Minimum age of primary renter:25
In general i've stayed with several of your properties managed by evolve and I find they need some repairs and deep cleaning. They are always just a bit dingy. In this case paint was peeling on some walls, everything was dark and the decor was a bit depressing. The stairs to the second floor were quite difficult for my 82 year old mother and that was not adequately explained. And three bedrooms with only one bath was also not understood in the ad for this home. The 2nd bath was at the far back of the house on the lower level and not at all easy to access.
Wish it could be five star
The property is charming and comfortable, well appointed and greatly situated. It very comfortably accommodated 5 adults.
BUT, I agree with some earlier reviews, the entire place needs a professional deep cleaning. Given the owner took the obvious care he did in decorating and creating a comfortable space, it’s a shame not to spend the money to have the place sparkling clean. Because of that issue, as much as we liked everything I don’t think I would be a repeat customer.
We stayed at this property with another couple while visiting DC. We found it completely suitable for our purposes, and consistent w/ online description. It is an older, renovated property, but well modernized. It was clean, and while initially had a bit of a musty odor, once the AC was on for a while, that went away. The kitchen was fairly well equipped, but could use an upgrade of cooking utensils and a few more microwavable dishes. The downstairs bath is small, and oddly, the commode was not firmly secured to the floor, permitting some lateral movement. Worked fine tho. Pictures show the stairs to upstairs bedroom, however, we were struck by how steep and narrow we found them. There are railings, but still this would not be a good choice for anyone w/ mobility or balance issues, in my opinion. The "master" bedroom is big enough for the king bed, but set at an angle, and the headboard, such as it is, is not attached to the bed or braced against a wall, so provides limited support while reading in bed. Plus there are no reading lamps in that bedroom. Mattress was comfy. We found AC kept the temp very comfortable. We even had to turn it down some.
We did have a minor problem when the mircowave circuit breaker tripped, but we reported the problem and it was quickly fixed with no imposition on us.
Overall, we felt like this was a good location: there are good restaurants and a large grocery nearby, within walking distance actually. The bus line is only a short walk. The neighborhood was very quiet and, we felt, safe.
We felt this was a good value and were happy with our choice.
Great Weekend Trip to Washington DC
This is a very cute townhouse in a good location.
It had plenty of room for my husband and I and our daughter.
We brought her to DC for a quick weekend before she moves away from home. She had never been and loves history and memorials. We loved being fairly close to all of the sites.
The house had everything necessary for a quick stay.
It is well furnished and the kitchen is pretty well stocked although we did not cook there. We came back to the house each afternoon to rest and clean up and change before heading out again. Perfect for our weekend!
It was satisfactory
Needs a little TLC
Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The location was pretty good, the home was quaint & overall clean just could use a good deep cleaning & a little TLC but would definitely stay again. Comfortable for all of us, being a group of adults. Wish we had more time. Had everything we could need for meals even though we didn’t cook. Check-in process was easy & quick.
