We enjoyed our stay at Palisades Plush. The apartment was clean and well stocked with towels, linens, and kitchen items. Our family of four slept comfortably with the kids on the fold-down couch and the cot, adults in the bedroom. As a family with young children, we especially appreciated having the washer and dryer in the apartment and the playground nearby.
The neighborhood is lovely and quiet with nice restaurants. The D6 bus was convenient to get on across the street, but took about 45-50 minutes to get downtown, with a 4-5 block walk to the National Mall at the closest drop off location near the Museum of Natural History. We waited anywhere from 10-45 minutes to get on the bus from downtown.
Matthias was friendly and helpful. Thanks for a pleasant stay!
The Plush is very nice, updated with a dishwasher, washer/dryer, and utensils. To get to National Mall, it is 1 block walk to the bus stop, but the bus ride is 45-50 mins. Personally, I drove to East Falls Church station and took the metro in, which is faster than the bus.
Matthias is very responsive to every of my needs. He usually responds within 30 mins if I have a question.
Charlotte is excellent too. I initially booked a different location for different dates but I had a schedule conflict for Charlotte was able to modify my reservation to the Plush with no extra cost.
I had an amazing time on palisades plush. The place is clean and fresh. It has a very nice localization, near by convenience store, pharmacy, Starbucks and restaurants. It has all that we need, washer and dryer, kitchen with stove, dish washer, microwave and whatever we need. Besides, Matthias, who was mine direct contact was an spectacular host! Who was always available to help us and clear our doubts. It was a very pleasant time. I recommend!
We had a very good time during our stay at Palisades Plush. The apartment is very well furnished. The neighborhood is very nice, quiet with a lots of small restaurants, and a supermarket at 0.6miles very convenient. With a direct bus line it takes you 45min to go to the White house. It was very easy to communicate with the host.
The only negative point is that the couch is not confortable to sleep in but fortunately there was an extra cot that was confortable.
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.

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.
