Echoing some of the previous reviews, the location is extremely close to the heart of D.C.! It only took 11 minutes in the earlier morning hours to get from the house to the White House. Most of the locations people come to view are pretty close to that area, so it shouldn't take any longer than 15 minutes to arrive to anything from the Lincoln Memorial to the Vietnam Memorial. When traffic kicks in, travel time is obviously slowed.
The area is like most inner city areas. It's not the best, but not the worst. The neighbor we met was extremely pleasant and very easy to talk to. He helped locate a local grocery store so we could utilize the kitchen. Riding motorcycles, as simple as this sounds, the one thing we really enjoyed was the fact that there was private off-street parking in the rear of the house. This kept our bikes out of street view and helped minimize potential theft. There were a few homeless people that walked down the alley, but nobody appeared to cause any problems.
There are 3 bedrooms upstairs, a computer room, and a full bathroom. The main floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen and a utility room near the back that was perfect for storing our gear. The basement has a 4th bedroom, another living room, 2nd full bathroom, laundry and a kitchenette. If you are familiar with an in-law suite, that is what you would think of.
We unfortunately didn't get to meet Tunde until we were leaving from our stay, but he seemed extremely friendly and upbeat. We also didn't experience any problems, so we had no need to bother him during our stay. I honestly can't think of a single thing to complain about. Trying to force myself to come up with at least one thing..... I don't know, maybe the toilet paper. That stuff was more rough than sandpaper. I guess it also depends on what you are in D.C. to do. There are 3 televisions in the house. One in the basement living room, one in the main living room, and one in the master bedroom. The one in the basement is a box tv instead of flat screen. We didn't have any need for it though, so none of that mattered to us.
We try to come to D.C. at least once a year. We will definitely check into renting the property again!!
Thank you Tunde!
