Beautiful, peaceful, safe area Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house was just down from the metro into DC. Quite safe area, easy in, easy out. The homeowner was very sweet. The house is large and very comfortable. Excellent value for the amount of space. Grocery store, gas station and restaurants right down the street. We left daily about 9:30 am to miss ALL the traffic. Thank you for a wonderful stay. This was our 1st rental with VRBO and definitely will not be our last. This home is highly recommended.

Clean, convienient and just a few quirks.

  • 4 of 5

Most importantly I'd stay at this home again and it's a fair price for the property. The entire place was spotless and clean. It's an older home, so there are some quirks that come with that (we had to jiggle a bedside light to get it to come on, some doors stick a bit, nothing major for a home of its age.)

The only real challenge was we had to be careful who all was showering when. After more than two short showers, the hot water turned to lukewarm. When I booked it I didn't realize the owner would stay in the basement for a few days of our stay (via separate entrance). The combination of the five adults in my group plus the owner might be a bit more than the hot water heater is set up for. But it all worked out.

Nice home.

  • 4 of 5

All rules should be disclosed prior to booking the property. Also it was stated there would be 1 towel per person, however that was only a dry towel. There were no wash clothes. Luckily we bought our own.

Owner's Response: I believe the rules are very clear. The towels and wash clothes were clean and dry and placed in the original place.

Overall good stay

  • 4 of 5

Improvements to get 5 stars: More towels than one bath towel per person (wash cloth and hand towels would have been nice). Antique furniture is delicate, not comfortable for relaxing. Living room was missing a tv to enjoy watching with other guests, we were secluded in our rooms that each had a tv. Positives: Comparable price. Very easy access to highways to get into DC. Centralized location to groceries, fuel, quick restaurants.

Sister Time in DC

  • 3 of 5

Property is conveniently located to airport and downtown DC. Nice neighborhood and accommodations were adequate. Berenice was quick to respond with some items we needed (she occupies the basement level of the house). 2 of the 4 bedrooms had a pull-out couch and daybed which worked okay for us. The 4 sisters enjoyed being together and are flexible enough to make any accommodation work!

DC Visit

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were in DC to attend a ceremony to award WWII Filipino veterans the Congressional Gold Medal. The cottage was in the perfect location for us to get to the US Capitol building and the Ritz-Carlton where the gala was held. It was easy to find and the accommodations were perfect for my family. I would recommend this cottage for anyone visiting our nation's capital.
