This apartment is located in the beautiful and historic Shaw district where a10 minutes walk takes you to the Mount Vernon Metro Station and to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. A 30 minutes walk takes you to The White House, The US Capitol, The National Mall and the museums. There are numerous restaurants and bubs in the neighborhood all within a few blocks. The largest grocery store in DC is also within a 7-10 minutes walk.
This apartment is fully updated and renovated with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen and all new appliances. This is a ground level apartment with no steps and very convenient for the elderly and the folks with mobility issues. The dining table seats 6 but extends for 8.
We had an awesome stay at Allen's AirBNB. I would recommend Allen's place to others visiting DC in a heartbeat! The 6 of us slept comfortably and soundly, enjoyed the use of the kitchen, and the metro was only a 8-10 minute walk away. There was tea and coffee at our disposal and plenty of towels for us to use. Allen greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful! The only bit I might warn others about is that you can hear most of what happens in the apartment above (footsteps and talking), so it bring a pair of earplugs incase you are very sensitive to noise when sleeping.
The apartment was very clean and looked exactly like the pictures. It is a little bit dark because it's an English Basement, but we didn't spend much time there during the day anyway. The rooms are quite nice and the kitchen and laundry room come equipped with soap/paper towels/condiments/etc., so it felt quite homey for my parents and sister, who stayed there for 4 nights. The kitchen is super nice and the living room/dining room area made a great place for us to hang out and relax after long days.
We were unaware that we had to wash and dry all the towels before checkout before we booked it (which was probably my fault in not reading all the fine print beforehand), so that did cause some stress on the final day. Besides that, the only other detractor was that any noise going on upstairs was fairly audible in the apartment below. I think it's just a design feature of old places, but my sister did say it woke her up a few times (she was probably sleeping in, though).
Overall, it was a wonderful stay. I would recommend this place for a family coming to visit DC.
Great stay. Apartment is as described and as pictures describe it. Very clean. Close to the Mall and Capitol building. We took the bus to save more energy for walking on the Mall but you can walk it. Very responsive to our requests and needs.
We will rent again if we are in DC area.
Thank you Allen.
