Photos and Description of this Northwest Washington holiday condo

Sophisticated, Asian-Inspired 1 BR 1 BA sleeps 4

Here's what guests have to say about Chez Aimee:

“Chez Aimee was a fantastic place to stay. The location is superb. My wife was in D.C. on business and I spent the days sight-seeing. The metro is close, making the entire city easily accessible, and the neighborhood dining is world-class. I'll never stay or recommend anywhere else in the DC area. Chez Aimee was perfect!' - Jacob, Bloomington, Indiana.

'Yours is simply the most tastefully and lovingly and exquisitely furnished and romantic condo we have ever experienced. The personal attention that you gave us was unique in our experience, and we have stayed in quite a number of B&Bs over the years. Look for us again next year, we are firmly planning on it!' - Claudia Berg, Altdorf, Germany.

Here's what we have to say: Let us help make your Washington, DC experience the best ever.

2 Minute walk to dining and shopping!: Situated in one of the most vibrant quarters of the city, Chez Aimée offers the best of all worlds: walk out the door of your one-bedroom flat in an historic house on a quiet tree-lined street, and you are just one block from all the restaurants, cafes, culture and nightlife of the Adams Morgan neighborhood.

15 Minute ride to Anywhere!: An 8-minute metro ride gets you downtown, where you may either walk to the Mall (museums, monuments, etc.) or change trains. If you change trains, it's another 5 minute ride to the Smithsonian metro station.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am honored to have such a lovely spot to be in while in Washington on business! I thank Amy for sharing this beautiful roost! It's amazing how the universe provides us with just the right thing when we allow it. After too many suite hotel rooms (18 years worth of trips) I opened up to lodging outside the mainstream and found the ideal spot that shares my sensibilities for art, literature, and music. Amy, I hope you will come to my Colorado mountain magic place, "Across the River Retreat" to let me return your gracious hospitality! Namaste! - Mary D

Convenient, comfortable and safe

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is as described, located on the 2nd floor of an older, charming walk-up building. You feel like you're living in the city. The streets are leafy, the early 20th century homes and apartment architecture is beautiful, and the area very convenient. Everything is around the corner and within minutes on foot - coffee shops, health food store, cafes, bars, international restaurants, taxis to flag and the bus. The apartment is fairly well equipped and clean. We walked to the National Mall and all of the amazing museums. A very nice walk through predominantly residential neighbourhoods. It took a leisurely hour. It's about 10 minutes by car. The hosts have been available and very helpful. It's a great place to stay.

Just what we were looking for.

  • 4 of 5

Arrived late at night to a perfectly prepared home. Very clean and organized. Everything we needed was provided and of good quality. The location worked great for us as it is a ten minute walk to good dining and the Metro as well. We can't say enough about this really great condo in a perfect area. Thanks.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and the owner was very accommodating with help on anything that we needed. The condo was located in a great neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, coffee shoppes and grocery stores near by. We really enjoyed our stay and would return in the future.

Great Chez Aimee Condo in Adams Morgan - Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the Chez Aimee condo in Adams Morgan. It was a perfect location for the two of us for a long 4-day weekend. Having never visited the area we were not familiar with Washington DC ... yet the location was a great choice in every way. The condo appeared exactly like the photo's in VRBO ... clean, quiet, quaintly decorated, cozy ... tucked away in a safe urban neighborhood setting that provides tourists convenience to great dining, shopping and sight seeing. We quickly felt like locals there! It was like living in DC for 4 days, rather than visiting. It would also work for a small family of 4, as there is living-room sleeping too.

We learned to find local coffee shops, stores, dining in Adams Morgan and easy access to subway access to visit sights in DC (3-4 block walk to subway metro is an easy walk). Literally, you do not need a rental car in this town. Simply taxi, Uber, or subway. Also, the hop on, hop off tourist bus option will take you to all the locations once you subway to DC. Fun to see all the active walkers, runners, and dog walkers. Adams Morgan is a great site to watch people and enjoy days outside.

The owners provided great lockbox directions before we arrived, as well as plenty of sight seeing and direction options in the condo when you arrive. We loved visiting DC, the Adams Morgan area and we would highly recommend this condo to any friends and family. Thank You!

A beautiful, cozy apartment which was the perfect way to end a full day of sightseeing.

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our 3 night stay, including my 2 kids (11 & 14) who were quite comfortable in the pullout queen sofa bed. Aimee clearly cares about her home and her attention to details like good coffee in the kitchen (Starbucks), fluffy towels & a bottle of wine awaiting made her hospitality stand out.

What happy memories we have!
