Tiny place.

  • 2 of 5

The decor of the place is very cute. I would not recommend anyone taller then 5'7" sleeping in the bed, it's a lot smaller in person. This homeaway is not worth how much they charge. There were a lot of fees on top of how much it is to rent. The place is to small to stay any longer than one night, it is in a basement and has a muggy smell.

Good Value/poor Management

  • 2 of 5

Two days prior to arrival I emailed the managers (Kevin & Tamara) letting them know I was unable to access my entry code information to the property. Luckily, I was able to retrieve the info the day of my arrival, because the current manager did not respond to me via email until the day AFTER my scheduled arrival. Upon arrival there was no extra inflatable bed set up, as was pre-arranged with my rental. When I contacted Kevin & Tamara thru the phone number left in the studio, Kevin promptly returned my call, and informed me that they were no longer the managers, even though the emails were still coming using their names, and their phone numbers were still in the unit as the only contact. I am so appreciative to KEVIN, for taking time out of his own work schedule to walk me thru finding an air mattress and sheets on the property, that I set up, so that my grandson could go to bed. He also kindly directed me to a local shopping store that was still open, and sent me an address to the restaurant he was working in for us to get a meal. Clearly this property USED to have great managers. During the time we stayed the garbage can was filled to overflowing outside the stairway and the smell was not to pleasant. The TV is inside the bed, which I was prepared for, but we were unable to connect to any stations except Netflix. Since we had no contact phone number, there was no way to find out if this was normal. Fortunately, we only used this as a base while we saw the capitol sights. It was a 12 minute walk to the metro, a 25 minute walk to the Capitol building, and just a few blocks from Whole Foods and several restaurants. I rent through VRBO frequently, and I have to say this was my first poor experience with a manager, and the lack of communication, so I was not impressed.

It was okay.

  • 3 of 5

The property was easy to find and access. Inside it was exactly like the pictures and descriptions.

We were a little disappointed in the cleanliness. I had to sweep when we arrived and the shower wasn't very clean at all. It has the pink-ish soap scum buildup along the bottom and bottom of the shower curtain.

The bed, while charming to look at, was not easy for 2 since there is only one way to access the bed if the person on the inside had to get up it awakens the one on the outside because you have to crawl over them. It didn't seem like a big deal when booking but was when we acyhad to use it.

The a/c worked well but did not cool the bed area when 3-sides are mostly enclosed. We requested a fan and were told they didn't have one.

We liked having access to a washer/dryer and loved cooking with the gas stove. Location was great.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Room was clean, air conditioning was excellent. Neighborhood was easily accessible to the national mall by public transportation and walking. There is a whole foods market just down the street, so great food was close by. Bed and TV were a bit wonky, but I would stay again in a heartbeat.
