About Roger Caron

Raised in south Florida, I now reside in northern Virginia and work in the aviation business.

Roger Caron purchased this condo in 1980

Why Roger Caron chose Washington

This condo was purchased for its prime location and investment opportunities. This is 'the heart' of the city. Take a cab, rent a bike, walk or Metro anywhere.

What makes this condo unique

When not rented, I myself stay at this location to enjoy all that the city life of Washington DC has to offer.

Great apt and location

  • 5 of 5

The apt set up was good, we liked having a full kitchen. The sofa bed in the living room could be updated though. It was an easy walk to the grocery store and it was easy sightseeing from there.

close to everything

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? Roger our host met us at the front desk and let us stow our luggage at the apartment even though we arrived before check in. He provided us with directions and phone numbers, and was available if we had questions. The apartment was clean and well appointed with plenty of bedding and towels. We enjoyed the beautiful rooftop patio at the end of each day of exploring. The only suggestion I would make is more ice cube trays for cocktails :)

Great location, has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for ten days in June. The apartment is in a great location - close to Wholefoods, Safeway and any number of restaurants, plus close to Dupont Circle Metro and a walk to the White House. It is furnished with everything I needed, including cooking pans etc which I made good use of. The decor isn't modern but it is comfortable. And the airconditioning was a real blessing. Roger is very helpful, he met me on arrival and called to check everything was OK.

GREAT location; good value cozy apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great location as everything is within a ten-minute walk (Safeway, CVS, the Metro, restaurants, and fast foods). The White House is just a 15-minute walk.

Apartment has everything you need for a cozy two-week stay. It was very clean and everything worked fine. The full kitchen worked out well as we ate many of our meals in the apartment. Roger is very thoughtful as he even provides a Safeway card and Safeway grocery bags and cart for your use and a couple of umbrellas (it rained several times during our stay). Even a bowl of wrapped candy was left for us. Other guests leave what they don’t use which worked out well and we did the same for those coming in after us.

Like others have commented – it’s all good except the bed. It really is too small for two adults. The bedroom is small but a Queen bed would fit. The bedroom has no closet – all clothes storage is just off the bathroom on the other side of the living room which is not indicated in the photo. Not the owner’s fault; that’s just the way it was built.

The employees at The Boston House were extremely friendly and helpful.

One traveler mentioned the worn sofa and chair and she was right. Perhaps Roger will update that before our next trip to DC! Although we never got to meet him in person, Roger was very responsive and offered many suggestions to help us get around DC.

Good value! We’d definitely stay there again if Roger promises a larger bed! :)

Boston House

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Apt. was quiet and clean, the kitchen well equipped. Safeway is a few blocks away and the metro is 3 blocks. Very convenient. Dupont Circle is trendy, with a lot of good restaurants. Phillips Museum close by and a place not to be miss.
