Overview

Washington DC Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy this charming 1br/1ba (sleeps 2-4+) English Basement apartment with private entrance in a historic 1890s Townhouse within walking distance of Dupont Circle, Logan Circle and the U Street Corridor. This tastefully furnished apartment has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a queen size sleeper sofa, plus several inflatable beds of various sizes. It's a perfect location for a business trip or a visit to DC's many incredible sites.

The apartment is a stone's throw from dozens of restaurants, shops, clubs and within easy walking distance of two Metro lines.

About Frank Albinder

I'm a classical musician who's lived in Washington DC for more than 13 years. It's a great city in so many ways, I'm glad I can share my basement apartment with visitors from around the world. I live in the main house above the apartment, so I'm easily available to assist guests with their visits in the national's capital.

Frank Albinder purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Frank Albinder chose Washington DC

I love my neighborhood with its historical townhouses and apartment buildings, restaurants, shops and nearby public transportation. Though in the heart of Washington, the apartment is in a residential neighborhood populated with a wide variety of residents, including young Congressional and White House staffers, young families, couples and singles from all over the world. (Few people in DC are actually from DC!) One of the coolest things about where I live is the giant Masonic House of the Temple, located right across the street from the apartment. The building was designed by John Russell Pope, architect of the Jefferson Memorial and the National Archives, and it's one of the most impressive buildings in Washington. It serves as the Southern Headquarters for the 33rd degree of Scottish Rite Masonry, and a tour of the building is fascinating and entertaining. If you're a Dan Brown fan, the building plays a pivotal part in his novel, 'The Lost Symbol.'

Everything in the process was super easy....Frank gave us detailed instructions before arriving, upon arrival and for checkout. He was easily available during the entire process.

The apartment felt like a home away from home , comfortable bed and pillows, everything was labeled for convenience.

We can easily make this our home base for future DC visits.

Thanks Frank for making your home available for travelers.

Thanksgiving weekend

We visited our son for Thanksgiving weekend. The location was excellent for sightseeing and walking to restaurants. Frank was very easy to reach for any questions and also accommodating for any special requests. We enjoyed our stay.

Great Location Reasonable Price

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle yet easily accessible by public transportation including Capital Bikeshare and Uber. An easy walk to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and a plethora of restaurants on 14th street. Very comfortable. Owner is upstairs, readily available to answer questions, very accommodating.

Really Nice!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stay a week at this charming apartment. The apartment looked exactly as the picture. It is close to metro and restaurants. Even though you don't need a car, we rented a car after a couple of days. My husband just moved the car when necessary. No big thing. We would recommend this apartment.
