We're actually neighbors of Romina's, who got flooded out of our apartment for about 10 days. Romina and Josh were flexible and accommodating of a last-minute booking, and with a last-minute extension of our stay (painters took longer than expected). It was great to still be in the neighborhood, and the apartment is spacious and unique!

This is a wonderful location that has a great combination of being not too far from great sites in DC, but also providing a quiet home to come back to after a day of site seeing. Romina and her family are very accommodating and welcoming and we hope that we get to stay with them again soon!

I stayed at Romina's lovely garden apartment for two wk and a half stretches while in town for work. It was the perfect alternative to a hotel: full kitchen, laundry, space. The house is a short walk to Georgetown and nearby grocery store and restaurants. Romina was extremely accommodating and easy to get in touch with. Would love to stay at her home again!

We had a wonderful stay at Romina's apartment. The neighborhood is quiet, very walkable, and close to the bus line, with a Safeway, CVS and restaurants within a few blocks. Romina was a great, attentive host. The apartment has all the amenities of home and was a great, relaxing place to come back to after a day at the office. We would definitely stay here again!

Romina and Joshua Thank you for our June in Washington. Finding Romina’s place was a surprise because one wouldn’t expect to find it in a forest where a cardinal bird welcomes you at the door way, like a fairy tail. Kitchen well equipped and spacious and a fresh living room, good working table were so much used during our month of Washington stay. Cosy bedroom and confortable bed also made it a relaxing time and very confortable. Cleaning 3 times in a month and using the family washer and dryer was also a good way to feel we were in a normal life at home. The Cohen family kept us company even if just by having the sound of the children’s steps running above joyfully. All worked smoothly thank you so much!! Cristina and Ze Miguel Judice

Loved staying at Romina and Josh's Place. Had an excellent time, they're very warm and welcoming, I felt right at home. A perfect location for me, off the beaten path, lots of greenery, but so close to everything (Palisades, Georgetown and Glover Park). Their lower level apartment, is very spacious and like a little home, very comfortable!
