Overview

About the property

Junior 1 Bedroom Apt / Sleeps 3

Newly renovated, junior 1 bedroom English basement apartment, with 4 full-size windows, offers plenty of natural light. Sleeps 3 adults with a queen bed and twin sofa bed. You'll have a comfortable night's sleep with 500 thread count sheets and tempurpedic pillows. The queen mattress is from Savvy Rest and is made of organic natural latex foam. The full bathroom has a bathtub and shower. There is a washer and dryer in the unit. The full-size kitchen appliances include a refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and iron. The kitchen has granite countertops and is fully furnished with plates, glasses, cookware, utensils, etc. The apartment has all the conveniences of home. For travelers with small children, a highchair and Pack n' Play are available upon request.

The apartment is located just north of downtown, near 2 yellow/green line metro stops—just 3 blocks from Howard University/Shaw metro stop and 3 blocks from the Mt Vernon/Convention Center metro stop. Reagan National Airport is also located on the yellow line, so the commute from the airport is very easy. Washington DC is a very walkable city with good public transportation. You won't need a car while you are here. If you are traveling with a car, there is plenty of street parking available. Street parking is locally zoned, but we will arrange for you to have a parking pass for a $25 fee.

We are walking distance to vibrant nightlife, like the U street corridor, Logan Circle and Chinatown/Gallery Place. Only 3 metro stops to the National Mall and all of the historic monuments. Lots of restaurants within walking distances. 

For extended stays, we will have the apartment cleaned weekly for an additional $50. Nightly rate does not include the Washington DC lodging tax of 14.5%.

We live upstairs and are happy to answer any questions or make recommendations. The apartment has a separate alley entrance, and you will have complete privacy.

About Greg Sitzmann

We moved to DC together in 2005, the year we were married. It was going to be a short-term stay, and here we are 12 years later. We absolutely love our city.

Greg Sitzmann purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Greg Sitzmann chose U Street Corridor (Shaw)

The nice thing about the English basement apartment is that it's only a couple steps below ground. So it really feels more like a first-floor space. The ceilings are high. And the four tall windows let in plenty of natural light.

What makes this apartment unique

Our neighborhood, Shaw, is also called Old City. It has a great neighborhood vibe. Subway stops are convenient. But if you like to walk, it's a beautiful city to see on foot.

Great location, quiet street.

  • 5 of 5

My 2 tweenagers and I came in to see the sights for a couple days, and it was the perfect size and location for us. Location is on a very quiet street that is close to the grocery store, a few restaurants and cafés, and public transportation. Subway stops a few blocks north and south, but 70 bus, which we used to get straight down to the national mall, is only a block away. Very conveniently located. Basement apartment was well lit and comfortably appointed. Very nominal noise from the unit above was barely audible and certainly not disruptive. I would absolutely stay here again the next time I come to town.

Great location, great and efficient apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our son recently moved to the Shaw area of D.C. We found the apartment to be clean and well located for the two of us. It was a great respite as we helped our son's family with their move. Greg was great with his pre-arrival contact and information. Our only thought would be to include some additional basics in the kitchen to help out travelers. That was only a minor detail! We will hopefully be able to use this as a home base when visiting D.C. Thank you for a nice stay.

Cozy & convenient

  • 5 of 5

Location is very close to the 8th and R street metro stop and the Giant grocery store is essentially one block away. Quite and just as pictured. Our host provided basic condiments (sugar and salt) and coffee and coffee filters! So thoughtful! Will definitely stay here again!!

Modern and convenient in a historic Shaw neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the historic Shaw neighborhood in Washington D.C. The apartment was a couple minutes walk from 2 metro stations, and we enjoyed the restaurants and gelato nearby. The apartment is nicely decorated and furnished (modern inside, historic outside), and the full kitchen and laundry were great for us. This was our first time using VRBO, and we loved it!

Clean, cute, convenient

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect place for our short stay. The renovations are very nice and the place has all the amenities you need. We appreciated the book compiled by the host listing the many restaurant, bar and activity options within walking distance (notably Compass Coffee :-) We had a car so the parking pass was worthwhile. We had no problem finding a spot near the apartment. The Metro is just a short walk, however, if you don’t have a car. Didn’t feel uncomfortable in the neighborhood but like anywhere...I’d just be extra vigilant.

Greg (owner) provided good communication and information. Glad there were several options for WiFi since one of them didn’t work for us.

I’d stay here again - a great price and a good location.
