About The Owner

I handle the business & marketing side from the background whereas my Property Manager does all the hard work. Our guests really appreciate his efforts and makes a note of it in the reviews.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose Washington DC

I chose to convert my home into a vacation rental based on demand in the DC market.

What makes this house unique

I believe you will feel very comfortable. It feels like a home away from home.

Our family visit to DC

  • 4 of 5

My 3 kids and I went to DC for a few days before 2 of them are off to college. I spent a lot of time trying to find the right house for the 4 of us. I looked at many houses before picking this one. This house is exactly as advertised. One of the reasons I picked this house was because of the reviews and the fact that Sherman answered all of them. The house is on a quiet street. Everything we needed was at our disposal. Not only did we have everything we needed, there was a parking pass for the street. While there is a spot in the back to park this came in very handy since we had 2 cars with us. All we had to do was some food shopping for whatever we wanted during our stay. I had a chance to meet some of the neighbors and they are very nice. We did not use the metro. We used Uber to get around which is very convenient. Although I did not have the chance to meet Sherman he was always available for any questions I had. The house was perfect for us and I will definitely be back again. I have already recommended this to some friends of mine.

Well-prepared kitchen and indoor facilities, beautiful interior design, good location.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house was wonderful! Highly recommended for large groups of 5 to 7!

We really enjoyed the design and decorations of this cozy place in Washington DC. The fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and drying machine made life much more easier, especially for a large group of six like us. The parking space at the back of the house is secured by a garage door, but a rental car is certainly not necessary if you live here, since the subway station is within walking distance and can get you to nearly all places of interest. We really appreciated the Subway cards that the owner left us on the living room table! Be sure to take them if you're going to take the subway!

The neighborhood is beautiful and the restaurants are wonderful, especially those along First Street.

We really hope that we could actually stay longer here!

The house was beautiful. It was very spacious. My grandchildren loved how big it was. Parking in back would only hold two small cars. We ended up using the back for one vehicle and on street parking for the other. All in all it was a very nice house to stay at. It only took us a few minutes to walk to the metro. I would recommend this place for anyone who was going to DC and wanted to stay in a house.. We had nine people and has plenty of room. We didn't get the chance to meet Mr. King but he did answer my questions when I contacted him by phone.

Owner's Response: So happy you found the house beautiful & spacious! We have a parking pass that allows an extra car to park on the street, just be mindful to move the car when on the days when the street cleaner comes. Thanks for your recommendation.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

We did not spend much time in the property - we were out sight seeing most of the time. Neighborhood is transitioning. We did not feel comfortable walking from the subway station late at night.

Owner's Response: Guests are out and about most of the time enjoying all the sights that DC has to offer that they only get to enjoy the home for a short time. I wish I knew why you did not feel comfortable; it's a great neighborhood with friendly neighbors. None of our guests (nor have I) experienced any difficulties walking at night. Most importantly, I'm glad you found the property beautiful...I just hope your stay was great!

Wonderful time had by all

  • 4 of 5

WOW. Nice quiet row house near the Capital. Blocks from the Metro and grocery store. The house was clean and well equipped with linens, utensils, and paper supplies. We booked for a week, and we had 2 couples. The 3 BR and 2.5 baths gave room and privacy for all. I loved the Spanish/Mediterranean section of the house with the two story skylight. We never needed Sherman, but always felt that he was just a quick phone call away. We WOULD stay there again! We DO recommend it!!!!

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 of us staying in the house, and wanted somewhere with a kitchen that felt like a home and not a hotel. We were not disappointed! The house was clean, comfortable, well equipped, and provided plenty of space for us to spread out and relax (we did have to use futons and airbeds). We liked that it was not far from downtown- an easy bus ride to the Capitol Hill area, Walmart and other grocery stores, and a short walk to the train station. We had groceries delivered to the house as well- would highly recommend this! We never met Sherman but he was always available by phone to answer questions. We had a great time and would recommend this house to anyone!
