A great place for a large family

My family of 9, consisting of myself and my wife, two adult children and their spouses, two single adult children and a grand daughter, enjoyed a wonderful week staying at this large and spacious house. We were able to use the house as our base of operations while we enjoyed numerous adventures in the Washington, D.C. area.
When at the house, each couple had their own bedroom on the second floor and the unmarried kids each had their own areas in the basement. The linens were clean and new. Each of the upstairs bedrooms had a very nice television in the bedroom. My wife and I had the master bedroom, which was surprisingly large with its own bathroom. Even with 8 adults staying in the house, we had plenty of room.
The neighborhood was very quiet. I had the opportunity to walk along the street and talk to some of the neighbors. They were very nice people. Given the size of our family, we rented two cars. We never had a problem with parking. There was always sufficient parking on the street for both of our cars.
With a modern kitchen, we were able to prepare and serve meals to the entire clan. After the meals, the family was able to gather in the commons area and around the table to play games, watch television and enjoy conversation. Almost all of us had electonic devices. The wifi was able to keep up with all of communications needs.
After being in Washington for several days, we were able to use the relatively new washer and dryer and clean our clothes. It was very nice to be able to clean our clothes without needing to travel to a laundromat.
We had to use our cars to travel to the nearest grocery store, a nearby Target store. We took a couple of trips to the store during our stay. Since it was a Target, we were also able to pick up all of the required purchases, both food and non-food items, in one stop.
Our family was able to stay together for a week in Washington and enjoy every minute of it. We felt safe and were very comfortable during our stay. I haven't mentioned the price. We feel the price was very fair. Would we stay here again? Absolutely!
