Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday townhome in Shaw - 403

Town home, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bath, Sleeps 10

A10 minutes walk takes you to the Mount Vernon Metro Station and to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. A 30 minutes walk takes you to The White House, The US Capitol, The National Mall and the museums. The city's largest grocery store (Giant Foods) is about a 10 minutes walk on P street.

This house has 4 bedrooms with 3 king beds and 2 twin beds, a pullout sofa in the living room and can accommodate 10 comfortably. (If your group is larger then 10 you can also rent the first level apartment which is a 2 bedroom,2 bath accommodating 6 more. To view the lower apartment please click on this link: www.vrbo.com/446939 ). The living room with the pullout sofa can be separated with pocket doors and turns into a bedroom. 3 full bathrooms, one on the first floor adding to the convenience and the other 2 are on the second floor close to the bedrooms, with the master bath including a jet tub. A full kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a Viking Range provides everything you need to cook for your family and friends. The large dining room can seat 14 and has a warm and charming ambiance for those family dinners. This is an old mansion from a century ago updated and refurbished to the most modern style while keeping the old charm. The gas light fixtures (not a functioning system for safety reasons) and the antique and functioning Intercom system have been preserved. Wide staircase, hardwood floors in the entire house and a magnificent trim work all through the house give a sense of how the upper classes used to live in DC. The back porch has lights and a fan to keep cool in the summer overlooking the stone patio and the carriage house.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only

About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Allen chose Shaw

This is a unique apartment. We gutted out the old house and redid the entire house including the lower floor. Everything you see here is less than a year old and it is designed with great care, taste and quality.

Amazing!

  • 5 out of 5
This appartment exceeded our expectations. The appartment was simply stunning, exactly as in the photos on the website. It was clean, spacious and a great location. the appartment was well catered for down to a bottle opener. Allan was a charming host, very helpful and we all enjoyed our conversations with him. There was 6 of us staying there and we could not have been happier. We would highly recommend Allan's place to anyone wanting to stay in dc. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks again allan.

Excellent stay in DC

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was wonderful for our nine guest during a week's vacation in august. The Kitchen was well stocked and allowed us to prepare our meals. The location was close enough to the convention center so that we could walk there in 15 mins. A awesome grocery story is 2.5 block away (Giant grocery story on P street). There was a starbucks next to the Giant so coffee in the morning was very convenient. We rented a a car and parked on 4th street about 75 yards from the home. Parking is free on 4th street but you have to watch out for street cleaning on wed and thu morning on the two sides of the street on 4th street. with some thoughtful planning you can switch sides during the cleaning and have a place to park during your whole stay at the apartment. the laundry facilities were excellent so we were able to do wash multiple times during our stay. The beds were quite comfortable and the apartment throughout has been tastefully renovated. we were very comfortable during our stay. Allen (the owner) was very responsive to all our questions and request during our stay. We actually ended up using Uber (app you can download on your smart phone to order transportation) for getting around to all the sights during our stay. if i had to do it again, i probably would not rent a car and just use uber to get around everywhere. the ride came to the apartment in less than 5 mins everyday during the week of our stay. the location of the apartment is excellent. we felt we could get to everything very easily (groceries, sights, coffee, convention center etc). We were very satisfied with our stay overall and would come again if we are in the DC area.

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 out of 5
Home away from Homes! is the best reccomendation I can give this house. We recently stayed one week to celebrate my daughter’s graduation. We were a party of 9, ages 3-67, and we were all very comfortable. The previous reviews are very accurate and helpful, too.

We hosted 2 parties of almost 20 people each time; mostly catered from Whole Foods, but the kitchen was well equipped to cook and serve. We added some disposables for easier clean-up. It was fabulous to be able to celebrate like we would at home.

A note about the stairs-- none of us live in two story homes, but the stairs and railing are solid,-- ‘slow and steady’-- worked!

Parking was fine, one street over. We mailnly used buses, stops were less than one block in a couple of directions. We used an iPhone trasit app that made it even easier.
A walk to the Hampton Inn and we found an outstanding cab/town car service that we used several times, including our trip to DCA at the end of our stay.

Walking to grocery stores was easy, too. Take the provided bags and cart!

The house meet all our needs, to say the least. The 3 king bedrooms and 1 twin upstairs with 2 baths are good sized; with plenty of linens and towels. The downstairs was great for entertaining and comfortable for visiting. We loved the house.

We had no problems, so we did not need to contact Allen. But prior to our visit he was easily accessible, helpful and friendly; an impeccable host and businessman. Our deposit was issued promptly.

Great Place to Host Family

  • 5 out of 5
We truly appreciated this location and the great accomodating service from the owner, Alan. Our family was gathering for our daughter's wedding. We had mostly people in their senior years, and even though there are stairs into the home and within, all were able to navigate it well. We so appreciated the comfortable beds and plentiful bathrooms, as well as large areas to dine and visit. I love cooking and this was a fun kitchen to work in! I did have a little difficulty with the corner sink, but not a huge issue.
We also had an issue with the ice maker, but Alan was EXTREMELY ATTENTIVE, and that is what you want. As homeowners, we all know stuff happens, but his personal service was outstanding.
The photos do reflect the home, but they are a few things that are beginning to show wear from loving use.
Other people have commented on the sounds in the neighborhood of sirens. This is true, but it was not an issue in our sleeping or comfort. Our family was able to use public transportation to arrive from the airport and to experience DC. The senior members also used cabs with no difficulty.
Overall it was a great place with unique historical aspects, mixed with great modern ammenities!
As a side the Giant Grocery Store at O St MARKET is wonderful for all your shopping needs. The owner also provides a shopping cart which is a great help. Note DC charges for grocery bags, so bring them from the house.

Beautiful home for our girls getaway!

  • 4 out of 5
We arrived to find the home in good order and the lock box with the keys to the house worked perfectly. Pictures accurately depict the home but there is some wear and tear since the photos were taken but the home is beautiful! Rooms were large and fit our party of 5 perfectly. There were no TV's in any of the bedrooms which we missed having but we survived! The stairs are quite steep and narrow so I would not recommend this for families with toddlers or those who have problems with stairs.
Communication between the owner was great and we did not have any problems, so we didn't need to contact him for any reason. Please note that there is a fire station and hospital nearby and the associated noise should be expected -- There was also construction on both sides of the house during our stay but most mornings we were up anyway before the noises became to loud and I would not expect this to be a permanent problem.
We used the bus quite a bit to get around as well as cabs, and found that it was not too difficult to get where we wanted to go. If we wanted to walk to the metro we felt safe in the neighborhood to do so.
All in all, a great experience for us !
