Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Karen and Aric definately go above and beyond to make you feel at home. Their condo was beautifully decorated, very clean, and well stocked with everything we needed . . . literally. Raining outside? No problem because they provided umbrellas. Need a fan for white noice in order to sleep? No problem because there was a fan. And the beds were very, very comfortable. Need coffee in the morning? No problem. There was not the obligatory one or single serving supply of prepackaged coffee such as you normally get at a hotel; but instead, Karen and Aric provided a full supply of Kcup coffees and teas for the Keurig coffee maker along with organic sugar. After full days of site seeing excursions it was so nice to be able to come back to their relaxing home where we could sit on the balcony, watch tv, read, etc. Much, much better than a hotel. It was very quiet and peaceful. This was by far the best money we've ever spent for accommodations. Karen and Aeric have set the bar high. We highly recommend their VRBO and will definately stay there again on our next trip to DC.

Enjoyed our recent visit to DC so much! The best thing was having this great condo to come back to every afternoon/evening! Everything about our condo was just perfect...better than a home away from home. The living space was just perfect for sitting and talking with life long friends at the end of a busy day. The beds were cozy and we each had a good night's rest after long and busy days!

They say location is everything...The Essex is a few short steps to the Metrobus and a quick ride to the Van Ness Metrorail. We loved riding the Metro...I think most of the riders thought we were crazy...too bad they were headed to work and we were having such FUN! Note to Seniors...get a Senior Smartrip card...saves you half on the bus and rail!

We have so many places we want to visit; but if we ever are lucky enough to visit DC again...we will want to stay in Karen and Aric's condo! They are wonderful hosts! Thank you so much to Aric for meeting us when we arrived and for answering several texts right away when we had a question! Thank you so much Karen for accommodating us the week we wanted to stay!

The location is excellent since it is walking distance to a few restaurants, grocery store, CVS, and metro (red line). Property has everything you need while on vacation. Very clean and well done.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We went for our daughter's college graduation and we loved it!

Location was perfect and absolutely loved the decoration. All decor and amenities were top of the line. Very secure area. Everything you can think of is a short walk away. Karen and Aric always responded very quickly. My only recommendation is to provide darker shades in the bedrooms because the early morning light would shine in bright and early. With that being said, I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to come back in the near future!

Thank you,

Christina and Francisco
