About this listing
Beautiful house on a lovely quiet street. Entire apartment with full kitchen, bar area, full bath, bedroom with closet and a laundry room. WIFI, large HD television, stainless kitchen appliances. Minutes from the red hot 14th street restaurant and bar scene.
This is the ground floor apartment of a 3 story row house. My wife, Agneta, and I live on the top 2 floors. The unit has a separate entrance (Carriage Door) so it is completely private.
Believe everything you read about this area. This is the hottest neighborhood in DC!
Just a few paces away from some of DC's most popular new restaurants - Le Diplomate, Pearl Dive and Estadio to name a few. Two blocks from CVS, Whole Foods or Safeway grocery stores.
Twenty minute walk to the White House. 10 minute walk to Dupont Circle Metro (Red Line) and U Street Metro (Green and Yellow line). Note that the Yellow Line runs to Reagan National Airport.
There are several Bike Share locations within a 2 to 3 block radius of the house. You can pick up a bike and ride to your destination and park it at another Bike Share location. There are hundreds all over the city.
No smoking please. No animals. Feel free to use the cookware and dishes in the kitchen. Read the books, check out the coffee table books. Please leave things as you found them :)
As a courtesy to my neighbors, please keep the noise down after 10pm.
Please wash dishes that have been used. Also- please adhere to the check out time. We have allowed for cleaning and maintenance between guests so be fair to the people following after you.
Rob and Agneta's place is really lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable!
We had all the necessary equipments and beds were really comfy.
It's really well located, in a quiet neighbourhood and not far from the places to visit.
We didn't met them but all our email conversations were really pleasant.
We strongly recommend their place!
Perfect apartment. It is exactly like the photos. It is well equipped, clean and spacious. The location of the apartment is amazing. It is a 5 minute walk from some really great restaurants and bars and is also a short walk from the White House and the other tourist points of interest. Rob and Agneta were really great too. We asked about dropping off our bags before check in and they arranged this for us no problem. They also made sure to ask how we were getting on and if we needed anything during our stay. Couldn't ask for a nicer Airbnb experience!
Before we arrived, the contact with Rob and Agneta was very good. They responded to e-mails within minutes, arranged everything for us and gave us practical tips on how to arrive, what to expect and so on. One of the best things that they have is the electronic doorlock. You can choose your own code so you can arrive and access the apartment any time you like, plus there's never a need to worry about losing your keys, or, if you're sharing the apartment, to discuss who's going to take the keys. Could not have been better. The furniture, overall impression and equipment is great. Quality of furniture is good: nice comfy chairs and beds, lovely kitchen and great bathroom. The house has a nice warm air to it, you feel at home instantly. Not to mention the various options for making coffee, tea, and the washer-dryer combination that you can use. Also there is lots of storage space for your luggage. Other people visiting our place were quite jealous of our little piece of paradise :) The only two things are that the place is on ground level so there's not too much sunlight. I imagine that in the winter it could be a bit dark, but in the summer it is actually an advantage because the place doesn't heat up so quickly. The second point is that there is a slight noise from a ventilator outside the bedroom window (could be the airco from the upper floors) and in the living room on the sofa bed, you have some noise from the refridgerator turning on and off during the night. However, these are only minor things and with earplugs this was fixed instantly. The street is really located in the center with great access to a good supermarket (WholeFood market), bikeshare programs and metro's or busses. Still, it's a quiet street, so no noise or disturbance during day or night. We actually got to meet Rob and Agneta as they live above the apartment, which is really convenient if you need anything. And they are such nice people. I would recommend anyone to stay here.
I loved it! It felt like home and was clean, beautiful, safe and the location was just perfect :)
Rob was very responsive to my first enquiry regarding the property and subsequent communications . I admit I had been concerned about arriving late at night, in the dark and having to deal with a lockbox , but the instructions were very clear, the unique code you give is a great advantage and worked really well.
The apartment is as described by the owners and other reviews- very nicely done with high quality materials- loved the bathroom stone tiles. The AC was quiet and very efficient - important in DC when the heat and humidly are high. The internet was fast which was important as I had to work.
The location is ideal - tree lined ,quiet street with little traffic meant I slept well ( as I am very sensitive to noise, this is important) but you are minutes away from the lively 14th street, Whole food , safeways etc.The only point to note is that the apartment does not have much natural light - which is not a problem if you are only spending early mornings and evenings.
We really enjoyed our stay at Rob and Agneta's beautiful, comfortable and well-appointed home. The neighbourhood is great, with many great restaurants and shops, including Wholefoods, within walking distance. We met Rob briefly during our stay and he was friendly and welcoming. He kindly allowed us to stay an extra hour to let our infant daughter get her morning nap in!!
Highly recommend this apartment!
As usual, it was a very nice experience. This time we got to share it with our grandson. Even he was impressed!
