The apartment was well furnished and comfortable with plenty of natural light. The location was perfect for us--close to both Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights. The building is clean, quiet and secure.
Grace was very helpful. She responded quickly to our inquiry, provided us with a pack n play for our infant daughter, and made sure we were comfortable after check-in. We really enjoyed our and stay and would highly recommend this apartment to others.
I had a great time in the appartment of Pheabe.
Not only was the apartment great but her hospitality was amazing as well. Good people do still exist! I would defenitely recommend going there and I would be more then happy to come again!
Grace was great---I had my renters stay at her place. All worked wonderfully!
We stayed in this 2-bedroom apartment for a week, while attending a work conference at the nearby (15 min walk) Hilton hotel. The rooms are true to the photographs and we had a good stay. The place is clean and well decorated, and has all the amenities we needed. Would happily recommend to others.
My family and I stayed in Pheabe's cute apartment for 3 nights while exploring DC. It was a wonderful stay. Pheabe was so accommodating - she met us earlier than usual for check-in, and when we arrived, had the kitchen stocked with waters, juice and coffee for us. The apartment itself was in a great, safe building in a perfect location. It was a fairly short walk to the metro (which we used exclusively to get around in DC), and we found some delicious restaurants down the street (we LOVED Perry's). I would just mention that the street noise below could be a little noisy at night, however we were so exhausted at the end of the day that it didn't bother us too much.
Overall, it was a wonderful stay and I would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Pheabe!
The stay at Grace's Elegant 1 BR apartment was great. The flat is conveniently located, with a bus stop going to downtown DC right at the door, grocery stores, dry cleaners, pharmacy, banks, mobile telephony and electronics shops 2 to 3 blocks away, right above 18th St very diverse restaurants and exciting evening dine-out venues. The ride to downtown takes about 15 to 20 min at peak hours, less when the traffic is light.
Beyond the place, I have found Grace and her family to be extremely helpful and attentive to my needs. They provided plenty of advice on how to navigate Washington DC and helped me find a more permanent place to settle in. Coming from overseas, I have spent a month at their flat while looking for my final home and enjoyed it very much.
I had a wonderful experience staying for 3 weeks in Grace's beautiful serene apartment. Grace was truly a pleasure to meet and very easy to communicate with throughout my stay and helpful with any questions about the area. From the extremely comfortable Tempur-pedic bed, to the convenient washer/dryer and spacious organized walk-in closet - I was definitely spoiled!! Very convenient location to neighborhood stores, the National Zoo and Rock Creek Park bike/running trails, yoga studio, bus stops/metro....you name it. I would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Grace, for everything!
All the Best, Jo
This elegant 1BR was beautifully furnished and located in a central location near both Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights. The building is very clean and private. And I loved that the apartment came equipped with towels, linens, kitchen things, cable, and wifi.
The host Grace was very prompt in her communication and sweet. She gave us our privacy the entire stay. I highly recommend staying here.
The "Elegant 1 BR 6mins from Whitehouse" hosted by "Grace Williams" was exactly as advertised and looks every bit as bright and clean as in the photos. My hosts thoughtfully, promptly and generously responded to my requests. They were friendly but also allowed me my privacy. The apartment is very quiet with a nice view, and only a short walk to the grocery, restaurants and coffee shops. Most importantly to me it was only an easy 10 min walk to the National Zoo where I was working for a month. My only complaint (no fault of my hosts) was that the building management did not turn on the AC until near 7 May and we had had some hot weather already by then. The apartment, though, has plenty of big windows and the breeze through the apartment was fine.
What a fantastic apartment!! It is perfectly located for walking or metro and is quite spacious for DC. Pheabe was fantastic!! We will definitely be back.
Grace was a great guest. Unfortunately, I had a family emergency and wasn't able to be there for the entire stay, but when I returned the house was in good condition.
Phoebe Grace and her husband Layne are great. They are veteran airbnb-ers so they know the ropes. Although I didn't get to meet with them very much during their stay, I sensed immediately that they are warm and caring people. They were courteous, respectful, clean, and quiet. I hope to have them stay with me again!
