The redhead next to me is my wife Ana. We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much. I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.
Allen purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Allen chose Truxton Circle
This is a unique apartment. We gutted out the old house and redid the entire house including the lower floor. Everything you see here is less than a year old and it is designed with great care, taste and quality.
What makes this Townhome unique
There are tons of shops, restaurants, and bars to go to that are in walking distance to the unit. There is also a grocery store (Giant Foods) down the street from the unit (7 minute walk).

Very clean home. Great kitchen, plenty of room for larger groups. Perfect location if you need downtown.
Beautiful home...not an ideal location
The home is lovely, it’s appointed for a rental so you will feel like you are in a rental property. The configuration is 3 large bedrooms and one small room with a twin and trundle. It doesn’t sleep ten (not that we had ten) it sleeps 8 at most. Two bathrooms upstairs and a full downstairs. We used this home for a corporate retreat and found the location in DC a little less desirable than our other choices, beside a school and it was fairly loud on the front part of the house. The house was just as it appears in photos. I’m not sure if this is a VRBO requirement or an owner choice but I didn’t like that we had to pay in full a month before arrival. We would choose a more luxurious spot for our next retreat. Owner was responsive and nice prior, we didn’t need anything while we were on site.
Great family gathering place
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The townhouse was perfect for our family Thanksgiving gathering. There were six of us - 5 adults and 1 child. The space was perfect for us-lots of room, comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen, convenient to stores and restaurants and transportation. We will consider the space again the next time we come to D.C.
The place was awesome, very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. It was very convenient for our group going to the convention center.
Allen was an excellent host and was immediately available for anything that came up
Would highly recommend
Worked great for our family event
We were joined by four of our adult kids for a family event in DC. This rental worked out great for us. Allen, the owner, was there when we arrived and gave us the tour. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well equipped, plenty of room for six adults. The neighborhood is transitional but definitely on the way up. We had zero problems. Shaw, the neighborhood it's in is home to some of the best new dining in DC and a short drive to the big DC attractions. Giant grocery store is a few blocks walk away.
close to National Mall but needs TLC
Good for families, close to all sightseeing. Needs better care. bedrm with twin bed has light controls in master bdrm. Floors in kitchen were sticky, area rugs need cleaning, towels felt like loofa pads, needs new bed pillows, WiFi kept turning off. Would not recommend being out in neighborhood after dark.
Gloria and her group were nice people. She couldn't find the light switch for a room where there are two switches, Couldn't find the towels (20 of them some brand new Tommy Hilfiger) and messed around with the internet router until she disabled it. All I had to do was to restart it. We change the pillows every two seasons. She never mentioned any of this so I could explain, show, demonstrate or fix them.
The comment about the neighborhood is not correct and doesn't align with the views of all the other guests who stayed here before. There are folks jogging at all times of day and night where there has never been a security issues for any our guests since when we have been here (2010). Please read the reviews.
It has been an unusually damp month with humidity at 90%-98% which contributes to all things feeling sticky. I do understand that they are from a dry area in California so not used to humidity in DC.
On departure, Gloria forgot her bag on the sidewalk when she left in a vehicle. Luckily I arrived right after they were gone and was able to recover it and ended up shipping it to her. Hopefully at least she will give me a 5 star on that effort.
This is the first 3 star we have received on this unit and I think it was not a fair and honest one but seemed more like a frustrated review.
This unit is in between two metro stations; Shaw-Howard University & Mt. Vernon Sq/7th St Convention Center. Both are 11 minutes away from the unit. The National Mall is an 11 minute car ride (without traffic), 25 minute metro ride, and 33 minute walk. The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is an 11 minute walk to/from the unit. There is a grocery store (Giant Foods) down the street from the unit; roughly 7 minute walk.
