My wife and I stayed in David's place over the Thanksgiving "weekend." We stayed there because my daughter's house near David's place was full of other relatives. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. It was certainly large enough for the two of us and we could have included some more if needed. It is in a quiet part of Mt. Pleasant, but within a reasonable walking distance to buses and the Columbia Heights subway station to downtown (museums, the White House, monuments, etc). We found on the street parking within about a block of the apartment each time we went out (David provides a "guest" parking pass for those using the apartment). A large Giant grocery store is about 5 blocks away. Basically, everything you need for a visit to Washington DC and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend this Home Away!
My family (two kids under 4) came to DC to attend a wedding and we had a wonderful time in large part thanks to the accommodations. The house was easy to find, located in a safe family friendly neighborhood with easy access to the zoo. We had grocery stores etc nearby to stock up the kitchen, but were far enough away from the main drag of Adams Morgan that there was no sleep disturbing street noise. Unless you count hearing the lion at the zoo roar! :) Finally, the property manager was incredibly professional and responsive. Early in our stay the deadbolt to the front door broke (locking me inside with the kids and my husband outside). One text to the landlord and he was there in 10 minutes with toolbox in hand.
All in all, we were very pleased with our stay and would absolutely stay there again. Perhaps the only thing they could do to improve upon a wonderful rental property is add some additional warmth to the interior with a couple throw blankets, decorations and a little stash of magazines or books, board games, etc.
