We could not have asked for a better situation for our family of 5. We were so comfortable in this home and it was very convenient to Metro and Giant Supermarket. We toured all of the attractions by Metro and even jumped on the Old Town Trolley tour and took in all the sights there were to see and returned to this cozy home and prepared simple dinners in the very lovely, full equipped kitchen at the end of each day. Lois Houston, the property manager, was the BEST and right on target with her recommendations of this apartment and with her advice for our travels through the area. She was gracious and accommodating in every way. The parking is a little tricky as pointed out in the other reviews. After the first day, we just parked our car in the U- Street Parking Garage by the Target Mall around the corner and for a mere $20 per day, left our car there for the balance of our trip. We took the Metro everywhere and didn't have to think twice about figuring out the street parking situation, a small, worthwhile daily investment that I would highly recommend.
