I stayed in the Ivy Mansion from January - March 2011, after returning from a foreign service posting abroad. The room I rented fell within the limit of the Home Service Transfer Allowance that I received upon my return to Washington, and negotiating payment with Dana, the proprietor, was a breeze. In addition, Dana’s bookkeeper provided me with timely receipts... More

My wife and I stayed at the apartment for five nights. It was clean and comfortable and felt like a second home. Dana was extremely helpful, recommending restaurants and attractions. Very convenient to the Metro, great restaurants, and upscale Connecticut Ave. shops such as the Kid's Closet. Located on a quiet, residential street one block from the Phillips Collection, an...

Opted for this instead of hotel when I came to DC on business. What a find! Hostess was awesome and could come and go as I pleased. So close to metro, shops and restraurants (be sure to check out Teaism and their special salty oat cookies right around the corner). Place was immaculate, beds super comfortable with extra pillows and... More

Couldn't find a more gracious host and idyllic setting. The rooms are great and so close to everything. I'll be back.

Our family (2 parents + kids aged 11 and 14) stayed in the garden apartment for four nights over Columbus Day weekend. What a terrific find this was: a lovely in-town neighborhood (tree-lined streets) just around the corner from Dupont Circle and its Metro. Dana met us when we arrived (hungry!), and supplied advice on wonderful eating spots all weekend... More

First off DC was great!! our host/owner Dana was awesome!, she went out of her way to check on us to make sure we were comfortable and was a great wealth of knowledge about the local area. We stayed in the basement apartment. It was plenty big for our family of 4. My teenage daughter loved the futon alcove near... More

I rented the downstairs apartment together with two colleagues while in D.C. for a conference. The apartment is spacious even though we used two sleeping couches additionally to the bed so we could have each our own bed. Beautiful neighbourhood, great location, walking distance to tons of restaurants & cafes. A tea place and coffee shop only 50m away. I... More

Garden apt has a modern kitchen, living room has older furniture. We had 3 people part of the time and 4 people for part of the... More
