About the property

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

Elegant 1 bedroom, 1½ bathrooms, on the 2nd floor of a classic 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 home is exceptionally large - 800 square feet of indoor living space - featuring high ceilings, tall windows and original French doors. Enhancing those quarters are two private 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 Juliet balcony. On the main level, a sofa sleeper and half bath expands the sleeping quarters - the perfect arrangement if you're traveling with two couples or with children.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and if you're into organics, included is a juicer and 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, monuments, museums, and the zoo. The DuPont Metro Station is just a few blocks away, and taxi’s and Ubers are abundant in the area.

If you are bringing a vehicle, you have two options that can be added to your quote: driveway parking is available for up to 2 vehicles, and 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.

About Gloria

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

It is my aim to provide guests a five-star experience. Touches that I appreciate when I travel: a terrific neighborhood, cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable bedding, wireless Internet and eclectic decor.

My hobbies include: Surrounding myself with beauty, preparing nutritious but delicious meals, collecting old tablecloths, staying vibrantly healthy, keeping spiritually alive, learning about natural medicine, listening to the Grateful Dead and other blues music, traveling, reading, writing, being next to the mountains and the ocean, chatting with family and annoying them with practical jokes, dreaming big dreams and being a great mom.

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.

Loved, loved, LOVED my stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here a few days with my college-aged son visiting family who was also visiting but staying elsewhere...our apartment was cozy but spacious, bed was oh, so comfy, bathrooms and kitchen super clean, and the neighborhood quiet and safe and walking distance to coffee shops etc. We did not have our own car...never waited for more than 3 minutes for Uber pick up to the Monuments/museums.

2 days on the ground in DC was not enough...will definitely be back AND will rebook with Gloria!

Great property in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a full week in December and enjoyed our stay greatly. The property was just as described and pictured on vrbo. The main bedroom is up a narrowish spiral staircase, which my wife and I had no trouble negotiating despite being in our 70s. The building is quiet and the neighborhood is beautiful. It's a short walk / cab/ Uber to almost anywhere, including to Rock Creek park, where there's a great walking / jogging path that takes you to Georgetown and beyond. Highly recommended.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Washington DC was greatly enhanced by having such a wonderful place to stay! The location is fantastic - in a row house in Kalorama, on a quiet side street, surrounded by beautiful embassies and homes, yet only a 5-10 minute walk to the Metro in Dupont Circle. With only half a block to the corner market, and a couple of minutes walking to a large selection of great restaurants, we were set. The property itself is accurately described in the information. The kitchen and bathrooms have been very nicely remodeled with updated fixtures and appliances. The bed is SO comfortable, and the linens top quality. As described, the upper floor is reached by a narrow spiral staircase, which could possibly be a challenge for some. We had no difficulty getting my large 40lb. bag upstairs, though. Do be aware that it is in an older building. If you enjoy experiencing a town/city like the locals, then for Washington DC staying in a row house is for you, and this one couldn't be better. In addition, the owner is quick to respond to any concerns and is a delight to work with. We loved our stay - the place met all our needs.
