Walk Everywhere in Old Town Alexandria

This Airbnb is located on King Street, truly in the heart of Old Town Alexandria.  It is within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to visit in the area.  From this Airbnb, it is less than a 10 minute walk down to the waterfront and to many other restaurants and shops in the area.  It was so nice to just be able to walk out of our Airbnb and get to all the places we wanted to be without the hassle of a car.  And if you don’t want to walk, there is a free King Street Trolley you can take too.  One of our favorite restaurants, Taverna Cretekou (authentic Greek restaurant), we visited here is actually located just below the apartment, right out the front or back door.

Comfortable Space

The space here was really nice and large.  For less than the price of most small hotel rooms in the area, we were able to have a large living area, kitchen and master bedroom/bath at this Airbnb.  This space was able to accommodate 3 adults (Sam, Natalie and Grandma) and 1 baby (14-month-old) very comfortably.  There is a master bedroom with a queen bed here and then a twin sofa bed in the living room.  You could likely fit one more adult in here if you wanted to but we would recommend this apartment for a family with 3 or less adults for the most comfortable experience.   This place also has a washer and dryer which is a HUGE win when traveling with a very cute, yet messy, baby. 

Note: If you are room sharing with a baby here (like we did), we do recommend using the SlumberPod for the best experience.  The bathroom is located through the bedroom and without it, you may feel like you can’t access the bathroom while your baby is sleeping.  The SlumberPod allowed us to room share with the baby and all get sleep.  It was also nice to not have to worry about using the bathroom while our baby was napping or sleeping.  Use ALWAYSHAVEATRIPPLANNED$20 for $20 off your SlumberPod order today.

Unique Antique Decorations 

This apartment has some really unique antique decorations and wall hangings from the middle of the 20th century.  Our favorite decor was the old movie chair seats in the hallway.  We got to chat with one of the hosts, Boyd, and he gave us a run-down on the antique decorations in the apartment and it was really cool to hear their history.  The decorations here really added another fun layer to our stay.

Great Host and Hostess 

Tessa and Boyd were fantastic at communicating with us and so accommodating for our stay. They allowed us to check-in early and check-out late, which was very helpful, especially while traveling with what felt like everything but the kitchen sink.  Tessa and Boyd allow you your space but are available for any questions you may have about your stay at the place or visiting the area.
