My apartment is located 2 mins walk from the Metro, 1 min walk to a 24-hr supermarket and a shopping mall complex. In a very convenient and safe area. To see D.C., the apartment is only a few stops by metro to the very center of Washington D.C.
No pets, no noises of parties. No oily and smoky cooking. Some basic house rules, for example, unplug the electronic products after using to avoid fire; close the door while being away; go green and save the planet, etc.
