I'm an open book, a really thick one.
Mark's place was wonderful and perfectly located with everything you'd want less than 3 min away on foot. His place is HUGE and it's nice to have an upstairs and downstairs with all of the amenities that you could ask for. I would most definitely stay here again. Way better than a hotel and super cozy! Mark was a wondeful host and really made the whole renting process easy.
I had the pleasure of staying at Mark’s place for more than a month.
The first asset is of course location. You can’t find a much more convenient and central location. Just a block away from Dupont Circle, there is access to Metro and Capital Bikeshare. It is within walking distance of tons of good places.
As said in another review, the photos well depict the flat. It functions very well indeed and is a very comfortable and nice place. I was there in August and worried about the heat, but the AC functions very well.
My only regret was that I never met Mark in person. He was however very helpful in giving advice - including about where to buy a bike! His neighbor was also most helpful and even gave me fresh fruit so I had something for breakfast the first day. It is a relatively small building with a lot of charm and ambiance. You feel very welcomed by the other occupants in the building gave valuable guidance for somebody new to DC.
I will definitely recommend Marc’s place to anyone visiting Washington for shorter or longer stays.
I had a great one-month stay at Mark's place. The location is superb, with easy access to good restaurants in the Dupont Circle area, a superb, upscale grocery store (Whole Foods at 15th and P), and two major nightlife districts (Adam's Morgan and U Street between 11th and 15th). Mark is an excellent host. He is easy to reach by phone, text, or email, and he responds quickly -- usually within minutes -- and fully. Two other points: (i) the bed is exceptionally comfortable and (ii) Larry Fenton, the friendly, helpful neighbor across the hall, is a real resource.
This was my first experience with Airbnb and I certainly made a good choice in selecting Mark's home to spend 2 weeks. He was an excellent host in terms of accurately describing the flat and the pics he included with the description--it was exactly what I expected when my husband and I arrived--no surprises! Prior to our visit Mark kept in contact and answered any questions that arose. Through his introduction, I felt very confident in my choice of accommodations among the hundreds that were available. Mark made himself available to meet us upon arrival to show us around and answer any questions. The location (Dupont Circle) is perfect! Within walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, public transit, art galleries and most of the major visitor attractions such as: White House, Smithsonian Museums, National Zoo, etc. Also, a great theatre (Keegan Theatre) a five minute walk away. The two-level flat is located in a very quiet building and it is nice to have the bedroom upstairs away from the living area. If I were to visit Washington again, I would definitely make this my #1 choice of places to stay. Mark, thank you for your kind hospitality and making our first visit to Dc that much more enjoyable.
