About Dara

I am an Executive Director for a microfinance non-profit. I also teach aerobics part-time. I speak French and my 6 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 Washington DC

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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

Great location! Walking distance to the metro with plenty of restaurants near by.

  • 5 of 5

Great location that's walking distance to the metro. Plenty of restaurants near by. The property itself was nice and clean. It had everything we needed for a short trip. We arrived very late at night and it was easy to find.

Trendy Neighborhood and Sunny Basement Apt.

  • 4 of 5

Roomy and modern clean-basement apt. with ample light and a great A/C! I echo what other reviews have said about the weekday, early morning, upstairs feet walking patterings directly above the bedroom. Not a game changer, but ear plugs would definitely be a plus!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is beautiful and staying like you are a member of the neighborhood is the best part. Dara was more than accommodating and provided info and updates on transportation, where to eat and drink, where to park, etc. The unit is around the corner from tons of restaurants, shops and bars as well as a short metro or uber ride to all of the sights. I would recommend to anyone and definitely stay again!

Great location, big space and responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is in an excellent location, is a big and comfortable space and the owner is very responsive. Close to the fun 14th Street NW shops and restaurants as well as Trader Joes and Whole Foods. 1 block to U Metro stop. A bit confusing because we did not know there were 2 rental units on the property (so we ended up unpacking in the wrong one and then repacked to move.) One challenge is that as a basement apartment you can hear all the walking above and the bedroom is below the kitchen and stairs. Nonetheless we would definitely rent again!

Great location and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Dara's could not have been more convenient. Location cannot be beat. Check in/check out was a breeze and she was an amazing host. She responded promptly to all of my questions which basically involved needing a printer unexpectedly for work-she even offered to print it for me. The bed and pillows are also SUPER comfy. The only thing I would mention is that as other reviewers have written it is quite loud with footsteps above. We were barely there so it didn't really bother us, but if you are looking for some R and R this may not be the place. However, if you are looking for a convenient place to stay without any issues I would totally recommend it, and I would stay here again despite the pitter patter upstairs.

As advertised, a very functional place to stay in DC and a good value

  • 4 of 5

Good location (a block from the Metro). Very functional apartment. It was clean and contained all of the convinces one might need. A variety of good restaurants within 5+ minutes walk.
