This house had many positive characteristics and a few negative ones. If you want to see the real DC and not just the tourist spots, this is a great choice. We met many friendly people while walking to and from the bus stop and the tram stop. When we were lost, total strangers came up to offer help. The house is obviously very old, but has been well maintained. The bedrooms are small and have full-sized beds, which is not too good for tall or large people. We were expecting to have 2 bathrooms, since that's how the house was advertised when we reserved and paid for it, but two days before arriving we found out there was a leak in the downstairs half bath and that bath might not be available. The day we arrived we discovered that, in fact, we would have only one bathroom for 4 of us... including a teenage girl. The off-street parking behind the house is great and very secure with a padlocked gate. The house has a narrow winding stairway - just as you would expect in a home this old. Charming is definitely the right word to describe this house.
The house is very clean and comfortable. It’s located close to the Smithsonian Mall area, about 10 mins drive. There’s also nearby buses that get you there.
Only downside is that it has only one bathroom so for bigger families like ours (5 pax), the bath time queue will be longer than usual.
The bus route B2 was at the bottom of the street, and the D6 bus was at the top of the street, so easy to get about. The house was very nice, clean and everything was working? The back yard was great to sit in and enjoy the sun. Only down side was that there was not a telephone to be able to order takeaways as we liked to stay in at night.
Really enjoyed staying in this cosy well appointed and located property. Meal and transport options within easy walking distance. Appreciated the detailed information folder provided by the owner.
Our family of four really enjoyed coming home each day to this quiet neighborhood just a short Uber ride away from the nation's Capitol. The beds were very comfy and the living room was just right for the four of us. The kitchen had all we needed for our meals. Amanda was immediately available by text to help us with our needs.
Thanks for everything!
