Great hospitality, easy location, clean and organize!

My friends and I had incredible time in DC and Ghina was very helpful with her tips and helping us. She is a wonderful host and the apartment is very convenient, well equipped, organized and clean!

Our stay was very enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for about 5 weeks and had a very nice stay. Ghina was very accommodating with anything we needed but at the same time giving us our privacy. The apartment was very convenient to everything. We did have a car but if you didn't there was a bus stop in front of the house that took you to the metro. The neighborhood was very nice and quiet. My grandkids came and stayed frequently and they were very welcomed by Ghina. The backyard patio was nice with a grill but unfortunately the heat this summer was so bad we were unable to take advantage of it. Everything was there that we needed for a long term stay. I would definitely stay there again.

Easy, comfortable access to to the DC area

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is one of many I have rented through VRBO and we found it comfortable and easy access to the surrounding area. The location is in a great, and very safe neighborhood with easy access to the bus, public parking for the Metro and local eatery/shopping venues. We brought two 11 year old boys with us and the space was great for the 4 of us to share. I would easily stay again and would recommend, especially for families. The furnishings and provisions are well worn, so we didn't feel like we were staying in a place where we had to worry about the kids- this may be a turn off to others, but the homey feeling worked for us .

A couple of things to note: The TV now has cable. If you are tech savvy, the Wii interface is great for streaming all your other channels with a Netflix account provided. The bathroom is small! The kitchen is usable, but also small, and the fridge is not the coldest - no icemaker, so bring a bag with you. Nice to have dishwasher. As I said , the furnishings are well worn - including linens, towels, shower curtain, etc. - not a huge deal for us, but I can see this being a turn off for others- not a hotel level experience in terms of cleanliness of the kitchen and bath or the state of the towels/pillows. The beds were comfy!

Overall we liked the location and the feel of the place!

Clean, good location and friendly

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Ghina, was very friendly, available for questions, and quick to respond. The listing was as it appeared and very clean. Parking was easy and the neighborhood safe and quiet. It was nice to have a full size washer and dryer. Ghina even supplied detergent. The bathroom was small but adequate. Bedrooms were large and spacious. Nice to have a king bed. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything you would need if you wanted to cook. A whole foods was nearby. Even though in a basement of the main house the rooms had lots of light. Short, easy, drive to Bethesda and American university. Easy to find location. Ghina even supplied metro/bus passes (we had a car so didn't need). If it hadn't been raining we would have used the nice backyard space. A well maintained property. We would stay here again if in the DC area. Thank you Ghina!

OK place!

  • 3 of 5

Ghina was very easy to work with and was accommodating when I needed to change our dates. However, the place itself was not what I was expecting. The living room furniture consisted of a futon bed and other small couch, neither of which were comfortable to sit on and relax after a long day of walking. I was also a bit disappointed in the very small bathroom and kitchen areas. I don't usually like to write reviews but I find them valuable when trying to find a place that fits my individual needs and the attributes of what I think are important. Hope this helps.

Two very nice bedrooms and conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

The two bedroom apartment was very nice, clean and comfortable. There was a nice view of the neighborhood from both of the bedrooms. We were happy to have such a good home in Bethesda for 3 days! Ghina was very responsive to all of our questions before and during our stay. A great host!
