My wife and I purchased this property shortly after we were married. Because of my work in DC, the proximity and benefits of the surrounding area kept us there for several years. Our first child was born there (Ashley - thus the name Ashley's GetAway). With a change in jobs - along with a growing family - we decided to keep the property and make it available for others who would enjoy it as much as we have.

Jon Tripp purchased this townhome in 2002

The value you get when you stay at Ashley's GetAway is the #1 reason why you should reserve some time here. You simply cannot find anything close to what you will get here for the price.

A hotel might get you 350 square feet with parking a block away - and then you might need 2-3 separate rooms (cha-ching) to accommodate your group. Here you will get 2,000 square feet with parking and the amenities you are accustomed to enjoying each day.

Read the reviews and see why I have had so many happy guests. I promise you'll be happy you reserved here.

This property is amazingly well-located near downtown Washington, DC. With abundant transportation options, you are able to enjoy both the sites of the city and the amazing scenes in the Northern Virginia and Maryland.

There's a Metro stop on the Yellow Line (Huntington) just 1 mile away, a bus stop steps away from the front door and a major commuting arteries right into the city (Rt 1, George Washington Parkway).

We appreciated the warm welcome and the comfortable surroundings. The SmartCard for the Metro parking lot was very much appreciated as well. All in all we found the house conveniently located, roomy and a great place to relax after a long day of touring.

I would highly recommend Ashley's Getaway. It really is a nice condo and located in a great place. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Great trip

We had a great experience during our stay. Everything was clean and in place, even though the iron was hiding from me at first. A quick text to the manager and all our questions were answered in a timely fashion. Many restaurants nearby, some within walking distance. Walmart and Target nearby for groceries or last minute items you forgot. The metro was a little too far to walk to (with children and parents in tow) but was the best source of transportation for our sightseeing and my conference arrivals while there (metro stop right at the conference center without changing lines.)

My only complaint was there needed to be more towels/washcloths than just one set per bathroom so that we did not have to be diligent to wash them everyday on the way out. And deck furniture would have been nice too due to the great evening temps to sit outside but with little kids, we wouldn't have been sitting long anyway. My parents would have liked to have a tv in their bedroom, but that's a personal preference as well. There was one in the master BR as well as both dens. The garage was a little small as our SUV didn't fit, but was a perfect fit for my parents car. If we were to ever go back to DC, we would definitely consider this rental again.

There was plenty of room for the 7 of us (4 adults, 3 kids) with more room on the bottom floor for the air mattress furnished as well(which we didn't use but was a great idea to have available to renters, as well as the pack and play, baby gates, and high chair.) Plenty of books and videos and games and a few toys available as well. All in all, it was a great home away from home.

Worked great for us

I've rented from VRBO quite often, and working with Jon was by far one of my best experiences. From reservation to check-out, it was speedy, succinct, and hassle free. He always responded to any questions very quickly and when we had problems with the TV once we arrived, he was readily available via phone to help us out.

The accommodations worked well for 5 people - and the condo could easily handle more. There are a lot of steps - it's 4 levels, but that wasn't a problem for us. There are plenty of eating places and shops close by (Walmart, Applebees, Panda Express - just to name a few). The condo was clean and comfortable.

Some of our party had a car - so they appreciated the garage. If you aren't a walker and don't have a car, it might be a little tough for you, although I think there is a bus that can get you to the metro - we never tried it though. All-in-all a good experience for us.

DC Family Vacation

  • Review Submitted: 09-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
The condo accommodated our multi-generational family perfectly. It was in very good condition, tastefully decorated and had all we needed. It was also very convenient to the Metro and to local restaurants and grocery shopping and driving to Mt. Vernon was a breeze. The only concern could be the many stairs. While we had no problems with the stairs and liked the privacy the different levels afforded us, some vacationers may not be able to easily maneuver the 3 sets of stairs. The condo is basically on 4 levels.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback on Ashley's GetAway. Ahhhh, the stairs. In lieu of a workout facility, we put the stairs in to provide the calf and cardiovascular workout. Seriously, you are right in that it may be a challenge for those with bad knees, hips, or anyone recovering from a surgery.

I do appreciate you highlighting so many of the positive features -- its proximity to Metro, local offerings, house decor, etc. I know your feedback is important in helping others understand what this home offers as they make their reservation plans. Please make plans to come again soon.
