Wonderful and practical place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and I stayed at this basement apartment over spring break. Jim and Patrick were wonderful hosts, leaving us with helpful hints and tips about the area. The apartment is clean, crisp, and practical, and is easy walking distance to 2 grocery stores and multiple restaurants. The kitchen was well outfitted, as we made breakfast in the morning and ate out for lunch and dinner. When our destinations were too far to walk, we used the DC Circulator or a rideshare. All in all, we will gladly stay there again!

Nice one bedroom apt. in wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at the Convention Center Apartment. The apartment is in a nice neighborhood and close to shopping and restaurants. Also it is well located to public transportation and the Mall/Museums. The apartment is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Our only suggestion is to get a larger television. We would stay there again.

Convention Center convenience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this very nice apartment while I was attending a conference right down the street at the Convention Center. We were there in August, so it was hot and humid out, while we were cool and comfortable in the apartment! Didn't even need the AC.

The apartment is conveniently located just minutes away from the Mt. Vernon Metro stop, and all of the other public transportation options. Our hosts were super helpful, pointing out the closest markets, good restaurants, and the ease of getting to Nationals Park for a baseball game, which was great fun!

We would certainly stay here again.

Five Star Basement Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this basement apartment for a week in October. It sits on a residential street in the Shaw district, a few blocks from the convention center and about a mile from the National Mall. The apartment itself has one bedroom, a bathroom with a shower and stacked washer and dryer (a great convenience), a full kitchen and a living room with a sofa. There is plenty of space; everything has a neat and clean appearance.

This apartment worked very well for my wife and me. We recommend it highly.

excellent place

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to DC and this place was superbly located, you could literally walk everywhere! The dwelling is beautiful, neat, clean and appealing. The owners are fabulous individuals and very accommodating. Everyone in our family was impressed and i would absolutely stay here again and encourage anyone visiting DC to take advantage of this gem. Thank you Jim & Patrick for a great place to stay :)
