My husband and I had spent a week in New York and arrived by train to this wonderful apartment and stayed for 8 nights. We were greeted by our host, who gave us all the information we needed on supermarkets and how to get around Washington, including getting a Smartrip card which was well worth it. It was easy to get around by metro (the nearest station is 5 minutes away) or the circulator bus and we could use the card on both. Most of the attractions were within walking distance for us so we covered a lot of ground on foot.
We also visited Georgetown and Alexandria, both of which are beautiful and well worth a visit if you have the time.
The apartment was immaculate, very clean, the bed was so comfortable, the linens beautiful and the apartment as a whole had everything we needed. The listing was accurate and the apartment was even better than the photographs portrayed. It was very quiet at night and felt a very safe area so there were no problems coming home later in the evening.
There were many restaurants within walking distance and our favourite was the Casa Luca 1099 New York Ave NW - about 10 minutes walk away. The service and food were excellent.
Our host was really helpful during our stay and even gave us details on how to get to Dulles Airport on our return, writing out instructions and the times of the buses to get there and how long to allow for the journey. We got to the airport in good time for our flight
We would definitely stay in the apartment again if we return to Washington, which was a lovely City clean and friendly and very relaxed.
Many thanks again to our hosts, you have a beautiful home.
Rosemary and Graham
