We had a great time in DC! This was the perfect location, your apartment is charming and the building felt safe. Finding your place from the metro was a breeze - even with two teenagers and backpacks. Jeannine's communication with us was great, especially during the check in process. The tree top view from the large windows felt soothing and the city noise was not overwhelming. We did just about everything we had wanted to do in DC - monuments, museums, dining. DC is a lot of walking but being blocks from the mall made this so much easier. My son slept well on the couch and loved the TV headphones. My daughter was able to study without interruption while I prepared dinner. The kitchen had all the extras that we needed. The crockpot made a great pot roast and the espresso maker made for the perfect wake up call. The washer and dryer were quieter than I expected. I almost did not hear it and washing really cut down on the baggage that we needed to carry. This was our first airbnb experience and it was a good one. Thanks.
Die Kommunikation mit Jeannine war per Mail sehr gut. Alles haben wir wie beschrieben vorgefunden. Einige Maengel in der Wohnung mit Licht und Kaffeemaschine hatte Jeannine vorher beschrieben und bedeuteten kein Problem fuer uns.
Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und fuer 3 Personen zu bewohnen. Allerdings muss die 3.Person auf dem Sofa schlafen, dass passt fuer einige Tage. Bettwaesche hierfuer mussten wir uns suchen.
Der Pool ist leider fuer Kurzurlauber nicht nutzbar, da ein Pass mit Photo vorgezeigt werden muss.
Die Wohnungslage ist sehr gut, wenige Minuten zu einem Supermarkt, ruhige Gegend aber ganz nah zur Mall. Washington laesst sich zu Fuss wirklich gut erschliessen.
Insgesamt ein schoerer Aufenthalt bei Jeannine und David. Danke.

We were very pleased with our stay at Jeannine and David's apartment. It was clean, comfortable, had all the amenities we could have hoped for, and is in a great location. It's a 3-4 minute walk to the supermarket and the metro, a 10-15 minute walk to the famous fish market, and a 15-20 minute walk to the National Mall where most of the touristy stuff is (memorials, monuments, museums, etc.). They even left out a binder full of extremely helpful information like things to see, places to go, and reviews/recommendations for food. Communication with Jeannine was excellent as well, and she made sure to give detailed instructions on how to pick up the key from the concierge, where to park, where things were located in the apartment, etc. I highly recommend staying here if you can. Thanks so much!
Very nice experice, we host travelers in Nyc but was our first time using airbnb.
The comfortable apartment was located within walking distance to metro station and also to many of the attractions we wanted to see. The check in and check out process was very easy and smooth, and the apartment was immaculate, everything was clean, organized and with good taste of decoration, Will definitely plan to come back next time!
I was very, very happy with my stay at Jeannine's place. It meets all my criteria of what's important in an Airbnb stay: cleanliness, comfort, location, and price.
Jeannine's place was tastefully decorated - vintage lamps, a beautiful credenza, a flokati rug. Everything was clean and neat when we arrived. The first thing we noticed when walking in was a thick binder organized by Jeannine and filled with directions, restaurant reviews, and other helpful information about the area. She has put a lot of love into that binder, I can tell! It was a very helpful resource.
More about the apartment: the kitchen is a decent size, with all the amenities you could ask for. We didn't do a lot of cooking, but it's all here if you need it. Apparently there is a gym and business center in the the main building nearby - we didn't use them, but that is another great amenity. As I mentioned, living room is very tastefully decorated, as well as the rest of the apartment. Bathroom was clean and stocked with towel and Jeannine even left a tube of new toothpaste. That was a nice touch. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. The bed had a foam mattress.
Location is great, very close to The Mall. If you've come to DC to visit museums, this is your place. We had a car, so we didn't need to walk it - but I'm guessing the walk to the Mall would be in the 15-20 minute range. Some areas of DC are a bit sketchy, but I felt safe in this one. There was even a covered parking space that came with the apartment - that was perfect for us as we had a car and didn't want to waste time looking for parking spaces. My impression is that there are also ample Zipcars in the area, though I didn't really check.
Although we never met Jeannine, she was a great hostess - the key was waiting for us with the concierge, just as she said. And she went the extra step to touch base with us by phone/email during our stay. We could tell by her preparation that she wholeheartedly enjoys making the Airbnb experience enjoyable for others.
If you're going to DC, I would absolutely recommend Jeannine's place.
Our stay at Jeannine and David's place was absolutely perfect. Their place was clean and comfortable. Their condo was close to all necessary amenities (train, restaurants, convenience stores and grocery stores). Jeannine was very friendly and easy to contact. I would definitely stay at their place again when I return to DC.
We (myself, my partner and our 4 year old son) had a great stay at Jeannine and David's. it was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Jeannine was great to deal with, friendly and efficient and gave us some great suggestions and info about the neighbourhood (as Australians we were at a bit of a loss about what to do for thanksgiving, but took Jeannine's recommendation for a great restaurant down the street). The location is convenient, can walk to the museums and the mall etc, and if you don't feel like walking there is a very easy to navigate subway system a couple of minutes away. Safeways a short block away has everything you ned if you want to cook, and its a well set up kitchen, so cooking is easy, which was important for us with a child on a 6 night stay. Any information needed about how things worked in the apartment was easy to find in the big folder that is left for guests.
Everything about this trip was amazing! The ease of getting into the condo combined with the dedicated parking and the extremely detailed directions were phenomenal! Everything was laid out exactly as described and their condo is very comfortable and homey! Would definitely recommend if you are going to be in the DC area!
The condo is very comfortable and well decorated. My parents loved it, especially the mattress! Having a parking spot was convenient, and it was close to the freeway. Jeannine was very responsive and a real pro. Thanks so much!
