Overview

Palisades Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

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.

LOCATION:

In the serenity of your "Bird's Nest" hideaway, you might feel like you're far away, but you'll be in walking distance of wonderful places. 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. On Sundays, you can stroll over to the Farmer’s Market for breakfast and to stock up on provisions.

Would you like to get in a great workout, or enjoy the great outdoors? You're 3 blocks from Battery-Kemble National Park's hiking trails; the trail to the Potomac River; the Capital Crescent Bike Trail, the C&O Canal tow path; and Fletcher's Boathouse, where you can rent canoes, kayaks, row boats, and bicycles.

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.

TRANSPORTATION:

The Bird's Nest apartment is located on the D5/D6 bus lines (MacArthur Blvd NW & Dana Pl. NW, 1/2 block away). The route takes you on a beautiful ride through historic Georgetown, DuPont Circle, Foggy Bottom, The World Bank, The White House, Downtown, The National Mall, Penn Quarter, Metro Center, Union Station and The Capital Building, i.e. everything that you would want to see! Fetch a Starbucks first, then sit back and relax while you enjoy your $1.70 bus ride through some of the most interesting and beautiful neighborhoods in the city!

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.

Reviewer Comments:
My mom and I enjoyed every minute we spent at Bird's nest. The rental is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood with restaurants and convenience shops nearby. The room had everything we needed, even an outdoor table for summer breakfast. Comfortable beds, nice bath shower, and a convenient washing and drying machine. We enjoyed taking the bus downtown everyday. Seeing the locals go about their business is as much fun as it is visiting the sights. We want to go back!

Reviewer Comments:
My family stayed here when we brought our daughter to American University, so there were three of us two nights and two of us for a third night. The location could not be beat--5 minutes to AU. The apartment was clean and very quiet, dark with shades drawn, but bright with drapes and skylight covers open. My daughter loved the sleeping nook! Nice sunny little balcony for reading. Washer and dryer a big plus. The construction of the apartment was very well done. Charlotte was very prompt about making arrangements, and Matthias was very responsive when we had a question about parking. Will definitely stay here again when we're visiting our daughter. Thanks!

Very nice neighborhood, quiet and safe. The room was very nice, but a bit small for 4 people as it is only one room. The owners were very helpful and responded promptly to answer any questions we had.
