About Property Owner

We are family owned and operated. From the left meet Kate, Jarek (sister and brother) and our mom Dana.

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean, conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

Spring Break, DC Style!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in a Jarek and Kate property and once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is clean and well maintained. Since there is a unit above this one, noise can be a factor, but it didn't really bother us too much. If you are sensitive to noise though, you may want to take that into consideration. The proximity to the metro, stores, and restaurants can't be beat. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Spacious and well maintained! Upcoming neighborhood is great.

We had a fantastic time in this spacious rental. Close to the metro and reasonable restaurants. No need to have a car, everything can be reached by bus or metro with ease. Thank you! Had a fabulous time in Wash. DC.

Wonderful Stay. Wonderful Property

  • 4 of 5

Everything about this apartment met my expectations. The description was spot on -- I actually thought it felt bigger than it looked in the photos, a pleasant surprise. The unit was well maintained and very clean when we arrived -- there were even some fresh flowers out. The owners were wonderful to work with and provided excellent information on the area. The proximity to the metro as well as shops and restaurants in the neighborhood couldn't be better (we especially loved Meridian Tap). We had six adults plus one baby staying here and the space was sufficient -- the three full bathrooms make all the difference. I would stay here again if we visit DC in the future.

Perfect for DC Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us to stay while visiting family in the neighborhood. The location is perfect: close to the Metro, Target and many restaurants. The apartment is attractively furnished and very comfortable. Although the third bedroom is described as being "open", that really only refers to the fact that it closes with a curtain rather than a door. That bedroom is completely private and is perfect for someone who prefers a dark room. The kitchen was very well stocked. The owners have supplied lots of books on visiting DC. We hope to return to DC soon and would definitely stay here again.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We thought this was a great place for us to enjoy our visit to D.C. The close proximity to the Metro and large grocery store were ideal. We purchased a lot of groceries and carried them back to the rental so we could eat meals in which saved us a lot of money as D.C. is costly with a party of 5. We found the owner to be helpful upon arrival. The only two downfalls are that the beds are very firm and we worried a lot about disturbing the owner in apartment below as our 6 year old is used to a single family house. We only walked back to the apartment late one night but felt safe doing so. The unit came well equipped with the basics and the laundry facilities were a huge benefit also. All in all, a great, safe, convenient, comfortable place to stay. When planning a trip to D.C., don't plan on using the Metro to return to DCA on an early flight as it doesn't open until 5a.
