Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom + Sofa Sleeper + Air Mattress, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Historic home, in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood, 2 blocks from the heart of the action!

Elegant 1 bedroom, 1½ bathroom, on the 2nd floor of a classic DC townhouse. Located in one of the most upscale sections of the city - the west side of DuPont Circle, in Kalorama - the safest neighborhood in DC. President Obama lives just around the corner!

The property is exceptionally large - 1000 square feet of indoor living space - featuring high ceilings, tall windows and original French doors. Enhancing those quarters are two private Juliet balconies: just off the kitchen for dining alfresco, and next to the bedroom for morning coffee and quiet conversation outdoors.

The spiral staircase leads to a master retreat that is tucked away from the rest of the home. The bedroom is nicely sized and comfortably appointed, the organic mattress topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival. Complementing the space is a full bathroom, sunroom alcove and balcony. If traveling with couples, the sofa sleeper and half bath on the living room expands the sleeping quarters.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and if you're into organics, included is a juicer and a Vitamix. Please feel free to use our spices for your cooking needs; groceries can be purchased just down the way at the corner market.

You are a short walk to hundreds of cafes and restaurants in DuPont and Georgetown, and within walking distance to the Capitol, White House, Smithsonian, Washington Monument, and the zoo.

The DuPont Metro Station is just a few blocks away, and cabs are abundant in the area.

If you are bringing a vehicle, there are two options that can be added to your quote: driveway parking can be made available for up to 2 vehicles, and any number of street parking permits can also be arranged.

What you can expect: it is my aim to provide guests a five-star experience. Touches that I appreciate when I travel: cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable bedding, wireless Internet and eclectic decor.

Please Note: I book on a first-come basis, and the furnishings are constantly evolving!

Here's what Kathy from Ottawa had to say about her stay:

Excellent choice! This was a perfect choice for my recent three night stay in DC. The apartment was just as described in the listing - very clean, bright, safe and relaxed. It had all the amenities I required to make it an enjoyable stay including a comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and a great WiFi connection. It was a fantastic location – within walking distance of major attractions but close to the Dupont Circle metro station if you prefer public transit. There is a good selection of restaurants, cafes and groceries in the area. Parking (with a permit) was available immediately across the street from the apartment and I never had to move my vehicle during my visit. I was most impressed with the responsiveness of the host who was accommodating and genuinely interested in ensuring a positive experience. She provided very clear, timely and detailed information and was always professional. I would definitely consider staying here again the next time I am in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I got kudos from my two girlfriends for finding this place. It was perfect. The area was beautiful (and safe), it was hard to believe it was only steps away from resturants, shops, and the metro. The condo was absolutely charming. It was spotless. The kitchen has been updated and had everything we needed. The bed AND air mattress were incredibly comfortable. (We all wrote the name of the air mattress down so we could go home and buy one for OUR guests). Gloria was delightful to work with. (We had one mini-glitch and even though she was out of town, it was addressed immediately). Thanks, Gloria! We would definitely come back to this lovely condo.

Charming apartment in quiet residential area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week in the apartment while we visited DC. It had everything we needed and was comfortable, light and airy. The bed was very comfortable and the linens of high quality. That's important to us. Both the apartment and the neighborhood were peacefully quiet. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and shopped at the corner grocery. The Metro was an easy 1/2 mile walk. Short Uber rides took us to/from Georgetown, Downtown, National Cathedral.

Gloria was great to work with. We had only two occasions to ask for help and she responded immediately. We'd stay here again.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Dupont circle is a great neighborhood.

Walking distance to Phillips Collection, Metro, Trader Joe's, Whole foods , Starbucks etc. Apt was very clean. Circular staircase is steep & narrow; not for children,seniors, or large suitcases. Otherwise, delightful upstairs bedroom & bath.

Special place

  • 5 of 5

Love the location; convenient to metro and sights; did a lot of walking because of closeness to our destinations each day. Very clean and nicely decorated if you like the shabby chic/sort of rustic/antique style; a real charming unit. The tight spiral staircase is a cool feature for the young or older very fit people. I prefer traditional stairs but I knew the staircase was there when I rented so I'm not complaining. People just need to know it is a tight space which is why I didn't try to take my suitcase upstairs & I only went up at bedtime. The hostess was very kind and responded to all my inquiries. Our stay here made our first DC trip very special. We felt very safe, like part of the neighborhood. The only thing that needs to be provided is a sink stopper for the kitchen. I could not find one anywhere and really needed it when I hand washed items that I didn't want to put in the dishwasher. Renters also need to know that the bed is very firm so if you're used to a soft bed, you will be in for a surprise. Overall, this was a very good experience and I highly recommend this apartment. Thank you!

Nice safe location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Dupont Circle. The apartment was clean, tidy & comfortable. We walked to the Metro station or got a quick Uber every day. The spiral staircase would be difficult for people with reduced mobility. Also make sure you buy the driveway parking space or you have no where to park. I wish that had been stressed to us while booking the place.
