cheryl s. It was a wonderful stay. Sunny is a lovely hostess.


April 2017

We had never used an online BNB service and we were thrilled! The home is very modern and clean. This gave our family of 5 so much more room than a hotel, plus was a lot cheaper. Sunny was very accommodating and available to help if needed.

Madalina T. This apartment was perfect for our family of 3 and our dog. Sunny was more than accommodating. The apartment had anything you would need, and Sunny even left coffee for us and treats for our dog. She had great suggestions for restaurants nearby, and ways to get around. She was the perfect host. The apartment is large, very well maintained and very clean. We would definitely rent this again when we go back to DC.


June 2017

Our stay in the Zen apartment was great. Everything was ready for our arrival and the owners gave us a warm welcome. The place is bigger than it appears in the pictures. We were five and were very comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need and the bathroom was impecable. We had a car so transportation was not an issue, but the location is excellent and public buses run very close by. The place is next to the woods and a beautiful trail. I would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again.
