We would stay here again...and we're picky!

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice little apartment in a great location....very near a Metro stop and a 20 min. walk to the Capitol. The VRBO listing is accurate. There is a good Mexican restaurant just down the street. It was much more comfortable staying here than in a hotel, and it was handy to have the kitchen for breakfast and a quick lunch. It is furnished in a funky 60s vibe, but it was clean and comfortable. There is a bit of traffic noise in the mornings. The bathroom is very small with no counter space. We opted to have the owner get us a parking pass, and we were able to park along the curb right in front of the apt. with no fear of being towed or getting a ticket. We never moved our car.

We used Uber as we have difficulty with long walks, and it was cheap and fast. We also used the two-day on/off tour trolley. What we didn't plan on were the long outdoor lines (30 min.) to get in the Smithsonian museums and the Capitol due to security checks. We felt safe everywhere we went, and impressed overall with DC.

Great apartment, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This is a roomy, comfortable apartment and the location is unbeatable. Marina and James greeted us upon our arrival and explained everything about the workings of the apartment, they couldn’t have been nicer. Marina gave us detailed instructions for getting to the apartment from Metro, and it was very easy. They gave us suggestions on local restaurants of which there are numerous ones with in a 5-15 minute walk. We stayed for 11 nights and tried a different restaurant each night. At less than a block from a Metro station and within a 5 minute walk of the US Capitol building, getting around DC and the many sites was very easy.

The living room chairs and sofa were quite comfortable, as well as the bed. All furniture and settings were accurately pictured on the VRBO site, and the lighting was bright and abundant – something that is sorely lacking in many hotel rooms and in other apartments we have rented. The only draw back was the washer/dryer and the lengthy wash, dry, and cool down cycles. However it was not enough to reduce the number of stars we have given the apartment. If we return to DC someday, we would not hesitate to check out the availability of the apartment, and would likely plan our time around its availability.

Very nice apt in a quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Lovely clean apt suitable for a couple. Very convenient to Metro. Would have given five stars but felt unwelcomed by owners (I.e. Complained about previous renters asking stupid questions; leaving something in the frig when departing was a major offense, etc). We are very frequent users of VRBO accommodations and have never been addressed so before.

Owner's Response: I am not quite sure how to reply to this review as we try to make all our guests welcome by providing a safe, clean and true to description place, additionally we make the point to meet all our guests (when possible ) to make them more comfortable at check in. At check in time we spend 10-15 minutes to go over the neighborhood, offer tips about places to visit and to eat. We then fade away but always available if guests are in need. We take this time to review the house guidelines as well. I don't recall complaining about guests (never did before ) and if we remind about leaving open food or left overs behind is more an hygienic measure than a major offense. Sorry that this made you unwelcomed.

It was the perfect place to be able to explore Washington DC on foot or via the Metro.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a great location for both neighborhood restaurants, the metro (a block away), and the Library of Congress (Jeffersonian). The accommodations were perfect for the two of us. A comfortable bed, new bathroom, a kitchen, and large living room with a large TV as well as literature for things to do in DC. We definitely would stay there again.

The listing was accurately described, the property was clean and well-maintained, the owner did provide good customer service. I would recommend this property to others. We liked being able to walk to the Library of Congress and get there before anyone else, thus seeming to have it to ourselves to explore. It opens at 8:30 am. We also liked dropping in at the corner Mexican restaurant for a drink or a light dinner.
