Property was a little beat up, but clean.

  • 4 of 5

Location was great. Easy access to everything. Safe building, quiet. We were happy there. Some drawbacks: dryer takes 4 tries to dry a simple load of clothes. This becomes an issue when trying to make 6 towels last a week for 2 people.

There were no kitchen towels or dishcloths.

The hairdryer was inoperable.

No heat or a/c controls in unit (appeared to be controlled in a different part of the building, maybe?). We were comfortable, but that may have just been luck - we had perfect weather while we were there.

None of these were deal-killers for us. We’d stay there again, but maybe bring more towels. :)

On the positive side, the owner/management were very responsive to requests for help (there was a water issue when we arrived due to heavy rains, and they were there in minutes to take care of it). They seem pretty committed to making sure you’re happy.

The biggest problem for us was the lack of parking. If you’re flying in, it shouldn’t be much of an issue. But we drove 2 days to get there and had a carful of stuff to unload. Then reload at the end. That was tricky with literally no place to park. The parking garage is only 2 blocks away, but that’s a haul for two people and all their junk. Btw, the parking rate is currently $15/night, so factor that in to your nightly rate if you drive.

If we stay here again, we will plan a bit differently, but the location is so good, and the ownership as well, that there’s a good chance we’ll be back.

It met our needs well

  • 4 of 5

Despite getting the wrong code to the lock box containing the key, we eventually got in. Make sure you have a contact number. If you know there will be guests in the upstairs, then hearing them isn't an issue. We were short on regular sized silverware, but left a note for them. If you aren't careful while showering, water will flow out to the hallway. We adjusted. It was great to have free WiFi, washer and dryer, full kitchen. We chose this house based on its proximity to the metro and grocery stores. We had the space we needed and didn't step over each other as we would have in a hotel room. It wasn't perfect, but neither is our own home!

Great management of this property. We've stayed in this building before. This is the 1st time we stayed in the lower level. Only downside is you can hear every footstep above you. Quiet part of the street. Pictures accurately reflect this condo.

So,so

  • 3 of 5

For the most part, this rental was good. It was a short Uber or metro ride to anywhere in DC. It was a short walk to grocery, target and coffee shops. It was clean and kitchen was fully stocked with any cookware you might need. The biggest problem was that there was no control for the AC and no vents in the bedrooms, so airflow was limited if you kept the doors closed at night.

Comfortable Place

  • 3 of 5

We were a three-generation family of five who used VRBO for the first time ever. This location was easy to find in the city and it was all the description said it would be, from stores within a two-block walk to the Metro station just a scant three-block walk. Parking with the provided pass was easy enough to find on the street. Inside, the space is much less than the advertised "nearly 2,000 sq.ft." but adequate for our needs. Beds were comfortable and exactly as pictured. A daybed in the living room provided a needed 5th sleeping place. There were enough sheets and towels, tho no dishtowels. We were happy to find a stacked washer and dryer in the kitchen. The bouquet of red roses were a nice welcome. A previous reviewer complained that the toilet did not always flush, but that has either been repaired or we knew how to operate the water efficient toilet. A sign in the kitchen asked us to only use one appliance at a time which we followed and had no electrical outages. About our only discomfort was the lack of teaspoons in the flatware set, which had soup and serving spoons instead, a very minor complaint. Well, that and the lack of a strong wi-fi signal. Overall, with all things being equal in another time, I would choose this address again.

Map

Car: not necessary

Local farmers from nearby Maryland and Virginia bring freshly grown fruits and vegetables to the town square each weekend and sell their wares. This townsquare is a five minute walk around the corner from the home.

The Supermarket is also across the street from this home and has hours from 6am-11pm for guests to collect groceries to cook in this vacation home. There are also bike rentals in front of the Supermarket. There are loads of chain restaurants, as well as boutique restaurants along the commercial strip for guests to choose from when one does not feel up to cooking. Loads of stores like Best Buys, Target, Marshalls, Radio Shack, Models Sporting Goods, and many other stores for shopping convenience. METRO also beside the 24-Hour CVS Pharmacy.
