Would stay there again.
Marina's and James' apartment was the perfect home base for exploring the DC sights. It was exactly as advertised -- a comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed one bedroom apartment that has access to both front and back patios. Parking was also easy to find and Marina obtained a permit for us in advance of our stay.
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Communication with Marina and James was easy. they were very responsive during the booking process and made all info (travel directions, reservations, expectations) very clear. The apartment was as described and was perfect. I was traveling for business and much prefer the comfort of something that feels like home over a hotel. The apartment is very conveniently located on a quiet residential street very close to the metro. The apartment was comfortable and had all of the expected ammenities. The gas fireplace on chilly nights was a bonus!
Marina and James left very helpful information about the neighborhood and the apartment was exactly as described and pictured. The three of us (mom, dad, 14-year-old son, were quite comfortable there. We especially loved the proximity to the Metro--and hence the entire city, and the walkability to Barracks row, which is a great neighborhood to check out. We had a great stay and a great trip!
I didn't have the pleasure of staying at Marina's place but my father did. He was all round happy with the apartment and location, Marina was very communicative and friendly, and we can definitely recommend the place.
