Great DC place close to the zoo.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay and served us well. We had 5 adults stay for a few days and we really enjoyed walking to the zoo. It had all the amenities we needed and was in a good neighborhood. Would stay here again.

Great location, good place for a group

My family stayed here while visiting us in dc. The house was clean and well maintained, and the location was very convenient for them. Perfect option for a group visiting Mt. P!

Clean and quiet!

So close to the zoo and a great walk to the metro. Everything was clean and ready for us as promised. Easy to Uber back and forth into the middle of the city. Great stay!

Not as good as the Description made it seem

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights with our family of 5. We were disappointed in our stay. There was a lot of noise during the night from the street and from the neighbors all around the property (even behind the home). The 3 bedroom property has one TV in the living room with limited channels. It has limited towels and old and very inexpensive furniture and furnishings. The pictures on the listing are somewhat misleading. The two larger beds were very uncomfortable and hard and difficult to sleep in. When we had to wash towels after the first round of showers, we noticed a sign stating no laundry to be done after 9pm, which is tough after a full day of touring the city. We found ourselves re-using day after day the low quantity of towels and wash rags. Also, I’m not sure where one could buy such thin and cheap toilet paper that was in all these bathrooms. We had to first thing drive to buy some better TP. There are no restaurants or grocery stores within walking distance with small children. We enjoyed DC but are not likely to stay here again.

Owner's Response: This review is a retaliation at the noise complain filed at this guest by our neighbor. None of the review notes are factual or true. Our past guests left factual reviews that reflect the high quality of our accommodation and the central and quiet neighborhood, 11 min walk to metro and shops/restaurants (also easy to check on google map). The note on laundry room asked for COURTESY to use it before 9pm, as it's a huge industrial size and very expensive facility, that can be overheard at night. No prohibition to use laundry facility ever existed at our property ! Some people expect new release Italian leather sofas and 800GSM towels at rental properties, with location across the White House, but only want to pay a few hundred/night. No host can ever make such a guest happy. We can recommend checking out Trump Hotel rates for these expectations, or be reasonable.

Clean, well-furnished, and in great location. Perfect for extended family, kids, etc.

  • 5 of 5

6 adults and 4 kids stayed for a family wedding. The house had plenty of space and kitchen furnishIngs for meals, but also close to good restaurants, etc. We had a great stay, and used a mix of Metro, Lyft, and walking to get around.

Immaculate and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Everything was clean and the kitchen had all that we needed. Beautiful home. Wifi and cable worked perfectly. Plenty of room for 2 adults, 2 teens, 2 little boys. One of our group had a broken ankle so the metro was not accessible for us--be aware if you have mobility issues the metro stops are about a 15-20 minute walk. Lyft or taxis downtown ran us about $20-25 for our group of 6.
