About Allen

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 house in 2012

Why Allen chose Washington

This is a unique house. At one point it was an art gallery and exhibit house. Huge ceilings and wide open living room, kitchen and dining room makes this house quite unique. Not to mention the huge yard.

The location and accommodations were great for our needs (13 people).

  • 4 of 5

We had a small issue with pull out bed but Allen fixed it the very next day. Grocery store is within walking distance and owner provided shopping cart with wheels which was very convenient. We also appreciated the parking for two vehicles. Note the pull out beds can really only accommodate 1 person each due to the type of sofa bed it is.

It was a great experience, Allen has a beautiful and clean home near many attractions!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a conference at the convention center which was not far from the house but we would only a few minutes drive from most things we wanted to do. The house is big and spacious, it worked well for our big group of adult that came to the conference. Thanks for everything!!

Perfect location and home for our large family group

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for my large group of 14 and they just trusted me.. Well, they were beyond pleased with the accommodations, the beauty of the home, location, cleanliness, comfort, etc. Both adults and the kids.

The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable.. The home came well equipped for our large family breakfasts each day with lots of pans, bowls, dishes, etc. We were able to get Uber rides to the Smithsonian, Capitol and Monuments for around $8. each (we needed 3). The bus stop is located on the side of the house so we took that one day as well.. just for fun. We also went to Georgetown, Georgetown Harbor (Potomac boat ride to Alexandria), Mt. Vernon and several different dining locations.. There is a really great array of restaurants to choose from starting about 4 blocks away.. The grocery store is also in walking distance.

The owner was unbelievably prompt when I asked him anything, including recommendations.

My husband and brother in law wished there were televisions in the bedrooms but I was secretly pleased there were none. :)

Also, large jet bath near back bedroom was phenomenal after a day of walking.

When we go back, we will stay here.

Another Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year renting Allen's 4 bedroom townhome for our family reunion. We love that the dining room table accommodates us all! We especially love the yard which is where we all congregate when we are at the house and not touring D.C. We also rent the apartment downstairs for the "adult" children. It was another great stay at Allen's property and we look forward to coming back next year!
