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.

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 Juliet balconies: just off the kitchen for dining alfresco, and next to the bedroom for morning coffee and 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 main level 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 in walking distance of 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 five-star amenities. The same touches that I appreciate when I travel: lodging located in a gorgeous 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!

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.

About Gloria

I am a writer who works out of her home, and my husband is a former mayor of Kansas City and is currently a publisher in Washington, DC.

We prefer quiet homes in residential neighborhoods when we travel, and offer ours to like-minded people whenever we're away.

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.

Quaint, Charming Vintage Place in a very Quiet and Safe Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location. Quiet, beautiful neighborhood. We would stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

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.
