Great group house for reunions.

  • 5 of 5

This was great house for our family gathering. We used it as home base while attending all the celebrations of my son's wedding in Potomac. We dubbed it the "Cousin House" -- the young people ages 22 to 37 stayed there and created new fond family memories. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep and we especially enjoyed the large well equipped kitchen, large dining room, family room and back screened porch (which was used by the parents of the cousins when they came to visit).

Will definitely rent again if have a family reunion. Robert was very accommodating to our needs.

A wonderful home for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Roberts home is beautiful, warm and welcoming. He was easy to communicate with , very accommodating and welcome us when we arrived. We rented the house for a family reunion and it could not have been more perfect. Everyone had plenty of space and privacy. The house had everything we needed for our stay, a beautiful covered veranda to eat on and extra tables and chairs for an outdoor BBQ. We are so grateful to Robert for welcoming us into his home, we would definitely rent this wonderful house again!!

We really enjoyed this house.

We really enjoyed this big house. Perfect location for site seeing. House does need some updating but other than that, can't think of anything negative.

Great place

We had our family gathering and sightseeing in DC.

Arrived from CA, CT, NH and NC. Easy to find the house.

It was spacious and comfortable for 13 of us!

We will definitely stay at the Robert's place again when we get together in DC in the future!

Perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

As we had several different families meeting up for a college reunion, we wanted a space that would allow us all to spend time together, yet also have our own space. The house was perfect for this. The kitchen was perfect for making large meals and the dining room fit us all easily.

The house was clean and well spaced out for a larger group. Robert met us at the house shortly after our arrival and was very pleasant.

Would rent again.

Nice place for a family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The kids had space to play and move about while, at the same time, allowing bed space and rooms to accommodate all the adults in our family gathering. We enjoyed visiting both indoors and outdoors. We were very pleased with our time in Bethesda.
