Fabulous place to stay!
If you don’t mind being up four flights of stairs, this is a wonderful accommodation. The queen bed was so comfy, I slept like a baby! The shower had a great flow and was easy to control. I appreciated the AC during the 80 degree days. The location allows for easy walking. Best of all, there was a lovely little cat to greet me each day as I left the flat. The owner is friendly, helpful, and warm, and I feel as though I have made a new friend!
Great location, comfortable apartment.
I enjoyed my brief, 2-night stay in the apartment. It's on a quiet street very close to George Washington University. Good for tourists and for business visitors who want to avoid hotels (or when hotel selections are limited). Comfortable and spacious apartment, including full kitchen. Convenient to supermarkets (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's) and to restaurants.
Very nice clean and comfortable
This flat was in a perfect location and very easy to manage getting in and out of. We loved it and would stay again!
Great space, even better location.
Very easy access. We arrived late in the evening. Can't beat the location. We were able to walk easily to most everywhere in DC that you want to visit. The National Mall was only 15-20min away. Less than 2 bolcks to Shareride bikes, DC Metro, or Trader Joe's. We were very comfortable when in the apartment. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting DC. Perfect for our family of 3. I highly recommend!
Apartment was large, clean and well located. Sally responded quickly when contacted.
Unfortunately had problems with blocked toilet for 3 out of 6 nights.
One sofa bed quite uncomfortable and the other had to keep retying the shoelace holding the springs in place at foot of bed.
Convenient to have a metro stop and Trader Joe's just a 5 min walk away.
We are located in a residential enclave in downtown Washington DC. Perfect for sightseeing or business trips to the World Bank, IMF, GW University, State Department, embassies and US Institute of Peace. Our guests often bike or walk to Washington Harbor, Rock Creek Park, the Washington Mall, C&O Canal. All of the Smithsonian Museums are easily accessible by Metro or Circulator Bus, and the Textile Museum and Washingtonia Museum just a 10 minute walk. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a 14 minute walk (buses also available).
Because this house is in a quiet neighborhood we ask guests to refrain from loud music after 10pm.
