Property of the Week


Each week I select a property that I personally love, if you would like to see others I’ve reviewed check them out here:  Stylish Stays


I’m a history buff and love our American heritage, so the property I selected to review this week is a beautiful historic home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C. You must take a look: Property #3014729.



What attracted me to this property:

The first thing that grabbed my attention was featured photo.  I have always wanted to stay in a row house in a big city. The headline also caught my attention because it mentions being walking distance to all of the monuments and museums on the National Mall, which is vital to me when I visit Washington, D.C. The property is very close to the metro so if I want to explore outside of the city, it’s just around the block. Finally, I love that the owners are trying to be green - we should all do our part to reduce our carbon foot print, even when traveling.


What I love about this listing:

The description is lovely. It provides just the right amount of information about the home and the surrounding area.  I appreciate the photo selection;  there are enough pictures of the interior and exterior of the home and of local amenities. I also love the owner’s response time: 100% within an hour. That is a seriously great traveler experience!

What could be improved:

The quality of some of the photos leaves a bit to be desired.  Higher resolution photos are a must.  There is one photo of the dining area and kitchen that was snapped at a very strange angle. Having to tilt your head to really view the picture is not ideal, though I applaud the effort of trying to do something different.

I love this townhome and I can’t wait until the next time I travel to Washington, D.C. so that I can book it for myself!
