We had a great experience in Bertina's home. This was my first time trying airbnb and I'm happy it was such a positive experience. The room was spacious and comfortable. We were close to all of the sites we wanted to visit and the complimentary continental breakfast was a great touch. I would definitely recommend this listing.
We would definately recommend a stay at Bertina's house. The house is well located to visit the sights in the city (by metro). The room and bathroom are comfortable and clean! Bertina and her family were very friendly!
Bertina is a superb host, and her breakfasts are superb, too: from jam to scrumbled eggs to toast, you have it all. We were able to ate our breakfast out on the patio, discussing with her and other hosts, how to organize our stay in Washington. She would let us do our laundry in the washing machine. The first time she gave us a ride to the metro station: memorize the 10 minutes walk trip - it's easy during day time, but less easy to find at night. A round trip ticket till the Smithsonian costs 6.50$.
Bertina is correct in her description; her house is lovely! Bertina was such a gracious host, providing breakfast every morning as well as taking us to the subway every morning. She was extremely friendly and went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The room and house were exactly as described. The bed, room, and bathroom were extremely comfortable. I enjoyed her hospitality , and I would not hesitate to stay Bertina's house the next time I am in DC.
Nice visit, great family, and close to the metro station. Bertina's house is where I would recommend to stay when in DC. Two thumbs up.
Every morning Bertina or her son would prepare a small breakfast for us. It was always some sort of baked good along with a fresh fruit, which was wonderful for me, because I have a gluten allergy. She even got me cereal to accommodate my food allergy :) Coffee is readily available anytime you want it as well! The house is beautiful and clean, without any clutter. It is very spacious and easy to get around. The whole house is lovely, but the kitchen is definitely my favorite and has given me remodeling ideas (there is a sky light directly above the kitchen that lets in natural light.) Bertina herself was very inviting and accommodating. She always tried to make us feel very welcome and comfortable when we were home and offered us rides to and from the metro station when we would run into one another around the house. Her neighborhood is very nice and safe, but the surrounding areas are a little sketchy if you're not used to the city, though we never ran in to any trouble. We never really found a convenient grocery with specialty items and it's a little ways away from the places we wanted to visit, but none of that reflects poorly on Bertina (she tried to let us know before we came that she wasn't close to certain things.) Overall our stay was lovely and we had a great time visiting!
I loved Bertina's home it was so lovely. Deciding to stay at Bertina's was a last minute decision because my original lodging arrangements didn't work out. She was very hospitable to me and my family. In the morning she provided us with a continental breakfast. Everything was so nice. I definitely would choose to stay there again. Lisa

About the Host, Bertina'S House
I am an easy going, laid back person who loves to meet new people. My four bedroom, two car garage home is very clean and inviting. I have two family rooms and my guests can feel free to use the internet, watch a movie, or just relax in the massage chair. I am a teacher and I love children. They are always welcome. Great location!!! Quiet, respectful house seeking the same in our guests!! If you are driving, I have free off street parking for you.
I will provide bedding, linens, towels, breakfast and lots of advice!!!!!
Search the Washington Metro Transit Authority website so that you can plan all of your trips via Metro bus, Metro Rail or by both. Priceless website!!! Did I mention that this is a great safe and quiet location? This location is the best kept secret in Washington,D.C. The closest airport is Reagean, but Dulles is usually cheaper.
