Heather and Vasa have a lovely, clean, centrally located home. They were both very kind and helpful the little we interacted with them as we had a busy schedule. The neighborhood is close to the Capitol buildings and neat restaurants and was safe and charming.
Heather and Vasa were great hosts, very friendly and considerate. I stayed for two nights and enjoyed it very much. They warmly welcomed me, and Vasa kindly helped me with my heavy suitcase. The room is beautiful, spacious and clean. It's a wonderful place to stay in Washington, in a nice and quiet neigborhood. I would definitely recommend it.
The location of the house is very convenient, in close proximity to the subway and other public transportation. The house itself is very clean and well equipped with all necessary appliances. The host is warmhearted and considerate, and had prepared itinerary for us to consider during our trip in DC.
The house was in a perfect location. We could easily get around from here. The room was very clean and exactly what we needed. Unfortunately,we didn't get to meet Heather but her partner was very welcoming and a pleasure to talk to. He was very informative on the area.
Heather and Vasa's place was great. I arrived to a nice clean room. I did not get the chance to meet Heather, but I was barely in the house during the stay. I ran into Vasa a nice friendly and helpful host.
Heather and Vasa were great hosts, kind & friendly folks who keep a welcoming and tidy home. The space was perfect for what we needed, and though I myself knew my way around DC, they both knew and provided a great deal of information on where to go. The room and bathroom were clean and the neighborhood had its charms. It is true to the listing, but be prepared for a firmer bed.
All in all we had a great time, and if you chose to stay, you won't be disappointed or underwhelmed.
