About Amy Rothberg

Hi ... I'm Amy and love sharing my home and neighborhood with my guests. I live only 3 miles away so am always available to offer help or advice. Originally from NYC (yes, you can tell from my accent), I came to DC for graduate school and just stayed. I have a technology background and spent my life going around the world designing data networks. I like to travel visiting the friends I've met through work but what I really love to do is come home to DC. It's truly a great town and I would love to share it with you.

Amy Rothberg purchased this house in 2007

Why Amy Rothberg chose Georgetown

Location, location, location! In the heart of historic Georgetown, you can't beat the location and the neighborhood. Located in Georgetown's desirable 'East Village', enjoy this safe and friendly neighborhood with easy access to dozens of restaurants, bars and shops. Easy access to all the monuments, museums, and DC sights.

What makes this house unique

After a long day of seeing the sights, come back to your DC getaway and relax in the spacious living room, private patio, or just close the bedroom door and take a nap. At 1750 square feet, it's a large house and there's plenty of room for everyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was great for our family visit. A large amount of space for six adults and in a great, walk-able location. Amy left beautiful fresh flowers and provided excellent information via the house information book.

Great House in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house and location for our family's visit to Washington!

Amy was very helpful and easy to get in touch with for our questions.

The neighborhood is beautiful. The house/kitchen had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The playground across the street was perfect for our 2 daughters. Easy walking distance to Georgetown restaurants/shopping. We used Lyft to get to DC attractions which worked very well. Hope to return sometime in the future.

Perfect location!

Location in Georgetown adjacent to the park was perfect! Would love to come back in the summer when we could use the courtyard more.

Amy was great to work with.

Excellent experience, as always.

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this house in Georgetown for several years. It suits our family especially well because we have small grandchildren and Rose Park is right across the street. This is a wonderful place for little children, dogs and tennis players. We also like the location with the ability to walk into Georgetown restaurants and shopping ,as well as, an easy walk to both Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom Metro stations. Amy goes out of her way to make her house comfortable . The furnishings are attractive and very functional. The kitchen is exceptionally well provided with cooking equipment and the appliances are top of the line. Great for anyone who would like to cook. Amy is always available and very responsive to any detail or need.

Historic Comfort in Georgetown

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay in this comfortable beautifully appointed home in historic Georgetown. Well located within a close walk to shops and transportation we rarely used our car during the week’s stay. Enjoyed our time just walking the neighborhood, adjacent Rose Park and taking in all of the historic city living. Would highly recommend a stay in this elegant home.

Amazing Experience and Property!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed in this property over Thanksgiving and had the most wonderful time. The location is perfect… The beds are very comfortable - with plenty of towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash...even make up remover wipes. The kitchen has top end appliances and coffee was provided. Our family loved the access to the park that was just across the street. Amy was kind enough to provide tennis rackets and tennis balls. A dream come true. When you leave this property, you are going to want to move to Georgetown, we wish we could have a second home there now. This does the trick until one of our sons decides he wants to go to Georgetown :-) thank you so much for sharing your home with our family… We are so looking forward to the next opportunity we have to come back.
