We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the property and it's roominess. It fit seven nicely. We were very close to the grocery & restaurants plus it was great to have a private parking spot. My only suggestion would be to take out the window air conditioning unit since it was winter.

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful and gave you a real feel of DC. It was within walking distance to several dowtown attractions as well as a local grocery store. It is right next to a school and was on a very quite neighborhood street. Best part, at 7AM you could here the chapel bells ringing amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. Absolutely stunning, I would highly recommend this stay to anyone!

Four adults found this property to be suitable for our four-day visit.

  • 4 of 5

Proximity to the Smithsonian Museums was the primary reason for choosing this property. The number of bedrooms was a Plus. With Uber Eats being so convenient, we did not prepare meals for the limited time we were on property, so the kitchen was not tested. With TVs in all of the bedrooms and in the living room, we were adequately entertained. Having a washer/dryer onsite also was a big plus so that we did not return home with clothing to wash. The customer service was EXCELLENT. The Owner was available from beginning to ending with directions, tips about the surrounding area, etc. We had a small plumbing problem that was quickly addressed while we were there and likely addressed more fully after we left.

We will likely return next year since we did not see enough of the museums on this limited stay.

Safe neighborhood, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Smithsonian Vacation House. We were there in July of 2016. The location was great--close to 2 metra stops. It was also a very friendly neighborhood--we were able to walk a few blocks to a large grocery store and restaurants. The owner was very accomodating, and everything was ready to go for us when we got there. This was so much nicer than staying in a hotel! After sight seeing all day, it was great to come home to a house to relax and hang out.

We would definitely recommend this house! We had 7 of us--3 adults and 4 kids--and had plenty of room!

Great place to stay in DC

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five fit more than comfortably in the house. It really was a reasonable walk up to the National Mall. The kitchen was well equipped with what we needed to save some money on food. It was wonderful having so many bathrooms! We enjoyed the neighborhood and our stay.
