Pleasant Stay in a great part of DC
We weren't sure what to expect at this was our first time using VRBO. I mean, how do you really know what you are getting by a few photos and a handful of reviews???
Here are our observations. This apartment was clean and we felt safe in this area, though DC residents love to sit on the steps that lead up to the front door. This building is right in front of a Metro bus stop. All those sitting on the steps, though, were seemingly apologetic and politely moved out of our way.
The property is in a wonderful location and, with a good pair of comfortable shoes, is easily walkable to many of DC's main attractions. We particularly enjoyed the Corner Bakery Cafe directly across the street for breakfast and afternoon sandwiches.
This apartment has a nice, clean bathroom, plenty of hot water for the shower and great towels. All linens seemed clean and the bed was comfortable enough. We did NOT see any bugs or roaches of any kind.
The back bedroom was quiet enough and provided for a good night's sleep. Though if anyone in the apartment above is walking around in hard-soled shoes you can easily hear them. The front part of the apartment, where the futons are located, is much more noisy. Street traffic is VERY noticeable there.
The apartment has a coffee maker and hot water maker for my morning tea, but just a motel-sized refrigerator without an ice maker. The place does have an iron and ironing board for your use. It has two TVs. Lots of magazines to read during idle times. There were plenty of maps, brochures and a helpful list of nearby stores and restaurants that Eddie provided. That was a nice touch, I thought.
The owner Eddie made sure all was well and we appreciate him introducing himself to us. He seemed genuinely interested in us enjoying our stay.
There was a slight cold spell during our stay and the heating system worked well.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here again.
