Guest Feedback

Here is feedback from previous guests at this Shirlington Stay unit:

“This was a great place to stay with a family. Nearby parks, stores, and restaurants made the weekends and evenings a joy and life was easily walkable. The kitchen was well stocked, the Wi-Fi was fast enough to support working from home, and there were enough linens to allow for leisurely laundry schedules. Right outside the door was a bus stop that gets you to the Pentagon in 15 minutes and central D.C. within 30, even during rush hour. We don’t regret the nearly 6 months spent here.” Joshua G. (June 2020)

“It was great” Daniel S. (November 2019)

“Our stay was truly wonderful. Andre was quick to respond to any requests or issues. The apartment is well appointed and very clean. The location can’t be beat. Would not hesitate to book again or recommend.” Amie B. (August 2019)

“I had a wonderful experience leading from Andre! He is always available day or night to answer questions or meet the needs of his tenants. He was extremely pleasant, prompt, and helpful with every communication with me. The property was roomy, clean, well maintained, inviting, and attractively furnished. Being an end unit it invited plenty of light morning, noon, and afternoon! I especially liked the heated floor on my feet in the retro bathroom on cold winter mornings :-). The updated kitchen was well appointed and had everything a guest needs to get up and running quickly. When making adjustments to my stay, Andre was very reasonable in discussing options that met the needs of both owner and guest and took the stress out of my move to a longer term lease elsewhere! It was a great experience I invite others to try!” Chet M. (May 2019)

“We stayed in the condo for 3 months during a renovation of our home. The unit had absolutely everything for a long term stay.
It was 100% turn-key with a fully stocked kitchen, linens and towels, and even laundry and cleaning supplies. We initially brought some of our own things for the kitchen and bath but it was totally unnecessary. It is a 3rd floor walk-up but you get used to it quickly and it is worth being on the top floor. That being said, having lived in a lower floor apt before, we tried to be cognizant of the people below us on the 2nd floor by not wearing our shoes as much as the floor is a bit creaky with age. The beds are really comfortable. Parking was more than adequate, never an issue. Andre is incredibly responsive when there is something you might need. Overall an A+.” Elizabeth G. (April 2018)

“Look no further, stay here! This place is great. The only draw back is the climb up 3 flights to get the apartment. It is a small issue though. The apartment is just right. The furniture is sturdy, functional and comfortable. The kitchen is really nice and very well equipped. The beds are super comfortable. The best part is the location. The neighborhood is very friendly. We stayed here for a month with our small dog. There were always people walking dogs or babies outside. People stopped to say hello, one nice woman carried dog treats and never failed to give something to my dog. That is so nice when you are away from home. You are in walking distance of Shirlington with its restaurants and theaters. We enjoyed getting a cold one at the brewery. We even took the time to see a play at the theater. Drive the other way on King street and you are in Old Town. Be sure to try Duck Donuts in the Safeway shopping center on the right hand side of King street, amazing donuts! The 4 mile run trail is also close giving access to biking, flat running and people watching. The metro bus is literally right outside the door, just a few stops and you are at the Pentagon station. Checkin was a breeze and Andre has 2 notebooks with information waiting for you. Look no further! I highly recommend this place. It it easy to get anywhere in DC with the metro bus right outside. I highly recommend staying here.” Jody C. (October 2017)

“Shirlington Stay is in a quiet, clean, and safe area with easy access to the Pentagon and Metro. It is well maintained and comfortable. Consider walking the short distance to Shirlington Village for a nice dinner and movie.” Keith K. (September 2017)

“The experience at Andre’s is best that Airbnb has to offer. The man is a true professional and runs his place as such. The apartment was perfectly clean and offered everything that the guest would need in terms of the dining in and food preparation. Access to the metro is very easy via the bus right outside the door. I commuted daily into DC with very little issue. We liked the rather central location that provided easy access to all things in and outside the beltway. We loved walking to Shirlington with the restaurants and other amenities. Several great dog parks nearby as well. Not cheap, but you get what you a pay for great beds, excellent TVs, etc… Everything was quality.” Jonathan J. (June 2017)

“This was our first experience with this type of rental so we were apprehensive about the process, the quality of rental, and how the process would work out. Everything was seamless, Andre was very organized, presenting us with clear move in details and met us at the home in order to further assure that all aspects of living at Shirlington were clear. We had an amazing experience with our Shirlington Stay and could have enjoyed our stay without having a rental car. ” Olivia M. (April 2017)

“This was a great home for our family!” Elizabeth (February 2017)

“The apartment is a gem.” Allyson D. (January 2017)

“We have loved staying here again, and all of the amenities are covered with so many extras. The sheets and bed are always super comfortable, and there is nothing more than we could want for. Thank you for providing such a wonderful home away from home.” Amanda N. (December 2016)

“Location is great, service great, comfortable furnishings, Andre’s thought of everything. Just an awesome place, wish I were moving here rather than the house I just bought…. :)” Mark E. (September 2016)

“My parents had a wonderful time here. I have no comments on how to better improve this. Out of ten I give it a ten” Solyana H. (June 2016)

“Our stay here has been extremely good.Would recommend this house for people who are looking for a quality living !!” Pavanmeet D. (May 2016)

“The apartment had amazingly comfortable beds! We felt as close to home as possible, while being away. Thank you so much for your attention to detail. Andre was incredibly thorough in his instructions and very easy to work with. The property was exactly as described and we experienced no issues during the stay. This was a work related stay and we will definitely rebook when back in the area!” Amanda M. (May 2016)

“Shirlington Stay is an absolute gem. I have stayed in numerous furnished houses/apartments, and this apartment has all the things you not only need but the ones you want. In the pictures, the apartment appears very nice. It’s actually nicer than the pictures depict. Andre, the owner, is very responsive and truly cares about your happiness in the apartment. The location is fantastic with close & easy access to Shirlington, the metro and Baily’s Crossing. We stayed in the apartment for more than 10 months and were completely happy!” Amy W. (September 2015)

“Our stay has been extremely comfortable and pleasurable. The apartment is in a wonderful location, and we couldn’t have asked for faster responses from Andre. We have already recommended the apartment to several friends, and we would stay here again in the future when back for training. Thank you for an excellent 6 weeks. This was WAY better than staying in other corporate housing.” Amanda N. (September 2014)

 “It has been a very pleasant experience; there have really been no problems or issues and Andre has been very responsive and helpful.” Audrey K.  (July 2014)

“Excellent.  All was as promised.” Kathy W. (June 2014)

“The experience  was great. Thank you. Andre was every time ready to resolve little problems like parking or swimming pool pass. You are great and I will suggest our company to all my friends.
Thanks thanks thanks. ” Massimo M. (May 2014)

“We stayed for three months! We had a very enjoyable stay at the apartment. I think it’s best features are the T.V.+Tivo, the washer and dryer, and a great neighborhood. Andre was always trying to improve our stay and answered our concerns promptly. It worked perfectly for three people and the bus/metro location is convenient enough.” Hannah B. (March 2014)

“I loved living here! It was a very comfortable stay in a very nice location in Shirlington, next to a very convenient Metrobus stop. Nothing’s more convenient than a 20-second walk to a bus stop. A group of three of us was in urgent need of a place that could accommodate all of us, and we were absolutely lucky when we found this furnished apartment. As there were three of us, Andre was more than open to refurnishing the loft into a practical third bedroom. And it worked out perfectly! Although the apartment may look like it has just two bedrooms, it can accommodate three people just fine! Andre was both responsible and responsive – responding to communication swiftly and accommodating repair requests without trouble. All in all, I could not have asked for a more hospitable landlord. I will definitely have memories of this place!” Gabriel I. (March 2014)

“I have used temporary housing all over the world, but Shirlington Stay has been my best experience, to date. I needed to find housing quickly and Andre, the property manager, bent over backwards to accommodate my every need. The property was spacious, immaculately clean and state-of-the-art (while still maintaining its WWII Era charm)…very comfortable! The location was perfect, as I needed quick and easy access to northern Virginia, downtown DC and southern Maryland. I didn’t need to use the trains or buses, but knew that if I did, they were all within walking distance…a conveniently centralized place to stay! Additionally, the neighborhood was beautifully lined with trees, kept clean and felt extremely safe. I would feel perfectly secure having my mother stay there by herself. In all, this was a GREAT option for housing at a very fair price – and I definitely plan on staying there again the next time I visit the Washington, DC area.” Christian M. (October 2013)

“This was a wonderful find for me.  I dropped a pending Oakwood contract due to a number of factors that made Shirlington Stay more appealing.  One is that they were upfront with the terms and cost (Oakwood was not and could not give a good outline of the application process or guarantee a specific apartment); the location appealed to me; the price was great for temporary housing and the appeal of working with a smaller local business were all draws for me.  The experience has been wonderful.  Responsive management that fixed items from previous tenants right away, clean/stylish place with full amenities, and an easy check in/check out process.  The Shirlington Stay is really spacious, and felt like home.” P.M. (September 2013)

“We enjoyed living in Shirlington.  It’s a great community, close to shopping and public transportation.  We were very comfortable in our condo – it was nicely furnished and had everything we needed.  Also, the management was highly responsive.” Tammy R. (August 2013)

“Awesome!!!! Made our vacation pleasant and enjoyable.  Andre was the greatest! He was very hospitable, friendly, and very informative.  From the time we first saw the property on the internet all the way until we left, Andre went way beyond regular service to make this stay a success.  I felt like we were staying at a friend’s apartment versus just another rental place.  Definitely a 11 on a scale from 1 to 10! Location, price, and suitability are what makes this a great place to stay.  Service can’t be matched anywhere when it comes to Andre! THANKS!!” Steve P. (March 2013)

“Such a positive, yet professional experience that made me feel like I was at a home away from home.  Kudos!” Kenny K. (October 2012)

“The shuttle was pretty easy to figure out.  There is a stop, literally, right outside the front door.  I’d share the Next Bus link that I use at home and on my iPhone to see when the next bus is coming:  7Y and 7E primarily run during work hours, with 7Y being most regular, 7A and 7F primarily run after working hours. All lines go to/from the Pentagon in about 10 minutes.  Super convenient!” Brian M. (March 2012)
