Georgetown Carriage House with Parking
average rating of 4.625 based on 16 reviews


  • 5 of 5

In DC for sons Suzuki Institute and found the carriage house perfection. Two blocks away from the bus stop, we did not need our car the entire week. Easy to get from bus to Metro and then everywhere you want to go in Washington. A parking spot in this area of Georgetown is a definite plus! Small kitchen, but has everything you need to make a meal, with nice, clean appliances. Safeway as well as Whole Foods is close for groceries. Or just walk out your door to a number of wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed the lovely, petite courtyard for breakfast, and it gives the house more light and a charming feel to the interior.

Bob, the owner, was also quick to answer questions and give very helpful advice! We hope to return again next June. Highly recommend a stay at the carriage house.

Excellent Stay!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 7 year old daughter and I returned from an overseas posting to stay in the carriage house for 5 days. It was perfect. The house was small but what one would expect from a carriage house and it fit our needs without fail. We didn't cook at all but many many restaurants within 5-10 minute walk. The patio was lovely for coffee in the morning and dinner at night. My husband and daughter walked to the metro one day to go the national mall and planned on walking to the zoo, but were rained out. A/C was not really needed due to ceiling fans and mild weather, regardless good to know there if required. Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing pets. Ours stayed in their kennel most of the time and were comfortable but enjoyed sunning on the patio when we were home. The internet worked well, which was a requirement and the beds were comfortable. We would stay here again without hesitation!

Perfect spot in Washington DC

  • 5 of 5

This was the last stop on our vacation ... covering 5 east coast cities --- and this VRBO was the best!! The Carriage home was perfect for our needs. Location - 20 minutes to White House area, 5 minutes to Georgetown shopping and restaurants, 15 minutes to airport. The House had everything, including full A/C which was great in the 95 degree weather. The pictures as shown are exactly what you get. The owner bent over backwards for us (we locked ourselves out and he brought a 3rd key on Father's day), we could not be happier with this property. A fully stocked kitchen with gas stove works for all meals and a Safeway 5 minutes away. We have travelled extensively and this ranks very high with us. Should we comeback through Washington this is our place to stay!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little carriage house. It had everything in it that you would need plus it was an easy walk to the bus and to Safeway. The air conditioning was a blessing after a day of sightseeing in steamy weather. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the carriage house.

Another great vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd year to stay in this wonderful carriage house and like last year everything was great. This is a really special place in a great location for a visit to Washington. Bob, the owner, has everything you need in the house for a comfortable stay, and he is always nearby to answer any questions you might have about the house or the area. I can highly recommend this place as a home away from home in the Washington area.

Highly recommended.

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location, charming little house, convenient neighborhood, helpful, cooperative, and accommodating owner. Very convenient for no car, if one does not mind walking a little on occasion. Stone's throw from bus stop. Would use again without hesitation except for temporary construction noise immediately behind property, meaning early noise during our stay, hence four stars rather than five. Owners plans to address issue, will request that noisy tile saw be located farther from Carriage House.
