Property description

A few additional details-- unique to some HomeAway listings, you will find zero clutter as my home is rented full time, and as such is optimized for travelers! I am a full time host, and I take my responsibility to provide wonderful accommodations to you - VERY seriously!

This is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment in a vibrant, safe, family friendly neighborhood. The house includes one 32' flat screen TV, and has Xfinity TV and 50/25 (very fast!) wireless internet. One Queen sized bed, and loveseat with a twin-sized pull-out bed. Additional beds are provided via Twin sized air mattresses (provided!) The space is most comfortable for groups up to 3, but if you are willing too, the space can accommodate 4 people.

There is 1 - completely empty closets - in the bedroom for all your things; the fridge is sparkling and empty (except for some condiments) and kitchen cabinets are entirely cleared - with the exception of provided dishes and silverware (all Crate and Barrel.)

I also have a Keurig, and all the free coffee you could want/need! Free street parking is available - please let me know in advance if you plan to bring a car. Washer and dryer included in utility closet.

I am located .4 miles from the Shaw-Howard U Metro Station, and a one seat ride to everything that the city has to offer! I will do everything in my power to make your stay wonderful, and am happy to accommodate any special requests!

There are some terrific food options near my home, and I will be happy to help you discover these options!

Guest Access

The house is entirely yours throughout the rental period (unshared). You will have access to the entire home, including kitchen, all bathrooms, toiletries, and anything else needed to have a wonderful stay!

I provide a unique code to the deadbolt prior to your arrival, so late arrivals are no problem. You simply come to the front door, enter the code, and gain access!

Interaction with Guests

I have an electronic deadbolt - you will be sent a unique to you code prior to your arrival. I may be there when you arrive (depending on time and schedule) Otherwise, the house is yours! I am available by cell phone or e-mail, and promptly answer any and all questions.

The Neighborhood

Shaw is a beautiful neighborhood, with row homes built in the 1920's. Amazing transit access to the rest of the city, and a lot of restaurant options near the metro and the apartment. Many of my neighbors have been in their homes for 30+ years, and the neighborhood has a small town feel to it, with neighbors saying hello to each other and walking over to chat with each other on their porch.

Getting around

Car: Street parking is available. Please let me know if you plan to bring a car so we can get you a parking pass!

Metro: I am located .4 miles from the Shaw-Howard U metro station (green/yellow lines) es). This is a 6-8 minute walk from the apartment. Noma Metro Station (red line) is also within easy walking distance, .7 miles away.

Bike: There is a Capital Bikeshare dock located at Florida Ave & R St NW, approximately 1/2 block (.05 miles) from the apartment.

Taxi: Taking a taxi can be an economical way to access the apartment, especially if you're traveling in a group. Taxis from downtown will cost about $10-$15, depending on where you're traveling from.

Car: Not Necessary

LeDroit Park is a wonderful neighborhood. Located in the middle of Washington, D.C., and close to transit and downtown, but with a small-town feel, where neighbors say hello to each other. Neighbors love gathering at the farmers market held every Saturday 1 block from the apartment!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I am a normal, 27 year old male who enjoys traveling and spending time at my parents house on the river. I love Washington, D.C. and hope you enjoy your time in our nations capital! I am a very conscientious host, and really do go out of my way to make sure that my house can be a home to you while you are travelling!

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Washington, Washington, DC, USA:
This apartment was renovated from top to bottom in Fall '14. I spared no expense in this renovation, and couldn't be happier with the end result. The renovation included a top of the line gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances and finishes, as well as beautiful granite and plenty of cabinet space! The bathroom was renovated to include a large glass shower with rain shower head. It is amazing! This is an amazing space that will please all travelers! A vastly superior option to staying in a hotel when you visit the city!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I run this property by myself, and use the same cleaner EVERY time to turn over the property. We have become incredibly good at this, and I go above and beyond to make each stay incredible for ALL of my guests. From providing free unlimited coffee, to regularly replacing towels, linens, and ensuring that all kitchenware and accessories are provided, I make your stay incredibly easy. Just bring your luggage and groceries (if you want to cook!), I provide the rest!
