The best location for sightseeing!
In the trendiest, artsy section of Washington DC, Dupont Circle - example of Pierre L'Enfant's vision for the city, great avenues radiating off small parks like spokes on a wheel, we offer the best value in furnished apartments, truly a home away from home: just bring your clothes.
We offer clean simple and comfortable furnished apartment with availability throughout the year.
This garden level/basement one bedroom apartment with one bathroom on the garden floor of historic Art Deco building is steps from world class restaurants, avant-garde theaters, trendy cafes and the best shopping this city has to offer. The apartment is decorated with passion and attention to detail: simple furniture, color coordinated sheets, rugs, cotton linens, kitchen and bath ware. Please note that this is our least expensive unit because it is in the basement. It has full size windows and it has been remodeled. It is clean, simple and comfortable. The bed in the bedroom is full size and there is a twin size sleeper sofa which folds out.
The building features outdoor seating patio, washer and dryer (shared) and close proximity to Metro only block and a half away.
Garage parking is available near our unit for $20 to $30 a day.
Street parking is by permit only between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. We can get visitor's parking pass for you from a local police station for $40 for the stay, and you can park, day and night, on the street. The parking pass is for zone 1, so any street marked zone 1 on the signs is fine (quite a large area). Please note that during the season the streets get cleaned -please read signs clearly and visibly posted on each street when you must move your car for street cleaning.
originally from Prague, Czech Republic, Washington DC has become my second home twelve years ago when I came to study at Georgetown University.
I live in this wonderful city with my two boys Alexander and Christopher, only few blocks from the rental property. We spend every weekend at a museum (Air and Space is the favorite), hiking through Rock Creek Park or on a fifty year old carousel in front of the Smithsonian Gardens and we hope that all our guests enjoy this vibrant city as much as we do.

As a single mom I need to provide for my two boys. I love to travel and so do my kids. Most of the time I travel out of DC and the situation helped me see that just as I love to leave the city and to explore other places, there are people who come to visit DC to spend time with their families. My two boys, my family, are the best critics of any place, as no furnishings are safe from their play and no vase is sacred to them. Our places are luxurious but ready to be used. I understand what most travelers need to feel comfortable since I have traveled extensively around the world to Africa, South and Central America, Asia and Europe . Please come and share your vacation time in our home. I promise that we will do our best to make you feel comfortable.
This is the reason I bought my rental property.
From our apartment in the heart of Dupont Circle the access to all the tourist attractions, world famous restaurants, great bars and the biggest selection of privately owned galleries is just steps away. The metro stop is only a block and a half away, next to Starbucks. The 14 Street buses run directly downtown from our bus station at the end of the block; every two minutes during rush hour and every six minutes other times.
The White house, The Mall and The Smithsonian Museums are less than a mile away; about fifteen minute walk or few metro stops.
Great place - quiet - slept well - relaxing.
Super location - close to good food, drinks, shops, metro + bus.
My daughter and I enjoyed our 4 days in DC - such a great and friendly city - we'll be back in the spring!
Was in town for the cherry blossom festival and initially decided to try this VRBO due to the hotel prices being elevated with the festival. It ended up being a good decision for multiple reasons. I always love having a kitchen when I'm traveling solo so I don't have to go out to eat for every meal. Though small, it had everything I needed for preparing some meals--even a shopping bag to use at the nearby Trader Joe's. The apartment was clean with a comfortable bed. I liked the "pure organic" towels so much that I tried to find where I could buy them for home. There is a little outside patio with a grill and nice big washer/dryer there in the basement if you need to do laundry. Like others have said, though it is a basement apt there were plenty of windows and light. I particularly loved the neighborhood. Many people out and about, visiting, walking dogs, eating on patios in the area. Lots of restaurants to choose from--the tacos at the taqueria two doors down are quite tasty and the carmelitas at the Bakehouse are yummy. The U St Metro station is very close and you can get all around the city easily on that. The Dupont Circle area (which also has a Metro station) is a slightly longer walk away but still less than a mile through nice neighborhoods and by a cute dog park on S Street. I appreciated the DC travel books that were on the bookshelf and there is a notebook there that tells how to work the remote to the TV. Eva was very helpful in responding to emails with any questions I had! I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone I knew!
Tips: Take an umbrella if any rain expected during your stay because the closest one to buy is several blocks away. Also, probably common sense but I struggled with it for a minute--the lockbox for the keys has a black button which releases the keys when you put the right code in, it doesn't open from the part that is hooked onto the railing which is what I kept trying to make it do:)
This is an excellent condo with great amenities and an amazing location. The property is exactly as described and the pictures are very accurate. There is everything you need to make this your home away from home. This is a much better value than a hotel room. The owner has thought of everything you may need during your stay (DVDs, books about DC, soap, shampoo, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, etc.). And if you forgot anything you need there is Trader Joe's around the corner and a Whole Foods
not far away. The best part of the condo is definitely the location. It is a great place to call home during your exploration of the city and just a couple minute walk to a metro on the Green/Yellow Line. I didn't contact the owner with any questions or require additional information, but the basic information Eva provided was more than enough for me. I am very impressed with the professionalism she displayed and would be very happy to rent from her again. I highly recommend this condo!
Great stay in DC. Apartment very clean. New appliances. Unit is small but suitable for family of 4. Metro stop 2 blocks away. Many restaurants and grocery very close. Able to park on street very close to unit. Would stay here again.
We cut our 5 day stay down to 3 and left DC early for the following reasons:
1. The hall was so full of stuff (old toys, pizza boxes, gallon jugs of chemicals) we could barely walk through to the apartment or to the outdoor patio (which was full of flies and dirty) when we arrived.
2. There was construction in the apartment down the hall which was very loud.
3. The basement apartment has strong mold odors and the white couch is in terrible condition.
4. The apartment, hall and laundry room had cockroaches-- big ones that didn't run away when we came in.
The owner refunded our money through VRBO but also insisted that the cockroaches were "water bugs" and the construction wasn't very loud since she didn't think we would mind it going on since we'd be out all day. I was very disappointed and would never stay here again.
The apartment was perfect. Great proximity the metro.
Pretty good restaurants nearby (I highly recommend Match Box). Owner was great. Very nice and helpful.
We had a great time in Washington! El apartmento es pequeño pero muy cómodo para conocer la ciudad. Está muy bien situado: el Metro está muy cerca y el vecindario tiene buenos restaurantes y cafés. Eva estuvo siempre dispuesta a ayudarnos. Su atención hizo que nuestro tiempo en la ciudad fuera muy agradable.
Esperamos regresar pronto.
