Dupont Circle Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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.'

This was a great space for my family of 5; kids were 6, 12 and 14. Owner was super accommodating and helpful with check-in and obtaining parking pass for us since we drove in. Would absolutely recommend and consider staying again in the future. Quiet neighborhood and space. Within walking distance to metro stations and bus stops. Deposit was refunded the day we departed. Thank you so much for making this part of our stay so easy!

This apartment is a fantastic deal and is completely as advertised in the listing. Frank was quite helpful and responsive.
We loved DC and how close this place was to many fantastic restaurants. The U street metro was only a few blocks away & we found this location to be VERY convenient to everything. We mostly used the kitchen for coffee and toast, but it was functional, for sure.
I would like to note that the stairs going down to the apartment are quite steep.
Thank you, Frank!

Great place to rest after a long day of exploring the city!!

My family stayed in Frank's basement apartment for 7 full days while we explored the wonders of DC. We have two (tween) boys. We could not have asked for a better resting place at the end of long days than this apartment provided. It is in a neat little part of the city with nearby resturants and grocery stores. We choose to pack our lunches daily and mostly cooked our evening meals in the apt to save money. Whole Foods and Safeway provided all we needed for these meals.

The metro was a GREAT adventure. Just a short walk way to get just about anywhere you want to go. Study the maps :)

This place is clean, well stocked with basic needs, comfortable and makes you feel at home away from home!! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

We had a wonderful one week stay in this apartment. It came with everything we needed and was an easy walk to two Metro Stations on two different lines. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Washington DC.

Great Apartment and Location

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this lovely apartment and we could not have been happier - well, actually, if the museums and monuments had not been closed we might have been a tad happier, but we still had a great time! The apartment is in a great location - so quiet that it is hard to believe you are in the middle of the city. Frank has thought of pretty much everything - right down to the Smart Trip cards that can be topped up. It was nice to have a washer and dryer - and a dishwasher, although we did not use it as there was only the two of us. This apartment really is a gem - clean and comfortable and within walking distance of the Mall. We highly recommend Capital Bike Share - there is a 'station' close to Whole Foods (fabulous grocery store!) which is only a few blocks from the apartment - what a great way to get around the city - love all the bike lanes and that DC is so bike friendly. We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to come back when the Museums and Monuments are open! One more thing - Frank was extremely quick in refunding our deposit - it was processed the day we left. Thanks Frank for offering such a lovely place to stay!
