Charming, Cozy, & Clean
This apartment is lovely! Quiet, safe & convenient location. Clean & comfortable property. Andrea is an excellent communicator, and she cares about both her space and her clients. I cannot wait to stay here again!
We spent spring break week with our two teen age girls seeing the sights of DC. Loved the feel of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and Lincoln Park was great for them to get their daily running in. We used the metro to get all around DC from the Eastern Market station. The accommodations were fine for our purposes. There is an inflatable bed available which gave the kids separate sleeping spots, a surprise we didn’t think we’d have. The kitchen was adequate for making some simple meals and there is a Trader Joe’s near the Metro station for basic groceries. We also took advantage of bakery treats at the Eastern Market a couple of times! We did get ticketed for parking on the side street one day, but the owner quickly arranged for a guest permit for us for the rest of the week. She was very responsive!
I will be back
very good apartment, very clean and good appliances. Nice location... I come back for sure.
Good location, clean and bright
Great location for us as we use the Metro exclusively in DC. Short walk to Eastern Market (station and the market, bakery in the market has excellent desserts) and a nice park ½ block away. Surprisingly bright for a basement apartment. "Real" grocery store is a bit of a hike, but Safeway will deliver and sometimes has coupons for free first delivery. Tenant above was up and walking around above the bedroom about 07:30 daily but quiet evenings. Well equipped kitchen (we cook in breakfast and most dinners). WiFi was solid, never a drop. Recommend for a couple, the only bath is accessed via the bedroom.
Nice rental convenient to many attractions
Place was clean and had plenty of towels and bedding for my husband , me and my teenage son (who slept on the sleeper sofa). Beds were comfortable. Nice to have a tea kettle to make morning tea. Washer and dryer was very nice to have since we were there for a week, which meant we could pack lighter.
Eastern market area was a great area for dining options and the Metro, about 5 blocks away. The $1 circulator bus frequently goes through and can drop you off along the national mall. The circulator bus was also very easy to take to a Nationals game.
Two City bike share docks were only 2 blocks away. If we were out the door by 9am, the three of us could get bikes easily. Highly recommend the bike share system. Bikes become very scarce by the monuments during the evening (tour the monuments when lit up). We use the bikes to primarily get around, using the metro and the circulator busses as other options.
The only reason I don't give this property a 5 star is because the overhead neighbor (this rental is in the basement of a brownstone). The pictures were very accurate and gives you a feel for the rental. The bathroom was en suite with the bedroom, but I knew before hand because another review mentioned it. It was not a problem for us. However, the upstairs neighbors seemed to go out during the evening and then bring home many friends after 11pm. They would sing and walk and talk kind of loudly. 'This happened for maybe 4-5 of the 7nights we were there. they would wake us up, but I could fall asleep pretty easily after being startled by the upstairs neighbors. I think my son slept through it, my husband found it somewhat annoying. Nothing the owner can do, but be aware.
Great place to stay
This basement apartment is lovely. The furnishings are nice and homey. It is very clean. It is close to the Capital, in fact you can see it from the apartment. It is about 2 blocks from a bike share. The owner returned my emails promptly and answered all my questions. The only negative was that the apartment noise from above. It would awaken us in the middle of the night when the upstairs guests would get home. I highly recommend this apartment.
The house is located 10 blocks from the US Capitol and half a block from Lincoln Park.
