About Penny Karas
Penny is a pastry chef and Bill is an architect (he designed the apartment!) We love experiencing life like locals when we travel, and want to provide that same experience for guests in our rental. Our interests: design, history, travel, food & wine, health & fitness, urban adventures, the beach, the mountains, the city, the country!
Penny Karas purchased this Apartment in 1993
Why Penny Karas chose Logan Circle
Located in DC's historic Logan Circle, we literally own a piece of the Victorian-period history of our nation's capital. As modern-day pioneers in DC's Logan Circle neighborhood, this has been our home for almost three decades and we never plan to leave!
What makes this Apartment unique
We have seen the neighborhood through bad times and good, and its recent renaissance as a food, entertainment, and shopping destination, along with its very central location, makes it a fabulous place to live and to visit. Our home is on a quiet, leafy block, but just a stone's throw to the amazing energy of 14th and U Streets and their fabulous restaurants, cafes, theaters, bars, galleries and shopping. Along with the striking architecture of the Victorian-era neighborhood and its proximity to major sights like the National Mall, the White House and the Convention Center, we feel this makes our home THE PLACE to stay for your perfect trip, business or pleasure, in the nation's capital. We encourage you to make yourself completely at home in the apartment. You won't find such an experience in a hotel. And it's more affordable too!

This charming space in a perfect location was quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed the lovely apartment and neighborhood! Thanks Penny!
Great property, was just as it was listed!
We had a very enjoyable week in DC while staying at this property. The property itself had everything we needed. We were within walking distance to all the DC tourist attractions we came to see. The Logan Circle area was also a great place to hang out at night will great bars and restaurants. Peggy the owner knows how to set up a comfortable, professional vrbo.
Clean apartment with extra towels, bath products, snacks. Excellent location...felt safe with the security system. Easy to check in and check out. Street parking but parking pass provided and not difficult to use. Could hear footsteps from upstairs at evening hours but not a big deal. Would definitely stay here again.
Cherry Blossom Festival
Beautiful location and a very well appointed, secure and clean unit. The extra amenities within the unit made us feel welcome and even more at home. We would stay here again without question!
The apartment is in a great location and Penny was such a wonderful host!
Very cozy, well arranged inviting apartment.
We definitely felt welcomed as soon as we arrived. Anything that you would possibly need has been provided and this too makes your stay all the more comfortable. There were a variety of snacks with both chilled and room temperature water waiting for us. The apartment has every amenity you could think of and then some. I love that shoes stay at the door because this is something I practice at home which allows outside dirt to stay outside. The modern updates are lovely. There is plenty of space for your things and to move around.
We found it to be especially clean and neat. The apartment is on a very quiet street near lots of restaurants and shops. Wonderful Weekend Hideaway!
DC's historic Logan Circle neighborhood is known for its architecture, with Victorian gems juxtaposed against modern, sophisticated cafes, restaurants, and trendy boutiques. We believe we are on the best block in DC! It is leafy and quiet, only steps from historic Logan Circle park (where you can relax, picnic, or even join in a game of pickup bocce!) You are within a 5-10 minute walk to a Whole Foods market, Giant supermarket, and Trader Joe's. We are steps from 14th Street and U Street corridors, and a short walk to Dupont to the west, along with the trendy Shaw neighborhood to the east, with all the restaurants, cafes and nightlife they have to offer. It is a quick stroll to the Convention Center, and well located for easy access to the National Mall (20 minutes on foot, quick cab/uber ride, or bus straight down 14th Street.) and the White House (15 minutes on foot) and a lovely springtime stroll beyond that to Washington, DC's spectacular cherry blossom trees!
