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, etc. we jumped on the D6 bus and in no time we were there

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.

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.

Reviewer Comments:
My mom and I chose to stay at the bird house rather than a Hotel during our first trip to the DC area and we loved it. It is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood with small restaurants and a grocery store nearby. The bus ride to downtown DC takes 30 minutes, costs less than 2$ and takes you a block from the White House. The host is super nice and helpful. The Apartment itself is very nice. Large enough for two adults with really everything you need to feel at home. I will recommend it to anyone going to the area and will certainly return there myself.

Reviewer Comments:
The property is quite nicely furnished--wonderful sheets-and a mixture of Ikea and heavy oak furniture. I rated the cleanliness of the apartment based on the 9-12 rug which I have described below. Matias, who was our contact was excellent and very helpful and friendly. The parking is not really what was advertised and much more difficult if you don't rent a space. This is not a location for people without a car as the affluent western side of NW long ago voted to prohibit the Metro from traveling through it, therefore, a car is quite essential. The photo in the advert with Homeaway shows a total carpet in the bed/sitting room. In fact, there is a heavily stained 9-12 rug over part of the floor. It should be taken away or replaced.

All was great except the heating. There was no thermostat to control the heat so sometimes it was cold, and sometimes it was so hot i had to open the window for cold winter air. I wonder how it would be in the summer heat!
