Whilst anyone who reads my blog might know I’ve had mixed results with Airbnb, but overall I’ve used it hundreds of times and probably stayed in Airbnbs for at least a year of my life in total! Today I’ve got a guest post from Kate Howard, who has kindly hand-picked her favourite 5 Airbnbs in Washington DC for us to take a peek at!
When you’re traveling with a big group or your little toddler for a family vacation, you might be worried about finding the right place to stay. Hotels are nice but they may not always be the best place for your family, and you might be looking for a bigger, more home-like atmosphere. Well, thankfully Airbnb exists, and there are tons of options to look through. In fact, my husband and I have some experience researching Airbnbs for families who want to stay in and around DC.
Of course, it would be nice to be able to stay in an interesting and unique Airbnb in DC. Someplace… unforgettable! So here’s 5 unique and fun Airbnbs I found in Washington DC!
1. Huge DC Home
This Airbnb home is in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of DC and it is BEAUTIFUL. This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is incredibly furnished like royalty. The home features plenty of rooms and beautiful furniture, as well as a beautiful chef’s kitchen, dining room, grand staircase, wet bar, spa marble shower and everything you can imagine should go into a dream home. If you’re visiting DC with a group and you want to feel majestic, take a look at this Airbnb.
Nearest Metro Station: Georgia Ave-Petworth Station
2. Panoramic Potomac View
This beautiful home in the Old Town Alexandria area is steps from the waterfront park by the Potomac river. The home has a rooftop deck with a breathtaking panoramic view of DC. Four stories tall, the townhome is comfortable and close to all the fun and restaurants by the Potomac. The metro is also easy to get to with the free trolley, so exploring the DC sights is a breeze.
Nearest Metro Station: King Street
3. Luxurious Modern Home
This Airbnb is every modern family’s dream come true. If this isn’t unique and fun, I’m not sure what is. The house is in Bethesda, and only a short distance to the Bethesda metro station, Downtown and Georgetown. The house is architect designed and surrounded by nature. The many windows look out into trees and the Potomac River. There’s tons of space and the mix of modern urban and nature is a wonderful environment for your DC trip with family and friends!
Nearest Metro Station: Bethesda
4. Exclusive Water Catamaran!
What’s more unique than staying on water? Not much! You can rent this yacht through Airbnb and enjoy the gentle bob of the yacht on the Potomac. The yacht has everything you need with bedrooms, small kitchen, two decks and a two person hammock to relax and look out at the water. Definitely what I consider fun!
Nearest Metro Station: Navy Yard
5. Luxury Loft
Staying in a loft is always nice with the open space. Staying in a loft that has the most interesting decorations imaginable? Awesome. Only a block away from NoMa metro station, this Airbnb rental is all urban and all comfortable. It’s situated in a large apartment complex that also features a rooftop pool, hot tub, sauna and outdoor eating area. This apartment has one bedroom with two bed, so it’s nice for a small family and your little one to enjoy together.
