I received a fantastic welcome from Will and introduction to the apartment and the local area. The apartment was in an excellent location providing me easy access to the key central locations for client meetings. The apartment was also very conveniently located for Union station.
The hosts clearly care about the comfort and enjoyment of their guests which was reflected in many personal touches and greatly appreciated.
Will was very easy to communicate with and was there to welcome me when I arrived and acquaint me with the apartment. He was friendly and very helpful with suggestions about places to eat and transportation. I recommend the Washington Firehouse Restaurant just across North Capitol St. The Big Bear Cafe is about a five-minute walk in Bloomingdale near the Metro. The neighborhood is young and vibrant and the people are friendly. Make sure you acquaint yourself with public transportation. This is very close to the Capitol if you know the bus and Metro lines to take. I highly recommend it.
Will went above and beyond to make sure we were familiar with the house and the community. The space was absolutely spotless, quiet, and comfortable. Our flight got delayed by 3 hours putting us into the house at 2 am which makes this even more impressive.
The apartment was exactly as advertised. Not a 5-star hotel, but very comfortable. While I was just there with my fiance, this place is perfect for a small family.
Will greeted us despite us getting in at 1 am. He provided really helpful information and a bottle of wine. Having a few snacks, water, and juice in the fridge was great after a long drive.
One of the best perks about this apartment is having DVRs in both the living room and bedroom.
The one drawback was the water pressure. The water had to be turned on super hot to get good pressure. A minor thing. Overall, it was a really good experience.
Arrived April 6 -10... Myself, wife and 3 daughters ages 12,11 and 7 for Easter break... Apartment was exactly as discribed. Extremely clean and stocked... Water and juice in fridge, shampoo in shower, washing machine detergent... Also nice bottle of red wine for me and my wife.... Neighborhood is up and coming and safe. Found great bar restaurant called Station 12 which is an old firehouse only a block away... Metro is two blocks and takes you quickly downtown to all the sites of DC.... Also found UBER to be reasonable and an easier way to travel with the family.... Will and Myra where get hosts and meet us at the apartment to show us around. Parking pass was provided to park on the street... Parking was easy and we never mover the car... We would definitely recommend their apartment.... This was our first time using AIRBNB and would definitely do it again.... Kids love their trip to Washington DC...
What a great set up for our family of 5! Private, large bedroom with king bed for my husband and I and a family room with 3 comfortable pull out beds for the kids! Great kitchen, plenty of living space and nice bath. Very convenient location with easy access to Metro and some nice restaurants. We had an absolute blast!! Great hosts: thoughtful, friendly and helpful!! We'll be back!!
My husband and nephew and I had an excellent stay in Russ and Will's apartment. It was spotlessly clean, thoughtfully and comfortably furnished with plenty of space to recuperate after very busy days exploring DC. Will was informative and available to us if we needed him. There was good sightseeing information in the apartment and it was convenient to some tasty restaurants ( The Firehouse, Big Bear Cafe, Bacio Pizza). The three TVs were a big hit with all of us since it was college basketball time. We used uber to get around and really enjoyed being in a neighborhood and not a touristy area.
Stayed with my family of 5, 2 young kids included and we had a great time. Apartment is very clean and had all the amenities we needed plus more. Rooms were spacious and again extremely clean. 2 bathrooms for 2 bedrooms are very convenient when trying to get out in a timely fashion. A couple of blocks away there are good restaurants and cafes. Location was great for us. Kids loved walking to the Metro station everyday (3-4 blocks). Hosts were great, available 24/7. Had everything ready for us when we got there (including a bottle of wine...) and showed us the way around the apartment and all the amenities. Wifi and parking pass included also.
Overall we had a great experience (and the kids loved the place too). They want to go back and stay there again. Highly recommended.
This was probably my best airbnb experience so far. Will and Russell were extremely flexible and put up with four adults plus a toddler with smile and ease. Nothing was a problem and they were just a phone call/text away. They made us feel welcome and at home.
The apartment was nice, clean, quiet with tons of sweet little perks, and a very convenient location to public transport, grocery store, and a cozy cafe.
If I ever am in the area again, I will definitely try to stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay while in DC. Will met us at the apt and gave us some great tips and directions. The snacks and drinks were a very nice touch and came in handy on our dbl-decker bus tour! The unit was beautifully decorated, clean and well-appointed - perfect for my husband, myself and two kids! We drove from Philly, so the parking pass was key. This neighborhood is shifting, but felt very safe. We enjoyed delicious take-out from DC Smokehouse, brunch at Big Bear Cafe and dinner at Washington Firehouse. The Metro stop was a short walk and one stop from Union Stn. A perfect 'home base' from our DC Spring Break adventure. Thank you for your hospitality!
Russel was a very ideal guest. I actually never met him because he had a quick stay and he was rarely at the apartment. But there was good communication and he was very clean. He's welcome anytime!
Will & Russell are our neighbors and friends in downtown Washington, DC. They have a beautiful home and property, and keep it clean and well-maintained. Their newly renovated English basement apartment is a comfortable and well-furnished space, with all the amenities you need, and just steps away from Metro and all the downtown attractions and events. Will & Russell are very kind, generous, and helpful hosts - we wholeheartedly recommend them and know you'll enjoy your stay.
