STUDIO TOP-FLOOR APT IN GREAT DC NEIGHBORHOOD; BUS TO DOWNTOWN & THE MALL

Palisades Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Top-floor hideaway in a great DC neighborhood; Bus to Downtown & The Mall. You’ll enjoy the private deck, in addition to your private entrance; the cozy alcove; and the flexibility of 3 separate beds (including queen bed).

DESCRIPTION:

The Bird’s Nest studio apartment is a great escape in the heart of one of Washington, DC's loveliest neighborhoods: the Palisades Village. The private entrance leads to a beautifully crafted wood spiral staircase. Some of the first things you'll appreciate: the queen bed, private deck, sleeper sofa, and a unique alcove. This step-up sleeping/reading alcove comes with an armchair that folds out to a twin bed, and a sliding door for privacy. Kids love it! So thanks to the queen-sized bed, the sleeper sofa, and the armchair that unfolds into a twin, you'll actually have 3 separate beds in this unit. Or, you can just keep your secret hideaway to yourself!

(Note that for this visit or a future visit, there are 4 apartments in this converted town-home that can accommodate families or parties of up to 13.)

We provide a detailed 10-page Welcome Guide upon confirmation of your reservation with helpful details about your apartment, neighborhood and Washington to ensure that you get the most out of your visit.

There are a variety of restaurants to try, a Starbucks, a mini-market, a pharmacy, several banks, post office, cleaners, and other conveniences. Just 5 blocks from the apartment, in the heart of Palisades Village, you’ll find a marvelous fish market, upscale wine store, Safeway, CVS, community library, more restaurants to sample, and gourmet take-out.

The apartment is close to several other distinguished institutions: approximately 2 miles away you'll find American University, and closer in you'll be near Georgetown University, George Washington University's Mount Vernon Campus, and the French and German Embassies.

About Charlotte Perry

My business is LUXbnb, we offer short-stay properties in wonderful neighborhoods in Northwest Washington including those areas in high demand by visitors, i.e. DuPont Circle, Georgetown, Palisades and Capitol Hill. You can view some of our other studios and homes for stays from 4 nights up to 8 months; see HomeAway # 914007, 3495967, 3495973, 3495995, 3495973, 3496279, 3496282, 3496283 and 3496278 for details. Let us know your travel plans and we will find the best fit for your needs. Be generous and share the knowledge of LUXbnb, your source for short-stay rentals in Washington, with your friends, family and colleagues.

Our latest addition are vacation properties for Washingtonians. See the Washington Vacations section on our website for homes in the nearby mountains. Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.

A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the 'must-see' sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.

We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.

An enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5
A little smaller than we had anticipated, but still very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Listing is accurate, things were clean and well maintained, the property managers were quick to respond and helpful, and I would recommend this property. We enjoyed the little Chinese carry out place right down the street.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful trip to D.C. and a big part of it was staying at the Bird Nest. It was so comfortable, clean, convenient, and fun! The price was reasonable, and we loved having an escape from the city. However, it is a very short drive or bus ride to all of the sites. It was perfect for me, my husband, and our children, who are 8 and 11 years old. Highly recommend staying at the Bird Nest.

lovely home

  • 5 of 5
I loved living in this studio. My husband and children did as well. The owner (Mathias) is a great person. There is private parking and its a comfortable living area. Both the apartment and its location are stellar. The apartment was very clean and cozy. I would definately recommend it to anyone going to visit Washington D.C. The bus stop is across the street but make sure you get off the bus at MacArthur and Dana.... otherwise you may have a long walk. (LOL) If you have a car I suggest you take your car everywhere... parking isn't as bad as people make it out to be. This apartment is close to supermarket,pharmacy, and many restaurants.... I loved BAMBU. In either case.... this place rocked!! Please head to this apartment and enjoy....
