About the property

Private garden level apartment two blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro.

Just two blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro, across from a bikeshare station, and on a number of convenient bus routes! Located within a stones throw of many great places to eat and experience the neighborhood. Walk to the weekend farmers market and prepare dinner your fully equipped kitchen! Keep cool with Central Air. Friendly hosts available to help make the most of your visit!


Brand new garden apartment in a classic 110 year old DC row house steps from centrally located Columbia Heights Metro Station. The space has four distinct living areas with a private entrance: one bedroom with queen bed, full kitchen with breakfast bar, entertainment area with sleeper sofa, and a full bathroom with shower. The unit also has in-unit laundry. The kitchen is stocked with all the basic tools to prep a meal at home, but if we're missing something let us know! The living area has a 40" TV, with over the air HD network programming (no cable), and a smart Blu-ray player for watching movies and streaming services like Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime. High speed wireless internet is provided. A selection of board games are included.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the entire lower level private apartment through their own separate entrance. Share the stoop and enjoy 11th Street - great fun for people watching, to take in an amateur soccer game on the weekend over coffee, or have a sunset happy hour! While we have a backyard, it's unfortunately under construction this summer.

Guest interaction

The hosts live directly upstairs and are happy to offer help, ideas, or extra supplies to make your stay great. Otherwise, the space is all yours to enjoy as you run through your itinerary!

Neighborhood overview

11th Street in Columbia Heights boasts many popular and award winning restaurants and bars, all within blocks. This includes Wonderland Ballroom, the Bad Saint, Meridian Pint, Room 11, El Chucho, the Coupe and more. Just two blocks away from DC USA - which has a Target, DSW and other shops. Also nearby is a grocery store, a beer and wine shop, and several take out and fast food options. This area has something to offer for all tastes. DC's famous U St Corridor with more great food and entertainment is just under a mile away. From your apartment its a clear shot to everything DC has to offer. The space is within striking distance of the DC Convention Center, Howard University, Verizon Center, and Nationals Stadium.

Getting around

The apartment is located two blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro station, which is on the green/yellow lines (the ones that aren't experiencing track work all year). From here, it's a direct ride to the National Mall (10 minutes), the National's Ballpark (14 mins), Chinatown/Verizon Center (7 mins), and Washington National Airport (DCA) (20 mins). The apartment is also located on a number of bus lines. There is a City Bike rental directly across the street, and bike lanes run down 11th Street to the National Mall and surrounding Smithsonian museums and monuments. Uber and Lyft are easily hailed as well! A guest on-street parking permit is available for use, inquire with hosts for access and tips on where to park. There are also two garages relatively close at DC USA and Giant for about $20 per day.

Other things to note

This is a city apartment on a city street, you'll hear some noise. But, the bedroom is in the back of the house and is quiet. It's a row house, which is great and part of the charm, but there are shared walls to the north and south as well and your hosts live upstairs. You may hear your neighbors. Also, children, no matter the age, do count as guests. Be aware when booking. The sleeper sofa bed is slightly smaller than a full size bed. It is great for a couple, or two smaller people. It could be a bit cozy for two large adults.

About Zac Champ

My name is Zac, my wife Jane and I purchased this 100+ year old row house in 2015 and went about fixing it up. Many dollars, and too many grey hairs later it's a wonderful home. I work as a lawyer in the telecom field and Jane works the federal budget.
