About Nancy C. Irigoyen
I have retired from the Organization of American States and I am enjoying my retirement managing my rental properties. I am alwaays delighted welcoming and meeting interesting guests from all over the US and the world. I make sure that my guests will not miss home and that their vacations will be memorable ones. I have downsized and my husband and I live two blocks away from our rental property, I am a phone call away to help my guests in case they need my assistance.
Nancy C. Irigoyen purchased this House in 2003
Why Nancy C. Irigoyen chose Lake Barcroft
I went to college in New York City and moved to work in Washington, DC. I lived in Virginia since 1971 and fell in love with the wooded areas of Falls Church. I bought a small house in the Sleepy Hollow Woods area and passed by the White House every day waiting for the owner to sell it. I finally bought it in 2003. We fully renovated it in 2014 and had enjoyed it for 15 years. After my retirement, we decided to downsize and now my husband and I live two blocks away in our small first house. I am also a part time translator and painting artist. My office and studio are located in the basement of the rental house. When the house is rented I only come to water my plants in the outside gradens and I visit my office and studio when guests are not present. We love our White House! It is unique and we treasure our memories living in it. It will be hard to sell it! Fortunately, we found the best alternative to keep it by renting it to guests who will enjoy it and appreciate it as much as we do.
What makes this House unique
Guests will enjoy the closeness to Washington, DC. The White House is located in Falls Church, Virginia, in an elegant and quiet place known as Barcroft Woods, which is full of big trees and flowers in the spring and summer. The entire two levels of the house are spacious and full of natural light. For art lovers, the house has a permanent gallery with an exhibition of my paintings and from other artists from over the world. The furniture pieces of the house are antiques from Europe. As per the 2015, 2016 and 2017, reviews posted by our guests, about the White House facilities and the services provided were continuously rated as a Five Star Rental Property.

A wonderful place for a family gathering with a warm and welcoming hostess.
The house and grounds are lovely and the beds and linens very comfortable. The kitchen is a great place to cook and to gather. This was our second trip to the White House and likely not our last. Easy to get in and out of D.C. and the airport. I would highly recommend working with Nancy and renting her property.
It was my personal pleasure to welcome you again to your house in Falls Church, Virginia. I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate my gratitude for your preference to rent my house, for your great review and for being such great guests.
Most of all, I am happy to learn that your family event came out as you have planned and that all of you enjoyed de house. I am looking forward to see you in the near future and welcome you again with open arms anytime.
Excellent Accommodations and Host
This was the most accommodating stay ever. All the little things you need to cook, clean, and etc were already there. Every thing is very nice and, it was still very homey and comfortable. For us the 2 king and 2 queen beds were perfect for our guests. It is very quiet. Easy to get to anywhere. Easy access to the vineyards north. Air conditioning is very good, both up and downstairs. Uber was 25$ to DC attractions. Will stay again next time in town with family.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Edwards: It was a personal privilege to be your family host during your vacation at my home. I thank you for your kind review, which is a sweet reward to the efforts done to make you feel at home away from home. You were special and outstanding guests and take this opportunity to express my gratitude for taking care of my house and for living it incredibly clean. I hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again at your house in Falls Church, Virginia in the near future.
Gorgeous home, beautifully furnished, every amenity!
Nancy, our host, met with us on arrival to show us around her wonderful home. Our stay there was just perfect! The kitchen is spacious and perfectly equipped for hosting large family meals.
The living area is spacious, comfortable and elegant. Though we did not use the outside deck, because the weather was still too cool, it too was beautiful!
The bedrooms are very comfortable, and the linens on the beds are so luxurious.
The bathrooms are beautiful.
Truly a gorgeous place to stay, and convenient for downtown D.C.
Eileen: Thank you for your wonderful review and your appreciation of my house. In this line of business, there is nothing more rewarding than to learn that all of you were pleased with the accomodations and that you have enjoyed them with your family, feeling at home at all times and have also enjoyed important and memorable family times.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for renting my house and for taking care of it. You left it immaculate clean! I hope that you will come back when the weather will be better to enjoy the terrace full of flowers and umbrellas for summer barbecues. You will be always welcomed anytime!
All the Comforts of Home
We were worried about a storm that was going to complicate our drive, but Nancy (the homeowner) allowed us to check in several hours early, after driving all night to beat the storm’s arrival.
She welcomed us to her beautiful home, gave us a tour, and had fresh juice, coffee, fruit, and croissants for us to enjoy for breakfast. The home had everything we could possibly want or need, including Apple TV in the master bedroom! The property was spotless, the beds and pillows were wonderful. Our kids loved the showers because of the dual heads. We have 3 teenagers that use a lot of bandwidth and everyone was very happy with the internet at the house. The location was fantastic! Nancy had a large binder full of restaurant information and ideas on things to do in the area. We were just minutes from everything in DC. It was simple to access the metro, but chose to drive to DC most of the time. We are already talking about our next visit to DC. So many great places to see, wonderful food, and beautiful home large enough for all of us to have our own space. We will be back!
Home away from home during the holidays!
We have rented several properties through HomeAway and renting the White House was by far the best experience! Nancy was an exceptional host and thought of everything...from comfortable beds and linens to high quality appliances and cookware. The house was very clean and fully stocked when we arrived. We had plenty of soap, detergents, plates and glassware. The fresh, decorated Christmas tree and poinsettias were an exceptional touch as we were in VA visiting family for Christmas. It was a joy to entertain our family in the White House. We are grateful for the memories and highly recommend this property!
Thank you immensely for your review. It was a great pleasure to have you as my guests for the Chirstmas holiday. Your comments made me feel great and motivated me to do my outmost in order to make feel guests at home. Thank you also for taking care of my house and for leaving it very clean. It will be a great pleasure to welcome you again in the near future.
Lovely home for family gatherings
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Your attention to detail in making us feel at home was very much appreciated. The state of the art kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed to prepare a nice Thanksgiving meal. I would highly recommend this home for families visiting the DC area. Thank you Nancy!
Thank you for your kind review! It is a great pleasure to learn that your family felt at home and that had enjoyed a great family gathering in the house.

I will always do my outmost to guarantee you a memorable family vacation.
