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!!!)

Just the right size house for 2 families of 5, conveniently located, and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Trying to find a home that could comfortably accomodate 2 families of 5 for a week and was conveniently located close to the Metro for daily sightseeing of the capital was no easy task, but we were fortunate to find this well appointed home which fit the bill perfectly! This home was very well equipped with everything we needed including board games for the kids! It is a very comfortable home with plenty space to relax and socialize and has great character as well. A quick shuttle ride from the airport, groceries delivered to our door from Safeway, and a short walk to the Metro station each day made our sightseeing experience convenient and enjoyable. It was a great place to come home to and relax at the end of a long day on the town. Thanks to Sherman for answering all our questions promptly and assuring we had a wonderful stay in D.C.

Nice house within walking distance of the national mall

  • 4 of 5

This house fit the six of us well for the 7 days we were there. We actually did walk to/from the mall several times. We also used uber for days when there was going to be a lot of walking at our destination. The house is clean and quiet. We would use it again if we were going back and needed accommodations for a couple of families. Off street parking was handy for the two days we rented a vehicle to travel to Mt. Vernon and Monticello. The neighborhood is overall in good shape and seems to be in a transition stage of improving itself. Any questions about the house while we were there were answered promptly and clearly by Mr. King via text.

A great location with easy access to all of D.C.'s attractions.

  • 4 of 5

Our initial impression of the property at 40 Bates Street NW was less than favorable primarily because of the condition of some of the buildings in the neighborhood and the extremely trashy conditions of the alleyway leading to the rear parking. However, we were happy to see that the property inside was well maintained, very clean, and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay - even umbrellas, which we really needed for several days of our stay. There were only a few minor issues that could have made our stay more enjoyable - the bed and pillows in the middle bedroom were not at all comfortable, the lighting in the kitchen was very dim, making food preparations and clean-up less than optimal, and another footstool in the living room would make it a bit more comfortable. Our group consisted of six adults and even though we had a vehicle, we found it easier and less expensive to use Uber for our daily trips to most areas in D.C. - usually a short ride of 2.5 miles or less. We were there for two weeks and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great location and a overall nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: The neighbors place objects in the alley for bulk pick-up during Spring cleaning. ALL the pillows are BRAND new; we'll check the bed. The kitchen has a dimmer; it was just turned down. Most importantly, we're glad to hear you found the home a "nice play to stay". Thanks for your recommendation.
