Overview

Northwest Washington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Large efficiency. 1 bed, 1 bath, sleeps up to 2 adults, 4 total.

Nice efficiency apartment in a popular neighborhood. Within walking distance to many restaurants, pubs, and cafes. It is very close to metro - only a 5 minute walk to the Shaw metro stop on the yellow line. Great for a couple, small family, or short-term work assignment. There is a private entrance and it is equipped with a large flat screen tv, that you can watch in bed on lazy days, high speed wireless internet, washer and dryer and full size kitchen.

The apartment includes a guest parking pass that allows you to park on the street for your entire stay.

There is corner market a block away that has essentials, a Giant supermarket a 15 minute walk or a quick ride on the G2 Bus (that picks up at the house). There are three other large supermarkets (Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's) within a 1 mile radius.

Linens, towels, shampoo, dishes, pots, etc. are all provided

This is a completely private apartment on the ground floor of a townhouse on Cooper Circle with natural morning light from the front window and door.

About Austin

Former Army officer, attorney and entrepreneur. I've lived in the neighborhood since 2001 and love it.

Austin purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Austin chose Washington DC

The apartment is ideal for people who want to be in a walkable neighborhood, close to metro, but who are on a budget. It's in historic Ledroit Park near U Street and Logan Circle neighborhoods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good value for money

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is situated un the basement of a house. Unfortunately the garbage cans are stored right next to the front door, and the tenants are supposed to bring them to the street, which I do not appreciate.

Otherwise, flat is tidy, with all the necessary amenities. The main drawback is that being in the basement, having people above tends to make the place a bit noisy. You can always hear footsteps, etc. In addition, we were 4 people, and the place is a bit too small. I think that 3 is the maximum number of occupants which can confortably lodge in this flat.

Otherwise, the neighbourhood is quite cool with restaurants, bars, etc. The walk to the metro is quite reasonable as well.

Most of all, the price is reasonable for Washington!

Very well equipped 1 room apartment, ideal for a couple or small family. Metro station easy to reach, lots of helpful information from Austin concerning shopping and restaurants. Thank you for parking permit. We really felt at home, everything we needed was there, had a wonderful stay. We can definitely recommend this accomodation.

Convenient and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for four days at this apartment and were very pleased with it's location and the space itself. We were able to easily walk to the metro and to some great restaurants in the neighborhood and felt completely safe. Parking was very convenient with spaces available right in front of the home. The apartment was neat and clean with comfortable beds and pillows. The home and neighborhood was quiet. I would highly recommend this home, unless you are tall, as this is a basement apartment with low ceilings.

Comfy bed, good location, clean and great price

  • 5 of 5

Clean apartment, comfy bed, free parking, good location few blocks from the metro. We did hear footsteps in the apartment above but it was nothing that bothered us at all. If it would have, we would have let the owner know. Ceilings are lower but we were aware of that before hand and it didnt interfere with our stay. Quick trip into downtown DC. We found a good coffee and muffin place called Uprising. We didn't like the Royal. It didn't taste good and they were a little rude. Try the pizza place the owner suggested! It seriously was the best. Next trip to DC we will probably stay at the same place. And the street parking was not hard to figure out at all either. The signs are clearly marked as to which side of the road to park on during their cleaning hours.

Great location with all the essentials

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four was in DC to see all the well-known sights. We drove in from out of town, so having the parking pass was perfect. We left our vehicle and used Uber to get around. The apartment was only a few minutes away from the National Mall, which kept our transportation fees low. I shopped at Giant our first night so I could cook dinners to save money. The kitchen had all the essentials which was really helpful. We did hear the noise of upstairs guests, but never had a problem with it after the "quiet time". The queen bed was comfortable and we slept well. I would, however, only recommend this place for 3, and not additional guests. There wasn't much space for the air mattress we needed for our son, but it was manageable for our length of stay. Overall it was a great experience in a well-equipped apartment with a quiet, convenient location.

Comfy Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this apartment for our first time traveling to DC. We had never rented anyone's place using HomeAway and my husband was very leary about the concept. It worked out wonderfully! The apartment was perfect for our needs. There was a coffee maker which is a must for me; he even had coffee beans and a grinder! The bed exceeded my expectations in comfort; it was just as nice as our bed at home. The bathroom was spotless. Everything was clean and ready for us to use on our arrival. The owner has sent us several suggestions for places to eat and grocery shop while we were there. This was a lifesaver as we ended up arriving much later than we had anticipated and were starving once we were settled. A quick and slightly nerve-racking trip to the grocery store and we were all set. (The way people drive in DC was just plain crazy. Apparently, it is like Italy and the lights and lanes are just suggestions. lol) We fell in love with the food at the Bistro Bohem (a five minute walk from the apartment) and ate their almost every day of our trip. (The pork chops with glazed pears was delicious and the Czech Mule was divine!) The apartment was simple and met our needs. I loved it and would rent it again if I ever go back to DC!

*Thoughts for consideration: My husband and I are both below six feet tall which is good because the ceiling are low. I would not suggest this apartment for people near or over the six foot mark. Also, if your are picky about noise then this might not be the place for you. It definitely sounded like a herd of elephants above us but they were always quite by ten o'clock at night. It didn't bother us at all on our trip. To be clear these are not complaints; just information to consider if you are tall and dislike noise. As you can see, I gave this apartment a 5 star rating so I obviously I loved it!
