This is a clean, light and airy 1 bedroom apartment. It has a private entrance, full bath, living room, and kitchenette. The apartment is newly-renovated with bamboo floors and new appliances.
The bedroom has a queen size bed with very comfortable Keetsa organic mattress, a large window, and a desk.
The living room includes a TV, DVD player, full size sleeper couch, and a twin-size window seat/daybed.
The fully-stocked kitchenette has a fridge, stovetop, sink and microwave.
The apartment is well-located in Columbia Heights--the best neighborhood in the District!--just 2 blocks from the Columbia Heights metro and DC USA shopping and restaurants. There is a supermarket, and several local organic grocery stores within a few blocks. Also the Mt Pleasant strip is just two blocks away, with excellent restaurants (Thai, Pizza, Salvadorean, American), great bars (the Raven, the Marx Cafe, Tonic etc), and relaxing coffee shops. We will provide a list of our favorites places.
The apartment is also just five minutes walk to the hiking and bike trails and National Zoo in Rock Creek Park.
Both metro and bus lines run straight downtown within 15 minutes. There are also several city bike shares within a few blocks.
Street parking is easily available at the house.
Monroe is a pretty tree-lined street, with a great family and community environment. It is quiet and safe, but close to shopping, nightlife, and DC's best sites. There are also farmer's markets within a few blocks during the warm months.
We are happy to answer any questions about the apartment or about DC!
Amazing space, lots of light, super spacious and convenient to everything, comfy comfy bed, speedy net. I always have the best time when I stay at Ben and Sheenas.
Fantastic space, great location - if anything, the photos don't quite do justice to Ben and Sheena's efforts to create a welcoming and comfortable space. Close to public transport, groceries and some great nearby restaurants - very sad to leave!
The title says it all.... GREAT LOCATION. It only took us 20 minute to get to the Smithsonian museums from the apartment using the subway. Many good breakfast spots in the area, would definitely consider renting the apartment again.
We had a fantastic time. The apartment was bright and clean and the location was amazing. We walked to everything from grocery to zoo! Lovely all around!
Great location, very nice apartment. Coordinating with the host was easy and painless. Ben even hooked us up with a parking pass. While the wifi is super slow, I'd still definitely recommend. We had a great time.
Benjamin was a courteous host. The space reminded me of home: clean, quiet, and minimal--provided much-needed peace on a busy business trip. I originally selected the spot based on its proximity to Rock Creek Park for morning runs but found it well-located for everything else. All the big box stores are nearby and it was a nice two-mile walk to my office. Good fast wireless, washer/dryer was nice and clean, the bed was comfy. A wonderful stay, I plan to book the space again on my next trip to DC.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, well lit, amazingly furnished and had great finishes. While I did not use the washer and dryer, they were full size and brand new. Linens were clean and fresh. Excellent place!
The location is within walking distance of three DC neighborhoods: Columbia Heights (with a metro stop), Adams Morgan and Shaw/Petworth. A grocery store is about a 10 minute walk from the apartment.
We loved the location, easy access to the metro, shopping, dining . The neighborhood is quite quiet and autumn leaves were falling, a real taste of the eastern USA. The beds were very comfortable. A lot of movement noise from apartment above, but this improved when I called it to Ben's attention. I suspect there are hardwood floors which convey the noises.
very nice appartment, super location. we were 4 (2 adults and 2 kids). Ben is very nice and stay always in contact. I would say that the appartment is better if you want to have only breakfast at home and to have dinner and lunch outside. I recommend.
Clean apartment, very convenient and well located. Benjamin and Sheena are helpful and friendly. Good place.
