We had a great time while staying at Lillie Ann's. She is a very lovely person who really knows the inside scoop on the D.C. area and can provide a lot of money-saving tips about getting around etc. The apartment was clean and comfortable with all you need for a home away from home. Be sure to ask to see Lillie Ann'a art as she does some really neat work. We were so impressed we asked to purchase one of her pieces. Can't say enough nice things about her.

Lovely stay at a lovely place with a lovely host!

The apartment was small, but just perfect for two people. Facilities were clean and comfortable. Stayed here during the week of the Delta National Convention. Easy accessibility to metro rail and quick ride to the Convention Center. Had a great stay.

Pros: Great place; feel at home; convenient to the Metro (train) station; value for money. Con: key-entry to the main door needs lubrication (very minor maintenance)
Lems0001 June 01, 2013
Our stay at Ann's place was very pleasant for the most part. The room was very clean, and the bathroom was very nice and spotless. We found her to also be very welcoming and generous; an overall nice person. The only complaint I have is that for two twenty-something girls, we didn't feel the safest in the neighborhood when we had to walk to the subway station. If you are a young girl, I would carry some pepper spray just to be safe! Otherwise, it was a great stay!

I am a Canadian graduate student and stayed at Ann and Sosimo's place for two weeks. I had a great experience there. The apartment was clean, private and had all the amenities one would need for a short stay. Ann and Sosimo were great hosts, they struck the perfect balance between respecting privacy and making themselves available. Sosimo was kind enough to drive me to a local grocery store in my first week, and Ann would send me a message every couple of days just to be sure I was ok. Like much of DC, the neighbourhood is in the process of gentrifying. It is a little rough around the edges, but I was never made to feel unsafe. Overall, a great stay and incredible value for the money.

Thank you very much for the great stay. I was in DC on business and needed somewhere to stay. This was perfect for my needs. The place was spotless and everything that I needed was provided for. The hosts were great and were easily contacted before and during the stay. I would definitely stay here again if I was in town for business.
Kimmyfro September 06, 2012
The studio apartment is lovely, clean, and spacious. Ann (the owner) was really welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed - it was practically like staying in a hotel with the added benefit of being able to cook for myself and do laundry. The studio is in a quiet and friendly area that's also only a five minute walk to the metro and three metro stops from Eastern market and Capitol Hill. I definitely recommend staying here and I hope to be back someday.
Sergey_kutas September 02, 2012
Everything was great. The room was equipped with everything you need and was very comfortable in the room was also a personal shower, toilet and kitchen. The hosts are very nice people. All the neighbors in the area were very welcoming. If I ever again go to DC, I'll gladly stops these guys.
Chriskennedy4 July 25, 2012
Cozy and clean accommodations and the bathroom is huge! Quiet and friendly neighborhood. Less than a 5 minute walk to the metro and only a 5-6 minute walk to the grocery store. I'd definitely recommend this apartment.
Adjuster July 10, 2012
Ann was very nice, room and bathroom are very clean, bed is comfortable, wireless internet worked great, parking was right out front, for the price you can't beat it... Would have stayed longer but she was already booked! Thanks again...

Clean & convenient. If you want to explore the neighborhood: Cultural Tourism DC has a self-guided walk through Deanwood, available at: http://www.culturaltourismdc.org/sites/default/files/pdf/Deanwood_English_booklet_final.pdf

I changed my itinerary because the weather and couldn't go. Thank You.
Idovgel May 17, 2012
I stayed in the apartment for 3 days and I would stay there again and will recommend it to my friends, this is a great option for a single person or a couple, especially considering the price: 1 – apartment is clean and has all necessary things to feel comfortable: kitchen appliances, tea and coffee, Wi-Fi, TV, hairdryer and hygiene products and other things to feel absolutely comfortable while staying. 2 – it’s a very quiet place and the bed was really comfortable to have a good rest after busy day. 3 – apartment is private, I was absolutely independent to come and leave any time of the day or night. 4 – you can find in some comments that the area is considered to be not very safe, however from my experience it was absolutely quiet with residential houses only. And I used to come back (walking from the metro station) very late in evenings. 5 – apartment is only 4 min of walk from the metro station, which was absolutely convenient since I was not driving I enjoyed staying in the apartment and would do that again! Thank you, Ann :)

Nice, cozy apartment. Close to metro station (5 mins walk). Ann is a great host, very helpful. She kindly showed us around when we first got to the neighborhood.
Punkyandpuddin March 26, 2012
We would definitely stay here again. The apartment is very convenient to the metro and Ann is a great host who thought of pretty much everything (and you can't beat the price!)

We are a couple from Germany and stayed two weeks at Anns apartment. It is a very nice place, lovely decorated, clean and there is everything you need: Private bathroom, big comfortable bed, excess to the washing machine room and an own kitchen even with microwave, fridge, freezer, stove and cable TV. We totally loved it from the beginning!!! Although we did not have the chance to meet Ann in person until the last day, we felt warmly welcomed since the beginning. She is answering emails immediately and is ready to help whenever you have a question. The area of her house might be known as not very safe, but we cannot confirm this for her street. It is just a few minutes to walk to the Metro station, the police is driving through frequently and except of one little store at the end of the street you just find nice family houses as neighbors. We felt safe and will always choose her apartment for rent again once we come back to DC.

I enjoyed staying here, and I will stay again if I visit DC in the future. I am from Australia, and I stayed in the apartment for about 6 weeks while visiting DC for work. The street is small, friendly, and leafy, and is only a few minute walk to the metro. The neighborhood is quiet and residential, with a really nice community feel, and is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city at the end of each day in DC. Using the metro you can arrive in the middle of the city 20 minutes after walking out the front door of the apartment. Ann and her partner Sazimo are lovely, and live upstairs. They are a busy professional couple who are easy and interesting to chat with, and they happily made sure that I was happy and comfortable in the apartment. The apartment is 100% private, with everything that is needed to live comfortably and self-sufficiently. The kitchen is very functional, and I cooked almost ever night I stayed. The bed is very comfy! There is high-speed wifi internet. I would recommend this place to family and friends.

Clean, comfortable, thoughtfully furnished apartment in a quiet residential area. Very suitable for an extended stay. Three blocks from a Metro stop (which is 5 or 6 stops on the train from the D.C.'s tourism center) and six-plus blocks from a supermarket, but the larger neighborhood does not offer other attractions. The host is delightful in person and responds promptly to questions or requests, but she is often away, respects guests' privacy, and communicates by short e-mails.
Brendanking82 October 19, 2011
The house was very nice and conveniently located near the Minnesota Ave metro station allowing easy access to all of the great DC attractions. The owner was also very nice.
Ewlorenz October 03, 2011
I enjoyed my stay at this apartment. It is secluded and quiet and has all the amenities that I need to be comfortable. The short walk to to Metro served my transportation needs and nearby stores are available for groceries and sundries. The host was very helpful on one occasion when I needed a tool to fix my phone and otherwise respected my privacy completely. I would stay here again for an extended visit to Washington, DC.

Very nice little apartment, greatly furnished.
Niborecir August 15, 2011
The apartment was really clean and new. I would definitely stay there again.

Definetly FEEDBACK POSITIVE I spent two weeks at this nice studio. The place is very clean and confortable. I had everything I needed in the kitchen and bathroom, and the land lord is very kind and friendly, also the neighbors. If I come back to DC I´ll look for this place to stay. Ileana Yen (from Mexico)
Missmyhusband July 31, 2011
This place was great! Anytime I ever visit D.C. this is where I'm staying. It is perfect for a couple or a single person. Bed was very comfortable. The tub was just what I needed at the end of each day after walking all around D.C.! The land lord was great. She made sure everything was perfect. I don't have a single complaint about this place or my stay. It was really wonderful.

Very clean. Very nice studio apartment. Not in the best neighborhood, but it also wasn't terrible. Street parking on the weekdays is NOT free. You need a permit.

Room was great. Large clean bathroom with spa, plenty of clean towels and soap provided. Washer/dryer in unit with laundry detergent provided. Plenty of clean sheets and hangers in the closet. Kitchen had everything I needed, bed was large and comfortable. Had a problem with the hot water on day 1 but fixed the same day, and landlord was very helpful and accomodating, and promptly replied to all messages/calls. Thanks for a great 2 week stay!!
