We had a group of 8 stay here for 4 days, it was perfect for us. We only had 1 car and parked in the garage, street parking looked difficult to find but not impossible. The unit was very clean and updated, and having 3 bathrooms was key for our large group. Derrick was very helpful. Good ethnic food just a block away. I recommend the red derby for brunch! We didn't use the metro since uber ended up being so much cheaper per person.
The house was just as advertised... comfortable, safe, and walking distance to the metro. (The metro is super easy to figure out and there are re-loadable metro cards kept in the house.) Everyday on our walk to and from the metro to get downtown we met some of the people in the neighborhood, all of them smiled and said hi or waved in our direction. We felt completely safe walking to and from the metro, which turns out to be about a half mile from the house with a slight incline in some spots. The grocery store is right outside the metro as well, so we could pick up some things every night on our way home. The house was super clean and well maintained... looks like a lot of work went into the house. The interior brick walls and woodwork are beautiful and definitely add some character to the house. There is a downstairs apartment right below the residence but we never heard a peep from them. Kitchen is fully stocked and the charcoal grill was super easy to use. We were worry free having a garage... we literally parked the car there when we arrived and didn't move it till we left. Oh and the house is only about 4 miles from the National Zoo... if you have little ones this is a must (although be forewarned the zoo is built entirely on a hill). I'd recommend this place in a heartbeat to a family that wants to stay close enough to DC but not downtown.
Our family which consists of 6 adults and a baby had a pleasant stay. House was big enough for us to all have our space and the 2.5 bathrooms were wonderful. House is good location to downtown. Appreciated having a garage so didn't worry about parking and the van was somewhat cool when we started out as it was extremely hot when we were there.
Interesting renovated old row house, attached houses on either side. Small front lawn. Didn't use the rear yard. Nice to sit out on front porch and have a beer at the end of the day. Our VRBO was on two floors, creaky floors and inside doors that didn't always close easily.
A late June stay with some hot weather, nice to have ac but a bit uneven (one room to the next in upstairs bedrooms). Ceiling fans in two of three bedrooms helped. Master bathroom new and nice.
Place was as advertised. Remember no dishwasher! WiFI fine. Washer and dryer on the first floor.
Short walk to catch a regular bus line which takes you downtown DC. Metro a bit longer walk in other direction. Reloadable fare cards available at VRBO.
It was great to be able to use the garage to store our rental car on the last day.
Nearby restaurants and convenient stores are small and ethnic, near metro are more elaborate restaurants and a safeway grocery store.
Met Derric, the owner. Nice, helpful fellow. Helped our son get in (by phone) when he arrived first.
I would recommend it to others, just don't expect a hotel or resort type new construction.
The first impressions were unsetting due to the high traffic. Once we got settled in the house was great. We met the owner and he was very nice. I would rent with him again.
From the beginning, Derric was organized and quick to respond to our needs. He sent instructions for entry into the space and basic information for our stay in a document as soon as payment was made.
Our group of 8 was comfortable and had plenty of space in the clean townhouse. It was nice having two bathrooms upstairs and a 1/2 bath downstairs making it easy for the large group to get started in the morning. Everything was easy to find-instructions for washing machine, extra linens, pamphlets for attractions, reusable metro cards- and Derric was easy to communicate with via text. We brought a 15-passanger van for the trip, and although it did not fit in the garage, Derric obtained a parking permit for the duration of the visit, and even went the extra step to find and place it on our vehicle so we wouldn't have to return from downtown.
The neighborhood is working class and many families with children were visible. The metro was easy to find and felt safe to walk. A safeway and a dunkin donuts were conveniently on the way to the metro. We even utilized the bus, only 1/2 a block away, to return one evening saving our feet a few steps.
I have already forwarded this rental to collegues who are planning on bringing a group to DC in Jan.
