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

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!

In the living room there is a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, 2 electric burners, 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 the apt. is not safe for children between crawling age and about age 5.

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.

Can't get a better location!

  • 5 of 5

I was in DC for work at the National Archives in College Park, and this top floor apt. right next to the Columbia Heights metro was the perfect location for me. There are a variety of restaurants and coffee shops (vegetarian and vegan) in the neighborhood, as well as shopping and grocery stores. Runners will enjoy relatively close access to Rock Creek Park trails. The apt. itself is very comfortable and clean, with a pleasant and comfortable bedroom and a sitting room/kitchen area that was stocked with utensils and necessities. Victoria was a lovely host; she was friendly and accessible, generous, easy-going and relaxed. As stated in the description, renters do walk through Victoria's home to reach the apt. on the 3rd floor. I didn't find this to be awkward or problematic at all. And of course, the kittens! There were two during my stay - what's not to love? I would happily stay at this property again during my next extended stay in DC.

Lovely rowhouse in great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home base for exploring DC. The accommodations were value priced and just roomy enough for our family of 5. Victoria was extremely helpful in navigating the area and taking care of the details like parking and metro cards. She even let us do laundry every night. The zoo was within walking distance for us, and the metro stop and numerous restaurants and shops are less than a block away. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in Victoria's apartment. It was such a nice place to stay during our trip to DC for graduation. The location and setup are great and so convenient to the metro, stores and restaurants -- really everything you need. The apartment is very clean with lots of natural light and so much more comfortable and affordable than a hotel.

Everything is accurately portrayed. Victoria is very responsive and provides a wealth of information and is available as much or as little as you need.

You are in for a treat if you enjoy pets, particularly the foster kittens.

Incredible location

  • 5 of 5

Victoria was a wonderful host with a clean and accommodating apartment. The location is excellent. You're within a couple minutes walk to all sorts of shopping and the metro. This is a great place for a couple to stay and possibly 4 people if you don't mind being in tight quarters. I'd happily stay here any time visiting DC.

We had a great time staying in the appartment of Victoria. It was very clean. The sleepingroom was Nice and a very good bed. Nice and relaxed neighbourshood. And the description is abslolutely accurate. There are Nice restaurants very close and the metro is just a few minutes walk.

I also could did my laundry that was very comfortabele and when we arrived Victoria had a metrocard for us, very kind.

I abslolutely can recommandate this appartement Tomas small family. 4 is maximum.

Tnx Victoria for our Nice stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks Els, I enjoyed hosting your family! One small clarification, the apt. is actually in the city, not "close to the city." I think you meant close to the National Mall/museums etc. We are 1.5 miles north of the White House.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The listing was as described. We stayed for 6 nights with our kids, ages 8 and 6. We could walk quickly to the Metro, Target, restaurants, etc. Our kids loved visiting Victoria's foster kittens! There is an indoor playground called Magic Ground above the Target which our kids enjoyed. The beds, pillows and linens were very comfortable; we slept great! Victoria was very helpful with any questions we had. We had a wonderful time on our trip and were thankful for such a great place to stay. I would definitely recommend this rental.
