  • Dream home


    The house was amazing just as listed and the

    Communication was great. This was a family trip and the city was amazing.

    We had a family emergency that everyone couldn’t stay but those that did made the best of it.

    The house definitely served it’s purpose.

  • Above and beyond!


    Highly recommend this home!

    Spacious, clean, very comfortable beds, kitchen had everything we needed, fun game room and huge tv for kids downstairs, and very responsive hospitable host!

    Two families with four adults and six kids (ages 10 - 14) stayed for a week. Location was very convenient for sightseeing. Quiet neighborhood.

    Our families have been traveling together for years and we have stayed in many different rental homes. This DC home is one of the best! You won’t be disappointed.

    STAY AWAY! Home looks beautiful but the owner is a pain. Constantly texted me every single day while I was there on vacation with my family. He was always watching my every move which felt awkward and weird. He would text me in the middle of the night asking me why the garage door isn’t closed all the way. The home had lots of issues such as master bathroom door not locking, no air conditioning for top floor, broken pieces at pool table, broken bath tub handles in master bath, uneven bathroom door, and electrical outlets missing covers. The dishwashing soap and handwashing soap was watered down to the max. Shortly after checking out, he texts me about broken parts on the pool table which were already there. This is only part of the list. He constantly hassled me for a good review. He also came by to open the mail while peaking on us. He also texted me his exterminator was coming and the backyard was off-limits for two hours. So much inconveniences for the amount of money I paid. If you want to feel on edge on your vacation, this would be the home. If you want to enjoy your vacation in peace, STAY AWAY. I’ve never ever been treated in such a disgusting way. I hope no other families experience this. We traveled with two little ones and I hated for them to witness this. This review would actually be a zero star review if possible.

    Hi Mai, we’re sorry to hear your stay did not meet your expectations. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - It was never our intention to make you feel uncomfortable during your stay. We do request that the garage door remain closed in the evening, and we were merely reaching out to ensure this was done. In addition, due to our mail is delivered to the property, we check and pick it up daily, sorry if this was an inconvenience for you.
    - Prior to your stay, the property was inspected as it is before each guest's stay, and no issues or items were found broken during that inspection.
    - Our home is treated on a regular basis as a precautionary measure and as a courtesy wanted to make you aware that the pest control was coming. As part of their routine schedule, the backyard would be unavailable during this time.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.
