There are a few simple rules. Please, no parties or pets. no eating in bed which has been a problem, glasses must have coasters unless they are on a glass-topped table, and be mindful that you are very close to your neighbors in this townhouse setting. That means please be reasonably quiet on the patio and going in and out, particularly in the evenings.
There are few rules. No guests beyond the 6 maximum. No gatherings or parties beyond the listed rentees, no standing on the cane dining room chairs for any reason, no food or drinks on the antique harpsichord, and coasters under all glasses that aren't on a glass-topped surface. There are coasters in the dining room buffet. No eating in bed which has been an ongoing issue with the linens. Bag all trash for the trash cans. Not suitable for small children because there are stairs everywhere. Quiet outside on the patio for benefit of the neighbors and when coming and going. Aside from that, you're ready to enjoy yourselves!
I spent 27 years as the wife of a U.S. diplomat and raised my children on four continents. I bought the Alexandria home in 2010 after my husband died and just after the house had been totally taken down to the studs for renovation. I spend time both in Central Virginia as the wife of a retired University of Virginia professor and Alexandria where most of my Foreign Service friends still live. We both love to travel and meet new friends and are happy to introduce them to Old Town Alexandria, a totally charming colonial town on the Potomac with sought-after, 15 minute access to the delights of Washington D.C.
