I live in Washington, DC.
I stayed at Kari's place for almost 3 weeks and I have to say it was simply great! Usually I never leave comments or recommendations, but in this case I just have to do it. First of all Kari himself is a very obliging and friendly person, who is always willing to help you with the planning of your day or if you have any other question. Since I worked Downtown from Monday to Friday while I was here, I always went to bed and got up rather early. I could always sleep really well and it was never noisy or anything else. The room itself is really big and just offers everything you need. The bed is really comfortable and would also be big enough for more than one person. The bathroom, kitchen and living room are all very clean! I was always able cook something in the evening and eat breakfast early in the morning. The neighborhood is one of the up and coming areas of DC. From Kari's place it is a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest Metro (Columbia Heights) which takes you Downtown in about 15 minutes. The next Bus Stop is about 1 minute away and there are always buses going in every direction. The nearest supermarket is next to the Metro Station and there are a couple of grocery stores just 1-2 minutes away.
As is said, I can fully recommend staying at Kari's place - no matter if it is for a weekend trip or for an internship (as in my case).
Kari is the nicest guy in the World. The place itself is great aswell. There's everything you need, it's clean and it just works.
Really enjoyed my stay!
It was a great experience hosting Kari. Very respectful, and neat guest. Highly recommended to all hosts out there!
I was away at the time Kari visited New York but everything was perfect and communication was very good! Apartment was left clean and neat! Excellent guest!
Kari is a very nice guest, and very welcome to stay here again :)
