REVIEWS:

Karen – “My husband and I stayed in the Birdhouse for a week long getaway. We enjoyed the quiet and picturesque location of this apartment. The bus and subway system were easy and convenient to navigate from there. I was very impressed with the communication we received from Charlotte and the host prior and during our visit. We felt very well taken care of and comfortable in our home away from home.”--May 2013

Gregory – “The Bird House was great! It is close to everything you need, yet far enough away to feel comfortable and at home. Mattias was helpful and a fantastic host. Any time we had a question we sent him a text and soon we had an answer or help. Any time we wanted to see museums, take a tour, go to the flea market,

We had a wonderful time at the Bird House! My husband and I stayed here with our two daughters. There was plenty of room, and we enjoyed having the kitchen to make breakfast in the morning. We would definitely stay here again!

Reviewer Comments:

The property was in a perfect location for us as we were visiting friends in the neighbourhood. But for anyone visiting the DC area it would be a great choice as it will give you a good feel as to what it would be like to live there. In addition it is very easy to access by car compared to anywhere closer to downtown and yet is within a 25 minute walk to Georgetown. The apartment itself is very comfortable and has everything you will need. Only caution is that if someone is staying in the apartment directly overhead you will hear them walking around

We've been here for 4 days, in the nice Bird House. The house is quite comfortable, it has everything you need for your stay. The area is quite accessible to commute to downtown DC. There is a bus stop just across the street. Our host,Matthias, has been helpful at all time. We've really enjoyed our stay at the house, the neighborhood and the nice places near the house, such as restaurants, coffee stores or even the Safeway on Mac Arthur Blvd. to buy groceries. I'd recommend this place definitely!

Really fantastic oasis in DC. The space is exactly as pictured - very comfortable and cozy. I chose to take the bus into Dupont Circle and that was super convenient. Also, the hosts were flexible and helpful!

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed Washington, bus stop in front and Uber worked perfect. Room was nice,everything we needed was there, market in walking distance. For 4 persons it was a little tight but for 4 nights it was okay. Mattresses were old and not very comfortable, except for the double bed. Carpet can be renewed. 3 stars. Appartement on website pictures looked much larger.

Map

Our apartment is located at 5139 MacArthur Blvd in NW Washington, DC on the Potomac River. Our wonderful location offers travelers the best of both worlds. You are close in to the center of Washington, Historic Georgetown is 10 minutes away, The Kennedy Center and K Street Corridor are a mere 15 minutes away, you can reach the west end of the National Mall in 20 minutes. A downtown bus, the D6 and D5 Express, stop just out front and will take you to Downtown, The National Mall, White House, US Capitol Building and Union Station.

Yet when you desire a break from sightseeing or work you will find within walking distance the boathouse where you can rent a kyak or rowboat, or you can bike/walk the C&O Canal towpath, or loose yourself on a forest trail in a national park. Your location in Palisades Village offers all the amenities and conveniences you could want: a variety of restaurants, some of which are considered top in the city, grocery store, pharmacy, banks, cleaners, fine wines, coffee shops, gourmet foods to go, park and recreation center, library, parks, playgrounds and shops.
