Our family has traveled the world. We have ridden elephants, camels, ox carts, rickshaws. Tuk Tuks, cog railway and canal boats. Transportation is not as exotic in Washington, but we can provide guidance for walking tours, Metro rides, and bicycle trips.
We can guide you to the many Washington Museums, particularly those you must see. You can also visit our own small collection of world art including: Bedouin Camel Bag, Egyptian Papyrus Painting, Kenyan Batik, Ugandan Wild Life Painting, Peruvian Weaving, African Sculpture, Hindu Ganesha, Indian Great Mandela, Israeli and Mexican Pottery, and Australian Walkabout.
At any time, the Washington area is home to over a hundred live theatrical performances, a number within an easy walk or Metro ride. We subscribe and contribute to the Kennedy Center, the Shakespeare Theater, the Phillips Museum, the Newseum, and the Keegan Theater. We're happy to critique the shows we have seen.

Our home at 1829 Riggs Place is on a quiet one way street but only three blocks from Dupont Circle and its many restaurants, shops and Metro, and steps to more shops and restaurants on neighboring 18th street, in Adams Morgan, and in the U-Street Corridor. We could not be happier with our safe, quiet and convenient location.
Our neighborhood is populated with very interesting people, most of whom will be happy to meet and talk with you. There are always crowds at the two local Starbucks, playing chess or music at the Circle, and at the fenced in city dog park at S street and New Hampshire Avenues.
Our spring break was near flawless at Riggs Place on Dupont Circle. We felt very comfortable with two adults and two kids and had an incredible time. Roberta and Gregg left a neighbor as contact while the start of our trip overlapped with their being away from the property just in case we needed help. They gave us great tips for traveling in DC and wonderful recommendations for transportation. The location is ideal and the food in the area was outstanding. Plenty of room for breakfast lunch or dinner at the apartment and great choices for eating out. Thanks for a great stay. We would definately return and recommend their rental.
My husband, I and our two sons stayed 11 nights in this homey apartment. The photos in the listing accurately reflect the apt which we found clean and with ammenities in good working order. Besides features mentioned in other reviews, we apprecitated: power strips in the bedroom and living area for recharging gadgets and using a hairdryer, great lighting in each room, full-sized fridge (teen boys= lots of food and milk), less restrictive rear entrance that provided easy access for the three family members over 6', separate controls in bedroom and front room for A/C (which kept the apt cool despite 100+ degree days), and real economy vs. hotel options.There is an iron/board and hairdryer, bin for recycling, reusable shopping bags; owners provide garbage bags, dish and bath soap, paper towels and napkins . A basket in the apt holds lots of brochures and area info. Owner noise through the ceiling is minimal. Sheers cover the windows on front and rear doors but don't offer complete privacy. Unlike most hotels, the exhaust fan in the bathroom works great so you don't exit your shower into a sauna. We found the apt location to be very convenient for the lovely neighborhood walk to the Metro and Safeway, with a CVS, B of A ATM, and Krispy Kreme a little bit farther walk to the south. Roberta and Greg were accessible and responsive to a couple of issues that developed and were resolved promptly. They gave ample notice if they needed to access the apt. Security deposit was refunded promptly. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to others and would likely rent it again when visiting the D.C. Metropolitan area. Thanks Roberta and Greg for a lovely stay!
We stayed in this large apartment for five nights, my husband and I and our two adult daughters. It was comfortable and extremely convenient and in a very safe and elegant neighborhood. The owners live above and were accessible and very cooperative. The entrance thru a tiny stairway is appealing, heat and air conditioning are fine, kitchen is complete and there is lots of space. That it is partially below the sidewalk level is not an issue. There is plenty of light. The bathroom is adequate and the shower has forceful hot water! Our daughters slept on the futon couches in the living room and we used the spacious queen bedroom. My only complaint was the absence of one or more comfortable chairs..for reading or conversation. Other than that we think your stay in this unit will be delightful!
Our family of four stayed in this unit June 2011 and had a wonderful stay. The rental is spacious, clean, quiet and suited us well. Greg and Roberta had left us coffee and snacks in the kitchen which was a very nice surprise. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and cookware, dining utensils, etc, and we ate in several meals. However, it is located to within walking distance to Dupont Circle where we found our metro station and a great variety of restaurants! We particularly liked Potbelly for sandwiches, Flippin Pizza and Raku for asian. The Milmans were very helpful with suggestions for places to eat, visit and such. Greg took care of getting our internet set up twice because our computers kicked us off. I would definately recommend this unit to anyone wanting to be in DC in a safe and quiet neighborhood!! This was our first use of VRBO.com and it was a pleasure to stay in this unit! Thanks Greg and Roberta!
Our family spent 5 nights here in April 2011 and were thrilled with the accommodations. The apartment is very well located, just blocks from the Dupont Circle metro in a neighborhood brimming with great restaurants within walking distance. The area was safe and charming. The apartment was a good fit for our family of 4 with an adequate sized kitchen to accommodate breakfast and a fresh bathroom with thick towels. The place was clean and well decorated with all the little amenities you need. The entrance down to the apartment door is tight but worked fine for us. The apartment is below ground but has windows at street level on 2 sides plus two doors with windows so there was plenty of light and you never felt underground. Greg and Roberta were very thoughtful, stocking our fridge for our late-night arrival, answering all of our questions promptly and adequately, accommodating our checkout time, and welcoming us to their home. We enjoyed our stay tremendously!
