Heather is an awesome host. She and her family are very gracious and accommodated me at the last minute. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this location to friends.
Heather and family were wonderful. Upon arrival there were fresh baked cookies and the private room with adjoining bathroom was just as nice as we expected. Everyone was very welcoming and willing to accommodate. We have already recommended Heather to friends who travel to the area. A perfect Airbnb experience for u!
I really appreciated the privacy of my own room with bath on the second floor. It was clean and well maintained.
Heather and her family were very congenial and made me feel welcome and comfortable and our arrangements were flexible.
The neighborhood is cozy and there is ample street parking on nights and weekends. It is a hop, skip and jump to downtown DC.
This was our second stay with Heather because we were so very happy with the first stay. We were glad to be back. Heather is a gracious and generous hostess and is quick to try and take care of anything you might want or need. The room is clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The people are friendly, and even the dog is nice. The price is amazing for the location. There are delicious cookies. What more could we want?
Heather was warm and hospitable. She was helpful in getting us to where we wanted to go. The neighborhood was very nice and we felt very safe and comfortable. The refrigerator was great as we were able to have a simple breakfast prior to our days activities.
I really enjoyed staying at Heather's place! Very lovely room and she was an accommodating host.
