Loved our stay in the 1 BR apt!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the PERFECT place for our little family of 3 during our week-long vacation in D.C.! Parents in the bedroom, kid on the pull-out sofa, very comfortably. King bed was very comfortable, great air conditioning, full kitchen and laundry in the unit were very convenient, and the swimming pool and hot tub were SO nice to have! Great location -- so easy to get to the Metro, which we used all week with a week-long short-run pass. No problems in any regard, and the property was exactly as advertised! We took the Metro to Clarendon to shop (Trader Joe's especially -- awesome!) and dine (loved Circa-Clarendon - ate there twice!), and walked home from there at night very comfortably, too. We will recommend this place to anyone who's going to D.C. -- you'd be CRAZY to stay anywhere in D.C. proper for way more $!

STAY HERE !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I LOVED this place and would stay again because I didn’t want to leave !

A wonderful, attractive, clean, quiet, modern, like new apartment. A short 2 block walk to the Virginia Square Metro . It was so nice to relax in a comfortable living room, after a tiring day of touristing, as opposed to the limited space of a hotel room. This location is totally assessable to everything you want to see in DC. All was lovely. VERY comfortable, large bed. In room washer and dryer lets you travel lighter. The 24 hour front desk staff were attentive and helpful. Great, walkable, SAFE neighborhood. Go ahead…. stay here. Its great !!

Other tips for this neighborhood : Many more restaurant choices near the Clarendon metro stop. Maybe a 15 min walk or just one metro stop away. Uber service is outstanding in Virginia, taking only minutes to arrive every time. No problem at all getting an Uber ride from Dulles airport at almost midnight. Uber is Dulles approved and on standby at Dulles.

A Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful apartment. A short 2 block walk to the Metro and full of all the comforts of home (including an amazing bed!), it was a perfect place to stay during our DC vacation.

The owners/management company were attentive and helpful. Once we got our bearings and figured out how to get around on the Metro, we felt like locals!

I wish every place we vacation was as easy, beautiful and comfortable as this one. Highly recommended rental.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (2 kids) and stayed for three weeks. The location is perfect, just 2 blocks to the Metro. Great, walkable neighborhood. Close to shopping and restaurants. The apartment was tastefully furnished and the Zen team as well as the front desk staff were extremely nice and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this apartment and stay again.

Wonderful place to stay, fabulous value

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean with a great safe location! The staff could not have been more helpful, the battery on my rental car died the day I left and the staff graciously jumped it for me! The Virginia Square metro is a short easy walk - less than 5 minutes. Easy check in and check out, convenient on site parking garage (reasonable at $10 per night), I cannot say enough about this place. I have stayed in 12 VRBO rentals through the years and this was the quietest I have ever rented. I would definitely recommend!
