About Darryl SK
owner is a graduate architect/construction manager with eye for detail and quality workmanship. I believe in putting up buildings with great functionality. I have been building and selling real estate for the last twenty years and i have in the last year started to lease out some of my units to tourist, so they can see and appreciate some of the quality of work we do and my unique contribution to the gentrification of the great old Washington DC.
Darryl SK purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Darryl SK chose Eckington
This property was built and completed in 2016 and it is one of sixteen duplex condo unit on a very quiet block. The block is constituted by mid to upper class professionals. This unit is one out of the only four duplex units reserved as rental/vacation homes. The rest of the units are very similar, there are two three-bedroom duplex units and two four-bedroom duplex units. the two upper units come with a roof deck that commands a little premium. These units are very contemporary in nature and the interior shows all the modern amenities, these are a must-see unit.
What makes this Condo unique
My place is conveniently located, spacious, clean, impeccably decorated and had an included parking spot which is worth its weight in gold! An ideal setup for a large family getaway...I’m a very responsive and accommodating host! My unit is about 2 minute drive to the Metro rail stop and Rhode Island Ave where you can park your car all day for $4.95 and pay with your SmarTrip Card which is so convenient. It’s under 10 minutes total to get to downtown by the White House on the Red Line. There is a liquor store, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Restaurant’s and supermarket for necessities within a few minutes drive or you could certainly walk it. There is no reason to pay more for less with a hotel when this place is nicer than a hotel! Come check it out and enjoy one of the hidden luxury of dc.

We had a family of 7 stay here & loved it! It was beautiful, comfortable, & a great location to the metro that took us everywhere we needed to go! Darryl was very accommodating & had a very quick response time. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here or another property of Darryl’s.
My family and I so enjoyed staying here. It was great, so spacious and updated and everyone had their own space. So much superior to a hotel without a doubt. We had no problems with parking and we had two cars. We drove to National Mall and parked in a garage nearby so that worked out great. We all would stay there again. Loved it!
This was my first time in DC, and first time using this service (and I have never used Air B&B). Overall I was very happy with our stay and the location was approximately 15-20 minutes away from most everything. Below are some minor feedback items:
1- My biggest complaint was the cleaning service. They left a dishwasher fill of dirty dishes and they didn't put any clean towels in one of the bathrooms
2- Not a major deal, but there were NO trash bags...as small as the trashcan(s) are we definitely took the trash out often and had to use grocery bags
3- Only 1 of the bdrms has a TV. However the owner has committed to getting a TV for each of the other 2 rooms
4- Lastly, parking was slightly a challenge, but that is neither here nor there given that is a challenge in all of DC.
Ultimately I would recommend this unit. The owner is VERY responsive and willing to address any concerns/issues immediately.
Thank you Darryl!!!
Nice Home but some details lacking
Overall the home is nicely appointed but the owner should pay more attention to the details. Our biggest complaint is cleanliness and this was a biggie!! We found that at least 2 of the 3 bedrooms were not cleaned properly. We found hairs from the previous guest in the sheets and on the duvets. Unfortunately, it was after midnight when we made the discovery so we slept on top of the bedding. The next morning I pulled all the sheets and spent my morning doing laundry. Not what I wanted to do on my vacation! Upon complaining to the owner and sending him pictures as well, he did reach out to his cleaning service and they responded by sending someone to "re-clean" the house while we were out for the day. All she did was pull the sheets I washed out of the drier and made the beds. She didn't wash the duvets as we requested or sweep and mop the floors as we requested. Owner didn't follow up. Although he uses a cleaning service, the owner needs to periodically inspect the home to be sure they are doing their job, after all, the bad review is a reflection of the owner. Don't allow someone else to damage your reputation.
The other major issue would be the a/c unit. This is a 3 level home and there is only 1 a/c unit for all 3 levels which means that the 1st level where the kitchen and one bedroom are located are very cold while the 2nd level is only moderately comfortable and the 3rd level was not comfortable at all. To be fair, the 3rd level only has the bar area and leads to the roof top patio so there isn't any seating or bedrooms on that level. At night we had the a/c at 72 and as I stated the 2nd floor was just cool enough for us to sleep but the 1st floor was sleeping in a sweater. I have a 2 story home with 2 a/c units, which is the only way to keep a multi level home "comfortably" cooled or heated.
The other issues for us were not major but things the owner should consider. The 3rd bedroom has 2 full size bunk beds but no TV. I realize we are on vacation but it rained EVERY day we were in DC so we spent a little more time inside and it just wasn't "like home" when there was no TV. Children don't want to watch what the adults watch. Please consider spending $200 for a TV for the children's room.
There are no baking sheets or pans in the kitchen. Only pots available. I bought biscuits for breakfast and I had to be creative on cooking them. Not major, but something to consider to make your rental more like home.
As i mentioned when we spoke, I apologize for any inconvenience regarding the cleanliness of the unit. I do go in and check the units before all my guests check in but unfortunately wasn’t able to check before your arrival. According to my cleaning company, the cleaner assigned to the unit has been reprimanded and they indeed apologized as well.
The AC unit in the unit works very well, the issue is the varying needs of every guest that occupy the unit, apparently, the vents were closed prior to your arrival thereby altering the flow of air. I guess we have to start checking after each guest to make sure the vents are not tampered with. Although it is not possible for me to add an additional AC unit, I appreciate your candid feedback and will take some of the other things you mentioned under advisement.
Once again thank you for choosing my vacation rental.
Modern, spacious and central to all of Washington , DC!!
Cudos to Daryl for being a great host and offering his incredible 3 story townhome. We had a sister’s Washington DC birthday party over the Memorial Day weekend and had a blast. The place is close to all the historical sights. As well as being near wonderful shopping, theater and incredible dining!
Modern, plenty of space to be comfortable and parking.
The townhouse was plenty large enough for our group of seven. That being said 3 were children and shared one room with oversized bunk beds. The bathrooms were nice (hot water ran out quickly), laundry and parking.
The kitchen had the basics, no pans for the oven and we had to frequently wash silverware to not run out.
The trash, recycling and parking were all located in the same area. It was a bit tight to park but we had a large SUV.
The drive time to the Capital was 15-20, traffic was very congested. The metro station was quite a ways away. The bus stop was on the same block. Probably best to have a vehicle or use a taxi.
All in all we had a nice time at 22B Eckington.
