"We were very happy with the rental and the reviews were accurate as to issues encountered. The location was great! Grocery, laundry and restaurants within two blocks. The metro was also very close along with a drug store and many places to grab a beer or glass of wine. A few items would make the stay a little better, light switch in upstairs hallway was on the other tenants side and was often turned on and off at unwanted times of the morning or late evening: a sign letting other tenants know about switch would be an easy fix. The door at top of stairs locked from the outside and we accidentally locked our children upstairs and they panicked in the early morning when trying to come downstairs, this could also be a very dangerous fire hazard. The washer/dryer combination took a very long time to dry and was hard to understand, a note explaining how to use would be helpful, we did all laundry at a laundry mat one block away, this was easier than waiting for the one in apartment to dry and open. The door into the unit opens into the master bedroom, this was not a big deal because we were just there for breakfast and sleeping, the only thing is this being the entry door for the apartment(not the building, which was very secure) the door was an interior door and did not feel secure. if the upstairs tenants did not lock the front two doors, which happened on two occasions, a stronger door or a second lock on the inside would be better. Parking was not an issue, we often found parking within a block of the apartment and the parking permit came within one day of arriving. It would have been nice to be told about Tuesday being a day our car could not be left on the street for cleaning. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen was very nicely equipped to cook meals. Overall, I would seek out this apartment again if I was visiting DC in the future. One more thing, the air conditioner kept the apartment very cool, this was very nice when walking in 95 degrees all day. Check out the pizza place two blocks from the rental. I would totally tell friends and family to use this rental. Property was kept clean and well maintained. Thanks for the great stay!"
