We thought the apartment was great, clean and really well equipped. It's well located for the Capitol, Museums and all the monuments. It's so close to the metro station that we were able to travel much further afield as well without getting too overheated in August DC weather. We followed Genevieves suggestions for the airport transfer,restaurants, and for getting some groceries delivered, all very easy. All in all the perfect spot for a great introduction to Washington. Highly recommended.

The apartment was superb! It was very clean and well stocked with everything we could have wanted and more. It was very well situated for the Capitol area and was only about 3 minutes walk from the Metro. It was also only a 10 minute walk to lots of good restaurants. We were made to feel very welcome and it was so kind of Genevieve to look after our luggage on the day of our departure so that we could fit in some last minute sight seeing before heading to the airport.

Lovely apartment with full self catering facilities and some you would only expect in a hotel such as sheets towels shampoo. When you have travelled as we have across the Atlantic and arrive in a new city with only a suitcase it really is appreciated. This was our first experience of Washington and airbnb and they were both fantastic. We echo all the other great reviews and comments about the apartment and our hostess. We would definitely recommend this apartment. Well done and thank you Genevieve and family for helping to make our stay so good.

Just returned from our trip to the US. We spent the first week at Genevieve's beautiful Capitol Hill apartment and it was ideal for our family of five. The location was excellent for all we wanted to do, the museums on the Mall, Eastern Market etc and very close to the Metro for the further afield attractions like the zoo. The apartment was beautiful, as described and photographed, and very well equipped for a family wanting to self-cater, obviously with much thought by someone who has traveled with children. We very much appreciated the items left for our arrival, (milk, juice, yogurt, coffee and a bottle of wine) and all the helpful information about the area. We would love to return one day and would recommend this lovely apartment. Sorry we didn't get to meet our host.

Genevieve's apartment was absolutely perfect. All pre-arrangements were very smooth and easy and Genevieve was friendly and relaxed over e-mail, including accommodating last minute changes to my booking. The apartment is very nicely decorated, comfortable and has all the amenities you'd expect. Two bathrooms is an enormous bonus. She very kindly left a personal welcome note and a package of food essentials (including a much-needed bottle of wine!) and some guide books to get us started. During the stay she was on hand to help with any problems (although there weren't any) and was as warm and friendly in person as she was over e-mail. I recommend this delightful and very well situated apartment to anyone. Thank you Genevieve, i look forward to staying again.

We are a family of five and have lived in Washington DC for the last 10 years. We love living in Capitol Hill. The Hill is very family friendly, has great restaurants, parks and farmers markets and enables us to frequent the nearby Smithsonian museums. Prior to coming to DC, my husband and I spent time in Bolivia and Guatemala and were fortunate to stay with wonderful hosts. We hope to provide a similar experience for visitors to DC!
