Recent Georgetown reviews

  • Little jewel in Georgetown.

    "A charming 4story townhouse that requires quite a bit of stair climbing but is worth every step. We arrived on a Wednesday evening in time to buy groceries at the farmers market half a block away. We were 2 couples and the ones who drew the short straw had to sleep in the garret and run down a floor to the bath but the inconvenience was offset by the location. There's a tennis court across the street and lots of places to run (if you're a jogger). Restaurants abound in the vicinity. The metro is a half mile away, and parking requires that you take your rental contract to the police station for a temporary resident tag. But we loved being part of a simply delightful and very quiet neighborhood close to everything."

  • Great stay!

    "We had a great time staying in this town home with our 3 children, ages 10, 12 and 17. It had a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of linens and towels, and an extra air mattress if needed which could easily fit upstairs next to the twin bed. There is also plenty of storage to unpack and put the suitcases away. Very convenient short walk to Whole Foods and restaurants. We loved Burger Tap and Shake! The metro is 2 blocks away in the direction of all the action. However, we mostly walked which was really nice. It was so nice to return to the town home at the end of the day to relax and enjoy the evening!"

  • Stunning and impressive property

    "There were three couples who spent three nights on this beautiful property. Awaiting us upon arrival were beautiful fresh flowers and a bowl of fruit. The home is open and comfortable and has anything you would need to enjoy your stay. The beds were VERY comfy with top notch linens and mattresses and pillows! As another reviewer mentioned, it was hard to get up in the morning from such a comfortable bed! We did not take advantage of the outside amenities, as the weather was rainy during our stay and it was a bit muddy. But Linda was so helpful in explaining all the metro procedures for us, and having lots of literature available for things to do, restaurants, etc . We all enjoyed our stay and would go back again in a heartbeat. The couple of little things we mentioned to Linda ( one of the tubs was slow to drain and another had a loose connection on the shower door ) - she offered to come out THAT DAY to repair, but we told her we were fine to wait. That driveway is STEEP and I understood why Linda had given us some pointers on how to back down the driveway! But my husband had no trouble parking and backing us out...good thing I wasn't the driver! Thank you Linda, for a very wonderful place to stay for our little mini reunion with our friends. Btw, the lamps in this house are absolutely gorgeous!!!!"
