“Perfect Rental”
Reviewed 23 August 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This was the perfect rental for my family, well equipped and very clean. Rosie, the owner was simply awesome and very helpful. She made sure she had given us clear instructions on what to do, where to find the keys and the way around the house. There were some supplies in the fridge that we could use and lots of spices and condiments. She refunded our deposit in just a few days after we checked out, no need for phone calls to follow up. It is a little far off from shopping areas which makes it a very quiet and calm neighborhood. I would definitely stay at the Monroe House if I am ever in the DC area again.

“Cute house near the Metro.”
Reviewed 10 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our family of 4 enjoyed staying in the Monroe house. The house had all the comforts of home, including a lovely backyard. We rode the Metro exclusively for our DC excursions and found it to be fast and convenient. The neighborhood was a bit rough, but fine during the day. We would definitely recommend the Monroe house.

“Home for the holidays!”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in November 2015

The Monroe House felt like we came 'home for the holidays' during our Thanksgiving vacation to DC. This was our family's 1st time ever trip to DC and 1st ever Thanksgiving away from home and the house was so warm an cozy and inviting that we really felt like we were home. The wood floors and personal touch with the decor added to the cozy, home feeling. The backyard was inviting as well and even enough room to toss the football and chill on the back deck. We never took the Metro, used Uber and Lift instead which was the most convenient way to travel for a family of 4. We loved to come home to the Monroe House at the end of every busy day! My favorite room of the house was the kitchen because it was so warm, cozy and a great place to relax and enjoy the stereo while fixing dinner or breakfast. The Monroe House made our holiday vacation just perfect!

The Monroe house was excellent for all our needs the location was great easy to get to the Metro.
Rosie and Donald greeted us at the house and gave us an instructive tour so we understood the house and what it had to offer. The garden was a bonus and the surrounding environment.
Local restaurants were good especially Brooklands Finess which we used for dinner the atmosphere was cool.
The location for trips to Washington was good and we saw all the sites of interest.
My wife adult son and myself would have no hesitation in recommending this house to anyone who visits Washington DC.
