About Tim Bugh
Originally from Austin, TX, I've lived in CA, TX, VA, and Europe. I'm a senior energy analyst by day, and a vocalist with an argentine tango orchestra, dancing & singing tango by night. I enjoy hosting guests from all over the world who would like a relaxing peaceful getaway.
Tim Bugh purchased this House in 2012
Why Tim Bugh chose Aurora Highlands
My 1953 traditional Arlington VA house is a a blessing to me, allowing me and my guests to enjoy modern Arlington VA, old town Alexandria, and be just 11 minutes from Washington DC. I can enjoy what the greater DC metro-plex has to offer, while remaining safe & comfortable at night in this upscale neighborhood. I hope you will come here and enjoy it too!
What makes this House unique
I think you'll really like this peaceful upscale neighborhood, your own backyard and private entries, with hillside views. The woods behind my house provide peace & quiet, with the occasional wild animals like deer, woodchucks, squirrels, and a vast variety of birds that visit the area. Metro is just an 18 minute walk away. DCA Reagan airport is just 5 minutes away.

Small, clean & simple apartment
The place is mostly like pictured, although it looks a little bigger than it is. It's a walk-down basement apartment and as such you can hear everything above -all voices and steps. Bring your ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. The bed and pillows are relatively comfortable and there is tiny bathroom with sufficient hot water, but the water pressure is very weak. There's a small strip kitchen that is minimally supplied, where you can do very basic cooking/food prep. The neighborhood is essentially quiet residential, where you do hear air traffic from Reagan airport. Tim was polite and responsive to communication.
Viewers, please do check out my other reviews!
I humbly would propose to you that they are more honest and fair, I believe.
Mardi, that is an impressively critical review that does not coincide with any other people's reviews. Sounds like you got upset about my allowing your kids to stay for free, but having a little misunderstanding about that, as you hadn't registered them. Payback time, huh?
I'm sorry you had a tough time sleeping. Others have praised me on how quiet the apartment is. The bed and pillows I provide I have received so many compliments on! Yes, it's a small bedroom; however, you received a great price on a place that is over twice as big as a hotel room in the area, and even includes a small kitchen! Others have thanked me for having such a great place in a quiet neighborhood. I do wish you and your family many pleasant stays in other places.
Great location and great space!
We enjoyed our stay...very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect to our visit! Host communicated in a very timely manner and clear instructions and directions were given. Will stay again if in the area!

Well placed and full of amenities
We came into DC after a 10 hour flight delay exhausted and rattled. Our host had the place ready for us and everything was easy to find. Tim stayed in touch the entire time. We were overjoyed to be able to make a delicious cup of coffee in the morning. The apartment was a great size and very clean. We were able to park right in front. It’s well placed in a great neighborhood close to everything we needed. We were very comfortable and slept soundly.
Thanks so much, Lynn, for your great review! So glad you had an en enjoyable experience. And thanks so much for being great guests! We enjoyed hosting you, & please visit again! -Tim & Chrissy
