Rosario is a great host. She is very helpful and responsive if anything comes up. Her place is nice and very comfortable. We were there two weeks. It is close to the metro and shopping, but on a nice quiet street near a large park and within walking distance of the National zoo. The kitchen is well equipped and the pictures of her place are accurate.
Rosario's place is great, I stayed there for a month and a half after moving to DC from across the country. The area is beautiful, right next to Rock Creek Park and the Zoo, Saturday farmer's market, and very convenient to get downtown on the bus. The apartment is fully equipped with a kitchen, internet, TV and laundry facilities.
Rosario made me feel at home and was very responsive. She was also understanding when I arrived a few days late after getting delayed on the road on the way to DC! I'd recommend this place to friends.
This is a great apartment in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington DC. Within a few blocks of buses, Rock Creek Park and the Zoo, fun restaurants, a Saturday farmers market. The apartment is very calm, super clean and spacious. The hosts were very easy and friendly. Highly recommended.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Rosario's on a quiet street in Mount Pleasant, just a few blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro. On our arrival, she showed us around the apartment and gave us a pass for unrestricted street parking. And she quickly responded to meet our needs before, during, and after our stay. Rosario made us feel very welcome and, at the same time, allowed us privacy. To access the apartment, you need to be able to navigate stairs up to the house from the street.
While we have traveled extensively over the years, this was our 1st experience with airbnb, and it was a good decision on our part. We found Rosario to be the ultimate host. She and her mother are quite remarkable people. Perhaps the one thing that stood out to us was Rosario's prompt responses. While there were a few very minor issues (such as how to operate the cable television) Rosario always responded to very quickly. I was in customer service for many years of my career and Rosario clearly understands customer service from a renter's prospective.
Concerning the neighborhood: It was quite lovely and every property seem very well maintained. Folks in the area were all friendly and always willing to answer our questions. The closest metro station was a convenient 15 minute walk away-and the walk there was quite easy. There ware also metro busses much closer, but our experience with the DC traffic led us to believe the metro (rail service) was frequently quicker-and the entire system is very easy o go to understand.
The property: Rosario has described the apartment accurately. We found the space quite adequate for the two us for the six weeks we were there. The apartment was well stocked with necessary items (coffee maker, cooking items, dishes, flatware, etc.). The apartment is quiet (including the bedroom-which had a queen-sized bed).
In conclusion: While we have since moved t a larger apartment in the DC area, we would have no concerns about renting with Rosario again. She is a warm, friendly young lady and it was a pleasure interacting with her and her mother. We would rate this property as an "A".
Rosario was very welcoming and responded pretty well to our needs.
I was disappointed, however, in the accomodation. Most of the furniture was children size. The sofa seat was less than 12" off the floor and I had to get on all fours to stand up. The kitchen was very spartan. We only cooked breakfasts there, which worked ok for us, but I would not have wanted to cook dinners because the cookware was very limited. There was also a slight musty smell in the apartment.
We really enjoyed staying at Rosario's. Lovely apartment, quiet and comfortable. Good bus and metro connections into central Washington. Nice neighbourhood, close to park and so ideal for runners (and where else could you run thro the zoo and see a panda, lions, a gorilla and a tiger, all before breakfast?).
Rosario was a perfect hostess, always on hand if we needed any help or advice.
El apartamento es precioso, comodo, confortable, limpio y con todo lujo de detalles. Es exactamente como aparece en las fotografias e incluso mejor. El barrio es perfecto, tienes justo al lado el metro, tiendas, buses, y la casa esta en unas calles muy tranquilas y seguras. Rosario es impresionante como anfitriona, ella, su hija, su madre, todos han hecho que me sintiera en una familia. No han dudado en estar pendiete de mi en todo momento y detalle. Por supuesto, no solo lo recomiendo con creces, si no, que jamas dudaria en volver a quedarme alli.
Our stay was very comfortable & convenient. The bed is very firm, which we prefer. Looking forward to staying there again in the future...thank you Rosario!
We stayed at Rosario's downstairs apartment for almost a week while we were having our condo remodeled. The condo is in a great location, and a very pleasant space, very clean and comfortable. We're local to DC, but it was fun to explore a different neighborhood during our remodelling, and we would highly recommend this place to others.
