“Alan graciously offered his beautiful home to me for an extended period of time during the covid19 pandemic. I am a nurse at a nearby hospital and felt uneasy staying in my home. He was responsive and generous, allowing me to extend several times while giving me a very affordable price. The apartment was a great home away from home for two months and had everything I needed in order to be comfortable. The fireplace was my favorite part— I spent a lot of time just reading in front of it which allowed me to escape the realities of a strange world around me. The upstairs neighbors were friendly and welcoming. The patio was also a wonderful added bonus! Even though most things were closed, the apartment was in a great location as well! I walked to the mall, Capitol Hill or Meridian Hill on my off days for some fresh air and exercise. I imagine this being the perfect location with all the restaurants and bars within several blocks. If I ever needed a place to stay in DC, this will without a doubt be my go-to Airbnb! I will recommend to all my out of town friends who visit DC!”

“Our stay was very good, the place is well prepared and has all the comforts. Gemma is super attentive in both small details and communication. The only thing to comment is that sometimes noises from above are heard, but that is where Gemma and the family live. Super recommended to spend a few days in Washington!”

“Autumn’s home is beautiful. Just as the pictures show. It’s conveniently located near metro station to get to the heart of the capitol! Easy to find. The bed is super comfy and the shower is so nice! After a long day of exploring, this Airbnb was the perfect to come back to, to relax. Highly recommend! Autumn was very responsive and helpful. A great area; always felt super safe! We will definitely stay again in the future!”
