AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
The unit was awesome. The other reviews are correct about being able to hear noise from the upper apartment but it's not that bad & we took earplugs. It's in a very convenient spot. The only drawback I had was is I am a fairly tall person & the ceilings are low. We had an issue with the toilet while we were there & we were able to get it taken care of very quickly. I would recommend this unit & would stay here again.

FRIENDS VISITING THE CAPITAL

  • 2 of 5
I was disappointed in the property. It was very convenient for us and a nice walk to Trivolia Square but the actual apartment was not what I would expect. In other places I have stayed, there is usually a welcome binder with information on stores, close by eateries, and much more. We found one sheet that told us about the lock and internet pass code. There was also a map of the metro system but it would have been nice to have a brochure to be able to take with us. Also it would have been nice to know that the grocery charged for bags if you didn't bring your own and that there was a shopping cart in the kitchen to use. WIth no instructions available, we had issues with all the tv's as we did not know how to turn on the tv - given there were two remotes and there was no listing of what the local stations were. No directions on how to regulate the heat as being a lower unit, it was chilly at night. The beds had a sheet on the mattress but no sheet above and between you and the comforter on the bed. Pillows were big but very hard and high. Our friends didn't even use theirs. In the bathroom, the toilet paper holder was broken and every time you pulled the paper, the end of the holder fell off and the roll went rolling across the floor. Ended up just taking the roll off and setting it beside the toilet. There were no extra towels, no extra blankets. As we attempted to go out to the patio, we had to move bags of dirt at the top of the stairs in order to get out and the patio was rather junky with old grills and other stuff sitting around. Was not happy either to see bug spray kept under the kitchen sink. You do hear the people upstairs so if you are light sleeper this is not for you. I rate it fair as it was convenient for us and we like the area but the unit did not give us a warm welcome or make us feel comfortable, it was a place to sleep was all.

GREAT LOCATION AND EASY RENTING

  • 3 of 5
Working with Lois is a dream. She was quick to answer any emails and return our deposit quickly upon our return. The location of the apartment is ideal. It is a 3 block walk to the Metro and two blocks to stores and restaurants. The apartment itself is adequate, but not dazzling. The kitchen is not well-appointed and we had to purchase measuring cups to make coffee. But, the Cuisinart coffee maker was terrific. I wouldn't plan on doing major cooking in the apartment, but with all the good restaurants in DC, you won't need to. The back yard was a peaceful haven to spend a little time in reading. Being in the basement, I expected to hear the upstairs neighbors and I was not disappointed. They were not being loud or rowdy, but every footfall and conversation could be heard. Bring your earplugs if you sleep in the back bedroom. Also, the tile floors were chilly (but so was the weather) so bring your slippers, too. It took a while to figure out, but the faucets in the bathroom are reversed. Once you know that, it's not a problem. Also, there is only one hook in the bathroom. We had damp towels hanging off door knobs around the apartment. There is lots of wasted room in the hallway that could hold towels. Also, there is no linen closet and the towels were stacked up on the radiator cover. There are no handrails on either set of stairs (front and back door). While the apartment may be 2000 sq. ft., a lot of it is made up of three hallways. These are some of the reasons this apartment with the wonderful location only received three stars.

Owner's Response: While I try my best as property manager to make the home as comfortable as possible, I realize at times I must make adjustments. Therefore I have taken these comments and completed the following:
1. Reconfigured the Hallway Closet into a Linen closet by adding shelves and hooks to provide additional storage for the towels.
2. I now provide earplugs if/when necessary, upon request.
3. Installed additional carpet in the upper level to help mute the sound.
4. Purchased new kitchen items to replace the ones that were missing.
I truly appreciate such suggestions.

FUN TRIP TO DC

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 4 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!
