Elegant 1 bedroom home, with Juliette balcony and driveway parking option. Situated on the 2nd floor, with an emphasis on organic amenities and upscale linens and towels.
Located in one of the most preferred neighborhoods in DC, this spacious DuPont Circle townhouse rests on a quiet tree-lined street and features fine dining in walking distance. The turn-of-the century home is conveniently near Embassy Row, museums and shopping. Even better, nearby salons and bistros abound.
This is one of several units managed by an experienced host who has been awarded Premier Status on VRBO.
The home is renovated and has 1000 square feet of indoor living space, featuring high ceilings, tall windows and original French doors. Enhancing those quarters are two Juliet balconies: just off the kitchen for dining alfresco, and next to the bedroom for morning coffee and quiet conversations outdoors. For extra convenience, high-speed internet is available for guest use.
Comfortable contemporary and antique furnishings are accented by eclectic décor. You’ll find the kitchen well-stocked, including a juicer and Vitamix. The room opens to a private balcony if you prefer taking your meals under the sun.
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 another Juliette balcony. Extra privacy can be had if traveling with couples, as the sofa sleeper and half bath on the main level expands the sleeping quarters.
Steps from your front door you will find a corner market and a dry cleaner. Just a few blocks beyond enjoy gourmet restaurants, bistros, theatre, and shopping. After dining, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along Embassy Row with its beautiful mansions.
Minutes away, the subway will transport guests to the most popular sites: the Smithsonian, the Capitol, world renowned monuments and Arlington Cemetery, to name a few. The White House is within walking distance with lovely sites along the way. If traveling with children, so is the zoo.
Cabs, Ubers and bike rental stations are abundant in the area. If you favor your own 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 five-star amenities; the same touches that I appreciate when I travel: lodging located in a gorgeous and safe neighborhood, cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable mattresses, high-speed Internet and eclectic decor.
Please Note: I book on a first-come basis, and the furnishings are constantly evolving.

Very Nice. Excellent location.
Everything as stated. Parking extra but valuable option. Consider stay with no car and Uber/Lyft.
Light & Bright // Safe & Secure // Clean & Well Appointed
I loved meeting Gloria. She was an amazing help. While we were unable to work out an early check-in, I loved that she tried. I loved that she cared. The unit was very much like the photos. I was snowed in on one entire day and the bright windows made my unplanned shut-in day so perfect! So many places I looked at were basement units and I was so happy with the bright light.
The spiral staircase leading to the bedroom was difficult but not unmanageable.
I did not like the smell walking into the building but it was not in the unit at all. Once in the unit the home was welcoming and clean.
I had arrived a little early so I saw it dirty. I dropped my bags and when I came back the cleaning service used by Gloria had done an amazing job. I was very impressed.
My values noted in the title were all met in this special place. I also want to comment on the amazing location. Not only was it safe but it was so close to the places I wanted to go.
Thank you, Gloria! M.
Beautiful elegant private home
This property is the prettiest in the day. The area is convenient everything is local so you don't need a car to travel. There is never not anything to do in this area, no one was rude everyone was private and respectful. Loved this place we'll be back soon!
Great location. Quiet, beautiful neighborhood. We would stay here again.
The property is conveniently located to walking or Metro to any or all popular destinations.
The apartment itself is cozy and good for two people. The spiral staircase is a bit precarious especially with large luggage. Watching the street from the balcony was a pleasant way to pass the time.
Gloria was easy and gracious to work with. We would definitely be interested in a return stay.
Wonderful apartment, quiet,peaceful..owner lives in building..very responsive if anything needed.
Perfect place to stay, lovely apartment..comfortable furnishings,plenty of linens & blankets...fully equipped kitchen with microwave & dishwasher included...
Two small decks...one right off the kitchen with chairs & a table for meals.Absolutely adorable..we enjoyed it & would highly recommend a stay there...
One of the best things about the vacation rental business is that I come in contact with some of the most fabulous people in the world!
Quaint, Charming Vintage Place in a very Quiet and Safe Neighborhood
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful place. We would definitely stay again. We were so happy we chose to stay there instead of across the river. Gloria was an awesome host. She was very helpful and responded to any questions promptly. The place is as described. If driving into the city, pay for the driveway parking. It is worth not having to find street parking or another place to park. The place is an short stroll to Dupont Circle. We read the previous reviews and found them to be helpful. In regards to the stairwell, smaller suitcases would be better than one large one. Don't let it intimidate you. We had no problem going up and down it even after walking the city all day. There are numerous excellent restaurants and bars within walking distance. We enjoyed the Russia House, the Bier Baron Tavern and Larry's Ice Cream & Cupcakes for dessert.
One of the best parts of vacation renting is that I come in contact with such delightful people. Wishing you all things wonderful!
