    Nice Neighborhood

    A small tagline

    Massive backyard. Hottub. Nice neighbors. As funky as we are, we know that at the end of the day, all things epic have their grounding in a pleasant life.

     

    We're near a park, swimming pool, and Starbucks. We have quiet hours and business grade wifi. We have jobs, boyfriends, and girlfriends. We look normal enough to get by in this material world, while inside, caring about something far deeper.

  • A Year at Alexandria

    Take a look and enjoy!

    Last year's Community Snapshot

    Last year we went out to a Burlesque show on Halloween in SF, traveled into the mountains to camp and hike, held holiday potluck feasts, and AcroYoga'd all over the house.

     

    The name "Alexandria" comes from the original Library of Alexandria, a place where world travelers and leaders came to meet and learn, a storehouse of sacred knowledge, and an oasis of culture to expand and enlighten the minds and hearts of all who enter.
