One of the worst places we've ever booked. Not big enough to house five individuals comfortably. Owners were kind enough to allow early check-in. The place wasn't clean which we attributed to early arrival. So, we dropped off our bags and went off to see the city. We returned very late and the place still wasn't clean. Dirty towels in the tub and bathroom floors, no clean towels available, trash everywhere, bed sheets on the ground, no clean linen and dirty floors. Two of the three stools were broken, chairs in the kitchen were wobbly as well. Cooking utensils weren't any better. Pans were burned very badly so we couldn't use and the non-stick pans were all scratched as well which are chemically unsafe. Owners were kind enough to leave ear plugs in the bedroom with a note about dealing with the noise of small children in the above apartment and assured us that place would be clean in the morning by 9 AM. Owners offered to come to help us clean that night but that's not how we want to start our vacation, cleaning the mess left by other guests after a long day. With early activities planned the following day, our family of five (four girls) and the prospect of going two full days in 95+ temperature without a shower and good nights rest was too much. We left and booked a hotel. We reached out to owners multiple times via text and email throughout the week and never heard back after the first day and we notified them of the issues and our decision to leave. Owners stated they were "away" with poor service. In the subsequent months, communication is not any better and our attempts to rectify the situation were not acknowledged. Stay away, terrible experience. Not sure how it was ranked so high with such poor service and accommodations
This apartment is brilliantly located for the amenities of Capitol Hill as well as good bus and Metro routes. Communication was good and the apartmeny lovely. Some other users have noted the signs and requests as being intrusive: I disnt find this at all. It’s a lovely apartment and I can understand the owners wanting to keep it that way.
I’d be happy to come back here again in a future stay in DC
Very clean and cozy! A big one bedroom apartment that is in a great location. Exactly as described and worth a visit!
Sadly unlike other reviewers we found this apartment a little disappointing. Well to be exact the apartment itself was nice and the bed was very comfortable. The weather at the time was very cold and it was cosy, warm and comfortable inside. The location was good as long as you like walking, in an area with a large number of interesting brown stone properties and not far from Eastern Market. The problem we had lay with the expectations and notices left by the owners. For instance, take your shoes off when you enter - well no problem we do this all the time at home but the doorstep of our home is clean whereas the doorstep and entrance area to this apartment was not. Being expected to wash our sheets and towels before departure was a surprise to us, we've never been asked to do it anywhere else. Also we didn't like being left other guests left over shampoos and toiletries. Neither did we like the mish-mash of mugs, some chipped. Netflix wasn't working although the owner fixed it for our second night. Nowadays travellers like ourselves expect high standards and the issues we raise are very easy and cheap to fix so no excuses there!
My husband, son and I visited for a spring break tour for our son. We have been to DC multiple times and this was one of our favorite visits. The accommodations were wonderful, comfortable, and absolutely perfect. Justin and Dawn were wonderful and have the perfect accommodations for anyone coming to DC. We were close to restaurants and the metro and the neighborhood was wonderful. I highly recommend this listing as you will not be disappointed.
We couldn't be more pleased with the accommodations Having a great vacation in Washington DC
We would definitely recommend Justin & Dawn's apartment
