  • Good apartment for families!

    "This apartment worked out really well for us! We had the benefit of 2 queen beds in the same room (for families with young children who don't want to sleep in a different room), plus a small kitchen, and an extra room for my aunt who came with us. You do have to walk through the small bedroom (which also has the washer/dryer) to get to the bathroom, as other guests noted. Also, as per other reviews, we had problems with the washer/dryer taking forever (and we wished there had been better instructions), problems finding the keys to adjust the thermostat (which is in the hall), and some minor problems getting our questions answered from the person who helps with the apartment (it would have been nice to have received the wifi info over email, since the book with that info had been removed and placed on the first floor in the hallway - which we didn't discover until day 2). Other than those minor issues, the kitchen worked out great for a breakfast of eggs and/or cereal each day before we left, the proximity to a grocery store was a big plus (and cute restaurants right near by that we are sad we didn't get to visit). The neighborhood felt very safe - lots of people walking around. We did rent a car, which worked out well for us, though parking late at night was sometimes a challenge since you have to find a spot. (The permit, which you must arrange with the property manager and pay $20 for, only allows you to park in the neighborhood... there is no guaranteed spot.) It took us 20 min. to drive to the mall - and parking there was around $20 for the day. It gave us extra flexibility and worked out well for us since we were a group of 5. I would recommend this apartment, and I would stay there again. You can also talk to Lois about paying through paypal to avoid vrbo's new annoying fees - which I really appreciated."

  • Great for a quick trip to DC

    "We had a great stay. My husband and I were visiting the DC area for a short vacation. The apartment was located fairly close to the subway. We also enjoyed the convince of multiple restaurants, a grocery store, and Target. The building was quiet. While the space was small it had plenty of natural light due to all the windows. Due to the size would only recommend for a single person or a couple. Would definitely consider staying here again."

  • Perfect for our cozy family of three!

    "Being close to the metro we were able to park our car during our entire stay! Loved that! Rachel was great about responding to any questions we had. Arrival was flawless. The property was as stated on the listing and was perfect for us to make our own meals, kick back after a long day of seeing the sights and get a good night's sleep to do it all again! As others have reviewed, we too walked back from the metro later in the evening and felt safe doing so. Should we make it back to D.C. we are glad to know there is a place that meets our needs without completely breaking the bank!"

  • AS ADVERTISED

    "as advertised but wifi gets extremely slow in the evening. it took me a couple of days to realize the AC was not working, but it was promptly fixed (broken thermostat) after i reported problem. columbia heights culture is a bit more intense than i am used to. crowded sidewalks and shopping, loud sirens almost every hour, "locals" yelling at each other, etc."
