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 2013

Why Allen chose Kalorama

This house is located in the best part of DC. Near everything, The Zoo, metro, restaurants and downtown. It is a big house and has a deck and a carport right under it.

What makes this townhome unique

Half a block to metro, a block to the Zoo and restaurants.

Great location and space

  • 5 out of 5
This property is in a great location in DC, with easy access to the metro and walking distance to restaurants and shops. The home is lovely and exactly as pictured; the owner is attentive and responsive. It was a great choice!

Fantastic House, fantastic area!

  • 5 out of 5
We absolutely loved our time in Woodley Park.....the house was lovely, clean and spacious with everything one could need. Allan was always there if/when we needed him, very accommodating! Woodley Park itself is a perfect location and right next to groovy Adams Morgan. I highly recommend this property.

Great stay in DC

  • 5 out of 5
We packed the house with family for a wedding weekend and the house was perfect. Great location on a quiet street only a block away from the Metro. The house was very well-equipped for serving and even cooking. Plenty of room for everyone to gather or to get away from each other. The house does back on to an alley shared by a row of commercial places on Connecticut Ave. so the garbage trucks arrive early every morning - so don't put the light sleepers in the back bedrooms. But that's really just city living.

Several good restaurants in the area including the Lebanese Taverna. Sherry's Wine and Spirits around the corner had an amazing selection in a tiny, packed place. Lovely neighborhood surrounding. DuPont Circle is only one Metro stop away.

The little day bed is actually in a room attached to another BR and not just out in the open as it appears in the photos which was nice. Would love to have had at least one BR with twin beds instead of a queen. If you have a lot of singles rather than couples it gets a little tricky to sort everyone into a bed. But it's rare for these rental places to do that. And as with nearly all townhouses in DC there are a lot of steps - up to the front door, up to the bedrooms. So it is not going to work well for anyone with limited walking ability.

All in all a wonderful, stress-free stay. Everyone loved the house. And the wedding was great too!

Washington DC family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Terrific place. The house was beautiful and very clean. The only thing I think could improve our stay was if wash cloths for the shower and bath mats to step out of the shower on and also kleenex were provided would have been nice. This house is very conveniently located by tons of things. We loved our stay. The owners are very kind and easy to work with.

I CANT IMAGINE A BETTER PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! With 4 adults and 8 teens, 3 generations from 4 families, we had plenty of space! I'm not sure why it lists 2.5 baths since there were actually 4! (one was split up - shower/sink in one room, sink/toilet in another room). We loved being able to all sit together at the dining table to relive the day together. No need to use the car once we arrived - Metro was one short block away! A short walk to the zoo was nice too. Everything you could possibly need was in the kitchen, all in excellent condition and high quality. No scrimping by this owner! We had trouble fitting the 15 passenger van in the carport, but we made it work. Ample room for other size cars or vans. We were very pleased. Allen answered all our emails promptly, answered all of our questions. He was readily available during our stay, although we never needed him! We highly recommend this property! Thank you Allen!

Family Vacation

  • 4 out of 5
Initially the listing pictures were very dull but it was indicated that the property was under rennovation. A review of Allen's other properties persuaded me to rent this property. Location is everything. The Metro is a block away, resturants, CVS, and fast food places are within walking distance. The property mirror images the photos on the website, clean and new. The kitchen and dining area is where everyone gathered after a day of sight seeing. Our family consisted of seniors, teens, and young adults. With one television, we relied on Ipads and laptops for entertainment. I would recommend this property to others. If I would add anything: thermostats on each level. The basement apartment was quite cold when the air conditioner kicked in. Special thanks to Allen for making our stay comfortable. A great owner who is always on call.

Owner's Response: Lillie and her family took a chance and we made sure they are well taken care of. The thermostat issue was just a matter of closing the registers in the basement as they are naturally a bit cooler being close to the AC unit. That took care of the issue and the next guests had no issues with it.
Thanks Lillie for your suggestions.
