"I stayed in this apartment for a month while working in DC and I loved it. It is a cozy one bedroom apartment in a great location. It's about half a mile from the metro station , and a mile and half from the capitol. I was able to walk to most of the places I wanted to go. The apartment was quiet , had a washer and dryer, and nice kitchen. I really felt at home here and wold recommend it to anyone who is planing a longer trip to the District."

"Our family of 6, with kids ages 9-17, stayed for 5 nights. The house was clean and air-conditioned when we arrived, perfect for the humid Washington DC summer. We walked and used a 7 day metro pass to go everywhere including Arlington, Georgetown (using the free Georgetown shuttle) and the National Shrine. The proximity to Union Station was ideal. The unit's 3 stories actually worked well for us, giving us plenty of space to spread out when we needed it. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had enough supplies to make dinner out of fresh ingredients bought at nearby Eastern Market. Owners easy to work with, returned deposit promptly after our stay. Would return to this unit in a heartbeat."

"We rented the apartment for our son who was doing an Internship at the Capitol. It was close enough for him to walk each day to and from work. He was very happy with the apartment and it's layout. It had everything he needed for the time he was going to be in D.C. All we needed to do was buy him food. Perfect for his parents and him. If he needed anything he could walk a couple of blocks in any direction and find what he needed. The owners were a great help providing info, especially things a 21 year old would be interested in."

"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!"
