Four moms and their 13 year old sons stayed here for 5 days in July 2014. This was perfect! The house is large and has 2 levels, allowing us to spread out after a long day of sightseeing. We were surprised at how large it is. The kitchen was very well appointed and fully updated. We appreciated the Keurig and coffee pods supplied by the owners. There was plenty of room for several of us to be in the kitchen working at one time and the large dining table allowed us to sit together for a meal. Plus, the 4 bathrooms (3 full, 1 half) made for no hassles over showers--making our mornings quick & painless! With 8 people showering within an hour or two of each other, I worried about having enough hot water or water pressure. No problem! We had both.
The location of the property was perfect! We walked nearly everywhere and when it was too far we took the Metro (South Capitol) which was just a few blocks away. Cabs were easy to catch just a block away. And, the bike rentals, also a block away, made getting to the monuments easy. About 1-2 blocks away there were some really good restaurants. We the Pizza was an interesting & tasty approach to pizza. Pret a Manger opened while we were visiting and made for an easy picnic one day. Plus, there were two coffee shops nearby.
Also worth mentioning is that the apartment was spotless! It was very clean with nice towels and linens. If I am back in DC again, I will definitely book this property again. I just don't know what another property could offer that this one didn't have.
