Great for two families

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this quirky property that was three or four blocks from the metro station, a coffee shop across the street, and located in a quiet neighborhood. Had a few insignificant issues at the beginning of rental that were addressed by Karen and Kyle immediately with a friendly efficient manner. The kitchen seemed well equipped although we only had breakfast there. Comfortable beds and great showers. Worked out well for our two families. Thanks!!

Had a great time at the firehouse!

Perfect place for two families. 7 of us altogether. 5 min walk to metro and super easy to navigate to the whole city from there. Got to the Mall in a few stops. The home had everything you needed and very comfortable. Recommend highly.

great property!!

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here with 4 teenage boys and the house was spacious and very roomy. It was a great location and set back off the main street so was nice and quiet. The house was well equipped and had plenty of towels and linens, having a washer and dryer was very handy as well. thank you for sharing your home with us!!

Superb location/Excellent accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This place absolutely was a major factor in making our journey to Washington DC so memorable. From the moment we secured the place the communication was spot on; and when we arrived on site we happened to bump into one of the owners who greeted us warmly. The home is more than the photos portray - it was wonderful. If ever we head to DC again I wouldn't hesitate to come to these folks again. If there were more than five stars I'd pick them all...!!

Thank you Kyle and Karen

location was perfect for us. Off the busy streets

  • 5 of 5

We came down to DC for a convention and this lovely rental was near enough. We loved the location of the historic LeDroit Fire Station Carriage house. it was literally an island of tranquility in the city. Plenty of space to stretch out inside and an enclosed outdoor area for the nice days. We drove down so it was nice to have a personal private parking spot. I'll look to stay here again if I'm coming down to DC
