Very nice apartment in not so nice area
The apartment itself was great, exactly as pictured! We just had a tough time actually relaxing in it as the area is very noisy. The way to get the key is very awkward and unsafe in my opinion with such a busy pedestrian area. We had some problems with the cable and internet but they responded very quickly and were very kind. The balcony had bird droppings on the seats and if you flip the cushions same thing so you cannot sit outside if you wanted to...also had ash tray with questionable items in it. Great place but definately do your research before booking. This was our 9th time to DC in the past 2 years and I’ll probably continue back to staying near downtown.
Not what it claimed too be.
Let me state that the apartment was clean and well appointed. Please be advised that this apartment is not dog friendly. I saw that the listing stated that pets would be considered. My husband and I were traveling with our 2 small dogs. I inquired the rente if it would be possible if our 2 dogs could join us and she stated that we could have our dogs . This was not the case. We were only in the apartment for one night and we received a notice from the management that dogs were not allowed on the premises. I was very anxious and upset when I received this news. I wrote to the rente and she did not even respond to me. This ruined our trip because I was so worried about the situation. I found it difficult to sleep on 3 out of the 5 nights because of several sirens and alarms sounding.
Wonderful Attention To Detail
This apartment is clean... almost spotless! For once on VRBO, the photos ARE representative of the actual condition of the rental. We'd like to give Bernadette 6 out of 5 stars for her hard work!
The owner did a great job decorating--not corny like a hotel... just right to make you feel like you are staying at a friend's home. The top blanket on the bed is an ultra soft material that smelled so good that my wife wanted to take it home (...yes, we reluctantly left it behind...). The kitchen has very nice appliances and, again, did I mention that everything was so clean?
Apartments are known for not-so-pleasant neighbors. The residents in this complex are friendly and helpful. This apartment is on the 3rd (top) floor so the only sounds we heard from other residents was the plumbing for morning showers. Otherwise, we didn't know they were there.
The apartment complex is surrounded by a substantial security fence so we felt safe inside. Unfortunately, beyond these fortress walls, lies the sound of sirens beginning around 8 pm until sunrise. Just falling asleep... and here comes another 8-alarm emergency. Every 15 to 30 minutes is not an exaggeration. I've never been to a noisier city. This is not the fault of the owner. Bring good earplugs and you should be OK.
Convenient location, Very clean!
The apartment is just as described! It is beautiful and clean, close to metro and if you drive, it is easy to commute. There is a microwave, unlike the last reviewer said. You do hear sirens day and night but you get used to it and the tv helps drown out the noise. The owner responds quickly as well to any questions.
Close to the Metro and Free Secure Parking
We liked the gated parking and the close proximity to the Metro Silver and Blue Lines. What we did not love was hearing the sirens from the ambulances and Fire Trucks going by at all hours. The Kitchen is lacking measuring cups and measuring spoons as well as a mixing bowl and did not have a microwave as listed in the description. It was nice to be able to relax in something larger than a hotel room in the evenings and "cook" dinner for our family of four. (we manged pizza and salad) The owner was very responsive when we had a question.
Apartment was beautiful and very close to the metro. Had an amazing time.
