I live by the Golden Rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you; taught to me by my beautiful Mother May. She passed her entrepreneurial spirit on to me from a very early age and I learned that behind every successful person is a team of family and friends providing unconditional support. That team makes me who I am today, a successful and genuine African-American Man.

I learned of this property a few years ago from a friend and fell in love with the vision to renovate this home to the beauty it should be. Such an exquisite area deserves a beautiful home to enhance the eclectic area that is the Beachfront Marina.

My favorite part of this home is the welcoming courtyard that leads you to a splendid balcony where you will feel the need to stop, turn around, and breathe in the view.

We are a family of 5, visiting for colleges and Spring Break. The house is very spacious and boys were pleasantly surprised to find Fusball and access to a PC. Safeway & Metro approx 3 blocks + reserved parking at house gave us a lot of flexibility. The Mall is 10 minute walk, thus you really don't need car if you prefer walking and public transport. Owner very responsive and accessible. Great stay. Thank you!

Very bad customer service

  • Submitted: Jan 3, 2014
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Upon arrival couldn't get into property called owner went to answerphone, managed to gain access as the key code box was broken.
No tourist/local information inside the house. which would have been helpful other properties we have stayed in have supplied these.
We informed the owner of a leak under the sink and one of the controls on the cooker was melted. He told us a plumber would attend the next day, didn't appear for 2 days so we had to keep mopping up the water, no reference to the issue with the cooker. Upon our return contacted the owner on numerous occasions to get our deposit back, DIDN'T reply to e-mails, had to contact Home-Away to initiate a complaint, only when Home Away contacted him did he reply to my e-mails. he then told me that we had stayed for more days than we had and refused to return our money, he also stated that he had given us a refund on the cleaning fee due to the problem with the leak, this was not the case and no refund of the cleaning fee has been refunded. Only received my deposit back when I sent a copy of my airline booking. A THOROUGHLY unpleasant experience , the owner was very bad at communication.
House was close to amenities.
The house was very pleasant and spacious.. Seating in the living room was limited and the kitchen equipment was also very sparse. House was clean and tidy.

Great House and Location a

This house is perfectly located within walking distance to the White House, Smithsonian, Embassy Row, restaurants & shopping. The community is lovely very safe and quiet, and the house was perfect for my family of 6 adults and a child. The owner exceeded every expectation, we were able to check in early and check out late. Rooms we're clean, large, modern & free internet. One of the best qualities of this location is that there are TV's in the bedrooms in which most of the locations on this website only have a TV in the living room. Our family is planning another stay at this house in 2015. The location cannot be beat. Five Stars! Best value in DC.

Top notch customer service! Excellent location!

We couldn't have asked for better customer service! Waverly was flexible and accommodating in every possible way! The townhouse was a perfect home away from home...we cooked all our meals including a complete Thanksgiving dinner for 6. The property is conveniently located with a short walk to the National Mall, 2 subway stops, a grocery store, etc. It made for a truly enjoyable family vacation and we would definitely rent this property again!
