Guestbook comments from the manager

The home is spacious, very comfortable and well-appointed. The property is a located about 1.5 blocks ( 6 houses) to shops, Starbuck and restaurants - Wildwood Shopping Center. The closest Metro was the Grosvenor Red Line stop on Rockville Pike. We had meeting at NiH ... about 1 mile - quick drive.. It's an ideal, neighborhood, especially if you have a car or don't have a car!

Great Vacation Home Metro to DC Sights

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was comfortable and inviting. There is everything you need. The 3 bedrooms were very comfortable. The place was sunny, spacious and located close to everything. We walked to Starbucks and Balducci Gourmet for prepared meals - about 2 blocks from the property. We also loved the secluded fenced backyard great for our morning coffee. As for visiting Washington DC we drove 1 mile to the Grosvenor Metro parked our car and it was a straight shot to the DC sights. Super Easy! We later found out that there is a Ride On Bus stop 1/2 block from the house. Thank you for a delightful stay.

Nice house, .. and unexpected troubles

  • 3 of 5

I had very good contact with Joelle, the owner. I also really liked the house - the rent was on the expensive side, but it was perfectly fitting my requirements. So, I was happy to pay for it. I felt very well during my stay. I really enjoyed the house with my children :). Great location and nice setting :)

That being said, I have been both a tenant and a renting-owner for many years. Thus I made a point of taking care of the house as if it were mine. Then I was very surprised to see that Joelle initially wanted to charge me a full-day rental because I wanted to check out a couple of hours late. Subsequently, Joelle retained for two months my security deposit because of some reported damage that were arguably reported to the insurance company.

That was my first experience with HomeAway and I was not used to what the process was. At the end, it seems that Joelle returned to me the security deposit. Further to me sending several follow-up emails. Was that really necessary ? Or is it a way to extra-charge new-comers to HomeAway, if they don't follow up ? Certainly not a good advertisement for HomeAway ..

That being said, I hope that all of that was due to language misunderstandings, and I am looking forward to rent Joelle's house again. Again, a great place !!!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and everything just as described. Joelle was a wonderful and responsive host, she organized everything for a smooth arrival, stay, and departure. You can walk to a nearby shopping area with Starbucks, restaurants, grocery, convenience etc. just 5 minutes away. Or enjoy the seclusion of the huge back yard and bright interior of this architectural home "Mad Men"fans will die for! Thanks Joelle! Also it was super easy to catch a bus, or take Uber to the nearby Metro stops to get anywhere including the airport.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable house in the best part of town. Easy access to all the quaint shops and restaurants. Just a block or two to the expressway and major access roads. The house is light, bright and very clean. There is charming lush foliage around the house and a lovely, private patio area. Our only regret is that we didn't stay time.

This was home was comfy and had so many touches that made us feel so welcome. All the furnishings met all our needs; the kitchen was well equipped with a microwave and plenty of pots and pans, The bedrooms were well furnished with comfy beds and plenty of blankets. We loved having breakfast in the backyard patio. LOCATION was ideal - in walking distance of 5-7 restaurants, the drug store, coffee shops and a great gourmet store .Balducci's. Ride on bus less than 1/2 block and an easy ride to the Metro. The towns of Bethesda and

Chevy Chase had some great little restaurants. We will come again. Thank you

Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

We recently lived in this area, before moving out of state. This was the first trip back for myself and our 8 year old son. We were looking for a place that felt like home, and not a rental. We were absolutely pleased with our 7 night stay here. We could not have been more comfortable. We each had our own room, and my son especially enjoyed the smaller 3rd bedroom "nook" (as he called it) for reading and hanging out after visiting with friends, and playing in the backyard. We had rain, snow, and sun all in one week, and the house was very comfortable, warm and full of light. The expanse of windows in the photo on main page made weather watching enjoyable, yet you sit up on a hill so it always felt nice and private from the street. The owner was always available by phone or text with any questions. She was even kind enough to leave a box of Cheerios and milk for us, knowing our first night was a late arrival. The location is very convenient to walk to food and shopping, as well as getting on and off the Beltway. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a comfortable home away from home.
