The house was very clean, 30 minutes drive to DC, noticed a bus stop in walking distance but we did not try it. Orange line happened in maintainance during our stay, a little inconvenience, but manageable since I could drive in the city to pick my families up. The house location was very good, close enough to get on rt 66 highway quickly, but still quiet once getting off the road. There are both American grocery stores and Chinese grocery stores close by, house has some basic utensils to cook simple foods, though most of the pots are old. There was no detergent in the house, but we managed to buy a bottle from the near by Safeway store, still able to wash the cloths. Felt a little sorry for the owner since she had to live in the basement when we occupied the house. Overall very good experience staying in the house for 3 nights. Would recommend to others, and will definitely come back next time visiting DC area.
