Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Dereje, was very pleasant and greeted us the morning after our arrival. He was very quick to respond with any needs via text. He left us bottles of water, and a bottle of wine in the refrigerator. We had a quick but very pleasant greeting the morning after our arrival as we were on our way out to meet our family. The accommodations met our needs just fine, we basically slept there and got ready for our day in the morning, and our 21-year-old son stayed in the studio apartment with us. One suggestion would be that the entryway be a little bit more gracious in appearance somehow, since it is a basement apartment. It would help to create a nicer first impression. But we are most grateful, the price was right, and we look forward to our next visit!!!

Fantastic room/location/hosts, Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I took a spur of the moment trip to DC, and I am so thankful we ran upon this property. It had outside access, which was super convenient for us coming in late from the city. The space was simple, but very comfortable. The bed and futon slept great, there is a spacious shower and bathroom, and a kitchen if you needed it! The accommodations were very comfortable and it was a nice place to come home after a hot day in the sun seeing the city. We felt welcome as soon as we arrived, and we truly felt that we could make ourselves at home. The hosts were incredibly kind and it was a pleasure getting to know them throughout our stay.

The location of the property was great as well, it was away from the busyness of the city but a short drive or uber ride to the center of town to tourist attractions, monuments, etc.

I highly recommend staying here, and if we ever go back to DC we will know where to stay!

It was Ok really. Could be more comfortable. Location was nice, we really liked having a kitchen with fridge/stove and everything a kitchen needs. Shower was really nice, there are some low pipes in the basement but two 6' tall people did just fine. Main gripe is the noise from upstairs, starting around 6:30am its pretty hard to sleep due to the sounds of footsteps.

Owner's Response: We always brief our guests that weekdays around 7:00 am we leave the house to go to work and kids to school. There is a brief 10 - 15 minutes movements as we grab a quick cereal and exit the house. We take extreme caution to be considerate to our guests as they are to us.

Property Owner was Fantastic

  • 3 of 5

Just two issues with the property:

1) I am 6'2" and I kept hitting my head on the low pipes in the space. My friend is 5'11" and he said the pipes just grazed his hair. So if you are 5'11" or under you are golden. Over that you will bang your head. I have a bad back so it was a little frustrating walking around bent over so I didn't have to worry about hitting my head.

2) They didn't have cable but had internet TV. Not sure if it was poor download speeds but the programs we tried to watch would constantly stop to buffer. Very frustrating.

Other than that the bed and futon we comfortable. The place is quiet and it was a real advantage having a full kitchen and washer/dryer in the place since I was staying there for over a week.

Again the owner of the property was very gracious and helpful. I forgot to bring my laptop power cord and he let me use his until I could get a replacement shipped.

Owner's Response: Our house was built in 1929 with all its charms and downside which is a low level 6' 3" ceiling. Some of our guests are fine with it. I apologize for frustrating experience but if I had known the level of frustration I would have been willing to refund and help find alternative accommodation.

Wonderful host, quiet neighborhood, couldn't ask for a better location.

  • 3 of 5

This place can present challenges for people 6 ft. and over. Low beams separating the living room from the kitchen and even lower pipes in the bathroom had me feeling like I could never really stand tall. I'm 6'2".

Low profile bed just inches off the floor made it difficult to get out of bed (younger people would not affect). My wife has hip issues and it was a bit of a problem. Minimal kitchen equipment. All we wanted was basically a place to sleep and that worked out fairly well for us.
