Rachel and Matt,

We enjoyed our stay at your place. It was in a very convenient location, and very quiet. We slept well, and there was plenty of room for all four of us. The parking spot worked out so well.

Thanks so much,

Perfect for our cozy family of three!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect for a family of 4 !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 kids ages 10 and 13. It was perfect for us! It had everything we needed and was so close to the metro. We liked being able to cook dinner each night and save money on eating out! The only thing I looked for that wasn't there was a baking dish- but even that wasn't a big deal at all! The bedroom is big with plenty of space. My daughter loved the little den area with the futon and my son begged for the pull out couch since he wanted to watch TV all night !! The owners were super easy to work with! Thank you and if we come back to DC we will stay here again!

Lovely and cozy place!

This condo is the perfect getaway for busy folks wanting a calm trip to DC. My friend and I are musicians and had a concert at the convention center. This was a perfect location and we felt super safe walking from the Metro (6 min walk) to the condo. Many nights we didn't return until around midnight! The locals are great. Rachel and her family thought of everything from leaving us a map of the area to grocery store discount card to books available on places to visit. She was very helpful when I emailed questions and always giving suggestions. Why stay in a hotel when you can feel at home in a neighborhood and make your own meals? I will definitely keep her condo in mind when I return! Thank you so much for a great vacation home!!

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent a week here in July and absolutely loved it! The neighborhood is diverse, safe and cute! The metro station is VERY close by as well as restaurants/cafe's a CVS, target ( we took car) and grocery store! The ride into the monuments couldn't have been more than 10-15 mins ( the metro here is so darn efficient!!! We're from Boston so we're used to the T being a pain haha) The place itself is so cozy and sweet! It has everything you could possibly need and more- it is HOt and muggy in July so the AC and dehumidifier were a lifesaver after a long hot day! Rachel was an absolute pleasure to work with and from day one she went above and beyond !! My boyfriend and I have already decided that we will be back to DC and this is where we will stay again- I highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a wonderful fruitful experience in Dc!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place to stay while in the Washington area. The apartment was comfortable and had everything one may need. Subway station is a short couple blocks away and owner Rachel was kind and helpful. The ceiling is a bit low but I managed just fine and I measure 6'5". We would recommend this place to friends. Thank you again Rachel.

We really enjoyed staying at this cosy place with our two kids (5 and 7). Although we did not meet Rachel, she made us feel extremely welcome and was quite attentive to making sure we had everything we needed. The appartment was exactly as described, clean and ready for our arrival. Added bonus of finding lots of guides and tourist information! We really liked the neighborhood and its diverse community. There was a great playground just across the street where our kids could play and meet other kids. Very convenient to have a big safeway less than 10 minutes walking distance. We often took the bus to go downtown. Both metro and bus stops are equally nearby. So all and all very happy with where we chose to "live" for our time in Washington. Would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Merci! We are sorry we did not get the chance to meet you in person, but THANKS so much for choosing to stay with us and for the positive feedback. We certainly do hope you visit us again and we'll let you know whenever we get a chance to visit your lovely country. I have been there just once and would love to return someday. Thank you again.
