    4/5 Good

    Nice but worn.
    Pictures on website made it appear flattering. However , home needs some renovations to update and brighten to make it more appealing.

    5/5 Excellent

    Just Right for Us!
    A reasonably convenient location and a very private, spacious, tastefully decorated, and comfortably furnished apartment, with back patio sitting area (comfortable, though a bit junky), overall, this was just right for us! A parking pass also gave us free street parking, usually right in front of our apartment and once less than a block away.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great locale, cozy place
    This basement apartment was perfect for my recent Washington stint. Easy walk to downtown buses and metro. David was super responsive and the place was comfortable and cozy even during a DC winter!

    1/5 Terrible


    5/5 Excellent

    Cute place, responsive owner/manager
    Really cute, comfortable apartment on the lower level. Walk out back door to a charming garden/seating area. Perfect for two people. There was a minor issue with the WiFi on Saturday night, our last night, and David responded in minutes and the problem was corrected. The point is that he responded quickly even on a Saturday night. Much appreciated. In addition, we arrived about an hour earlier than we thought we would (and an hour before check-in) and David accommodated us. This is a cute, downstairs apartment in a great location with a very responsive manager/owner! We would stay here again!
