"Visiting Washington D.C. with the family and this spot was great for us! Very open floor plan and plenty of space for our group. Kitchen was a nice size and the island made making and serving meals a breeze. Safeway and Walmart also located nearby and a Whole Foods not too far. There was a lot of cookware so we didn't have to bring or purchase anything, the only thing would be if there were more plastic utensils for a mostly non-stick cookware set it would've made cooking a bit easier. Used the charcoal grill once, had to clean, but worked perfectly well.
The living room was comfortable, we mostly were at the house in the morning and later in the evening as we tried to take in all the sights we could! During our visit we used (and I would HIGHLY recommend) citysightsDC Double Decker bus tours. Took the night tour which was awesome and then we used the buses the next couple days to hop on and off at all the places we wanted to see (including a boat tour - if you go on the boat tour check out the harbor for great seafood). I think worth the money for the guided tour and convenience - we wouldn't have been able to see all we did without it!
The listing said there were two sets of washers and dryers though we only found one set, which was in the basement. The set up was sort of inconvenient to use due to the dryer's heat exhaust set up and it being July/August, but did work when we used it. Bathrooms are all a nice size, had an issue with a leaky ceiling but the owner was quick to get back to us and we didn't have any major issues - hot water for everyone which was very nice for sore walking muscles and impressive water pressure.
The beds were all comfortable and we had plenty of space, i would say it would get a little cramped if you had more than 10, then again - it could be viewed as bonding : ) The only thing that was a little disappointing was upon arrival and for the first few, hottest, days the air conditioner did not cool the house very well. When we arrived the air was off so the house was very hot and humid which made lugging our luggage in kind of a chore, and coming home to a luke warm house after being out in the super hot sun all day was kind of a drag. But later in our stay, when the weather chilled a little, the air conditioner perked up and it was fine.
I would recommend this location for its comfort and convenience - close to stores and the downtown area. Lots of street parking if you drive."
