Hello,
We loved the home! It provided a beautiful view and was so convenient to the metro and even a grocery store. I was anxious about coming because i had never rented a home from the web. (we usually stay in hotels in d.C.) however, it was a rewarding experience. It was just what we needed. I never said anything before but our son passed away on november 13th. We needed to get away for christmas, and your home was a gift.
Thank you,
Judy
