Fully Furnished English Basement apartment recently renovated with great amenities. Large 1BR, 1BA in Historical Woodley Park area.
Woodley Park has one of the best locations in Washington D.C. Just steps from the Woodley Park-Zoo Metro station and a short walk from Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan, this Washington DC address is incredibly convenient to all of the city's museums, art galleries, embassies and universities.
Woodley Park is a beautiful, safe, historic neighborhood located in the heart of Washington, D.C. Our English basement apartment is located in a beautiful downtown neighborhood which has a lovely combination of quiet residential streets and downtown conveniences, offering our guests a selection of excellent local restaurants for lunch or dinner, pubs and diners for live music or a late-night snack, and gorgeous residential streets for a morning or evening run or walk.
Further Details: Run through the National Zoo (opens at 6:00 AM); run along Massachusetts Avenue and admire the architecture of many of the foreign embassies; head into Rock Creek Park and jog all the way to the National Mall; or stroll the beautiful grounds of the Washington National Cathedral. All four of these beautiful destinations are within blocks of our front door.
Dining Options Galore -- There are many excellent restaurants and sidewalk cafes close to our home. Within blocks towards the Metro station, your choices include American, Italian, Indian, Lebanese, Pan-Asian (great Sushi!) and Afghan. Or walk to Cleveland Park and visit our favorite Italian restaurant. Or if you prefer a traditional old fashion Steakhouse, Indian, Italian, or Mexican, they are in the same area. Take a short walk down Connecticut Avenue toward Dupont Circle and you will find the Russia House and many other ethnic restaurants along Dupont Circle as well as in Adams Morgan.

About Anil Kapur
A couple who has lived in this wonderful historic and safe neighborhood for about 30 years.

Why Anil Kapur chose Woodley Park
This is our primary place of residence. We recently thought we would rent our basement apartment to vacationers on a short term basis.

The location was very accessible via public transportation (a few blocks from a metro station). The owner, was very responsive and communicated well before and during my stay. The apartment is very roomy, nicely done, and well-maintained. Some extra accoutrements made it an even more convenient and enjoyable stay (some modest food stuffs). It certainly had all the comforts of home. I would certainly seek out this property again if I'm traveling in the area and would absolutely recommend it to others.
Thank you Eric for your kind words for your stay with us. Hope to see you again in the near future. Anil
Perfect apartment for a few days in DC
This was my second time staying now. The location is a short walk to the Omni Shoreham conference center, as well as the Zoo. There are some trails for running close by. It was nice to have a kitchen and laundry for a longer stay. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfortable.
Lovely place and beautifully appointed
Perfect for a few days or much more. Lovely use of space and everything you need for making a home away from home. We loved walking in the zoo in the morning before the grandchildren were about. Easy metro (Red LIne) access to DC or Bethesda and everywhere in between.
Perfect location, great neighbourhood
Stayed here while attending a conference at the Omni Shoreham. It was wonderful! Spacious and well appointed, within easy walking distance to the Woodley Park metro, zoo, and Rock Creek Park. I'll definitely stay again next time I'm in the area.
Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed having you as a guest. Come again!!
Quiet, private, close to public transportation, spacey.
Title says it all. I can highly recommend this accommodation.
Hello Ilja: It was so nice to meet you and your wife this past fall when you were visiting the Nation's capital. Hope to see you again. Regards, Anil & Martha
Perfect location. Perfect house for a couple. Great hosts- very engaging.
Location is 3 subway stops from Washington Mall where you have access to it all.
Within walking distance to the National Zoo and multiple restaurants, convenience stores, liquor, gas stations and fast foods. Beautiful area to walk day or night and feel very safe.
Anil and his lovely wife are very engaging and more than helpful to offer suggestions of any kind. The house was bright for a basement and came fully equipped with everything you need. They even left a lovely starter kit with foods, condiments and coffee. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a gorgeous stand up marble shower with lots of hot water. There is a washer and dryer for your use which came in very handy.
We would highly recommend this unit for your Washington stay. Anil was quick to reply to all emails and provided very detailed directions to get there. He was superb. Thanks so much Anil.
