Joel is a very friendly host who loves the neighborhood and was welcoming and gracious. A super walking location with lots of public transit. Very clean and comfortable room with a "real bed."
We had a very good time at Joel's place! The room was nice, the appartment clean and very conveniently located in a nice neighbourhood (less than 10 min walk to Dupont Circle - red and orange/blue metro stations, lots of restaurants, cafes and bookstores close-by).
If Joel is around during your stay, you will find that he is a very pleasant host who is very knowledgable about the area, DC and the world in general!
It was really nice to stay with Joel. My room was large enough and bright, great bed with sweetest dreams ever after busy conference days :) I also enjoyed the company with his pet Max
Joel Selanikio was a perfect host. We met Joel shortly after arriving at our 'apartment for the week'. He really cares about his air B and B guests. The place was cool and comfortable. We moved right in. The location of this apartment was walking distance to eVErYtHiNg...even closer when we took a bus or the metro. Food shopping and good dining were nearby, too.
Our family enjoyed touring DC and hanging out - feeling like a local. A nice neighborhood surrounds the apartment. We ate breakfast 'at home', packed snacks, toured...then found good dining each evening.
Our daughter was just hired for her first job in DC. She said yesterday she was homesick when she went by Joel's apartment and we were no longer there. This was one of our best family vacations. Thanks, Joel.
Response from Joel:
Thanks very much for the nice review, Kathleen. The feeling is definitely mutual!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Joel was a great at communicating logistics before and during my visit. Very helpful and friendly, he had wonderful recommendations for delightful brunch and coffee shops nearby. The studio is in a great location--just a few blocks away from the happenin' 14th street and the Dupont Circle metro station.
Joel was a gracious host and the room was convenient, comfortable, and clean. I had a perfect stay and would definitely consider booking again next time. Max the cat is a sweet bonus.
The property is as advertised; plus it was clean, well kept/equipped, quite and everything worked well. The neighborhood offers every convenience and service I needed for my trip. Joel was the perfect host; there if I needed, and respectful of privacy. I will definitely consider this property the next time I am in DC.
Joe was extremely hospitable and his suggestions for breakfast, lunch, drinks, and dinner were spot on. The place was in perfect condition and the location was incredible.Joe was also very accommodating as far as schedule goes regarding check in and check out time and was always just a quick phone call or text away. I would definitely recommend staying here if you ever want to visit DC.
Joel was a great host. He was very flexible with arrival and departure, and the studio was great! From an ironing board to shampoo, he had it stocked with everything you could possibly need. When I head back to DC, I'll definitely be staying here.
Joel was a delightful guest, quiet and respectful of the house. We would be glad to have him back at anytime.
Joel's crew were wonderful, respectful guests. Joel was great to communicate with -- speedy and efficient and very responsible. I would recommend him as a guest to any host.
Joel was a great guest. He was respectful of the rules and clean. He was a joy to have as a guest. Highly recommend!
Joel is a great guy with a great place to stay in the central, trendy Logan Circle neighborhood of DC. I wasn't quite sure which box to check for this review since Joel is a friend, a colleague, a travel buddy and -- when my house was unavailable - a former AirBnB host.
Joel's apartment has a great open kitchen, a back deck, streaming music and movies, an excellent library of books, a private bedroom, laundry facilities and pretty much any amenity you could conceivably need during a short-term stay. Joel's place is a half block from a Whole Foods Market, Starbuck's, a wide variety of restaurants and bars, a gym, a yoga center, a wine and liquor store, and a number of service providers,including a dry cleaner, bank, hair salon, pharmacy, hardware store, etc. If you stay at Joel's, you'll never need to stray more than a block -- but if you do, you'll be conveniently located for Logan Circle, DuPont Circle, 14th and U Streets, Adams Morgan, downtown DC, the Convention Center, and "the Mall," with all its free museums.
