We rented both the house and the lower level apartment so 15 of us from three continents could celebrate our son's wedding and also enjoy a week-long vacation together. We ranged in age from 24 to almost 90 and everyone agreed it was both the perfect house and perfect location. The kitchen is fantastic-- large enough for us all to congregate.The third floor bathroom is spectacular. Allen was immediately responsive to minor issues and is an engaging host. And everything in DC is easily accessible on foot, by Circulator, bus, and metro. Highly recommended!
