About The Owner

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean (our mom cleans it, so you know it’s spotless), conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

Why The Owner chose Washington DC

Situated in the heart of the city is the tony neighborhood of DuPont Circle. Located in a section of Washington called 'Old City', DuPont Circle is a traffic circle, neighborhood, and historic district. A number of historic homes can be found throughout the area, including the post-presidential residence of Woodrow Wilson. DuPont Circle is a known destination for fine dining and entertainment.

This cosmopolitan neighborhood includes an eclectic collection of shops and trendy restaurants that draw visitors young and old. Originally populated by Washington's old money and nouveau riche, DuPont Circle is now home to artists, intellectuals, and young professionals. Turn-of-the-century mansions and brownstones—once home to some the city's most prominent families—now house some of the nation's finest art museums, hippest restaurants, quirky shops, and foreign embassies. It is also home to the Phillips Collection, one of the city's foremost art museums featuring paintings by Renoir, Degas, Cezanne, Picasso, and others.

What makes this condo unique

The proximity to the National Mall, White House and all of downtown is just unmatched in this apartment. On the weekend, DuPont Circle has one of the largest organic farmers' markets in the city. This neighborhood is accessible by foot or cab. WalkScore rates our unit and the surrounding neighborhood a walkability rating of 98 out of 100 - so as perfect as one can get. There are two Metro Stations nearby our condo - Dupont Circle which is pretty close as well as U Street. Both within walking distance about 10 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A huge thank you for our wonderful stay at your beautiful apartment. We were very excited about all that Washington offered & hopeful that the apartment & Dupont Circle would be the ideal base. Our expectations were exceeded. The apartment & location were perfect. We immediately felt comfortable & at home, if not trendy in your stylish setting. We not only enjoyed the major Washington sights but also the gentle strolls around Dupont Circle, great restaurants & stunning architecture. For the second week of our holiday we are enjoying another beautiful VRBO property in Oxford, Maryland. All in all the perfect vacation.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at this wonderful condo and loved everything about it. The location is wonderful and close to everything. We found the unit very clean, fresh and almost feeling brand new and even nicer than we saw on the website. The neighborhood is very safe, close to the Smithsonian and all the sights. We walked to two grocery stores around the corner (Whole Foods and Safeway), both of which are very close. The owner gave us great tips on where to go eat and was so nice that we almost felt like having a new friend. Highly recommend to everyone who can get on the calendar as it seems that they book up pretty far in advance.

Perfect location, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our five-night stay at this property in late April. Half our family flew to DC; the other half drove. Having a car in the city was convenient at times, a hassle at other times. During the day we mostly walked or took transit but at night after much of the traffic cleared it was great to drive downtown to the monuments, actually find parking, and walk around at night. The apartment was perfect for two adults and two teen children. The only glitch we had was that the cable was not working at first, but the owner had the problem fixed within a day. It was nice at the end of long days sight-seeing and touring colleges to relax in this lovely home.

Good location, within walking distance to restaurants and grocery stores

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment. Great location. Perfect for a family. We had two teenage kids, so one had to sleep on sofa. Didn't actually pull out the sleeper bed so can't comment on comfort of it.

Owners took the sign off about shoes that others complained about, but we took off shoes anyway.

The place was clean, but I wouldn't say it was ultra clean. For example, their was a lot of dust on grates, fans, and walls. It's like it hasn't been deep cleaned in a bit.

It had everything you would need away from home, plenty of toilet paper and hand soap.

I gave it four stars because it seems to be missing the attention to small details. For example, no place to put your soap in shower, moldy outer shower curtain, no towel racks, toilet paper holder etc. these are small things and wouldn't keep me from coming back to this home.

Thanksgiving celebration

  • 4 of 5

We stayed Thanksgiving week and enjoyed the condo very much. The kitchen was well supplied and there was no problem making an entire Thanksgiving meal. The location of this condo is wonderful. Walking distance to many sights as well as grocery stores and restaurants. It felt like a safe and very clean neighborhood . Our daughter had her car and there was never any problem finding parking. There are two very large skylights directly over the master bed, so it would be advisable to bring a sleep mask unless you like to be awakened very early in a fully bright bedroom. The only disappointment was the linens and/or lack of. The master bed had no fitted sheet and the flat sheet on the bed was too small exposing the stained mattress cover. Also there were pillows without cases. We did have the unfortunate experience of the master toilet leaking and dripping onto the kitchen counter from a lighting fixture, something that could not be fixed during our stay. I would recommend this property.

Beautiful condo; great location

  • 5 of 5

Very few glitches; two problems were quickly taken care of. The second bedroom is a bit small, but we really loved the place and would stay again.
