“Beautiful, clean, peaceful, centrally located to restaurants and metro - we were very pleased.”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We spent four nights at this property. The owners helped us with everything from directions to locating things in the home. We were welcome to pick fresh veggies from the garden and the owner was accommodating even so far as letting us use her grocery bags and umbrellas. We were very comfortable, and it felt like home away from home. Perfect.

“Perfect place for families to stay in DC”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We loved staying at the Monroe house and plan to stay again any time we are in Washington, DC. The metro is a quick walk (5 minutes), and the downtown stops are close. The house is very cute with a nice size kitchen and bath. My children loved having their cat in the backyard. Rosie supplied everything we needed - towels, sheets, basic kitchen items, as well as metro cards, a parking pass, and supermarket cards. CVS and a small market are on the way to the metro, and a Giant Supermarket is a 5 minute car ride away.
The only minor issues, which were not really issues for us, are that the stairs to the bedrooms are steep, and there is a fire department right down the street. Also please note, that this is their house and not just a rental so be respectful..
The Monroe house is the prefect place for families and couples who want a quite place to stay but still be close to all the attractions. It was prefect for our family.

“Perfect in Every Way”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Traveling with my husband and 2 teen boys, this house was a jewel. Easy walk to the Metro, a nice driveway to keep our car safely parked, easy access to grocery stores and the house was so spacious and very updated. Rosie sees to every detail, with a binder full of information on touring, Metro cards to use, a computer and that foot massager! We welcomed the newly installed air conditioning units, as it was HOT outside, but the units kept everything wonderfully cool. The kitchen is truly a fully stocked kitchen, even including some much needed basic spices. We loved seeing sweet Tiger kitty each day, too. The only down side (and it's really nothing) is the moth ball smell in the basement. But, it is understandable, as the house is older and basements can be damp. The neighborhood is safe, clean and well kept. Rosie's neighbor was very helpful as well.
