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 t her inability to adjust the A/C thermostat control inside the apt. - (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. Unfortunately 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 (who # is available in the apt.) called the A/C person who came and noted that the thermostat was programmed (by another guest) on 77 (24/7). The A/C repairman then checked d the unit on the roof and found no issues. When guest contacted me stated on the last day of her stay , she stated that the fan inside the apt. was OK and because it rained so hard the temp. was not too bad. Again, we apologize for the inconvenient. I guess leaving the house dirty and taking a couple towels as a souvenir was a pay back for the terrible stay.

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.

Marina was so helpful upon check in, giving us some pointers about the city, as well as suggestions for where to visit. The flat was perfect! Close to the metro, and walking distance to to mall. We had an excellent vacation.

Great location for DC site seeing!

  • 4 of 5

We (wife and I and 15 year-old son) just spent a couple of nights at this location and it was perfect for seeing the DC sites. Very close to the Capitol Building but a bit of a hike to see the monuments. We ended up using the DC Citybikes at the end of the first day to be able to tour all the monuments and get back to the apartment - it was also hot and that contributed to fatigue but the AC in the apartment worked very well. There was a small master bedroom and our son had a portable bed in the living room - slept well because we were tired. There is a full kitchen if you want to eat in but we tried a Mexican restaurant on the same block that was reasonably good, as well as a carry out pizza place. We would certainly use the apartment again for a short trip to DC. It was nice to park the car and leave it on the street without worry for a couple of days ($20 additional fee). The owner met us when we arrived and did a walk through with us when we left - easy to work with and had good suggestions for what to do. Overall, great location for the visit and much better than a hotel room.
