What to say about Lisa - The best host ever! Always really helpful, answering emails very very soon, providing information even without asking her.... In regards to the flat, it is great, we were very comfortable there and it is quite near the metro station. It has been a great experience and I would repeat at Lisa's flat in case I come back to Washington DC for sure. Thank you Lisa.

Lisa was friendly and made us feel very welcome, even getting us a small gift on arrival. The apartment was great and just as listed. Just a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station, it made getting around Washington very easy! We felt safe and there was very little noise. Had a great time, and would definitely stay with Lisa again - she was very accommodating and helpful.

Lisa literally could do no more for me and my friend when we stayed over for a few nights. A great pad which is no more than a 5 min walk to the nearest metro. You will not be disappointed choosing this accommodation.

Lisa's lovely apartment was the perfect home away from home for our weekend visit. We had everything we needed: great wifi, a super comfortable bed, nicely appointed bathroom and kitchen, even a welcome bottle of wine! The location was perfect, it was an easy 5 minute walk to a metro station. Communication with Lisa before the trip was great. She anticipated anything we could have needed. The apartment is 2 flights up with no elevator. This was not a problem for us at all, but for someone with mobility issues, it might be more difficult, especially with luggage. We loved our stay and would definitely stay there again when we visit D.C.

Lisa was great and met us at the apartment with a parking pass which was critical. She left a bottle of really good wine for us. The Location was perfect for being a tourist, close to the Metro and walking distance to shopping and lots of restaurants

I am a 33 year old attorney and work for the government. I am from Boston and have called DC my hole for nine years. I love travel, reading, writing, fashion, arts, music and food. I have been hosting on Airbnb since 2012 and love staying in Airbnb homes while traveling; it is always a pleasure meeting the wonderful people who stay in my home as well as the people who allow me to stay in theirs.
