average rating of 4.875 based on 40 reviews


  • 5 of 5

The property was everything as listed and from the pictures! It was VERY clean and well kept. Lots of space and close to everything in the city. Only thing is, I did not like the outside of the building. Upon arrival, the curb appeal is not very appealing, but once inside you forget all about the curb appeal.

Amazing place to stay! Great location. Very clean. Plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved our stay at this property. The location with excellent as we were able to walk to Eastern Market, Safeway and to the sites near the Capitol. There are many coffee bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. We were able to use Lyft for inexpensive rides when we were wanting a break from walking or going a little further distance. We felt safe in this neighborhood and the house was very clean. We loved the brick walls, exposed beams and wood floors. The kitchen was very well equipped. Check in and check out were easy. The owners/manager were easy to contact and responded quickly.

beautiful home in safe neighborhood near the national mall

  • 4 of 5

the home is beautiful and quite large for the price. three full bedrooms with 2 full baths and a half bath. beautiful updated kitchen. nice neighborhood that is quiet. the front door uses a number code lock that they send to you so you dont even have to meet someone to check in. there is a basement washer and dryer. great home for families. near the national mall, although not walking distance for most families.

i will say that communication with the owners is a problem. they dont answer their cell phones and they return emails very slowly. parking around the home is hard. you have to park on the street and you have to have a parking pass to park on the weekdays. they will get a parking pass to you after you pay the $50, but the process is very confusing and again they are slow to respond to you.

once we figured out how to park, it was fine. overall a good experience.

Great vacation in DC!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting the DC area and didn't really know what to expect. This is a great house and the location was perfect as it is just a short walk to the metro. Parking - with a permit - was easy. We only used our vehicle a few times during the week to travel to Fairfax and Monticello, so we didn't need to move it much. The house was perfect for our family of four. The house was clean and there were plenty of towels, linens, etc. With two teen-aged daughters, the washing machine and dryer were used frequently and much appreciated! We enjoyed the house very much and would stay there again. Cliff and Paul were responsive and took care of our requests promptly. Thanks for the wonderful place to stay!

DC townhouse has it all

  • 5 of 5

This well furnished town home was perfect for our group of seven. The location is close enough to walk to monuments and museums, or a short cab/uber ride if the weather isn't cooperating, so we didn't need to rent a car. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and highly recommend it to anyone planning a family trip to DC.

Lovely house, fantastic location, will be back

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous, parking was easy (with permit), it's a lovely walk to the Capitol and then on to the other monuments and museums. Metro is a few blocks away, Eastern Market also a few blocks away (there's a farmer's market/craft market on the weekends, in addition to the regular food stalls inside). Kitchen is well-stocked for eating at home. The owners were easy to work with and quick to communicate. It was pretty ideal for our group of 3 women and we'll be back again!
