F. CUSTOMER REVIEW

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, Stayed at The Bird House

Gregory – “The birdhouse 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, etc. we jumped on the D6 bus and in no time we were there. And if we didn't feel like going downtown we could walk to a number of shops, restaurants, hiking trails, or parks in the neighborhood.”

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.

We stayed at the Bird House in the Palisades neighborhood for a week in October. Our unit was clean and comfortable, and quiet at night. There are several good to excellent eating establishments within steps of the Bird House and a bus to downtown at the corner. All in all, a very enjoyable experience. I would recommend the Bird House to those wanting a good place to stay in DC.

We enjoyed the Bird House

My husband and I stayed at the "Bird House" for four nights in September 2013. As advertised, it's in a lovely neighborhood with several dining choices within walking distance. We had two delicious dinners right across the street at Et Voila -- highly recommended! The apartment was compact, but nicely decorated, clean and well-maintained and met our needs very well.

We had a car (and appreciated the off-street parking) but you could, with some planning, get around on the D-6 bus which stops right outside.

My only complaint (and my husband slept through this) was that I could plainly hear the upstairs guests walking around (as well as their TV), even over the white noise machine that was provided. The two nights when the upstairs unit was empty were very quiet.

Thank you, Matthias, for being so attentive and helpful during our stay.

We couldn't have been happier with this roomy studio apartment. Spotlessly clean, with updated appliances, a great shower, and convenient off-street parking. The neighborhood has tree-lined streets and a residential feel, although there are numerous good restaurants, including Starbucks, close by. A Safeway store and CVS a couple of blocks away made for easy shopping. Our contact person, Matthias, was helpful and welcoming. I can't recommend this rental highly enough.

convenient, affordable and cozy spot in DC

We'd really appreciated our stay at the Bird's House in the Palissade neighborhood. It is a convenient and safe spot with all the amenities around. We liked the cleanliness, the modern design and the calmness of this studio. We would recommend it to anyone going to DC.

The only and tiny downside that we found is that it is far from downtown, especially if you take the bus.
Owner's Response: Thanks guys! You are welcome back any time. You were great guest; clean, tidy and left a "light footprint!"

My husband and I stayed at the Bird House for 4 nights. It's in a great location and has parking right behind the building. The bed was comfortable, it has a nice kitchen and cute bathroom with shower. Everything was nice and clean. I would recommend a stay here and wish we could have stayed longer.
Owner's Response: Thanks guys! You are welcome back any time! You were clean, courteous guests and we appreciate your feedback.

Our apartment is located at 5139 MacArthur Blvd in NW Washington, DC on the Potomac River. Our wonderful location offers travelers the best of both worlds.
