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.

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.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this lovely Capitol Hill apartment. Micha made me feel very welcome even before I arrived - and answered email queries very quickly! Upon arrival, I was met with freshly baked brownies & Micha had left useful brochures and leaflets in the apartment, alongside a metro guide. The apartment is about an 8-minute walk from the Capitol/Library of Congress, making it perfect for my travel purposes. In terms of 'things to do' nearby - the apartment is also conveniently located near several bars/restaurants on 8th St SE, including 'Ted's Bulletin' which was a definite favourite! The apartment is also a 10-minute walk from Union station allowing easy access to different metro lines & semi-seamless navigation around the City. It was also fab to be able to come home and watch House of Cards, accessible via netflix.
All in all - a great stay in a great city - made all the better by the hosts and the beautiful apartment. I would highly recommend this listing.
Micha was an excellent host - great communication before we arrived and homemade cookies. The apartment is well located. It is three blocks from Eastern Market and some great shops and restaurants. Highly recommended!
Micha was a great host. I was greeted w/ yummy brownies. She checked-in w/ me to make sure the temperature was okay (it was cold in DC!). Getting in and out was easy. Location was perfect and convenient. I was there for work and it was a 5 min walk to the metro. I stopped at Peregrin Expresso before work and fell in love w/ it. Great coffee and delicious pastries. I did not spend very much time in the apt, but it had everything you would need, including a metro card. It was very clean and nicely decorated.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this apartment. Micha was helpful, attentive and gracious, but not obtrusive. The location was ideal, close to a Metro Station, a good grocery store and restaurants. The apartment was attractively decorated and extremely clean. We especially appreciated the delicious brownies and the Metro cards. It was very convenient to have the use of an equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer. Misha had a very helpful guide to the neighborhood and had numerous pamphlets and guides available describing area attractions.
