About Cliff Palermo
Washington D.C. Five Star Vacation Rentals. We have your stay covered in our Nations Capitol!
Why Cliff Palermo chose Northwest Washington
In the middle of it all, yet peaceful, quiet, and elegant. Washington is an amazing city and this property is located in the most vibrant part of the city in my opinion. Shops, restaurants, Whole Foods, the theater, Steps Away....
What makes this House unique
There are many unique things about this property. The property was a former Church Rectory. It was built for Communal living and the floors and walls are concrete and masonry. As a result it is very quiet floor to floor. The home has beautiful high celings and woodwork. It is directly across the street from the Masonic Temple and a lush Community Garden ..... Although the house is large, it is beautifully scaled and comfortable. There is an amazing park just up the hill with an incredible view of the city.... Quiet and Private the home has hosted countless Washington luminaries. It has one of the most incredible roof decks with an amazing view of the Masonic Temple one of the cities most interesting Archiectual masterpieces. This roof deck is available for your enjoyment until 9pm.

We had a wonderful time at the Rectory! Plenty of room for all of us and to spare. Loved the Kitchen and living areas, and the bedrooms are all very quiet and spread out- lot's of privacy if wanted.
Washington DC Lovely Home
Loved our home that we stayed in. So spacious. And near all kinds of transportation. 3 levels in the home and so hot water not always available for 3rd floor. Great home and lots of history in this home, I'm sure.
A week of family memories in Washington DC
Our herd of 16 people could not have picked a better location or accommodations than this very cool house. We stayed for a week. With the ages of our family ranging from 5 years to my 60 years there was always something for everyone to do. There is enough room to be together or to be alone in this home.
The location is magnificent. We walked and walked. Nobody rented a car. Now and then we Ubered to and from our destination. So much to see and do in DC.
At night the rooftop patio and later the huge dining room table were the venues for many a card game.
The kitchen is well equipped and relatively user friendly. The house is a bit quirky which is part of its charm. Given the age of the home and the number of people in our group, hot water for showers was an issue. Even when the master shower was not in use the hot water went fast. Be sure everyone knows to conserve the hot water.
Washer and dryer a life-saver for large group.
Everyone had a wonderful time. I would definitely stay here again with a large group.
Not accurately represented on the listing.
This property is huge and in a great neighborhood. But it stops there. The house needs a good deep cleaning and editing of stuff (especially in the closets which had bent wire hangers and ‘stuff’ - you did’t even want to put your clothes in there). The online photos did not depict the actual rooms - many of the windows treatments were gone, some furniture was changed (not for the better) and the bedding was different. The bed linens were worn and of poor quality. There were no extra towels and very few towels bars to hang damp towels after showering. The house could be lovely, but it’s not cared for. After Cliff’s arrival email of ‘how are things’ - I responded to him, particularly with some safely issuers - never hear another word from him. We had a wonderful time with our children and grandchildren but, it was because we were with them. We couldn’t wait to get out of the house in the morning, didn’t cook because none of us could imagine cooking in that kitchen. Very poor house experience.
Comfortable space for a large group.
The house is great. We were all comfortable. My only complaints are with the management company: they failed to process my credit card payment because I used Amx. They also did not bother to let me know until the day before we were to arrive that they did not accept AMX credit cards. I assumed the payment was processed and our reservation was set. Even with multiple communications after the paperwork was completed each time I had to specifically state exact address I was calling or texting about or I got back an evasive response or no response. The communications were frustrating. To be fair once we were in the house the communications seemed to improve and they were quick to respond to our needs. Though very slow to respond to questions about checking out.
The house is in a fantastic location and we could not have been happier with our choice. There was plenty of space for us to all have comfortable night sleep and plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped with fantastic appliances. We were able to keep two cars in the back lot. We were in walking distance to Whole Foods, Starbucks and Trader Joe’s. We took morning walks to Washington Monument, Lincoln memorial and Einstein memorial. You will not find a better location. It is a lovely historic home.
One additional note, this is not a good space for elderly folks or people with trouble managing stairs. While the house is large and spacious the walk ways are narrow. Both entry ways have stairs to climb to enter the house.
Lots of space and a quiet residential location
There was plenty of space with three separate living areas which worked well for our extended family of 12. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of tableware, pots and pans. The public space is very comfortable. Things weren’t in as good shape as we might have hoped upstairs. When we arrived there were no window coverings in one bedroom and there were no working lights in several rooms because a breaker had tripped. Happily, these issues were fixed when we asked. Overall, a very functional house.
Everything has been replaced and fixed. We had a big issue with the roof that required a complete replacement that was difficult to do between guests. House is in great shape and ready for your stay. Our staff is also here to fix any issues that arise during your stay.
