Overview

About the property

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4

This charming apartment is the entire 3rd floor of an historic row house in the dynamic neighborhood of Columbia Heights.

Price INCLUDES tax and cleaning (for stays of 4+ nights.)

From March-July, there is minimum stay of 4 nights unless there is a natural gap on the calendar.

The apartment 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 5 stops (7-10 minutes) to tourist areas - Smithsonian museums, US Capitol, Convention Center, Zoo.

What's Nearby? - Within 2 blocks you will find dozens of restaurants and cafes, neighborhood pubs, coffee shops, grocery Store, CVS drugstore.

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.

High speed Wireless INTERNET.

In the living room there is a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, 2 electric burners, toaster, coffee maker, crock pot, etc. - everything you need to prepare light meals.

You have use of washer/dryer on 2nd floor.

Because of the open stairs the apt. is not safe for crawling babies and toddlers.

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.

I provide a permit for free street parking.

Off street parking is available - $10.00 per night.

I accept credit cards through PayPal.

Please tell me a bit about yourself in your reply.

About Victoria

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.

Victoria purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Victoria chose Washington DC

Columbia Heights is an historic and diverse neighborhood right in the middle of the city, close to everything. Being 1/2 block to a Metro station makes everything easier!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first real vacation to D.C. and we could not have picked a better place to stay. Close to Metro station - just a 3-4 minute walk - and close to good places to eat and shop. Just two of us so we had plenty of room - fully furnished with everything you need and very comfortable for resting up for the next adventure. Landlady was very nice and usually home to ask questions and give advice. Neighborhood was quite nice and we never had any safety / security concerns. We would very highly recommend you give this place serious consideration if going to D.C. For us, it was just about perfect.

Great location, great host

  • 5 of 5

Victoria's place was in a great location, very close to the metro. The upstairs apartment was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Victoria was more than accommodating and went out of her way to make our stay great. She provided multiple sets of keys, metro cards, lots of recommendations, and even let us leave our bags at her place while we did some last minute sightseeing before heading home. Highly recommend!

Comfortable and safe, close to what you need!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd stay with Victoria and it was a perfect choice both times. I stayed with my husband in October when we came to meet our new grandson and it was perfect! Less than a block from the metro, which is so easy to use, and several restaurants within a block or two, which are easy to walk to.

Our apartment was clean and private and Victoria is a great host! She made the entire process easy and comfortable and when I was back in March with an Aunt, it was an easy choice to make as to where we would stay!

I would feel comfortable traveling and staying with Victoria by myself or with a companion!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a wonderful place to stay and Victoria is kind and easy to work with. Our group of 4 was very comfortable. The room was very clean and the metro, many restaurants (both local and chain), and a CVS and Target are in easy walking distance. We enjoyed our trip to D.C. so much and the easy accessibility of this apartment was a lot of the reason. We would stay here again without question.

It was a good place to stay for our family of 3

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Victoria's house was just what we needed. Very home like atmosphere; the place was quiet and clean; rooms were light and warm. When we walked in, the first thing that came on my mind was that the owner prepared everything for us nicely and she cares. The kitchenette really had more than we expected. Victoria was a great help at either recommending the best restaurants to eat or places to visit. Thank you so much Victoria. And if we ever go to Washington again, we would like to stay at your place.

great place for an extended stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented this apt. for the week leading up to our daughter's wedding last fall. It was very roomy for the two of us & made a comfortable home base, & is convenient to everything, especially the Metro. If you're a walker, there are lots of options within reasonable walking distance. We took advantage of the off street parking behind the house, which made life a little easier, too. Victoria was very accommodating & helpful & we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Just be careful you don't step on one of the adorable kittens on your way in/ out . . . they like to keep a close eye on things, as does Ginger the dog. All in all, a good value & friendly, comfortable place to stay in DC.

2nd Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay with Victoria, as usual, she is a wonderful host and ambassador for her city. The apartment is a very comfortable place to end a long day of sightseeing. Wide range of dinner and snack options within walking distance. Being on a direct metro line to Reagan National makes traveling extremely convenient. Having a host available to answer questions and give tips about what's going on in DC is a real plus. I would stay here again and recommend her to anyone interested in visiting DC.
