The apartment is 800 sq. feet, has separate bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom all recently renovated. The feature amenity is the huge balcony with patio furniture and small bbq grill overlooking the DC skyline. We are on the top floor in DC's highest elevated neighborhoods which means breathtaking panoramic views of many of DC's best neighborhoods and sights including the nations Capitol, Washington Monument, Georgetown Waterfront, Potomac River and across the bridges into Virginia Skyscrapers. The picture included does not do justice to the view, it is absolutely unbelievable.

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.
Great apartment with amazing views. Good location close to shopping, bars, restaurants. Great host.
Chris and Maria were very accommodating and helpful. The apartment was well equipped and very clean. We did a lot of sightseeing and walking. The apartment is not within walking distance of the main drag of Georgetown and the return trip would be all uphill. If you plan to eat out in the evening in Georgetown you may want to use some kind of transportation.
Nous n'avons pas rencontré Maria (tout a été fait par texto). Quartier très agréable. Logement conforme à la description, agréable et propre. Par contre nous étions 1 couple et un adulte et le futon (2ème couchage correct) était dans la chambre .Donc il a dormis sur le canapé dans le living -matelas gonflable vraiment pas agréable-. De plus logement prévu pour couchage 6 personnes mais vraiment optimisé et trop juste pour y manger (seulement 4 chaises). Petit détail : la bouteille et la bière sont une très charmante attention mais il n'y avait que les 2 verres sur la table !
Beautiful apartment, just as described! Thank you for a wonderful stay at your apartment!
This flat is great! Safe and secure neighborhood, very clean, good location. Chris and Maria are friendly and helpfull people. I would recommend it! Thank you very much!

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!
