COMFORTABLE APT. WALK TO METRO SUBWAY, RESTAURANTS. W/PARKING.

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

CUTE, CLEAN, CONVENIENT, AFFORDABLE...BUT NOISY

  • 4 of 5
This place fit our needs great, it was cute, tidy, in a great location and a really good price -- but the people who live upstairs have very noisy kids. All three mornings we were there, they were running around by 6 AM making it hard to sleep in for those of our party who are light sleepers. Also the ceilings are pretty low, so if you are much taller than 6 feet you might feel a bit cramped.

Owner's Response: There are quiet hours for the the unit above the apartment, which I also own, and making excessive noise at 6:00am is against the house rules. In the past, guests quiet down as soon as they realize they are disturbing someone. I am happy to let them know they are making too much noise. :-)

Families with children tend to be louder, so if you are concerned, ask me if the upstairs is rented and whether there are young kids. Thanks! -Austin

THE EFFICIENCY APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
This is a great little place. It looks like the pictures and was clean, except for a little baseboard dust. The kitchen is well stocked. We had 4 people. My daughter slept on the couch and my son on an air mattress (which we requested). There were plenty of sheets and towels. You can even use the washer and dryer in the back. The Shaw/Howard Metro station is close and there are also Zip Cars nearby. There is one drawback that I would say is substantial and that is the noise from upstairs. The upper unit is also a vacation rental. I spoke with our neighbors above, but even though they were being considerate, footsteps and water pipes were very noisy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I'm a fairly heavy sleeper, so this was never an issue for me when I lived in the apartment. The apartment is in a 100 year old row house and upstairs footsteps can be heard, especially when people are coming and going through the front entry.

Families with children tend to be louder, so if you are concerned about your upcoming trip, ask me if the upstairs is rented and whether there are young kids.

Thanks!

CONVENIENT, CLEAN, CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
The Cooper Circle House was a perfect spot for our family of 4 to stay. The walk to the Shaw-Howard Metro Station takes less than 7 minutes and then it is a cheap ($1.60) 2-stop ride to the National Archives. The apartment is just as the pictures show and is very clean. The only cons I experienced were 2; the sheets are threadbare from a lot of use, and the couch that folds out to a bed is MUCH smaller than a-full sized bed so it is a tight fit for 2 to sleep on. My daughters are 9 and 12 and were pretty cramped. Austin was always available to answer any questions and the recommended markets and restaurants were great. This is a garden-level apartment and does have very low ceilings. The only place that was a problem was in the bathroom/shower/bathtub as the ceiling is even lower to accommodate the duct work. We loved having pastries and donuts with fresh brewed coffee in the mornings and really could have cooked in the fully stocked kitchen if we had needed to. I would stay again in a heartbeat!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This rental is a wonderful place to stay, it is reasonably close to a metro station and just a couple of stops away from downtown. The place itself is quite comfortable and practical. Also, Austin was very attentive and easy to talk to. I woul definitely recommend it!

IT WAS PERFECT - CLEAN, COMFORTABLE AND SAFE.

  • 5 of 5
It was well decorated and comfortable, even better than pics. Very attractive front yard. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. I enjoyed walking around the area and there were several good restaurants in walking distance. I liked Shaw's Tavern. Austin was very helpful and answered all my questions.

GREAT HOME BASE IN DC

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this quaint, garden apartment 4 nights and it was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children under 10). Austin, the owner could not have been more accommodating. Even before we arrived, he was very responsive to e-mail inquiries and while we were there, he e-mailed a couple times to be sure we didn't need anything and to let us know when he would be working in the yard so he didn't disturb us.

The apartment itself is very nicely decorated, exactly what you see in the photos. The kitchen is a good size and very nicely equipped with pots, pans, dishes, utensils, toaster and coffee pot. Really anything you need to prep food. The bed was very comfortable and the fold-down sofa was very nice for our kids.

The neighborhood is really cute there's a little park across the street with benches and trees, very nice spot for reading. The metro is a few blocks away and Austin gave us a list of nearby restaurants in case we wanted to eat locally. There’s also a CVS drugstore nearby.

We felt very safe in the neighborhood, regardless of what time we came home. I would recommend this apartment to friends and would definitely stay here again. Many thanks Austin and maybe we will see you again!
