The location is nice, only 10 minutes walk to Eastern Market and approximately 25 minutes to Capitol (where you can also walk to National Mall area). But some local says that the area is not very safe, better think twice to stay at this area. The Apt is very clean and nice. Julia and Kate also very responsive in communication.
I arrived at their place on midnight from NYC, as I told them before, they said it's not a problem. We haven't had a chance to had lunch and dinner in NYC and in our way to WDC, so I asked the host if they can call any delivery pizza so by the time we arrived there will be dinner, considering my parents are seniors and for the baby. It was an emergency case, I wouldn't asked that if its not that emergency. But they wouldn't do the favor, even just for a CALL. I not its not an hotel, I asked politely and again, because its emergency.
Anyway, the WORST thing that still not feel comfortable in me is probably the vomit that spread out in the closet/ bathroom. The host was having a party on the second night , the party is suppose to be fine, but considered that I have a baby, I was expecting that the host could be more sensitive about that (luckily my baby and my parents was too tired to be bothered by the loud music and loud people). I wont be too disturbed if the traveler are only me and my husband.
I also noticed that Kate wasn't very welcome at me when we met on Sunday afternoon, sorry if you feel I'm annoying. But as a host, you should think about your guest. I pay to stay at your place.
The host canceled my reservation 12 days before arrival. :(
But prior to that they were diligently answering my questions - that was helpful. :)
Great accommodation and conversations. I felt safe and comfortable staying at their place. Thank you, Julia and Kate.
Truly a recommendation for any single or couple. The home was modern and clean, with a very nice separate bath room. Felt like hotel accommodation. And the girls was great; knowledgeable about the city and how it work; pointing to some of the must see things. Would love staying with Julia and Kate again if I have the opportunity.
Excellent all the way around. Place is neat and clean, just a few minutes walk from the Potomac metro station. Lots of restaurants nearby on 8th Street, and it is also very near the famous Eastern Market.
I didn't see Julia much because she was out most of the time, but in our short chat she seemed very nice and personable. I got to see kate quite a bit more, and kate is great! Smart, funny and personable. Tip -- Try to make her laugh! She has a great laugh, very rich and rewarding.
Thank for the great stay ladies!
Kate and her friends were very friendly and easy guests. They left our place clean and Kate was on top of the communication throughout. Happy to have them again!
Julia and Kate and their three friends were great guests. It's the first hosts I've had as guests and hosts as guests are really the best guests, as they know what it is like to be a host.
Julia and Kate are both long-time friends and extremely hospitable and laid-back individuals. I have had the pleasure of spending much time with the both of them, as well as in their apartment.
On top of the great place they have, conveniently located right next to the metro, staying with them would certainly be a fun and memorable experience!
