This charming apartment is the entire 3rd floor of an historic row house in the dynamic neighborhood of Columbia Heights.
It is separate and private with a door at the bottom of the stairs, but the entry is through the main house where I live. You may come and go as you please. I'm a writer & work at home.
Location- only Half-block from Columbia Heights Metro station, (Yellow/Green line) it is only ten minutes to most tourist sites - Smithsonian museums, US Capitol, Convention Center, Zoo.
What's Nearby? - Within 2 blocks you will find dozens of restaurants and cafes, a wine-bar, neighborhood pub, 2 coffee shops, a wine store, Starbucks, a Grocery Store, 24 hr. CVS drugstore.
DC-USA shopping center with Target & Marshals. (Travel light and buy it all here!)
Other neighborhoods with similar vibrant nightlife & restaurants - Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, Mount Pleasant & U st - are an easy 15-20 minute walk, or one subway stop away.
Just three more stops along (no need to change trains) is the bustling Gallery Place/Chinatown neighborhood, with the MCI arena, Convention Center, American Art Museum, Spy museum, dozens of shops and restaurants, a 14 screen movie theater, even a bowling alley!
Amenities- The apartment has one bedroom with queen sized bed, a full bathroom and a separate living room with a comfy queen-sized sofa bed. There is a TV with cable & DVD in each room.
In the living room there is a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker etc. - everything you need to prepare light meals. You have use of washer/dryer on 2nd floor.
Children - Because of the stairs I don't take children between crawling and about age 5.
Older children are welcome. There is one Aerobed available, making it possible for 3 children to share the living room. This is very crowded however and not recommended for longer than 4 nights.
Free street parking permit. Off street parking is available.
Availability - Spring (March through June) fills fast. Please consult the calendar for openings.

I'm a novelist. I was born in Washington DC and have lived here most of my life. I've traveled and worked all over the world and enjoy sharing my city with visitors.
Columbia Heights is an historic and diverse neighborhood right in the middle of the city, close to everything.
