Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Enise,

Thank you so much for the use of your home. We are honored to be your first guests - now friends! we loved staying here. The location immediately immersed us into 'DC life' and walking to and from your home was the perfect way to start and end our daily adventures. Your accommodations fit our needs perfectly, and we all slept comfortably each night. The furnishings are perfect, making us feel at home. I must say the garden was a nice surprise and my morning coffee. There was a great starts to each day. The metro was convenient and easy, not to mention the Eastern Market on the way.

Neighborhood restaurants were all very good. Acqua Alz, LePain, Sanphan, Tunicliff and Zest were favorites. We saw everything we wanted to see and your home was perfect for our family. We hope to see you again.

Comfortable accommodations in central DC

  • 4 of 5

Owner helpful, accommodations neat and cozy. In a really nice area and within easy walking distance of metro and DC attractions. As pictured, the courtyard is a bonus and available for those who wish to enjoy the balmy evenings.

Nice place with some drawbacks

  • 3 of 5

This is a spacious apartment located in a great neighborhood on Capitol Hill. The bedroom is located on the street side of the apartment while the living area faces a garden behind the house. The bathroom has a nice shower and the heated floor was nice since it was fairly cold in DC during this business trip. There are lots of places to eat within a short walking distance, two very comfy neighborhood taverns with a great selection of draft beer. As typical of the Capital Hill area it is a quiet neighborhood; one of the reasons I try to stay in this area.

As a business traveler there are a couple of things that cause me to give this place a lower rating. One had to do with the wifi connection. The only area in the apartment that provided a signal was an area along the wall of the bedroom nearest to the street. I was unable to obtain any signal on either my laptop or cell phone anywhere else in the apartment. I mentioned the wifi connection problem to the apartment owner and she seemed concerned but was unable to do anything about it.

There were lots of decorative items throughout the apartment - everywhere. Virtually every horizontal surface had some sort of vase, pot, nick knacks, etc. Some people like this, I could do with less. For example, I needed a place to work and the only place I could put my laptop was the coffee table in the living room. That was after I had to remove all of the decorative items that took up most of the space on the table.

Another issue concerned the ongoing construction outside in the patio. One of the reasons I selected this place was because of the beautiful patio area that I could enjoy after work. Unfortunately the owner was having her roof repaired and there were construction materials taking up much of the room in the garden and a large plastic sheet of covering the access and view of the garden. She did move the plastic sheet so I could view the garden from the living room but with the rainy weather I was unable to use the garden other than one evening. My point here is that I should have been advised in advance that the garden area would be essentially unusable due to construction. That would have likely caused me to look elsewhere when I was looking for a place to stay.

Overall this apartment would be just fine for travelers who had little need for a wifi connection and business travelers who do not need a work space.

West coast visitors

  • 5 of 5

Brought my sixteen year old daughter out to DC to see everything and we ended up walking 40 miles in 4 days, learned and leaned on the Metro (about 2.5 flat blocks from the front door). Owner was able to pick us up from Reagan on the way in which was fantastic, and we used the Metro to get back to the airport on the return. (If you want to lean on the metro, use Reagan. The other regional airports will require you use cabs or busses.)

We packed very light and used the apartment for home base while we visited the national mall, zoo, local and downtown restaurants. After long days and aching feet from site-seeing we found returning to Capitol Hill and slouching on the couch was the perfect way to get ready for the next day.

We did not cook during the week, so cannot comment about that, but the beds are firm and comfortable and the outdoor space would have been wonderful to use if we'd had warmer weather at night. We loved living in a quiet neighborhood and not at a hotel.

Thanks for everything, E.

Close to EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, felt like home! Beautifully kept space in sight of capital building. Easy access to metro, restaurants, eastern market, and much more. Wife is an avid runner and would run from property all the way to Lincoln memorial and back. Perfect for myself, wife and son to see everything we could in 3 days. The host is Very helpful and accomodating. Would definitely stay again.

Wonderful!

We loved our 10 days in D.C. Walked to most of the museums from the house. The house was clean and wonderful. Our host was warm and helpful. I would definitely recommend this rental!!!

Great place with a great host in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I wholeheartedly recommend this rental as Enise seems to take it upon herself to make sure you have everything you need for a fun easy vacation. We had a car that she secured a parking pass for and she gave us spot-on dinner recommendations. The accommodations are certainly very nice with a kitchen area and 2 queen beds - it was perfect for us and our two kids. It's very well kept up and has a nice relaxing patio area in the back. At times we felt like we didn't deserve such a nice place :-)
