Beautiful and great location

  • 5 of 5

I loved this beautiful and historic early 1900s home both inside and out. I rented this place for my cousins as we live in the area and we had a birthday celebration there too. The interior is contemporary, modern, and clean. Each bedroom is spacious and the master bath is gorgeous. The kitchen was well stocked. An impressive place to entertain and stay.

The backyard is an oasis complete with lush landscape, a pool, and Jacuzzi. This house is a hidden gem and amazing value for the price!

The location is perfect being five minutes away from Washington National Reagan airport, five miles to D.C., two blocks from the bus that goes to the metro, two blocks from the grocery store, and a block from restaurants and coffee shops. The house was featured on the Del Ray Home and Garden tour and on national television.

Dave was such a gracious, friendly, helpful, and thoughtful host. Everything was perfect-the stay, the house, the location, and the host. Highly, highly recommend!

Great, peaceful stay in Del Ray

  • 5 of 5

Dave's house is wonderful. Unfortunately it rained our whole stay so we didn't get to enjoy the pool, but his house is so pleasant it was a restful staycation for us nonetheless. Perfect location with very short walk to all of the great restaurants and coffee in Del Ray.

Charming place, great location and pool garden!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay. Have never seen such a well equipped kitchen. Would have loved to spend more time lounging around the garden and pool which is beautifully landscaped.Easy walking distance to cafes, shops and the weekend farmer's Market.

A charming place to stay when in Virginia.

The perfect base from which to explore Washington DC

  • 5 of 5

A great location, with local shops and restaurants but also close to the metro to get easily into DC. David was friendly and helpful but not obtrusive in any way. He was on hand to help after a power cut.

The pool and spa were a bit hit with my two boys ( 10 & 15) and the house was plenty big enough to ensure that we all had our own space to relax. The property is fully equipped with everything you need for a great vacation. A real home away from home. We would definitely stay again if in the DC area.
