About Dara

I am an Executive Director for a microfinance non-profit. I also teach aerobics part-time. I speak French and my 8 year old daughter attends the Lycee Rochambeau French School. My husband is a lobbyist in the Health Care industry. We love traveling internally and enjoy hosting international visitors, especially French speaking and helping them to explore beautiful Washington, DC. We live in the main house above the rental unit.

Dara purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Dara chose U Street Corridor

The Logan Circle/ U Street neighborhood is one of the most desirable in NW Washington. There are restaurants, bars, shopping, health clubs, all within walking distance. A short metro ride brings you to the major attractions in Washington, including the museums, the Capitol, and the White House. You can borrow our parking pass and leave your car anywhere on the street in Zone 1. However, once you arrive, you really won't need your car.

What makes this apartment unique

Logan Circle is one of the city's most historic neighborhoods.

Ideal place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, would imagine it's difficult to find a better place from which to explore Washington. Great neighbourhood and a lovely comfortable apartment. Can't say anything bad about it.

Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

Dara was a great host, although we never met her she was always in touch ensuring everything was ok. We were provided with heaps of info and check in/out was easy. The place was just as in the photos- very neat, clean and with everything we needed. Having stayed in a hotel before in DC I would never stay anywhere else but at Dara`s place in future.

Perfect accomodation and location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the space, so much room!

The location was great, we walked to everything we visited, we did not need to use our metro card except for getting to and from the airport. The apartment is located in an historic area full of beautiful homes and gardens. There are plenty of restaurants a few minutes walk away.

An excellent stay, thank you Dara.

SUPER CUTE! Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My 9 yr old daughter and I were going to be in the area for 2 weeks and when comparing the price of a hotel vs this apartment, it worked out that the apt was cheaper by far. With the kitchen fully stocked, we were also able to save money by enjoying our own cooked meals.

We did not have need of a car while there. The U St. metro bus and rail stops are only a short walk away. From there, you can go anywhere! If you choose to go by bike, which we did one day, the National Mall is only about a 5-7 minute ride away.

My daughter fell in love with one of the dogs that lives about a block down toward U St. If you walk much in the neighborhood, you will quickly figure out where this golden lab is also!

The people you meet in this area are all very nice and helpful. Dara was always quick to respond to any request for help as well.

If we come back to WA DC, we will definitely see if this apartment is available. If you are looking for a place, I know you will NOT be disappointed here!
