Beautiful place and very convenient location in Capitol Hill. Recommend you spend your time at Desiree's. Place has everything you need!

The place was very clean and comfortable, everything you need is right there. The host is a SUPER host, BEST communication ever and by far the MOST friendly host I have experienced in Airbnb. Desiree goes beyond to make her guests feel right at home. However, we had an issue with mosquitos, upon arrival the unit was infested with mosquitos, we had to go to the store to buy something to spray the unit. By the second day the mosquito problem had subsided. She was very responsive and offer to reimburse us for the spray. Again, very nice and on top host. Another important aspect is the noise, Desiree clearly and honestly disclosed the noise factor in her description but be aware it is much worse than we anticipated, you can hear a pin drop (every step, flushing of toilets, usage of water, closing of cabinet doors, TV, etc). With this said, if you are a light sleeper, consider brining earplugs. Lastly, location... The unit is in front of a large housing project, so we did not feel safe walking around the neighborhood, entering or leaving the unit.

This was my third stay at Desiree's apartment, and the apartment was even more perfect than I remembered. The location is wonderful--very safe and conveniently located, close to 2 Metro stops, with a great grocery store just up the street. My daughter and I shared the pull out couch and found it very comfortable with the nice linens and ample pillows provided. Desiree was very kind a leave coffee, snacks, and Metro cards for us to use. We will definitely stay here again when in Washington!

We loved this place! It was beautifully decorated. We loved how easy it was to walk to the metro and grocery store. Our granddaughter loved eating at a Mexican restaurant nearby.

We had a wonderful stay and loved your place! It was perfect for us. We ate some delicious meals at the restaurants close by and enjoyed the walk home. We mostly used Uber for getting around to the sites, as there were four of us and that was fast and inexpensive. Hope to come back in the future....we just barely scratched the surface of all that Washington has to offer. Would definitely stay here again!

It is a really place to stay! Desiree really makes your trip special! She had snacks on the kitchen counter when we arrived! Prior to our trip, Desiree communicated with us about transportation and if we needed anything, even though she was out of the country during our trip! Everything was wonderful! We would stay there, again!

Three friends and I enjoyed our stay. $5-10 Uber to pretty much anywhere you would want to go, or a 8-10 minute walk to 8th street with a bunch of fantastic restaurants. Great wifi, cable, and appliances too. Friends said, "that was the comfiest pullout couch I've ever slept on!"

I have lived on Capitol Hill since 2001 and love my neighborhood. I am fortunate to live and work in the nations Capitol. DC attracts very intersted people from alll over the world which makes it an exciting place to live. I think DC is one of the more beautiful cities in the world filled with history and culture. I enjoy walking to different resturants, museums, and experiencing the endless events the city has to offer. I hope you too will enjoy the nations Capitol as much as I do!
