Wonderful house in a wonderful neighborhood
The house was not perfect but it is in good shape for rental property. When we first arrived the air conditioning was not working but Tonde was very responsive and brought us a window unit to use until the technician could get there. The conditioning was fixed ASAP. There was plenty of room for the 10 of us in the house and the neighborhood was very safe, we never felt uncomfortable walking around. I would definitely stay here again if we come back to DC!
The worst experience imaginable.
To say this was a bad experience does an injustice to the word bad. We arrived at the house at 4:00 pm on Saturday and there were people going in and out. We walked up and said that we had the place rented for the next few days. They said we rented it on a different site for the weekend. The host had obviously double-booked it. Here we were with 8 people in DC at 4 pm on Saturday evening and no place to stay. It was a miracle that we found another place although it was smaller and only slept 7. We got in touch with Tunde and his excuse was that he was in Europe and he had it on both VRBO and the other site and his agent must not have caught it. No apology. He should not be allowed to list on the site!
I traveled to Europe a week before the guest check in date for a family emergency. My brother managed my properties while I was away. He mistakingly booked another group into the house instead of another house. He was confused with 2 different addresses. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience created, I can imagine what they might have gone through. I am very sorry. This is my 5th year running the business, this had never happened and it will never happen again.
Great Time and Stay in DC
The overall condition of the property was good. There are a few upgrades that need to happen before I can make this a five star. The rooms and general living areas were spacious for our group. There were 5 adults and 4 kids (age range 9 yrs. to 16 yrs.) in the group. The kids really liked that they had they own space downstairs. The kitchen area was nice and had dishes and utensils for us to use. We could all eat together, if we wanted to. The recommended upgrades would be to purchase a new bed for the middle bedroom upstairs, the bed has a dip in the middle. Add better bedding for the beds and additional bedding for the pull out bed. Needs general maintenance, i.e. paint, clean vents, scrub floors) needs TLC. Also, there were a few small ants even though we did light cleaning each day.
Once we figured out the bus and rail system, it was easy to get around and transportation to the bus stop via rail was a 10 minute walk. The location was great. We were out late a few days at night had not problems. The neighborhood is safe.
Tunde was helpful and attentive to our needs. I gave him feedback on all I shared in this review. He was very nice and brought extra bedding within hours of us calling. The family vacation was a hit. Everyone was satisfied and my son didn't want to leave the house because he liked it so much. If I vacation in DC again, I would stay here. Thanks!
The pictures do not accurately reflect the condition of the property. The walls are beat up and need to be repainted and the decor is subpar. We had a bad fly infestation in the downstairs area as well. Granted we didn't contact the owner until our last night but when we did, he was rude and abrupt. He thought we left the downstairs door open when in fact, that door was never opened and the flies were there at check-in. The linens and towels are old & worn and need to be replaced. The place has the feel of just not being clean. In fact, the kitchen trash can was full when we arrived. Although it was nice to have parking in the back, it's on a steep incline with not much space to maneuver and it made parking rather challenging. I would not stay there again nor would I refer anyone to this property.
Fabulous property. Great location. Neighborhood good.
The home is beautiful. It has been renovated but still has the character one expects of a 1920's -ish row home.
It does have two separate living spaces and two kitchens. The bedrooms are on the third floor and first floor.
There is a bus stop within two blocks and grocery stores and gas stations with in a half mile.
Eight of us stayed here very comfortably. There was enough room for all of us to share meals and also have our own space.
Somethings that will make the stay better:
This is an older home with an addition. It does have central air, but there are 3 floors.
The Master Suite on the third floor. The Master bath has a wonderful open air vent. This allows for the scents of the seasons to permeate the master suite. The fresh rain was glorious. However, we found the central air did work more efficiently if we kept the door to the master bath shut.
This house is wonderful, but in the hottest months may require a little common sense to maximize the AC.
The owner was attentive and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better host.
Thank you so much for making the trip great!! It was a huge relief to have the home to come back to after roaming around playing tourist all day.
We had 9 people, 2 children and 7 adults. We arrived and the place was clean and had food in the cabinet that was left for anyone. There is 5 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bath that are very spacious. The upstairs washer and dryer doesn't work but downstairs does. Needs a little work but otherwise beautiful house. I love the neighborhood and neighbors. Very friendly and safe with lots of transportation options. There are two grocery stores near by. We had a few issues with the drains but found it was only clogged. Loved our stay and would come back.
We located at 0.8 miles from Georgia Ave/Petworth Metro station (Green/yellow lines) or Fort Totten Metro 0.5 miles (Red green, yellow lines)
Bus stop is less than 1 minute from the house.
