New Rental. Garden Apartment in renovated brownstone.
About Owner/Property Manager
Both Jeff and I enjoy city living and this was one of the reasons we decided to move back to DC after sending the last child off to College last year. Jeff bought the house back in 1992 and lived there for some years before moving across the Potomac to raise the family. We started planning our major renovation three years ago and started the project in early Spring of 2016. We moved in, in late October of 2017. It took some time to settle down as the work continued well into the Winter and following Spring, but we are now ready to receive guests in our beautifully updated home. The apartment was thoughtfully fitted out to provide comfort, efficiency and style. Its accessed by your own private entrance to the front of the house and we invite our guests to use the patio outfitted with table and chairs as a place to sit and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the passing pedestrians coming and going along our more secluded but equally busy street. We overlook the park to the front and the circle beyond. We love that we can walk everywhere and Jeff cycles to work and back as his office is in Chinatown. Wholefoods is a few minutes walk, as is Trader Joes and Giant. Restaurants, Theatres, Galleries and Venues are all within a short walk and we find we really don't have need for a car anymore. We also have a home in Ireland, in West Cork so we are not new to the HomeAway/VRBO family. In fact we are premier members there and look forward to welcoming guests to our DC home.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this Apartment in 1992
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Logan Circle
The original permit for the house was submitted in 1893 by Judge Westel Willoughby. The house was finished in 1897 and the Willoughby family moved in that year. Willoughby was an interesting character and was originally from upstate New York. He put himself through law school by working as a carpenter. He then joined up and fought in the civil war, was injured and returned home and settled in Alexandria, where he later became a Supreme Court Judge. His wife and himself were active in the early Suffrage movement and he was also instrumental in changing the laws following the civil war to allow African Americans testify against Whites in a court of law. His love of carpentry shows throughout the house and we have restored many of the original details. The house itself has a varied history and was home to many notable figures following Westel Willoughby . The home became a little shabby after 1968, but was given a small facelift in the early 90's and maintained well until we decided to move back and gutted it! So if you like the feel and character of an historic property and neighbourhood, but enjoy the comforts of modern living and the convenient location . Then look no further !

Very nice, great location!
Very nice stay and nice property. Location was perfect (I attended conference at D.C. Convention Center which was short walk from property). Very easy to communicate with property owner who replied promptly to answer questions. Highly recommend this property!
Beautiful property, perfect location and wonderful owners. Everything just so!
It was lovely having you both and we really hope to see you again in the future! Bring the twins next time..
We have stayed in many VRBO's all over the world, always no less than 5 star. This 5 star apartment exceeded our expectations. Extremely clean, well-appointed, and in a perfect location. We found the owners, Maryanne and Jeff, to be excellent and responsive hosts. Although in a quiet and charming neighborhood, easy walking distance for grocery shopping and great restaurants! We were only here for three days, but definitely hope to come back for longer next trip to DC!
Thank you for taking the time Rene. Makes us very happy to know you had such a good time. We love our neighbourhood and it gives us great pleasure to know our guests do too.
Looking forward to hosting you again when you decide to come back to visit!
All the very best,
Marianne and Jeff
Awesome rental in Logan circle!
My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights while we visited DC for sightseeing and college tours. It was perfect! Great space in a great location, we could not have been happier with our stay. And the bottle of bubbly and snacks that awaited us at checkin were an added bonus. Would definitely stay here again our next time in DC!
Thank you so much for your review Marguerite. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay and that everything went well during your stay.
Enjoy your summer and maybe see you next time you're in DC!

The location is perfectly situated on 12th Street, between P and Rhode Island Avenue. It overlooks Logan Circle to the front and 11th Street to the back. Steps to restaurants and theatre, music venues, galleries, bars and shopping. It's also only a few minutes walk to the Convention Centre and China Town with City Centre and Blagden Alley nestled between both - visitors can enjoy the many faces that DC has to offer. The Mall,Memorials and Museums takes approximately fifteen minutes to walk. While 14th Street and Shaw are practically on your doorstep.
