Our Story

Alex Fuentes Gonzalez and Lara Hawketts hit hard times back in 2009 and started to rent their D.C. home’s basement on Airbnb to help supplement their income. It was incredibly successful, allowing them to pay their mortgage each month with the rental income alone.
After hosting hundreds of guests with success, Alex and Lara decided to expand their business by starting Home Sweet City to support other vacation rental hosts in cost effective ways, helping them to maximize their rental income. Home Sweet City now employs a fantastic property management team on the ground and manages short-term rental properties in and around the Washington D.C. area. 

We are currently looking for furnished short-term vacation rental properties to add to our inventory. Please contact us for more information on how much your property could earn you, and how our management service works!
