My family of four stayed here for a week in during our stay in the DC area. We all loved this basement apartment. It was well appointed with all of the amenities we needed, i.e. full kitchen, washer and dryer, iron, etc. The neighborhood was very nice as well and had an eclectic feel to it. The walk to the nearest Metro was about 10 minutes and wasn't bad at all. We also took the bus to the Washington National Cathedral, which stops right in front of the apartment. Allen provided excellent service. We shopped at the nearby Safeway and Harris Teeter for groceries and had pizza delivered one evening. Also ate at the Mintwood Place. Food and service were excellent and they accommodated our young children very well.
My only complaint is we heard people walking in the apartment above us starting early each morning.
