Perfect for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2017 and would stay again for sure! My husband & I, along with our boys, ages 7 & 10, stayed here for a family vacation. It was located in a nice neighborhood with a quick 5 minute walk to the Safeway Grocery store to load up on snacks, breakfast food and dinner food, saving us a lot of $ since we only ate out at lunch. We decided to take Lyft/Uber to the National Mall each day and it was inexpensive and convenient. We actually walked to the zoo and back, with a stop in between for lunch. The house has everything you need, including some extra cooking supplies (be sure to look in cupboard above stove before making your final grocery list). Having the washer/dryer combo was great, I was able to get 90% of our laundry done before we left! Derric, the owner, was quick to respond and check-in to make sure our stay was comfortable. There was noise from the home above us, as other reviews mentioned, but we didn't hear them until the morning hours and we were all so wiped from a day of walking and exploring that it really didn't bother us and certainly won't deter us from staying here again.

Good, but not great

  • 4 of 5

My family (my wife and I plus two school-aged girls) had a great time in this apartment on our recent vacation to DC. It had everything we needed: close to public transportation, a full kitchen, and two beds. The apparent is tiny, but was clean and in good condition. The neighborhood is diverse and vibrant, we loved it. Plenty of parking with the included visitor parking pass. The owner was quickly responsive to emails and helpful throughout the stay. Overall, we had a great time and would stay there again, especially for the price.

A few of the reasons it was good, but not great. The bathroom is very small and had some water damage on the walls. Very low ceilings (I'm 6' and hit my head several times in the kitchen). Very noisy upstairs (we could hear every step from the above apartment). Wifi wasn't working for two out of the three days of our trip.

Overall, a great little apartment if you are looking to stay in DC. We didn't spend too much time there as we were off enjoying the rest of the city, but while we were there it worked for us.

Thanks for having us!

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property and our stay. It was located very close to buses, the metro, restaurants, etc. The apartment was very clean and provided everything we needed and more. Our stay in this location and property was so much fun. It was a family vacation and everyone had a wonderful time! I would recommend it to anyone visiting DC.

Not bad, could be better

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights, and it wasn't bad. We enjoyed being able to walk to a lot of the nearby restaurants and grocery store. The metro is a half mile walk, which was nice. The neighborhood is decent, and I never felt unsafe.

The apartment felt like someone just finished it about a year ago, so everything feels modern and updated. However, somethings seemed a little weird. The tiles aren't all level, and there are spots on corners that there is no grout. Was just odd. The kitchen cabinet's are still raw wood. The shower pan doesn't drain correctly, and there is some water damage and mold starting to build up on the lower, outer walls of the shower.

The ceilings are really low in some parts. It looks like they had ducting go threw certain parts, and just drywalled around it. I am 6'5", and my husband is 6'1", and we had to watch our heads a lot, but at least we could stand comfortably in most parts. I think if you are under 5'10 it wouldn't be an issue.

I found it odd that there were still linens going in the wash when we got there. There were so many that they wouldn't dry. I had to pull some of them out and try to get the washer/dryer to only dry. Even after reading the instructions provided, it still added a rinse cycle. I ended up having to hang some of them to dry so we could use the washer. I do appreciate that there was a washer/dryer available. Being as humid as it was while we were there, we needed to wash cloths more than expected.

The mattress on the bed was thin. I could feel the platform underneath while I slept. However, there were no springs poking out, so I was able to sleep pretty well still.

The couch was comfy. We did not sleep on it, just sat and relaxed. I appreciated the cable/satellite subscription.

The communication with the owner was great. He sent over all the info that we needed to check in, and provided more information once inside.

All in all, I would stay here again. However my husband and I are used to places more on the "wonky" side. I know if I was traveling with some other friends and family, I would not stay here because I know they would not be comfortable. I think it all depends on what you are used to when traveling.
