    I wanted to send a quick note of thanks to DJ For taking care of a few things happening in my apartment in a short amount of time! He is always quick to respond and make sure his projects get carried out all the way through. He is good about keeping me informed about how long something will take, when he will get to it, etc. I truly appreciate his communication and follow-through!

    I have lived in 1600 16th street for 18 months, and enjoyed my stay so far. I worked until 7 pm daily so the overall noise is only about the traffic on 16th street. The neighborhood is lively and energic.

    I was 2 years in the shelter system. When I walked into Parkwest and met Angela, she greeted me with a smile. She never made me feel like I was less than. I really appreciate her patience and understanding. Thank You Ms. Angela for everything, You helped me a lot.

    I have lived here for almost three years now. I love the property; it is clean, and well appointed, the staff are nice and friendly, and the units are big for a studio apt. I definitely would recommend living here to a friend, I love my unit and the apartment complex. It is close to shops, the metro, and grocery stores, as well as good restaurants in Cleveland Park.

    5/5 Annonymous on Dec 20, 2023

    I've lived at 3801 for 4 years and have loved it. Great masonry building - very quiet, with large rooms and plenty of closet space. The property is located between the Cleveland Park and Van Ness Metro stations with everything one could need within walking distance. There is a parking garage under the building and there are always spaces available for rent. Front desk and front office staff are terrific and provide great service in collecting, accounting for and urging pick-up of a HUGE number of packages. Maintenance is virtually immediate and generally effective on the first visit. I have met folks in the building who have lived here 30, 40 and even 50 years. That says a lot about this building.

    I've lived in twin oaks for 16 years. I moved out because i bought a condo. Living there has been a wonderful experience --the staff are friendly; maintenance timely, and while the neighborhood can be lively and loud, once you are inside you apartment, you can't hear anything your neighbors in their units. The location can't be beat either. I really missed the place.

    I should be surprised that about a dozen of DC’s top landlord companies are suspected of colluding with a software company in order to inorganically force their residents into an 8% rent increase despite it supposedly being a rent controlled region. But I have developed a tougher, calloused-over heart in recent years and for that, I have DC to thank.
