Very nice location with a very helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

The location was top-notch for getting to the Capitol and National Mall. Bikes were super handy, as the distances are greater than you'd think. The environment around the apartment seemed to be safe and quiet, and it was also relatively close to good restaurants and the Eastern Market. Overall, I am very glad we opted for this place over some of the others we were considering!

Beautiful apartment in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This small (for a family of 4) but well provisioned apartment was really sweet and tasteful and very clean and well maintained. The location was superb, in the middle of Capitol Hill and walkable to just about anywhere. We didn't have time to take advantage of the bikes but it was really generous to include those in our stay. And the free off street parking was incredibly valuable to us because we had a rental car. And the owner was responsive and helpful and provided great instructions for checking in and out. We would definitely recommend this place.

Very Convenient Location!

  • 5 of 5

I am a single mother of two that stayed at this location 06/18-06/24/16. The location is wonderful and seems to be very safe. The home is located in a beautiful historic area. I had no concerns walking down to the Eastern Market area in the evening with my kids to grab a bite to eat. We were also able to walk to the Capitol but it is a bit of hike since the locations we wanted to visit are spread out it could make for a tiring day! It is doable but we ended up using Uber most of the time to take us down to the national mall area and walked plenty from destination to destination. Karen was very friendly and left wonderful suggestions on local places to eat, etc. The apartment itself is clean and stocked extremely well with everything one could possibly need during their stay.

We visited this downstairs, one bedroom from 6.12.16 to 6.16.16. I am a single father of a nine year old boy. I hadn't been to DC since I was in middle school, so the experience was very new to both my son and I. I was extremely hesitant flying in from Denver, Colorado and not renting a car. I am so glad we didn't rent a car. Karen supplies two bikes and one of them fit my nine year old son. She also supplied a lock too so we could easily lock our bikes together to a post or something similar on the National mall. This unit has all the amenities you will need. We cooked there which is an awesome way to save money. She also supplies all the basics. It was neat to pack a bag of chips or snacks that we bought because there are sandwich bags in the drawer. Nice air conditioning, always comfortable. We loved the location. Friendly neighborhood. We never felt scared, uneasy etc. Karen supplied two Metro cards which came in handy. We would walk south to the nearest Metro station at the Eastern Market. Maybe a seven to fifteen minute walk. Super close. From there, you can go anywhere. It stops relatively close to everything. My son wasn't tall enough to use DC's bike share program. If you can utilize that do. Across the street from Karen's is a bike share station. So instead of walking to the Metro, you walk across the street, check out a bike and ride to the metro. We really enjoyed using Karen's bikes and riding to the capitol every night. It's a few minute ride to the west. Riding around our nations capitol every night and then exploring the national mall after dark was the real deal. It's so majestic. So if you're hesitant on planning your trip; Don't be. DCA is at most a 22 minute taxi ride. From Denver, we enjoyed one person in front of us going through security and leaving from Reagan there was no one in line at security. Get your vacation on. Happy Traveling and tell Karen, Brodie says hi

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a really great neighborhood on the Hill. Very close to everything! The space is well appointed and has modern furnishings. It looks exactly like the photos! The apartment was just as expected with lots of natural light with an open airy feel. Lots of extras in the kitchen and bath that make it easy to move in right away. We arrived late so the coffee in the apartment really helped the next morning. Eastern market is a short walk and try some of the many restaurants on 7th and 8th which are are a short stroll from the apartment! We really enjoyed our stay and we look forward to coming back soon! Karen was great with suggestions and recommendations!
