About the property

Enjoy All DC Has To Offer: Only 3 Blocks To Metro!

***** Please note that this apartment is booked and managed through Airbnb. The VRBO/Homeaway calendar and rates are not updated. Please check availability and rates and contact me on the Airbnb listing. To find it, search listings in Brookland, DC and you will see "Comfort and Convenience -- metro 3 blks" ********

This brand new, private apartment boasts the comforts of home and the quiet of the country with easy access to all DC has to offer! Located just 3 blocks from the Brookland metro and 2 blocks to bike share, transit to DC sites takes just 20 minutes.

The space:

This 400sq ft apartment is brand new construction, designed to give you a hotel experience at an affordable price. The queen-sized bed has a memory foam mattress. The bathroom boasts an extra-large spa shower with premium amenities and towels. The mini-kitchen includes coffee and tea service, a microwave and toaster, and a full set of dishes and utensils. The apartment is located on the ground level of our home, with exterior access from the screened back porch and a view of the expansive back garden. One of the most enjoyable aspects of your stay will be the peaceful surroundings, which feel miles away from the city. This property backs up to a natural park; the view is green and the birds are plentiful!


The apartment is entirely self-contained with a private entrance at the rear of the house. Keys will be available in a lock box on the back porch. You are welcome to use the screened back porch, back yard and gas BBQ grill during your stay.

I am happy to provide a guest book in the apartment with loads of information regarding options for transit, activities, and restaurants (including menus!). Should you have any issues or questions or require any assistance during your stay, don't hesitate to contact me by text or phone.

The neighborhood:

Brookland has become one of DC's hottest neighborhoods! In addition to the National Basilica and Catholic University, Brookland boasts ten brand new restaurants and bars, an eclectic arts walk and shops, and a farmer's market. Our community is diverse and very friendly, gathering for neighborhood events several times a year -- including the Home and Garden Tour every June! Brookland is quiet and green, an oasis of calm with all the convenience of the city!

Getting Around:

The location is 2.5 blocks from the Brookland-CUA (Red line) metro station; just a 15 min ride from Metro Center. There is a Capital Bikeshare bike rental 1.5 blocks away and the metropolitan branch bike trail runs from Brookland south to Capitol Hill. Within easy walking distance are restaurants, bars, a grocery, pharmacy, bank, dry cleaners, even nail salons!

Things to Note:

This space is not recommended for guests taller than 6 feet. The ceilings are about seven feet tall. The head clearance in the shower is 6'4". There is one low-hanging duct with head clearance of 5'10".

The kitchen is a mini-kitchen and does not include a cook-top or oven, though you are welcome to use the 4-burner gas grill in the back yard.

My very sweet and docile dog, Charlie, also has access to the back yard via doggie-door.

Access to the apartment requires walking about 50 ft down a fairly steep driveway. Those with limited mobility should take this into consideration.
