REVIEWS:

Karen – “My husband and I stayed in the Birdhouse for a week long getaway. We enjoyed the quiet and picturesque location of this apartment. The bus and subway system were easy and convenient to navigate from there. I was very impressed with the communication we received from Charlotte and the host prior and during our visit. We felt very well taken care of and comfortable in our home away from home.”--May 2013

Gregory – “The Bird House was great! It is close to everything you need, yet far enough away to feel comfortable and at home. Mattias was helpful and a fantastic host. Any time we had a question we sent him a text and soon we had an answer or help. Any time we wanted to see museums, take a tour, go to the flea market,

About Charlotte Perry

My business is LUXbnb, we offer short-stay properties in wonderful neighborhoods in Northwest Washington including those areas in high demand by visitors, i.e. DuPont Circle, Georgetown, Palisades and Capitol Hill. You can view some of our other studios and homes for stays from 4 nights up to 8 months; see HomeAway # 914007, 3495967, 3495973, 3495995, 3495973, 3496279, 3496282, 3496283 and 3496278 for details. Let us know your travel plans and we will find the best fit for your needs. Be generous and share the knowledge of LUXbnb, your source for short-stay rentals in Washington, with your friends, family and colleagues.

Our latest addition are vacation properties for Washingtonians. See the Washington Vacations section on our website for homes in the nearby mountains. Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.

A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the 'must-see' sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.

We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.

Reviewer Comments:
We had a great time at the Bird House. The location is very good if you have a car or don't mind taking the bus (no metro). There are shops, restaurants, grocery, Starbucks all within easy walk. Free street parking is a block away, a rarity for DC. It was very cold mid-November when we stayed and Matthias turned up the central heat and told us how to raise our thermostats, so we were very warm and comfortable. The kitchen is small but complete and awesome to have compared to a hotel room. <br/><br/>Visitors should be aware of the western location relative to major attractions, but for us visiting family and friends Palisades is an ideal location. We are already making plans to come back in the spring and stay at Bird House again. Everyone was super accommodating and nice, really a pleasure to do business with.

The Bird House is a great place to stay in a beautifully quaint community just outside the city. Matthias was fantastic to work with and was able to accommodate our early arrival time effectively giving us an extra day in DC. Highly recommend this property!

Reviewer Comments:
My son and I had a wonderful stay at the Bird's House. It is a very safe, green and enjoyable neighborhood with many families, lots or parks, playgrounds and other activities. It is also very close to Georgetown and you can easily avoid traffic by taking certain roads. The location is ideal. The owner and LUXbnb were both very response to any concerns raised, making the stay that much better. I would certainly come back given the need and will recommend the apartment heartily.

Good neighborhood

  • 4 of 5
Carole and I enjoyed the apartment a lot. There was sufficient room to move about and the neighborhood is great for restos, etc. It is important to pay for the barking as the on street options are not good. We did not like the 9x12 carpet in the bedroom as it was stained. Take that away and we would give it 5 stars.

The place was alright. The hosts are pretty professional. It was my first time using Roomarama, and I was kind of skeptical about it, but it all worked out stupendously.
