Why sally obrien chose Washington DC

The Gowan House is an historic rowhouse in Foggy Bottom between 25th street and St. Paul's Church. The house was built in 1890 and has four floors. The apartment is about 700 square feet. We have central air conditioning and central heat and a fan is available for those who prefer to open the window. The apartment has security features and is on a safe street. The front door of the apartment is protected with two doors with deadbolt locks.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is perfect for visitors seeing the major sights in DC or for those attending meetings in downtown DC. We are located on the blue/orange/silver line metro with easy access to Dulles and Reagan Airports. We are within quick walking distance of shops, grocery stores, and restaurants. 25th Street is quiet and a nice place to walk in the evening on the way to Kennedy Center or LIsner Auditorium. We are within walking distance of the Lincoln Memorial and the Mall

Convenient spot to stay

  • 4 of 5

Close to Trader Joe's and metro station. Don't need the a car since the metro station is super close, about 2 blocks away.

I brought my family of 2 kids with me (2 and 5 year old ) and had no problem with them sleeping in this place. Shower provided great hot water consistently .

Comfortable and very convenient!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful stay! The house was easy to find, very comfortable and literally 5 minutes from the metro. Trader Joe's was a block and a half away for our groceries and last minute treats!! I loved cooking in the kitchen for our brunch and dinner. Sally was easy to contact and responded quickly when we had a question. Great neighborhood and so happy to be able to store our luggage for our last day of touring around DC! Thanks, Sally:)

Flat in historic building near GW -- clean, convenient and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in the owner's other properties and I will confirm that they maintain this flat as well as the others-- this one, however, has quite a large kitchen. The space would suit up to four people, probably a family of four without cramping. Close to both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods; close to metro stop, GW, World Bank, IMF, many professional offices. If you like to watch television in your off hours, this one has splendid one. I travel for business, but even spending all day and most of the evening in offices, this property permits me comfortably to have an early breakfast, a pleasant neighborhood walk, a late dinner, and avoid the space limitations and constraints of having a room in a hotel.

Fall in DC Foggy Bottom flat

  • 3 of 5

Nice apartment with plenty of room & fantastic location. We were able to park on the street very close to the apt over the weekend for free which was great. The keyless entry was very convenient, once we got the hang of it. Sofa bed was comfortable, great TV & area for hanging out after dinner. The bath is off the master bedroom, so a little juggling when everyone was getting ready to go out. Only issue was there were only three towels in the entire apt. We managed but pretty inconvenient not having hand, face or dish towels. Sally was out of town & very responsive to text messages but unable to get us more towels.

We were able to walk to just about everyplace including Georgetown, The Mall, etc and Trade Joe's which is just down the block so we could get basic supplies for the weekend. I would recommend.

We are located in a residential enclave in downtown Washington DC. Perfect for sightseeing or business trips to the World Bank, IMF, GW University, State Department, embassies and US Institute of Peace. Our guests often bike or walk to Washington Harbor, Rock Creek Park, the Washington Mall, C&O Canal. All of the Smithsonian Museums are easily accessible by Metro or Circulator Bus, and the Textile Museum and Washingtonia Museum just a 10 minute walk. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a 14 minute walk (buses also available).

Because this house is in a quiet neighborhood we ask guests to refrain from loud music after 10pm.
