However, with work and school, you may not even see us! We always like to provide a greeting if possible, but completely understand if our paths do not cross due to different schedules.

Micha's apt is WONDERFUL! Very clean, attractive, practical and with many extra touches that just make you feel comfortable and at home.
My family (2 adults, 2 small children) loved everything- kitchen was ample cooking area, living room was great for relaxing, and bedroom was decent for sleeping.
Netflix on TV/roku was great when everyone needed to veg out.
Location was excellent for walking to mall, eastern market and subway stations.
Grocery stores were easy to walk to.
Also parking very easy in area- was able to find a spot right outside of apt.
I would definitely stay here again next time we are in DC!!!!
Thank you Micha!
Excellent location to all the amazing landmarks. Mischa had left us 2 metro passes to use around town, which was of great use and super thoughtful. Tons of great food options around. Great spot, you won't regret it!
The apartment was perfect! It was spacious, tidy and has everything you need. Micha was lovely as well, she came to say hello when I checked in. She even left a metro card for me to use and brownies. Thanks again Micha!
We enjoyed our 2nd stay at this apartment, and the hosts are always accommodating and friendly. It is very convenient to Eastern Market and such a comfortable living area, with all the amenities of home.
We hope it will be available on our next DC visit!
Aloha, Cindy and Ty
It is a very nice place, everything went absolutely perfectly well. Micha was extremely helpful - my colleague and I were on a business trip, and Micha helped us printing the scripts for our conference talks. We would any time be very happy to stay there again!!
Micha and her husband made us feel very welcome. The flat was very clean and suited our family perfectly. We loved the furnishings and decoration of the space, and it contained everything we needed. Our hosts gave us great recommendations for family-friendly restaurants in the neighborhood, as well as providing tourist advice. The Capitol Hill neighborhood is beautiful and located near major sites. Since we had a couple of messy kids, the washer and dryer came in handy.
We loved our stay and would love to visit them again!
Micha was a very nice and informative host and quite charming when I knocked and asked questions one day. Everything was exactly as she described and her directions to the apartment were detailed and helpful. The rooms were clean and neat and the main room spacious for a basement appartment. The bed very comfortable with a a nice warn duvet with plenty of pillows. The shower water was hot and the wireless worked without glitch. The neighborhood was a quiet and charming area of D.C. and I enjoyed walking around it, and picking up food to cook in the kitchen at the Eastern Market.
This was my first time using airbnb and I was very pleased with with the experience and would happily stay here again.
