"I enjoyed this location and the proximity to attractions. Parking is tight for a large vehicle be careful!"

"I'll start by saying that my family reunion of 14 people was a big success. We were in the house for 10 days. Overall, we liked the location and the house -- especially the pool. The pool was well maintained by an entertaining pool guy, and the landscaping around it was quite pretty.
There is a very nice kid's park just down the street. The Washington Nationals ballpark is within walking distance. The metro stops are also nearby.
Lauren promptly answered our calls and did a great job getting parking passes for our kids' vehicles.
Based on all the glowing reviews, we expected an extremely well-managed and welcoming property. Unfortunately, we got off to a shaky start -- our check-in time was 3 p.m. When we arrived just before 3, the cleaning ladies had not yet arrived. They did not finish cleaning until 6. Only one bathroom had soap and shampoo. We found only a couple roles of extra toilet paper. There was no tourist information on the premises -- free or otherwise. There was no "welcome booklet" with directions on how to care for the house and/or find things, although there were signs about the pool and washing machine. We hunted for pillows, blankets, towels. Things could have been better organized. We did appreciate the bottle of wine left in the fridge to welcome us.
The house comfortably sleeps only 9 -- 4 queen beds and a fold out couch for 1. There is another couch in the living room which you can use, but it is not particularly comfortable. You can fit more people on inflatable mattresses, but those are not provided for you. Thankfully, some of our family drove to the reunion and could bring them.
We did not find the kitchen as well-equipped as others. There were no steak knives at all and there was barely enough flatware for 12. The knives -- some Cutco -- would have been good if they had been sharpened or if there were a sharpener on premises. There were no grill tools, and one of the grill burners did not work at all. Again, we brought our own knives, flatware, and some pans. Lauren said she would provide grill tools and matches to start the broken burner.... she did not. We did know in advance that the dining table was not designed to seat 14, but we expected to find enough chairs to squeeze everyone at the very large table. The house did not have enough chairs, and Lauren was unwilling to provide even cheap folding ones.
The house was built in 1890. Lots of charm"

"My 18 year old son and I visited DC for a week of museums and memorials. This location was great because everything was within walking distance. The apartment is well maintained and parking was much better than I anticipated."

"Great place that gives you the feel of living in DC Capital Hill area. Coming from the Southwest, this was unique to us and beat a hotel with five of us. We had plenty of room for the family and the property is well equipped, very clean, and modern decor. Wifi was strong, neighborhood was friendly, and we were close to the US Capital, Library of Congress, and US Supreme Court...all on our list of "must see" for this trip. Enjoyed being able to stroll down to see the 8 p.m. military band perform on the steps of the Capital while the sun set behind the Washington Monument. Really appreciated the parking permit dropped off promptly, and is a MUST if you are renting a car. The parking, however, is very limited and be prepared to look around for a bit for a space. Still, some easy drop off, pick up areas and always found spaces none beyond a block. Also, good thing my wife read the bit about moving the car on street sweeping day. Streets in DC were a bit difficult to navigate for us, and if you are heading down the National Mall or to the White House, I recommend public transport or the Capital Bike Share. Still, so many things to see along the way, that our family (wife/myself and two teens) walked the entire way with one quick on and off a bus... the advice to wear good walking shoes is no joke. If you plan on seeing the monuments on the west side, definitely take transport. 7-11 just nearby for quick stock up, but no gas. Be sure to arrange a Capital Tour with your State Senator's or Representative's office at least 3 weeks in advance to avoid the long lines and get a more personal tour. Bit of a moth ball smell when first entering the property, but noticed no bugs at all, so must be doing the job. Air conditioning was spot on and controls are very simple to use and respond quickly. Great to have three restrooms and all pristine."
