The apartment is a completely separate unit from the main part of the house where we normally live and sometimes rent on Airbnb. We will try to check you in personally, but if we are unable we have key-less locks so you can access the place with a personalized code.

Interaction with guests

I'm generally traveling when I rent my home out but I'm always available to help you. I'll try to be there to greet you when you arrive/depart but not always. However, I have key-less locks that allow you to let yourself in and check out so you never have to wait. There are maps, guidebooks and a list of local suggestions for eating, drinking, museums, etc. I'm happy to help you make any plans, don't hesitate to ask! My co-host Kay lives 3 houses down the street and will be available during your stay.

Other things to note

Please have in mind that our family lives upstairs, including a 7-year old and a two dogs. We spend most of the time in the second floor with one floor between us and the lower unit, so you shouldn't have to worry about it. Sometimes kids can make some noise, nothing out of the ordinary if you are used to apartment living.

10 min walk from Union Station, great access to bars and restos, and a 2 min walk to a couple of buses to Dupont/downtown. Rod's basement location is clean, large, well appointed, and communication is easy and quick.

We had a wonderful 2 day stay in DC and Rod's place was ideally located for visiting the main sights. It was close to public transport, shops, restaurants etc. and we felt safe in the neighbourhood. The apartment itself was ideal for self catering and spacious for our family of 4. It has a well equipped kitchen with store cupboard basics and the new Queen bed is very comfortable. Unfortunately there was conflicting information about leaving bags before check-in. We had confirmed with Rod before booking that we could store our bags from late morning so that we could sightsee. Then we received check-in info from Kay the day before arrival confirming that we couldn't turn up until 4pm. When I explained that we had only booked on the proviso of being able to store bags, Kay said she'd have to work out a solution. As it turned out we were able to leave our bags in the foyer which was ideal but the confusion & conflicting info was unnecessary. The apartment nightly rate was very good value for DC although the cleaning fee was almost £75, the highest we've had in 7 months of travel. Given this we were disappointed to find bits all over the sofa-bed and stains, as this is where our children slept. The rest of the apartment was clean enough but for £75 I would have expected it all to be spotless! There are leaflets and tourist info in the apartment and Kay was very helpful with recommendations/links for museums. The instructions for the tv/remotes didn't seem to correspond to the TV set up in the apartment. Kay kindly offered to come and look at this but as we were up early for a flight we left it. Overall the apartment worked well and suited our requirements.

Response from Rod:
Thanks for your feedback Deborah, we take our guests opinions very seriously and we are always eager to improve based on their experiences. We changed cleaners and we reduced the cleaning fee from $95 to $75 to be in accordance with the market. Thanks again and I hope we can host your family again in the future.

Great location to tour DC from. Easy walk to Union Station, and from there you can take the Circulator bus for $1 to anywhere on the Mall, etc. Even took the bus to a baseball game. Also convenient to Gallaudet University. Grocery stores and restaurants super close. Was great to be able to have breakfast and snacks handy. Very clean and safe location. Quiet residential neighborhood. Will definitely try to stay there again on next trip to DC!
