Maya's apartment is in a fantastic area. We arrived around 6:00pm on a Friday to kids playing all over the neighborhood and people walking their dogs. It is definitely a very safe and family friendly area.
The apartment was great and very toddler friendly for my almost 2 year old. There were many great, open-ended toys for him to play with!. The bed is comfortable for a sleeper sofa but it's firm compared to what we're used to. It was big enough for me and my toddler to sleep comfortably in.
We had a little check in mix up but it all worked out. We walked and got pizza at Angelicos and came back to be let in. There were several little places to eat in walking distance which was very helpful.
We will definitely consider staying with Maya again when we come back to DC next year for Genital integrity Awareness Week.
This Airbnb apartment was in a perfect location for us, just a few blocks from our daughter, in a safe, friendly neighborhood. We were within walking distance from public transportation, the zoo and several restaurants.
Our host, Maya was welcoming and made us feel at home without invading our space.
This was a great place to stay with plenty of space, but would only recommend it for someone who is planning on rising early. The ceiling is not soundproof and the mornings were quite noisy between the dogs and family starting out their day in the house above. Also be aware that you will be entering the apartment from the alley behind the house. If you are traveling alone without a car, you might feel a little ill at ease entering the apartment late at night.
All that being said, we would not hesitate to stay here again.
Maya's place was a fantastic location for me, as my co-worker was staying with friends a few doors down. I had a great stay. The place is uniquely designed, very nice to be in, and Maya goes the extra mile to have it truly feel like a bed and breakfast (with snacks and a nice guide to the neighborhood, really nice). It is true that there is a very thin floor above you, which made me sad because it sounded like they were having so much fun up there! But sleeping hours is perfectly peaceful. And it's a nice bed.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Family Friendly! This was our second stay with this host, and we will be returning!
We enjoyed our stay greatly! Great hosts! We will return!
Maya was great! She met us at the door even though we were arriving quite late and showed us around. The place was very cool and clean - definitely a paradise for two little ones after a long drive. Thank you, Maya - we enjoyed our stay :).
We stayed for three nights with our two-year-old and we would definitely recommend it. There were a lot of toys for him to play with, and more space and fewer breakable things than you would find in any hotel room. Our son really enjoyed the children-sized furniture and the big bath. The neighbourhood is nice and there is public transport and restaurants within walking distance. Maya was a very pleasant host and easy to correspond with.
The only downside is that you do get noise from dogs and people walking around upstairs, so it would probably not be ideal for anyone wanting to go to sleep early or wake up late.
This was the best airbnb deal we've found yet - Maya was SUPER prepared for our 2 year old son. She met us at the door and was very sweet and very helpful, allowed us to check in early on a Friday and late on a Sunday. The private space in the basement was tidy, spacious, stocked with toys and child-sized furniture, and all of the things we could need. A comfortable pull-out queen bed, a toddler-sized air mattress, places to read while our son napped, a beautiful enormous bathroom, and a kitchenette space. The neighborhood is beautiful and was so convenient. Although the nearest metro station is a good 25 minute walk, there are buses that would have been easier had we not had a stroller, but it's a great area to walk. We won't stay anywhere else now that we know about Maya's home!
Had great stay. Quiet neighbourhood, but relatively easy to get to all the sites as the metro is 10-15 mins away.
We had the whole basement to ourselves with our own entrance and private parking right at the entrance - perfect!
Maya was a very nice and warm host and we felt very welcome.
The only downside is that you can hear people and pets walking around on the floor directly above, but they did a very good job of being quiet during the night, so not a problem.
My mom and I had a wonderful stay with Maya. She was very responsive and had a great set-up in her basement apartment. A mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker helped us get our day started! I would absolutely recommend staying with Maya--especially for families as the layout was very kid-friendly.
