Come visit charming historic Old Town Alexandria! Waiting for you here at "Harley House" is a fully renovated, circa 1847 built, private apartment with your own off street front door entrance. We use Airbnb often throughout our worldwide travels so we understand what makes a comfortable stay.

The space
Lovely apartment in historic Old Town, Alexandria. This 1847 built, recently fully renovated English Basement apartment with your own off street front door entrance, has one large bedroom, super comfy Queen size bed, living room for relaxing, brand new private bathroom with walk in shower, and kitchenette. Kitchenette comes with sink, microwave, Keurig coffee machine, french press, toaster and mini refrigerator (leftovers from all the fabulous restaurants nearby). There is not a cooktop and oven. You'll also have your own washer and dryer.

Guest access
You'll have complete privacy and your own street front door entrance. I will be available to answer questions and assist to make your visit as pleasant as possible if you need, but also can leave you to enjoy your stay in total solitude. Please let me know if you'll have a car so I can get you a permit (no charge) for parking on my block (and surrounding Zone 3). Parking is easy, convenient and plentiful.

PLEASE NOTE for Coronavirus concerns: With the utmost care and concern for safety, between guests all hard surfaces are sanitized using medical grade disinfecting wipes (CaviWipes by Metrex). Airbnb commitment to properly cleaning with Covid-19 consideration pledge accepted. A full 24 hours between guests built in the calendar now too. I personally clean the space so I know it is done correctly and to my high standards. Please note how many guests comment on how clean it is - and that was before Covid-19 became our new reality.
When choosing between an Airbnb or a hotel for a visit to Old Town, consider that here you have 100% privacy and can be safely isolated if that is your preference, rather than having to be in the presence of other guests and staff in the lobby or hallways of a hotel.
