Overall the rental property was nice - 3.5 stars

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the convenient location to the Metro, shopping and restaurants, and had a great time exploring D.C.

However, there were several deficiencies which should have been rectified before our arrival: There was no second egress from any floor in case of fire; the back door in the kitchen had no stairs to the ground, and the exterior door in the second floor bedroom was sealed shut. Low water flow from kitchen faucet, broken and burned out dining chandelier bulbs were fixed promptly by the maintenance man. Thank you! No kitchen dish or hand towels and no hangers in any closet (we had to buy them); no towel bars or hooks in the full bathrooms. Master bath had only one towel ring for 3 people and the Jacuzzi was inoperable. Fabric on the chaise lounge chairs was dirty; the kitchen in general was not clean; floors and baseboards were dusty. Dining table chairs are too large for the space and the seats need to be replaced since there is no support and you sink into a hollow. The third floor bathroom door didn’t latch or lock; wall paint is peeling; and no window coverings for privacy on the fourth floor. We would consider renting again if the problems are fixed.

Owner's Response: As always we really try to do our best to provide nice clean homes and good customer service. So immediately upon hearing from our valued customer, we responded. We have Housekeepers and Maintenance Men who assist us in addressing any/all concerns of our valued guests and our Support is only a phone call or text away. We provide Guests with that phone number. Also, we have been fully inspected and licensed by Washington, DC Government since 2014 with a fully certified business license to rent the home so all is well and safe. This license is required to be updated bi-annually so we just had our re-inspection in May 2016. We have that license at the home on display. So the Egress may be an issue in the Guest's hometown but is not according to the Officials in The Nation's Capital City. However, we welcome any/all suggestions and really appreciate hearing from our Guests as our ultimate goal is to help make the Guests' stay memorable.

Really like this unit

  • 4 of 5

I really like this unit.

I would have rated it 5 stars except for a few things:

- some small ants in bathroom up stairs

- dining room table needs new chairs

- dining room lamp broken

- several light bulbs out

Very clean.

Very spacious.

I would rent again.

Nice House, good location, few problems

  • 4 of 5

Pros: This house accommodated 14 people (6 Adults, 8kids). The metro was in close proximity(10 minutes away), there is a CVS, Target, Modell's, Payless, and 7-11 in the vicinity of the metro station. The property manager addressed all of our concerns upon our notification to him

Cons: The items that needed addressing was the water pressure throughout the house was extremely low, and the AC on the upper level initially wasn't working, Jacuzzi on the 2nd floor was inoperable.

Overall: I'd give this house a 3.5 star rating but could easily get 4-4.5 if these few con items were addressed. We were able to enjoy our vacation and experience DC. Suggestion if you'd never visited DC but plan to. Get some good walking shoes and get familiar with the metro system

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience for our first time in DC. There were 9 of us and it was nice to have a large table to eat at together and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals. The location was close to the Metro and bus stations and also shopping, including a CVS and Target. Although we did not eat at any nearby restaurants, we did enjoy the donuts from Zombie Coffee and Donuts. There are a lot of stairs, but we knew this from the house description so that was not a problem. The only complaint the kids that slept on the 4th floor mentioned was that there were no window coverings . We ended up covering the windows with extra sheets for privacy and to keep out the morning light. We did have one issue with a bed that was handled promptly. The neighborhood was relatively quiet, except some traffic noise could be heard from the front bedrooms. Also, as the previous review mentioned, we encountered some water on the floor by the fridge at the beginning of our stay and padding on two of the chairs was still worn down. I would recommend this property to others (just a note to verify access instructions before your arrival including the access code for the lock box).

Nice home with lots of stairs to climb and the neighborhood is not very quiet

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay, although the rear bedroom on the second floor presented a problem because there is no bathroom in that bedroom and no hallway bathroom either. The occupants of that bedroom had to disturb the occupants of the front bedroom on that floor or the front bedroom on the third floor to use the bathroom at night and to take a shower. Ultimately, we changed bedrooms where someone ended up sleeping on the fourth floor where there is only a half bath with no shower and we left that second floor rear bedroom unoccupied. My 88-year-old mother did her best to go between her bedroom on the second floor to the main floor as needed. Also, water leaked from the refrigerator pan onto the kitchen floor and we had to mop that up a few times; reported it to the maintenance guy, but it was not fixed. The cushion in some of the chairs at the main dining table are worn and no longer support the person seated. The neighborhood is OK, we enjoyed the walk to the shopping area a few blocks away. There was a party in the house next door the Saturday night and some attendees were somewhat loud on the sidewalk in front of the house even after midnight. This is a beautiful home though it is a very old silo-stile design. We were satisfied with the cleanliness, the security of the home and access to restaurants and shopping areas.
