DEWL was created by world-travelers looking to combine the things they love about staying comfortably, exploring freely, and relaxing easily into one thoughtfully curated place.
Too often hotels and resorts provide a sterile place to sleep without embracing the very culture that their travelers have come to visit. We’ve set out to build something different. We’ve set out to create places where you can do everything you love with love.
Our team began it's foray into hospitality with managing individual homes as short term rentals in Washington DC. We then expanded across the United States and into the Caribbean. All the while, we saw the things our guests loved about short term rentals and staying in comfortable homes and took the lessons to Playa del Carmen in the beautiful Riviera Maya of Mexico. We crafted a space for you to experience all of the amazing things the region has to offer. We proudly call our first property DEWL: Kahlo. This building is our homage to Frida Kahlo because we wanted to build a space for you to create a vacation that’s as unique, individualistic and authentic as Mexico’s famed artist herself. The property is perfectly positioned in a residential neighborhood just a couple blocks from the beach and shopping but around the corner from local favorite markets, restaurants and bars.
With the project still underway, we’re proud to announce DEWL:DC. The second DEWL property is just a couple of blocks from the White House and right in our back yard.
OUR NAME is OUR PHILOSOPHY
DEWL, pronounced ˈdü-əl, was born from our team's passion to be proud of everything we do. As we decorate, design, and furnish each home we do it with enthusiasm and eager anticipation that when you arrive you can sense that we thoughtfully and lovingly considered everything. That love for what we do should be palatable. Our insatiable quest to do everything with love was the inspiration for the name - DEWL. We wanted the name to also be a mantra to constantly remind ourselves of how to prepare each room, treat each guest and respect the culture of each neighborhood and region we expand into... Do Everything With Love
