The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this apartment in 2012

This apartment is practically brand new. We gutted it out and redid the whole thing in 2012.

Wonderful apartment in Washington

  • Submitted: Jul 23, 2013

The apartment was lovely; very well situated 10 minutes walk from the Metro, highly maintained, well equipped and spotless. The owner was very helpful. As a ground floor apartment, we expected to hear noise from the separately let upstairs apartment (which was wonderful as the owner let us have a chance to look around at the beautiful conversion) but this was not a great disturbance. Our party of two couples had a really good five day holiday based on this apartment in Washington.

good choice

after a rather long and exhausting journey from Germany we (family of four) were very pleased and lucky to have this property as a great beginning for our upcoming East-coast trip. Very clean, very good equipped, very "american" and absolutly cosy. We started to most of the Washington sightseeing by public bus .Bus-stop just across the street. We felt good and professional hosted by Allen, although we didn`t meet him personally, what we regret. We highly recommend this apt. The only critic is that it is very noisy when the upper apt. is also occupied the same time.

Owner's Response: Rainer,
Thank you for the great review. We suspected that the upstairs guests had 2 young children running around in the early hours of the day. We installed plush carpets on the floors upstairs (breaks our hearts covering those gorgeous 110 years old red oaks) and instituted a 9pm-9am quiet time policy for the upstairs guests. Since then we have not had any noise concerns.

What a find!

This property is very clean, comfortable, visually upbeat and well designed with nice amenities.

Our family of seven met here for six days of exploring DC. In addition to the two Queen size beds in the 2 bedrooms with 2 baths, the front sofa turns into a king size bed and there was still enough room for an air mattress that the owner provided for our extra person.

Since i am a chemically sensitive person, he took care that the cleaning help did not use harsh detergents, air fresheners etc. and thoughtfully left a de-humidifier for us.

Just across the street, in this up and coming neighborhood, there was an elementary school and large soccer, basketball field, so our three grandchildren could get their Ya Ya's out or watch the neighbors play after a day of museum going. Our kids came with their car and the owner provided a sticker so that they could park on the street in front of the building.

Allen, apartment owner, was really nice. He even gave us a ride downtown once and transferred our suitcases to another smaller apartment he owns in Adams Morgan after our family left, so we could go explore without missing any time.

Beautiful accomodations, convenient to metro and convention center

Myself and two colleagues stayed at this apartment while attending a professional meeting at the convention center. We found the owner very helpful to address questions about parking and proximity to the metro prior to our trip. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and in an area where we felt safe. It was a quick 6-7 block walk to the convention center, where there is also a metro stop. One evening we ate at Beau Thai, a Thai restaurant which is located just two blocks from the apartment. We also visited a grocery store and several other restaurants, located 5 blocks away. Our only complaint is that the upstairs unit is also a vacation rental and three of the five nights we stayed, a family with small children was staying above us and they were quite loud in the mornings, but I think that's just part of city living. I would highly recommend this apartment for professionals as well as vacationing families.
