I had an awesome stay at Jim's apartment. The studio is perfect for an extended stay. The apartment is right across the street from the Iwo Jima memorial, and when the trees are not fully-leaved you can see it from the window. The metro is a 5-minute walk away. The closets are very spacious, and the kitchen is modern with all appliances (including a gas stove)! Linens and towels were provided. Laundry is on-site in the building. The apartment complex also has a gym (in the same building), convenience store, barber, and dry cleaner. Probably the biggest drawback is that you cannot control the temperature. Once I asked Jim about this, though, he immediately offered to bring me either a fan or a heater, whichever I needed. He had it there the next day. Jim is a very accommodating and gracious host. He responded immediately any time I had to ask him a question. If you have any issues during your stay just let him know, and he will work quickly to resolve them!
The photo on the website is exactly what you see - you have THE VIEW of DC - all the major monuments plus the river. I used the bike share bikes (right outside the apartment complex) and was in downtown DC in 15 minutes - the location is just perfect. Jim is an attentive host who thinks ahead about what his guests need, and checks in and provides information to make sure it's all going well. The amenities are great (if you're there in summer the pool in the complex is big and well looked after), there's a gym, a supermarket and a hairdresser on site. It's just a short walk to the metro, and a very nice walk to Georgetown over the bridge. The metro station is just a few stops from Washington National Airport, and there is direct bus to Dulles, so it's perfectly located for getting in and out of DC. I was in DC for 3 months and found the apartment to be just what I wanted: well located, clean, well set up, and with Jim as the host it all went so smoothly. Very very strongly recommend Jim's place.
Jim’s place at River Place South is a gem amidst the bustling DC area and Jim is the most fabulous host I’ve ever encountered in all of my rental experiences. The efficient and well equipped unit, with an incredible view of downtown Washington, DC is a close walk to Rosslyn Metro, several walking and biking trails, the Marine Corps War Memorial, restaurants, shopping, etc. It’s also a lovely walk from the unit over the Francis Scott Key Bridge to Georgetown, to explore. The property has several amenities such as gym, pool, playground, on property neighbor market, dry cleaning, barber/salon. This is a great place to call “home” while staying in DC area! Thank you, Jim for being an awesome host! Hope to return ahead as often as possible.
Staying at one of Jim's places in the D.C. area is the best decision you can make. I am grateful that I did. Once you stay in his studio you will notice the attention to detail and care he puts into his properties. Further, he is a gracious and accommodating host who cares for the people that stay in his apartments. He also responds to any inquiries immediately.
Jim’s place was fantastic and he is the best host I have ever had. The apartment was more spacious than the photographs suggest, with lots of natural light and a good amenities, especially in the kitchen for long term guests cooking regularly. The building is well kept, with access to a gym and a wonderful swimming pool in the summer months. The location couldn’t be more convenient, with a short 10 min walk to Rosslyn metro station. Around Rosslyn are plenty of eateries and a Safeway supermarket, with more restaurants over the bridge in Georgetown. Three metro lines take you into central Washington DC meanwhile the circulator bus is useful for Georgetown and Dupont Circle. Jim was kind enough to show me around the local area and make suggestions for tourist activities and restaurants. If I ever return to Arlington, I would stay here again and again and again!
River Place is a great location to make your way around DC and Jim is a superb host. The unit is well-maintained, very stylish, clean and comfortable, and your host is quick to respond to questions and concerns. I used the unit for an extended work-related stay and highly recommend it to other professionals who need to be in the DC area on extended business. Would stay again!
After my stay, I am convinced there is no better host than Jim. Despite being out of the country for a portion of my stay, Jim responded promptly (always within one hour and, more often than not, within 10 minutes) to my every inquiry or request. Because Jim was only a mouse-click or phone call away, he was always willing and able to accommodate any need. If my stay was any indication, care for the comfort of his guests is Jim's paramount concern. I can honestly say it was a true privilege to get to know Jim. In addition to Jim's amity and solicitude, the unit in which I stayed was fully and smartly furnished with all necessary amenities for a stay of any duration. The place comes complete with a fully-equipped kitchen, personal high speed internet, towels, linens, soap, etc. In the building, guests have access to a gym and a pool which are both first-rate facilities (clean, modern, and convenient). The lobby is sleek and contemporary and all personnel working in the building are kind and welcoming. Guests will feel right at home in this environment. Whether visiting the D.C. area for business or personal reasons, I cannot recommend Jim and his place highly enough.
Jim's place is incredible! The apartment was clean, comfortable and a perfect location for what we needed. The view out the window is unreal! Jim is a class-act and makes the experience stress free and easy! He is a reliable communicator and explains important details with clarity. We would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
Jim's place is great. It is in a great location. The amenities are awesome btw the pool and gym. I would definitely recommend people to stay here.
You will not find a better host or a better location to stay if your are planning a visit to Arlington or DC. The unit is outstanding and the view is incredible. The building is wrapping up a beautiful lobby renovation, complete with an inviting new fireplace. The fitness facility is second to none. it met all my aerobic and strength training needs; and the 18 mile Mount Vernon trail was literally right out the back door. It was incredibly easy to use the Metro; a very short walk to the Rosslyn Station. It was also easy for me to walk over to Georgetown. As I already mentioned, Jim is an excellent host. Anything I needed, he was very accommodating.
The apartment was everything as advertised: it's clean, quiet and well-positioned in a wonderful location close to every mode of major transportation. Along with a range of attractive eating options in the neighborhood, Georgetown and the Monuments beckon within walking distance (or just a short taxi ride away), depending on one's mood and inclination. This is a great option for anyone seeking affordable lodging in a safe and well-maintained environment in the DMV.
We are a repeat customer of Jim's. We originally stayed at anther of his tremendous properties but ended up coming back and staying with Jim again. He is the most conscientious, kind, thoughtful and responsive host we have ever stayed with. Jim works incredibly hard to be sure the tenant's needs are taken care of and everything is attended to both in the apartment and in the check in process. The apartment itself is lovely and very well appointed. The kitchen was nice and the place had very good closet space and storage. Everything is spotless and Jim is an email or text away to make sure everything works very well. We couldn't have been any happier with the apartment, the neighborhood or Jim -- all superb.
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.
