About the property

3 Bedroom, 1-1/2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Brand new central Air Conditioning unit has already been installed!

This home is a beautiful historic house in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC. The house is located on the quiet and beautiful Swann Street, a 5 minute walk from Dupont Circle and close to many national monuments and great restaurants. Historic Georgetown is a scenic 15 minute walk away. This cozy house is ideal for both short visits to DC for parents visiting college students, weddings, or a trip to our Nation's Capital, as well as longer stays for family get-togethers like Thanksgiving.

The first floor of the house includes a living room (brand new couches), foyer leading to a dining room for 8, a half bathroom, and a fully stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops that will make your stay feel like home. The second floor of the home consists of a generously sized master bedroom (brand new king size bed), two additional bedrooms, and a full bath. Further, the basement has a large additional family room and a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer. The basement also includes an old bar from when the house was a former speakeasy where, according to the original owner, Louis Armstrong used to play! The house includes designated parking for two cars behind the house, a very valuable commodity in DC.

Swann Street is close to wonderful restaurants, the famous U Street Corridor, lovely art galleries, Meridian Park, a short walk to the the White House, the Smithsonian Museum and all the beautiful monuments of the National Mall.

This home benefits from easy access to both the red line at Dupont Circle Metro Station and the yellow/green line at U Street metro station. Both are a 5-minute walk away. Bus transportation is also available close by and it is always easy to get a cab. Ronald Reagan Airport is 15-20 minutes away.

Lauriol Plaza (corner of Swann and 18th) - Mexican, great atmosphere & margaritas

Rosemary Thyme Bistro (corner of 18th and S Street) - Mediterranean, great service

Busboys and Poets (14th and V St.) – great breakfast

We moved to Dupont Circle because it is a charming, safe neighborhood. We love walking to many National Monuments, the White House and to so many ethnic restaurants. We love the feeling of this cosmopolitan, young and vibrant city. A wonderful city to explore!

Excellent stay in Washington

  • 5 of 5

This is an attractive, thoughtfully furnished and well-ordered house equipped with everything needed for a relaxing base in DC. Swann Street is quiet and leafy, ideally located for restaurants and a range of places of interest, including the Phillips Collection. A short walk takes you to Dupont Circle with its access to the Metro, shops and more restaurants. Thoroughly recommended and we look forward to booking the house again.

  • 5 of 5

We brought our children to Washington DC for five days and had an amazing time at this house and in the city. The house was very spacious the rooms all worked out really well the beds were amazingly comfortable which we are always worried about because that can make or break your experience if you can't sleep LOL. We were concerned about only having one shower for all of us but it worked out great and we didn't have any problem. We were able to walk to everything that we wanted to and everything that we didn't feel like walking to was a very short Uber ride. We will definitely be visiting this property again if we come back to the East Coast!

wonderful neighborhood, beautiful two-story rowhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit and really appreciated everything about the place. The owner has great taste... beautiful carpets, paintings and furniture. The upstairs was hot when we arrived. We called someone locally, they returned the call immediately, and the air conditioner was fixed the same day. Would definitely stay here again if we travel to DC.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review! I am so happy you and your family had a great time in D.C. Sorry about the A/C but the previous guest had left the A/C at 84 degrees so it takes awhile to cool the house. Glad you enjoyed our historic property. We have left instructions for our next guests to leave the thermostat at 73. Hope to see you again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. The house had plenty of space for my wife and I and our two kids. Our teenage son quickly ditched the third bedroom at the back of the house and set up camp in the basement with the television. The house itself was nice but the flooring on the ground floor (mentioned several times in reviews) was annoying if anyone tried to go to sleep early. The house has not been modernized so enjoy the historic charm.

The house location was excellent - there were restaurants pretty close in any direction. The Metro station is about 10 minutes away. We never moved our car the entire time we were there.

Overall, we'd love to stay here again if we decide to come back to DC.

Very nice house. The beds are comfortable. Bathroom was ok. Parking for 2nd car is very tight. For a longer visit, much better than a hotel!
