Our hosts made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. Our situation was a bit different from many travelers in that we were a family moving back to Washington after many years living overseas, and we needed a place to stay in the neighborhood while our home was being renovated. Jane and Max were very supportive and kind as the children started at their new school. We used both the upstairs bedroom and bath and the downstairs family room and bath, which was a good arrangement for the three of us. As mentioned in the description, the hosts also have a dog-sitting service, but for us that was a plus, with their canine friends providing some entertainment for the children. Everything was exceedingly clean and well-appointed, and breakfast was nice - bagels, fruit, cereal or granola, juice, coffee. We are glad that our excellent Airbnb hosts will be our neighbors.
We loved staying with Jane and Max. The house (and room) are beautiful, and were very conveniently located - just steps away from buses that go straight downtown. Jane and Max were friendly and generous hosts and made us feel very welcome. I'd unreservedly recommend them!
Beautiful, safe and convienent neighborhood. Jane and Max are wonderful hosts...very welcoming but not intrusive and they make a hell of a granola! The room is immaculate and the bed is very cozy with a lovely neighborhood view from the windows. Great private bath with all the ammenities. Uber and Lyft are never mor than a 5 min wait and there are Car-To-Go vehicles on every block. I will stay here from now on when I visit DC. Loved it!
We were family of 4 and we had a wonderfull time! Jen and Max were so welcoming and made us feel like family visiting. The house was beiond expectations in an AMAZING location.
Max and Jane were both very welcoming during our overnight stay. They greeted us at the door and we talked about the house and the local restaurants because we were starving and ready for a drink after being stuck in traffic all day. The house is just as shown in the photos. The bedroom included a desk, two bottles of water and glass, tv, nice storage for our luggage, and a private bathroom. Breakfast was a nice spread of bagels, fruit, coffee and juice. We all chatted quite a bit during breakfast and talked about our day. I wish we had had more time to spend in DC on this trip to enjoy the house, neighborhood, and a maybe even a glass of wine with Max and Jane on their beautiful porch. Wisconson Ave is a short walk away and has some nice restaurants and a Whole Foods.
Jane & her boyfriend Max were good hosts, it was an easy & pleasant stay.
One thing we do want to digress is how the kitchen area was not made available to us. We were surprised considering the kitchen is the first photo in their AIRB&B listing, which is quite misleading. The weather was around 94-97 degrees on Saturday and intensely humid, after sight-seeing and exploring the monuments outdoors all day - my sisters, mom & I were exhausted from heat - we wanted to bring home takeout to cool down however we were told to eat on the outdoor porch. We ended waiting for seats at the restaurant before heading back to tuck in early for another day of exploring.
Aside from that, Jane & Max were really sweet, they even offered us orange juice / coffee the next day. They were also babysitting two of the cutest pups and were always accommodating in all our traveling questions.
We are sorry that our guests were disappointed about not being able to use our kitchen. Our house rules note that the kitchen is our private space unless we are serving breakfast to our guests. Unfortunately our guests must not have read that. We try our best to make our guests feel at home and accommodate their requests most times.
What a wonderful experience!!! Jane and Max welcomed us very warmly, we had so interesting talks during the breakfast. The rooms are perfect even for a family of five and the breakfast is terrific!!! The neighborhood is very quiet and very closed to downtown Georgetown with wonderful restaurants and shops. If we could award more than five stars, we would do that; thankyou so much, Jane and Max!!!
About the Host, Jane
My boyfriend Max and I are both semi-retired and enjoy the adventure of being an Airbnb hosts, as well as hosts for dogs through DogVacay.
I love to keep active - tennis, biking, volleyball, going to the gym. I love gardening - my front garden is all flowers. I have flowers on my back deck and "my crops" of lettuce and herbs too, and a plot in a community garden. I grew up on a dairy farm in Minnesota so farming is part of me.
I have a degree in history and enjoy seeing and reading about history. I've been part of a book club for about 15 years and have enjoyed reading some great books and meeting some great people. I am curious about life and search on the Internet for many things so that I can learn.
Max and I really enjoy traveling - both in the U.S. and abroad. Max grew up in Italy and is fluent in Italian. I can speak some German. Max is semi-retired working as a freelance editor and teaching Italian. We're both easy-going and enjoy meeting people. As we both head toward retirement, we'd like to do more traveling and volunteer work.
Life is sweet!
