This charming apartment is the entire 3rd floor of an historic row house in the dynamic neighborhood of Columbia Heights.
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.
I have a dog and two cats (and often foster kittens) in the main house. The animals never go into the apartment.

For more than 2 people there is an additional $10.00 (total, not per person) per night.

Location and value all in o
The apartment is perfect for a stay in Washington DC and is located close to shopping, restaurants and the Metro. Our host, Victoria, had the apartment spotless and it is equipped with everything needed . Victoria is very helpful and provided Metro cards for using the subway. She's the perfect host and was available as needed with information to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.
Myself and my two teenage daughters were delighted being able to stay at Victoria's apartment for 6 nights. It was great returning to such a homely environment each evening after a day of sightseeing. It was very clean, spacious and cosy. Having chats with Victoria when leaving or arriving back each day added to our enjoyment ... as well as the special welcome from Ginger and the cats ! Columbia Heights felt like a safe and welcoming community with plenty of shops and places to eat. Spoilt for choice actually. Seconds to the metro in a very quiet street. I would have no hesitation to return there or to recommend it to family or friends. Our whole stay in DC was made so much better by our luck in finding Victoria's place.
Super convenient, clean and comfortable

Victoria is great, she is very welcoming and happy to help with information. The apartment was very nice and bed was comfy. My kids absolutely loved being able to play with her foster kittens and dog. Highly recommended. Easy Metro, and shopping access. Thank you Victoria.
Super convenient. So close to Metro and many restaurants.
Beautiful clean, comfortable apt. with everything you need. 1/2 block to many restaurants, shops, bars, and of course, the Metro - which gets you to the museums - door to door - in 12 minutes.
Convient dc apartment
Couple minute walk to subway and bus. 2 beds and bedrooms. Safe and easy access to DC. Victoria is very accommodating allowing us to use bus passes, and zoo pass. Only downside is apatrment floors dirty and walking up lots of stairs. Love kittens also.
I'm sorry you found the floors not up to your standards. I wish you had mentioned it while you were here so I could have cleaned them. The floors are mopped between guests.
