Great Property

  • 5 of 5

All was as described in the listing. Close to the capitol. When we missed our bus we just walked to house from the capitol. Owners were very helpful. I definitely would recommend this property. We were able to get to Mt Vernon by way of Metro to Hunnington station and then bus 101 to our destination. Tour transportation was not available because we were there in November.

The Property and its Location are Great.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the Condo was clean and comfortable. It had all the necessary furnishings to make our stay pleasant. We particularly liked having a full kitchen because we were able to prepare our own meals when we chose not to go out to eat.

The Condo is in a great location. Several restaurants, grocery and convenience stores were within walking distance. We especially liked the Medium Rare Restaurant and Harris Twitter Grocery Store. Eastern Market Metro Station is also within walking distance. We took the Metro to see the new African American Museum (one of the main reasons for our visit to DC) and other attractions around the National Mall. We also took Metro to downtown DC, where we went shopping.

One day we walked to the Capitol and we were taking pictures of the Capitol Building, the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court when we noticed a line being formed. So we asked some people what the line was for and, to our surprise, we were told that it was a line for people to tour the Capitol Building. We joined the line and took a tour of the Capitol. It was very interesting and informative; we really enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Condo and would definitely recommend it to our friends and relatives!

Great apartment in convenient location, easy walk to Capitol Hill and Mall.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights in October, and walked everywhere from the apartment. The location was very convenient, and proximity to the train was great as we did use the train system to get home a few times. Walking at night the area was well lit and felt safe.

We stayed with our child, she loved her room downstairs and sitting at the table, watching the people go by. We ate at home a few nights and each morning. Definitely a great spot in terms of location, and the apartment was just what we needed for our stay.

In terms of supplies for the time, we had an abundance of choice, with great shops and bakery, coffee etc down the road, local convenience store close by in a different direction, and major supermarket towards the ball park. If you want a one stop shop head here!

We would definitely stay here again, as four nights is not enough time to scratch the surface of things to do in Washington DC.

Great stay and location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is nice and clean. The proximity to the Metro and numerous restaurants on 8th St is awesome. Alison was always quick to respond if we had any questions prior to our arrival. Once we arrived, she took the initiative to check on us to see if we had everything we needed. Would stay here again!

Great location!

Our family of six stayed here! We were close to most attractions and felt safe in this charming residential neighbourhood. Well stocked and accommodating, this property offered everything we needed. Many wonderful restaurants just minutes away and the Metro was so convenient. Would stay here again!
