Not much to add to the other reviews. Location location location. There were more than 20 quality restaurants within a 10 minute stroll in a safe area. Very heavy police presence.
Kurt was kind to let us leave our bags after the checkout time.
Would do it again in a heartbeat.

“Perfect stay for a demanding family of three including a teenage girl!”

Great location and easy access for sightseeing, but privacy and relaxation just like being home after a long day. Very clean, nice decor, great big tub for soaking and nice little porch to sit outside and enjoy morning coffee or just relax. Neighbors are very friendly and the neighborhood felt safe. Police patrol constantly. High class area. VERY close to lots of great food and Eastern Market within walking distance. We parked our car right in front of the unit and never used it again until time to leave. Reservations, payment, free parking pass, all interaction with owner pleasant, efficient, and professional. If we go to DC again, we will definitely stay here. We would even change the dates of our trip if necessary to stay here.

Liked best: It was our own little oasis after a day in the city.
Liked least: The stairs are steep but also part of the charm. It only matters if you are disabled, otherwise it's fine. Just a lot of walking in DC.

“Fabulous Apartment with a great location”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The apartment is fabulous, more than we could have asked for! Great location, just steps to the Eastern Market metro stop, Eastern Market (fabulous food at the Market Lunch counter) and the restaurants on 8th. Kirk was friendly and knowledgeable and set us immediately at ease. The apartment is beautifully appointed with a full kitchen (where we cooked a farmer's market dinner one night) and lots of space to spread out in the living room after a long day of sightseeing. After having walked past the locations of the usual Mariott, etc towards downtown, I know it was a far better decision to rent the apartment in an interesting neighbourhood. Two thumbs up!

“Lovely apartment, perfect location”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

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.

“Ideal location, wonderful apartment.”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Ideally placed near the Eastern Markets metro, local restaurants, EasternMarket food hall, and amongst the lovely Capitol Hill Houses. We loved our short stay in this apartment, and even managed a relaxing drink on the balcony in warm April sunshine. Lovely spotless rooms, tastefully decorated and with a superb kitchen. Also Kirk couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Even had a great chat to a local neighbour who recognised us as visitors and asked about our trip!
