We really enjoyed our one-week stay at the firefly house. It was a great stay, especially because the flat was very nicely situeated and furnished. We enjoyed especially the terrace in the backyard and the air hockey table.

Great location. Very convenient to go to the DC area and Maryland area. Not the best neighborhood but definitely safe to walk around. There is a trail around and a museum across the house. In general a nice place to stay.
