About John Ayers

I have lived in the Washington, DC area for most of my life. Our family now lives on a farm outside DC in Virginia.

John Ayers purchased this apartment in 2005

Why John Ayers chose Georgetown

I have a few properties in Georgetown but this is my favorite. We now live on a farm outside the city but use this apartment to enjoy being in DC. The apartment is close to everything in Georgetown and the sights in DC.

What makes this apartment unique

The townhouse reflects the classic era of the late 1800s with huge, soaring windows, high ceilings and a sense of grandeur. This corner top-floor apartment gets amazing light from floor to ceiling windows and Eastern and Southern exposures. The back terrace and balconies allow you to enjoy being outside in the middle of the city.

Quality and Light in Georgetown

  • 5 of 5

We had a full week in this lovely, well appointed apartment in the heart of Georgetown.

This light filled apartment is tastefully furnished with a very comfortable bed in large bedroom. The rooms are large and airy including the well appointed kitchen.

The apartment was very clean and well maintained.

I loved the view of the streets from the apartment windows.

Up three flights of stairs there is no lift but this wasn't a problem for us.

A couple of blocks away are lots of great cafes, restaurants and bars.

We spent most of our time in Georgetown as this is where the best places to eat are located. We spent a lot of time walking around the streets and there are some lovely gardens to visit within an easy walk.

There is a nice walk to the university and down to the river and plenty of places to buy food.

My partner and I often rent apartments in different locations around the world and this is one is now in the top 2. We would definitely come back next time we are in Washington.

Thanks to the owner John, for his help while we were there. John was easily contactable during our stay

Perfect Location in Georgetown

  • 5 of 5

Located a few blocks from Wisconsin Ave, a few blocks from M street and about a 15 minute walk to Georgetown University this penthouse is perfect for a Georgetown stay. The penthouse was well appointed. John was quick to respond to all inquiries and had great suggestions for restaurants, shops and grocery stores nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location and ggorgeous townhome in Georgetown!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the the penthouse in Georgetown for two nights. Great location within in walking distance to numerous restaurants, grocery stores and site seeing. Also close to all of the DC sites but yet far enough away to have a retreat at the end of the day. We loved sitting on the back deck having a glass of wine and looking at the great views of the city.

Kitchen is very well appointed and had most spices etc to cook a quick meal. Apartment has been recently updated and it shows. Great colors and appointments Wonderful environment and very peaceful. Also very quiet for being in a big city.

John was a very responsive and wonderful host. He let us check in a bit early and check out late which we really appreciated. And he was very responsive to all questions.

We will most definitely be staying at this unit next time we are in DC.

Phenomenal location, modern decor and very clean

  • 5 of 5

This spot was perfection for a week stay in Georgetown for me to work and my teens to explore the area. Closeby everything, walking distance to shops and great restaurants. Quick uber rides to all the DC monuments and museums. John was great to work with, very responsive and pragmatic when we had a fire alarm issue too! Overall exceptional - would definitely stay here again. Kinda wish I could live here :)
