About The Irmen Family

We are the Irmen Family! We divide our time between our charming home in the city and our farm just a few miles away in the Appalachia foothills of rural Virginia. We love to experience the best of both worlds, which are equally steeped in many rich traditions that founded our country. We are happy to help our guests plan excursions within the nation's capital, as well as loads of fun adventures just a hop, skip and a jump away.

We live above the rental apartment with our two young sons who can at times be a bit rambunctious. But our home is very quiet for most of the day as we are out and about (especially on weekends since we are away at the farm) and we do not hesitate to remove ourselves if our goings on are at all disturbing to light sleepers.

We respect our guests' privacy and only visit if invited, but we are happy to meet with guests and answer any questions you might have. We have been renting our home for over a decade and are honored to host guests from all over the world.

We welcome you to our wonderful neck of the woods and look forward to hosting you!

Rachel and Matt,

We enjoyed our stay at your place. It was in a very convenient location, and very quiet. We slept well, and there was plenty of room for all four of us. The parking spot worked out so well.

Thanks so much,

Perfect place for our trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay here! There were 3 of us women and plenty of room for all of us! We traveled to DC for the Marine Corps Marathon and spent a few days sight-seeing beforehand. The location was perfectly located just a short walk from the metro. We felt completely safe even walking home at 11 pm two of the nights. It was quiet and clean and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying here if you are traveling to the area!

Quiet, comfortable and convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a pleasant and quiet stay here. The location provides the combination of a quiet neighborhood location with easy access to much of downtown & official Washington via the Yellow/Green Metro lines. The property is a lower level suite in a row house and is accessed from the back with a comfortable bed, roomy living room, small office/2nd sleeping space with plenty of light from block windows and good air conditioning. We didn't really use the kitchen area except for preparing simple breakfasts. There is a good washer/dryer combo machine which we did use. The owners are very pleasant and live above the unit. They responded quickly to a couple of minor requests. The Metro is a short two block walk as is an excellent coffee roaster and a good diner. Major grocery, organic grocery, and drugstore were also right there. It was an easy 10-15 minute walk to more restaurants in Columbia Heights nearby. We arrived and departed via the Metro (from the airport and to the train station) and both were easily done. We will certainly consider staying here again if we are visiting Washington DC in the future.

Cute, convenient, friendly owners

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights with 2 adults and 2 teenagers. This is a small place but worked great for this family seeing D.C. On a budget. Very easy to get to the metro, Rachel left great directions. Bedroom is nice and plenty of room. My daughter had her own "room" on the futon, and my son was comfortable on the couch. Cute efficiency kitchen with full size fridge. All dishes, pans etc are there as well as the linens and towels. Bathroom is small but met our needs. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect, just as described !

  • 5 of 5

Rachel was wonderful to work with, she greeted us upon our arrival and was extremely helpful with any and all questions we had about parking and metro. This unit was perfect for our family of four, 13 and 10 year kids were just as pleased as us. Metro was just 2 blocks away and about 5 stops to all the main things we needed to get to.

Perfect for our cozy family of three!

  • 5 of 5

Being close to the metro we were able to park our car during our entire stay! Loved that! Rachel was great about responding to any questions we had. Arrival was flawless. The property was as stated on the listing and was perfect for us to make our own meals, kick back after a long day of seeing the sights and get a good night's sleep to do it all again! As others have reviewed, we too walked back from the metro later in the evening and felt safe doing so. Should we make it back to D.C. we are glad to know there is a place that meets our needs without completely breaking the bank!

Perfect for a family of 4 !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 kids ages 10 and 13. It was perfect for us! It had everything we needed and was so close to the metro. We liked being able to cook dinner each night and save money on eating out! The only thing I looked for that wasn't there was a baking dish- but even that wasn't a big deal at all! The bedroom is big with plenty of space. My daughter loved the little den area with the futon and my son begged for the pull out couch since he wanted to watch TV all night !! The owners were super easy to work with! Thank you and if we come back to DC we will stay here again!
