Well-appointed apartment in a GREAT location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay and had every comfort we could want. Our two children loved the books and games, and there was plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable. The short walk to the Union Station metro stop makes this apartment a total gem. Plus, the owners were very welcoming! We can't wait to go back.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property overall was excellent -- wonderful location in fantastic, historic neighborhood. The hosts were extremely accommodating, and tried very hard to make my stay enjoyable. The apartment is lower level, but does not feel like a "basement". Very comfortable. The refrigerator could have been a little cleaner, but other than that it was awesome. The neighborhood is wonderful, with many small locally owned restaurants with outdoor seating and were reasonably priced, especially for D.C standards. Definitely worth staying at this location!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This unit is close to the U.S. Capitol, The Mall, and Union Station. Our host met us and gave us a tour of the place. Overall a great place to stay. Host keep things in a closed rear room and stores items in the fridge's freezer. Ready for some spring cleaning with dead bugs in window well and dirty washing machine in utility closet. WiFi was intermittent at times ~ needed to research next day's activities. Great selection of books and games available for your use. Comfortable bed and great water pressure in shower. Host provided nice selection of local eateries to choose from. Easy several block walk to Union Station where everything DC is accessible. No problem driving to this location. Street parking can usually be found within two blocks and the host provides a free parking pass.
