Might stay there again. Just a few things...

  • 3 of 5

Loved the decor, comfort & location. Less thrilled with the not so sympathetic, not so informative level of communications. Issues were questions on parking pass, lack of house key which rules threatened fine for losing, 2 days w/o wi-fi, hot water issues & latch on back door not working correctly. There was no written welcome w/specifics for the property, just PDF sent apparently covering multiple properties, hence we were somewhat stymied on where to place the garbage cans for pickup and how to retrieve them (one had no identifying marks.)

We were instructed to launder the towels before leaving; on the second load, the washer wouldn't drain (no, it wasn't off balance.) As we were preparing to leave, we discovered that the lefthand side of the French doors at the back was unlockable & we had been unsecured the whole time. We left the last two issues to the cleaning crew who were just coming in.

Bottom line, liked the house very much, but there was more stress involved than we would have wished on a vacation.

Excellent location with a home away from home feel

  • 4 of 5

We are back in AK from our fun, busy week in DC--- this house has a ton going for it-quieter street than most, close to metro and Eastern Market-super close to a small neighborhood food mart. The beds are comfy and house was very clean except for some minor areas on the floors (sticky area in kitchen and a small area in master.) the managers are easy to get ahold of so that questions and concerns can be resolved quickly. I highly recommend this house for families!

Enjoyed the house

  • 4 of 5

A couple of years ago we stayed in DC and rented a house. I enjoyed your house a lot better. No major complaints but the second bedroom's television (I was told) did not work, the basement was sorta spooky (I was told). I would definitely stay again.

This is a great neighborhood and a extremely comfortable home from which one can walk to the mall

  • 5 of 5

The home is comfortable with a palatial master bedroom and 2 very adequate bedrooms with good closet space. I wished for better lighting in both and a bedside lamp in one. Happily, there are ceiling fans in all bedrooms. The back deck is quiet and perfect for all outdoor activities, weather permitting. The living room has comfortable seating for 5 or more people. The home is just as shown on the website and will make your stay enjoyable. This isn't related to the house, but one has to travel .6 or more miles to find groceries. However, I would stay here again when in the D.C. area.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our week here. The house was great! It had enough room for us (family of 5) to have our own space yet be together. Everything was clean and nice. There is a market very close so we could grab some snacks for the kitchen and there are restaurants a 10 minute walk away. We love to walk when we tour and the Capitol was an easy, enjoyable one mile away. Thanks for a taste of living in DC.
