LOCATION:

DuPont Circle is a vibrant neighborhood and great location from which to experience Washington, DC. You are just 2 blocks from the Red Line Metro stop, and can walk to historic Georgetown, George Washington University, The World Bank, and IMF, Embassy Row, think tanks, and museums, among others points of interest. The neighborhood is filled with wonderful restaurants, shops, cafes and grassy parks. On Sundays, the DuPont Circle Farmers Market is one of the largest in the city.

TRANSPORTATION:

The DuPont Circle Metro Station is just 2 blocks away, and bus lines are also convenient (Metrobuses and the DC Circulator). You won't need a car with the great access to public transit from this location!

If you do want to drive (whether for an hour's grocery store run, or a trip outside the city to Monticello or Gettysburg), consider registering online for Car2Go or Zipcar--flexible alternatives to traditional rental cars.

Biking? Capital Bikeshare makes bike rental a breeze.

REVIEW:

Irene and Jay – “The DuPont Circle Retreat is exactly that! A wonderful retreat! One evening after walking miles, we were so hungry that we got Pizza from the place on P Street, got some beverages at a grocery on P Street, and walked the 1/2 block to the apartment and had the best relaxing dinner on the patio. We left on an adventure every day. The Metro was easy to navigate, but frequently we just walked the entire way to our Smithsonian... the Kennedy Center... We felt comfortable and safe everywhere we went within miles of DuPont Circle. A wonderful stay, thank you! Charlotte was wonderful and extremely helpful via email prior to our stay, and our stay went smoothly. I would definitely stay here again, as the location was wonderful. The apartment was clean and comfortable.”

Our latest addition are vacation properties for Washingtonians. See the Washington Vacations section on our website for homes in the nearby mountains. Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.

A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the 'must-see' sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.

We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.

Reviewer Comments:

The neighborhood is nice but we didn't enjoy the accommodations. We saw a rat on the street the first night and then five minutes later, food was in front of our door which hadn't been there before. All the trash for the building is kept in front of this unit. After that, our ok space was made worse. The quality of furniture and amenities were not nice or comfortable. It was clean but not nice.

Reviewer Comments:

we made the mistake of arriving tired late on a Saturday thinking we could go to bed and rest only to learn that there was no complimentary coffee, cream,filters or sweetener so I hoofed back up two blocks to the CVS and bought those essentials that would have been standard in any cheap hotel room. Imagine my surprise the next morning to learn that there was no soap to shower with (I had my choice of my shampoo that I brought or antibacterial hand soap). I was even more surprised to learn that we had a half a roll of toilet paper and no Kleenex or paper towels. I heard the person (people) upstairs at their every move as the floor above squeaked with every step that they took. We had great difficulty re-setting the code on the door lock and later learned that when we used our installed code that we had to enter our code and then hit Schalge to have it open the lock. I am six feet tall the exact height of the ceiling in front of the bathroom sink. The bed that I slept in was reasonably comfortable but smelled of body odor the first night making me wonder if the sheets had been changed. Fortunately there is a washer and dryer.

Reviewer Comments:

This apartment is in a great location in Dupont Circle. The metro is within a few blocks and is close to a grocery store, just a block away. My daughter and I always had plenty of hot water and it was great to have a washer & dryer in the apartment. Our apartment was quite and we only heard the people in the apartment above us when they walked across the floor and that wasn't very often. The bed in the front bedroom is very comfortable and I slept good every night. The kitchen is well stocked with everything need to prepare a meal. I would definitly stay in the apartment again if I am ever back in the area.

Reviewer Comments:

We chose Dupont Circle because of its location to the Metro, the family-friendly neighborhood and the well-kept look of the rental. It was easy to book the apartment, instructions for arrival day for easy and clear and the accompanying neighborhood guides and maps were helpful. The property manager was very respons I very when we had an issue. The unit itself was quirky but the kitchen was fully stocked, the towels were fluffy and the decor was nice and contemporary. We very much enjoyed the unit. It made a week long vacation with 2 young kids easy and pleasant!

Reviewer Comments:

The location is wonderful. The place was quite clean. Probably it is usually quiet, though it was too hot out for us to tell (window air conditioners are noisy, as was the neighbor's AC). The patio is delightful. However, the place had some minor problems. The lock combination front door didn't work as promised (we were able to reset the first day, but it reset itself the second day, and we weren't able to change it. Contacted manager, but it wasn't addressed). The window fan was too broken to do much good. The coffee maker had a leaking gasket - not serious, we fixed it. The queen bed frame collapsed on our last night (140 lb man sitting down to kiss a small child goodnight - took about an hour to put back together). The non-stick pots and pans are all so scratched-up that I was worried to cook with them. Plumbers came and asked to be let in - they said we had been informed they were coming, but we had no notice (manager said they left a message, but we never received it) - a bit alarming. Paint cans (one on its side) next to dryer/furnace/water-heater were unnerving (possible fire hazard? Didn't verify contents). Garbage/recycling cans for the building are kept underneath the living room windows; these hadn't been emptied in some time, smelled pretty bad in apt. with window open; the day we arrived, the recycling can was already overflowing (perhaps relying on guests to set out trash isn't a good bet). Overall, could be a great place to stay but so many different small issues became a nuisance. Not sure if we'd stay there again or recommend to others.
