You’ll be located in an up-and-coming neighborhood that showcases the diversity that Washington D.C has become known for. Step through the front door and you’ll immediately notice the open and spacious floor plan, beautiful hardwood floors throughout, and tastefully-appointed furnishings. Enjoy talking with the family in the living room, or put on a favorite show and movie on the LCD flat-panel TV with cable. A beautiful fireplace completes the common area.

Just off the living room is a dining area with seating for four. Enjoy a quick breakfast before visiting D.C.’s family landmarks, or enjoy a dinner prepared in the fully-stocked kitchen. The updated kitchen includes granite countertops, stainless appliances including dishwasher and gas range, and is fully stocked with essentials including cookware, place settings, and utensils.

Your family will rest in comfort in one of three bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a Queen bed, the second bedroom has a twin daybed with trundle, and the third bedroom also has a twin bed with twin trundle.

About Karl

I am the proud parent of three awesome people. My eldest son, who's now 17 years old. Yikes! How'd that happen??? :-), and of course my twins, who are excelling in character.

I love capturing life in still form, therefore photography has been my second love for many years.

All-in-all, I believe that people are inherently good, and would like to enjoy life as much as possible. For those with whom I come in contact, I'd like to be a part of what makes your life enjoyable.

These are the qualities and priorities which defines me. Let's make your stay enjoyable.

Why Karl chose Truxton Circle

Few areas in DC truly put you this close to all of DC's attractions. This home has 2 train stops within half a mile and near-immediate access to a taxi or Uber to get you anywhere in minutes. And though our proximity to everything is a huge benefit, we've done everything to make the place feel like home.

Each bed has been covered with comfortable sheets and cozy blankets and pillows. The kitchen has modern stainless steel appliances and a full set of pots and pans to help you feel at home.

And if those things aren't enough, please let us know. We're anxious to make your stay as great as possible and earn your 5 star rating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was clean beforehand. In spite of the major discount we provided, we didn't expect our home (bedding, dinning chairs, upholstery, etc) to be destroyed. We are disappointed and hope that no other homeowner has to experience the kind of out-of-pocket expense and mental anguish that we did. Thirteen people?! That's far more than any one hotel room can accommodate.

Spacious, beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Karl's home was wonderful on all levels! Location was no more than 15 minutes away from our sightseeing stops, home itself was beautiful and comfortable, perfect amount of space for two small families like ours (4 adults, 3 children ages 7, 8, and 9). Nothing too fragile in the home to make us concerned about having our kiddos there. Towels and clean linen (even robes and slippers) were provided and we felt completely at home!

Only slight challenge is parking because there's no parking in front of the home. Fortunately the home is near the corner street with a fire hydrant so we quickly parked there to load/unload. Otherwise, street parking was not so horrible - the furthest we parked was about 2 blocks away, which we felt fine with because there were plenty of folks walking around the neighborhood too.

Karl has exceptional customer service and was always responsive to emails - he has been the most engaged owner I have communicated with while renting vacation homes.

Karl, many thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us - we will definitely look for your home again the next time we're back in DC!

We loved the place

  • 5 of 5

At first glance, we were concerned about bars on the front door. However, those concerns were quickly dispelled once we got inside. While there is a hint of the history of the place here and there, it has been remodeled into a current townhouse dwelling which has been tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished and fully provisioned. The Jacuzzi tub was a nice bonus. We communicated with Rasheid, Yvette and Eden (his assistants?) at various times before and during our stay. In every case, they were responsive, cordial an effective related to any issues (and we didn't really have many at all). The neighborhood felt safe, was convenient to Metro and has a number of eating establishments within a short walk. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great place for a weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 guys meet up at this house for a reunion weekend. For an older home, the house itself is very clean, up-to-date and comfortable. It has been completely renovated but still has some of the charm from it's original state. The backyard was an added bonus - we spent both evenings out there enjoying the fresh air - and it was relatively quiet. The house is right on the edge of the gentrified and less gentrified areas - to the west and south there are several bars and restaurants to choose from.

Dirty house, bad neighborhood, deceiving owner

  • 1 of 5

We had high hopes for this place upon reading through all the positive reviews. It came down to decide between 2 places and we decided to give this one a try. Well, that was our first mistake.

Prior to booking the rental, we had exchanged multiple emails with the owner about the number of guests we have, and was assured that there would not be any problems fitting everyone… that turned out to be our 2nd mistake. The owner lied!

The property is located in a rather unsafe neighborhood with some “interesting” neighbors. We did not feel safe walking alone from the street parking to the property. The inside was very dirty and the pull out futons looked like they haven’t been cleaned/used in over 10 years with disgusting stains. I won’t go into the details, but you get the picture. The air mattress provided never worked. In fact, it leaked air and flattened to the ground within 1hr. We were subsequently charged $200 for the “breaking the air mattress” when it never worked and the owner sent us a hand-pumped $30 mattress a day later, unwillingly. Luckily we brought our own 2 air mattress with us for the trip, that saved us from looking for an hotel right away!

Back to the dirty house – there were dirty dishes in the dish washer, so the first thing we did was to run the dish washer. (That makes you feel like back at home, doesn’t it?) We tried to look for a vacuum cleaner, but couldn’t locate one. Tried to talk to the owner, who had already started refusing to take our calls at this point. Long story short, we never was able to vacuum the dirty carpet.

The next morning, we were woken up by loud pounding and drilled on our floor, coming from the basement. Turned out, owner was doing renovation work on the basement ceiling. The general contractor said curiously, “why are you guys here? They are not supposed to rent out the during this time and they know it!” I’m sure our honest owner just happened to forget this little detail.

In the end, the owner happily took our money, charged us $200 for the “broken air mattress” that never worked in the first place, refused to talk to us starting day 2 of our 4-day stay. Also don’t bother try to do an exit walk-through with the owner, because they won’t show nor care. They will just happily charge you for whatever they feel like to from your deposit. I have personally never met such dishonest business owner – what a shame. So renters be alert, don’t even think about getting close to this place. What a scam!
