Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This basement apartment is lovely. The furnishings are nice and homey. It is very clean. It is close to the Capital, in fact you can see it from the apartment. It is about 2 blocks from a bike share. The owner returned my emails promptly and answered all my questions. The only negative was that the apartment noise from above. It would awaken us in the middle of the night when the upstairs guests would get home. I highly recommend this apartment.

Can't wait to return! Comfort and convenience in Capitol Hill neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Andrea’s lovely apartment for just over a week in March. Having a home base while we toured the area was our preference over a hotel; being in the Capitol Hill neighborhood kept us close to where we wanted to spend our time; and Andrea’s apartment fit our three-person family perfectly. No detail was overlooked — from kitchen equipment and comfy linens to convenient laundry machines and ample storage. A few specific mentions:

- Andrea’s housekeeper, Rosario, was easy to reach to arrange getting and returning keys.

- The location was walking distance to sights, tons of restaurants, Eastern Market, and other shops

- We felt very safe in the apartment.

- Both my husband and I needed to work during our vacation, and the wifi was consistently strong.

- We’d driven to DC, and street parking near the apartment was easy to find (and despite the signed 2- or 3-hour parking limit during the daytime, no one seemed to move their cars and no one was ticketed).

- Uber took us where we needed to go in the evenings

- We felt like we came "home" at the end of our long, fun days!

I could write more, but let's leave it at this: We’d very much like to stay in this apartment when we return to DC next time!

Thanks so much for the great experience!

Perfect location. Comfortable, quiet, great neighborhood. Would definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly advertised as in the VRBO listing. Owner and housekeeper very accommodating to our needs. We love the location. Close to everything we wanted to do . We walked a lot, took Uber, and were able to visit all the places we wanted to visit. The neighborhood is safe, quiet, and quite lovely.

great location in historic section of town

  • 3 of 5

the Eastern Market district is beautiful. great cafes and the actual market is well stocked. We purchased groceries and used the kitchen most nights. the little P&C market around the corner has a wide variety of wine/beer. The basement unit is dark as can be expected but clean. Having a washer/dryer is wonderful. There really is NO patio as advertised. The owner was not in town but her housekeeper responded. There was a hiccup with the wifi but the owner resolved it immediately. I would recommend the district but the actual unit is a steep stairwell decent upon entering and has low ceilings and only 1 window with sunlight in the whole apartment. We walked to all the monuments and museums and used

the metro and busline for farther reaching locations. All the transportation in D.C. is perfect - so well organized and clean and safe!

Perfet Size in Perfect Area

  • 5 of 5

This is a great walk-out basement apartment 10 short blocks from the U.S Capitol and 15 minutes from Union Station. Before we went on vacation, we bought Metro passes, but this place is so well-located we never used them! Very bright and clean, just like the pictures show. The main bedroom is large and the bed itself quite comfy. It has it's own AC and thermostat, plus a dehumidifier, which is a huge plus in humid summers. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt safe regardless of the time of day or night. You do occasionally hear the family upstairs but its still quitter than most hotels I've been in. Plus, since its in a nice residential area, there a bazillion great restaurants that cater to the local clientele rather than being tourist traps. There are several small markets nearby as well. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner (except food of course) and the washer and dryer were lifesavers after a long day walking in the sun. My only caveat is that the bathroom is en suite with the bedroom, which might be a bit awkward if you're rooming with someone other than family, but that's a minor issue. Tons of storage in the closets and plenty of towels, linens and other supplies. This is one of those places that's so nice, you want to keep it clean and tidy as you found it!

Super Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time here immensely! Conveniently located to the Eastern Market and the metro there and also within walking distance of the Capitol, etc.

Stove looked brand new, marble counter tops, clean and comfortable. There was one small glitch with wifi, but Andrea was prompt in her attention to the issue.

This was great place for a couple!!
