About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

In the trendiest, artsy section of Washington DC, Dupont Circle - example of Pierre L'Enfant's vision for the city, great avenues radiating off small parks like spokes on a wheel, we offer the best value in furnished apartments, truly a home away from home: just bring your clothes.

We offer luxury furnished apartment with availability throughout the year.

This one bedroom apartment with one bathroom on the third floor of historic Art Deco building is steps from world class restaurants, avant-garde theaters, trendy cafes and the best shopping this city has to offer. The apartment is decorated with passion and attention to detail: classic modern furniture, color coordinated organic sheets, rugs, cotton linens, kitchen and bath ware.

The building features outdoor seating patio, washer and dryer (shared) and close proximity to Metro only block and a half away.

Garage parking is available near our unit for $20 to $30 a day.

Street parking is by permit only between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. We can get visitor's parking pass for you from a local police station for $40 for the stay, and you can park, day and night, on the street. The parking pass is for zone 1, so any street marked zone 1 on the signs is fine (quite a large area). Please note that during the season the streets get cleaned -please read signs clearly and visibly posted on each street when you must move your car for street cleaning.

Keywords: Beautiful, sunny, bright and spacious one bedroom in the heart of everything.

What makes this condo unique

From our apartment in the heart of Dupont Circle the access to all the tourist attractions, world famous restaurants, great bars and the biggest selection of privately owned galleries is just steps away. The metro stop is only a block and a half away, next to Starbucks. The 14 Street buses run directly downtown from our bus station at the end of the block; every two minutes during rush hour and every six minutes other times. The White house, The Mall and The Smithsonian Museums are less than a mile away; about fifteen minute walk or few metro stops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Eva,

a home away from home is a blessing in a unique yet familiar way. For one week we were Washingtonians, enjoying the vibrant spirit of this city.

Thanks for such a cozy and clean flat, we loved it.

As they say in our country:

donde tengo el corazón, tengo mi casa.

And our hearts were in T St corner with 14th.

Gracias Eva

Loved location and host!

  • 5 of 5

Eva went above and beyond to accommodate our last minute needs for our 2 year old. The location is right next to the nightlife in DC these days, but even on Halloween weekend, it was quiet and safe. There is a variety of great food options within a few blocks. Close enough to all DC has to offer. The place had everything we needed. It allowed us to have a nice vacation in dc. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Overall the stay was good. The only complaint was the hallways smelled. My daughter has allergys, so had to use her inhalor more. The apartment was very nice. Didn't smell. They could put better shades up in the bathroom. It looked like it had mold on the bottom of the shade. The toilet leaked at the base and she had someone fix it right away. The steps were kind of bad for me as I have artheritis in knees. But we knew there was steps. Other wise we had a great time in D.C and hope to come again!!!!!! The property was clean. We didn't really do anything near the property. Although we did do a little shopping at Trader Joes. I would recommend the place to younger people. Alice

What an Incredible Sanctuary in a Bustling, Lively Part of D.C.!

  • 5 of 5

The unit I stayed in was upstairs and in back...close to a lively street, but conveniently distanced, to that it was surprisingly quiet and peaceful. I loved the decor...I'm not enough of an interior designer to tell you whether it was Art Deco or Retro-Modern, but it felt beautiful, clear, and uncluttered. I very much appreciated the artwork, too...such a beautiful black and white photo from Prague in winter, which I later learned was actually taken by the owner herself! Clearly, this is an apartment with an eye for aesthetics and artistry...and on a practical level, I enjoyed the gas range and was delighted to see that the kitchen was well-stocked for people who actually like to COOK rather than endlessly waiting in lines and blowing large sums of cash by eating out 3 times per day in DC.

I liked the bath tub...great place to relax on a winter's afternoon. Bed was super-comfy and most enjoyed. And one thing I most appreciated about this property was that I could walk outside and immediately be in the middle of a bustling city with fun cafes and places to have a glass of wine out with friends...and still have the peace and quiet of my sanctuary at home--away from home.

Thank you! I hope to come back soon, and would recommend this place to anyone who asks for a great place to stay in DC.

Great place to stay and good location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a business trip to try something different. This property made it feel like I lived in the neighborhood. It was cozy and had everything I needed. I enjoyed the fact that it was close to metro, trader joes and restaurants.

The apartment was clean and had all of the amenities. The only negative was DIrectTv which did not work very well and a number of channels could not be accessed.

I will definitely look at other properties for my next trip to DC.
