About the property

Spacious Inviting 3BR + Den + 3 BA Home . Best Amenities

Our lovely Washington DC home has received nothing but glowing reviews since we began renting it. Over and over again, our guests comment on how spacious, convenient, and inviting it is—not to mention the warm welcome they received upon arrival!

Taking advantage of the end of the year (2014), we proceeded to totally renovate the house so as to keep it new.

Perfect for families or other groups, the two-story, three-bedroom house is truly a “home away from home.” Start each day with a fresh cup of coffee and home-cooked breakfast, which you can enjoy in one of two dining areas or on the front porch overlooking the garden. Then spend the rest of the day exploring Georgetown, one of downtown D.C.’s world-renowned museums, Silver Spring, Arlington—all of which are only minutes away by car. After sightseeing, return home to the comfort and privacy of your rental and watch a movie together on the 50-inch HDTV.

All three bedrooms are located on the second floor, including the spacious master suite, which comes with a queen-size bed, full bath, and a private sitting room. The larger guest bedroom also has a queen-size bed. The 3rd guest bedroom has a full-sizek bed. The two guest bedrooms share a bathroom, and there is a third full bathroom located downstairs.

The kitchen is equipped with high-quality appliances and a full set of dishes, and we've included all the linens and soap you might need. You’ll also find a library of books, and more. Fast Internet and cable TV.

Finally and if you filter for the number,variety and quality of amenities, you will realize it is unique. The proximity to everything, the beauty and comfort, the convenience, the remarkable number of amenities, as well as a perfect family caring service, make it the perfect place to stay at.

Awesome is All I Can Say!!!

  • 5 of 5

My grown children and I were in DC for an interment ceremony at Arlington for their Dad. We stayed a full week to enjoy the sights and Adam's house made our stay absolutely awesome. It is a large, roomy place with plenty of space for all of us. Six of us stayed there for the week using 4 sleeping areas and we had visitors, as well. It was wonderful to come home after a long day of sight-seeing, fix a family meal just like home, and kick back and relax. We made full use of and enjoyed the cable TV, internet access, a beautiful electric fireplace, and a relaxing jacuzzi tub. We spent time on the front porch visiting with Adam, enjoying interchanges with the neighbors, and watching the neighborhood life in action. My kids arrived first and were a little skeptical about the neighborhood when they drove around. However, that was an unsubstantiated concern. Everyone was very friendly and it felt as comfortable as home after being there a couple of days. While we had a car, there was adequate bus stops to the Metro available if we had chosen to use them. Adam was a most gracious host, calling to check-in with us almost daily, responding to all my requests immediately, visiting with us each time we were on the porch, made a trip to the store around the corner for us, and even accepted our invitation to join us for a cookout one evening. I would highly recommend this home and hostess to everyone; and I would definitely stay there on any return visit to DC. Thank You, Adam.

A wonderful week in DC

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say what a wonderful week my family and myself had in DC, partly because of Adam's house. What a wonderful place to stay. Clean, emaculate, top-notch accommodations. Plenty of room for everyone. It was very nice to be able to come back there at the end of a long site-seeing day in DC, and be able to cook a nice dinner just like at home and kick the shoes off and relax. We could not of been more happy with the place and the location. Your host, Adam, sees to EVERYTHING you could possibly ask for, and then some. I have already reccommended his house to others I work with.

Thanks Adam,

Great place with lots of space - Kitchen had everything - Loved the dishwasher, washer, & dryer

  • 5 of 5

Adam was super helpful.

He responded very quickly to texts (never longer than a few hours).

He went out of his way to purchase WMATA bus passes for my group.

The 3 bedrooms each had a nice queen sized bed, along with 4 single sized mattresses for the floor. So everyone in our group (7 colleagues visiting DC for a conference) had a place to sleep.

There was also two big couches, where an additional friend stayed for one night.

Very positive experience.

Also loved the key code for the back door, made it very easy for all of us to come and go as we pleased.

Internet was fast and reliable.

5/5 Loved it. Would stay again!

Comfortable and spacious house. Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Washington DC for a vacation with our two elementary schools aged children and my mother in law. The house was very nice for our family. It was clean and spacious and well equipped. Plenty of room for each of us to relax in the evening after a long day of sightseeing. Adam the owner was very helpful and answered all of our questions. We enjoyed our stay.

affordable and good location

  • 4 of 5

The property's real asset is the owner, Adam. He was welcoming and helpful and went out of his way to ensure our trip was smooth. The property is about 20 mins to Arlington National Cemetery and the Georgetown area. And depending which part of DC you're trying to visit, it is about 20-40 mins to visit the zoo, monuments, and museums. Traffic isn't too bad but you can expect to add 10-20 mins as you head into the DC metro area.

One of the bonuses about the home was the driveway. It was great not having to worry about finding parking no matter what time we returned to the house. However, if you are coming with a larger car, such as a minivan or large SUV, parking may be a little challenging pulling in and out as the driveway is narrow. Another perk was the washer and dryer which was really convenient for us as we had 3 young children. It is also close by to a Walmart so if you needed anything you can make a quick run out.

All in all, it was a great stay and would return to stay again!

Kind host, decent place

  • 4 of 5

As others have noted, Adam is an attentive and kind host. The house was generally comfortable and a good home base for our family of 5 during our stay in DC. Beds were comfortable and showers were hot. The only notable negative was the kitchen. While we're not gourmet chefs, we often cook simple meals for our family while on vacation (one of the reasons we rent houses rather than stay in hotels), but this was a little challenging here. Two of the four burner knobs were broken, making it difficult or impossible to operate half the stove. The knives wouldn't cut hot butter, let alone an onion, and there was a paucity of basics like a cutting board or baking sheets/pans. If the kitchen were stocked a bit better, I would have no complaints about this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Amy, Thank you for your nice comments. As to the kitchen, I wish you told me while you were there, I would have corrected it immediately. As to the knob, it was immediately ordered and replaced. The most important is that everything is fine now. Thank you for leaving the house clean though !!!! Yours truly, Adam you
