Inviting house in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My co-workers and I stay at this house annually for our company event. The house accommodates large groups and was very clean upon our arrival. The hot tub works wonderfully. The pool was clean but we did not use it. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, and everything you need for the fully functioning grill outside. At the time of our stay there was a Keurig Coffee Maker. The washer and dryer downstairs also worked great during our week stay.

The host was very gracious in allowing us to add an additional night leading up to our stay. We received many packages for our company event during our stay, and it was not a problem since we informed the host. There is a long driveway to park 1-2 cars, but also plenty of street parking. Lots of restaurants, relaxed bars, and grocery stores around the area. I highly recommend this property.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely and Dave's photos were like a nice exhibit. We enjoyed the easy metro DC trips, playing with the dogs in the park, downtown Del Ray pubs and the home cooked family dinners.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family! We loved being able to walk to restaurants and shops - best location. David was amazing at providing us with info about the metro, nearby stores, and restaurants. The house was beautiful! The pool was the icing on the cake. Could not have had a better experience!!!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! Beautiful kitchen, plenty of space to spread out and a gorgeous back yard equipped with a pool and hottub. Great location. Easy walk to Del Ray area and lovely, long walk to Old Town. Relatively close to the Metro if planning on heading into the city. The house is equipped with all the basics and lots of extras! David was friendly, responsive and helpful! I highly recommend this home!

Great overflow house!

  • 5 of 5

We have used David's house for overflow family guests three times now. We live only a few blocks away in Del Ray in a small house (1200 sq. ft.) so anytime we have more than one or two guests, we think of David's amazing, beautiful house. Twice we have rented the house for our relatives who were in town for high school graduations, once for Xmas guests. It is such a relief to have our family sleep comfortably in their own space--and within easy walking distance of our house. Plus, the backyard and pool were great for the spring/summer rentals!

Everything is well-kept, clean and beautiful. David is super easy to work with.

The house and yard are beautifully kept. Fell in love with the neighborhood. Great for going for a run or just a nice long walk. Wonderful restaurants close by and the metro just a short walk. David was extremely hospitable and helpful. Would highly recommend this house.
