About Betty Mallon--- bmallon@mcenearney.com

My husband and I are native Alexandrians and have owned this home for many years. We purchased it so my mother could move from her 3 story townhouse to one level living. She enjoyed many years there before moving in with my sister.

Recently we decided it was the perfect spot for vacationers as it is in a wonderful, quiet community; yet is within walking distance of everything.

I actually grew up in the neighborhood, attended the local elementary school and now our grandson is attending the same school.

We live just a short 5 minute drive from the house and can make ourselves available if there is a problem.

Betty Mallon--- bmallon@mcenearney.com purchased this bungalow in 1988

Why Betty Mallon--- bmallon@mcenearney.com chose Alexandria

I know how many people visit the Washington DC area each year, and I wanted to provide a more home-like setting for people who don't like the bustle of hotels. Old Town Alexandria and Del Ray are right on the doorstep of this cute bungalow, and with DC just a short distance away, I thought it was the perfect pied a terre!

What makes this bungalow unique

This is a single family detached home so you don't have go worry about your noise level of coming or going as there is no unit above, below or beside you. You have your own washer and dryer and yard to use for outdoor grilling and dining. There is plenty of room to stretch out in this little home, and the privacy it affords, allows visitors to really 'live' in the DC area. Walking to shops and restaurants, theater, boating, metro and the like are just the icing on the cake.

A quiet gem in the city

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming bungalow on a quiet street. My husband and I stayed here for four nights while visiting family members that live in Alexandria. We were very close to two Metro stations and walked to them for our sightseeing trips into DC. We walked to Del Ray daily to enjoy ice cream at the Dairy Godmother. We very rarely had to get into our car to go anywhere. The home is very clean and comfortable. The backyard is a wonderful spot to enjoy your morning coffee or to read your book in the evening. The kitchen is very well equipped and has plenty of condiments too. Beds were comfy. Yes, the tub is deep, but no problems. Jim and Betty were very easy to work with, and if we are ever back in Alexandria, we would definitely stay here again!

4.5 stars home away from home

  • 4 of 5

It was nice & bigger than expected. Very quiet, charming & comfortable. Loved listening to all the birds. Perfect location for all that we did. Only complaint was on two different occasions sales people showed up. Other than that we loved it. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. We were in town for a wedding in Alexandria and decided to extend our trip to 'tourist' DC with our kids. The house was very comfortable. Much better than being couped up in a hotel room. My kids are 10 and 11 and need their space to chill and play. Walking distance to a small convenient store (2 blocks). Walgreens and a great bakery / biestro was 4 blocks away. Friendly quiet neighborhood. It was perfect for us.

Comfy house with just a short Metro ride to DC.

  • 5 of 5

We and our 2 teenage boys had a great time. We used UBER to get to restaurants at night. Definitely recommend this house for a family vacation.

Super cute and very convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Joe thought of everything in this wonderful little house. Very convenient to Del Ray, Old Town and all the major highways to get into DC or around town. The parking was always a breeze and the house is very comfortable.

I'd go to DC often so am tempted to tell you not to stay here so it's available to me! ; )

There were only 2 of us and we had gobs of room - I'd feel quite comfortable with a whole family - or even 2 couples. The kitchen was well appointed. Everything you want for a weekend - or a week away!

Wonderful location, close to Old Town and a great place to walk or run.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the opportunity to stay together as a family, be able to eat breakfast or any other meals we wanted at "home." Cozy without being frilly. The only downside would be getting in and out of the tub for an older individual. It was fine for my husband and myself for unsafe for grandma.

Our Guest Cottage sits right between two very desirable parts of the historic City of Alexandria. Within a 15 to 20 minute walk, one can enjoy numerous, excellent restaurants, shops, antique stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, cleaners and two Metro stops. Movie theaters, malls, public tennis courts and community recreation center are all within a 10 minute drive.

From the Braddock Road Metro and the King Street Metro, you can be in Washington, DC, Arlington, VA or Maryland in just minutes. The Metro also takes you directly to Reagan National Airport.

The home sits on a quiet one-way residential street that has tons of free parking if you do have an automobile. There are two bedrooms and one bath. Built in 1926, the home's bath is fairly original with a deep, cast iron tub with a shower ring. Because of its depth, it can be somewhat of a challenge to anyone with mobility restrictions. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove, toaster oven, blender and microwave. There is no dishwasher however. Additionally, there is a gas grill for warm weather grilling. The washer and dryer are housed in the basement.

The house has a TV and has internet access as well. Enjoy all the historic sights of Alexandria, George Washington's Estate of Mt. Vernon, Woodlawn, Gunston Manor, Arlington Cemetery and the endless choices of free museums in Washington, DC.
