Very comfortable home; clean, well-maintained and decorated home.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable, well furnished. The outside neighborhood needs some love and care. A neighborhood clean-up/trash collection would be great. Hopefully, someone will buy the vacant houses on the block and renovate them

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive 4-star review. We're happy to hear you found the house comfortable & well furnished. Street cleaning takes place twice per week, hence the parking restrictions, to allow the sweeper to pass thru. Trash collection also happens twice a week. I'm only aware of (2) vacant houses on the block and both recently sold for $550K+ and both are CURRENTLY being renovated.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! There were 10 of us in town for a wedding and needed a place to stay. The location was great and there was more than enough space for all of us. The block we were on was the cutest and we never felt unsafe. We were arriving early so they let us check in as early as we needed, and the same for checking out a few days later. When we arrived, the city had accidentally turned the gas off in the house (they were supposed to turn off the neighbor’s). Sherman was very helpful and quick with getting it turned back on. Thank you for adding to an amazing first experience in D.C.!!

Great house in an up and coming neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

When we pulled up to the house I was a little nervous looking at the neighborhood. Not to mention, a police car was on the street and the officer told us to take everything inside the house or it would be stolen. A little disappointed that the electric gate did not come down in the back, but informed by Sherman that it didn't work. It was much all much ado about nothing. Cars were fine all week. Neighbors were friendly. Nice easy walk to metro. House is beautiful inside as pictured. We were a group of 10 (4 adults, 6 kids) and fit comfortably into the house. We would recommend buying a good set of knives for the house. We did a lot of cooking and a good knife was the only thing lacking. We didn't see Sherman while we were there, but it was the week of the Fourth. He didn't answer the phone when we called, but he did return the calls in a timely manner. Overall good stay and I would recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear "it was much ado about nothing", and you found the home beautiful and the neighbors friendly. We do not advertise the electric gate in the rear because maintenance is a nightmare. We'll buy more basic knives as quality knives keep disappearing. Sorry you didn't get to meet Sherman, he was probably busy with his other properties during the holiday weekend. An overall good stay & a recommendation to friends is what we like to hear!

Great for a group

  • 4 of 5

House is exactly as advertised. We were a group of 5 adults, plenty of room, parking was a good bonus as we had a car. There were problems with the A/C, but Sherman couldn't have been more accommodating, even offered to move us to hotel. A bit of a walk to Mall and Union Station, especially in the heat.

Owner's Response: GOOD NEWS: The A/C unit (condenser) has been replaced! We hope your partial refund was more convenient than a move to a hotel. Thanks for confirming the house is exactly as advertised.

Great property.

  • 5 of 5

With our daughter and grand children we toured DC for a week. This is a great location for the price point and the apartment was well appointed and clean. If you feel like walking, the Capital building and other sites are less than a mile away. If you want to ride, the metro is just a few blocks away. There is a new Harris Teeter grocery store just a few blocks away if you want to eat-in as we did. And Sherman King is a great host as he provided us everything we needed that was not already in place. We had a wonderful week. (if you plan to tour DC, bring your walking shoes!!!)
