We did a lot of research for a vacation rental, as we always do when we travel. We thought this would fit us perfectly and it surely did. We stayed on the top floor unit, just because I like not having people walking around above me, especially in an older home. It is beautifully painted, designed, furnished and updated. The queen bed in the bedroom and furniture in the LR were very comfortable. Plenty of storage for clothing, packed items.Good wifi and mobile phone connection. Good instructions for secure entry and locking of doors.
This is such a great location, 2 blocks from the Metro, which we used every day during our 8 day visit. There are so many good restaurants nearby on 8th Street and more on Pennsylvania. The Eastern Market and the Yes! organic market provided some healthful produce and quick meals. It's a beautiful quiet neighborhood with many young families, professionals, and older retired residents.
Kirk responded immediately when we had some problems with the washer/dryer and a couple of other minor issues. We enjoyed meeting him and his wife.
Yes, the staircase is narrow and steep. I would not have been able to get my bag up the stairs by myself. My strong husband had a bit of trouble but that is what you get with older Victorian homes.
Book ahead; this is a popular area and property.More
