About Jarek Mika

We are family owned and operated. From the left meet Kate, Jarek (sister and brother) and our mom Dana.

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean, conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

Nice , Clean , Well Designed and Highly Fucntional - Very pleased we stayed - Much better than Hotel

  • 5 of 5

Owners have done a very nice job in designing the Apartment. Everything was great. Very close to great restaurants, perfect location for grocery shopping at Giant. Parking was easy and the area was very safe and friendly. Great access to the Metro Station for Columbia Heights. This really is a perfect location and a good value for a group of 3 to 6. 20 minutes to the National Mall on the Metro. Easy traffic while driving when comparing to other cities. The owners have done a very nice job with this property and our stay was a great stay.

Thank You guys ..

An excellent DC property for a family or group

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this location was wonderful! The location was convenient and easily accessible (2 blocks from the Metro and all of the stores on 14th street). The unit is kept in immaculate condition with everything you need for your stay. Throughout the process, from initial inquiry to after the stay, the owners were immediately responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this location for families and groups!

Very Nice Place to Stay in Washington D.C

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, very nice place that was easy to get to and very close to the Metro. Excellent communication by the owner. Would definitely go back the next time we are in the area.

Mattresses on the beds could have been a little better and would like to have soap and shampoo in the showers as a nice added amenity.

DC tourist

  • 3 of 5

Location is convenient for metro, grocery stores and quaint restaurants. Townhouse is clean, fairly comfortable but has poor lighting in kitchen and only few ways to hang towels in bathrooms. Not appropriate for individuals with walking disabilities because of lots of stairs.

Owner's Response: Dear Judy - thank you for your review. We are sorry that you found the unit not accessible as the unit has a master bedroom suite on the main living level (something most people with walking disabilities found very helpful) . As with most DC row houses, there are stairs to enter the building. We do not hide that fact in our description and even note that the unit is not wheelchair accessible. We are sorry that you expected otherwise and would encourage you and anyone else with special needs to inquire about the arrangements prior to booking our unit as we are always very happy to make recommendations for guests with special needs.

We could not have had a better experience. The property was beautiful and well maintained. Very close to the metro, stores, and restaurants. Just a delightful way to experience D.C. and the surrounding area!

Spring Break, DC Style!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in a Jarek and Kate property and once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is clean and well maintained. Since there is a unit above this one, noise can be a factor, but it didn't really bother us too much. If you are sensitive to noise though, you may want to take that into consideration. The proximity to the metro, stores, and restaurants can't be beat. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
