The Management Company purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why The Management Company chose Northwest Washington
I purchased this home because of the residential neighborhoood with shopping, entertainment and the metro train within a 2 minute walk. Within only one city-block, there is a supermarket open from 6am until 11pm. There are bicycle rentals directly in front of the grocery store and over 25 restaurants. There is a Yogurt store, a Vegan Store, IHOP, Five Guys, Pete's Pizza, Pot Bell, Ruby Tuesdays, Panda Express, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Subway and other eateries. The Gala Theatre provides live stage entertainment, the Washington Sports and Health Club boasts an Olympic Size indoor pool and the METRO Train takes you to most all the tourist places. The Washington Dance Institute is also in the neighborhood. To the west of the property are sidewalk cafes/bars. Some of the many stores nearby are Marshalls, Staples, FedEX, Best Buys, Radio Shack, Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond. There are famous neighborhoods nearby (within 2-5 miles) like Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, and Georgetown. The historic 'U' street corridor, known for its great jazz and blues artists, is located about two (2) miles south of this property. This area is also located in a bike friendly zone. In addition to the bike rentals in this neighborhood, bikes are readily available throughout the city at both uptown and downtown locations and if you desire to ride the bikes back to the VRBO, you may store the bikes, temporarily in the yard or in the very large hallways of this home.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment home is conveniently located on a quiet residential street and within a 2 minute walk to the 'Columbia Heights' Metro (train system). I encourage travel by bus, train, taxi, bike or by walking. METRO is highly encouraged because it is only a two to five minutes walk away from the home. Further, the Metro takes you directly to The Mall, The White House, The Kennedy Center, the Spy Museum, The Washington Monument, The Smithsonian, The National Portrait Gallery, The Newseum and many other places. The METRO also takes you to Maryland and Virginia. The home is tastefully decorated with high quality linens, flat screen television and a DVD player. There is COMCAST wireless internet access. There is an ironing board, an iron, umbrella, shopping cart for your groceries, hair dryers, toiletries, china ware, silverware, periodicals and loads of other accessories. The home includes a kitchen, a sitting room, a large dresser, two large wardrobe closets, a safe, a night stand and a full tub and shower.

During the middle of the night, water began streaming from ceiling onto the bed. Property manager eventually responded. Bedding (which was soaked through) was changed. Ceiling water damage was not.
Front door (to street) is old & difficult to unlock & lock. Also didn’t seem very tight or secure.
Otherwise, apartment & building were very clean & attractive.
There was a leak caused by an enormous amount of rain and it soak the bed.
Mattress and sheets were replaced immediately and the incident never happened again after that night .
But the guest says that the issue was never resolved.
We do not have a leaky roof.
We had the roof person go up and take a look.
It was excessive rain that could be contained in the gutter .
We have had similar downpours in recent week and the issue has not reoccurred.
The gutters have been cleared if any debris and leaves .
The management company never sent me the check in door access code until I called them the first night of my stay. They also did not respond to my question a week prior about parking.
2 bedroom apartment in nice neighborhood
Nice location and clean apartment. However the only bathroom was through 2nd bedroom so privacy may be an issue. We made it work, though. Also, when exiting front door it was hard to get door locked. Manager said he would fix the strike plate for deadbolt so that is probably not an issue. Location and cleanliness outweighed all for us. Recommended with this input.
Enjoy this home
Great location, great owners
We enjoyed our trip! We had a little issue with the AC unit, but the owners were quick to respond and very helpful! It was clean and comfortable. My only complaint (which the owners have no control over) is the upstairs people are super noisy and you hear everything.
Good location / Bad experience with management
While the location and unit were what we needed for our stay, we arrived and the unit had not been cleaned. Towels were laying out, sheets still undone, and no trash was taken out. We engaged the management company to get a cleaner there ASAP to prepare the unit as it was supposed to be, and their first answer was that we could cancel with 100% of our refund. We were already there -- cancelling was not an option. Ultimately it took about 2 hours to get the unit cleaned.
The management company agreed to refund us the cleaning fee for our trouble, and a month later, that has still not happened. I have followed up through VRBO and off line to recoup that commitment,(which they made in writing), and they have ignored it.
You can't beat the location, but be weary of a manager who was not truthful with us and has not resolved this issue. I do not recommend.
