Superb location & accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Washington DC. The brownstone was close to everything - we were able to walk nearly everywhere. Comfortable beds, clean and accommodating. Easy check in & out allowed for flexible planning.

Wow what a location, great apartment too.

  • 5 of 5

This brownstone could not be in a better place. Two blocks off the Capital Building, short walk to the Capital South Metro. From there you can basically get to anywhere in the city. Restaurants, bakery, Starbucks, market all two blocks away.

Gene was extremely responsive. He adjusted the thermostat remotely before we even asked. The place is clean, well furnished, and perfect for a vacation to the Capital. We walked to the museums and monuments. Rode the Metro to various places we didn't want to walk.

He also has a parking place available for reservation immediately out the back door. Which was very convenient.

Plenty of room for two adults and two kids. The kids slept on the pull out coach with no issues.

We stayed in the Penthouse, but I would recommend any of the units in this building that Gene has. Great place, great experience. I can't see my family staying in an hotel in DC when this place is available.

Good location but.....

  • 3 of 5

The location was great, we were able to walk to the monuments and the Capital. It was a short Uber ride to other activities. The downside of the apartment however were many, the bed was not very comfortable, the shower had almost no water pressure and took forever to heat up, at night the lights from outside kept the room bright and the noise from the street made it hard to sleep.

Great location. Hot water takes forever.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location in East Capital Hill with Capital Bikes station two blocks away. There was some street noise but we hardly noticed it. The ceiling fan was a nice touch and needed for the warm muggy DC fall. Negatives: Mattress and bedding were of poor quality; mattress made my back hurt (very soft) and sheets kept coming off mattress. It literally took 5-7 minutes of running the shower to get hot water and water pressure was not much more than a trickle.
