Great location...great alternative to a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were in DC for a wedding...and we really didn't want to stay at a hotel with our whole family (including toddler and infant grandchildren)! The house was a wonderful alternative and proved to be just perfect. The house was comfortable, clean and very well appointed. Everything that could be done to make our stay comfortable was done! There was room to spread out and room to gather together...we just loved it! We highly recommend this rental!

Excellent property in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous time in DC. This was in part due to this excellent property. The property is in a great location, just a couple of blocks from the Capitol. The standard of the property is very high, as was the service we received from the rental agency. I was very impressed that they contacted us on day two to make sure everything was ok.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time using this house during our stay. It was updated, clean and big enough for our family of eight. Cliff was very responsive with the few questions we had. If driving, request a parking permit prior to your arrival. We did that, and it was on the table when we arrived.

We always felt safe and walked to a variety of markets for groceries that were only a few blocks away.

Even though we had a car, we parked it on the street and walked everywhere. Make sure you have comfortable shoes. While the Capitol is only a few blocks away, the other sites are a minimum 20-minute walk.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time in the city. House is only a few blocks from Mall, Union Station, and terrific Capitol Hill restaurants. The home is not fancy, but roomy, clean, simple and plenty comfortable. Has a lot of the old, original touches. Some are cool and charming, but the floors creak (of course!). We're a family of five and we loved it. Highly recommended.

OK stay, extras would be nice

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in another rental house in capital hill. We know the space is limited in the area and the room arrangements are not always ideal, and you can't change that. However, the rental company/owners did not provide any of the toiletries/coffee/breakfast items that others do. It's not a very personalized/guest-friendly touch. They also had a long list of several check-in/check-out rules and were very specific about doing the laundry, running the dishwasher, etc. But when we arrived, the laundry was thrown on the bed and there was still some in the dryer. The plant in the front was dried and dying, and the "fold out" couch was not a typical foldout and smaller than advertised. I would think that for all of the "rules" they impose on the guests and the rate they charge they would at least make sure everything is in good condition for guest arrival.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. We make it very clear that we do not provide food or toiletries. This is not a bed and breakfast. The very long list of items to do upon check out: run dishwasher, wash towels and lock door. Not very long, most people do it because it is the right thing to do. The couch is advertised as a fold out couch nothing more. This house is a great value, next time you are in town be sure to rent 2 hotel rooms a couple of blocks to the capitol!
