My wife and I stayed here with our 3 kids (9, 6 and 2) and her father for a week in mid April. The listing was accurate, and we were very satisfied with the accommodations. Booking was simple and straightforward. Upon arrival, everything was just as expected - clean linens, clean house, etc. The owner answered a couple of e-mails very promptly during our stay to answer questions, and in fact stopped by one day to get the vacuum cleaner out of a locked area so we could clean up thoroughly after ourselves. The house is across the street from a middle school, and the neighborhood seemed quite safe. The nearby market (2.5 blocks - about a 3 minute walk) was sufficient for odds and ends and you could survive on this store alone if needed, but we did make a trip to Whole Foods (1440 P Street NW) upon arrival to shop for the week. There was also a nice bagel shop on the corner of 3rd and Massachusetts where we bought a dozen bagels for the week. We also found that Mr. Henry's (601 Pennsylvania avenue SE - just under a mile walk - easy and flat) had a "kids night" upstairs every Tuesday from 5:30-8pm that was wonderful. Movie playing for the kids, very accepting staff, and good food at a good price. Was a nice break from cooking dinner that evening! The Metro is an easy 3.5 block walk away at Union Station, and this was the way we got around all week.
The only down side was the stairs. This is a 3 level unit with the kitchen, dining room and a 1/2 bath on the first floor, a bedroom and living room on the 2nd floor and 2 bedrooms and a full bath on the 3rd floor. Be ready for some exercise and some careful bathroom planning so you're not running up and down the stairs all day - especially if you've got the 2nd floor bedroom! On the other hand, the bedrooms are well spread out, and some people can stay awake late and not disturb others - especially great for families!
If we're going to DC again, and want to be in town, we will definitely consider staying here again, and would recommend it.
It is not very often that you come about a description of a property and it amenities that are actually true, however everything that was stated here was accurate and because of that my family had an amazing time. This location afforded us the chance to see DC from a locals perspective and yet we were extremely close to all the attractions that DC has to offer. And the money we saved by utilizing this property afforded us the opportunity to enjoy more of DC that we would have even hoped for. Amazing location, no need need to rent a car, steps to Station and steps to amazing local spots. A definite place for families, groups and who ever wants to see DC and save money doing it.
The location for this property is great, with close proximity to Union Station, grocery store and restaurants. Nice, safe neighborhood in historic Capitol Hill. However, I have to agree with previous reviews, in that the cleanliness was certainly below par. The draperies were ripped and the purple and gold swag in the Master Bedroom had a highly visible layer of dust. The patio furniture out back looked like it had not been cleaned in a while. The beds were comfortable, BUT my son had quite a few bug bites on his ankle and calf of both legs, presumably from bed bugs. We notified the owners and moved him to the bedroom on the third floor. No more bites after he moved rooms. The owners assured us that mattress protectors were on all beds, but that was not the case. Additionally, the owners do not provide wash cloths and this is not disclosed, so you must bring your own. Just another note, when you flush the toilet on the first floor there is NO water in the 3rd floor shower until the plumbing system has time to recover.
Our family of 6, with kids ages 9-17, stayed for 5 nights. The house was clean and air-conditioned when we arrived, perfect for the humid Washington DC summer. We walked and used a 7 day metro pass to go everywhere including Arlington, Georgetown (using the free Georgetown shuttle) and the National Shrine. The proximity to Union Station was ideal. The unit's 3 stories actually worked well for us, giving us plenty of space to spread out when we needed it. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had enough supplies to make dinner out of fresh ingredients bought at nearby Eastern Market. Owners easy to work with, returned deposit promptly after our stay. Would return to this unit in a heartbeat.
My family (husband, kids, mother-in-law) stayed here for 6 days. From the moment we walked in, we were pleased with the style and cleanliness of the house. It was spacious, private, and very comfortable. The neighborhood is also wonderful. It is walking distance from Union Square Station, which allowed us to get around the city without any difficulty. On the first night, there was a problem with the heating system. When I notified the homeowners of the problem, they had a contractor at the house within less than an hour. By the time my family had come back from our excursions for the day, the heat was fixed. They were professional, and they really care for their property and their renters. When I plan another trip to Washington D. C. I'm not even going to bother looking for a hotel. I'm going right back to this house.
The only thing I'd do differently is that I would leave my car at home. We drove to DC and kept the car parked at the Union Square Station. It was impossible to find on-the-street parking near the house. In total, we spent somewhere between $150-170 to park in the lot, but that's a whole lot better than parking tickets or towing. With the house being so close to Union Station, next time I visit, I would take Amtrak there. Getting around on the DC Metro is easy, inexpensive, and convenient. Depending on where you're going, taxis might be cheaper than the Metro.
We had a multigenerational family of 7, staying here doing a "Capitol tour". Accommodations were fine and location was great. Would recommend/stay again when we travel to the DC area.
