“We enjoyed our stay at this property.” 5 stars
This is a great property. Nicely decorated, not cluttered and very clean. It has everything one might need for a short stay. It would be a great house for a long stay as well. It is light and roomy and so near commercial Georgetown that we walked everywhere. Very convenient for parking during the day with a guest permit. It is a well managed property. We really enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend it.
