GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
We stayed just about a week and enjoyed every minute of the stay. Dara and Al were friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. The Carriage House was just as described; close to the metro, grocery as well as close to attractions and restaurants. The outside deck & lounge chairs was a nice addition and a great place to relax (on the cool nights) after a long day of sightseeing. We would definitely recommend.

DELIGHTFUL ACCOMMODATION, GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a base from which to explore DC, this is a terrific choice.

The Carriage House is in a great location, literally less than a 5 minute walk to U Street metro station. Alternatively, walking is just as easy to do from this location to downtown DC & all the sights of the National Mall.

The neighbourhood is safe & you have heaps of options if you want to eat out locally.

The accommodation is spotless & you have a private entrance so you can come & go as you please.

Dara is always available to answer questions & very helpful. On the day I arrived, it was raining & she very kindly offered me the use of her husband's coat so I could go exploring while staying warm & dry.

I would not hesitate to stay here again.

CHARMING!!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed in the Carriage House for a week, and could not have asked for a better place to stay. It was very comfortable and convenient to the Metro. Dara and Alphonso were very gracious and easy to work with, and even included a list of nearby restaurants and grocery stores near by on the refrigerator. The outside deck quickly became our favorite place to hang out after a day of sightseeing - outside space is a real treat in DC. The U Street corridor a "happening" place, full of good eateries and clubs, and is very close to the Mall and museums. I hope this place is available the next time I go to DC... we really loved our stay!

COZY, CONGENIAL STUDIO

  • 5 of 5
We arrived here in DC via subway and were met by a lovely guide who took us to the apartment. she showed us how to get out the back and access the streets. This place is very near the U St Metro stop which carried us to our many venues on our 10-day stay here.
The apartment is warm, clean, well-equipped and quiet. The French-inspired decor took us back to Paris memories. Our host was very accommodating and helpful. The neighborhood was as described in the listing, and we enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere.
We will keep this little studio in mind when next we travel to DC and heartily recommend it to travelers who want a home base while visiting the home of US government.
Thanks go to Dara for creating such a welcoming space.
Aloha from Hawai'i,

LOVED IT. WOULD RENT HERE AGAIN IN A SECOND.

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time I did HomeAway and I was super happy with the experience. I wanted to do all the sites during the day downtown and then come back to a cozy and hip DC neighborhood to relax at the end of the day. This is exactly what Dara's carriage house is. Right in Logan circle it is 2 blocks from the Metro and bike share. 1 block the other way on 14th street is a ton of great restaurants. Dara sets the carriage house up with everything you need and got back to me right away with any questions I had. We had a really great visit and I would stay here again in a heart beat. I run hipsterhenry.com "The Parent's Guide to Philadelphia" so I am always super conscience about making reviews and this was such a great experience. Also Dara's place is perfectly located because we were driving in from Philadelphia. Logan Circle is right at the top of the city so we drove right in and did not have to deal with crazy traffic. We just parked and had a great time. Thanks Dara!
