DC VISIT

  • 4 of 5
The beds were very comfortable, soft linen. Perfect location, parked the car and used the metro a few blocks away. Parking is an issue, but were able to obtain a parking permit from Lois for $15.00, this is the cheapest we found. Kitchen was well stocked, and having the washer and dryer was perfect timing, because we had been traveling for a week and needed to wash clothes. Grocery store around the corner, also coffee places, as well as target etc if needed. Bathroom in hall, but convenient, showering in the tub felt a little unsteady because the bottom was curved, but the water was hot and still enjoyed the shower. My sister and I are over 55, had no problem with the stairs, but it is on the third floor, no elevator. Lois called within a few minutes when we called about the parking permit, very attentive and helpful. Property was clean and well stocked, would stay again.

PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
The location is perfect, Metro only a few blocks away and easy to get to downtown area. Neighborhood was safe for walking day and night. The neighborhood is a beautiful historic area. Target, Starbucks and grocery store within walking distance (in case you don’t know, plastic bags to carry your stuff back cost 5? a bag!) Overall the area was perfect. The apartment was clean, kitchen perfect for light cooking and washer/dryer came in handy. The stairs did not bother us, only when arriving and leaving to carry luggage up and down. Lights were always on in the entryway for us. Only downside was the water pressure in the shower. The bathroom is outside living area, but you do not share it with anyone and did have your privacy. The Owner and Maintenance Mr. Chiazo were right there for any needs. Loved the 102 year old building, thanks!

EVERYTHING DELIVERED.

The third floor room rental worked great for us. It was great to have a place to do laundry and cook a meal. Bed was comfy and well furnished. Two blocks from Columbia Heights Metro.

CLEAN, SAFE AND CLOSE TO THE METRO

  • 4 of 5
This apartment was, for the most part, perfect for us (2 adults). The listing and pictures were accurate, the apartment was clean, there were plenty of towels and linens. We felt like we had enough room to have personal space at the end of the day. The kitchen had everything we needed, although we didn't cook so I can't speak to the number of pots and pans. And having a W/D in the apartment was great.
Only a couple of negatives: the water pressure in the shower is not strong at all. And there were nights when we'd come home to find no light on so we'd be trying to navigate stairs in the dark (once with a case of water!). I think a small lamp that stays on in the foyer would be a really good idea. Also, keep in mind that all those stairs are a challenge after a long day of sightseeing.
The owner was not always quick to communicate with me, which was unfortunate. I was very concerned about what to do with our luggage the day of our arrival since we were landing 3 hours before check-in. I had emailed her the day before our arrival but did not receive a response. Luckily, we were able to get in touch with Mr. Chorizo (I'm sure I'm spelling that wrong), who appears to handle maintenance and he let us know that our keys would be ready for luggage drop off.
This apartment is about a 5 minute walk to the Metro which was incredibly convenient. There's also a grocery store, Target, Starbucks all within a 5 minute walk. We ate a couple of times at Z Burger, which was really good! We felt safe walking the neighborhood and enjoyed all the architectural details of the townhomes.
All in all, I think this was a really good rental property and I would recommend it.

GREAT LOCATION AND CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
Excellent property close to Metro and quiet. We enjoyed our stay very much and Lois was excellent. Upstairs location and quiet. Bathroom is outside living area down the hall but there is no one else on the floor so you have all the privacy you need. Thanks for a great vacation.

SAFE HAVEN IN THE CITY.

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay even though we trekked up to the third floor. There is no elevator but it wasn't difficult. Lighting at night isn't good on the stairs. Could really use an electrician to put in a motion sensor that comes on the stairs. We had to use our phone flashlights a couple of times because the light switches are on different floors. Same with the entry. Lighting is very dim and needs to be on at night for people arriving. One night the lights tripped a breaker and we had no light in the bathroom or kitchen. I think this has happened before so seems they need a new breaker or service panel. Would have been nice to be able to exit the house so we could have simply switched the breaker ourselves. Instead I called the wrong number (I guess) and we spent the rest of the evening in the dark for those areas. Thankfully the lights in the bedroom worked. That said, the area is safe. You take the Mt. Pleasant exit to come out right where the shops are. Cross over the street and there's a grocery store that stays open late. There are two doors you unlock so feel secure in the building. Nice having a kitchen though we didn't do any cooking. Washer and dryer are nice though you have to plan to use it as the time requested for usage is during times you may be out sightseeing or in meetings. Good decor, wood floors, brick walls. Two reasons for four instead of five stars: the electricity issues and the price was higher than what was quoted on the site. The higher price should be on the site and the owner can always provide a discount thus making the guest happy instead of going up. The owner is responsive and there's a nice guest book to help with items around the area. Safe, quiet, clean, comfy. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting DC.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the feedback. We have since placed a sign for the guest to remember not to turn off the motion deter emergency hall lights because that light would have activated despite any unexpected outages.
I have since made the recommended improvements and welcome this Guest and any guest back anytime. Again, feedback is always appreciated as it gives me an opportunity to make my valued Client's stay most comfortable.
