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 apartment in 2012

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

My two kids and I stayed here for a long weekend and the apartment fit our needs perfectly. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk to the metro stations, super close to the grocery store, and good restaurants nearby. It was nice to be able to park close by and not have to worry about it for the weekend. There were a few items that we needed during our stay and Allen & Juliet took care of them promptly.

We enjoyed our stay here. This studio, in addition to the apartment above it, met all our vacation needs. It was very cozy and warm and gave us the extra space we needed for the Christmas holidays.

Good location. Apartment had a funny smell when we got there. The owners were not really accomdating. Also asked guest to wash towels and clean thrash before leaving. Almost sounded like a requirement. It should be at the guest discretion to want to clean up the house and not feel mandated to do so.

There was also a noise coming from the main building. Kept me up all night.

Cozy and well-located

  • 5 of 5

We had a comfortable stay in this basement apartment. The space worked for me, my husband and 2 boys (aged 5 and 10). We were within 1/2 mile of at least two Metro stations and a large grocery store. Allen provides a shopping trolley, which is very helpful and convenient. We were comfortable with the neighborhood. There is free street parking and also some parking available behind the unit (depending on other visitors). Allen was very available and responsive if needed.

Another Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rents this apartment together with the townhome above it for our annual get together. We use this apartment for the "adult" children in our family. This is our 4th year renting the apartment along with the home upstairs. Allen is very quick to respond to our questions and to help us if any is needed. I am sure we will be renting this apartment again along with the townhome for our next family reunion.
