Owner/Manager purchased this house in 1989
Great in-town revitalization area with all of the city convenience including Mall DC USA, a Mega mall just right on the corner from the house
Spacious house with BBQ Deck and each bedroom is a suite. Wifi internet and Computer terminal provided for home away from home convenience.
we stayed at this property for two weeks, seeing the sights in Washington with our family of four (two adults, two teenagers) and my father-in-law. The apartment fit us perfectly in terms of bedrooms and bathrooms, and we used the kitchen to cook most of our meals. Cookware was basic, but everything worked, and the nearby Giant was extremely convenient and met all our needs (there are also plenty of local restaurants). We had no problem with the Pho restaurant downstairs - no noise or odors - and they were particularly considerate about the parking space, as well (the included free parking was a big plus). There is a good deal of street noise in the bedroom closest to the street, but the A/C fans covered some of it. Linens were basic but adequate. The location was extremely convenient to the Metro system, which we used for virtually all travel around the city. The listing was 100% accurate in terms of photos, layout, and other details; I will say (in agreement with a previous review) that some attention to minor maintenance (light bulbs, paint, doors, etc.) would be warranted. The site manager did let us know via phone how to enter the property upon arrival, and we did not have (or require) any additional contact during our stay. All in all, I would recommend this property as a good base to see Washington.
The condo was everything and more than was stated. We took our two grandsons to Washington for their 8th grade graduation trip and this was an excellent place to stay. It was clean, very large, well maintained. In the close vicinity were every kind of restaurant you could want, metro, target, grocery store. Yes, it is above a Vietnamese restaurant with a most friendly proprietor (welcomed us with iced coffees). I found the aroma great but if you don't, buy an air-wick; its very slight. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends and family.
The location & layout of this unit is great. Easy to access, close to Metro, solid area. Within blocks of many trendy places (on 12th Street NW). Our son has been a student in DC so we knew the area pretty well when we reserved it. Negatives - plan to buy a lot of air freshener as the restaurant below does have pungent odors - especially in the morning and afternoon. The rear of the shopping mall faces the rear of this unit and the noise from their A/C systems is quite loud - starting by 6 a.m. every day. Because of that noise you need to run the A/C on warm days & keep the patio door closed. The A/C in our unit did not work. I notified the mgr on Friday & he said they'd get somebody to look at it. As of Tuesday (when we left) I had never heard from anyone. The sad part is that with about $2000 to paint the doors and walls, plus repair the A/C & seal vent leaks from the restaurant this would be a fantastic place. As it is right now I would probably not go back.
This 2-bedroom, 2-and-a-half-bath apartment was clean, spacious, well-equipped and well-located.
Our family enjoyed this apartment for a week in April. Check-in, check-out and payment were easy. We parked the car in the gated parking spot right behind the apartment. Bus and metro were very close, as were grocery and general stores, and several restaurants. We made use of the washer and dryer, with laundry detergent provided. Beds are comfortable, and the wifi, and the 3 large TVs with cable worked well.
As others have noted, there is a bit of street noise, and occasional kitchen smells from the Vietnamese restaurant located right below the apartment. Also, the HVAC is quite noisy.
The one issue I should mention is that it rained off and on with no ill-effects, except once during one particularly heavy downpour towards the end of our stay, the ceiling sprang a couple of leaks right above the dining table. We used a couple of bowls from the kitchen to contain the drips. I did inform the property manager who said it would be taken care of.
With the leaky roof repaired, I'd recommend this apartment without hesitation.
The condo location was everything it was advertised to be. Not only a block walk to the Metro, dozens of restaurants, Target and groceries, but the Mall is only 4 metro stops away. 20 minutes door to door for almost everything on the Mall. After a long day of museum shuffling, it was a quick trip back to a great selection of restaurants (Pho 14 and China Town take out were among the favorites) or the functional kitchen to cook in.
The neighborhood has a lot of foot traffic and the 4 restaurants on the block draw well so expect a fair amount of city noise. The sound proofing worked well everywhere except the front bedroom overlooking the street, and a fan took care of that.
Overall a great base to visit DC.
This rental unit was clean and as advertised. It is close to the Metro, shopping, and a large grocery store. The manager allowed us early arrival which was appreciated. However, the cleaning lady was not finished until one hour past normal arrival time, so we really could not take occupancy until then. I was very disappointed the cleaning lady removed condiments from the pantry when she left. I found it rude she took sugar, butter, and condiment packages from Subway. There is a Pho restaurant directly below the unit, and the smell from the restaurant was unpleasant our entire stay. We also had to ask the restaurant manager twice to turn down the music after 9:00 pm. which was unacceptable. The window coverings do not cover the sliding door in the rear completely. We had to hang a sheet for privacy.
