Charming Property, Close to the Action!

We just got back from our trip to DC and I am so happy that we rented this apartment. The space is perfect for 2 adults. And as an added bonus there are 2 bicycles (no helmets) and locks that you can use to tool around the city.
Bathroom- plenty of big soft towels, heater and fan, Kirkland soap and shampoo products. There isn't much counter space but there is a large medicine cabinet and you can clear some towels on the shelves and put your stuff there.
Bedroom- closet space and a dresser, sheets are great and plenty of pillows,bed is comfy, there is a large TV as well
Kitchen- fully equipped with plates and cups, etc, there is a dishwasher and microwave and BONUS a washer and dryer! Since it rained we needed to do laundry and this was perfect. Soap and detergent in the cupboard. There is a great breakfast bar and super relaxing bar stools to hang out in.
Living Room- Big comfy leather sofa that 2 adults can easily sprawl on. We moved the coffee table and put the ottoman there so we could stretch out. There is another large tv in there as well. We loved the electric fireplace and turned it on every night!
There are a few stairs to this basement apt so if that is something you cant handle then be advised, also there is no working porch light so it is really dark when you get home late. Bring a flashlight so you can see the lock.
The traffic on the street is pretty loud and lasts til 11pm. Anyone in the apt next door coming or going you will hear clear as day. And while the owner lives upstairs in the main house, you can hear furniture moving around, you can hear the dogs nails clicking across the floor and occasional barking, and you can hear when their water is in use. It's all muffled but if you are a light sleeper, then bring earplugs.
This price is excellent! Most hotels are starting at $250 and are in bad locations
This location is super excellent
The neighborhood is absolutely beautiful and safe to walk around in, even late at night
2 Bikes available - what a great idea, use them, bring helmets
Walking distance to the Metro 10 min!
Or take the bus, its so easy and there are 2 stops right outside on the corner
Tons of restaurants all within 10min - so many choices!
The Eastern Market is right there so if you want to cook, get your goods there
Very Comfortable digs
If I come back to DC, I would stay here in a heart beat.
The owner is very nice and easily accessible if you have questions. Great experience overall! A++
Tourists without a Car
Owner's Response: We are DELIGHTED that you enjoyed our property and the bikes! Yikes, there is a porch light the bulb was out! So sorry didn't know! I replaced the bulb, no need for a flashlight now. Ill keep checking to make sure it works! Please come and see us again!
Warm regards from the HILL!
