Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Perfectly Situated Close To DC north of Del Ray

Summary: Perfect space for long or short term stays. Two queen beds and two queen sleeper sofas; outdoor screened in porch, organic garden; off-street parking for 2 (or 3 Minis); wi-fi and cable TV, and pet friendly. Close to tons of public transit.

Our house is in the Arlandria (Arlington/Alexandria border) area known as Chirilagua or North Del Ray. Relatively close to two metro stations it is surrounded by cute (Del Ray - great local music, local delicatessens and delicious El Salvadorean food!), essential (Potomac Yards- what's better than an evening stroll to the movie theater and grocery shopping?) and fashionable (Crystal City with its own ice skating rink and mall). We are nestled between multiple bus and trolley-lines and are within easy biking distance (we are right on 400 miles of bike trails that can take you anywhere you want to go) into the the heart of the District, the Orange line corridor and Old Town Alexandria.

Both rooms have queen beds. The master has reading area, a walk in shower and dual sink bathroom while the 2nd bedroom is a cozy multi-use room with a bathroom across the hall. Full access kitchen with gas stove. Enclosed deck with open back patio area with fire pit.

We host animals but the 2nd room has been kept allergen/pet free and the majority of the house has wood floors to reduce potential issues.

Off-street parking for two cars (and potentially three if you angle things correctly!)

Pretty much perfect.

About Ryan Wismer

We are University of Tulsa and Texas A&M University grads who currently live in Alexandria. We are two Texans who have been lured to the DC area by the wonderful city, great people, and booming economy. Ryan is an international development professional and Emily is a policy outreach expert who enjoys meeting new people as we travel, rock climb, cycle, board game and generally explore the world. We hope to soon get to (or back to) India, Patagonia, Croatia, and Hawaii, and are always open to suggestions on where to stay! :)

Ryan Wismer purchased this house in 2011

Why Ryan Wismer chose World

We bought this home because of our deep involvement in the local community of Chirilagua, the fun of being able to easily walk to so many great locations within Del Ray and north Alexandria and the access to great public transportation. I use the metro or bike into downtown DC for work everyday and our location makes it a relatively stress free commute or easy bike ride to any of the major work or play hubs.

cozy and warm

  • 4 of 5

Emily and Ryan's home is quite warm, cozy and overall well maintained...the beds were so comfortable, which is the most important element We were able to use the kitchen easily for our needs and most amenities were available for our use. There were some snags during our stay, but the owners quickly responded and resolved those issues. They made our stay so welcoming that I would gladly return with my children. The only downside of this beautiful home is the neighborhood which appears to be dilapidated, rundown and made me immediately worry about our safety. Walking around at night is not recommended. However, we had zero problems.

Just Right...

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my family. Beautiful home, comfortable and nicely decorated. Everything, including DC, was just an Uber away. It had a fenced in yard for my 'kids.' We would definitely recommend this place and would rent again if the situation should arise. We booked quite last minute and Ryan was quick to respond. Thank you for letting us stay in your home!
