Fun trip to dc

As advertised, this property is close to target, grocery store, Starbucks and metro. We visited for 6 days and had our 3 kids with us all under the age of 7. We used our stroller everyday to the metro and baby bjorned our baby and the walk to the metro was completely doable. Our only glitch was a power outage one night which was due to some city work being completed. The apartment caretaker quickly answered out inquiring call and let us know that it was being worked on. So, we enjoyed a dinner out that night :) The apartment is well furnished with typical needs and having the washer/dryer was huge given our 3 rambunctious kids. Always felt safe and secure. Thanks for a great family trip to DC!

Great value in a great neighborhood

I shared this apartment with two of my friends on a 5-day visit to DC this February. The apartment is as described, though 'dazzling' might be a bit of an exaggeration. The place was clean and the kitchen well stocked in terms of appliances, utensils, and dishware. Much of the contents looked relatively new. The beds were very comfortable and there was a flat screen TV in both bedrooms as well as in the living room. When we arrived, the instructions told us to retrieve the keys from a lock box which we couldn't locate. It turned out that the lock box was a key safe at the bottom of the mailbox, hidden by some papers. We called the number given to us and the caretaker arrived within 5 minutes. He's an extremely charming person. Lois is lucky to have found him.
The neighborhood is up and coming, with the Metro a 5 minute walk away, a Giant Supermarket a 3 minute walk away, and some great pubs/restaurants within a couple of blocks. The only reason this gets 4-stars, is because there is no parking provided and paying $15 for a street parking permit doesn't guarantee that finding a parking spot will be easy. Finding one, especially in the evening, can require some patience. Also, the upstairs neighbors had a loud party on Saturday night that kept my two friends up. I, on the other hand, heard nothing.
All three of us agreed that we would definitely rent the place again.

Convenient location, comfortable unit

I recently stayed in Lois's apartment for 4 days with 4 of my girlfriends. We absolutely loved the unit, and we felt very safe at this location. Lois made the booking process very easy, and she was quick to answer any questions we had! Further, the apartment had everything we needed; from bathroom towels to extra blankets and an inflatable mattress. Anything else we needed was easily obtainable, as there is a LARGE shopping area with a Target, Walgreens, and a very nice grocery store all just a block or two away. The metro is also very accessible, as well as bicycles for rent. I also cannot emphasize enough how safe the area felt. Being five girls in an area we were unfamiliar with was something that concerned us. However, the neighborhood is lovely, and the locals were so nice and helpful! Any information you need about the unit, Lois has provided. There are no hidden surprises. In some of the comments, I read about noise from up above. Because this is a lower level unit, of course there is a little bit of noise. However, it is not overbearing in my opinion. Overall, I can't say enough about this excellent location! Beautiful apartment, wonderful location, amazing renter. DC is great too, so enjoy!

Property was perfect for our vacation!

Our family vacationed in Washington DC and chose to stay at this little hidden beauty. We were very satisfied with the apartment. Columbia Heights is a great little neighborhood if you are interested in seeing a bit of the eclectic culture away from the regular DC tourist scene. There is a big grocery store right around the corner where we bought groceries for the week. There is also a nice shopping center that includes Target and a sporting goods store. They have a cute little farmers market on Saturdays and lots of children playing in the fountain. I don't understand why anyone would give this property less than 5 stars. All of the appliances worked perfect-no electricity issues. The property owner and manager were very attentive to us. The Columbia Heights Metro station is very close-we stayed a week and relied on public transportation the entire time. It was very relaxing and we did not have any noise issues as with other reviews. It was a week of record breaking temperatures in DC while we were there, but we were very comfortable with the air conditioning. Thank you again for everything-we will definitely return to this property when we vacation in DC again!!

Fun neighborhood -

We had a wonderful time exploring the neighborhood and visiting several of the restaurants nearby. Everyone we met was friendly and made our stay enjoyable. The location is great for everything - restaurants, groceries, metro. The only issue is parking. We did get a permit, but received a ticket in the time it took to receive it.

The apartment is on the "garden level" so it's a bit dark, which is expected. The layout is a little odd, but it works just fine. Some cleaning supplies would be a great help, and a dust buster would be awesome. While we would certainly consider staying here again due to the location, the upstairs tenants are very loud. There was a small child running back and forth for hours starting very early in the morning and the vacuum cleaner starts up early too. We were there to look at colleges and to see the city, so we were up, but be aware if you plan on sleeping in.

Overall a great experience, and we would recc this apartment to our friends, with the aforementioned warnings.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the feedback. I continue to explain to my guest in the Key Instructions and in multiple e-mail messages to the Guest to please reach out to my staff and myself, while at the property, not upon the departure of the property. Everyone wins if I/we are notified while the Guests are in town. When excess noise is experienced, the guest know that I am just a phone call/e-mail away and so is my staff. In my efforts to provide customer service I pay a maintenance man/runner to assist me in ensuring our guests stay is as comfortable as possible. While we are not perfect, we do try our best. Everyone who stays in anyone of my units receives written notification regarding the possibility of contract cancellation if rules are violated including the rule prohibiting excess noise. Because I do not live in the building while guest are staying in the building it is hard for me to know about any potential issues unless the Guest contact me. While we would like to continue to welcome children, we could prohibit children or we could simply ask our guest to have the children consider that this is an apt. home. So, for future guests, I would continue to ask my valued guests to reach out to us when such issues occur so that we may immediately address them. I feel this service is a great one and that guest should enjoy this free service.
