About the Property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Living Room, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)

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 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 now 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 queen mattress topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival. Complementing the space is a full bathroom, sunroom alcove and balcony. On the main level, a sofa sleeper and half bath expands the sleeping quarters; making it an ideal setup if you're traveling with two couples.

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 cabs 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.
