Overview

Columbia Heights Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4

This charming apartment is the entire 3rd floor of an historic row house in the dynamic neighborhood of Columbia Heights.

Price INCLUDES tax and cleaning.

The apartment is separate and private with a door at the bottom of the stairs, but the entry is through the main house where I live. You may come and go as you please. I'm a writer & work at home.

Location- only Half-block from Columbia Heights Metro station, (Yellow/Green line) it is only 5 stops (7-10 minutes) to tourist areas - Smithsonian museums, US Capitol, Convention Center, Zoo.

What's Nearby? - Within 2 blocks you will find dozens of restaurants and cafes, a wine-bar, neighborhood pub, 2 coffee shops, a wine store, Starbucks, a Grocery Store, CVS drugstore.

Shopping center with Target & Marshals. (Travel light and buy it all here!)

Other neighborhoods with similar vibrant nightlife & restaurants - Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, Mount Pleasant & U st - are an easy 15-20 minute walk, or one subway stop away.

Just three more stops along (no need to change trains) is the bustling Gallery Place/Chinatown neighborhood, with the MCI arena, Convention Center, American Art Museum, Spy museum, dozens of shops and restaurants, a 14 screen movie theater, even a bowling alley!

Amenities- The apartment has one bedroom with queen sized bed, a full bathroom and a separate living room with a comfy queen-sized sofa bed. There is a TV with cable & DVD in each room.

FREE High speed Wireless Internet.

In the living room there is a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, 2 electric burners, toaster, coffee maker etc. - everything you need to prepare light meals.

You have use of washer/dryer on 2nd floor.

Children - Because of the stairs I don't take children between crawling and about age 5.

Older children are welcome. There is one Aerobed available, making it possible for 3 children to share the living room. This is very crowded however and not recommended for longer than 4 nights.

I provide a permit for free street parking.

Off street parking is available - $15.00 per night.

PLEASE NOTE - I prefer to offer you personal secure service for online booking - NOT using the 'Book it Now' feature on this website. Please email me directly. I accept credit cards through PayPal.

Please tell me a bit about yourself in your reply.

About Victoria

I'm a novelist. I was born in Washington DC and have lived here most of my life. I've traveled and worked all over the world and enjoy sharing my city with visitors.

Victoria purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Victoria chose Columbia Heights

Columbia Heights is an historic and diverse neighborhood right in the middle of the city, close to everything. Being 1/2 block to a Metro station makes everything easier!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first real vacation to D.C. and we could not have picked a better place to stay. Close to Metro station - just a 3-4 minute walk - and close to good places to eat and shop. Just two of us so we had plenty of room - fully furnished with everything you need and very comfortable for resting up for the next adventure. Landlady was very nice and usually home to ask questions and give advice. Neighborhood was quite nice and we never had any safety / security concerns. We would very highly recommend you give this place serious consideration if going to D.C. For us, it was just about perfect.

Lovely Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little apartment was the perfect home base for our family during our visit to Washington D.C. Only 6 Metro stops from the Mall, we were really close to everything we wanted to see. Our host also gave us great restaurant and sight-seeing tips and even helped us with GroupOn. Our kids LOVED playing with the resident dog and cats as well (not allowed near our room). That was a life-saver for us. The apartment is clean and has all the amenities of home.

Wonderful location with a great host!

  • 5 of 5

Victoria's rental is excellent and the location (for the price) is unbeatable. The apartment is clean, spacious, so bright and inviting. Everything you need is right out side the door, at the end of a short block - drug store, Target, gym, great restaurants, buses and cabs, and the Washington Metro. I always stay with Victoria when I am in DC (and have for years.) I highly recommend this rental.

A warm and family friendly experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay with Victoria! What a wonderful and friendly host, who made us feel right at home and kindly spent time with my children each day sharing her pets :) Excellent location in lively Columbia Heights. The apartment was perfect for 2-4 people, and had all the needed amenities and many additional thoughtful ones as well. I highly recommend!

Excellent location and facilities, and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Victoria's. The apartment was perfect for myself, husband and 11 year old son. Excellent location in Columbia Heights, with lots of shopping, metro and restaurants just around the corner. Easy access to all the attractions of the city. Victoria made us feel very welcome, helped out with sightseeing advice, and my son enjoyed being able to play with her dog and cats. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Would highly recommend.

Convenient & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Victoria's rental worked very well for our family. Our 3 children (8,8 & 5) loved having their "own" room. The space is clean and comfortable and was bigger than we had expected. Very convenient location to the Columbia Heights metro station and plenty of restaurants. Located in a vibrant neighborhood.

A Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Park your car, and forget it. We took the metro (about 1/2 a block away) while there to the main sites in DC. After a short trip by metro everything "Capitol" was in walking distance.

Victoria was a gracious host, and the apartment was clean and comfortable. She went above and beyond by sending back my husband's computer charger that he had forgotten. Thanks again for that. We would stay at Victoria's again should we visit DC in the future.
