I'm a classical musician who's lived in Washington DC for more than 13 years. It's a great city in so many ways, I'm glad I can share my basement apartment with visitors from around the world. I live in the main house above the apartment, so I'm easily available to assist guests with their visits in the national's capital.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2002

I love my neighborhood with its historical townhouses and apartment buildings, restaurants, shops and nearby public transportation. Though in the heart of Washington, the apartment is in a residential neighborhood populated with a wide variety of residents, including young Congressional and White House staffers, young families, couples and singles from all over the world. (Few people in DC are actually from DC!) One of the coolest things about where I live is the giant Masonic House of the Temple, located right across the street from the apartment. The building was designed by John Russell Pope, architect of the Jefferson Memorial and the National Archives, and it's one of the most impressive buildings in Washington. It serves as the Southern Headquarters for the 33rd degree of Scottish Rite Masonry, and a tour of the building is fascinating and entertaining. If you're a Scott Brown fan, the building plays a pivotal part in his novel, 'The Lost Symbol.'

SPECIAL TRIP FOR GRANDSON

  • 4 of 5
The location was good. Nice quite area. Felt very comfortable on streets but we were not out at night. Metro buses couple of blocks. Not close enough to walk to White House, etc. Metro is very easy to get around in DC. The apartment could have been a little cleaner for me. I also have VRBO property and I try to keep it very clean. Left note to owner but I don't know if he received it. Stairs down to basement are very steep, have to be very careful. Did not meet or see owner because he had jury duty but was able to call him and he returned call. Apartment very compact but fine for grandparents and 12 year old grandson. Loved having a washer and dryer. If you are driving and getting Frank to get a parking pass for you, just make sure you arrive by mid afternoon or you may be parking several blocks away for a night or two. We drove but parked and did not drive for 7 days until we left DC. All in all we were comfortable and could relax after a long day of sightseeing.

GREAT STAY WITH THE FAMILY IN DC!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in Frank’s apartment and it suited our family perfectly. The apartment is central to 2 Metro stops and just 1 block away from a Metrobus stop. We enjoyed walking through the beautiful neighborhood and particularly loved the Masonic temple built by Pope just around the corner. It’s breathtaking! We also appreciated being close to a Trader Joes and Safeway to buy food, snacks, etc.

Some of our favorite affordable, but delicious food finds nearby included Nando’s Peri Peri Chicken, Mr. Yogato’s frozen yogurt, and The Shake Shack.

Frank was great to work with as well and we appreciated his responsiveness.

Thanks for a memorable stay in a beautiful location!

SPRING BREAK IN DC!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment worked perfectly for our family spring break vacation in DC. We were able to get to the apt. via Taxi from Reagan Airport (cost $20) and settle in immediately. The area has whole foods etc. and outstanding restaurants. Once we got our bearings, the transit systems worked great. We were glad that we picked this location over the ones next to the White House which seemed touristy and loud. We prefer to stay in interesting neighborhoods that give us a flavor of the community yet accessible to attractions/cultural institutions, etc.

Frank, the owner, is responsive and helpful. We highly recommend this rental in Dupont Circle.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Frank's apartment could not have been any more perfect for our DC experience. My sister and I treated our father to a trip to our nation's capital for his 80th birthday. Frank's apartment is well equipped with luxurious bedding, plentiful towels, quality pots and pans, spices etc. Our father had the bedroom for his privacy with a luxurious bed and tv. Sister and I were very comfortable on sofa and air bed in the living area. The neighborhood is lovely and a quiet and safe place to retire after a busy day among the masses. Trader Joe's and whole foods are near by as well as many wonderful restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries. Bus stops and subway stations are within a few blocks. I will definitely recommend Frank's lovely apartment and hope to return in the near future to experienc more of our nation's capital.

FABULOUS LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
This property was all we hoped for...and more! Absolutely everything you might need or want is at your fingertips. The queen bed is elegant and comfortable, the linens crisp and attractive, the towels fluffy and abundant, the kitchen stocked with condiments and spices. A ring binder filled with menus and sightseeing info is invaluable and this DuPont Circle location can't be beat. WiFi worked like a charm, as did everything in this condo, and we hated to leave.
Sincere thanks, Frank, for all you did to make our stay carefree and FUN!!
