Location...location!!!! Only a five minute walk from the Metro
The carriage house was exactly what we expected and perfectly suited our needs. While we never got to meet any of the Remuzzi brothers, I found them to be very friendly and helpful with all my queries to them online... and they always responded very quickly.
Felt very safe in the apartment and it had everything we needed including excellent laundry facilities.
Only a short walk to Shaw Howard station and to the Giant supermarket made things very convenient. Would stay here again if I ever come back to DC.
Thanks guys for a great stay!
Really enjoyed the stay. Cool neighborhood. Very convenient to Metro. Hosts reached out a week in advance with very clear instructions.
The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This apartment delivered everything promised. An incredibly convenient location just a block and a half near a metro stop and all the basics you need in an apartment for a visit to DC. The brothers were very communicative and the instructions were more than complete. A great place to stay!
