  • Diego was a great host and gave us a very detailed walk-through of the place immediately upon our arrival. Communication was prompt any time we had a question or concern. The condo was great for our group of 5 touring DC. Everything you could possibly need is provided including utensils and pans which we were able to use to have good home-cooked breakfasts before heading out to see the sights of DC each day. Having a 24hr Harris Teeter next door was convenient. The unit was very clean and quiet and having a washer/dryer in the unit was an added bonus. I would certainly recommend this place as an alternative to DC's hotels.

  • Estupendo lugar, a pesar de no ser tan grande nos acomodamos siete sin ningún problema. Un edificio con todas las comodidades a minutos en carro del centro de interes.

  • This is a great place. Diego offers a one bedroom apartment outside of DC that easily takes 4 people, two on a queen bed, two on air mattresses. Guests can use the pool and the common room with a pool table, both on the same floor. A 24h fully equipped shop is right across the street. There is a bus connection in front of the house, or one can walk (15-20min) to the nearest subway station. If the weather allows, I recommend the walk. On top, there is free parking, which is really great. The apartment itself is very clean, but lacks personal charm (I do not remember a single picture on the wall, nor a plant). It has everything else you need; coffee, soap, towels, linen, iron, cable, wireless, a balcony. The host, Diego, is extremely helpful and concerned with his guests' well being. Overall, a place very much recommendable, especially for what you pay for.

  • I was absolutely thrilled with the accommodations! We were right at the shuttle stop, grocery store across the street, pizza across the street, easy access to everything in DC. I was a little leery at only 703 square feet with my family of 6, but it was perfect! We had plenty of room, and all 4 kids had their own beds, while my husband and I got the bedroom to ourselves:) I loved the condo and would totally recommend it. Diego was great and everything was ready for us when were arrived. We even got lost and he came and got us! Couldn't have been a better experience.

  • Diego's place is amazing. It's super clean and new. It's convenient located next to a 24 hours grocery store and to the bus stop, which takes you to the subway; and it's only 10 minutes by taxi to D.C.
    Diego was all the time making sure we were having a nice stay, guiding us, and answering all our questions. Even though we couldn't meet him, he asked a friend to show us the place. I would definitely stay here again.

    May 2014
  • Diego was a great host. He had the room all set up for two guests in two different parts of the condo, along with all the appliances that you could think of to make the stay pleasant. The location was perfect for my needs, which included a Metro bus stop right outside the building's door that came by every 12 minutes and took the passengers to a nearby Metro Station. That station serves all of Washington DC and traveling was a snap. On our last day, Diego even allowed my daughter and I to store our luggage in his storage locker until our flights left AND even drove us to the airport so we didn't have to hail a cab.

  • We selected this apartment for a short trip in Washington DC. Diego is a really great person who provide a lot of information and useful instruction for me and my friends to travel in Washington DC. Apartment is convenient to reach. The room is good and can provide much room for the six of us. We have had a nice day there.

  • The apartment is in a nice building in a nice part of town. It is about a
    mile from the Crystal City Metro station, and there is a bus stop right
    downstairs. The bus only runs until 7:30pm though, so if you come back
    later than that, you have to catch a cab. This wasn't hard to do, and the
    fare was about $9 including tip. Not terrible at all.

    Diego and Rebecca were very attentive and they did provide extra air
    mattresses, which was nice. The Harris Teeter across the street was very
    convenient.

    In summary: Overall it was a decent place to stay. It was much cheaper than a hotel would have cost. I don't miss the TV because a) I didn't go to DC to watch TV and b) I don't watch much TV at home anyway. If you do, be aware. The bigger issue was the lack of cooking equipment. That meant I had to spend more on food than I wanted to, but overall it was still worth it. I'd probably rent there again.

    Diego and Rebecca seemed very attentive to our needs, and I am sure they will correct the minor issues mentioned here. If so, I would definitely recommend staying here for anyone visiting the DC area.

  • Diego answered all my questions prior to our stay. The condo was great for our family trip to DC. Located right down the road from all the major hotel chains and very easy drive to the the DC sights. Metro bus picked up right outside our building and the metro station was a short distance down the road. Having a 24hr Harris Teeter just next door was very convenient. The unit was very clean and quiet. Diego provided us additional beds for my family of 5. Kitchen had all the necessities and allowed us to prepare our breakfast and evening snacks for the kids.Parking was not a problem and the washer/dryer in the unit was convenient.

    April 2014
  • We really enjoyed our stay in Diego's appartment. Although we arrived an hour later than agreed Diego waited for us, showed us the appartment and explained the most important things. It's no problem to go to the center of Washington
    by bus and metro.
