Why sally obrien chose Washington DC

We are within easy walking distance to the Mall, the White House, and the Lincoln Memorial. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. You don't need a car in Foggy Bottom so we advise guests to leave their car at a suburban Metro station or if you have a car, to park in one of the nearby commercial lots

Please let us know when you have vacated the apartment. We don’t ask anything else of our guests but you are welcome to remove the sheets from the bed(s) you have used and leave them on a pile on the bed or in the washer. Some guests also like to put all of the towels they have used in one pile. If you have used dishes you are welcome to rinse them and load them into the dishwasher. We will pick up the trash after you depart and take care of the recycling. Occasionally some guests like to throw out some trash during their stay and for that purpose have utilized the community trash and recycling containers located on the east side of 24th and I Streets. Thanks again for staying with us.

Great place to stay. Stairs give a lower rating after the seventh trip up them.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice. It was clean. Only problem was figuring out how to turn on the air conditioning on. The problem was quickly fixed.

Small but location ROCKED

  • 4 of 5

Apartment functionality for a family of five was tight at times. We brought an air mattress and was able to squeeze it into the common area. The location of the apartment was perfect! It was so close to Foggy Bottom Metro Station, George Washington University and the Kennedy Center Shuttle. We used the Metro every day of our visit. The apartment kept us away from noise and the crowds. It was a quiet and quaint neighborhood, and we really felt like locals! There is a lot of history in this area.

Cute, funky apartment in an 1881 house.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I enjoyed our stay very much. The location was convenient to the airport, subway (Sally had left metro cards that we simply put on as much money as we needed) and within walking distance to grocery store and many eateries. We appreciated that the bedrooms were at either end of the apartment so we each had privacy. The apartment was neat and clean and in a lovely area.

Great location and apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed for a weekend in March 2017, and had a great stay. The apartment is in an amazing location, walkable to Georgetown, the monuments, and the Kennedy Center. For anyone looking to have access to good running routes, this apartment is a winner - less than half a mile from Rock Creek Parkway, with easy access at the Kennedy Center. The owner was super responsive, and accommodated our request for a late check out on Sunday since we had a late train. We would definitely stay again!

Wonderful Location- great for college visits!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the second floor apartment. Unfortunately, when we arrived at 5PM the apartment hadn't been cleaned. I called Sally(owner) and she was very apologetic and arrived right away and cleaned it (whilst we walked the two blocks to Whole Foods and got provisions.) One bedroom is oriented toward the back of the house, it has a flat screen tv and the bed was comfortable. I slept great! (I always travel with a white noise machine so I'm unable to give observations regarding noise.) The second bedroom faces the street, my 19 year old had no complaints about this room. There is a washer and dryer, full sized fridge, plenty of towels, dishes and utensils. There was a Keurig coffee maker too. There's also a tv in the small sitting area. As others have noted, it's two short blocks to the metro, fifteen minutes to Georgetown and a safe thirty minute walk to FDR, MLK and Korean War Memorials.

**It's also very easy and inexpensive to fly into BWI - catch the B30 bus (7$) to Greenbelt Station (Branch Ave) to L'enfant Plaza Station Blue line (Franconia/Springfield) to Foggy Bottom Station. I couldn't find a metro card machine at BWI, we used exact cash for the initial B30 bus. On the return trip I used the SmarTrip Card all the way.

I will definitely stay here again in the future! Thanks Sally!
