Penn Quarter house description

We work directly with every guest, and do not trust any aspect of your stay to others. For your security, we only book your stay through the website and will never ask for a wire transfer. No matter how you found us, to proceed please click the 'inquiry' or 'book now' button, or call the number listed, to ensure you are working directly with us, the property's owners. Thanks again, Deborah & David

Comfortable, spacious pied-à-terre just:

-- 6 blocks from the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum,
-- 8 blocks to the Smithsonian Castle,
-- 1 block from Washington’s Southwest Waterfront, and
-- a15-minute walk to the Tidal Basin’s cherry blossom trees!

Or hop on the Metro at the L’Enfant Plaza subway hub – 4 blocks away – to get to Arlington Memorial Cemetery, the National Zoo, the White House or U.S. Capitol in minutes.

A new grocery store, drugstore, and other shops are four blocks away – and so is a Capital Bikeshare docking station, where you can rent a bike then drop it off wherever you’re going – or return one that you picked up from elsewhere.

Our daylight basement means plenty of light but the apartment stays cool, even in DC’s humid summers. The new kitchen is fully equipped. . . the new travertine+marble bathroom has a step-in shower. . . a spacious bedroom with a king-sized bed and and flat screen TVs in the LR and BR make this a haven after a hectic day.

A reserved parking space – a rarity in the city – opens other options for easily getting around town.

At dusk, listen for the ship’s horn as the Odyssey dinner cruise pulls out of the nearby marina. . . stay in and grill on the enclosed back patio (shared with fellow VRBO guests upstairs). . . stroll to DC’s floating fish market for the freshest seafood in town. . . book theater tickets for a memorable evening at the stunning Arena Stage showplace two blocks away. . . or head to nearby restaurants:

* Cantina Marina is a fun neighborhood watering hole and restaurant on the water where the Sequoia (once the presidential yacht) is docked

* Phillips Seafoood and other reliable favorites also line the waterfront

* The Mandarin Oriental Hotel (whose five-star elegance draws foreign dignitaries and VIPs) has a choice of restaurants

* A mile north, Gallery Place/Chinatown is one of Washington’s nightlife and dining destinations -- and where the Caps and Wizards play

A Supreme Court Chief Justice was the first owner of our house, and the neighborhood remains home to many long-time residents. While you’re here, why not join them in the conclusion that – with everything else to do in DC – there is no reason to waste time commuting!
