My wife and I stayed here with our 3 kids (9, 6 and 2) and her father for a week in mid April. The listing was accurate, and we were very satisfied with the accommodations. Booking was simple and straightforward. Upon arrival, everything was just as expected - clean linens, clean house, etc. The owner answered a couple of e-mails very promptly during our stay to answer questions, and in fact stopped by one day to get the vacuum cleaner out of a locked area so we could clean up thoroughly after ourselves. The house is across the street from a middle school, and the neighborhood seemed quite safe. The nearby market (2.5 blocks - about a 3 minute walk) was sufficient for odds and ends and you could survive on this store alone if needed, but we did make a trip to Whole Foods (1440 P Street NW) upon arrival to shop for the week. There was also a nice bagel shop on the corner of 3rd and Massachusetts where we bought a dozen bagels for the week. We also found that Mr. Henry's (601 Pennsylvania avenue SE - just under a mile walk - easy and flat) had a "kids night" upstairs every Tuesday from 5:30-8pm that was wonderful. Movie playing for the kids, very accepting staff, and good food at a good price. Was a nice break from cooking dinner that evening! The Metro is an easy 3.5 block walk away at Union Station, and this was the way we got around all week.
The only down side was the stairs. This is a 3 level unit with the kitchen, dining room and a 1/2 bath on the first floor, a bedroom and living room on the 2nd floor and 2 bedrooms and a full bath on the 3rd floor. Be ready for some exercise and some careful bathroom planning so you're not running up and down the stairs all day - especially if you've got the 2nd floor bedroom! On the other hand, the bedrooms are well spread out, and some people can stay awake late and not disturb others - especially great for families!
If we're going to DC again, and want to be in town, we will definitely consider staying here again, and would recommend it.
So glad that we found this place! It has easy access to Union Station, a nice mini mart close by and a quiet neighborhood! It made our stay very enjoyable! The house was perfect for our group. The owners were very nice and very easier to deal with, we had no issues with the house, it worked out good for us!! I would recommend this place to my family and friends! We got our deposit back right away and the owners were great to deal with! If I get out there again would want to rent from them again!
The house is very nice and not noisy. We had everything inside.
Very close to DC center/Mall. We did it via renting bike via public city bike renting.
One station is at Union Station.
The owner was very quick to answer all my request and send back very quickly the deposit.
Just be ready to "climb" because the house has 3 levels.
We arrived by train and where tired but happy to be "home." It wasn't a WOW, but seemed okay. Dark with little lighting but at least air conditioned when we arrived.
I liked that there were information flyers on a side table but they were too many and just looked disorganized. There was actually mail in between the three stacks of paper. Not a big deal but a telling sign of more to come.
I really wanted to fall in love with the house, but when we went up the stairs to the second floor and the first thing we see is the curtains were badly ripped. It all really started to go down hill from there. Then I continued to the next floor and as I bend over to pick up something that rolled under the drawer in the room with the two beds I see how dirty it was under the drawer. So much dust had build up under there. The best was when I hear a scream from the room below us as our other companions find a bug in their bed. I did not sleep well in this house and then the owner claims WE left the house a mess according to her housekeeper. I think she needs to get a new housekeeper. This is what bugged me the most as we have stayed in other homes and never had such issues and yes as another reviewer said they have so many rules.
My husband, myself and four children (ages 8-14) had a great week in DC. This property was in a perfect location, only about a 5 min walk from Union a Station. We took the metro to all the sites and it was very easy to get around. The property itself was a great set up and we appreciated having a kitchen so that we didn't have to eat out every meal. The neighborhood was beautiful, lots of flowers and cherry blossoms everywhere. We felt perfectly safe and comfortable. The landlord was easy to work with and very responsive. We would highly recommend this property to anyone! As other reviewers mentioned, the only hesitation would be if the lessee had trouble with stairs. As a 3 story property, there are lots of them. :)
My husband and I stayed here with our 3 kids (twin boys 15 and daughter 11) for 7 nights this past June. We arrived very late at night and found the lockbox just where the owner said it would be and stepped inside to a nice cool room - humidity was high and having the air conditioning already on was a good omen for our stay!
Bottom floor consists of dining room, kitchen and 1/2 bath. Second floor has the family room and 1 bedroom with queen bed. Third floor has the full bathroom with 1 bedroom containing a queen bed and a 2nd bedroom containing twin beds. Stairs are steep and plentiful - make sure you and family members can handle them. All bedrooms were surprisingly spacious with dressers and closets. Full bathroom was small but functioned just fine. Kitchen was clean and had all utensils and appliances you could want. (We only cooked 1 meal in - no troubles.) I noticed in other reviews people had a problem with the bars on the windows. This was not a problem for us. Photos on site were very accurate as was the description. I would say some small things could be spruced up but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to a friend or family member.
The location of the property is fantastic. Street was quiet even though it is across the street from a middle school, and it is only 2 blocks from Union Station. Five sit down restaurants were around the block, 2 coffee shops were 2 blocks away and Union Station also has every fast food, coffee etc you could want. We sometimes were out late and never felt unsafe - this Capitol Hill neighborhood seemed to be full of young families and single working people.
We had a fantastic experience in DC and took full advantage of all the things to do and see. Lots of books and brochures in the house regarding DC and things to do.
