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.

Perfect location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We've used VRBO many times and this property is in our top 3. We have two dogs, that cannot be boarded or left at home, so we always book pet friendly homes. It's usually hit or miss b/c of this requirement.

This home is very clean, well appointed, beautifully decorated, well maintained and boasts a well landscaped yard. Plus, the yard is fully fenced, which is a bonus. Many homes say they are fully fenced/secure, but we've found this to be untrue, most of the time.

We enjoyed the large front porch and the close proximity to local shops and restaurants. We especially appreciated the location b/c it's near a metro stop and only 5 miles to D.C., a quick and affordable UBER ride if you choose.

Finally, Dave, the owner, is great! He greeted us upon arrival to show us the house and had a bottle of wine waiting. We would definitely recommend this home.

Quiet, comfortable, clean.

  • 5 of 5

First impression is the fabulous porch where you can sit rain or shine and enjoy the hammock or a drink and a good conversation. Inside has great colors and beautiful photographs by the owner. Kitchen has everything and is a cooks kitchen. Very clean and attention to detail. Back yard has very large pool, hot tub and privacy. Just a short walk to a row of restaurants and minutes to Old Town. You hear an occasional train otherwise it feels like any beautuful small town in America with birds and quiet residential street. Lots of parking in driveway and on street. Owner very responsive.

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.
