All seven of us had a wonderful week in DC, thanks to Matt and Jean’s lovely accommodations. The location is perfect. The well appointed kitchen and the adjacent large dining table were just what we needed for breakfast, dinners, playing board games etc. The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were super convenient. The air conditioning system kept us all comfortable on all three floors and we didn’t need to touch the thermostat! Matt and Jean were so helpful with advice, and we were spoiled by the fresh flowers and wine and breakfast treats that were waiting for us when we arrived. Thank you Matt and Jean!
What a wonderful time our family had at Matt and Jean's!! We can't say enough about the time we had while in DC for the week -- being only a block away from the metro was a HUGE plus and at the end of each day we were always so happy to come back our place. SO MUCH BETTER than any hotel would have been.
My husband and I came with our 3 daughters (17, 24, and 30) and son-in-law. The house has spaces large enough to all be together (dining room, 3rd floor living room) but also for us all to have our own space as well.
Matt and Jean really have thought of everything -- wine waiting for us when we arrived, robes in each room, toiletries, more than enough clean towels, milk and juice in the fridge, english muffins....the list goes on! We felt so spoiled staying here and had a hard time leaving!
The beds were comfortable and there was great water pressure in the showers. My two younger girls stayed on the third floor together and loved that they each had their own beds. The loft was awesome and the living space on that third floor was a huge plus. There were more than enough TV's for us all to watch what we wanted to at night and there were a good number of restaurants within close walking distance (plus a Starbucks 5 minutes away!).
Thank you Matt and Jean for all you do! We can't wait to come back!!
We had a wonderful stay in DC! The house was beautiful, cozy, clean, and in a great location. The metro, the capital buildings, and lots of great restaurants are in walking distance.
Matt and Jean were very responsive to all of my inquiries and accommodating. Added touch of breakfast items, wine, chocolates, soft towels and robes were great!!
I would definitely recommend staying here!
Your home was awesome! Absolutely perfect for couples in wedding party to gather and relax between the busy weekend of events in Capitol Hill area and for Eastern Market wedding. The parking passes at last minute were so appreciated as was the welcome food/drinks. We would definitely return if visiting DC again.
We are 8 women who get together annually for a "girls weekend" . Matt and Jean's place couldn't have been more accommodating for our group. Beds were great, plenty of towels, plenty of space for us to spread out. The home is beautifully appointed with comfortable furnishings. We appreciated the nice touches of fresh plants, flowers and candy. Our hosts were gracious to leave us some breakfast supplies, coffee, and a bottle of wine to get us started. The patio is smaller than we expected and wasn't able to set outside. Although the view of the patio from the first floor is quite beautiful. The location can't be beat! We walked everywhere....to the Mall; participated in the Capitol Hill House and Garden tour that was available the weekend we visited. ....loved Eastern Market which has fabulous craft vendors on Saturday and Sunday; and great restaurants within walking distance of the house. Also used the Metro which is just steps around the corner. Matt and Jean were very responsive to our requests and are very accommodating. One of our friends had a late flight and she was able to stay a bit longer than the check out time (only because the house wasn't going to be immediately occupied after our departure). Some of us drove and Matt arranged for parking permits and had no trouble parking on the street. This is a very friendly neighborhood....you won't be disappointed!

About the Host, Matt And Jean
We love big adventures and unique experiences (we climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro for our honeymoon!) which is why we appreciate how great it is to have a private and luxurious place to call home to when you're exploring a new city! We often travel with groups of friends or extended family, and know that it is hard to find a place that fits everyone. We started renting our Capitol Hill rowhouse which fits large groups because we thought other families and groups may enjoy being able to spend time together exploring cities - it's kind of like when you rent a big house at the beach, only you are in the heart of the city!
We’ve been AirBnB hosts for more than 5 years and have loved making sure our guests have the best vacation experience ever! We have tons of information on great things to see, do, and places to eat! From the Cherry Blossoms, to Mt. Vernon, to the Marine Corps Marathon, we've done it all! We really want to make sure you have a great stay with us and in DC, so let us know if there's something special that we can do to make sure everything is perfect!
