Guestbook comments from the owner

There were 8 of us staying, and there was plenty of space for all. We enjoyed the convenient and central location of the house, and made use of the local shops/ restaurants.

The kitchen was well equipped, and everything in the house worked fine.

Great location walking distance to capitol and the eastern market

  • 4 of 5

Location was excellent. Greats bars and restaraunts within walking distance. Apartment was clean with plenty of space for all of us and not feel cramped. Beds were comfortable and hot water lasted through all showers. Couldn't figure out how to turn on the the wall air units until the last day but was comfortable enough without them. Highly recommend this property!!!

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

This house was really nice. It's well kept and neat. Best part about it though is the location. It's only a few blocks from the subway, and about a block (or maybe even less) from the bus. We had 8 people and there was room for everyone. Only down side is on the street parking, but we got lucky and found spots right in front which made bringing luggage into the house easy. Owner is prompt to respond to any inquiries, and provided all the basics for our stay. Check in and check out is very easy. I'd definately recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in DC for a few days.

Charming, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here over Cherry Blossom festival with 7 of the women in my family. The house was really convenient to not only the Metro but to restaurants, wine shops and markets. The house is very clean, comfortable and designed with a charming whimsy that added to the comfort. I'd go back in a minute.

Best Stay in DC!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The location was just too perfect. We were within walking distance of the National Mall, the botanical gardens, and so much more. The place was roomy, clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. I would highly recommend this place. Thank you for making this place available. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and much of it had to do with the wonderful home.

Perfect... but not Posh

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location and owners!!! We had a house full and plenty of room. Close to great pizza, local bars and a couple of good restaurants: Medium Rare and Ted's Bulletin... get the carrot cake at both!!! We parked out front for the entire stay and took the Metro everywhere. Felt very safe and comfortable... Please keep in mind, there is only 1 shower/tub. A bit of "roughing it" for several people. Also, have someone upstairs with you if your in the upstairs bathroom with the door closed... a few of us couldn't open the door ourselves from the inside.

It's not posh, but is really cool for an historical DC vibe.

Spacious Home

  • 4 of 5

The house was amazing - it was large and there was plenty of space for everyone to lay out. There were four adults in our stay. There are 2 metro stops within a few blocks of the home and a bus stop right down the street. Plenty of excellent places to eat along the main street - the Mexican restaurant down the road was fantastic. There's also a farmer's market a few blocks down that you must go to; they had tons of food and other items for sale. Within walking distance of the Capitol and National Mall. We didn't have a car or bike so we walked everywhere. It made for sore feet at the end of every day, but it was doable.

The only downside was it being on the corner of a busy street. Most mornings it was extremely loud with traffic and workers working right outside in the alley. The floors were a little scary in some places; there were holes and it felt like they could give at any minute. We asked the handyman to come out and put new lights in one of the bedrooms as none were working, but that never happened.

Other than those few things, the stay was great, the house was fantastic and we would stay here again.
