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.
The place is very clean, large and warm in winter, with plenty of light. Flexible with check in and out. Joel is a wonderful host! He provides guests with fruit, tea, milk and juice, to ensure his guests have that extra special, home comfort feeling when chilling after a long day on the town. The location is in the heart of DC and made it easy to get around and see many of the arts, sights, and shopping areas. I recommend staying at Joel's place year round and will definately be booking in on my next trip.
Superb location, a tranquil, restful, secure place to work and a perfect base for my busy schedule in DC. I was warmly welcomed by Max and Joel. And, learned how to carve a Halloween pumpkin!
We enjoyed staying in Joels appartment. It was very clean and is located in a nice neighbourhood. Lots of places to eat, get coffee and a wholefoods market if you want to stay in and cook. All the sights are close.
Joel responds very quickly if you text him a question and we should have taken his offer to help us find a parkingplace. We parked in colonial parking across the street from the wholefoods, but it would have been far cheaper, if we drove down to 15th. There are numerous parkinggarages there which are cheaper than colonial.
All in all we had a very nice stay.
Very comfortable room with natural light. Joel is a gracious host with a fascinating background.
Joel is a wonderful host! We had booked well ahead, and were caught by the government shutdown.Joel had great ideas for things we could do, posted restaurant and coffee shop suggestions, and made himself available for any help and ideas we needed. Our friends in DC were so impressed with the studio and location that they are going to recommend it their visiting friends and business associates. When the shutdown is over we will be back!
Joel is the perfect host. Check in was a breeze. The room was just as described. The neighborhood is one of the prettiest in DC. There were a number of shops and restaurants nearby and the Metro at DuPont Circle was five blocks.
Very nice studio! Comfy, with everything you need! Lots of restuarants and grocery store in walking distance. Joel is very helpful and friendly.
Lovely experience in a nicely appointed studio, quiet with no street noise at all. A block away is a whole foods market, hardware store, and a CVS pharmacy. Restaurants too numerous to mention in the immediate area. Three blocks to the red line metro at Dupont Circle. Unfortunately, we missed Joel, seems he had a prior engagement in Kenya. Would definitely recommend a stay of days/weeks. Ed H
Joel's place is awesome. Right in the center of DC with easy access to many great amenities including whole foods, restaurants, and night life. The actual space was also very comfortable. Joel has some amazing art from his travels which really add a unique feel to his home.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to meet Joel because he was abroad. However, he checked in several times during my stay to make sure everything was good.
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.
