Very nice but rugs in master and living room are potential slipping hazard.

  • 4 of 5

Considering there were 3 of us for 10 days should of had more towels and washcloths. Once we figured out which direction to go very easy public transportation.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, We are very happy that you had an enjoyable stay. We will look into the rugs and ensure the potential slipping is addressed. Also, we have replenished the towels inventory since we did notice that a few had gone missing. We value your feedback as it helps us keep our property in tiptop shape for our guests.

This home is the perfect example of why we choose VRBO over hotels.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the character and amenities in this home. It was evident that the owner traveled with all the lovely decorative touches from around the world. Everything we needed was there for a comfortable and pleasant stay. I had a few questions that were promptly answered and addressed with no difficulty. Parking was easy and the home was simple to find. We would definitely recommend staying here for both the home and the area's sights.

Wonderful experience!

We had a wonderful experience staying in this condo. The location is very convenient to many DC attractions as well as great shopping and restaurant options nearby. The condo is clean and well equipped with everything you need for an extended stay. The beds are very comfortable and the appliances and kitchen are great! The owner is very kind, helpful and responsive. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others. Great experience!
