Very convenient, comfortable place to stay (4.5 stars)

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my family (seven in total) just under a fortnight around the fourth of July and found the location almost ideal to tool around DC and the environs. The Mosaic center is nearby and gives a lot of options for dinner and shopping. The Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro Station is also accessible, so you have quite a few options. Both DCA and IAD are about 20 minutes away by car/Uber so everyone in our family had a relatively easy time to getting there and going away. Having three rooms upstairs and basically a one bedroom apartment in the basement made our family reunion feel uncrowded. Just about everything we needed was there, and Monika the property manager, was very responsive, polite and accommodating with any issues we had. There are only two reasons why I would not give this house the full five stars: (1) The house is a bit dated, as are the appliances and fixtures. Nothing terrible, but I have had some spectacular places with VRBO/Homeaway, so I have been spoiled by those. (2) Next door to the house is some commercial real estate, trucks and machinery, so again, not as spectacular a location as I have had on other rentals.

All that having been said, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone with 6 or 7 adults in their party. You will get full value for your money. As I noted, you could not be located in a more ideal place to explore DC.

Great house for families visiting DC area

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for our grown kids, spouses, and one grandchild so we could have a family reunion. The location is great. It's less than 2 miles from an Orange Line Metro station (you can actually walk it). There's a new upscale development nearby with shops, restaurants, theaters, and a Target. And it's a couple minutes from the Beltway. The house is furnished very tastefully. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs with one bath. The downstairs is a large mother-in-law apartment with its own sleeping area and bath. The cleaning service must be in the habit of leaving unused foodstuff, as we found cooking oil, rice and some other basics in the kitchen (the rice proved to be useful). There are a ton of very nice dishes, glassware. Monika, the rental manager, is very professional and prompt. The kitchen waste disposal failed on the second day of our stay and the handyman was there the next morning to diagnose and fix the problem. We will come back to this rental when we have another reunion.

Cozy home for family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for one month and all of my family members enjoyed it very much. Great location and lots of sun light in both the front and back yard. The property agent Monica is very friendly and responsive. Highly recommend it!

Great location and property management company!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for two weeks and will return if we ever have to come back to the NOVA area. From the get go, Monika the property manager was so easy to work with and responded quickly to all my questions and requests. The house is in a great location and had everything you would need for a short or long term stay. The basement provides private space for those traveling with others but who want to their own privacy. House is well kept, very clean and has plenty rooms.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home. It comfortably slept seven adults, and was more spacious than we anticipated. We had easy access to the Metro, only a 5-10 minute drive away depending on traffic. It was also very close to many restaurants, grocery (Safeway, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Mom's Organic Market), stores, and cinema. The Mosiac District, which is just a 5 minute drive, was a great local area to hang out and eat, and had lots of free parking. We enjoyed being near enough to explore D.C., Reston, Tysons Corner and Fairfax. The house itself is located in a quiet neighborhood, but still felt like we were close to so many different areas to explore. We had easy, quick, reliable communication with the owner as well.
