  • Beautifully restored home-close to DC sites
    4 of 5

    This home was exactly as it appears in the photos and is very clean, well-maintained, and stocked with all the little things that make it easy to just show up with your clothes and be instantly comfortable. I've come to really appreciate homes that are stocked with garbage bags, cleaning supplies, paper towels, a few condiments to make cooking easier, and even shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. They had plenty of electrical outlets to make phone, watch, computer charging easy. Clearly the owners give a lot of thought about the comfort of their guests. For a 4 BR and 2 1/2 bath, it was also very well priced. As lovely and comfortable as the house was, I would be remiss if I didn't review the neighborhood. The owners fully disclosed that this is an up and coming neighborhood however, what I had in my mind that meant and what we actually saw, were two different things. First off- neither myself or anyone in my family were afraid- however we were on several occasions uncomfortable. Part of the reason we selected this home was it's convenience to the Metro station. The walk to and from the metro takes you through the main street in Anacostia. There are lovely new apartment complexes and homes that are being restored. There are also homes that are abandoned (the one next door has broken window glass lying in the grass and the windows boarded up) and in very poor states of repair. There is also a lot of garbage in the streets. As we walked to and from the Metro, my daughters were heckled mildly and comments were made about them on the bus. We also met very nice people who helped us with directions, made polite conversation, and were very nice to speak with. On one morning on our way into the city, a man was lying in the middle of the street clearly impaired in some way. Locals said he's like that every day... So I would agree with the owners, Anacostia is certainly starting to make the turn around the corner, but it's got a long way to go. As we did not rent a car, totally were depended on public transportation. We would have never ridden the metro or bus after dark. We would have preferred to shop at local markets and local resturants but those really don't exist in Anacostia so you need to Uber or Lyft to get around. I would not recommend families with kids middle school age or less but fine for older teens. The house is up a slight hill which seems way steeper than it really is when you've walked all day in DC!

    Spent a few days looking at the DC sights. Joseph and the whole team were exceptional in accomodating our stay. Easy check-in/check-out, Super in every way. About a mile to 2 metro stops
