I am French and have been living in the US for 12 years. I work in the media industry and enjoy very much the cultural life and the many museums in Washington DC. I often travel for work nationally and overseas.

Wonderful place, confortable, very good style and convenient location. We spent there more than a week. Close to Georgetown by bus and walking distance from Tenleytown Metro Station. I highly recommend this apartment in DC if you are looking for a quiet and safety place. Was my first experience in Airbnb and Gilles was a kind and helpful host.
We (2 adults, one 4 YR old) stayed for one month at Gilles's place and we couldn't have thought of a better place to feel ourselves at home. Gilles is the most welcoming host one can dream of, answered all our questions with patience and great competence as he knows the place plus shopping facilities and restaurants inside out. His flat is spacious, super clean and very charming. Gilles is a true cosmopolitan and he decorated his house with art and souvenirs from all over the world, after a while you get the idea that you made all those travels by yourself.
The flat comes with all you need to have a comfortable stay and in 4 weeks we did not miss one thing. The location is superb - if you look for a quite place with gardens surrounding you, nice neighbors, Gilles flat can't be beaten. The bus stop is 3 min away and takes you downtown in 50 mins. Plenty of parking space too. Would love to come again!
My wife and I stayed in Gilles' apartment for two weeks. The experience was great from the start - Gilles left us some goodies (coffee, bread, jam, beer, etc) to get started food-wise. The apartment is very comfortable, large, airy, and quiet. The kitchen is well-equiped, and Gilles was very responsive to any questions that we had. Parking is on the street, but Gilles provided a guest parking permit so that we were not constricted by the Zone parking restrictions. The closest Metro station (Tenleytown) is about 12 min walk away, but buslines to Georgetown and downtown are only one block away.
Gilles is a charming host. The house is as it aparace in the photos, very comfortable light and very clean. The apartment lacks nothing and let Gilles is responsible for everything you need to make you feel like home. It has been cared much for us and given us all the necessary information about the apartment and Washington DC. Thank you very much, would definitely return.
We were in DC for the Inauguration week arriving from London. Gilles place at McLean Gardens was exactly what we had hoped for and more. The apartment is very charming. A beautiful and extremely clean apartment, stylishly decorated and very comfortable for all our needs.
A total gem we stayed in. Gilles’ home really is so beautiful. Close enough to the Metro, but allowing for safe walks through an incredible, picturesque neighbourhood. The area felt safe and clean.
Gilles was an excellent host. Extremely accommodating - we couldn’t have asked for a better host. Gilles greeted us with plenty of helpful information and then gave us our privacy for the rest of the stay. We took full advantage of the local area and restaurants, especially the fantastic Mexican Restaurant nearby recommended by Gilles. It really is a lovely area to enjoy walking and taking in the scenery.
We had a wonderful time and felt extraordinarily lucky to get to stay at Gilles home. We would gladly stay there again. This was my first Airbnb stay, and Gilles has definitely set a high standard for my future bookings. I would definitely recommend Giles and this apartment to anyone.
Again - like moths to the lamp at night - a couple of travellers keen to see "the other side of Turkey" at its fundamental village component, and we certainly have it here in our little village of Kirazli. A far cry from your home town Gilles and we are glad you enjoyed your stay - we look forward to coming over to Washington when we can! Happy travels.
