We really enjoyed our stay but the apartment is better suited to 4 rather than 6 people and the living room furniture is not very comfortable. The beds were comfortable

Great location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect to be close to all the attractions one would want to see in DC. We loved the neighborhood and checking out all of the nearby restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery markets. The upstairs neighbors are pretty noisy, especially in the morning. It sounds like they get on to some type of rhythmic exercise machine that rolls across the floor and is really loud. The home is impeccably decorated yet functional and comfortable. Would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Great location, clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. It is clean and very convenient to the Capitol, local restaurants and small grocery stores. We did not use the kitchen much, but it was fully equipped. As many reviewers have stated, there is one bed that is very firm and the other that is very soft. We were the first to use the inflatable mattress and that worked out well for us.

Our only complaints were 1) only having Amazon Prime (which was even very limited due to apparent parental controls?) in the bedrooms, so we felt like we only had one TV for all of us when we came back to rest for a couple of hours between activities. 2) We were not able to get the dishwasher to lock and run and it was apparent that this was the case for the people who stayed before us. When reported to the property manager we were told that we weren't closing the dishwasher properly, which could have been the case, but with two of us trying, we were not successful. 3) There was a good bit of "foot traffic" above us since this is a basement apartment, but I think that is to be expected.

Overall, I would recommend this property.

Great place & Location - Communication lacking

  • 3 of 5

Great location in Capital Hill just 3 blocks to the Capital! Convenient market, Congress Market, for all of your incidentals including beer and wine. Old fashioned breakfast restaurant, Jimmy T.'s on the corner. Very Comfortable beds and accommodations. It is a basement apartment so naturally cool. Upstairs apartment is also a rental so expect some noise. The covered patio off the second bedroom is not usable, narrow and littered with debris and trash it is more a storage area. It is a convenient, comfortable place to stay while visiting Washington.

The reason I gave it 3 stars is total lack of communication with Cliff. A week before we were supposed to get information on how to access the lockbox and we did not receive the information until the morning we arrived. Cliff never responded to messages, emails or texts from the time I started contacting him in the beginning of May. I had also emailed him in early May about how to get to the apartment from the airport and any suggestions for our stay. I had to call VRBO on the day before I arrived to see if they had a lock box code for the door and they were not able to reach him either. The emails I did received from Cliff were auto emails and went unanswered. We did have an issue with checkout time. On VRBO check out is 11:00 am and on an auto email he sent a week before our stay the time is listed as 10:00 am. When I questioned the check out time in a response to the auto email he never responded. We were not ready to check out when the cleaning crew arrived. There was another person listed as a contact in the email with a New Jersey phone number and he did not respond to any contact either. The cleaning crew arrived at 10:30 am and they indicated checkout has always been 10:00 am.

Overall the apartment was a great location and very comfortable. The patio was a disappointment. I am glad we did not encounter a serious problem because Cliff never responded to any of our attempts to contact him.

Great find on Capitol Hill

  • 4 of 5

2 bedrooms 2 baths spacious living area, kitchen and w/d. Perfect for week or longer stay. Well appointed, we found everything we needed. It is a basement apt with little daylight and some overhead noise from upstairs residents. Walking distance to the great Eastern Market. Not close to Metro but we used Uber for everything never waited more than a couple of minutes.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so convenient. The neighborhood is beautiful and very walkable. I was traveling with my husband and two small children (both under 3). This neighborhood is very family friendly. There is a small park with a playground a few blocks north of the place where neighborhood families gather. Everyone was very friendly. The place itself is very comfortable (one soft bed, and one harder bed). The sheets and bedding were very nice. The place is clean and the manager is responsive. We would definitely stay here again!
