You get to experience DC like a local in a real neighborhood on a tree-lined block and avoid tourist traps
The studio is in the basement of my home (I live upstairs when I'm not traveling for work), so you have your privacy, but also the security of knowing you're not completely alone in a new city.
Have special requests, like grocery delivery, airport transport, etc? I'm happy to arrange for an additional price, just let me know. For example, maid service can be provided for $55.00 per cleaning.
Please no smoking or pets.
Thanks for reading my ad, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
Ann is a fantastic host, and so is the apartment. Literally everything you need is there, from coffee pads to a yakuzi.
If you have a light sleep you might notice the noise from the fridge and a/c in the quiet hours, though.
Ann's apartment is great: the bathroom is fantastic, there is a good oven and stove top (although we missed baking sheets / oven pans) and the bed is nice. Plus, there are plenty of towels, there is tea and coffee and there is even soap and shampoo!
Getting to the metro is quick, but it only goes once every 24 minutes in the weekend. There is a Safeway relatively close (10-15 min walk), but in the dark we did not feel completely safe walking (maybe only because we did not know the area and it was quiet there, though). Biggest downside was that we did not get to meet Ann. She was available for any questions via email or phone, but we partly like Wimdu a lot because it allows you to meet 'locals' and chat about the environment and the things to see and do.
a little bit far from downtown, but is a nice place , very clean , have a very confortable big bed
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was clean and has eveything you need. Moreover, the next subway station is just 5 min walk away.
We can only recommend this nice apartment. It's very easy to get to the museums around national mall with the orange line. Ann was very caring, so if you can get this room for your d.c. trip, take it! :-)
The first impression of the apartment was that it was a bit small but just big enough for two persons, so it was perfect.
It was a clean apartment in a quiet neighboorhood. The only thing you might hear there, are the alarms of fire trucks.
Metro is only 5 minutes away and gives you great access to the city.
It were the little things that made us liking the apartment the most. Everything was there. Spices, hair dryers, a wash machine and dryer + soap, even razors and sunblock. We can higly recommend this apartment!
Hi there fellow travellers, If you ever get to Washington DC, Ann and Sesimo (hope I spelt that right) are wonderful people. They have a lovely basement apartment for you in a quiet neighbour hood and the biggest smiles, I recomend it to anyone, peace and love to you.
Appartamento ottimo per due persone. Accogliente, tutto funzionante con tutto il necessario e più.
Unser Aufenthalt bei Ann war sehr angenehm! Das Apartment ist sauber, von der Hauptwohnung quasi komplett getrennt, die Küche ist zum Teil sogar mit Lebensmitteln bestückt (eine Flasche Wasser war schon eingekühlt, es gibt eine Kaffeemaschine und alle notwendigen Utensilien dafür), im Bad ist alles wichtige, inkl. Fön, Duschgel, Shampoo und Conditioner und jeder Menge sauberer Handtücher vorhanden. Waschmaschine und Trockner waren nicht direkt im Apartment, da sie anscheinend vor kürzerer Zeit kaputt gegangen waren, aber wir durften Ann's wie selbstverständlich mitbenutzen.
Die U-Bahn Station ist tatsächlich sogar unter 5 Minuten erreichbar (Ann war auch noch so nett uns eine SmarTrip Karte für die Zeit unseres Aufenthalts zu überlassen, damit wir uns die Anschaffungsgebühren dafür sparen konnten) und man ist innerhalb von 15 Minuten in Downtown DC. Die Nachbarschaft selbst ist typisch für Anacostia und sehr ruhig.
Ann war extrem bemüht um uns! Mein Laptop wollte sich nicht mit dem Internet verbinden und, obwohl sie am nächsten Morgen zu einer Flugreise aufbrechen musste, versuchte sie mit allen Mitteln, inklusive mehreren Anrufen beim Provider, eine Verbindung herzustellen.
Ich würde jederzeit wieder bei Ann bleiben und werde sie auch jedem weiterempfehlen!
