Uncle Brutha's place was better than I expected. Everything was clean and comfortable. He made sure to come introduce himself and check to make sure everything we needed was provided. Fun fact, he makes hot sauce and won a competition for it. Anyways, this place is awesome and I would recommend it to anyone I know traveling to D.C.

All in all the accommodations were as advertised and great for the price and location. Uncle Brutha was very kind to our family and responsive to our needs. The basement is spacious with plenty of room for an air mattress which we brought with us. I would say the couch bed would be tight for two people to sleep comfortably. Overall it’s plenty of space for 4 people even though it’s 1 bedroom. Free street parking was a nice perk and always available. Very gracious host - would highly recommend!
