Solidly "Okay."

  • 3 of 5

We booked this place for inauguration/march weekend at an extremely, ridiculously high rate per night, with a 4-night minimum. Was it worth it? I could have overlooked the dirty outdoor stairwell (literally a piece of garbage on the door jamb, as well as old soot and leaves) and the change in aesthetic in the interior (the VRBO listing shows dramatic artwork in the bedroom and by the dining table, which we were saddened to discover had been swapped out for generic watercolor-esque scenes of DC monuments) or even the lack of truly hot water for showering, but I have decided it is better to mention this to prospective renters. What was the nudge? The manager kindly reached out via email after we checked in, wanting to know if there was anything we needed. I replied with two questions (is a blender available? A stretch, I know. Is a hair dryer available? Reasonable request). I never got a reply. Nada. I wouldn't have even reached out had the manager - Cliff - not contacted me, but he did, and then didn't reply, and, well, that's where I get miffed about (egregious dollar amount) a night for 4 nights in a place that was only okay. The location is SUPERB. Also the sleeper in the couch was very good, and the bed comfy. So, those are the perks! I understand that the price was high because of the DC insanity, but it's too bad there wasn't a little effort to offset the extreme.

Would Book It Again!

  • 4 of 5

While I am not a fan of basement apartments, this is an exception. There is plenty of day light, so the apartment does not have that "under ground" feeling. The amenities are very nice, and the beds are very comfortable (even the sofa bed!). Instructions and property access were very straight forward, and the property owner communicated with us promptly. I wish all VRBO property owners would be as efficient and professional. Can't beat the property location either. I would not hesitate to rebook this property in the future.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Besides the very convenient location the place itself was great for our family of 4. This included me and my husband and two teenage daughters. The 1/2 bath worked great for getting the girls ready while we had the luxury of the ensuite bathroom. I think the thing I loved most was the feel of the charming neighborhood as I sat out in the front garden area drinking my morning coffee as I listened to the children across the street happily playing on the playground, and said good morning to people hustling on their way to work. The place itself was nice, clean and quiet which was perfect for us to return to each day after long days of taking in the sights of this amazing area. The metro was easy to get to and the restaurants on nearby 14th street made for a wonderful variety for us to choose from. Thank you Cliff and Paul for allowing us to stay in your great place!

Luxury 1 Bedroom Apt

  • 5 of 5

Great location about 3-4 blocks from a Metro Station. Nice and quiet neighborhood with a grocery store a block away and many restaurants within 4 blocks. Very nice apt. Comfortable bed. We had an issue the first night with some mosquitoes inside the apt but two managers responded immediately to our texts with mosquito spray. Stayed for 5 nights. Would definitely stay there again.

Best location. Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

The location, unbeatable. The apartment really good, comfortable and very convenient. The owners, lovely people, very friendly and welcoming.

Taking out 1 star since the communication with Manager, Cliff, wasn't great and not very friendly. Plus we had some bad situations (wasn't very clean, the heat on AC not working the first 3 days and the worst; people coming 10am and entering the apt. with us sleeping, asking us to check out 3 days before the scheduled check out- really scary situation).

But since the owners were great and the apt. is really nice and location great, we had a great time and liked it!

Just Okay

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here recently with my husband and one year old daughter. We were a bit disappointed with our stay. Apartment was definitely more rundown then depicted. Carpets in living and dining area are different than in the pictures. Furniture in bedroom and living area are also different than pictures. Art in pictures is different. We were unable to use the coat closet because it was locked. The place needed a good vacuuming and dusting.

Pros:

--Short walk to Dupont and 14th Street corridor.

--Safe neighborhood.

--Comfortable bed.

--Internet worked well.

--Kitchen was clean and well-equipped.

--Nice owners.

Cons:

--No hot water in shower. The owner said he adjusted the water heater but our showers were never hot. Not pleasant in the winter.

--Toilet in master bedroom did not flush. My husband kept having to fix it but eventually got tired of it. Good thing there was the half bath.

--Sink in master bedroom did not drain.

--Floor was in need of a good vacuum. Leaves and dirt on floor. Corners of rooms had dirt/dust. Normally wouldn't have been a big deal but we had our one year old with us who crawls all over the place and always has her hands in her mouth.

--Console was dirty, couch had crumbs and needed a vacuum, and back of toilet was dirty. It looked as though debris from the vent had blown onto the back of the toilet. We vacuumed the couch ourselves before sitting on it.

--Several of the electrical outlets were missing covers. Not a big deal for adults but this place was listed as kid-friendly. I didn't expect a crib and a child-proof home but the outlets really should have had covers.

Bottom line: you get what you pay for. Next time we'll stay in a hotel.

Owner's Response: WOW. Not sure why this guest would write such a bad review. I reached out during their stay without a response. The Apt has hot water, and it's own separate heater. Not once during this guests stay did they reach out to me. I find it highly disappointing to have someone stay in my property, have an issue and not communicate them to me for resolution. Take the review as you will but please know that I am a responsible and active host here to help!

Car: not necessary

This is the place! Great location! Safe clean and great public transportation. Use the big bus to see the sights and hop off at your destination. Capitol Bike-share allows you to rent a bike and DC has lots of bike routes.
