Ideal apartment and location

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two 12-year-olds, and I stayed for 4 nights touring Washington DC for my kids' first time. We highly recommend this apartment for the following reasons:
Convenient location
Very clean
Well appointed
Ease of working with the owners
Plenty of luxury linens
Comfortable bed

We parked when we got there in front of the apartment and didn't drive again until we checked out. We walked 15 minutes to the Capitol and Smithsonian. Other times we took the Metro only 1.5 blocks away to go to the Zoo, White House, and other tourist places. We always felt safe walking around and always saw others walking, too.

The Eastern Market was really neat. Multiple vendors selling fruit, veggies, meat, fish--just a block away. (The apple fritters from the bakery vendor were a breakfast treat every day!) Plenty of restaurants right around the corner for every taste (including Starbucks, Baskin Robbins, and Dunkin Donuts when you crave something familiar).

Seeing the Capitol building every time we left the condo was such a treat for me. "It's right there!" I told my kids they have no idea how fortunate they are to stay close enough to tour DC so easily. We were very pleased, and we look forward to returning for more apple fritters.

Houston Couple - First time to try VRBO

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently spent a week at this address. We absolutely loved it. We had never done VRBO beforeso we were pleasantly surprise. The apartment was in a great neighborhood. It was clean and had all the modern conveniences. Actually a home away from home. We rode metro everyday and the Eastern Market is just a block away so everything was very handy. The owners live on the property so they were available if we had any questions. I would highly recommend this rental. It has inspired us to rent again from VRBO.

Ideal Base for a holiday

  • 5 of 5
This cosy apartment was an ideal base for our 8 days in Washington. Our hosts welcomed us warmly and were happy to answer our questions. Proximity to Easten Market allowed us to buy and prepare fresh healthy food, which was a big plus. There were good restaurants 5 minutes away if we chose not to cook. Easy access to the subway was an advantage. The neighbourhood felt safe and we happily walked to restaurants after dark. The apartment was roomy and clean and the kitchen well equipped for basic cooking. Laundry meant we could keep on top of the washing.
Capitol Hill/Eastern Market is a good base for exploring Washington. We would recomend this apartment without hesitation.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for the entire month of April, and our stay was everything we expected and hoped for. The apartment was very comfortable for two of us, and our adult daughter joined us for a weekend and again we had more than enough space. Jane and Bret went out of their way to make our month enjoyable. Having them in the upstairs part of the building was a distinct advantage in that they could check on us without being intrusive. Staying in a charming neighborhood gave us the opportunity of experiencing Washington DC unlike staying at a hotel. We were able to eat all of our breakfasts and probably a third of our suppers because of the galley kitchen. The washer and dryer allowed us to keep up with our clothes for the month.

In addition to the above, the apartment is about location, locqtion, location. There are three restraunt areas within easy walking distance, as well as a Starbucks. Most importantly, the Metro is a little over a block away, as is a Circulator bus route which takes you to the Capitol, Union Station and the Nationals ball park for a dollar. The capitol and Supreme Court were within easy walking distance also.

There is absolutely nothing we would have changed about our stay, and we will recommend it to our friends should they vacation in DC.

Again, thank you Jane and Bret.

Spring Break Stay

  • 4 of 5
Pros
* Fantastic Location - 1 blk to the Eastern Market metro station and to Eastern Market, 1+ block to restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, other cute shops, 7-11, etc.
* Good size basement apartment
* Nicely furnished
* Nice owners who were generally helpful
Cons
* Hard pillows in both the bedroom and den (used a towel for a pillow instead)
* Uncomfortable bed and sofa sleeper (the sofa sleeper especially needs to be replaced)
* Only TV is in den so if someone is sleeping there, no TV for those who are still up (we're not big TV watchers but it would have been nice to have a TV to catch the news before bedtime while kids were already asleep)
* Small bathroom
* Bathroom mirror opens away from wall which is not a big deal except the bathroom is small and if two people are using the sink one needs to move aside in order to open mirror (this is minor but just irritating enough for me to mention)
* Kitchen is galley shaped connecting hallway to the bedroom and living room so if one person needed to pass while another one is cooking, the person cooking needs to move aside

I would give this place 3 1/2 stars. The location was really fantastic and the local amenities were great. The area had a true neighborhood feel to it. If the pillows and sofa sleeper were replaced (and possibly the mattress too) and a TV were added to the living room, I would give it 5 stars.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had been looking at hotels in the DC area for a family vacation. We couldn't find anything reasonable that was close enough to the Mall area. Then we tried VRBO which we had used for another vacation and found this wonderful little apartment in the basement of a row house in the Eastern Market neighborhood. It was terrific...and just what we needed for the week. And so reasonably priced compared to other similar places on VRBO in the DC area. The price is all inclusive (no extra fees for taxes, cleaning or parking).

Our children are 11 and 15. And we had enough room for sleeping and spending a little downtime when necessary. We put a single air mattress on the floor in the den area and it was just fine for the kids. The living area is bigger than the picture shows. The kitchen had what we needed to eat a few meals in to save on dining costs.

The location is terrific. Eastern Market is on the Blue/Orange lines...was rarely crowded and we never waited more than 4-5 minutes for a subway...most of the time, it was only 2-3 minutes. We felt very safe walking to and from the subway which is only a couple minutes away. The Eastern Market has fresh fruits, vegetable and a great little place to get breakfast and lunch.

Jane was very helpful with everything. She got us a parking permit for on street parking. We had no problem finding a place to park right near the apartment since we didn't really need the car while in DC.

Hard to beat this for convenience and price if you are looking to tour the area via subway. The subway system in DC is awesome compared to some other cities...very easy to use, safe and clean.

Thanks to Jane and Brett for making their little apartment available to us!
