Not as good as the Description made it seem

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights with our family of 5. We were disappointed in our stay. There was a lot of noise during the night from the street and from the neighbors all around the property (even behind the home). The 3 bedroom property has one TV in the living room with limited channels. It has limited towels and old and very inexpensive furniture and furnishings. The pictures on the listing are somewhat misleading. The two larger beds were very uncomfortable and hard and difficult to sleep in. When we had to wash towels after the first round of showers, we noticed a sign stating no laundry to be done after 9pm, which is tough after a full day of touring the city. We found ourselves re-using day after day the low quantity of towels and wash rags. Also, I’m not sure where one could buy such thin and cheap toilet paper that was in all these bathrooms. We had to first thing drive to buy some better TP. There are no restaurants or grocery stores within walking distance with small children. We enjoyed DC but are not likely to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you didn't have an enjoyable stay. Individual tastes may vary, but average cost of a leather set we have in the living room is $5K; sofas around $1-1.5K; TV stand with TV in the living room is $2K; granite dining table in the kitchen $3K with installation; the art in the house cost well over the damage/security deposit. For most people, this fits description of "expensive". Comcast plan has standard set of channels for DC area. Also, the sign does NOT ask NOT to do laundry after 9 pm; it's asking for a courtesy, but no explicit prohibition. If you had asked for toilet paper or other towels, we certainly would have provided it. Never heard of any noise complaints from your family during your stay; or had any similar noise issues with previous guests, the area is very residential and quiet. We are also within 10-12 min walk to multiple groceries or restaurants, which is reflected by previous guests' review and can easily checked by google locator. Sorry you didn't like the house, but we believe the review is simply not factual.

Clean, well-furnished, and in great location. Perfect for extended family, kids, etc.

  • 5 of 5

6 adults and 4 kids stayed for a family wedding. The house had plenty of space and kitchen furnishIngs for meals, but also close to good restaurants, etc. We had a great stay, and used a mix of Metro, Lyft, and walking to get around.

Immaculate and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Everything was clean and the kitchen had all that we needed. Beautiful home. Wifi and cable worked perfectly. Plenty of room for 2 adults, 2 teens, 2 little boys. One of our group had a broken ankle so the metro was not accessible for us--be aware if you have mobility issues the metro stops are about a 15-20 minute walk. Lyft or taxis downtown ran us about $20-25 for our group of 6.

Clean, Safe, Large Row House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a terrific time in Washington D.C. This row house is clean and open with plenty of beds. Skylights and natural light are lovely. There was lots of room at the table for all of us to eat, and there is also a spacious breakfast bar/counter.

We loved that the house was about 2 blocks from the National Zoo (free!) and a short walk to buses, the metro, and bike share bikes. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. The row house is about 1/2 mile walking distance to a grocery store, Target, and restaurants. The owner was wonderful to deal with. It was so nice to have this respite after busy days exploring the city. Oh, and the washer and dryer were great!

Everything was just as described. We enjoyed the house and location.

  • 5 of 5

Only had one complaint. When we arrived the air conditioning was turned off and it was 84 degrees inside. Luckily we checked in early so we turned it on around 1 o'clock. When we went to bed around 10 it was 79 degrees. That is pretty warm for sleeping. The next day the temp got better and was no longer a problem. That is the only problem we had. Everything was just as described and very nice. The neighborhood seemed safe and the kids loved being that close to the zoo. I would definitely recommend booking this property.
