Het huis heeft voldoende ruimte maar is in het echt veel minder mooi als op de foto s. Het huis is dringend aan een opknapbeurt en grote schoonmaak toe.
De buurt nodigt niet echt uit om te gaan wandelen, hebben steeds de auto genomen voor verplaatsingen.
House was in perfect condition. Most of the beds were in great condition. The subway and the bus stops were a little far from the house. We enjoy our stay at the house.
Although we did not meet face to face, Tunde was very helpful and quick to respond to queries. The house was good, clean and comfortable, and the location is very near local attractions if you drive. Only minor downside is that the bathrooms are a little small. Overall, my friends and I had a good time at the house.
Although we never met face-to-face, Tunde was quick to answer our questions and get us set up and checked in. The house was in good shape, had plenty of room for all of us, and met our basic needs. The kitchen lacks some very basic utensils and accessories (strainer, pot-holders, etc..) but the appliances were in working order. The location is convenient to public transport, but is well off the tourist path. This is REAL DC, and while we never felt truly threatened we were very out of place in this neighborhood. I would not recommend staying here with children, and you absolutely don't want to be out on the streets too late. Also, despite claims to the contrary there is not a hot tub at the house.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our group had a great time staying at Tunde's house! It is located on a very quiet street and is close to public transportation and only about 15 min. by bus from Union Station. The beds were very comfortable and because it was quiet at night no one had trouble sleeping which is great when you have spent the day walking around the Smithsonian. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to someone else!
The house was okay. You can see that the host tried to make the house presentable and acceptable. As any other old house, we encountered some issues like the AC in one of our rooms on the third floor but Tunde fixed it immediately. The shower on the upstairs bathroom as well as the toilet did not work properly. The water was super hot all the time. We had to take showers in the downstairs bathroom. The kitchen was okay however it just needed some essential kitchen tools such as a strainer, plastic bowls and maybe a toaster. It was nice to have a security system in the house due to the fact that the surrounding (neighborhood) was kind of intimidating. The house is by a very busy street and there is a lot of movement, especially at night. Again this is out of the host's control. Our first night will be forever in our thoughts. There was a lot of commotion outside the house that kept us up until 1AM in the morning. The host Tunde was always very polite and respectful. He tried his best to fix some of the issues we encountered at his place. Some of the other issues were out of his reach.
Good : Tunde was very responsive and the apt was in a very good shape as advertised.
Bad : When we first arrived in DC, our party of 8 took 2 cabs from the union station, Both the cab drivers thought we were crazy to rent the apt in this neighborhood. At first we were cautious, but then later in the evening we saw somethings around the house which we were totally uncomfortable with. My family with kids were so scared that i immediately booked residence inn for the night and moved my family to the hotel at 2 pm.
I am not sure if this is an exception but i would definitely advice folks with kids and family to avoid this place.
No air conditioning, chipped paint, garbage piled as high as the back fence!! The topper was went to make coffee the first morning and there was moldy coffee grounds in the top of the coffee maker. Most windows had no screens. Beds were comfortable when it finally cooled down.
Nice place, well maintained, we were a big family and and found Tunde's place very welcoming. He was available all the time we needed him and very very understanding, he made us feel at home and he made sure we have all the necessary basics in the house. Good place to stay if you're looking for peace of mind.
