Recent Washington property reviews
"We rented the apartment for six nights (August 12-18) and it was a great choice. Location is good (convenient for walking, to metro and buses, to grocery and drug store). The kitchen has all the cooking necessities needed which worked out well for us for making meals. The contact person, Cliff, was professional and helpful throughout. The apartment looks just as it appears on the website, with eclectic furniture (mix of vintage and IKEA) and lots of open space. Much better for us than staying in a hotel. I would stay here again on any future trips to DC."Guest: K. Norrie Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 19, 2014View listing
"Our family of 4 stayed for 5 days. It was a bit crowded for 4 people, but our needs were met. The wired internet worked well, but wireless connections were unpredictable. The printer for the computer came in handy when we needed it. The small kitchen was also very useful for cooking our own meals. We had a very short walk to the Metro (subway) that we used for all transportation. If you plan to use the Metro, it is best to get the plastic card and refill it as needed. For $1.75 per person, we could travel from the apartment to all our places of interest in the DC area. That is a great deal considering that parking in DC is around $35/day. The Metro was very fast and efficient, and we loved it. We parked in the garage under the building and did not use our car all week. The apartment could use some updates. There was a broken towel bar in the bathroom, and the air conditioner seemed to struggle to keep the room cool. It ran constantly, but the room was never cold. However, it was comfortable enough for us when we also used the fan. The outside temperature was about 90 degrees all week. The building was very secure and felt safe. Building residents and other people in DC were friendly. The grocery store was also very close. The Holocaust Museum and the Newseum were nice places to visit, and the bus tour was enjoyable. Besides the Newseum and the bus tour, everything else we did for the week was free. There was so much to do that we could have stayed an extra week without repeating any activities. If we return to DC, I would stay here again. The location and security were both great."Guest: Laurie C. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 28, 2014View listing
"Overall great experience. Although our condo was not the one in pictures it worked out ok. Spence was great to work with and always got back to us with any questions we had. Laundry on site was a HUGE plus as we are a family of 6. Convenience to Metro was PERFECT! Great pool, and even felt safe enough for a morning or evening run. Grocery store on site was also a bit hit!! Highly recommend this condo!"Guest: Amber G. Date of Stay: June 2011 Review Submitted: July 13, 2011View listing
"My family (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here for four nights over this recent winter holiday. We found the house charming and well-equipped and its location ideal. The management team was also extremely helpful, always available by email and ready with a tip on where to eat or go. We are walkers, so we found the 40-min walk from the house to the various museums on the mall and elsewhere very doable. We visited the Newseum, Spy Museum, Hirshorn, among others. We heartily recommend the Newseum. The Spy Museum was a bit of a letdown, as its information is poorly coordinated making it hard to mark the evolution in how we approach intelligence gathering. You can take a closer walk to the Capitol or the Capitol Hill area with its shops and the Eastern Market. If you aren't a walker, the metro is near enough that you can make easy use of it."Guest: fran Date of Stay: December 2012 Review Submitted: January 2, 2013View listing
