Reviewer Comments:

The Palisades is a lovely area of D.C. They did extensive work on the house while we were there. Wet paint on the doors and rails and ladders outside our apartment .. They should have alerted us to this work and quite honestly we would not have taken this rental. Host was very nice and helpful upon our arrival There is a musty odor in the apartment and we did lose our air conditioning afew days before we left..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback on our Palisades property. We depend on guest comments to improve our properties and service. We’ve shared your observations with the housekeeping crew and discussed the issues with their Lead. We also discussed the odor with the home owner, as this is unacceptable as a LUXbnb property. These concerns have been addressed. As we mentioned in your AirBnb review, we hope to have the opportunity to host you again in a different property. If you can return this winter for a holiday getaway, please use the code WINTER20 for 20% off our already low winter rates. We do sincerely apologize for the painting on the home while you were our guest. Thank you, Charlotte, Owner @LUXbnb

Reviewer Comments:

We had a good time in Washington /Palisades Plush. The apartment was well equipped an maintained. The Management / support was very good (thanks to Matthias and Kevin!). The apartment is just a few steps away from the bus station - perfect for getting into town. Unfortunately the air condition was a bit noisy, we had to turn it off during nighttime.

Unfortunately, it didn't work out. The water heater malfunctioned and would only produce cold water. We had to make other plans. Re: question below: We'd recommend it if the water heater is replaced

Loved our stay! Great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this property for 5 weeks while she danced at the Washington Ballet. I can't say enough good things about the property owner, Matthias. He helped us feel at home and when the refrigerator and dishwasher both were not working properly when we first arrived, he replaced them very quickly for us. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. When we come back to DC this is where we will stay.
