"Honestly, this was not our first choice in property/location, but we were happy with how it worked out. It was pretty much spot on with what we expected from the description and other reviews. Sherman was very helpful in getting us settled and making sure we had everything we needed. The house has quite a bit of character, and we were impressed with how quiet it was. The kitchen indeed had pretty much everything we needed and appliances were all in good shape. Beds were comfortable. There's a parking pass available for on-street parking, as well as room for one car off street in the back (you may be able to squeeze 2 smaller cars in the back, but its tight).
The street does have a bit of a rough appearance with bars on the windows...but overall we felt safe. The walk to the New York Ave (NoMa-Gallaudet) Metro station was an easy one. The Harris Teeter was also within walking distance and a perfectly safe walk, especially if you stick to Florida Ave which leads into a much nicer neighborhood as you head east than if you walk south on North Capitol which maintains a rougher feel and has more people hanging around the sidewalks. Getting to Union Station or the Capitol Building would be a bit more of a hike if walking, but still technically doable. We stuck to the Metro.
There don't seem to be a lot of nice eat in places nearby, although we didn't look too hard. There's plenty of fast food options within walking distance...as well as a great BBQ place we hit up the night of our arrival, DCity Smokehouse, just around the corner.
Only a couple of negatives. The back porch seemed a bit shaky, and I wouldn't have been comfortable having more than 1 or two people on it. I do believe someone was coming by the morning of our departure to look at it though, so that may be getting addressed. We had some issues getting the 2nd floor comfortable on a couple of the nights after what was probably the first hot days of the season. Sherman responded to me very quickly when I texted him about it...and was willing to come right over and look at the A/C, although we had him wait until the morning since we had kids already asleep. I'm not sure if he found any issue as we weren't there during the day, but it may have had more to do with the programming of the thermostat than the A/C itself. Ultimately blocked some of the 1st floor vents which seemed to make the 2nd floor more comfortable.
So despite a couple of small things we had a very pleasant stay!"

"This neat little row house is on a quiet street in a gentrifying area and proved to be an outstanding choice for a place to stay while attending a three game baseball series at Nationals Park as well as doing a complete sightseeing overview of the city. If you look over the rooftops of the houses across the street, the spires of the stadium are right there! The owner goes out of his way to address all aspects of the stay, including the providing of considerably helpful information on just about everything a visitor needs to know to maximize the benefits of the visit. The house itself is very quiet/comfortable and for two couples, it is perfect from the standpoint of two decent sized upstairs bedrooms complete with their own full bathrooms, as well as a powder room on the main floor. The Navy Yard Metro station is a short walk away, thus easily and efficiently connecting one to most areas of the city. We would recommend buying a week long Smartcard for easy train and bus travel. With a fully equipped house, one is able to cut back on restaurant spending, wash up a load of clothes, take advantage of three flat screen TV's, enjoy the small back patio and generally feel right at home. One can see the dynamics of the changing neighborhood by the numerous construction cranes situated in all directions. Overall, we had an excellent stay (despite rain five our of the six days) and if ever returning to D.C. for baseball, would definitely re-book this facility."

"My husband and I brought 2 children with us. The directions were perfect and our hosts very accommodating and helpful. The apartment had everything we needed. The back patio was very beautiful. For us, the location was key. We were close enough to walk everywhere we needed to go. We would definitely recommend this apartment and we would definitely stay here again."

"Great location, so close to the Metro, grocery store, shopping, lots of restaurants! No need for a car, the Metro, once we got familiar with it, was pretty easy to use. Roomy condo, 5 adults stayed there comfortably for a week with 3.5 baths to share. Kitchen appliances very nice. 3 TV's and a very nice cable package, lots of channels. Nice neighborhood and quiet, and the condo is very secure. The owner's provided lots of information on the neighborhood and what to see in DC. Would highly recommend this condo and we would stay there again if we revisit the city."
