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.

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.

Comfortable and close to Metro

  • 5 of 5
The owner was very responsive to whatever issues we had (we arrived a little early). This was close to the Metro, stores and plenty of choices of where to eat. There was a place named Petes right next to the Metro that had delicious Pizza! The Metro was about a five to seven minute walk and my sister and I felt safe in the area. Leave your car at home, you won't need it!

Very comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5
This property does have slightly unusual layout but it really worked for our family of four including 2 teenagers, with them taking the upstairs bedrooms. The location is perfect - very near the metro line, only 5 mins walk, and the restaurants and bars in the same area give a huge choice of places to eat and drink. The garden out the back was also a nice option to have. The accommodation layout means there is no living area, but we really did not find this an issue, as the downstairs bedroom can be used as a communal area if needed. The property was spotless, the kitchen well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Lois was easy to contact with any questions and very fast to relpy. Overall a really good find, and exceptional value for money.

Close to the Columbia Heights Metro

  • 4 of 5
Four friends rented the apartment for a week. There is a King bed at the first floor entry with a full bath leading into the small but adequate kitchen and dining area. The combo washer/dryer is located between the kitchen space and the back porch/yard. The steep steps located in the kitchen lead up to the second floor bedroom(s) and full bath. There is a Queen bed and twin bunk beds in this space. Lois, the owner, was very responsive when we had questions/issues. She also provided a parking permit as one couple drove in from NC (you do not need a vehicle as the Metro is a bit over a block away).

Family Vacation in DC

  • 4 of 5
My husband and two sons (16 & 11) enjoyed a 5 night stay in Columbia Heights just last week. As an owner of rental properties in Arizona and Victoria, BC, Canada, we know the challenges of maintaining rental accommodation and responding to guests queries and concerns. The positives:
unit was clean and the beds/linens were outstanding. So comfortable after long days.
location is perfect and as described in the photo's
very close to shopping, metro, etc.
The challenges:
there is no living area where occupants can gather other than the table in the kitchen.
keys were not where they were supposed to be left and contact numbers were not answered right away with no ability to leave voice mail. Luckily I had my laptop with the owner's email address and could tap into the wifi while still outside. We got the keys but it made for a rather tenuous start.
washer/dryer was out of service awaiting parts. We were able to call the owner's assistant and had a load of laundry done, however, had I known in advance we all would have packed a few more items. Would suggest letting guests know ahead of time to plan for alternate services.
The dishwasher broke down on day 2 and even though I let the owner's assistant know, we were still washing dishes for the rest of our stay by hand. That being said, stuff happens and we adapted once we got some dish clothes and a tea towel from the owner;s assistant.
My advice is to stock a few more essentials such as a cutting board, tea towels, placemats/table cloth to make sure guests can keep things clean and tidy.
Overall, a great stay and we would stay in this unit again given the opportunity. I would highly recommend.

Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5
We loved the vibrancy of this neighborhood and ate in several of the local restaurants and shopped at the Giant Supermarket. We stayed for a week with our two grandsons, both aged 11, and made the easy walk to the Metro everyday to take them to day camp. They loved the bunk bed and having pizza on the patio. The apartment is as advertised and is clean with plenty of towels, hot water and dishes and glassware in the kitchen.
