About The Management Company

My name is Lois Houston and I am originally from Philadelphia (The City of Brotherly Love). I have thoroughly enjoyed living in Washington, DC for over 25 years and plan on retiring here. I continue to enjoy the tourist sites and the many interesting and historic places that Washington DC and nearby Virginia and Maryland have to offer. I love bumping into famous people here like Senators on Capitol Hill and even see the President's and Vice President's motorcade racing through the city. Since this property is conveniently located near the METRO, it truly simplifies travel to the numerous sites. For example, the White House, The Smithsonian Museum, The Kennedy Center, The Spy Museum, Mount Vernon and countless other places. My desire is that my guests will experience the joy that I have experienced, while staying in a very comfortable home. My desire is to provide an immaculate home with fine accessories at an affordable price. My ultimate goal is that my guest will consider staying in my home each and every time their visit brings them to the Capital City. Therefore, I warmly welcome the opportunity to receive honest feedback, via e-mailf from every single guest that enter my home. Of course I encourage your reviews also.

The Management Company purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Management Company chose Columbia Heights

Washington DC has been my home since 1986 and I do enjoy such a transient city where one has the opportunity to meet so many people of so many diverse backgrounds. I take great pride in living in The Capitol City where one has the opportunity to bump into law makers, senators, diplomats, students from all over the world and many other interesting people. My 20 plus years living in Washington DC has provided me the opportunity to provide a comfortable home in a convenient location at a reasonable price.

What makes this apartment unique

This Home is equipped with the following amenities: Iron and Ironing Board, Shopping Cart, hair dryer, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, few periodicals (compliment of the owner other valued guests), umbrella, fine china and many other items for your convenience. The home is located on a residential street that is conveniently located only one block away from a vibrant commercial area. There is a Marshalls, Target, Star Bucks, Ruby Tuesday, Five Guys, Day Spa, Radio Shack, Federal Express, Staples, Hair Salon, Sports Store, The Washington Dance Institute and other places of interest. The home is located on a major thoroughfare that is heavy with traffic heading downtown DC in the mornings yet it is a street that grows quiet in the evening and night. There is a lot of foot traffic with friendly neighbors who walk their dogs and many cyclist who utilize the bike path. The Columbia Heights Metro is located about two and a half city blocks from this location. It is a 5 minute walk (or less) from the apartment to public transportation.

DC Home

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Very convenient for family as kids stayed in upstairs bedroom. Restaurants, groceries, shops and laundromat all within 1-2 blocks. Metro is 1 block away and very convenient. Home is clean and safe and would stay there again.

Family vacation

  • 3 of 5

Ours was a Spring break trip with 3 middle schoolers. Great sleeping space due to bunk beds. I wish there were sitting space to hang out after long walking outings; had to watch TV sitting on beds. Close to food and grocery which was super convenient. Washer/dryer was unavailable, which is a huge bummer when traveling for a week's stay. Kids had nice fenced small backyard to play.

Great for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 family and friends visit DC and stay in the first and second floor apartments of this great house. It's very clean and comfortable, close to public transit and restaurants, and the management is very responsive.

Good house for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 out-of-town friends and family visit us and stay in the first and second floor apartments of this house, and it worked out perfect! Everyone had their own bed, and the large dining room was perfect for group meals. The house was clean and comfortable, and the landlord was very responsive.

Just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

The size, layout, area, amenities and all were exactly what we wanted. Traveling with 3 teenagers, a 5 year old and service dog means you need a lot of room and this fit he bill. The price is exceptional for the area. Only down side is parking but it is typical DC parking so nothing can really be done about that. The owner and manager were very hospitable and informative. We will definitely recommend to is property to friends, family and strangers. Will stay with again!

Awesome Getaway! Awesome Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

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.
