Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is in a very low key neighborhood within a 5 minute walk to the Capitol Building and a 2 minute walk to the metro. A great location if you are looking to spend a number of days walking around the "mall" area. Marina was very responsive to any questions we had.

Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, lots of room, nicely decorated, nicely appointed and a block from Metropolis or 2 blocks from the Capitol building. Comfortable bed, nice lay out and loved the front patio. WiFi was very slow, but she said she is in the process of upgrading, and TV had buttering issues too. It was clean and nice and I would for sure return again in the future if in the area! Highly recommend.

Good location, safe neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

House is as described and pictured. Nice furniture, good location, safe neighborhood, attractive peaceful residential road of classic DC Row Houses. House was very clean, furniture comfortable, kitchen large & well equipped. Nicely decorated, and outdoor space is very peaceful and quaint. Bathroom shower is large and nice, bathroom is small - but as pictured, and enough for amount of people who would rent the space. CVS and Grocery/bars/restaurants within walking distance - and many delivery options available. I found parking for the car just a few spaces from the house. A/C was not cooling properly, and Internet was very slow, so we were unable to use computers and watch the available TV normally which became frustrating, and temp made sleeping a little uncomfortable. Noise from upstairs people can be quite loud, not sure if they are permanent residents or renters. Owner issued partial refund for a/c and internet, which was fair. We were gone most of the time sight seeing - and this is a great location to see the DC sights. Short cab/Uber or metro to Zoo, Arlington and monuments. If you are young and active, you could walk to the monuments & Capitol. Arrange a tour of Capitol & White House - very interesting. You can also take an elevator to the top of the Trump Post Office Hotel - for free. Best views of the city - especially when the Washington Monument is usually closed to public. You can enter Trump Hotel via Starbucks side of the building for access to the tower. If you have kids, Madame Tussaud's Wax museum was a lot of fun and many photo opportunities. If there had been no issues with a/c and internet, we would have given the place 5 stars - it is very cute and clean. I'm sure both these issues can be quickly corrected for future visitors.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately there was a glitch with the A/C as a prior guest had programmed the A/C to 77. We had the A/C checked the day before the arrival and had repairman had "unblocked " the A/C . However, somehow it got reserved. I was out of town tried to explain how to override the program and offered to send the maintenance person the following morning but the guest was upset and (since it was raining in DC) she opted to leave 1 day earlier of 4 night reservation. Never the less a refund was given for 3 nights. The A/C is working fine and we had 2 set of addtional guests staying in the apt. and no more issues with the A/C and the thermostat.

The temperature in the property was never below 77 degrees. Too hot to sleep well.

  • 2 of 5

Despite my emailing Marina and informing her that the air conditioning would not cool below 77 degrees, no changes were made to make our stay comfortable. Supposedly a repairman came while we were out touring Washington DC landmarks, however the temperature never changed in the condo. When we returned to the condo after the repairman left, he had left out front door open so anyone could have come taken anything they wanted. My grandsons pillows had large circles of sweat on them due to the heat in the condo that night. I again emailed Marina and requested fans but was told there were none available. How about the owner having the air conditioner fixed and or going to the store and buying a fan to make our stay more comfortable? I would never expect a guest to stay in such an oven!! I was not offered any reduction on our condo fee despite the horrible condition of the condo. Very disappointed!!!

Owner's Response: We are very sorry for the guest inconvenience that was due to an override issue with the A/C thermostat . - (guests are in control of the thermostat) . On the 3rd night of the guest stay (5 day stay) around 9:30 pm I received notification of the A/C not cooling below 77. I was out of town and suggested to check the thermostat and told that I was going to leave a message for the maintenance person. The guest was irritate and demanded that the AC be repaired the immediately. I was not able to provide same night service. The same night -and the following day- DC had a torrential rain that pretty much blocked the city (July 28-29). The repairman could not go and check the apt. as the A/C unit is on top of the roof. Nobody went to the until the following day (so I am still confused who could have left doors open), but as soon as the rain stopped the maintenance person went a checked the AC - It was working fine, but since a call was already made to the A/C service the unit was checked - and it was noted that the thermostat was programmed (by another guest) on 77 (24/7). On the last day everything should have been back to "normal" Again, we apologize for the inconvenient.

over the top.

  • 5 of 5

Over the top does not do it justice. In the shadow of the capital. A block from the metro which will take you anywhere for $2. great mex restaurant at the end of the block. The apartment was beautiful. setting in front watching the people each evening was fun. Parking was no problem. Balance gym a block away where I could get a one weeks membership. We will be back.
