About The Owner

We are family owned and operated. From the left meet Kate, Jarek (sister and brother) and our mom Dana.

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean, conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Washington DC

We bought this property, one block to Metro, restaurants, grocery stores and cafes because we love the convenience of this unit and the neighborhood. You will find this unit very convenient for your stay and will enjoy its location, close to everything.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a wonderful location, a short distance to groceries and other stores and restaurants as well as the Metro. The layout was comfortable and suitable for entertaining. The kitchen was pleasant to move around and cook in. It all added up to a very pleasant stay.

Surpassed expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment, fully equipped and beautifully furnished with a convenient location near a Supermarket, shops and restaurants, it's not that close to the downtown area so expect quite a commute if you want to go to Museums and other National monuments. Other than that excellent place, very clean, feels like home right away... Would recommend to anyone going to D.C.

Nice pictures, but several missing amenities and small details overlooked

  • 3 of 5



-homey/comfortable (nice-looking furnishings)

-things in good working order

-decent appliances/kitchen (liked electric kettle)

-easy to access into the unit

-walking distance to Metro/Target/some restaurants

-nice floor plan

-good water pressure (except upstairs bathroom sink)


-required us to bring our own kleenex/shampoo/clothes detergent. I don't guests should be expected to bring these items.

-required us to wash our towels before leaving (with our own purchased detergent)

-required us to take the trash/recycling out before leaving, even though we pay a cleaning fee (isn't that what a cleaning fee is for?)

-we stayed in the lower unit, and the upper had a family with kids staying in it, and you can hear everything from above, including conversations!

-the towels are old and need to be replaced

-the upstairs bed felt little more than a futon

-downstairs guest bathroom sink runs, not just drips but a steady stream (but this can easily be fixed)

-many light bulbs out (can be easily fixed)

-upstairs bathroom didn't have a toilet paper dispenser (requiring you to grab the whole roll of toilet paper)

-not very close to the Smithsonian museums, a 5 minute walk to Metro + 20 minute Metro ride (if you time everything correctly); during rush hours, an Uber or taxi ride could be 30-45 minutes from the Mall

To summarize, the lack of several small items and details missed, add up to one big average stay. We had hoped for more, but it could have been worse.

Great choice for 3 couples!

  • 5 of 5

What a great rental! It was very clean, comfortable, and such a good location. The metro was a 2+ block walk through a pleasant neighborhood of row houses. The Heights Restaurant, the Coop, and Red Rocks Pizza were local restaurants we tried--all were good.

My husband and I took the upstairs bedroom with the king-size bed. There was a walk-in closet and a separate bathroom. A couch and a small sitting area were just outside the bedroom by the stairs. My sister and her husband had the queen-size bedroom on the main level, also with a walk-in closet and a bathroom . My niece and her partner had the small, windowless bedroom with a full-size bed and their own bathroom just across the hall. All of us agreed that the beds were comfortable.

We weren't home much of the time. We usually ate breakfast in, and then watched a little late night television after we got back from a day of sightseeing. This definitely worked for us! I would recommend it!

Great quiet condo!!!!! 2 blocks away: Metro, grocery store, Target, Starbucks

  • 5 of 5

Such a great condo. Cooking was easy, grilled steaks on the deck one night. The manager was a text away for the wifi password and any other questions I had.

Neighborhood was quiet and we felt safe. We would recommend this place and would definitely stay here w our family again.

The home was as advertised. It was perfect for our girlfriend getaway.

  • 4 of 5

The house was well laid out. One thing to note is that you will need to climb stairs in and outside the home. We found it to be charming and well supplied. Even when we had a problem with a toilet Jarek was there in minutes to take care of it. We also loved the restaurant he recommended in the neighborhood. Parking as almost anywhere in DC was a challenge but once parked found the Metro nearby.

If we go to DC again I would rent it again.
