Beautiful, Classic Home That's Family Friendly  

How lovely to have a home that style-wise is suitable for both children and adults. We appreciated that it was a beautiful, classic home with many noteworthy architectural features and impeccable decor. It was a real treat for our guests—but also family friendly. The home provided baby gates and a cabinet filed with kids table and flatware. The two outdoor areas were intimate yet spacious. Our contact throughout our stay was very timely and accommodating. We couldn’t have asked for a better host! My husband also found the online instructional manual very helpful. The property does have very steep stairs so be mindful if you have older guests. And one of the “bedrooms” is through the master which in our circumstance wasn’t ideal. However, there is a bedroom, full-bathroom and pull-out sofa on the main floor. Overall—a unique, special place to make memories.

Absolutely lovely  

The Airbnb was absolutely lovely! The space was very clean and included snacks, water, and everything else we needed for our stay. Jennie was also quick to respond to any questions we had and checked up on us throughout our stay. It is also located in a very safe area with lots of cafes and restaurants around. We definitely recommend this Airbnb to anyone visiting the area!

Felt like a 5-star hotel  

Felt like a 5-star hotel, and also cozy at the same time! Whole family loved it. Alexas in almost every room made it very easy to control music and kids liked those. Smart TVs, was able to login to my Netflix account, plus hi speed wi-fi. I loved the bedside USB ports / electrical outlet so I can have my phone next to me at night...I might do that at my house too.

Modern, newly remodeled bathrooms...the master was gorgeous. Historic home in a historic neighborhood was just what we wanted. Endless charm with original floors and windows...love seeing houses that are renovated, but stay true to history and keep the best parts. I loved the decor...I'm a sucker for bold paint. I especially loved the dining room. Stunning! My fave spot was the outdoor seating area for morning coffee.

Location could not be better. We literally walked everywhere and walked down along the Potomac river. Tons of great places to eat nearby and easy to do takeout. Parking is also easy, but we didn't end up using our car at all. Also lots of great stores that I enjoyed visiting. We plan to stay again next time we are in town!

Like a 5-star resort  

Definitely one of the best vacation home rental experiences we’ve ever had. Even before we booked, the Poshabodes host was very responsive— we had a number of questions about the cleaning protocols, as my husband falls in the high-risk category for Covid. The host reassured us that the highest standards of cleanliness and disinfecting are used in all Poshabodes properties, including electrostatic sprayers. And, she was right – the house was spotless when we arrived. During our stay, we started our days with coffee on the patio and ended our days at the fire-pit while the kids roasted marshmallows. We also enjoyed the basement area with pool table and bar. So much to enjoy at this house! We felt as if were in a 5-star resort, but had it all to ourselves! We loved the fluffy white towels and robes, welcome basket of goodies and bottle of champagne. And when we booked, a concierge reached out to us to answer questions about the area and even helped coordinate our anniversary dinner (excellent recommendation—Sanford Restaurant). The home itself was spectacular, with lots of places to entertain— what a great get-away to spend our anniversary with our family. We highly recommend it and hope to return!

Lovely stay in Old Town  

It was a terrific experience from booking to check out. The home is charming and exactly as described - great location just off of King Street. We also appreciated special touches throughout the home - lovely floral arrangements, treats in the kitchen, fluffy throws and robes etc. (Also great internet connection and Smart TVs). We look forward to returning.

5+ stars!  

We were thrilled when this property popped up in our search! Staying in a home when we travel with our family of 5 is ideal, but we often end up in a hotel because the quality of the choices can be disappointing. This house was beyond fantastic! It was the perfect location-- in the middle of the exciting downtown area, but part of the quaint Old Town neighborhood. We were within a few blocks walk to everything... shopping, dining, waterfront. The house has a great historic vibe, but feels fresh and new with updated kitchen and bathrooms. The furniture and decor is high quality and beautiful. Small details like luxurious bedding, robes, slippers (and a welcome basket and bottle of champagne upon arrival) made it feel like a 5-star hotel! Hi-speed wi-fi, smart TVs and a printer made it even more convenient. We will definitely seek out this property for future visits. Wish there were comparable properties everywhere we travel!

Wonderful luxurious retreat with all the special touches  

We’d give our stay 7 stars if we could! Our family weekend getaway was a wonderful luxurious retreat thanks to all the special touches provided by Poshabodes! The location was perfect with proximity to the water and old town and a 4 minute walk to restaurants and shops. The house, while historic and full of charm, has all updated bathrooms with luxurious finishes, softest sparkling white towels, bathrobes, and hotel slippers. All the bedrooms outfitted with hotel bedding and convenient chargers throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, cookware, bakeware, and seasonings. Appliances are also fit for a chef. Our hosts went above and beyond with the special touches, like fresh flowers, fresh croissants and pastries, and a variety of beverages to greet us. The checkout process was extremely easy. All we had to do was turn out the lights and lock up. Everything else was taken care of. Considering we’re living through a pandemic, knowing the attention to cleanliness was taken by our hosts was reassuring and much appreciated. All in all this has been the best Airbnb stay we’ve had to date and we can’t wait to return again soon!

Elegant, charming, historic, comfortable house  

This elegant, charming, historic, comfortable house in a perfect location is “posh” in every way. Our 2-night visit of 5 adults arriving after dark began with welcoming soft music, candles, flowers, and outstanding stylish decor. After a quick tour we took a 15 minute, delightful walk in Old Town to a fabulous Italian restaurant on King St.

Once back, we explored all the goodies in our bedrooms and bathrooms (stylish, new, sparkling clean), lush bedding (beyond posh, the best I’ve experienced), fluffy towels, bathrobes and slippers and all the toiletries you could imagine. We all raved about our super comfortable beds and started our day with morning coffee from the top of the line Keurig coffee maker with frother, then took a 30 minute Uber drive for a day in DC, back home to fun gourmet cooking in the gorgeous, fully equipped kitchen (better equipped than mine at home!), dinner at our elegant dining table with fresh flowers and after dinner drinks in the lovely sitting room with romantic music from magic speakers. Upon a much too soon departure, we were told to “just lock the door”. We had been treated like royalty.

We are new to PoshAbodes—now we get what the name means! The 70 year olds were slightly intimidated by the high-tech locks and systems but Jennie instantly answered every question. She made everything easy and comfortable.

Old Town is full of history, festive, and loaded with shops and restaurants. It is small enough to be manageable and big enough to be exciting and full of life. Brockett House is within easy reach of everything there. Above all, Brockett House is immaculate. But even above that, the house is drop-dead attractive, historic and modern, a delightful place to be and a joy to call home.

Beautiful Home in a Fantastic Location  

Splendid luxury home with tons of charm and character made for a great family escape. The layout provided great space for everyone to hang together or relax alone. The outdoor garden area was a favorite for all of us to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. The stunning décor accentuates the historic and architectural features of the home. And the luxury bedding and towels plus other special touches made this an amazing find! Not to mention, the ideal location with many top-rated stores and friendly local establishments. O’Connell’s Irish Pub was a highlight and we loved the different levels and private booths offering us a bit more comfort in these uncertain times. We don’t typically rebook the same place – but this will definitely be the exception. #HugeBrockettHouseFans
