Overview

Downtown - Washington DC Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Large efficiency. 1 bed, 1 bath, sleeps up to 2 adults, 4 total.

If your dates are not available, ask me about an apartment near Georgetown in Rosslyn, VA.

Nice efficiency apartment in a popular neighborhood. Within walking distance to many restaurants, pubs, and cafes. It is very close to metro - only a 5 minute walk to the Shaw metro stop on the yellow line. Great for a couple, small family, or short-term work assignment. There is a private entrance and it is equipped with a large flat screen tv, that you can watch in bed on lazy days, high speed wireless internet, washer and dryer and full size kitchen.

Though car is not necessary the apartment comes with a neighborhood parking pass to park on the street free of charge.

There are three large grocery stores about a mile away: Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, and a Trader Joe's; there is also a corner market around the corner.

Linens, towels, shampoo, dishes, pots, etc. are all provided

This is a completely private apartment on the ground floor of a townhouse on Cooper Circle with natural morning light from the front window and door.

Below is a map of the apartment location with my restaurant recommendations and and the route to the Shaw metro stop: http://goo.gl/maps/3FMk3

comfort, clean, and walking distance

  • 4 of 5
The place was nice and clean. Austin provided everything we need. Thank you for the parking ticket. All is great just one thing that make me take one star off (would like to take just half star off), noise from upper level. However, I didn't hear it during nighttime. Thank you Austin. Really appreciate your kindness :)

Fantastic

It was a small, but really good apartment. We were four collage students who wanted to do some sightseeing and have a good time, this location was perfect for the purpose. Austin was very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.

Don't stay here

Don't stay here

This was the worst holiday rental EVER. Not only can you here everything that is said or moved upstairs, you can also here the movement of water ie plumbing. The basement is not intended or built for dual occupation. We didn't get any sleep and considering leaving DC one day early due to lack of sleep and lack of alternative accommodation. We would never consider renting a basement rental with the upstairs occupied again because of this awful experience.

Owner's Response: Before this guest rented the apartment, I told her that there would be several adults staying in the unit above, and that if they were making noise after 10pm to call or text me so I could let the group know that they were causing a disturbance. Unfortunately, the guest that wrote this review never called. The apartment is in a century old house with wood floors and you can hear the people walking above and pipes at times. Out of the 100 or so guest that have stayed here only 3 have complained of noise and each time a notification to the upstairs guests rectified the problem.

A wonderful place to call home on our vacation

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was such a great place to have as our home base during our vacation in DC.

The furniture was comfortable, the bed was great! Lots of extra pillows and linens provided. Tile floor was nice on the warm days we were there.

We were surprised at how quiet it was inside. As mentioned by other visitors, yes you can hear the people walking around upstairs, but nothing worse than we have heard when living in other apartments with upstairs neighbors, and it usually ended around the same time we went to bed anyway. But as for street noise and sirens and people talking outside, we heard none of it throughout the night. It was great!

The restaurants around the apartment are great! We stopped at Right Proper Brewing or Shaw Tavern almost every evening for drinks before heading home for dinner.

Couple of gripes:
The crickets were insane! We caught several inside the apartment and a couple woke us up in the middle of the night, they were somewhere inside but we could not find them. Don't know if that's something you can spray for or not.

Lack of traction or grab bars in the tub. I did slip and fall once (luckily I'm young and bouncy) but someone might really hurt themselves.

Need a few more useful utensils in the kitchen. Knives could use an upgrade as well as a decent spatula and pizza cutter. We were on a limited budget so we cooked at the apartment a lot and those were the things we missed.

Other than that yes the ceilings are low, but for two people on the shorter side, it wasn't a big deal.

Overall this place was great for our trip and we would definitely stay there again!

Cute and convenient

  • 4 of 5
This place was just as pictured. It is in a cute, quiet neighborhood, and is less than a 5-minute walk to the metro. Others comments are spot on: low ceilings (bathroom is literally 6 feet), footsteps above are loud. Not bothersome if you're expecting it. I would definitely stay here again.
