Nice house in great location

  • 4 of 5

August 10th to 17th, 2017.

My family of 7 were very comfortable in this house. We walked almost every where as it was in such a great location. We all slept well as there was fans in every room to put on at night to drown out the traffic noises. The house temperature was always cool & comfortable, even in the 3rd floor bedroom. There is all kinds of spices & foods such as flour, sugar, tea, coffee, and many other items that stay good for long periods of time. The ice maker was a big plus. There is an abundance of good books.

I do have a few negatives - the kitchen table is not attached to the pedestal and when my 53 pound granddaughter leaned on it, it almost went over. The refrigerator needs a good cleaning to get the old food and that funky smell out of it. The house itself could use a good deep cleaning under & behind the beds, couch, and chairs. (garbage & dust)

All in all, it was a great vacation and I would recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, Dorothy. The house does get a thorough cleaning g between guests, but it has been very busy this summer. I'll pass your comments onto the cleaning crew. And thanks for pointing out that the table top is no longer attached. We'll take care of that as soon as possible.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Being a family of 7 (5 of which are adults), we loved the space the house gave us. Our special needs son had his own bedroom - something we could never have done in a hotel! The kitchen was fabulous- we ate most of our meals there or made sandwiches to take with us. The only thing we missed, was a container to put our sandwiches in so they wouldn't squish in the backpack, but that's something we should have thought of to bring ourselves. Great location! Walked to Metro and went numerous places. Eastern Market is right around the corner, lots of fresh food to choose from. The home was beautiful. We all enjoyed the great variety of books - something for everyone. Owners were readily available should we have needed anything. Highly recommend! I would comment that there are a lot of stairs. This wasn't an issue for us, but might be for someone else.

Beautiful home, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in DC, primarily because this house is in a perfect location. We left our car parked in the street right in front of the house and were able to walk to the National Mall, the Capitol, all the museums and monuments. It is also very close to public transportation, though we didn't ever have to use that option. The house is beautifully maintained and updated, very cool and comfortable despite the incredible heat and humidity of the week that we were there. Lots of cool restaurants and shops nearby but we cooked at home quite a bit, too. The owners were very nice and responsive to a few small issues we encountered. Overall, a really great place to stay. Thanks!!

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

House was as advertised, but more importantly owners responded to issues with speed and effiency. A/C went out as did TV. Quickly had A/C fixed over 4th of July weekend and replaced the TV the next morning. They were very attentive. Everything you could need was on hand and location excellent.

Cute house near eastern market

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this cute home. We had a group of 7 people and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and condiments in the fridge. There was also things like flour, sugar, and other food in the cubbards. We spent most nights playing cards and relaxing on the deck. The metro is three blocks away along with the circulator bus. Thank you Meg for the great stay.

Warm and charming house. Loved all the antiques and books!

  • 5 of 5

Though or trip was not for a vacation or for fun in DC it made our trip more comfortable and less stressful not having to deal with a hotel. It was the perfect place to be after dealing with our flight from Florida which was delayed 5 times and arriving 6 hours late especially since I was transporting my husband's ashes to have a soldiers burial at Arlington Cemetery. The house was warm and charming. It will always be in our family's memory. We would definitely book again it was in walking distance to the metro Eastern Market and restaurants it would be a great place to explore DC and the surrounding area. Thanks again Meg for making our stay comfy and memorable hope to return again ! Sara, Audrey, Nicholas and Sal...
