Makese did not text me until the day before that he was not available for check in until 11pm. His place was dirty - the bathroom smelled and there were dead cockroaches on the floor. The location was good, however his place was in the basement, which was a little sketech. Street parking was also impossible, and you have to move your car by 9am if you do not want a ticket. Makese had a guest parking pass, but he lost it and did not have it upon my arrival. Makese himself was friendly, however I would not stay here again due to the cleanliness.

Response from Makese:
This review isnt accurate and extremely unfair. The place is was fully cleaned before Jodi arrived. In addition, the checkin process clearly states that check in is after 4pm. During the booking process Jodi never mentioned the need for a car nor did she mention that she would need arrive earlier than posted check in time. During her two day stay Jodi never mentioned or raised any concerns about the issues brought up in her review. Finally, the condo is not basement level. Its garden level with small stairs that quickly allows access to the street.

I am so glad I picked up this place for my week long stay in DC. Great location and safe neighborhood. Makese is a gentlemen of the first order. He was very welcoming, accommodating and friendly. He went out of his way to make sure I felt home. Very sociable and friendly. I had access to all amenities and appliances in his beautiful well kept place; shower, kitchen, fridge, large screen tv, washer and drier and more. What I liked most about Makese is that he always kept a smile and was ready to help. I was worried about parking in DC. Makese managed to take time off and got me a temporary parking permit from the police station which not only saved me money but more importantly saved me precious time. I slept like a baby at Makese's place. The couch was big enough and super comfortable. I am 6.1" ! I will definitely book my stay with Makese again. Thank you Makese. Thank you Airbnb for making staying in a place like Makese's a reality. Top host with a great place to stay in the heart of Washington DC.

Makese was very friendly and helpful, and always asked if there was anything I needed. I was just looking for a place to crash for my first week back in DC while I arranged to move into my new apartment. The location is great, located right down the street from a Giant, the subway (Columbia Heights), and the area is full of restaurants. Overall it was exactly what I needed, and a really convenient place to crash for a week.
