Lovely older home convenient to the Vienna/Fairfax Metro Station.

  • 4 of 5

Great accommodating space that suited our needs. The only reason I didn’t rate it five stars is because the upstairs was uncomfortably warm.

Owner's Response: Hi Janine, Sorry about that, but there is a remote control in the master bedroom that provides A/C for that area of the house. You should have used it. Best Regards. Berenice

Great area

  • 5 of 5

Close to a gas station. Less than 2 miles to Whole Foods, cvs, dollar tree, print place and 25 minutes to capital by mini van. Very clean and comfortable beds. I would stay there again. We had 7 ladies and there was enough hot water. Kitchen equipted pretty good too. Just bring towels, everything else is included. I absolutely love the artwork and the attention to every detail! I seriously doubt you will find a rental this nice at a reasonable price. The one I stated in DC was three times the rate and half the quality previously. The short metro ride and renting a vehicle was well worth it. However I strongly suggest you just take Uber everywhere it makes life much easier!

Clean, convienient and just a few quirks.

  • 4 of 5

Most importantly I'd stay at this home again and it's a fair price for the property. The entire place was spotless and clean. It's an older home, so there are some quirks that come with that (we had to jiggle a bedside light to get it to come on, some doors stick a bit, nothing major for a home of its age.)

The only real challenge was we had to be careful who all was showering when. After more than two short showers, the hot water turned to lukewarm. When I booked it I didn't realize the owner would stay in the basement for a few days of our stay (via separate entrance). The combination of the five adults in my group plus the owner might be a bit more than the hot water heater is set up for. But it all worked out.

Nice home.

  • 4 of 5

All rules should be disclosed prior to booking the property. Also it was stated there would be 1 towel per person, however that was only a dry towel. There were no wash clothes. Luckily we bought our own.

Owner's Response: I believe the rules are very clear. The towels and wash clothes were clean and dry and placed in the original place.

Overall good stay

  • 4 of 5

Improvements to get 5 stars: More towels than one bath towel per person (wash cloth and hand towels would have been nice). Antique furniture is delicate, not comfortable for relaxing. Living room was missing a tv to enjoy watching with other guests, we were secluded in our rooms that each had a tv. Positives: Comparable price. Very easy access to highways to get into DC. Centralized location to groceries, fuel, quick restaurants.

Sister Time in DC

  • 3 of 5

Property is conveniently located to airport and downtown DC. Nice neighborhood and accommodations were adequate. Berenice was quick to respond with some items we needed (she occupies the basement level of the house). 2 of the 4 bedrooms had a pull-out couch and daybed which worked okay for us. The 4 sisters enjoyed being together and are flexible enough to make any accommodation work!
