I am an Architect and a Registered Nurse by profession.
The house is a bit small for seven people, but it is well-equipped with everything you need. Decent location to the downtown Washington area if you had a car with you. The neighborhood doesn't really make people comfortable, but it is a cheap price if that's what you are looking for the most.
So - we actually had a tremendous DC experience staying at this place and I *would* recommend it to anyone that wants to go to DC with a large group of people. I hope that my insights below will actually encourage you to consider staying here...DC can be a rough place...
Know that it's a DC townhome, so it's tight. It's also older so, just realize that. It's also a little tricky to get to if you're not familiar with the neighborhood. Study a map before hand. The GPS will tell you to take a U-turn where you can't....and don't want to - go down to the light and pull a Uie there.
The location is somewhat rough part of town but we still felt very safe there - my son and I walked (quickly) to the Safeway at 10:30p - and we went for a run in the AM and felt like we weren't in any danger - but stayed alert.
It *is super convenient* to access Capitol Hill from the property. We didn't try the Metro, but I bet it would be convenient from there. You couldn't exactly walk from the property to Capitol Hill easily - at least we couldn't see how you'd pull that off.
We would totally stay there again - we had 7 kids with us, and it was great. Thank you so much for a great stay!
Thank you sir, God bless you.
It was good at first, the only communication I had with the owner was through texting and emails. I never met him in person.
The parking was kind of tough but we did not needed since we used uber to move around.
We had a nice stay in this home! Tunde was quick to provide any assistance! The house was perfect for our needs. The parking was a nice perk. Some of us were not happy with the location as there are no good restaurants nearby. However, getting Uber was super easy from this place, so we were able to spent most of time in DC city and were able to take Uber back to this home with no issues. Overall a nice experience!
We booked this airbnb the day we checked in, and we were lucky enough that Tunde was very responsive and amenable to such a last minute reservation. We had 9 people and this house would definitely comfortably sleep 8, but anymore can get a bit crowded. The photos make the house look much bigger than it is. It is a bit rundown and not as bright/clean/new as the pictures make it seem. There were a few things that were minor inconveniences (door knob falling off of bedroom, no hot water in sink downstairs, broken tile, etc.) However, we did not have any major problems like the ones mentioned in the previous reviews.
It IS fairly close to downtown DC (10-15 minutes to the capitol area), but the neighborhood leaves a lot to be desired. It's clear that there is a definite need for the tall fence surrounding the property and the home alarm system. Parking out back is located within the fenced off property and we comfortably fit a van and an SUV, anything else would have been a much tighter fit (and required more precise parking abilities).
Tunde was one of the most accommodating hosts I've come across using AirBnb. House and pictures are 100% accurate and fit to description. Easily accommodated 10 of us and experienced no issues whatsoever. House was clean, area was quiet, parking was never an issue , everything works to description. Basically a seamless stay with no hindrances whatsoever. Not too many 4 bedroom, 4 bed houses in DC at this price so this was definitely a steal for me and would definitely stay here again . Thanks a lot Tunde !
The apartment is clean and the kitchen is fully equipped. The environment is quiet. There is also a parking space at the back of the house. We have no problem to communicate with the host.
This Airbnb was just right for our family trip of 9 to DC. All of the listings statistics were right on, there were no surprises and we all felt quite comfortable in the home and safe in the neighborhood. Great communication with our host, a great place to have a large group stay in the DC area. Thank You Tunde!
Tunde is a nice guy, he was really helpful, but his house is a little bit mass.
