“Amazing stay with amazing people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

First time in DC and first stay at a B & B, Malolo was incredible! Dave and Gorge are friendly, helpful and accommodating. They made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Breakfasts were amazing thanks to Chef Gorge, Room was spacious, clean and felt like home. Found Malolo by chance and have not stopped bragging about our stay since we returned home, will definitely return to finish going through the museums.

Talofa kent m!

Chef and I are honored and pleasure of being your first B & B on your first visit to the Wash DC. We enjoyed having your both. To be honest, I was lost for the next few mornings without my early morning help in the kitchen (Kent)!!! LOL!

As the weather will have it, we had to pause on the outside kitchen but we look forward to this weekend to finish up! ...All that is missing is you and Leslie having cocktails while we sweat!! LOL!!

Oh before I forget!! THANK YOU for George's new TOY!! Many guests will enjoy what Chef comes up with using it!!

Mahalo and till we meet again!

We stumbled upon this B&B when looking for something reasonably priced and clean...what a wonderful find...friendly hosts, large clean comfortable rooms, and superb food! The complementary breakfast was fantastic..we are looking forward to our next visit.

We are so happy that you both were able to enjoy our beautiful home and enjoy Chef George's breakfast every morning. As you noticed, DC has a lot of things to do and explore! Chef and I look forward to your next stay...

We have a pillow missing their owner with us. LOL

The B&B is a little outside the city, but wonderful location if you have a car and it's free parking. If you don't have a car, the hosts drive you to and from the metro station - way above the service at other hotels/B&B's. Dave and Jorge are so friendly and welcoming and helpful. We had a late night one of the nights and came in to find that Jorge had been waiting up for us to be sure we got in alright. Our room was lovely and the breakfast was so wonderful. I could see that if we were there longer that Dave and Jorge would feel like family. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We chose a room that was ensuite, which is important to us.

Thank you for the wonderful comments. We are excited to have you visit from Nantucket! I was particular impressed that the "Shaka" hand sign was not foreign to you. I think it is really cool that Nantucket has an active surfing community. Thank you for the wonderful stay and we look forward to visiting Nantucket soon. SURF's UP!! Shaka!!

The Malolo was incredible. The hosts David & Jorge are the most friendly people you could ever meet, they couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are large and well decorated, the baths spotless. Breakfast was abundant, with many choices available. One evening Jorge prepared a private dinner for us, delicious! Our visit lasted 4 nights, and we will definitely return the next time we are in Washington.

Thank you for the wonderful comments. Chef and I are glad you enjoyed your stay and you had a chance to enjoy Chef's evening meal. Most importantly we hope your birthday weekend was one to remember.

Please give our regards to Notorious Pirate "One-Eye Jack". We hope the "pirate" is doing well and only a small reminder of your wonderful memories is left to remind you of an awesome time you had in DC. : ) ARRR Maties!!

We definitely enjoyed the stories of how life is your neck of the woods and would love to pass through some day soon to experience it ourselves. Joe say hi to R for us.

Take care.

Best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed in!! And we travel a lot!! Without a doubt, by far the most fun as well! We loved our hosts Jorge and David and after spending 5 days there, we felt like old friends and so sad to be leaving to move on. We actually missed them when we left, still sending texts and pictures from our next destination. We wished we could have spent more time with them. Out hosts went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and relaxing for us. Our room was quiet and the bed was great! The breakfasts were excellent, had a large variety of food and so plentiful that we never needed to eat lunch! Chef Jorge is amazing,very creative and knows exactly what he's doing. We really wanted to take him home with us!! The night that he cooked us a special dinner it was superb and we were very impressed. David always seemed at our beck and call whenever we needed anything. We were in dire need of a battery for my camera and David took us on a trip to Walmart and Best Buy that was an adventure and one we'll never forget. He helped guide us through learning the metro and always willing to help us find places we needed to go. We just can't say enough about this B&B. There were so many little nice touches that we can't even remember them all.We loved it, our hosts, and we will be back for sure!!

Thank you for the wonderful review and awesome memories. As you are our first "Bikers", we were really honored. We hope the rest of your stay in DC for the Memorial day event was fun.

Chef George loves the picture of him on your bike... Hmmm which reminds me. I will send pics over. We appreciate you taking the time to explain the importance of the "Rolling Thunder" event.

I hope you both took lots of pictures since we did have an adventure getting your battery!! LOL. "Arnita" will never be a name I forget anytime soon. Please take care and hope to see you again soon... Like next month! LOL

Fa'afetai lava for the wonderful comments. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and had an awesome time chatting with the other guests. WE MISS that accent and bubbly smiles in the morning. I always find it a treat for me to see folks from the South Pacific region!! We hope to travel out to you all soon! The pictures in town came out really nice. I think Chef posted them on Facebook already...

Please take and care and keep in touch.

You will love this place. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The rooms and shared bathroom was very clean and the food was ample and delicious. Your hosts, David and George, were wonderful and I felt like family. The b and b is a bit far from the Metro but your hosts are more than willing to take you back and forth. We will be staying there again the next time we visit the area.

Thank you for the wonderful comments and hope you two got to see a bit more of DC this time around. DC has a lot to do and it can be challenging to see and do everything. We hope you made it to the birthday party on time and celebrated such a wonderful day for your son. We miss you both and hope to see you again soon.
