Historic, 2-story Row House offers spacious 1200 square feet of living space, 2 bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a fold-down sofa in the living room.

This is a historic building and normally to get in to historic building you have to climb flight of stairs to get in. Once you get in to the building we have the living room on that level and there are stairs inside the unit to go down to the first level where are two bedrooms and bathrooms. The unit also features outdoor seating in a small courtyard.

Gracious living-dining area for charming family meals and entertaining. Very nice modern decor with hardwood floors and nicely equipped kitchen. Free Wireless/Wired DSL for your convenience.

Our house is in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, right of 16th Street NW, few blocks from the White House and the National Mall. In this vibrant, cosmopolitan neighborhood, you will find some of the city's finest museums and historic homes as well as an array of ethnic restaurants, unique bookstores, and Washington's largest concentration of private art galleries. This perfect location provides many walking destinations including the White House, The National Mall, The Textile Museum etc.

There are two Metro Stations nearby our condo - Dupont Circle which is pretty close as well as U Street. Both within walking distance about 10 minutes. Public transportation is very easy and safe, so you will be able to get everywhere by walking or Metro.

About The Owner

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean (our mom cleans it, so you know it’s spotless), conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

Why The Owner chose Northwest Washington

Situated in the heart of the city is the tony neighborhood of DuPont Circle. Located in a section of Washington called 'Old City', DuPont Circle is a traffic circle, neighborhood, and historic district. A number of historic homes can be found throughout the area, including the post-presidential residence of Woodrow Wilson. DuPont Circle is a known destination for fine dining and entertainment.

This cosmopolitan neighborhood includes an eclectic collection of shops and trendy restaurants that draw visitors young and old. Originally populated by Washington's old money and nouveau riche, DuPont Circle is now home to artists, intellectuals, and young professionals. Turn-of-the-century mansions and brownstones—once home to some the city's most prominent families—now house some of the nation's finest art museums, hippest restaurants, quirky shops, and foreign embassies. It is also home to the Phillips Collection, one of the city's foremost art museums featuring paintings by Renoir, Degas, Cezanne, Picasso, and others.

What makes this condo unique

The proximity to the National Mall, White House and all of downtown is just unmatched in this apartment. On the weekend, DuPont Circle has one of the largest organic farmers' markets in the city. This neighborhood is accessible by foot or cab. WalkScore rates our unit and the surrounding neighborhood a walkability rating of 98 out of 100 - so as perfect as one can get. There are two Metro Stations nearby our condo - Dupont Circle which is pretty close as well as U Street. Both within walking distance about 10 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely apartment - very appealing atmosphere. Great location. Incredibly comfortable beds. Only downfalls: internet was extremely unreliable (only worked about 10% of the time), washer and dryer were advertised but were not there for our entire week's stay (a real disappointment - owner said they stopped working last week and he was in process of having them replaced) and no outdoor grill (as was advertised).

Great location in a quiet neighbourhood close to 14th Street

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and well appointed. The bedrooms in the lower level are a little dark but good for sleeping! The kitchen - although we didn’t really use it - was very well equipped. The water pressure in the showers was great. Would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful location and very clean

We stayed with our son for five nights to "see the sights" in Washington. A great location near Dupont Circle, with handy access to the Metro. The house was very clean and neat. We would definitely recommend.
