Nice apartment for DC standards. Very convenient location, supermarket, restaurants and metro station are right around the block.
Beautiful apartment! In the best shape. You can hear footsteaps from above very loudly (depending on the neighbours). Very well located, with everything you need nearby.
The place was very clean and orderly, complete with the necessary amenities. Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Location is only a block away from major grocery store and pharmacy, and 2 blocks away from the metro. There were plenty of areas to hang out and restaurants within walking distance. Parking was not a problem but I had a zone1 visitor parking permit, so that was very helpful. If you don't have that, you might have to look a little farther for parking spots. Overall, I would recommend this place.
The five of us had a great stay at the apartment. The pictures represent the apartment quite well. It is located in a lovely neighborhood with a supermarket just around the corner. For four persons the apartment is ideal. More is possible, but then it gets a little crowed. We didn't really mind because we were out exploring the city most of the time.
Conclusion: Overall good value for money and I can recommend the place.
I can't say enough about the 13th Street NW beautiful home! I know I'm only echoing others, but this place is beautiful. Where do I start…? This property was exactly what we (meaning I) had searched months for! I am very specific, and thankfully I had a wide range of options so that I could be as specific as I wanted. The fact that I chose this place says a lot about the property. Here's what I was looking for… Spacious, great decor, well-furnished, CLEAN, safe and of course that WOW factor for my guest I was hosting. First and most importantly, I would rate my experience with the host and the property "10 out of 10" rate the property itself as "5 Stars.” I rented all four levels of this enormous brownstone to celebrate my 30th Birthday and host 16 of my closest friends and family. As I mentioned, I am extremely particular as I mentioned, so it was very important to find a place that was comfortable and spacious enough for 16 adults. After all we would be living under one roof for 5 days. The 13th Street property exceeded my expectations… The house itself is gorgeous and unique in size to especially for Washington DC. Moreover, this house had all the trappings to make my 30th Birthday extravaganza amazing. The property well-furnished has four (4) full kitchens, (4) washer/dryers, and (5) full bathrooms throughout the house. Which means a bathroom, kitchen and washer dryer on each floor!!!? Yes, the house has 4 kitchens, 5 bathrooms, 4 washer/ dryers, total including the basement which I rented as well. Halloween night, (my birthday) I hosted a dinner party for 30 of my friends and we had a spectacular time in the main dining area, which has a table that seat 20! Each level has a different setup and allows you to lock the door and get alone time if needed. Side note: I believe, each floor can be rented separately if you do not need the entire house. The house is a beautiful brownstone building in a brilliant location (Columbia Heights); the house was very clean with light and amazing decor. The beds were very comfortable and made with white linen on each level. Besides the great accommodations, Lois and her partners are great communicator and a wonderful host. Just to note, There are so many personal touches, I feel like I'm blabbering on, but I can't even describe it well enough with words. It was simply amazing!! I never met Lois, I got the keys from the box and put it back when we left. The neighborhood is amazing a well. The street is charming and the neighborhood quiet which was a great way to escape the chaos of the city. One block away you have Giant (a local grocery store) Target, Chipotle, Bed Bath and Beyond, Starbucks, Sticky Fingers Bakery and a host of other shops and restaurants. There is no need to worry about safety, we...
The lower apt was perfect, everything that we expected and more, 5 minutes walks to the metro, giant and a whole lot of restaurants makes the place a really nice vacation spot for tourist that want to get to know the city and then relax when they get home. You can tell by the little details in the place that they're always taking care of you ( body wash in the shower, there's tea and coffe on the kitchen so you dont have to buy one for a few days stay). Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend it!
We had some difficulties communicating with Lois and booking an apartment at first, but everything finally fell into place and we enjoyed staying at the apartment. It was clean, comfortable and conveniently located.
