This wonderfully situated apartment is located in one of DC's most vibrant neighborhoods with a rich cultural history. To quote the New York Times (2006), 'The Corridor is Cool Again.' Walk to Whole Foods,Trader Joe's, the Saturday Farmer's Market, and two metro stops. With both antique and contemporary furnishings and decor shops, art galleries, fabulous and unique eateries, coffee spots, and clothing boutiques within two blocks, your 'free' hours will be happily filled. The Mall is either a long walk or a metro ride away and cabs are readily available. The area is alive into the night and affords the visitor a feeling of comfort when walking about at late hours.
The apartment is the lower level of a restored home on the historic register and was completely renovated and professionally designed in 2010. The owners live on the upper two levels.

We bought our home in 2009, attracted by the diversity, vibrancy, and convenience of the neighborhood. As professionals, we wanted to be close to work. As parents, we wanted to be within walking or public transport distance of all that DC has to offer. We are thrilled with our choice.

The American Planning Council in 2011 named U Street one of the Great Places in America. See for yourself why they made this selection.
This is terrific place to stay for a great visit in DC, and you’ll feel right at home. We spent two months there and it was a great home away from home. It’s very nicely furnished without any feel of sparseness that you get in some furnished apartments – very at-home feeling. It’s impeccably clean and we were greeted with a cheese/chocolate basket and bus/Metro passes (though if you’re over 65, go with your ID to get your own senior card which halves the cost of each ride). The apartment is compact but very well organized, and you have a storage space in one closet and your own washer and dryer in another closet, each of which are off the hall and take away none of the living space. When you look at the pictures, you might wonder where you’d eat, but the table, which can seat six, simply has leaves which aren’t apparent – and with only one leaf out, it sits four. Great planning. It’s wonderfully convenient, with lots on U Street, and the Green/Yellow line U street stop is two blocks away. A very convenient grocery is less than a block away and an organic grocery 2 ½ blocks away. The owners are very nice and helpful – they live upstairs and are very helpful, but also unobtrusive. Plan on this apartment for a great stay!!
We stayed for a month! Everything was as good or better than advertised!! The owners live up stairs and were available when needed! The condo was super clean! The beds were very comfortable! The fire places provided atmosphere!! Lightening was soft! Lots of attention to details, in the kitchen and bathrooms! The only suggestion I would offer is that the sofa be replaced with one which is more comfortable for sitting. Also, my i phone did not work. My husband's did!! Internet was stronger in the front of the condo!! The area is awesome! Great bus and metro service! Interesting restaurants! Felt safe at all times! YES grocery store was close and mostly organic! Very quiet! We recommend this rental!!
The apartment is well furnished and has everything that you will need. The location is the best in the DC. You will love the endless options for shopping, dinning and night life just a few blocks from the apartment. The owners are friendly, as well as, the neighbors. Enjoy your stay. I certaining did!
The U Street neighborhood seems to exemplify DC’s vibrant diversity: simultaneously classy, historic, gentrified and edgy. We are a family of adults – two older, three younger – one living in DC – and this was a perfect location. From here, we wandered together and separately during almost all hours of the day and night to explore the rest of the city and attend a variety of events. Two blocks from the Metro, we were near restaurants, cafes, shops, clubs, churches, and parks. Transportation options were plentiful. We took the Metro to the Zoo, National Mall, and beyond, and walked to dinner and shops in adjacent Dupont and Logan Circles and to Adams-Morgan, the Federal Triangle, Foggy Bottom, and Georgetown. It required no effort to hail a cab. Two Bikeshare stations are close. We had access to a car twice; not surprisingly, on-street parking was a challenge but available.
This downstairs apartment in a historic row house was recently renovated. It has wifi, full kitchen and laundry facilities, new appliances, many windows, two fireplaces, killer air-conditioning, lots of closets, cabinets and drawers. It is very nicely decorated but not over-the-top modern; rather, it is comfortably eclectic, with books to read and enough TV channels for anyone. It was easy to work from here, and you could also pull off a dinner party or sit on the front patio and watch the world. We were provided with extra towels, pillows and bedding, a large air mattress, laundry detergent and cleaning supplies.
We liked that the owners’ family lives upstairs and loves their home and their community. They gave us useful recommendations like critiques of local grocery stores within reasonable walking distance. They are genuinely nice people, very conscientious, easy to communicate with by email, phone, or in person. Overall, we appreciated their flexibility; they met two sets of arrivals to give us keys, and accommodated two sets of departures, varying numbers of people, and a Wednesday through Tuesday week. This was a last-minute arrangement for a week typically booked far ahead; we had airline tickets, graduation plans, dinner reservations, and no place to stay. We wanted an upscale and secure but interesting location with enough room for us all to go in separate directions, convenient to transportation, yet somewhat affordable. Other property owners I contacted gave no response. Here, I received an immediate reply about availability and my questions were answered in detail. Thanks!
