House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)
Why Scott Lockett chose Potomac West
We bought this property in 1993 and have been renting it ever since. 17 years of happy renters! We bought because it is so close to Washington, DC.
What makes this House unique
The neighborhood is close to everything. You can walk to 15 restaurants, grocery stores, 2 pharmacies, dry cleaners, and much more. Convenient to the metro and downtown DC. A year round producers only Farmer's Market every Saturday. It's only 1/2 a block away. Urban living at its best!

Great location; House needs help
This little guest house is in the perfect location - near DC, in the heart of Del Ray. You can walk to many nice little shops and restaurants. However, the "Shed" needed some serious cleaning when we arrived. The layout was nice for a group of four and the kitchen is nicely updated. But a good deep cleaning, a few coats of paint, and new carpeting would greatly improve this little house. The back deck is small, but nice as it is private from the remainder of the yard.
We Love Del Ray
My husband, adult son, and I rented The Shed following the wedding of our oldest son in Washington DC in October 2010. We loved the convenience of walking to wonderful places like Dairy Godmother and amazing Mexican food less than 1 block away. We felt very safe walking day or night and the local people are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the private deck out back and especially loved the framed children's art work on the walls. The owners were friendly and accomodating and we would certainly recommend The Shed for couples or families. The area was quiet yet conveniently close to many shops, banking, and even a dentist! It is an easy drive from Capital Hill with more than one Metro station within easy access. The house was clean and the kitchen well appointed. We would happily rent The Shed again and highly recommend it for convenience, comfort, and safety.
Our Week at "The Shed"
My husband and I and two of our children went to Washington this past April for a week. We stayed here and had a GREAT time. The accommodations were quite comfortable. There are great restaurants within walking distance. It was quite easy for us to get in and out of the city to do our sightseeing. I would definitely stay there again, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to DC.
Fantastic Week in the Shed
I brought my daughter to DC for a conference and stayed in the shed while she was that the conference. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my stay. The house is a great size (much larger than a hotel room). It is convenient to everything and I could walk to several great restaurants. The owners and their kids are very friendly. Stay here. You won't regret it.
Although cozy, the layout...
Although cozy, the layout of this house was just what my family of seven (2 adults + 5 children) required during our one-week stay. We were very comfortable.
Communication with the homeowners, both before and during our stay, was extremely satisfactory.
While the reason for our trip was to visit D.C., the Del Rey neighborhood in which the house is located is itself a very pleasant place, with interesting shops and restaurants.
If you wish to walk to the Metro stop, it's 20-minutes at a brisk pace. My family and I did it twice a day. If you don't feel like walking you can hop on the bus that stops a half-block from the house.
