About Nancy C. Irigoyen

I have retired from the Organization of American States and I am enjoying my retirement managing my rental properties. I am delighted welcoming and meeting interesting guests from all over the US and the world. I make sure that my guests will not miss home and that their vacations will be memorable ones. I have downsized and my husband and I live two blocks away from our rental property, I am a phone call away to help my guests in case they need my assistance.

Nancy C. Irigoyen purchased this house in 2003

Why Nancy C. Irigoyen chose Annandale

I went to college in New York City and moved to work in Washington, DC. I lived in Virginia since 1971 and fell in love with the wooded areas of Falls Church. I bought a small house in the Sleepy Hollow Woods area and passed by the White House every day waiting for the owner to sell it. I finally bought it in 2003. We fully renovated it in 2014 and had enjoyed it for 12 years. After my retirement, we decided to downsize and now my husband and I live two blocks away in our small first house. I m also a part time translator and painting artist. My office and studio are located in the basement of the rental house. When the house is rented I only come to water my plants in the outside gradens and I visit my office and studio when guests are not present.

We love our White House! It is unique and we tresure our memories living in it. It will be hard to sell it! Fortunately, we found the best alternative to keep it by renting it to guests who will enjoy it and appreciate it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Guests will enjoy the closeness to Washington, DC. The White House is located in Falls Church, Virginia, in an elegant and quiet place known as Barcroft Woods, which is full of big trees and flowers in the spring and summer. The entire two levels of house are spacious and full of natural light. For art lovers, the house has a permanent gallery with an exhibition of my paintings and from other artists from over the world. The furniture pieces of the house are antiques from Europe. As per the 2015, 2016 and 2017, reviews posted by our guests, about the White House facilities and the services provided were continuously rated as a Five Star Rental Property.

A wonderful place for a family gathering with a warm and welcoming hostess.

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are lovely and the beds and linens very comfortable. The kitchen is a great place to cook and to gather. This was our second trip to the White House and likely not our last. Easy to get in and out of D.C. and the airport. I would highly recommend working with Nancy and renting her property.

Home away from home during the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several properties through HomeAway and renting the White House was by far the best experience! Nancy was an exceptional host and thought of everything...from comfortable beds and linens to high quality appliances and cookware. The house was very clean and fully stocked when we arrived. We had plenty of soap, detergents, plates and glassware. The fresh, decorated Christmas tree and poinsettias were an exceptional touch as we were in VA visiting family for Christmas. It was a joy to entertain our family in the White House. We are grateful for the memories and highly recommend this property!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Your attention to detail in making us feel at home was very much appreciated. The state of the art kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed to prepare a nice Thanksgiving meal. I would highly recommend this home for families visiting the DC area. Thank you Nancy!

Property is Famulous

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained, kitchen is a cooks dream and views are amazing. We hosted our grandson's baptism with four (4) generations and the party was a great time because the home Is designed to entertain and enjoy. The home is also a dream to experience because the art work and furniture is a walk in a wonderful collection of eye candy that tells a story. Our host, owner, could not have been more generous and kind. THANK YOU NANCY, you are the best VRBO I have rented to date and hope to return, again.

Your compliments are music to my ears and will just make me a better host in the hospitality business. I will always welcome you, and please comeback soon. You were magnificent guests!!!

Second time, as good as the first!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the "White House" and it was as perfect as the first. The home is beautiful, spacious and built for relaxing and entertaining. If you're a cook, you'll love the gourmet kitchen. The home is also great for all ages.

We will be back next year for a third visit!

Comfortable, well-equipped home has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a multi-generational party of 8 family members, 3 couples and 2 small children, and the house worked very well for our needs. The house has plenty of room to accommodate a group of that size; there were plenty of house keys, easy access to the wifi, and a big flat screen. The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped with top of the line appliances and gadgets, from the Viking range, gas and electric ovens, to the latest Cuisinart, and is stocked with all of the basics you need. If you like to cook, you will not be disappointed! The eat-in kitchen is bright and airy, with lovely garden views, counter seating for 4, table seating for 8, plus a garden deck with BBQ and outdoor tables. There is a lovely garden that was full of peonies in bloom and Nancy encouraged us to pick and enjoy - which we did!

The bedrooms are well-equipped with good linens and comforters; baths were well-equipped with quality towels, good water flow and plenty of hot water. We were there for a heat wave of record temps, and were pleased that the A/C works!

We were visiting for a family wedding in Arlington, and the location worked for us to access all of the week's festivities, plus easy access to DC museums, zoo, and nearby parks for the children.

The house is more of an adult retreat, so we did a bit of "baby-proofing" on arrival, moving some pieces out of harm's way to make the space safer for the children and for Nancy's collections. Nancy was extremely accommodating in every way. We would rent it again!
