I rented the unit for my parents' visit. We had a good time in the studio. Since I live in the same community myself I know the area pretty well. It's close to everything, metro, buses including one to IAD, plenty of restaurants on Wilson Blvd. and a Safeway and CVS grocery market within walking distance. The unit is comfortable for two persons. A nice gym is in the same building and you will be able to use it with registration, which costs 50 bucks. The studio itself is well-decorated and clean, with the furnitures, towels and cookwares you would generally expect at your own house. Some utensils are old but pretty usable. Also Jim is very responsive and always helpful. Overall, it is a great staying experience.
I really felt at home during my extended stay here. The apartment itself was fantastic - it both looked amazing, and was comfortable and had everything I needed. It is also in a great location. Jim himself was wonderful, easy to get in touch with, quick to respond, friendly, approachable, and clearly keen to ensure I had the best stay possible, going above and beyond to accommodate my needs. I highly recommend both him and his lovely apartment/
This apartment in the Rossyln section of Arlington, Virginia is clean, spacious, neat, nicely laid out and a perfect alternative to Washington DC's overpriced hotels. It is in a modern apartment complex with health facilities, pool and laundry room, which you have access to. In addition, the host was extremely nice, helpful and flexible. Although I showed up by car--he thought I was taking the train from New York--he scrambled to arrange free parking in the complex (though there is reasonably priced parking available for a nightly fee as well). Can't say enough about how cool he is!
I stayed in this lovely apartment for one month and really enjoyed my stay there. The apartment is located in Rosslyn just five minutes away from the Rosslyn Metro station and just two stops away from DC. You just have to walk about 10-15 minutes to Georgetown. So it is located very central. The Apartment itself was fantastic. It has everything what you need (towels, hair dryer, linens, tv, books, walk-in closet, kitchenware, etc.). The landlord Jim is a perfect host. He even welcomed me with flowers and a bottle of wine. The communication was perfect. He always answered within a few minutes and was very helpful . I really recommend his apartment for a stay in Virginia/ DC.
My stay at Jim’s apartment was a very pleasant and convenient experience. From start to finish (literally), Jim was there for me. Upon arrival, he met me, explained the features of the apartment and helped me with other stuff such as laundry (he provided me a card with enough credit to do a cycle of washing and drying), and cable TV (he drove me to the cable office to get an all-in-one set up) and orientation (he drove me around the neighborhood, pointing out restaurants and other point so interests. The apartment itself was as advertised: snazzy, yet cozy, conveniently located (e.g., to the Rosslyn metro and a 15 minute walk to Georgetown) and well appointed. All in all then, a thumbs up for Jim and his abode! I recommend it without reserve.
Jim was an incredible host. Not only was his apartment a great place to stay, Jim went out of his way to accommodate my needs and ensure that my stay was as hassle-free as possible. Giving a bottle of wine as a welcome gift was also a nice touch! I can wholeheartedly recommend Jim as a host without any qualifications, and would happily stay at one of his apartments whenever I'm in the DC area.
Jim's place was just right for our stay. Perfect location a block from the Rosslyn Metro with on-property grocery. An efficient space with plenty of room for two travelers. Jim was easy to reach, flexible, and welcoming. I'd recommend this property to anyone looking for efficient quarters while visiting DC. As a seasoned DC tourist, the price, amenities, and location of Jim's property beats any on-sale hotel in DC or Virginia. A great experience and happy to recommend with five stars.
Jim was absolutely wonderful for the week I stayed with him. He made sure that all my needs were taking care of to include getting me signed up to use the gym, and providing a nice bottle of wine as a welcome gift! The studio was light, bright and airy and the views were amazing. I highly recommend staying with Jim, and plan to do so in fhe future as well.
Jim is a dream to work with--responsive, polite, accommodating, an honest, upstanding guy. The place and the location are fabulous. Have no concerns about staying there; this is one of those "we got lucky!" listings.
Jim and the apartment are the best package for a stay in Washington DC. Jim always cared for us perfectly and made everything we needed possible. The apartment is very clean und newly furnitured so that we really felt like home from the first day on. The look from the apartment towards the Captiol, Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial is overwhelming and the sights are reachable within 15 minutes walk. Perfect spot.
A wonderful rental experience was had by my wife and myself......Jim went far out of his way to provide us with a beautiful introduction to Washington D.C. with a guided tour in his automobile and a delicious bottle of wine that showed the true intent of his hospitality. Like the story of the three bears....the bed and the apartment in general was neither "too soft nor too hard"...the apartment was just right...providing us with just the perfect balance of ambience, utility and convenience. I had forgotten to take a earlier provided instruction sheet on how to get to his apartment complex...and came to realize that it was but a six minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro...how convenient! We urge all readers to consider Jim's apartment...it is "..just right...".
Jim was an excellent host! The apartment was just what we needed for our Washington adventure. It's close to a major Metro hub which was very convenient. Great complex, near restaurants and the CVS was right on the way to/from the Metro. And the view is exactly as you see in the pictures! Glorious especially at night! The apt is definitely a studio arrangement but the amenities were spot-on, on-site laundry facility was convenient. We'll stay there again the next time we're in the DC area!
Jim is a fine host and sees to every detail one could imagine. He is genuinely concerned about the comfort and quality of one's stay, and always seeks feedback to continue to improve. He is the kind of host that gives Airbnb a stellar reputation and that keeps me coming back. Staying at Jim's place is far better than any hotel.
This apartment was absolutely perfect for the two of us. The views are spectacular day and night. Susan and I appreciated the decorative touches chosen by Jim—it suited our style to a tee. The bed was comfortable, the shower was powerful and the kitchen was adequate for cooking an occasional dinner. The location? Ideal, and the Rosslyn metro stop was a shorter walk than you might think. In addition, Jim was the perfect host, caring, articulate and genuine. We won't soon forget our wonderful trip to DC and Number 422 at River Place South.
This was the best apartment I ever lived in. I stayed here for 2 months and everything from location, amenities, and of course the view, was superb. Jim was always there for anything I needed, which wasn't much because the place is set up perfectly. I will be returning to DC in the next two years and will definitely stay at RPS 422. Thanks Jim for an incredible experience!!
Jim I was a great host. He was always very careful to make our stay tremendous. His apartment is so comfortable and River Place is a lovely place. It is so close to metro station (5 minute walk) and to Georgetown (10 minutes walk). If we have the opportunity, we will definitely satyr at his apartment on future trips.
We had a great time staying at Jim's apt. It was just perfect for us. Jim was so nice. He took us around the neighborhood and showed us some of the basics such as metro stop and a favorite eating place. His apt is very close to the metro which was a big plus for us. Jim was available to answer any questions we had during the trip. We could not been happier with our choice. We highly recommend this choice. We hope to visit again. Angie and Lou
Jim is great! He was very accomodating, even on a very short notice. He is kind, understanding and a concerned host. The apartment was very comfy and the view incredible. Location? Very convenient, even for somebody that needs to go into D.C. evey day. Thanks Jim!!!!
It was a great experience -- the apartment was beautiful and the location was exactly what we wanted. We're looking forward to staying here again.
