fully furnished, ideally located 1br1ba condo in Alexandria, VA, starting mid-August 2019

Our home is located in Alexandria, recently name "No.1 US travel destination" (https://wtop.com/alexandria/2018/03/alexandria-named-no-1-us-travel-destination/). It's at the heart of the fabulous Rosemont Neighborhood (between Old Town and Del Ray, within walking distance to each), right across the street from the beloved wine shop and restaurant Grape & Bean (see http://www.thegoodhartgroup.com/top-10-rosemont/).

Our condo is on the mid-level of a 3-level colonial style complex. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The condo itself is spacious and very well lit. It's conveniently located -- 7 minutes of walk to the nearest metro stop (King St. Metro, on Blue and Yellow lines), 10 minutes of walk to Whole Foods and 20 minutes to Trader Joe's, Harris Teeter, and Aldi's, 8 minutes of walk to the Old Town, and under 30 minutes of walk to Del Ray (another chic neighborhood with great restaurants and interesting shops). If you are a biker, there is a Metro bike rental station across the street from our building and there are designated bike lanes everywhere. (We live a car-free life.)

If you do have a car, there is off-street parking with 3hr limit between 9am and 5pm from Monday through Friday, and without limits on weekends and holidays. Parking spots are plenty in the neighborhood, since a lot of us don't have a car and take the metro to work instead. There is also unlimited parking at all times one short block away.

There is a private deck attached to the condo, which is accessible through the kitchen. It's on the quiet and private side of the building. You can hear birds singing in the background when you have your morning coffee there.

We are renting the condo out as fully furnished and fully equipped. (There are high-functioning and energy-efficient front-loading washer and dryer in the unit, in case you wonder.) We are looking for responsible professionals as potential tenants. (The condo is ideal for 1-2 people. A small child can be comfortably accommodated too. Extra fees will be charged for the extended stay of another person age 10 and above, $20/night beyond 5 nights.) The lease can begin as early as mid-August, 2019.

As part of the application, we will ask for two written references, from your current employer/university and your most recent landlord, respectively.

The rent includes water, garbage collection, and gas & electricity up to $50/month (with the gas & electricity bills combined). The place is wireless ready, but you'll have to pay for the basic internet connection (currently around $50/month).

The security deposit is $800. Half of that amount is due upon the lease signing. The other half is due with the 1st month's rent, which is due upon receiving the keys to the property. The deposit is fully refundable at the end of the lease.
