Sakhi is a great host! Communication with him was very timely and he is always quick to respond. The apartment is very cozy and has everything thing one needs for a short or long stay. There is a great modern kitchen, big shower, and a full washer and dryer. We stayed four nights while I was working in DC. My wife was able to telework from the apartment each day in the little office nook in the apartment. Overall a great stay!

Perfect for two people, may be a little cramped with more. The bathroom was beautiful and had plenty of space. The kitchen was well equiped. The seating area was perfect to relax at night and the bed was comfy and clean.

Sakhi's place was great! He was very clear and communicative, easygoing with our check in and check out schedule, and even provided bagels, yogurt, and juice to help us get started off. The only thing to note is hay the location is about a 25-30 minute drive from D.C., so consider that! The apartment is located in the basement as well, so there is a small staircase leading down to the entrance. Overall, a great stay and highly recommended!

I'm a long-time D.C. resident. I've lived out west, Arizona, California and also abroad and I've enjoyed visiting places in the Caribbean like the Great Exumas, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic, St. Thomas, St. John, the Bahamas. I've also travelled to African countries like South Africa, Mozambique, Swaziland. I've been described as the easy-going, laid-back type. But when stuff needs to get done, I'm on it. I'm into all music & enjoy art, different cultures, & different foods.
