What a gem. The apartment was ideal for our needs. It is decorated in an African theme & we became quite attached to the garden giraffe =). The kids enjoyed having their own space in the back bedroom and the unit is much longer than it appears. Having a kitchen, W/D, TV/DVD player, all made our stay that much better. I appreciated the electric kettle as I drink a lot of tea. We did not really interact with the owners except at check in, but that was b/c everything was set up so well. Quiet, beautiful neighborhood. Able to get fresh veggies at Farmer's Market down the street on weekend. CVS close by the Metro stop for odds and ends. Really, this place is great & when we come back to DC, we will stay here again. Thank you Gordon & Carla, & everyone at B&B DC, for making our vacation stay so easy!
