Simply satisfied

  • 3 of 5
Finding an affordable place for a large group during our DC vacation was mission impossible until we came across this property. Prior to our trip my husband Google map the area and we saw that it was located in what I'd classify as a Working Class neighborhood. So I'll be honest to say I did have a small amount of concern. But to my surprise the home has been renovated wonderfully, it's clear to see the owners really invested in this property. The metro rail was a tad bit of a distance but it wasn't too far away especially when you take in to consideration sight seeing in DC requires a lot of walking. The residential neighborhood came to our advantage when we found the local supermarket which allowed us to stock up on groceries so we could take advantage of the beautiful kitchen and the barbecue grill. I did have to do a little housekeeping before the rest of the guests arrived which required airing the place out because it smelt as if the home had been unused for a long period of time but once the air conditioner got to circulating it was all good. Definitely a great place to stay especially if you're traveling with a larger size group.

PACK YOUR KEVLAR VEST!

Let me begin by saying that I wish I would have done a little more research on the area prior to agreeing to rent this house. Although, the owner was nice enough to allow an early check in there were many flaws.
We arrived on a Friday and around 4pm decided to head to the zoo for the zoolights event. We decided to take the "conveniently located metro". It turns out that after a short walk through the ghetto to the BUS stop, we could get off the bus in Chinatown and hop on the metro train. We met a very nice man when we arrived at the bus stop who gave us directions and then proceeded to follow us likely planning a mugging (keep in mind we have 3 children with us and a pregnant woman). We might as well have had "TARGET" or "out of towners" written on our forehead. Needless to say we sought assistance took a very expensive cab home.
Saturday we went about our day doing Christmas activities and site seeing. We had a nice dinner at the house and everyone went to bed. I was awake in bed until 12:30 due to all the loud yelling and commotion outside my window as if it was 90 degrees outside and we were all at the club. I cannot imagine what this neighborhood is like in the summer time. Around 3am I was awakened to the sound of gun shots outside my window, yes GUNSHOTS! The entire night was glittered with sirens near and far. Everyone in the house was terrified, one of which suffers from anxiety and was having a panic attack in the middle of the night. My children were a nervous wreck and crying. This area is dangerous!
I will admit that the inside of this house does not match the outside neighborhood. It is a very nice dwelling at a decent price for the size, but it is not worth my life or that or my children. I would not suggest renting this house unless you do some research in regards to the surrounding area, plan to remain in doors at night, away from windows and doors for fear of being shot or if you are a hardened criminal carrying a large caliber hand gun.
Thanks for letting us stay, but we won't be back. I, also, find it very inconsiderate that you have likely deleted any negative reviews outlining the problems with the neighborhood. It is a real disservice to the unsuspecting suburban families renting your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding the DC property. I am extremely disappointed that you had such a frightening experience during your stay. I can assure you that we have never had a reported incident of violence against a guest or at the property during our 5 year rental period. As a responsible owner, I have never deleted a review of a guest experience (including your post). The reviews on the site are based on real guest experience. Washington DC is urban, vibrant, densely populated metropolitan area. We encourage you to please contact the property manager to discuss this incident further.

Great Place to Stay in DC

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much! We were in DC for our youngest daughter's wedding, so we were in and out of the house constantly coming and going. We were a large family group, and there was room for all of us. One or another of us was in the house at almost every hour of our stay, and we found it thoroughly enjoyable.
It's location on a corner was terrific, as access was extremely easy, with commodious parking off street available, and the windows the location allowed for! We loved that the house could brim with natural light, as we gathered around the large dining room table to eat or simply sit and visit, and we could sit in the sun room where the table was a perfect size for a small project or to enjoy a board game together.
We had 2 small grandchildren with us, and we were happy to find a high chair and pack and play available for use. All the appliances were in great working order, easy to use, and I think we used all of them, even the washing machine and dryer. The beds were excellent! Pillows and towels, too. A thoroughly comfortable stay was had by all.
Even though we had rented cars, some of us used the metro stop nearby, finding it easy to utilize to go sightseeing.
We chose the house due to it's proximity to our daughter's apartment, to find that it met or exceeded all our expectations for location and comfort. We hope to be able to stay there again in the future.

A PERFECT stay for ALL!

  • 5 of 5
A perfect home with more space than expected for 2 families with teenagers & babies (12, +2 babies). All the comforts of a city home in close proximity to all sightseeing in the DC area. Walk, drive or train (Metro) - you're just minutes away from it all! This area is diverse (Black, White,Latino, Asian, etc.) therefore, perfect for people of ALL cultures and backgrounds. House is located in a decent neighborhood. Very clean. Sleeping area upstairs (4 sleeping areas - can sleep 8) was very comfortable. Plenty of closet/drawer space. Sleeping area in finished basement (full futon and extra bedroom - can sleep 4) was very comfortable for the teenagers. TV's in every room. Washer/dryer was a plus. Bathrooms are very neat and clean. Storage under basement steps provided toilet paper, paper towels, blankets which were useful for the extras needed during our 4-day stay. Two driveways available for parking on property (located on side & back of house) as well as on-street parking. BUT...be careful of the time/days of on-street parking. You WILL be ticketed if parked on the street at the wrong time & day. (The guy gave us a break since we were out of towners). Check the parking signs. Towels are provided in all rooms but recommend you bring extra towels, blankets & pillows for lengthy stays and to accommodate groups of more than 10. LOVED the kitchen, dining area. Did not lack amenities. Fun was had by all. Will "definitely" return and have already recommended this place to friends and family.

Perfect Spring Break stay for family of 12+

  • 5 of 5
This home was a great place to stay with our family of 12 adults & teenagers, plus 2 babies. Everything you need to feel like a home away from home! They have a high chair and pack & play which made it easy for a mom of 2. There were plenty of rooms and sleeping space. The 2 1/2 baths also very helpful to get everyone ready on time for our daily activities. The Metro train was a short walk away and easy to get to! Take Orange line to Smithsonian stop for museums and National Mall area. Also, very easy drive down to see monuments and tidal basin area. Check out the Eastern Market when you come for plenty of restaurant choices - short 10 min drive. Will come back and stay here again without a doubt. Plenty of things to see and do and this home is very close to it.

Plenty of room for 6 or more

  • 4 of 5
Great house with lots of room. It had more like 6 bedrooms if you count all the rooms with beds. Downstairs had a living area with couch/bed plus a bedroom and laundry area along with 4 bedrooms or sleeping areas upstairs. It was nice to be able to do laundry. There were 6 adults and we stayed a week. Plenty of room and privacy for the couples. The walk to the Metro was about 5 blocks, but an easy walk. The only downfall was we couldn't seem to find any restaraunts close by or that would deliver. We were a little nervous about the area, since we had never been there, but everyone we met was friendly. We had a great time!
