The Remuzzi Brothers have been wonderful hosts. Very available and respectful. Each time I had to contact them (before the trip and even while staying in the house) I got answered very quickly. The Carriage house is very cozy and clean plus very well located in a VERY quiet and charming neighborhood with many convenience stores within minutes of walk. The Carriage House is very luminous and well furnished. We can see how hard they work to get those good reviews, the definitely deserve it. Everything we have to know in the house is very well explained and detailed. I read some review that their TV and Media center is hard to configure... well not at all when you know how to read their very well short and detailed instructions. Plus, on computer desktop they left some good museum, attraction and restaurant adresses. Inside the house you get plenty of city guides and documentation on the city and area. It's sure that as soon as I return to Washington DC, I will contact the Remuzzi Brothers again ! Thank you very much guys and continue your good work ! Sincerely.
Great hosts! Great lcoation!
Nice to place to stay and convenient to the yellow/green line. Would stay there again.
This place is great. Easy to get to, convenient, in a cool neighborhood, and comfortable.
Just had a brilliant few days in the Carriage House thanks to the Remuzzi brothers. We were fortunate enough to meet Joe upon our arrival and he gave us run down of everything in the apartment and some key advice for our time in DC. The apartment itself is everything you need for a quick stay in DC plus its located 3 mins walk from the metro and a 15 min walk down to Chinatown. The communication from the brothers was great and we had absolutely no issues dealing with them at all. Some reviews have mentioned that there were issues with connecting the TV but if they had read the instructions carefully it was a piece of cake. The washer and dryer were first class too and came in handy especially when living out of suitcase for 2 months! In all it was a great DC experience for us and we would recommend staying here.
Very helpful and responsive!
Great place. The Remuzzi Brothers were very helpful and attentive. We will definitely be back on our next trip to DC. A couple of downsides that kept us from giving 5 stars. One was the TV setup. It was some sort of internet streaming setup. Although there were instructions, it was not easy and in the end we gave up. I'd suggest getting basic cable so people can just turn on the TV and not have to go through a multi-step process. The second was the bad drafts that allowed cold air to come through the windows. Not a big deal if you are not there in the winter. Regardless, still a great space and great hosts!
I would recommend this place and the Remuzzi Brothers as hosts to those looking to stay in the Shaw/Howard U. area of D.C. The Carriage House was a cozy, comfortable and clean place to stay. The Shaw metro station is unbelievably short walk, so you have easy transport all around. We took a short metro ride to U street a few nights during our stay and enjoyed some really good restaurants there.
This was a conveniently located place near my cousins in DC. These guys are delightfully considerate and responsive if anything goes wrong. There were a few glitches but their quick attention to all issues made it easy to live with.
I thoroughly appreciated the space and the ease in dealing with the Remuzzi Brothers!
I would recommend this to anyone interested in staying in that area and I would certainly stay there again.
My boyfriend and i had a comfortable three night stay at the carriage house. It was clean, warm and easy to access. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to Washington.
