About the property

Total of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms; Sleeps up to 6 people

Look no further - this is truly in the heart of Dupont Circle and steps from the metro - unlike other listings we are not in the outskirts or located in an adjacent neighborhood like Logan Circle or Adams Morgan. If you are unfamiliar with DC, Northwest DC (NW) is by far the safest quadrant and even within NW there are big differences. The same goes for Dupont Circle - the closer in you are to the center, the safer and better, which is why our location is unbeatable! You won’t find a city neighborhood as safe and nice as the heart of Dupont Circle, which is one of the reasons we’re sure you’ll be glad you selected our home!

In addition to the superb location, what sets us apart from other rentals is our large courtyard with dining table and grill; when it's too cold outside to enjoy that, we have a gas fireplace in the living room to create the perfect cozy spot to retreat after a day of taking in the sights!

You'll feel relaxed and at home when you stay in the Carriage House, located in the heart of Washington DC's safest and best neighborhood. From this house, you are just steps to the metro (five minute walk), restaurants, shops, etc. and short walk to DC attractions (Georgetown, White House, National Mall, museums, art galleries) and 2 blocks to DC tour bus stop

The carriage house is a stand-alone two story apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and new hardwood floors throughout. Virtually all of the rentals on this site have neighbors above and/or below. Carriage Houses are unique in that they do not have other apartments above or below; however, most Carriage Houses have an alley entrance while ours allows you to enter through the front of the property so you have the benefit of both privacy and safety!

Master bedroom: Queen bed and TV; separate full bathroom

2nd Bedroom: Two Twin beds and full bathroom. A Queen inflatable mattress fits in this room for additional sleeping space.

It has a fully equipped all new kitchen, washer/dryer, central air/heat, skylight, fireplace, 2 TVs, free wireless Internet and cable TV and opens to a private courtyard with patio furniture and charcoal grill.

Layout: The main floor has a family room/kitchen area, master bedroom and a full bathroom. The kitchen is fully stocked, has a breakfast bar and opens to the family room with a flat screen TV and fireplace. Off this space is the master bedroom with a queen size bed and flat screen TV and also a full bathroom. From the family room area, there's a spiral staircase that leads down to the first level with the second bedroom, with 2 twin beds and a TV and a full bathroom and separate laundry room. The first level also has a deck and its own entry since it's on the ground floor; however the main entry to this apartment on the second floor, up a flight of stairs. There is also an inflatable mattress that provides additional sleeping space. The apartment has a lot of light but also provides a lot of privacy, both from other people (since it is a stand-alone unit) and from your other guests since the bedrooms are on different floors; however the layout is not as ideal for children under 3 or people who have difficulty with stairs.

The entrance to this apartment is up a flight of stairs so if you would like to avoid stairs our other apartment at this location may work better for you.

Larger parties can be accommodated by reserving both properties at this location; please inquire.

Prime Neighborhood: Dupont Circle Historical District is one of Washington's best neighborhoods and is considered one of the safest areas. Dupont Circle is a cosmopolitan neighborhood with some of Washington, DC's finest museums, historic homes and foreign embassies as well as a variety of ethnic restaurants, bookstores, and private art galleries. The Circle itself is a gathering place with park benches, grass and a unique fountain in the center.

Accommodations: This unit can accommodate up to 6 people and it is nonsmoking.

Why Jennifer, Booking Manager chose Dupont Circle

Location, Location, Location. Very few places are as close to the metro and our neighborhood, Dupont Circle, is a safe and fun neighborhood with a lot to do!

This is a stand alone house - no neighbors above or below you!

In warm months, enjoy the outdoor courtyard with a grill and dining table.

In colder months, enjoy the gas fireplace.

New furnishings.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted you to know that my sister and enjoyed your rental. Everything worked well, and the location couldn't be any better. We loved the area and its proximity to what we wanted to see.

We especially appreciate your quick replies throughout the rental process. If any of our friends mention a trip to DC, we will certainly let them know about your place.

Have a great weekend.

Great location, much better option than hotel

  • 5 of 5

Great location, safe neighborhoid, walk to restaurants and metro (We used Uber the whole time though). Stocked kitchen, small but nice living room with tv, spacious home for family of four. No comparison to hotel, take this every time. Some minor issues but nothing bad and I’d recommend staying here for sure.

Overall nice condo - furnishings, clean, and in good neighborhood. Entry / stairwell not the best, but doesn't detract from overall value. Jennifer was also very easy / good to work with....recommended.

Great location and very nice carriage house. Highly recommend. The only “less than”was finding street parking.

Comfortable lodgings in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is well set up with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The location was excellent - close to the Mall and to Georgetown (around $7-8 by Uber) and also very close to supermarkets. The kitchen is well stocked with all you need to make breakfast or an evening meal (if you can resist the local restaurants!). We had a couple of hot humid days so the air conditioning was great. The garage was also a big plus, although we found driving the DC one way streets a challenge! Overall, we highly rate this property for anyone wanting to stay in a great location close to the sights. Jennifer is a pleasure to deal with.
