About the Property

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4

This charming apartment is the entire 3rd floor of an historic row house in the dynamic neighborhood of Columbia Heights.

Price INCLUDES tax and cleaning (for stays of 4+ nights.)

From March-July, there is minimum stay of 4 nights unless there is a natural gap on the calendar.

The apartment is separate and private with a door at the bottom of the stairs, but the entry is through the main house where I live. You may come and go as you please. I'm a writer & work at home.

Location- only Half-block from Columbia Heights Metro station, (Yellow/Green line) it is only 5 stops (7-10 minutes) to tourist areas - Smithsonian museums, US Capitol, Convention Center, Zoo.

What's Nearby? - Within 2 blocks you will find dozens of restaurants and cafes, neighborhood pubs, coffee shops, grocery Store, CVS drugstore.

Shopping center with Target & Marshals. (Travel light and buy it all here!)

Other neighborhoods with similar vibrant nightlife & restaurants - Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, Mount Pleasant & U st - are an easy 15-20 minute walk, or one subway stop away.

Just three more stops along (no need to change trains) is the bustling Gallery Place/Chinatown neighborhood, with the MCI arena, Convention Center, American Art Museum, Spy museum, dozens of shops and restaurants, a 14 screen movie theater, even a bowling alley!

Amenities- The apartment has one bedroom with queen sized bed, a full bathroom and a separate living room with a comfy queen-sized sofa bed. There is a TV with cable & DVD in each room.

High speed Wireless INTERNET.

In the living room there is a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, 2 electric burners, toaster, coffee maker, crock pot, etc. - everything you need to prepare light meals.

You have use of washer/dryer on 2nd floor.

Because of the open stairs the apt. is not safe for crawling babies and toddlers.

There is one Aerobed available, making it possible for 3 children to share the living room. This is very crowded however and not recommended for longer than 4 nights.

I provide a permit for free street parking.
Off street parking is available - $10.00 per night.

I accept credit cards through PayPal.
