This was our first trip to D.C. and this was a perfect place for our family. We have two children under age 10 and it was our first experience using airbnb and we couldn't be more pleased. The place was very clean and accommodating. It had a lot of thoughtful things stocked in the kitchen such as coffee items, spices, etc that you would be good for anyone staying longer than a couple days. There is also a collection of brochures and maps that we actually found very helpful and informative if you are visiting to see the sites. As far as location, it was a nice 5 minute walk to the metro where you pass by a nice Safeway, Starbucks and some restaurants. We liked that it was just outside all the busy parts but close enough to get back to easily. We actually chose this location because we were also there to catch a baseball game and the location is between the Nationals Park and the Mall. On the metro, you are one stop from the Mall and two stops from the ball park. We did walk to the National Mall one day just to try it, which only took 15 minutes and was easy to navigate. Between the two I would still recommend taking the metro so long as they are running on schedule. Luisa and Gonzalo were very pleasant and easy to communicate with. The place was chilly (we are from Florida though) and the only drawback was that you cannot control the temperature yourself as the thermostat is not located in the space, however the hosts are able to adjust it for you if you need them to do so via a Nest system which is what they did for us very easily. Overall we would definitely come back and stay because it made our visit easy and enjoyable!

Luisa and her husband were so accommodating - super responsive and quick to answer all questions. The space was perfectly cozy for me and four other girls on our weekend trip. There is a parking lot if you're driving down and it is so convenient as there didn't seem to be any street spots. Walking distance from the Nationals Stadium, which was really great!

It was wonderful staying at Luisa and Gonzalo's place the weekend of the Cherry Blossom 10-miler! The apartment was in the perfect location -- walkable to the start line and all Cherry Blossom events, and close to the SW Waterfront metro, making it easy to get around to other parts of the city. The apartment itself was clean and cozy, and there was great information about DC provided to help out-of-towners get their bearings. Great patio out back as well, through we didn't have time to try it. Would definitely stay here again!

Luisa and Gonzalo were great. Allowed us to check in early. Had a little snafu with the lock one day but Gonzalo made sure everything was okay (I think the issue was on my end). Very accommodating hosts, very responsive. Metro and grocery are both close, 5-10 minute walk away, the Mall is about a 15 minute walk. Not too many restaurants or bars nearby but that wasn't a problem. Interesting books to read in the kitchen, Direct TV, large shower. Overall great trip, would recommend to anyone.

We are a small family, I am from Venezuela and my husband is from Peru. We have a Washingtonian's son who is 7 years old. We moved to Washington, D.C. 16 years ago which make us feel like "Washingtonians". We really enjoy sharing our beautiful townhouse with you, and hope you have an amazing stay.
