Charlotte was v.prompt in replying to all our queries. She has the sensitivity to guage the guest 's requirements and comforts.The detailing regarding local transport ,the eating joints,the grocery shops,sight seeing,was all looked into very well.There were suggestions for the culturally inclined,the adventure seeker,the teenager on the go..all of that and more!Tips on how to get to the house,where to unload heavy baggage..made things easy.Matthias is a nice caring host and always just a call away.
The apartment is tucked on a peaceful quiet road .The local bus stop is just across the road.The people around are friendly and helpful.The area is very safe.
I was very comfortable and to summarize it was like a home away from home..!Thanks Airbnb,Charlotte and Matthias..we are now airbnb fans forever!
The apartment was very nice and very convenient. It was close to downtown by car (15 minutes) and very close to American University.
The apartment was very clean, and had everything we needed. Matthias (the host) was very nice all the time, we asked him to fix a noise, and he took care of it in a very efficient way. We had no problems at all and we enjoyed very much to be in the apartment.
Palisade Plush was a very cozy and comfy place to stay.Charlotte and Matthias were very caring and easy to talk to ... I recommend it!
Lovely apartment in super safe neighborhood. Clean and furnished with everything you would need during your stay. Great communication. My first airbnd experience was wonderful!
The Palisades Plush is a wonderful place to stay!!
Located in Washington's Palisades neighborhood, just west of Georgetown University, the Plush is in a very safe neighborhood where you can feel safe, anytime of day or night.
There is a Safeway store located about 5 blocks from the Plush that provides full line shopping. The Washington Metro bus D6 line passes the Plush, and provdes ready access to the entire Georgetown/Dupont Circle/downtown/Capitol Hill/Union Station area.
The Plush, though a basement unit, sits about 8' above the street level, and is very quiet at day and night. We found the unit stocked, not just with towels and linens, but with dish/laundry/dishwasher soap, all the pots, pans and dishes we would ever need.
Matthias was a most gracious host, and checked on us the day after we arrived to make sure we had everything we would need.
Offstreet parking was available and readily accessible from the alley behind the unit.
When in Washington, consider staying at the Palisades Plush - we plan on doing so again.
Charlotte and her staff-- Matthias and Desiree in particular-- made my trip to DC a very positive experience, despite my utter disappointment with the government shutdown and the inability to visit the museums and other sites. The disappointment was tempered by my stay in Palisades Plush.
I loved staying in Palisades away from the hustle of say, DuPont Circle. The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet, and above all, safe. Plush is conveniently located close to Starbucks (an absolute necessity), a nice little convenience store that carried just about anything you'd care to buy, a pharmacy, and the sweetest surprise being a delightful restaurant located across the street, "Et Voila" (the food and service were fantastic! You must order the lobster risotto and the endive salad if you go).
Plush itself is spotlessly clean and is equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay, right down to the fantastic shower, flat screen television, and Bose CD player/radio. It's a cute little place and furnished very comfortably. After five hours of walking around Arlington National Cemetery in the rain, it was heaven to come back to Plush, pour myself a glass of wine, turn on a movie (lots of channels to choose from) and sit in the recliner with my feet up. I'm ridiculously picky about bed linens and Plush did not disappoint. The sheets were fantastic, as was the mattress.
Matthias was a great host-- completely unobtrusive yet always present, just a call away. I called him late one evening because the television was confusing me (I'm tech-challenged), and his wife walked me through a fix for the television. He was also very helpful getting me connected to the building wi-fi (again, tech-challenged!). For those that might be concerned about being in Plush while piano lessons are going on upstairs, the lessons were a complete non-issue because I was out during the day and there are no lessons in the evenings.
If you are planning a vacation to DC, make sure a.) you won't be there during a government shutdown and b.) you stay at Palisades Plush. You might be a few miles from the hub of Washington, but the D5 bus stops right across the street and it's an easy ride to everything and anything you'd care to visit. It was heavenly coming back to my little home away from home after running around DC all day.
I heartily recommend this property! Thanks, Charlotte, Matthias, Desiree and all Lux BNB staffers!
Excellent stay and location since I needed to spend days in Georgetown. Perfectly clean & comfortable apartment with all amenities. A lovely space with everything you need, including free off-street parking. Photos are accurate. Comfy bed and TV area, nice table/chairs for eating or work (if you must), great WIFI, and very quiet. The home and local DC info provided was thorough and outstanding.

Our latest addition are vacation properties for Washingtonians. See the Washington Vacations section on our website for homes in the nearby mountains. Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.
A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the "must-see" sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.
We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.
