Junior 1 Bedroom Apt / Sleeps 3
About Greg Sitzmann
We moved to DC together in 2005, the year we were married. It was going to be a short-term stay, and here we are 12 years later. We absolutely love our city.
Greg Sitzmann purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Greg Sitzmann chose Shaw
The nice thing about the English basement apartment is that it's only a couple steps below ground. So it really feels more like a first-floor space. The ceilings are high. And the four tall windows let in plenty of natural light.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our neighborhood, Shaw, is also called Old City. It has a great neighborhood vibe. Subway stops are convenient. But if you like to walk, it's a beautiful city to see on foot.

The photos accurately depict this place. High end and nicely appointed. Bed was super comfy and provided great sleep. Kitchen had all the basics to make simple meals. Washer/Dryer and detergent provided.
Best thing was the owner of the property. We had small issue and he was super fast to respond. Nice and friendly.
My only suggestion would be to get a taller table/dresser for TV or to mount on wall. Hard to watch laying in bed and only TV in place. I enjoyed staying here and if we find ourselves in this area again, wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Nice for the price
This apartment is exactly as described. It is small but a good size for two people. It was very clean and had all the essentials. You are told to bring your own shampoo and bath soap. The bed is comfortable and it is relatively quiet at night. The location is nice. It seems like. A nice neighborhood. We would stop by Colonial Coffee shop on our walk to the metro in the mornings to get a coffee and muffin then took an Uber back in the evenings which ran around $10.00-$11.00. There were plenty of places to eat within walking distance having a grocery store close by was a plus. Greg was great to respond when I messaged. The parking pass was $25.00. Since we drove the pass was well worth it. We parked our car and did not have to move our vehicle rest of the trip. I read some reviews about problems with the internet. It took me a few tries to connect but once we got connected there wasn’t any other issues.
Way beyond essentials
The apartment was perfect. It was very well lit and had way beyond the essentials, including washer/drier and coffee grinder. It was a very short walk to a 24-hour supermarket, multiple restaurants, and a bike-share dock. The owners received a package for us containing a very important item (laptop!) left at home and FedExed to us. The notebook in the apartment contained a list (with descriptions) of restaurants within walking distance, sorted by distance. This was a refreshing change from the usual notebook with a list of rules.
Parking is obtainable but not abundant. Be prepared to park distantly in certain windows of time or plan to arrive at a time when parking is more available. I highly recommend this VRBO and it is very convenient!
We had a wonderful time and would stay again! The apartment was perfectly appointed and a lovely place to come “home” to every evening! Just what we needed.
The space was exactly what we expected. It was close to the metro amd easy to navigate. The owner was responsive and helpful with accommodations we requested. Excellent stay!
We're located just 3 blocks from the Convention Center.
