No smoking, no pets, no walking with shoes inside, no spots on the carpet (please handle all food/drink items carefully). The tub is acrylic, so please only use acrylic safe products/materials. Everything in the apt is generally straightforward, we have only received one question regarding how to switch the water flow from the tub faucet to the shower, it's by pulling the tip of the faucet downward.
Great place. Clean, comfortable, great view. Jack made it extremely easy for us to get into the apartment for the night. Would recommend to friends!
This is an amazing space. My wife and I stayed at jacks lovely home for 7 days and thought it was an awesome way to see the city. It's very close to Arlington national cemetery and walking distance to iwo jima memorial. It's about a 45 min walk to Lincoln memorial but it's a easy fun walk. We had some friends stay at the mandarine oriental and when they saw our place they were pretty peeved at how good we had it. This place is a photogs dream as its high above the city and provides awesome opportunity for day and night city scales. Well equipped with all needed kitchen supplies. The compound the apt is located in is like a little city - has a market right down stairs that has some amazingly high end food items for such a place, a nice gym and a dry cleaners. It was a 9-12 uber ride into downtown depending on traffic. It's about a 10 min walk to Roselyn metro station. I can't recommend it enough. If you have the opportunity to stay here you will not be disappointed. The view is super romantic and fun.
Everything was perfect. Jack and his wife made sure everything was in order by the time I arrived. I had to extend my stay and he was very responsive. The apartment is just perfect to discover the city. 5 minutes from three different lines of the metro. The best view of the mall and the Potomac. Perfect to comute to Reagan National. It has a grocery store downstairs that is great to buy everyday stuff. Very convenient laundry and dry cleaning services. Go for it. You won't regret it.
The apartment is fantastic. It has literally one of the best views in DC. With the living room being so spacious and open, it is a great place to relax and enjoy the view of DC. As for the location, it is walking distance to the Rosslyn Metro, CVS, Starbucks and Chipotle. I barely have to use my car get around. Overall, I had a wonderful experience. Jack had been a very good host. He was accommodating and he made me feel welcome into his beautiful home.
Absolutely perfect spacious 1BR apartment in every sense. Location, view, setup, distance from Metro, restaurants, CVS (for small stuff). First of all, the communication with Jack and Diana was extremely good. They suggested great restaurants (we loved Zaytinya), places to go, but the main thing for us was the safety of the area. The view was incredible (as described), as we enjoyed seeing the Washington Monument at night, along with the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials. Arlington Cemetery was just a short distance away.
We wouldn't hesitate staying at Jack's and Diana's apartment in the future, and would recommend it to anyone at anytime!
Thank you so much, Jack and Diana. We truly enjoyed our stay!
Jack's place was great and the view was even better in person. Apartment was clean and neat and conveniently located in Rosslyn, just across from Georgetown.
Jack was also very helpful in providing the information needed and we were able to check-in without a problem. Would definitely recommend this place to a single or couple looking to spend time in DC!
You can't beat the view from this apartment, it is stunning. We were here for a week long vacation. The location was perfect, just a short few blocks from the metro station. We were close enough to walk to Georgetown and then just took easy trips on the metro to everywhere else. There is easy access to a CVS and onsite market for necessities, plenty of eating establishments nearby and we absolutely loved the accessibility of a full gym. If you enjoy parks and trails, you can find them literally across the street. We enjoyed lovely runs thru the area.
Jack was a very helpful, kind and patient host. I am a coffee addict and he was gracious enough to ensure we had a coffee maker available for our use during our stay. We were behind on our estimated arrival at the apartment but Jack and his wife were there to welcome us with smiles. I am still getting into the groove with Airbnb and this experience renewed my belief that stepping outside your comfort zone can reap huge rewards. Can't imagine staying anywhere else if we vacation in DC again.
Lived in DC for 18 years and loving it. Please ask me for places to go and things to do, I enjoy being a DC guide. Also, enjoy biking, swimming, dining, and cultural events. I am sure you will love your stay in this great city!
