Chillum is very close to the District of Columbia: one block! . The area is safe and it is not congested with traffic.
The condo is 20 minutes from downtown DC, with normal traffic via North Capitol Ave.
Ten minutes from the University of Maryland and from the Washington Medical Center.
A huge Giant supermarket is around the block and WalMart is 5 blocks away.


I recommend a car although it is not essential. My condo comes with a free parking pass for the parking lot. Several of my neighbors walk to Ft Totten Metro, it is one mile away. If you do not want to walk, there are several nearby bus lines running to the station. There are also affordable cabs (7.00 US to the station) and Uber

PARKING PASS: I will give you a parking tag if you ask me for it in advance. Because of several instances of guests not returning parking pass I will only hand them in person (not with self check in) and in exchange of a cash deposit of 100.00 (You may also send me the deposit via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)) . I will return you the money when you give me the parking pass. The are no exceptions for this policy.

This is a quiet place. Lots of professionals and families. The walls are thin but my neighbors and I are very careful with noise. No loud music, no loud TV, no parties. It is very restful and peaceful. Please keep it that way. Normal living noises are perfectly fine, just be very considerate of those living next to and under you.
Heat and AC are centrally provided to the whole building. In winter we have strong heat and in summer powerful AC. When the heat is on, there is no AC. The conversion to AC happens in May. That means that there may be a couple hot days in April when there is no AC. You May open the windows and we provide a fan.

Our stay at Julio's apartment was very comfortable. We really enjoyed it. The apartment is about a mile away from the metro station. A bus stop station is in front of the house gate and the bus rides you to the metro station. Downtown is also accessible by car through North Capitol st . The parking in D.C area is by pay. Julio is a very friendly and polite host.

We stayed at Julio's apartment for 2 weeks and it was perfect. It's bright and light, a great size for 2 people, and is in a great location for traveling by car or metro in the DC/MD area. The apartment was an oasis after the hot and humid DC summer days and the beds were super-comfy! Julio was lovely and helpful throughout the process.

This condo was perfect for our family of 3 (older teen) working as volunteers at a festival on the National Mall for 10 days. The grocery was walkable, and buses within a block took us to one of two nearby Metro Stations. It was a relief not to have to drive in the DC area, which can be very frustrating. We cooked almost all our meals, but were a short drive from Takoma Park and Silver Springs, both of which have a huge variety of eating options, and entertainment. The building was very quiet and our neighbors were nice. This is a very diverse neighborhood of working and professional people, and we were welcomed into the mix. Parking on-site made our lives easier. The condo was nicely furnished and had everything we needed to be comfortable and make dinner after a long day in the DC heat. We hope to come back again next year!

Hi. I am a college professor. I live and work in Pennsylvania with my husband Gio. We also have a condo in the DC area where we spend the weekends or whenever we have free time. We travel to the Dominican Republic every year and we always stay with airbnb hosts.
