My family (kids 6 and 10) really enjoyed our stay on Rhode Island Ave. The home is modern, clean and very comfortable. The house is an easy 5 minute walk to the Shaw Howard Metro in a very safe and friendly neighborhood. There are many close restaurants, bars and grocery stores within a short walk of this home. If you prefer not to walk, a Metro bus picks directly across the street with direct routes (G2 and G8) into the heart of DC. The owner of the home is very accessible and responded within minutes to any requests or questions we had. We were in Washington during a brutally hot week in early July and loved the ice cold air conditioning. I can't think of anything negative in terms of our stay, I would strongly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in Washington.
