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

Comfortable, easy access to metro.

  • 5 of 5
We visited DC for sight seeing and taking in the history. We found the apartment comfortable and local to restaurants, shops, and the metro. We flew into DC and didn't need a car at all. Nearest metro was about a half mile walk and a cab was easy to catch. The apartment met all our needs, plus. The owner was close by but we had no issues to where we needed him. There were four adults in our party and we all enjoyed staying there. I would certainly stay there again. Thanks to the owner, Frank, for a great experience with the apartment. This was my first time using a VRBO.

Spacious 1 bedroom apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5
Dealing with Frank was an absolute pleasure, he was very responsive and presented accommodation which is very much focused on the travellers needs. Sadly we did not get to meet Frank, but hopefully next time and apologies for not writing the review earlier. We stayed in this beautiful apartment for 2 nights in May 2014. It was well appointed with everything we needed, comfortable and spacious. The neighbourhood is historic and beautiful, close to transport and all the amenities we needed to self cater. It was also convenient to all of the sights we wanted to see in DC. We would definitely stay again.

Great Location and Owner!

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was exactly as presented on VRBO. Frank, the owner, was responsive and accommodating. I really appreciated the Metro/Bus SmartCard (fares are significantly less expensive with it) and the notebook with the closest stores, pharmacies, gas stations as well as menus from nearby restaurants. As a single woman, I felt safe in the neighborhood - it was residential and a short walk to restaurants, stores, bus stops, and metro station.

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.
