College Apartment

Its close to AU which is ideal for students, however their constant presence does take a toll on the building. Weekends are very loud. Rent in pricy but - hey - we live in DC. View is amazing and there are often beautiful sunsets. It's a good temporary place, but I wouldn't want to live here forever.

Management problems

I went to American University and just moved out from Avalon. I've lived here for the past three years and I'm glad I can write a review. Avalon came to my apartment to do a move out inspection, and charged us a certain amount of damage fees. Me and my roommates paid in full amount on time. Avalon insisted that we owe them $200 for two key fobs that were missing. I clearly remembered that I returned them the day after we moved out and asked the office if i was all set. I was told that the fobs were never returned. I returned to the office and requested for video record from the security camera, but they said there is no video available and the person I described who received my fobs wasn't even in office that day. Avalon just kept finding new excuses to avoid showing me any prove of the missing fobs and kept calling me to ask for that $200. I've lived there for so many years and similar cases also happened to my friends. Their management team needs serious training in how to take care of their clients' needs. Apartment itself was fine, a bit overpriced but great location for AU students.

Good for Students

It is great for students who go to AU because it is a short walk from the campus and it is safe. However, it is over priced, full of loud colleg students, much like AU not close to much. The price of rent does not cover electricity, water, cable, Internet or parking

Avalon at Foxhall

This is my favorite apartment. Very nice location nearby a lovely walking trail to Georgetown and the National Cathedral. American University is only one block away which is super convenient and safe area to live in. There's also a rooftop pool, personal washer/dryer in the unit, balcony. There is an attendant at the front-desk at all hours to offer assistance, such as package retrieval, which is a huge plus.

AU graudate

I'm an AU graduate, and I've been living in Avalon since my sophomore year. I like the location, it's very close to the campus, about a 10 minute walk. However, if you want to take metro to other places, you'll have to take the shuttle bus first then transfer to the metro. Other than that, Avalon is a pretty nice place to live.

For young people

I've been living in this apartment building for almost two years now. I work right across the street so it's pretty convenient for me to comminute in the mornings. The inside of the apartment needs a little bit more work. I wouldn't have chosen to stay here if it wasn't for my job.

Nothing special...

Avalon is really average on everything but the price. I moved here for work purposes, but I might move soon because it's not worth the price. If you prefer to live in a quiet area, Avalon might not be your best bet. The amenities are okay, but the gym could be better.

Average apartment

Avalon is alright for students who want to have a walking distance to American University. A lot of AU students live here, and they are pretty friendly. I've been living here since my freshman year and I think It's pretty convenient. There are some nearby restaurants and supermarkets. Metro is about 1 mile.

Good choice for students

The Avalon is located in a pretty nice area. There are a lot of trees kind of separates the building from noisy street. Compare to other apartments in the area, Avalon is a little bit over priced, but it's also very close to the campus, it's less than 10 minutes walk. I personally enjoy staying here.

Not worth the price

I've been living in Avalon for ...ever. Mostly because I couldn't leave the school area. For the amount of money that I pay each month, I would say Avalon definitely isn't worth the price tag. Our gym is pretty old, and often smelly during the summer. The pool on rooftop is tiny, and a lot of students bring friends over so it's always crowded. The management team is not very responsible for problem reported. You just really have to be patient with them.

Cathedral Heights Reviews

9 reviews
This is a very residential area. It's about 7 minutes to Cathedral Commons, which has a Giant, CVS, some restaurants, and some boutique stores, but it still feels pretty isolated from the rest of DC.
I went into this a bit on my apartment review. I love living in an actual neighborhood. There's always kids and dogs running around so it feel super safe. I like the front yards, trees, and gardens - definitely doesn't give off the "concrete jungle" vibe. There's not a lot of traffic noise and everything is pretty well maintained. There's some gorgeous Embassies near by which are stunning to look at. Great area for jogging (if you're into that) and right by American without feeling like you live in a dorm.
It seems like if you live or work at AU, this is a great neighborhood for you. Also if you work on the N2/N4/N6 route and want to be sort of tucked-back into the semi-suburbs but won't be bothered by college kids, it's also a great neighborhood for that. Mass Ave South of campus is basically all apartments for a few blocks so that really is the neighborhood. Not that it's not a great neighborhood if you're not involved with AU, but since I went there, most of the people I know around here are affiliated with the school.
Nice suburban feel in the city. Definitely a safer place than most and generally convenient to other places with enough bus routes. In addition, there's never a problem with food as a nice walk around to a eatery is never out of the question.
Again, perfect for kids and dogs.
Very safe and lots of new restaurants popping up! Also very dog friendly. Walking distance to Giant.
The neighborhood here is beautiful with lots of trees, places to walk, and access to the Georgetown waterfront. There are a lot of families that live here and elderly people so it's a little farther from some of the night life in D.C. but if you are willing to split a ride with friends or hop on the bus it is very doable.

A note: although the neighborhood is pet friendly, the building does not allow pets.

Overall, it's beautiful here and a nice escape from the craziness of law school life.
It is a great neighborhood if you are going to American University, a short walk or bus ride to campus. They are starting to add more restaurants and shops nearby and its great that the new Giant and CVS opened by the Cathedral. If you have a car, you can certainly find parking and get to everything quickly.
