Very convenient to see the DC sights!

  • 5 of 5

My two teenage daughters and I stayed here for a week in April. The week coincided with the Cherry Blossom Festival which was very lucky for us. The apartment was perfect! We were able to make a quick breakfast and hop outside and grab a Lyft to take us our destination for the day. We walked around the neighborhood a few times during the evening and it seems very safe. We mainly ate out but it was nice to have the kitchen for the few meals we ate in. We really liked the Cozy Kitchen just down the street. The bed was very comfortable and we all slept really well - the neighborhood was very quiet considering how close it is to the city.

The owners called me when we arrived to check that we were settled in. We will definitely stay here again if we're back in DC.

Quiet & convienent

  • 5 of 5

It was in a perfect, quiet, historical neighborhood so close to the metro.

So convienient for getting to all parts of the City, but silence at night to sleep. Jim was delightful.

The property is amazing and has a lovely historic feel. I couldn't have been more happy with it.

Although, I had an ear infection on this business trip, it was wonderful to be able to rest at this great apartment. I want to genuinely thank the owners for renting this place to me for the last three nights. When bringing my family here, this rental will be at the top of my list. Thank you for a wonderful DC experience.

What a wonderful accommodation. Immaculately clean and very convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Patrick have a wonderful mental property. We recommend it without any reservations.

The apartment was immaculate and was furnished with everything we required. Jim and Patrick provided us an on street parking pass. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and had to park less than a block away our first night. On Monday morning we were able to park right in front.

The apartment was a 20 minute walk from the National Mall, Smithsonian museums and many of the monuments. We did not use our car until our departure on Wednesday morning.

Jim gave us tour of the living room in their apartment which he has been restoring over the past few years. Both he and Patrick made us feel very welcome. Jim also recommended a Mexican restaurant (El Sol) which was less than a block away. We had a wonderful meal.

We would definitely stay here again the next time we are in DC. We can't say enough nice things about our hosts and the remarkable accommodations they provide.

Great Location, Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

Like other reviewers have said: The owners have a lovely home. It's in a very convenient location. You are within walking distance of restaurants, coffee houses, a delicious bakery (Buttercream), and multiple grocery stores. We either walked or took Lyfts everywhere. The apartment was clean and well kept. The WiFi was spotty at times, but not a big deal as we didn't spend too much time in the apartment.

We would definitely stay here again!
