About This Listing
This lovely, cozy, spacious, and sunny studio is located in a very quiet part of Adams Morgan, tucked away in the green and hilly part of the neighborhood. It is very close to the National Zoo and running trails of Rock Creek Park, but only steps away from fun-filled 18th Street, featuring a broad variety of restaurants, bars and coffee shops.
There are several bus stops within 5 minutes walk that can take you to any part of DC. Also, you will be within walking distance of the Green/Yellow and Red line metro. For you serious hikers, the White House and downtown is only 45 minutes of pleasant walk through DC's historical neighborhoods!
The studio is spacious. There is one full size bed and medium size futon that is surprisingly comfortable for sleeping.
Amenities include: wireless internet, TV (no cable), full kitchen, bathroom with shower and bathtub.
The studio has hardwood floors throughout and is located on the 4th floor of a safe building. The neighbors are mostly young professionals and very quiet. The building itself is not the prettiest on the block, but the apartments are newly renovated, painted and overall extremely clean.
The garbage disposal is only two doors down the hall, and on-site laundry is located downstairs.
Sheets, towels, pots, pans, plates, etc., are included in rent.
Thank you for considering this listing. I can assure you, if you decide to stay here it will be one of the most pleasant months you will spend in DC!
Feel free to email with any questions.
I'm very easy going as long as you're acting within reason. If you have any doubts just talk to me and we can figure it out. However, I would prefer if there was no drugs or heavy partying on the premises. Also, there is no maid service so in order to keep costs down, please leave the studio in the condition you found it. If you would prefer, we can arrange a clean up service at your expense for after your departure.
Marija was a kind and flexible host. I needed a spot in DC on little notice, and she not only accepted my request, but she was really accommodating by meeting me at her place after my flight landed at 11:55 pm at night. Her studio looks exactly like the photos, and the location is perfect! Right near the restaurants in Mt. Pleasant and a short walk to the S1/S2/S4 bus lines. One small note: if you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs as you can hear the person walking above and some of the neighborhood noises outside. All in all, very safe walkable area, and friendly host!
I had a wonderful experience staying in Marija's studio! She was exceptionally accommodating, even when I arrived late at night and had to leave early in the morning. The apartment had everything I could have possibly needed. It is located on a quiet street in a very happening part of town and I found that I could walk pretty much anywhere I wanted to go in DC. I also had my car and discovered that street parking was more plentiful than I had anticipated.
I would love to stay here again!
I stayed at this apt for a month. The apt is very comfortable, bright and feels like home. The location is great, on a quiet street in Adams Morgan, walking distance to 16th St. Multiple nearby restaurants, coffee shops, CVS and Safeway are also walking distance. I was in DC for work and was commuting daily to Silver Spring. Marija was very kind to provide much needed high speed internet and a resident parking permit for the entire duration of my trip. I definitely recommend her apt to anyone looking for either a short or a long term stay.
Marija's studio lived up to expectations and was the perfect base for my stay. The studio is really spacious and very sunny. It is on a pleasant, quiet, green leafy street, yet only minutes walk from the lively areas of Mount Pleasant and 18th Street. It is easy to get into the centre of the city by bus, but it is actually a very nice walk if you have the time. Marija was a generous host in providing all that you would need for your stay - bed linen and towels, closet space, laundry credit, hairdryer, wifi, and in quickly responding to all my questions in advance. The kitchenette is small, but with so many great places to eat nearby you are not likely to need to use it much. The studio has AC which was a good thing on hot, sticky June days in DC. I would recommend this as a lovely place to stay - convenient for the city and at the same time a restful retreat, as well as being great value.
I had a pretty bad experience with Marija. I told her that her wifi was not working, but she would not come over and fix. She kept telling me to fix on my own. Guys, I paid her the rent to have a working apartment, but not learn how to fix her wifi. And on my last day there, her toilet broke down. I texted her to tell her the situation but she blamed me for that. Again, I found it ridiculous to pay her 800 dollars and had to fix everything in her apartment on my own. Also, if she charged me services fees, which she did, I would assume that she would take care of the dishes. I would suggest that you stay away from her and her petty apartment.
I have an SMS message to prove that I offered to come and fix WiFi to which I have never got a reply. My toilet never broke down before, and since more than 4 rolls of toilet papers were used in 4 days while Dilong was staying there, I think it's pretty clear what happened. I have been doing this for a while, and as you can see I have stellar reviews as I am very responsible and responsive to my guests. So, Dilong's dishonest review is just a way to hide the fact that he really messed up.
Marija made my stay very easy. She was kind, prompt & a good communicator. The flat met my needs and was in a very good location - an easy walk to Mt. Pleasant, 18th & Columbia, even DuPont. Neighborhood was great - there's a BikeShare at the top of 16th & Harvard that became my best friend!
About the Host, Marija
I'm TV news producer in my 30s and full time student. I moved to DC from Serbia more than 11 years ago. I travel for work quite a bit and as much as it sounds fancy, this job doesn't pay much, which brings me to why I'm here ...
