눉Take care of details and this could be a great place such as: clean patio area and trim back tree branch to avoid constant dodging when entering gate; kitchen amenities - replace some pans since teflon is scratched, replace kitchen towels; cabinet door hinges loose and, need a few more glasses. The bathroom was in need of minor repairs such as the towel rack was loose and the door hook was also loose. Lastly, refresh the towels and bed linens, steam clean carpets. These changes could be easily fixed and would truly make this great historic home a fabulous place to visit DC.
눇Three full size beds in each of the bedrooms was great for my family; a tv in each room and in the living room; the location is away from the busy DC area. The bathroom was large and very nicely decorated. The kitchen and large dining table worked well as a great gathering place to prepare our daily outings. The parking was also great. I was able to park our car without any issues or concerns with anyone breaking into the car. The house is a beautifully renovated historic home and the neighborhood was safe. I loved the huge trees and all the sounds and sights associated with being close to nature. Despite this being a basement apartment, it was nicely laid out and very functional. The air conditioning worked very well, which was great durng the heat wave. Overall, this place served our purpose- which was to be out most of the day and return to a safe place to sleep/rest or enjoy some time together.

눉One of our sons fell through a grating just inside the wooden gate. He scratched his leg up quite badly and if he hadn't just had a tetanus shot we probably would have spent most of our holiday in Washington in a hospital somewhere getting another jab. It is very unsafe and nothing was done to rectify it while we were there. The overhanging plants made it difficult to get though the gate without standing on the grate. We were disappointed with the kitchen utensils - there were not enough mugs/plates for all of us and the forks were too big for our kids to use. There were no teaspoons at all (rectified after we asked for some). It was also a little surprising that the flat was a basement flat as that is not mentioned in the advertisement - talks about it being a lower level. Anyone mildly claustrophobic might have had issues.
눇Loved the nice cool aircon!
