Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Joe's apartment was absolutely wonderful and his hospitality was even better! He went above and beyond to make us comfortable and make sure we had everything we needed. He was the definition of a perfect host! The apartment was exactly as pictured and EXTREMELY clean. I really can't emphasize enough how pleased I was with all of the little ammenities that were provided in the apartment, such as a hairdryer and extra soaps in the bathroom and a water filter pitcher, coffee, and condiments in the kitchen! One of my original concerns with visiting DC was traveling the city, but this apartment is quite literally just steps away from one of the metro stops, and the metro took us everywhere we needed to go! We were also within walking distance of food and entertainment. We walked to both Ben's Chili Bowl and the U Street Music Hall during our stay. I couldn't have been happier with our stay here, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy and convenient stay in the D.C. area.

Very cute, enough space for me and the kids

  • 5 of 5

I did a DC trip with my 3 kids and this place was perfect. So much cheaper than local hotels and having a full kitchen really kept costs down. The place is clean enough. There are some cobwebs and the chair had some stains but overall it was fine. I am a neat freak so most people would be very happy with this home. The kitchen was very clean and had the simple things needed to make a meal and eat. The only thing I could not find was measuring spoons. I had to give my kid meds the one night and could not find a tablespoon anywhere. The home is on a very nice tree lined street. On the way in I saw lots of mom's walking strollers so I knew the area would be ok. I felt safe walking to the metro during the day but took uber's if we were out late. The neighborhood, unfortunately, was tagged with curse words and it was everywhere. We are pretty conservative and my kids do know how to read so it was a bit annoying seeing the F-word constantly, but that is not the hosts fault. Hospital is very close by. I was able to use spot hero to get a very good rate for parking there for 3 days. Yummy home made doughnut store right around the corner. The bedroom was just big enough for us fit a queen and twin air mattress in on the floor. The bed is clean and very comfortable. I always bring my pillow everwhere I go but forgot it on this trip. Thankfully the pillow was also very comfortable. Not super thick like the hotel ones (who can sleep on that???). Plenty of towels in the bathroom and the washer/dryer was a nice touch but we never used it. Owner is very receptive and lives upstairs which is nice. He has a dog which barked when we walked outside the window but otherwise I never heard it. Even though this apartment is below the owners living space, he is very quiet. This is a very good home base for seeing all the memorials/museums. The metro stop (subway) is very close and will get you anywhere you want to go. I never bothered with the buses but there is a stop close by as well. Great rental!

Perfect location for our DC vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this DC garden apartment, owned by Joe Thomas. Everything we needed was waiting for us from the moment we arrived. The metro is less than two blocks away; Trader Joe’s and great restaurants are within walking distance.

We recommend this apartment to any couple visiting Washington DC.

Perfect location, spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

My mum, sister and little brother stayed at Joes paradise during our visit to Washington DC. It was just such a lovely atmosphere and so close to everything, on our first day we walked to the White House which had only taken 40 minutes. There is also a near by metro which gets you anywhere in a flash. The apartment was super clean and Joe was very accomodating to all our needs. The roll out bed was super comfortable and the pillows just amazing. Overall it was a magical stay and I can’t thank you enough.
