About Nancy Irigoyen

I have retired from the Organization of American States and I am enjoying managing my rental properties. I am delighted welcoming and meeting interesting guests from all over the US and the world. I make sure that my guests will not miss home and that their vacations will be memorable ones.

Nancy Irigoyen purchased this house in 2003

Why Nancy Irigoyen chose Northern Virginia - Washington DC

I went to college in New York City and moved to work in Washington, DC. I lived in Virginia since 1971 and fell in love with the wooded areas of Falls Church. I bought a small house in the Sleepy Hollow Woods area and passed by the White House every day waiting for the owner to sell it. I finally bought it in 2003, fully renovated in 2014 and enjoyed it for 12 years. After my retirement, we decided to downsize and now my husband and I live two blocks away in our small first house. I m also a part time translator and I have my office and reference library in the basement of the house, which is not for rent.

We love our White House! It is unique and we tresure our memories living in it. It will be hard to sell it! Fortunately, we found the best alternative to keep it by renting it to guests who will enjoy it and appreciate it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Guests will enjoy the closeness to Washington, DC. The White House is an elegant and quiet place surrounded by big trees and flowers in the spring and summer. The entire house is spacious, full of natural light and is a permanent gallery of fine art and European furniture. As per the 2015 reviews posted by our guests, the White House and services provided were rated on a permanent basis, as a Five Star rental property.

Comfortable, well-equipped home has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a multi-generational party of 8 family members, 3 couples and 2 small children, and the house worked very well for our needs. The house has plenty of room to accommodate a group of that size; there were plenty of house keys, easy access to the wifi, and a big flat screen. The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped with top of the line appliances and gadgets, from the Viking range, gas and electric ovens, to the latest Cuisinart, and is stocked with all of the basics you need. If you like to cook, you will not be disappointed! The eat-in kitchen is bright and airy, with lovely garden views, counter seating for 4, table seating for 8, plus a garden deck with BBQ and outdoor tables. There is a lovely garden that was full of peonies in bloom and Nancy encouraged us to pick and enjoy - which we did!

The bedrooms are well-equipped with good linens and comforters; baths were well-equipped with quality towels, good water flow and plenty of hot water. We were there for a heat wave of record temps, and were pleased that the A/C works!

We were visiting for a family wedding in Arlington, and the location worked for us to access all of the week's festivities, plus easy access to DC museums, zoo, and nearby parks for the children.

The house is more of an adult retreat, so we did a bit of "baby-proofing" on arrival, moving some pieces out of harm's way to make the space safer for the children and for Nancy's collections. Nancy was extremely accommodating in every way. We would rent it again!

Nancy was a wonderful hostess, anticipating our needs and making our visit most enjoyable. The house was a great place to host Easter dinner for our family. The kitchen was well appointed and perfectly suited to prepare a meal for our large family. We are looking forward to a return trip in August.

Wonderful experience, very accomodating!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house and location for our trip to Washington, D.C. The house was beautifully furnished, spacious, and included all of the amenities we could have ever wanted, and more. The location was perfect...close to the Metro and local amenities but without the traffic and noise. The owner is lovely and so very accomodating. I will absolutely be recommending this house to family and friends.

Fantastic - better than advertisd

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful. Everything was better than expected and the host was beyond accommodating. Home kept getting better with small unexpected details always in place for comfort and function.

Meticulously fresh and clean - every space.

Comfort was at a high luxury standard and the fantastic artwork and gorgeous pieces kept sinking in.

Huge living room area and giant TV was perfect for 2 families of 4 (8 total), with teens and tweens.

Great value, great host....5 stars on every category.

Local Metro Station (East Fals Church) was 5 minutes away and went straight to all D.C. Locations. Washington proper 15 min drive (Sunday AM).

Don't make a mistake - book this location! Now and be a hero to all your crew!!!
