Our neighborhood is located just up from DuPont Circle, right up on the Hill leading down to the White House and the National Mall.

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, 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 quiet condo!!!!! 2 blocks away: Metro, grocery store, Target, Starbucks

  • 5 of 5

Such a great condo. Cooking was easy, grilled steaks on the deck one night. The manager was a text away for the wifi password and any other questions I had.

Neighborhood was quiet and we felt safe. We would recommend this place and would definitely stay here w our family again.

The home was as advertised. It was perfect for our girlfriend getaway.

  • 4 of 5

The house was well laid out. One thing to note is that you will need to climb stairs in and outside the home. We found it to be charming and well supplied. Even when we had a problem with a toilet Jarek was there in minutes to take care of it. We also loved the restaurant he recommended in the neighborhood. Parking as almost anywhere in DC was a challenge but once parked found the Metro nearby.

If we go to DC again I would rent it again.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Two words: Stay Here. This was a really comfortable apartment which was spotlessly clean. We didn't know what to expect from the neighborhood, but it was lovely and oh-so-convenient to everything. How nice it was to have a grocery store, Target, the Metro stop, and even a health club that accepts day visitors within a few minutes' walk. And yet, we did not find it too noisy or congested. It had all the best aspects of staying in the city. If I could change one thing, it would be to ask the owners to please put up some towel racks in the bathrooms! No place for the 7 of us to hang our towels. Otherwise, it had every comfort and all the spaciousness we could have hoped for. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Perfect for a larger family - clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. We rented this space and my brother, his family, and my mom, rented the space above in the same brownstone. Both homes were impeccably furnished (IKEA) for a rental and had everything we needed. The metro stop was a short walk away and the neighborhood was safe. We enjoyed the eclectic and diverse population surrounding us. We went to the nearby Catholic church for mass on Sunday and were warmly welcomed. We bought a variety of fruit and handmade crafts in the outdoor market hosted after church. Both properties were very clean and well maintained. I'd highly recommend either of these properties.

Best Location for your visit to our nations capital

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great time in Washington DC. Staying in this well kept town home was the best choice as the location to the metro, neighborhood dining and shops gave our group the opportunity to experience all of the national sites very easily. We enjoyed having great dining locations just a few steps away in a very picturesque urban environment. We found the listing to be as stated and in good condition. Everyone got a great nights sleep, beds had very comfortable mattress & pillows. Property was very clean and well maintained. Would stay again.

Nice , Clean , Well Designed and Highly Fucntional - Very pleased we stayed - Much better than Hotel

  • 5 of 5

Owners have done a very nice job in designing the Apartment. Everything was great. Very close to great restaurants, perfect location for grocery shopping at Giant. Parking was easy and the area was very safe and friendly. Great access to the Metro Station for Columbia Heights. This really is a perfect location and a good value for a group of 3 to 6. 20 minutes to the National Mall on the Metro. Easy traffic while driving when comparing to other cities. The owners have done a very nice job with this property and our stay was a great stay.

Thank You guys ..
