About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Allen chose U Street Corridor (Shaw)

This is a unique apartment. We gutted out the old house and redid the entire house including the lower floor. Everything you see here is less than a year old and it is designed with great care, taste and quality.

What makes this townhome unique

There are tons of shops, restaurants, and bars to go to that are in walking distance to the unit. There is also a grocery store (Giant Foods) down the street from the unit (7 minute walk).

Lovely home; 3 bathrooms a plus!

  • 5 of 5

Responsive owner, nice bathrooms, workable kitchen, 3 kIng bedrooms were comfy, as was the twin (but the twin trundle is really awkward). Only downside is living room seats 5 comfortably - others will be on floor or hard chairs. Easy walk to grocery store (Giant), coffee shop (Compass) and gelato (near Giant.) Saw a few homeless people on the streets, nice neighbors; never felt unsafe. DC is an amazing city!

Beautiful home...not an ideal location

  • 4 of 5

The home is lovely, it’s appointed for a rental so you will feel like you are in a rental property. The configuration is 3 large bedrooms and one small room with a twin and trundle. It doesn’t sleep ten (not that we had ten) it sleeps 8 at most. Two bathrooms upstairs and a full downstairs. We used this home for a corporate retreat and found the location in DC a little less desirable than our other choices, beside a school and it was fairly loud on the front part of the house. The house was just as it appears in photos. I’m not sure if this is a VRBO requirement or an owner choice but I didn’t like that we had to pay in full a month before arrival. We would choose a more luxurious spot for our next retreat. Owner was responsive and nice prior, we didn’t need anything while we were on site.

Great family gathering place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The townhouse was perfect for our family Thanksgiving gathering. There were six of us - 5 adults and 1 child. The space was perfect for us-lots of room, comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen, convenient to stores and restaurants and transportation. We will consider the space again the next time we come to D.C.

The place was awesome, very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. It was very convenient for our group going to the convention center.

Allen was an excellent host and was immediately available for anything that came up

Would highly recommend

Worked great for our family event

  • 5 of 5

We were joined by four of our adult kids for a family event in DC. This rental worked out great for us. Allen, the owner, was there when we arrived and gave us the tour. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well equipped, plenty of room for six adults. The neighborhood is transitional but definitely on the way up. We had zero problems. Shaw, the neighborhood it's in is home to some of the best new dining in DC and a short drive to the big DC attractions. Giant grocery store is a few blocks walk away.
