  • This was a really nice house in a lovely area - quiet, pretty and green, just opposite a park which was great for kids, and also just 15 minutes walk to the Metro. Thank you for making our stay so smooth Lara!

  • This was my first Airbnb stay, and I couldn't be more pleased with the accommodations this beautiful Tenleytown home provided.

    Access to the home was simple and straightforward, and our host reached out to us to make sure everything was going well the day after our arrival. Fortunately, the home's welcome guide answered all of our first day questions. The home was well stocked with everything we would need for our stay, with fresh linens, dishes and cookware, and even some toiletries ready for use. Cable TV and Internet were reliable and easy to use.

    A great experience I hope to repeat with all my future Airbnb stays!

  • We had a delightful family reunion visit in Washington - the house is well appointed in a beautiful neighborhood (perfect for jogging and easy walks to restaurants. It was easy for everyone to gather in the kitchen or back patio as we planned our day, and in the living room as we wound down in the evening. We used the red line Metro (10 min walk) or drove straight down Mass Ave to the Capital. Laura was a wonderful hostess - she even stock the refrigerator for us just before we arrived. We highly recommend this NW Washington gem.
