Let me start by saying Doug was great! Everything about the property was amazing! From the views to all the different features and amenities, we couldn't have asked for a cooler place to stay! I would recommend this for just a couple people or a group. Great all around stay and it was a pleasure working with Doug!

Doug's house is truly one of a kind! I brought a group of high school students and it really was the most amazing place any of us have stayed, the kids really felt special getting to stay in this super cool home and Doug was very generous. As others mentioned Doug is around during the stay and there are cameras around the house so it's not a place with privacy which isn't a big deal but people should know. Overalls a really really cool experience for my students.

Doug's house is stunning! We were greeted by Doug and his beautiful dog Haiti when we arrived and he gave us a tour of the accommodations. Doug was very available to us during our stay -- one night when we had questions about turning on the fireplace, he responded via text within a few minutes. The only part that was a little surprising was when Doug came through the main living room area a few times to check on us and do work around the house. It wasn't bothersome but since the ad had said it was a listing for the entire home/apt, I had thought we would have the whole premise to ourselves undisturbed. This was never an issue but I did want to give other travelers a heads up.
Thanks again Doug for your hospitality and for letting us stay :)
Great place to have a party! Everyone was impressed :)
Some friends and I rented Doug's house to host a New Year's Eve party for 215 people, and could not have been happier with the venue. The house didn't even seem crowded because of the distributed layout (it's really 2 houses combined via a 2-story open living room and rooftop deck with a heated pool).
Doug had his handyman Geo help us with all of the setup, breakdown and cleanup, which was a HUGE help. (thanks again Geo - you're the man).
The house is centrally located in the Dupont area (about 2 blocks from Dupont Circle), and exceeded all of our guest's expectations. Whatever your event is (for example: wedding reception, bachelor party, birthday party, new year's eve party, etc) this place is perfect!

About the Host, Doug
I've lived in this neighborhood and this ever growing house for over a decade. My passion and work in Haiti consumes most of my day outside of work in the fitness industry,and walking my 2 year old Husky/ Shepard puppy who has a very cool disposition and is loved by EVERYONE that meets him, including dog skeptics.
