The location and home were awesome. The only negative was that we did not stay long enough! There is so much to do that we would need to go back multiple times to feel that we came close to seeing what we should. The owners were gracious and helpful and responded immediately to any text. They even provided an additional parking spot for our nephew when he stopped by for a visit. Honestly, I can't imagine finding a better location with that amount of space for anything remotely close to their rate! We 300% would recommend this place. The wharf just opened and while pricier than other areas had an awesome wonderful vibe and was only a two block walk. The free Southwest shuttle bus runs from there to the metro and National Mall. Such a nice additional benefit to an already amazing place and location.

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

4 adults and 1 young lady spent a 3 day weekend in town for a baby shower. We had a great location as the baby shower was in Georgetown-easy drive. After festivities, all of us did the easy walk from the house up to the mall and further north to the portrait gallery. Got back in the dark but felt quite safe as a group. The off street parking was the final clincher for selecting this home. Three floors gave us lots of room to spread out, visit, laugh, eat and everything else you do when family get together. Deborah was immediately accessible the one time I needed her and she had a quick solution. Would definitely come back and highly recommend to anyone looking. Also, with the new Wharf waterfront opening soon, more high end restaurants/activities are within walking distance. Have fun.

Spacious and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Deborah's place was spacious and comfy, everything that we expected and wanted for our stay in DC. Spread out across three floors, her place could easily handle a party twice the size of our four people. TVs in every bedroom were a nice touch although, frankly, we didn't use them that much. Also, the location was convenient to all the sights on the Mall and the Safeway / Metro stop are just a few blocks away. Ultimately, we ended up using taxis / Lyft because we were so close to the main monuments.

Finally, Deborah was flexible and accommodating to last minute changes in our schedules and certainly helped us enjoy our trip even more.

I would definitely stay here again and will definitely recommend to any of my friends traveling to DC!

great place, location is very close to all attractions

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place, location is very close to all attractions. We rent several locations each year and this is clean, organized, and has some of the best instructions. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond to any question we had during our stay. This must be the best valued rental in the area! Thank you.

Great location!! Nice neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

2 families stayed on a weekend visit to DC. Great layout for families to share. Easy walk to metro and close to lots of quick food options on a weekday; most were closed on the weekend.

Want pizza; recommend Flippin' Pizza on Maryland Ave. close and easy to go for take out. Burgers; Plan B Burger Bar on North side of national mall. Nice walk and good food.

TVs are not HD but you will be seeing the sites around the capital and not watching TV. However, on opening weekend of college football, HDTV would have been nice as we rested our tired feet and legs at night.

Deborah was attentive and proactively contacted us during our visit just to see if we needed anything.

We would definitely stay here again!!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved this house. The floorplan is laid out well, and there was plenty of room. The furniture and appliances were in good condition. Nice neighborhood. The location was great - short walk to the mall and metro station. The owner was very responsive to our questions, and generously let us check in earlier and check out later than stated. Would be delighted to stay here again if/when we return to DC.
