Comfortable, spacious pied-à-terre just:

-- 6 blocks from the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum,

-- 8 blocks to the Smithsonian Castle,

-- 1 block from Washington’s Southwest Waterfront, and

-- a15-minute walk to the Tidal Basin’s cherry blossom trees!

Or hop on the Metro at the L’Enfant Plaza subway hub – 4 blocks away – to get to Arlington Memorial Cemetery, the National Zoo, the White House or U.S. Capitol in minutes.

A new grocery store, drugstore, and other shops are four blocks away – and so is a Capital Bikeshare docking station, where you can rent a bike then drop it off wherever you’re going – or return one that you picked up from elsewhere.

Our daylight basement means plenty of light but the apartment stays cool, even in DC’s humid summers. The new kitchen is fully equipped. . . the new travertine+marble bathroom has a step-in shower. . . a spacious bedroom with a king-sized bed and and flat screen TVs in the LR and BR make this a haven after a hectic day.

A reserved parking space – a rarity in the city – opens other options for easily getting around town.

At dusk, listen for the ship’s horn as the Odyssey dinner cruise pulls out of the nearby marina. . . stay in and grill on the enclosed back patio (shared with fellow VRBO guests upstairs). . . stroll to DC’s floating fish market for the freshest seafood in town. . . book theater tickets for a memorable evening at the stunning Arena Stage showplace two blocks away. . . or head to nearby restaurants:

* Cantina Marina is a fun neighborhood watering hole and restaurant on the water where the Sequoia (once the presidential yacht) is docked

* Phillips Seafoood and other reliable favorites also line the waterfront

* The Mandarin Oriental Hotel (whose five-star elegance draws foreign dignitaries and VIPs) has a choice of restaurants

* A mile north, Gallery Place/Chinatown is one of Washington’s nightlife and dining destinations -- and where the Caps and Wizards play

A Supreme Court Chief Justice was the first owner of our house, and the neighborhood remains home to many long-time residents. While you’re here, why not join them in the conclusion that – with everything else to do in DC – there is no reason to waste time commuting!

My husband and I were extremely comfortable in this cozy apartment. It was immaculate, well appointed with everything you could possibly need. We walked to all of the museums, the White House, a great bar and grill on the waterfront, the fresh fish market, Safeway. The wifi worked perfectly, as did everything else. We were delighted. Thanks to Deborah who answered any questions we had, gave us wonderful directions and enabled us to have a flawless visit!

This unit has so many fine qualities : Very clean and accurately described, all appliances in good condition and working order, walking distance to the National Mall, convenient to 2 Metro stations (we preferred the Waterfront due to it's closer proximity), designated parking spot, safe neighborhood, restaurants (try the Monday special at Station 4) and grocery nearby, very well stocked with linens & kitchen items, attentive and responsive owner. There were also some small surprises: motion detector night lights, brochures, maps, and Metro Cards on lanyards. My 80+ year old mother and I managed the Metro system very easily. I read some negative comments about the dehumidifiers - I personally felt they provided nice "white noise" to the city sounds. We had tenants above us, but we only noticed walking noise when we were in the kitchen/living room and not in the bedroom. It was not obtrusive at all. I would definitely rent this unit again.

A very unique and great place to stay in the DC area. Walking to the mall is a breeze and the parking space was just what we needed. This place will only get better with completion of the reconstruction of the wharf area. We especially enjoyed the fresh tomatoes and peaches provided by the owners, This is something we have never encountered before. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.

great value

I enjoyed staying here. The neighborhood is quiet, the kitchen is fully equipped, and it is very clean. It was great to have a dedicated parking space (so if you prefer to drive to different places in DC, this place is for you). When the wifi stopped working, I texted the owner, and she had the neighbors upstairs fix it right away! And on the day after we departed, I received a VRBO notice that my deposit was refunded. I certainly appreciate how quick that was.

Loved it!

My daughter and I found this apartment to be the perfect location for touring Washington DC. This was our first visit and we walked to almost all of our destinations. The neighborhood is lovely and we felt very safe. It was just a short walk to the Capitol Mall and all of the Smithsonian Museums. We had no trouble finding dining choices within walking distance. We did take the metro out to visit friends at the end of the line one day and found it easy to navigate that as well. The apartment itself was cool and comfortable as well as very cute. Deborah gave us a call the first night to make sure that all was well and made sure we knew we could contact her if there was anything we needed. I will be telling my friends and anyone I know who needs a great place to stay in DC.

We were doing a family vacation and this was a perfect place for us to stay as it was walking distance to all the statues, the capital, mall of america and a very homey neighborhood. It is close to a safeway for staples, the waterfront is nearby and the metro and bus is close. Deborah was so helpful and professional. Everything was exactly as she said and our cleaning refund was almost in our acct. before we unpacked!! She has thought of everything you might need. I would recommend this apt. for sure!!!!
