Tarus and Yolanda would like to welcome guests from all cultures and backgrounds to The Nelson Manor. They delight in meeting people who inspire magnificent conversations. The Nelson Manor is open to all who wish for a "Home away from Home" stay while visiting "THE DMV" (D.C., Maryland and Virginia region).
Tarus and Yolanda purchased this home in 2001 and raised their two children, Tarus Jr and Asia, between 2001 - 2017. Their love for hospitality and entertaining over a number of years contributed to the natural progression into the Hospitality Industry. As their children began leaving home, The Nelson's saw an opportunity to capitalize on the home-sharing through Airbnb where their journey first began in January 2017.
They quickly became popular Super Hosts due to their quiet space, elegant home decor, prompt customer service and attention to detail. The Nelsons knew they had something special to share with traveling families, transitioning families, small traveling groups to the Nations capital. Ultimately, they decided to expand and launch on their own platform Nelson Manor Vacation Rental Property in Spring 2017.
