About the property

Flexible accommodation ~ can sleep up to 9 people

Welcome to our beautiful detached home in D.C's Brookland neighborhood. Locals refer to Brookland as ‘DC's best kept secret', it's a little haven in DC, away from the hustle and bustle but the Metro (Red line) can get you downtown in 15 minutes to the monuments, museums, white house and Capitol hill.

The lower level of the house has just been remodeled. It’s light and airy but cozy too. There is a queen bed and a day-bed which can comfortably sleep an extra guest. A kitchenette is well equipped with mini fridge, toaster, microwave and coffee maker.

The main house can sleep up to 6 people. It has 1.5 baths, 3 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full size sofa bed & 1 queen) kitchen dining area with all stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There are flat screen TV’s cable and free WIFI.

Everything is newly furnished and decorated, comfy beds complete with the luxurious linens and towels.

Large fenced yard to let the children run and play complete with front and back porches to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Additional patio area and gas grill.

We are close to all the attractions in DC, as we are conveniently located near to the metro (red line). Washington's DC’s monuments, the mall, the amazing museums, the Whitehouse and Capitol building are all within 15-20 minutes by car or metro.

Don’t miss the Franciscan Monastery and gardens, there are also many bike trails nearby including the National Arboretum. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is the largest Roman Catholic Church in the United States and is one of the 10 largest churches in the world.

We have plenty of guidebooks and local knowledge on what to see, where to go and some great recommendations for restaurants.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Lara and Alex's place for two days and it was lovely! Unfortunately, Lara was out of town & we didn't get to meet her, but Alex was a wonderful host and gave us many good tips for restaurants, etc. Thank you Alex (and Lara) for providing everything we could possibly need! So nice of you to have goodies for breakfast - we were able to splurge more on dinners! It was especially nice to be able to park right outside; even though we took the bus/metro during the day, a nighttime drive down to the Lincoln Memorial was a breeze, and there was plenty of parking there. We highly recommend this listing.

Great location, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to attend a conference at the convention center. It was very convenient.. a $10 uber to the convention was always a minute or two away. The home was very clean, well furnished, and nicely updated.

Adorable comfy home perfect for D.C. Visits with a whole family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Lara's home. It's nestled in a lovely neighborhood, but we were easily able to jump on the metro into the heart of D.C.

My 3 kids loved the cozy feel and room to play (the fenced yard is very big!) and my parents declared the basement bed the most comfortable ever.

The only thing to note was that there is not laundry available at the home. They recommend a pickup service, but I went down the street to a laundromat and was easily in and out in a hour.

This is a fabulous home for a family who wants to get the at-home feel after a day of city sightseeing.

Brookland home.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family vacation with my sister and her family and my brother and his family. There were nine of us and we found the home to be a perfect fit for us. We rented the basement apartment as well which served as a wonderful spot for the teenagers with us! We loved the location which is close to the Metro and even the drive in to D.C. was not difficult. We were met at the home by the owner who explained the area and made recommendations for restaurants and other points of interest in the area i.e. Basilica, Franciscan Monastery. We would definitely recommend this home.
