About Dara

I am an Executive Director for a microfinance non-profit. I also teach aerobics part-time. I speak French and my 6 year old daughter attends the Lycee Rochambeau French School. My husband is a lobbyist in the Health Care industry. We love traveling internally and enjoy hosting international visitors, especially French speaking and helping them to explore beautiful Washington, DC. We live in the main house above the rental unit.

Dara purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Dara chose Washington DC

The Logan Circle/ U Street neighborhood is one of the most desirable in NW Washington. There are restaurants, bars, shopping, health clubs, all within walking distance. A short metro ride brings you to the major attractions in Washington, including the museums, the Capitol, and the White House.

What makes this apartment unique

Logan Circle is one of the city's most historic neighborhoods.

Very nice and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The location is great, close to restaurants, groceries, and the metro system. The parking pass is a real perk! The place was very clean and cutely decorated. Would definitely stay there again.

A great apartment close to the action

  • 5 of 5

A spacious, well-equipped apartment in a 'happening' area. Despite being a block from restaurants and shopping galore and just two blocks from the Metro, the apartment was the perfect quiet retreat after a day's sightseeing. Hard to beat and I would definitely return.

Lovely place to stay, would stay there in a heart beat

  • 4 of 5

Dara's place was perfect for my husband and myself. This was our first time to DC, so of course we were gone throughout the day. However, walking all day in the humidity , practically 10hours of being out, Dara's little peace of contemporary heaven was what we needed when we arrived home: the A/C, cable TV, music, and everything else you would need in a home. The location was perfect for dining and/or dining out with markets just around the corner. My husband are very light breakfast eaters, so the fact that we could cook a little pleased us. The bed was comfy and luckily she had a firmer pillow in the closet that I usually like to sleep with. We highly recommend Dara's place to stay in.

The only reason we gave it a 4, if we could we'd give it a 4 1/2, rather than a 5, are the steps above us. We could here them only in the early morning, but it didn't bother us one bit. I'd stay there in a heart beat.

Thank you Dara 👏🏾🤗

This apartment was very well located and just as pictured. It is nicely and thoughtfully appointed.

  • 5 of 5

The owners graciously accommodated our requests to adjust check in/check out times due to our travel schedule. Full size appliances, washer and dryer, and ample closet space were delightful (and very clean). The air conditioning kept the apartment comfortable despite the high outside temperature. I look forward to staying here again when next in "the other Washington".
