Five friends and I celebrated a bachelorette party at Tareq's beautiful home and had a wonderful time. We took advantage of the great kitchen and cooked at home both nights. Visiting the wineries Tareq suggested was extremely easy and we hit four on the second day of our trip. Everything is as described. I cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful home and amazing location. Tareq was such a phenomenal host, and he went completely out of his way to make our stay great.
Thank you again, Tareq, for your generous hospitality!!
WOW what an incredible place! We spent 2 nights here with our 3 crazy puppies - Tareq was a very kind host - showed us around at his unbelievable house, it took us some time to take it all in :) We enjoyed the fireplace, the movie theater, an amazingly well equipped kitchen, the diner with breathtaking views, the cozy and comfy bedroom, the bathtubs, the surround music all around the house, not to mention his all wheel drive car he allowed us to use as a shuttle. Tareq- We just can't wait to be back, and thank you again for the amazing few days!
Such a great weekend getaway for my sisters bachelorette getaway! From the whole house sound system to the disco lights and movie theatre, it was the perfect party house! To top it off, Tareq was such a wonderful host. He had music playing when we arrived, welcome drinks and even offered us a bottle of his own personal champagne! I could not have asked for a better host who made sure our group had as much fun as possible. Thank you Tareq, can't wait to come back! :)
I booked this listing for my brother and sister in law because they were planning a dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Here is her review of the property.
We had such an incredible time this weekend. Dinner was really the highlight, but it was great having such an awesome place to stay!! Tareq had several bottles of wine out for us to try that we're from a local winery. Later when we came back he had another bottle from his winery there. We watched the Grammys in the theater, which was so cool. Jim played a little pinball. We really enjoyed staying there. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel. We would love to get a bunch of friends together and stay there again, maybe in the spring. The scenery was gorgeous. We literally were on top of a mountain and had a great view. We would recommend it to others. Now we have a story about dinner and staying with a celebrity! Thanks again. This was an unforgettable night.
Great week end get away! Close proximity to DC. If you are a looking to disconnect from the city, I highly recommend this place.
All the amenities are exactly as they were described. The basement with the pool table, pinball machines and the THX theater were great. We got to watch the playoff games in the theater room, amazing sound and picture quality.
Tareq was a great host with lots of great recommendations.
I can wait to come back for another get away!
We had a wonderful long weekend at this gorgeous house. Tareq is a generous and helpful host. He had great suggestions for restaurants and wineries to visit. The house is on top of hill in a gated community, but the neighbors are pretty far away so it's very quiet. You may need snow tires and four wheel drive to make it up the hill in the winter. We got stuck and Tareq offered us a ride back down.
The house has more than enough to keep us entertained for the whole weekend. The theater in the basement is awesome and gives you a better-than-the-theater experience. He has pinball machines, a popcorn maker, and a hot tub. Very fun.
Just to clarify one thing--Tareq and his awesome dog, Bravo, did stay in the house while we were there, but mostly in a private section of the house. All our interactions with him were overwhelmingly positive and we would definitely go again.
We had a wonderful holiday at this home. Considering this was my first time renting a home through AirBnB, I wasn't sure what to expect. Tareq has such a warm spirit and sent us email reminders to be safe as the weather conditions changed. He placed a welcome sign outside the front door for us upon our arrival. He graciously allowed us to arrive early to accommodate our schedule. The amenities are exactly what you see. My family and I spent the Thanksgiving holiday at this home and it was more than enough room for all of us. When we arrived he had jazz playing throughout the house and inviting ambient lighting. We were given a tour and informed what to do in case we needed anything. He presented us with two bottles of wine to enjoy with our dinner. The mountain views are great and probably gorgeous in the fall. We took our food and cooked there. We could not resist popping popcorn or playing the pinball games. Too much fun. The home theatre is truly enjoyable. My Mom would not leave the basement. If you get cold, he has electric blankets, portable heaters, and fireplaces. The bed upstairs has dual zone heaters. My hubby really liked that feature on the bed. We were there to relax and spend quality time together as a family. We enjoyed the entire house. My husband is an audiophile and he was EXTREMELY pleased with the quality of electronics. Since, we do visit that area often, we plan to return for a weekend getaway. Thanks for your gracious hospitality, we won't forget your kindness!
We had a great time staying at Tareq's home. The theater was our main attraction and the biggest hit. We enjoyed the hot tub and the pinball too. We tried, but didn't quite get a high score! Tareq was a great host and we would definitely visit again.
We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary. This was our first Airbnb experience, and it was very lovely. Tareq was a gracious host; and Bravo, the dog, was a delight, a perfect house mascot! Although we only saw them briefly, it was nice to meet our host.
We had access to about 90% of the house, including the amazing basement. The basement has the theater and large rec room, which (email hidden), pool table, pinball machines, and a full bath. The home is quiet and beautiful. We were greeted with soft lights, lovely jazz music, and a bottle of white wine chilling in the kitchen.
There was plenty of room in the refrigerator and freezer to put our groceries. The back patio area was great for grilling. We would have stayed outside longer but for the dropping temperature.
Overall, it was a wonderful weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you, Tareq, for a great mini-vacation, and Airbnb for the opportunity to find a great place!
It's hard to explain how ridiculously awesome our stay was with Tareq.
To begin, his house is amazing! I was hosting a bachelor party (10 total men over 2 nights) for my best friend who lives in D.C. and at our final dinner I received a standing ovation for having found Mr. Salahi's place for us to throw it. Everything is extremely well kept and the list of things to do while staying there is far too long to list.
In regards to our host, I've never been so catered to in my life. Tareq went above and beyond in hosting us. It'll become pretty apparent upon arriving that he isn't doing this for the income. The man truly loves to host and share hospitality wherever he can. As an example of his going above and beyond, he gave our soon-to-be-not-bachelor bachelor a bottle of his own winery's sparkling whites, rated in the top 10 sparkling wines in the world and higher than Don Perignon and Cristal. The walls are lined with Tareq and a plethora of well known celebrities and politicians including past presidents. While we were there, he had to leave for an evening because he was running for governor for VA for the Independent Party.
I could go on and on about how amazing our stay is, however for lack of synonyms for "amazing," all I can tell you is that you need to stay here. I personally live in Dallas, TX, but I will most definitely be coming back someday!
