Look no further - this is truly in the heart of Dupont Circle, not in the outskirts like nearly everything else on the vacation rental market. You won’t find a city neighborhood as safe and nice as the heart of Dupont Circle, which is why we’re sure you’ll be glad you selected our home! For those unfamiliar with DC, Northwest DC (NW) is by far the safest area and even within NW there are big differences. The same goes for Dupont Circle - the closer in you are to the center, the safer and better, which is why our location is unbeatable. You'll feel relaxed when you stay in our completely renovated Carriage House in the heart of Washington DC's safest and best neighborhood. Situated in a prime spot in Dupont Circle you will be just steps from the Metro, shops and restaurants. The carriage house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and hardwood floors throughout. Depending on your needs/availability, we can supply you with either a king and queen bed w/full sleeper sofa or a queen and 2 twin beds. It also has a fully equipped all new kitchen, washer/dryer, fireplace, 2 TVs, free wireless Internet and cable TV and opens to a private courtyard with patio furniture and charcoal grill. Depending on your needs/availability, sleeping accommodations include either a king and queen bed w/full sleeper sofa or a queen and 2 twin beds. From this house, you are just steps to the metro (five minute walk), restaurants, shops, etc. and short walk to DC attractions (Georgetown, White House, National Mall, museums, art galleries) and 2 blocks to DC tour bus stop.
Larger parties can be accommodated by reserving both properties at this location; please inquire.

I wanted you to know that my sister and enjoyed your rental. Everything worked well, and the location couldn't be any better. We loved the area and its proximity to what we wanted to see.
We especially appreciate your quick replies throughout the rental process. If any of our friends mention a trip to DC, we will certainly let them know about your place.
Have a great weekend.
We are a family of three, including a 3-yr old. In town for vacation, our plan was to get around on foot and public transit.
Unit C was as described, although it was larger than we expected based on the online pictures. Very clean. It was hot and humid during our stay, and the air conditioner worked well to keep the indoor temps comfortable. Although the staircase is a tight spiral as has been described, we are sufficiently able-bodied and had no problems going up and down; others might find the tight fit problematic. We were glad there was a washer and dryer (downstairs) and dishwasher (kitchen) along with the necessary soaps, all of which we used. There were no bath soaps.
It was easy dealing with Jennifer to get more info before and after the booking. She usually responded within 24hrs with specific answers to our questions. Booking the unit was simple, and the keyless entry system worked efficiently.
The neighborhood was fantastic. Lovely architecture, tree-lined streets, lots of flowers, safe. It was within one block of plenty of shops and restaurants and an easy 5-min walk to Dupont Circle metro station. Because of the 3-yr old, it was very convenient to have everything so close and accessible. We were back in the neighborhood for all dinners, and there were plenty of dining options. The farmer’s market on Sunday morning was awesome, great for grazing as well as collecting ingredients to prep for dinner. We did both!
For those with young kids, there are two parks with nice playgrounds (Mitchell, Stead parks) within 10-15min walk of the apartment, as well as several ice cream shops.
We would stay there again and recommend it to others with the staircase caveat described above.
My family of 5--two adults, 3 kids age 3 to 13, stayed here for 5 nights in the middle of October. We cooked every morning with breakfast goodies from the Safeway that is only 5 blocks away and an easy/safe walk. Packed sandwiches and snacks and either walked, or took the DC Metro everywhere we went. Right in Dupont Circle, check out restaurants: Mission---awesome tacos! Or Cirque for a little more up-scale dining. I would highly recommend this VRBO due to Jennifer being very responsive, its location, how clean and modern the apt. was, and the neighborhood! Great value!
Our family of four settled on DC for our vacation. I found the carriage house after an extensive search. I had no idea how great the location really would be. This area of DC is perfect. SO CLOSE to everything, yet very private and safe. You couldn't ask for a better place. I will recommend to all who ask me and we WILL be back!! Jennifer was a pleasure to work with!!
We stayed in Unit B for a week for the GW graduation. It is an English garden apartment, not the one on the website but with very similar furnishings and finishes. Jennifer, the owner, provided photos that accurately represented the unit. There was sufficient light, all living spaces having windows except the 2nd BR (which we knew about). The unit is well located. It is within easy walking distance from Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and the 14th St restaurant area. It's around the corner from Filter coffee shop, with excellent espresso drinks. The metro is minutes away and convenient to Reagan National. We walked to the mall & museums, about 25 minutes. We would definitely stay there again.
I just got back from staying at the Carriage House for 5 days and had a wonderful experience. The house was comfortable and clean with everything we needed. We were a group of 6 adults and we all slept very comfortable. The members of my group kept saying how great this apartment was. At night the neighborhood was very quiet and we all got a good night sleep. The Carriage House does not feel like a rental. We felt at home and totally enjoyed this house. Working with Jennifer was a pleasure. When I checked in I called Jennifer and she was very helpful. She gave me great suggestions for places to eat. The neighborhood is very safe. At night we safely walked to the restaurant. The area had many restaurants to choose from. Not only would I rent this place again but I will tell anyone who is going to Washington DC to stay at this place too.
Jennifer, thank you.
Agree with other reviews, apt is located within easy walking distance to Dupont Circle, Metro, shops and restaurants. Big plus was being able to park our car in garage located below apt and not having to worry about finding a spot on street. Apt was great, beds comfortable and kitchen had everything you might need. Apt was clean and well maintained. Neighborhood is lovely, felt safe and enjoyed walking everywhere. Jennifer was great to work with and kept in touch during our stay. Would highly recommend this rental.
