  • The apartment was a perfect fit for our family trip to DC. We loved the fully stocked kitchen and ability to do laundry on-site. Communication happened with ease and tips on the area, written directions, and metro cards were helpful to have. I would absolutely book again for future trips and will recommend the same for any friends headed to the DC area.

  • Eric and Dwylene exemplify the best of AirBnB as the wonderful proprietors of a fantastic apt. in DC. Eric and Dwylene communicate quickly and thoroughly, which made our trip planning easier. Upon arrival, Dwylene spent nearly 20 minutes acclimating us to the city (our 2nd trip) and pointing out some new sites that we might want to see. The metro cards and parking pass were greatly appreciated. We used Uber extensively, which offered reasonable rates for getting around the city due to my mother's decreased mobility.

    The well-equipped apt. is the perfect size for 3 - 4 adults or a small family. The unit was decorated nicely, but even more importantly had several nice touches that made the trip all the more meaningful. Specifically, they have a fully-equipped kitchen and many very reasonably priced food and drink items (e.g., bottles of wine, juice, water, cereals, mac n' cheese, coffee, tea, etc.) For nights or breakfasts that we didn't want to go to a restaurant, this made eating at the apt. easy and fun. The unit also has a TV with Netflix and the internet for some quick entertainment or for researching the sites DC offers.

    The apt.'s location is great. We were a 10-minute block from H-street, an up-and-coming part of town with many great eateries. (We highly recommend Toki Underground, H&Pizza, and The Queen Vic). Around the corner is a Zip Car rental lot and the D6 busline, which will take you straight to Union Station and then beyond. Within two blocks, there are several fun places to eat and a little market.

    Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased with our trip and look forward to returning to hopefully stay at Eric and Dwylene's place again soon!

  • We were amazed by the quality of service providedy by Eric and his wife.
    I thought I am organized person, but they managed to positively suprise me at many levels: prepared maps, guides regarding public transport, metro and parking card, refreshments in the fridge at very reasonable price etc.
    Place was clean, renovated.
    Would recommend this place to anyone.

  • I loved the apartment. My kids and sister too. We had a relaxing place to come back to and enjoyed some movies from Netflix. The location was close to the bus stop and it was easy to go into the metro. Our hostess was great when we needed more coffee and in general. Thanks so much! We did not use the free parking sticker because my cousin didn't stay long when he picked us up, but a great thing if we had an overnight visitor.

  • We all really enjoyed our stay with Eric and Dwylene. Everything was nicely set up when we arrived and we were pleasantly surprised to find lots of DC tourism materials, including maps and a really helpful sight-seeing book. We loved that we could walk to Capitol Hill within 30 minutes or grab the bus/metro conveniently and that Eric and Dwylene outlined how to use the public transit system both in writing and in person. We also really appreciated having the parking pass during our stay, it was easy to find parking within the block every time. We used the kitchen for most breakfasts and cooked a couple of supper-time meals in the apartment as well. The kitchen is well stocked and there are lots of helpful cooking necessities including sugar and salt and some other things that you don't need a lot of for simple meals. We were 5 adults and although there was ample space, we didn't spend very much time all together in the apartment and this was a good thing. Thanks for being such great hosts, we would definitely consider staying here again if we find ourselves back in DC!

  • What a great apartment! The location was convenient to the Metro and to the best taco place we have ever eaten at! Our host were always available to provide us advice and directions. The apartment was spotless and beautifully finished. My family wanted to take the pillows home - most comfortable ever!

    We would stay here again and will definitely recommend it to friends.

  • My dad and daughter thoroughly enjoyed the time in DC. It was perfect to have a fully stocked comfortable place to stay after a long college tour and too many hotels. Thank you for everything!!

About
My wife, Dwylene, and I have been AirBnB hosts for a while now and have thoroughly enjoyed the experiences we have had so far. We are the parents of two children that keep us young. We are proud residents of Washington DC (the city, not the "Washington" that you hear about in the news) and like to share information on all it has to offer with our guests. I travel often for work and like to think I know what makes for a good travel experiences.
