This is a fantastic place - super clean and comfortable, great beds and towels, and a beautiful back yard all in a fun, welcoming neighborhood. The apartment was completely quiet and offered a fun living room gathering place for the 3 colleagues staying there, with enough privacy for each in the 3 bedrooms. The kitchen is very well outfitted with enough cutlery, plates, glasses, and cooking utensils to cook a real meal and invite friends over. And the owners are fast communicators.

Karen,s accommodation is, in a word, outstanding. Clean, comfortable, plenty of everything.....lots of towels, cutlery, plates, cups, wine glasses, washing machine , dryer, great lounge, dining area, big out door area with plenty of seating. The biggest plus for me was the space, space in the bedrooms space in the lounge / dining / kitchen, so much space. It will comfortably suit three couples.

Karen's Carriage House is fantastic! It was a perfect place for five of us to call home for a long weekend. The location could not have been better. It's nestled within a quiet interior courtyard but within minutes of busy streets ready for you to explore, find coffee, a drink, or good food. The place is clean and comfortable and the kitchen seemed well stocked with utensils, plates, and cookware. The memorable yellow couch is big and comfy and a great center piece for chilling out with friends after a long day or playing an epic board game. Karen was a prompt and informative host and accommodating to travel schedules. Thanks again!

This was an awesome location for our intent and purpose, and conveniently located, and would definitely recommend it to stay for a small group. Karen was an awesome host, in that the information that was provided was sufficient and her communication was prompt and concise; the home was clean and as described. I would definitely re-book and recommend.

We have been restoring historically significant property for over twenty years. Happy to share our downtown DC "special places". We host a small collection of boutique quality properties: a 4 bedroom Townhouse, 3 and 6 bedroom Firestation Carriage House. All have private furnished roofdecks, easy metro access and parking available. We welcome discerning and caring guests. Most of all we hope you stay with us with each visit to DC. We love travel, food and our four children. We would appreciate it if you please share us with your friends and co-workers. I am a proud serving Navy Reservist.
