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).
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.

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.
