Superb! 10 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

We give this house 10 stars! It was clean and very well taken care of. Doug is on top of everything from lights to paper towels to technology. Lots of amenities and the service was superb! Doug was available and willing for whatever we needed (he even “arranged” beautiful weather!). Conveniently located with lots of fun stuff in the house as well. Kids loved it and didn’t want to leave. It was a nice balance for the kids to go out and tour then come home to more fun! Plenty of comfortable places to sleep as well as relaxing or just chilling. There was even new soaps and shampoos for us in each bathroom. We’ve been to many VRBO homes and this was hands down the best! Thank you, Doug, for a great vacation and wonderful memories!

A great location but needs to be deep cleaned!

  • 3 of 5

There were five women in our group and we stayed for two nights.


This home is in a great location. It is really close to Dupont Circle

There was a lot of room to hang out. 5 bedrooms

Doug was friendly and called to check in with us.

There is a lot of outdoor space that we did not get to utilize because of the weather.


Our biggest gripe about this house was that we did not feel that it was clean. There was old Chinese food and vegetables in the refrigerator and open bacon in the freezer. We found old trash in the bathroom trashcans. And we just kept finding areas in the home that did not feel clean to us. We may be a particular group, and I know that others may not be as bothered by this as us. But for us, it really affected how comfortable we felt staying in the house for the weekend. We did not want anyone coming in to clean in the middle of our two day stay, so we did not push the issue while we were there. But I would be hesitant to recommend this house without knowing that things had changed.

Owner's Response: What a shame. I bend over backwards for my guests and if anything, such as food left in the refrigerator, I am happy to rectify the situation.

Amazing House. Best in DC. Very impressed and would recommend to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

I would give this house 6 out of 5 stars if I could. The house was in great shape, well designed for a large group, and full of fun and interesting entertainment options. Truly a unique place. Additionally, you have all of DC at your disposal, either within walking distance or a very short ride away. The neighborhood was as safe as could be.

As for the owner, Doug, he was professional, attentive, courteous and responsive to all of our needs. As we were settling in over the first couple of days, we had some questions. He would either pop over or promptly call to help us answer the questions. Never once was he impatient during these calls. Good guy, good house.

Owner's Response: I love you guys! There was mutual admiration and respect. It's groups like that are a reminder why I enjoy sharing. You're welcome back anytime, Doug
