in the heart of DC, set in a funky & historic neighborhood, w/ easy access to famous landmarks & excellent restaurants, museums and shops. You’ll love my place because of the open layout, the large private patio, the high ceilings, and the luxurious yet cosy accommodations.

The space

This 1200 square foot 2 story condo feels just like a DC row home, maintaining character without sacrificing any modern amenities. The row home was completely gutted and rebuilt in 2014 into two condos, to include this space. There is a large (25 x 20 ft) outdoor back patio with a grill and fantastic outdoor furniture. The first floor is an open layout with the dining room, kitchen and living room all one open area. There is also a half bath on the main level.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. One has a bathtub and shower; the other has a shower with a bench. The back bedroom has a balcony overlooking the back patio.

Guest access

Laundry, patio, kitchen, etc.

Alexandra’s house was as quaint and cute as the couple who hosted me. From the moment I arrived with a personal tour of the perfectly clean apartment it felt like home. In the evening I made tea and sat at the oversized island to relax and read one of the best book collections I have ever seen. I would welcome an opportunity to stay here again. 5 stars all around.

Great place and perfect host. I paid too much because my friends arrived late and was refunded the money immediately without asking. The house is beautiful and comfortable. Everything was perfect.

Alexandra's place was gorgeous and the pictures online don't do it justice. The private patio is also a HUGE plus. The space was extremely clean/tidy and Alexandra made sure that we were checked in and comfortable. She was also very responsive and accommodating whenever I had questions. I was with a group of 6 and we had plenty of space to mingle with each other (2 floors) and sleep comfortably. The location of the apartment/condo was within walking distance from Howard and only a 10-15 minute Uber ride from downtown, the monuments and anywhere we needed to go during our stay. I'll definitely be looking to stay at Alexandra's place the next time I'm in D.C.!

My family and I had a great stay here. It was a quiet place to grill, have some dinner and relax after a long day touring the Capitol area. For convenience, we used Uber and Lyft to get where we we're going.

The area was beautiful, as was the home. Everything was clean and modern. It was only a short walk from public transport, and a short drive from downtown. If I'm in D.C. again, I will definitely be staying here!

Alexandra's place was modern and spacious enough for our group of 6. We loved the location (near Howard and easy to get around using Uber/Lyft). Very comfy beds made for some happy and well-rested friends. It was easy to communicate with Alexandra and she was very helpful and responsive. Would definitely stay here again!

I'm a responsible and fun-loving D.C. native who loves to travel, but also loves to be at home. Reading, exploring, and spending time with my amazing family are some of my favorite things to do. Whether it's in the mountains or on the ocean, at home or abroad, I treasure each and every place I visit, and all of the wonderful people I meet.

I look forward to welcoming you into my home, visiting yours, and will be a very respectful and hospitable host and guest.
