Overview

Washington DC Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

In the trendiest, artsy section of Washington DC, Dupont Circle - example of Pierre L'Enfant's vision for the city, great avenues radiating off small parks like spokes on a wheel, we offer the best value in furnished apartments, truly a home away from home: just bring your clothes.

We offer luxury furnished apartment with availability throughout the year.

This one bedroom apartment with one bathroom on the third floor of historic Art Deco building is steps from world class restaurants, avant-garde theaters, trendy cafes and the best shopping this city has to offer. The apartment is decorated with passion and attention to detail: classic modern furniture, color coordinated organic sheets, rugs, cotton linens, kitchen and bath ware.

The building features outdoor seating patio, washer and dryer (shared) and close proximity to Metro only block and a half away.

Garage parking is available near our unit for $20 to $30 a day.

Street parking is by permit only between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. We can get visitor's parking pass for you from a local police station for $40 for the stay, and you can park, day and night, on the street. The parking pass is for zone 1, so any street marked zone 1 on the signs is fine (quite a large area). Please note that during the season the streets get cleaned -please read signs clearly and visibly posted on each street when you must move your car for street cleaning.

About Eva

hi,

originally from Prague, Czech Republic, Washington DC has become my second home twelve years ago when I came to study at Georgetown University.

I live in this wonderful city with my two boys Alexander and Christopher, only few blocks from the rental property. We spend every weekend at a museum (Air and Space is the favorite), hiking through Rock Creek Park or on a fifty year old carousel in front of the Smithsonian Gardens and we hope that all our guests enjoy this vibrant city as much as we do.

Eva purchased this condo in 2009

Why Eva chose Washington DC

As a single mom I need to provide for my two boys. I love to travel and so do my kids. Most of the time I travel out of DC and the situation helped me see that just as I love to leave the city and to explore other places, there are people who come to visit DC to spend time with their families. My two boys, my family, are the best critics of any place, as no furnishings are safe from their play and no vase is sacred to them. Our places are luxurious but ready to be used. I understand what most travelers need to feel comfortable since I have traveled extensively around the world to Africa, South and Central America, Asia and Europe . Please come and share your vacation time in our home. I promise that we will do our best to make you feel comfortable.

This is the reason I bought my rental property.

What makes this condo unique

From our apartment in the heart of Dupont Circle the access to all the tourist attractions, world famous restaurants, great bars and the biggest selection of privately owned galleries is just steps away. The metro stop is only a block and a half away, next to Starbucks. The 14 Street buses run directly downtown from our bus station at the end of the block; every two minutes during rush hour and every six minutes other times.

The White house, The Mall and The Smithsonian Museums are less than a mile away; about fifteen minute walk or few metro stops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eva,

thanks!

A few suggestions to visitors : U Street Cafe - great breakfast. Marakesh for dinners.

No National Aquarium. They charge and sucks!

DC Noodles rocks. (Thai food).

Our go to apartment in D.C.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location! We were close enough to the main attractions in D.C. to walk or take a quick uber ride, but far enough away to enjoy somewhat of a local experience which was nice. The apartment was clean and well equipped for a cozy, quiet stay. There are great restaurants in the area and Trader Joes right around the corner. It was great!

Perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

Eva was a great host. Very organized and accommodating. The apartment was clean, well furnished, and comfortable for two people. It is close to the action on 14th street, so it can be noisy in the weekends, but we were able to largely solve that by turning on the fan on the A/C. The white noise muted most of the noise and we slept quite well. The internet was a bit slow, but reliable. High quality kitchen appliances and good kitchen tools and utensils (albeit sparse), in case you are planning to cook. The best thing really is the location, especially if you enjoy nightlife. Great neighbourhood and restaurants (the Taqueria Nacional is authentically awesome!). The second best thing was the heater in the bathroom. We will definitely try to book again with Eva if we come back.

Nice Apartment but with one draw back..

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

Very good location that is not far from DC main attractions. Unlike those travelers who bought Metro passes and used Metro train and bus, I find it is much cheaper for a family of 3-4 to user Uber Taxi. When we were there, we used UBER all the time. One day pass of a Metro ticket is $15 per person, while the most expensive UBER fare we paid was $7. Somehow UBER fare in DC is much cheaper than in most other US cities.

Cons:

Parking can be challenging and is an extra cost. Also, as some previous travelers pointed out, the street can be very noisy at night, especially during weekends, due to close to restaurants and bars. I was woke up almost every night because some people driving by blowing their horns, shouting on the street, and one time, being chased by cops.

Nice apartment with a few drawbacks

  • 3 of 5

As previous reviewers have said, the location is fantastic. Away from the crowds, but with a fun DC vibe. Oh, and use the U Street metro station, it's WAY closer than DuPont Circle. Unfortunately, the crowds at the nearby bars and restaurants stay up much later than our little family, so it was tough to get to sleep on Friday night. Also, our 2nd floor apartment (not 3rd floor as listed here) didn't have air conditioning, so closing the windows wasn't an option. There's no way we could have stayed there in the height of the summer.

The apartment is also pretty small with limited storage, so pack light. The queen size bed takes up the entire bedroom, so you have to climb over the other person to get out of bed. It worked for the three of us, but would hate to see any more than that.

Having said that, the apartment was clean, well stocked and Eva was easy to book through.

Charming and well located.

  • 4 of 5

Eva's apartment was wonderful. We went into the White House and Capitol area daily during our stay, Eva's place is close to the Mall, and museums. We took the metro, and Uber, but had to walk from the Tidal Basin one day. It did't take very long.The neighborhood has great restaurants, and a Trader Joe's nearby .

I made a mistake booking my stay, and needed another day. Eva was able to help us out. Three of us stayed here for a week, and we loved it.

Mother daughter road trip

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Eva so much for our wonderful stay. The apartment is in a wonderful location, near restaurants, cafes and shops. The apartment is very clean and cute. The parking pass definately helped. My boyfriend, daughter and I stayed here very comfortably. It was for my daughters 17th birthday and could not have been more perfect. I definately hope I will be able to come back and stay here again. Have fun to who ever may stay here.
