We are in North Georgetown/ Glover Park which is a neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C., about a half mile north of Georgetown and just west of the United States Naval Observatory and Number One Observatory Circle (the Vice President's mansion).
We are two blocks to the National Cathedral and Embassy Row, and Rockcreek Park . We are also walking distance to American and Georgetown universities. This is the safest and for me the most beautiful part of Washington, D.C.
Bus stop takes you to metro or anywhere downtown, stops in front of the place. Nearest metro - Woodly Park - 15 -20 min walk. Uber X cars are $7-15 to most places downtown and the Mall. Best way to travel for 2+ people around the city. Taxis are also plentiful if you step outside.

My wife, two small kids and I were looking for a decent place to stay in Washington for a couple of days and found Chris place to fit out price requirement and location just fine. The place was actually better than the photos in the listing and everything else was exactly as described. Although I didn't get to meet Chris he was very helpful and friendly and made swift responses to our questions. Most recommendable.
Awesome apartment, close to everything. Great view of Washington DC too. Highly recommended!
Chris and Maria's are great hosts, and the condo is well-appointed with a comfy bed, a balcony with a spectacular view of DC and all the comforts of home. They also were very accommodating of a pre-check in time request to drop off my bags after an early flight into DC. I would totally stay here again without a second thought.
Description was accurate. Great location and view! Host was out of the country so we did feel a little uncomfortable just leaving the apartment unlocked when we left. We would have preferred to meet someone and hand them the key. Overall great experience and location!
Lovely apartment, and the views were beautiful! We could see many monuments and the Capitol building from the balcony. The space was as described with lots of light, a full size kitchen and a comfortable bed. We also utilized the in building laundry which was easy. The neighborhood was quiet and safe, but close to restaurants and other amenities. We downloaded a Metro app and used the bus to get everywhere. It is well worth your time to figure out the bus system because so many buses come near the apartment. The walk to the zoo was lovely (about 25-30 minutes), but as others have said, it is uphill on the way back. Parking was easy to find except in the evenings when you needed to park around the block.
This was the first time I tried AirBNB and I am glad to say that it was way way beyond expectation ! Chris and Maria were very welcoming and collaborative! We were welcomed by a warm greeting by Chris with a bag of basic groceries which was just a plain nice gesture!
I did not end up staying in the apt for the whole period (due to some personal circumstances) but the time I spent there was very enjoyable.
Chris and Maria were very prompt ! there wasn't a time I called them or needed help that they weren't accessible.
I highly recommend dealing with them. Two of the nicest people I have ever met.

About the Host, Chris
Serial entrepreneurs and creative director based in DC but constantly on the move... We're musicians, cooks, creatives, producers, business developers and dabblers in exciting and hopefully lucrative ideas. As natural networkers... we're good at seeing the big picture and connecting people accordingly.
We're on the look out for folks who embrace and love life as much us, steering clear of those who drag their way through unexcited, uninterested, and uninspired. Looking forward to you!
