Rather than stay in Hotel or large apartment building, guest can experience living in a residential neighborhood, charming historical townhouse. Fun to walk around the neighborhood, beautiful Embassies, restaurants, outdoor cafe's, Sunday farmers market. The apartment is walking distance to the Smithsoniam Mall and White house, or a few blocks to the metro. The streets in the neighborhood are quiet, tree lined and in Spring the cherry blossoms are magical. City living at it best, no car is necessary.

TRULY ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL STREETS OF DC, THE LOCATION IS THE BEST
" Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your great place. We had a spectacular time- saw everything and absolutely loved the neighborhood and location. Thank you again- Best,WhitneyB "
For the positives - great location on a lovely block. Spacious living area with good kitchen. Bed was comfortable with cotton sheets and comforters. A good value for the area and the space.
Now the negatives - front lobby and vestibule not well maintained. No outside light and the light in the vestibule was out so completely dark when entered building. Had to use our cell phone to find the key and get into the apartment. I also took a bad fall missing one of the steps (odd step down to get out) on the last night when the light was still out resulting in a badly sprained ankle and had to cut out trip short.
The bathroom is very, very small and barely functional. Couldn't get anything but luke warm water out of the shower no soap and no wash cloths available.
And no outlet in the bathroom.
The futon that acts as a sofa really isn't comfortable as a sofa and there was only one other chair.
There was a lack of attention to details as well for example no wine opener, no salt and pepper shakers and the cable TV didn't have access to the local channels. ok place you could do better.
We loved the neighbourhood which gave us a feeling of how the (fortunate) locals live. We were welcomed by the home owner and her bouncy dog. The unit was in a lovely period attached home with high ceilings and lots of character. The kitchen was modernized with very nice appliances. We were walking distance to Embassy Row and Nora's Restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious dinner.
We stayed for 10 days on a vacation in October. The location is perfect: a short walk to Dupont Circle and the Metro. You could even to the Capitol Mall, White House, museums, etc. if you like to walk. Plenty of restaurants, shops, charming historic neighborhood. The apartment is in a beautiful old brownstone row house and had all the basics, including fridge, dishwasher, microwave, TV, access to laundry, etc. There are two things that would make this property a really spectacular rental. First, it needs a deep cleaning. There was dirt/dust in the corners and on the baseboards, and the inside of the A/C (yes, it was hot a few days in October!) was just gross. The comforter on the bed smelled like cologne, and we suspected it hadn't been washed since the last rental. Second, there was no information whatsoever in the apartment. Understandable for a business renter, but we were on vacation and are used to seeing info about nearby businesses, suggestions for restaurants, directions to the nearest grocery, how to find the laundry (which is in the basement--take your key, one of us got locked out), where is the '"communal pool" listed in the ad, etc. Even the rental license posted on the wall was out of date. That said, AnaMarie was friendly when we saw her, and her dog is very sweet. On the whole, we had a great time. Would return if the place got a little more attention.
Amazing location! Awesome neighborhood! Close to so many restaurants, grocery stores, the post office & a fedex store, and most importantly, 2 great coffee houses!!! Walking distance to the Phillips Collection and the embassy row was a wonderful surprise. Felt very safe walking everywhere in the neighborhood, even at night. Walking distance to Metro station - easy for adults and older kids, but may want to have a stroller for little ones. Very quick Metro ride into the national mall & museums. Apartment is cute, historic, and has a very well stocked kitchen - was nice to not have to go out for breakfast, & have some dinners at home. The place is casual and comfortable - perfect for us and our 2 teenaged daughters. (Think very hip apartment you had - or wish you could have had in college.) We stayed in the bedroom while the girls shared the futon in the living room. We would definitely stay here again. If you are looking for a super-cush fancy 5 star experience, this place isn't for you. But if you want a place that is laid back, feels like a "home away from home" for your D.C. home base, where you don't have to worry about getting that "one thing out of place", and where your kids can spread out and be comfortable, this place is for you!
I stayed here for just over a month and enjoyed my stay. The apartment is comfortable and in an excellent location.
We are just finishing out two month stay here. Great location. Near 3 Metro lines and lots of bus lines. Easy walk to many things. Near lots of great restaurants. We loved Floriana's. Nearby Safeway. Very comfortable and safe. Enough room to have to grandchildren come and spend the weekend. Annamaria was very helpful and responsive. Washer/dryer downstairs was a big plus. No need for car at all. I would recommend to anyone and will be back.
Walking distance to white house, world bank, Smithsonian museaums and mall, around 20 min walk. Dupont Circle metro station is 5 blks, Qst entrance. Quiet residential street,charming to walk around neighborhood and enjoy the historical architecture, Embassies, al fresco cafe bars and restaurants.
