About this listing
This 2nd floor apartment is modern styled, natural light-filled, very comfortable, and has a shared courtyard with grill. The apartment is very clean, comfortable, and livable (but is on the 2nd story, and thus has a staircase and is not very handicapped accessible). There are 2 BRs with a queen bed and full bed, a full sized futon, a super comfortable full air mattress, and a nice big couch - all with ORGANIC sheet sets. The kitchen comes fully stocked with all the equipment you would need to make a sandwich, or an elaborate 10-course meal, and a dishwasher to clean up afterwards. Need coffee in the morning? We have a french press and a Keurig machine. There's also a washer and dryer w/ supplies for doing laundry, as well as a drying rack, ironing board, and iron.
Our wonderful apartment is located a quick 10 minute walk to Chinatown, 5 minutes to the Convention Center (and metro), near plenty of convenient bus lines, and 5 minutes from plenty of restaurants and shops.
It comes with dedicated wired and wireless internet, a big 50" LCD TV with full cable package and HD, Playstation 3 with Netflix streaming, and a surround sound audio system. There are plenty of books to read, lots of great magazine subscriptions, and even a few board games.
Our courtyard is shared with 3 other very nice neighbors, and has furniture and a charcoal grill for use. We can also leave bikes here for your enjoyment for a small fee. Smoking is allowed in the courtyard, but not inside.

Try not to stomp on the floor. Our downstairs neighbors will thank you.

We stayed in DC for a few days on vacation. We stayed at Ben's place. It was exactly as advertised. The apt is delightful, the main area is sunny and wide open. My kids loved playing in it and runnin up and down the halls. The neighborhood is nice, about a 10 minute walk to the Metro with small kids, an adult could easily do the walk in 5-6 minutes. Overall I would recommend this place to any group of 2-6 would be comfortable and have a great time in DC, thanks Ben!
The apartment and location were perfect for our stay. Walking distance to great shops, restaurants, grocery store and bars. In addition, the apartment is pretty spread out so it remained really quiet between rooms. Ben was more than accommodating pre, during and post trip and I would definitely rent from him again. This is a great deal! Thank you.
Excellent space! Close to the great restaurants and public transportation. Quiet in the evenings, well maintained and super clean. Would stay again! Great place to stay in DC.
My family and I stayed at Ben's for 5 days and 4 nights, the location of the apartment and the apartment itself are to die for. The apartment is as nice as the pictures on airbnb, there's a courtyard and grill, the large windows give a lot of sunlight, which i love! Ben was very thoughtful, he already prepared a third mattress in the living room, just in case if we needed an extra bed. Ben was a wonderful host from the beginning to the end, he was really easy to reach and responsive. He was very understanding and flexible in regards to check in and check out. Whenever I'm in DC I will definitely try to stay at Ben's again! I highly recommend!!!!!!
Really thank Ben's host. This apartment has a very good location, and modern design, and is very comfortable and stylish. We got all the necessary equipments and lots lots lots cooking accessories. Ben is so nice and easy going, I got many helps from him. The only word to describe the apartment and Ben is WONDERFUL....
Ben has a really great place, and it was a pleasure to stay there during my most recent trip to D.C. It is literally a few blocks away from the Convention Center, so if you are working there this is definately the place to crash. Some niced bars, restaurants and a grocery store in close proximity too. The place is big, clean and nice. And Ben is a good guy too.
The apartment was as described: spacious and lovely, modern, really easy to get to the convention center (d definitely recommend it!
