About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Dupont Circle

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 Dan Brown fan, the building plays a pivotal part in his novel, 'The Lost Symbol.'

probably my best experience with Home Away

  • of 5

Frank was great from start to finish. Prompt in responding to emails/questions before & during trip . Quick to return security deposit. Great rental - everything you need & more & great location. I would definitely recommend this rental. Frank is the perfect owner/"host" for your stay in DC.

Perfection in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful weekend in Washington DC thanks to this easy rental! From the parking pass to the keys, the towels, metro cards, dishes and blankets, this house will DEFINITELY be our choice rental again. Frank was incredibly easy to communicate with regarding our last minute questions and made sure we were comfortable the entire weekend. The location is also incredibly easy to get to places, especially for 20-somethings looking for places to eat, drink, etc. just a perfect spot down the street from U-Street.

Our alternative, as others have mentioned would've been a hotel and there is no way that a hotel measures up to this rental, it was truly a weekend in paradise!!

Great Accommodations and Location for DC Visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were extremely happy with our stay at this lovely apartment. It is such a nice change from the cramped, over-priced hotel where we stayed for our last visit. Since we were visiting in December, I was concerned that the apartment may not have sufficient heat as we've experienced with other VRBO's in the past. But it was toasty warm and so well- appointed; even including kleenex in the bedroom as well as the bath. It's a nice "extra touch" as I usually have to bring my own or buy extra from the drugstore when I'm vacationing. The apartment is close to the metro stop as well as grocery stores, post office, restaurants, and drugstore. Frank provides local information about restaurants, etc. which is very helpful. He also provides a grocery cart and reusable grocery bags which came in handy since DC charges for bags if you do not bring your own. The bedroom is roomy and bedding comfortable. The closets were quite large with lighting and plenty of hangers which was very nice to have! The bathroom looked a bit small in the picture but it actually has plenty of room with ample plugs and shelving. Frank was extremely easy to work with and very professional. When we return to DC again we will definitely be staying with Frank!
