Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Please review the entire listing carefully, as many of the questions you may have are actually answered or described in the listing. As your host, I will be as transparent as possible. Please read the many positive reviews of the property and host.

Please do not attempt to make a reservation request online without communicating with me first. We must speak by email exchange BEFORE I agree to host you. I want to make sure that I answer all questions that you may have. I typically respond within 3 hours. If not, definitely within 12 hours of receiving your initial email.

The reason I cannot accept Instant Book is because the unit is listed on other rental sites. I need to confirm the availability and this is usually done within 12 hours.

Also, you may notice a gap in dates for guest reviews.

Often reviews are left on other competing sting sites.

Also, many guests do not leave reviews.

Please - No Smoking ever inside or outside the property. I would ask that if you have to smoke, that you choose to stay somewhere else. This is a smoke free property.

Modern and so beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This apt was incredible, the furniture was fantastic, your needs are all around you and it smells so good. Overall, the environment of the apt was so good, I would definitely give this place 100 out of 10. BTW, the guy who's responsible for this place was so nice with me and my family. Anyway I would definitely recommend this place and I would definitely come back to it again.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, airy, in a quiet residential area. Comfy beds and extremely well-appointed. The host even stocked a few things in the frig prior to our arrival ( juice, eggs, etc). A short 15 minute walk to the nearest metro stop made it convenient to get into D.C. What a fantastic place to come home to after a day of sightseeing in the city! Highly recommend!!

Fabulous Mid-Century Modern Space; Thoughtful Owner

  • 5 of 5

I work for a nonprofit based in Arlington, VA and a colleague and I stayed in this spacious two bedroom and we were absolutely thrilled. It's a beautiful space, tastefully decorated and a nice walk (less than 20 minutes) to our offices near Ballston metro stop. The owner went above and beyond making us feel welcome and we will definitely return again and recommend this place to our colleagues. We enjoyed catching up on one of our favorite shows on Netflix on the large television in the front room, traveling a short distance to the Safeway (less than a mile) and preparing some meals in the deluxe kitchen. The owner has really anticipated all his guests' needs. If only he could decorate my place back in Minneapolis! Last point: it's a very good value.

A lovely home away from home, thank you

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family from London England, to celebrate my brothers graduation. An excellent family reunion. JR made us feel welcome and ensured we had every home comfort a home away from home can offer. We will definitely stay with JR in future and we recommend you to stay here too.

Soooo Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the top floor apartment for 3 nights with my family. It was beautiful and Steve had everything we needed there - the kitchen has all the cooking gadgets, pots, picnic supplies that you need. There are nice touches throughout the house from orchids to night lights to white noise machines in the bedrooms. We will definitely return.
