Overall a nice place to stay

  • 3 of 5

Great location, I felt very safe and the location was central to walk to grocery and restaurants. I wish the owners would stay the night in the apartment so they could see the items that needed to be made a tab better. 1) We had three towels and one washcloth for four adults. I had been told to text if we needed anything, but never got a response. I just washed after each morning shower and each evening shower. they provided laundry soap but it would have been cheaper if we could have had a few more towels. 2) some rooms needed a bit more cleaning. The kitchen was spotless but the bathroom/washer/dryer area smelled of urine. I've stayed in enough student dorms and church camps to know that one can't be a princess!

The night before we were to leave, the upstairs washer overflowed and water entered our bathroom. We called them and they responded quickly and even credited that nights stay since it happened after 11:30am. We did not ask for that so it was very much appreciated.

Overall, I would stay in the apartment again.

Owner's Response: As owners, we work hard to quickly address any issues for our guests. We actually weren't aware that these guests did not have enough towels. If I had known, we would have gone out in the middle of the night to purchase them if necessary. We have done as much before to ensure that our guests are in no way inconvenienced. We did have a leak due to the hose from the upstairs washing machine coming loose. It came loose once before these guests arrived and unfortunately again during their stay. That bath closet they referenced is directly underneath the upstairs washer. I suspect the leak is what caused the odor. This issue has now been rectified.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay. The owner shared great information about the neighborhood to eliminate any guessing about good restaurants or where things were located. It was conveniently located to the convention center and other attractions. In the past we would stay outside of the city and take the metro in; however this stay changed our mind. It was much more convenient to stay in the city . We always felt safe and the neighbors we met were very friendly.

GREAT Location!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the apartment in late March. The location is great and definitely as advertised by the owners. It is a walk from the National Mall, but a couple of times we just walked the distance rather than walking to the train station and then from the train station to the apartment, just easier to walk home. Close to Whole Foods and restaurants near there. Close to bus, circulator bus and metro train. We used Uber several times and never waited more than about 4 minutes (so they are in the area). As for the apartment, it is well appointed. There were 3 of us and the right size for that. There is only one bathroom so consider this, I had kind of missed that fact. We have rented a number of VRBO's around the United States and Hawaii. I just didn't feel it was well set up for cooking but we did ok. No storage containers and garbage bags were not provided. No kitchen towels that we could really identify. Generally, could be a little cleaner when you look in the corners. The bathroom needs help, even my husband agreed with this. It is very small with a large jazucci tub with bad tile on the front. Washer and dryer worked well. Bed was comfortable. Our son (teenager) used the airbed rather than the hideabed (sofa). The living room is a very separate room so turning it into a bedroom worked well for him. Noisy from upstairs in the morning and evening but not too bothersome (except what seemed to be the dishwasher or washing machine at about 10:30pm)

Great "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this apartment. There were 4 in our group: 2 adults and 2 children ages 10 and 11. The apartment was spacious and clean and was in a safe area. The kitchen had everything we need to fix breakfast and dinner each day, and the owner left us directions to a couple of small grocery stores nearby. There were plenty of linens, and the kids said the mattress topper on the sleeper sofa was very comfortable. Having a washer/dryer there was great for mid-week washing. The location was excellent: short walk to a Metro, a DC Circulator stop, and a moderate walk downtown. In addition to the usual tourist places, we also went to the International Spy Museum. It was fun for the kids but even more interesting to the adults! It was within walking distance and was also on the way to the Smithsonians. I would definitely be willing to stay in this apartment again.

Wahington DC stay

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was a great find. It was clean and tidy, but small for our group of 6. The metro, restaurants and groceries nearby were very convenient. Overall a great stay for a great price!

Great experience - couldn't have been happier

  • 5 of 5

Owner interaction - I didn't meet him/her but didn't need to as the deadbolt had a pass code and everything was ready when we arrived. Only had one question regarding parking when arrived and it was answered promptly.

Location - it is located almost right in the middle of everything. It is about a ten to twelve minute walk to the convention center metro. The family and I mostly caught Uber or Lyft from the house in the mornings. You can get to all the tourist activities in a short amount of time. The owners included free parking which made all the difference in the world. We were able to find a spot within vowing distance from the apartment. However, you really should park the car and use public transportation because parking anywhere in DC is a nightmare. Always felt safe at the location. From what I saw, the rental is in a typical DC neighborhood where one block is super nice and the next is not so nice and viceversa.

Rental - would say that it is perfect for a family with two to three kids. Four adults or more might be a little tight. The rental had everything that you needed for your stay as a guest. I loved the small backyard area with a grill. I would have enjoyed using the area in the summertime. I was fine with the sheets and towels, but if you were a high maintenance individual, you may want to consider bringing your own.

Great experience and I would stay at the location again and that is the most important recommendation
