Helen and John are wonderful hosts! Very easy-going and communicative while also being respectful of your privacy. I chose to stay with Helen and John because of the added privacy that comes with renting a larger and more separated space, and this space provided exactly what I was looking for. Everything was incredibly clean and well-prepared! Helen and John have a very cute dog! The dog didn't bark at all after the initial meeting, so you won't have to worry about that. Lastly, the check-in and check-out times are very generous and made traveling to and from Manassas a lot less stressful. Thank you, Helen and John, for welcoming us into your home and treating us so well!

Helen and John are very nice and accommodating people, my family who stayed over and don't speak any English very enjoyed their stay there!

Helen and John were thoughtful hosts, making sure that all of our needs were met and even made sure to put out glasses for us to help ourselves to water. The ad is 100% accurate as described. My friend and I stayed and loved the downstairs layout as well as the proximity of their house to the Jiffy Lube Live venue and downtown. Would definitely stay again.

Helen, John & Lucy are as great as their home. They were extremely helpful & phenomenal at communicating. The accommodations were cute, clean, comfortable, & perfect for working & relaxing. The location was convenient to the George Mason satellite campus where I attended a conference & for exploring the Manassas area. I easily found Uber & Lyft rides everywhere I went. I highly recommend staying with Helen & John.

We are Helen and John, and we have started to build our life here in beautiful Manassas, Virginia. We love taking road trips, hiking in one of the many parks and trails Northern Virginia offers, playing with our dog Hailey, and exploring new destinations and cuisine. Out of all the places we've traveled, we definitely have a soft spot for New Orleans and Boston.

We enjoy Korean, Ethiopian, Mexican, Thai, and Vietnamese food (there are some great local joints), re-watching The Office, and playing old school board games. We look forward to hearing from you!
