About Jarek Mika

We are family owned and operated. From the left meet Kate, Jarek (sister and brother) and our mom Dana.

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean (our mom cleans it, so you know it’s spotless), conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

Great for single or small family on the go

  • 5 of 5

At first I was a little surprised by the "open 2nd bedroom". It adjoins the kitchen and is separated by a curtain. But the apartment was perfect for me as a single person visiting DC and was great when I had friends come and spend the night. The apartment was always cool which was wonderful during this HOT summer. Perfect location in terms of metro, food shopping, Target and quick meals. It was a short metro ride to The Mall, Amtrak, and movies. Uber was never more than 5 minutes away.

Great location, comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property was very good. The proximity to the metro was great. The place itself was really clean and comfortable. The only things keeping it from 5 stars in my opinion are the neighbors above us were pretty loud a couple of nights and the wireless only worked in half the house. Neither of them is a deal breaker as long as you're prepared for it. I'd certainly consider staying here again.

great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a great place. Wonderful location, close to metro system, grocery store, restaurants and target. Good accommodations- having a washer and dryer was wonderful and WiFi worked as promised. The king size bed was very low to the floor and hard to get out of for someone with arthritis. Also, no matter what light switch we tried - we could not get our outdoor entry light to come on - 2nd bathroom was also missing a light bulb. We were happy with rental but were disappointed that neighborhood did have some trash blowing around. All things considered - still a nice stay.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for our DC trip. Spacious, two large bedrooms (one being open to the living room). There are number of great restaurants around the corner, as well as the Metro and the grocery stores.

Owners were great to deal with and fast to respond to our questions. Would definitely recommend.
