About the property

Town Home, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

We have a 4 nights minimum but if your desired dates are fewer but they fall within 2 reservations or right before/after another reservation please let us know and we are happy to book your reservation.


The location is very convenient and close to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center which is located above the Mount Vernon Metro station. The Shaw Metro station is 3 blocks to the apartment. The largest grocery store in DC (Giant Foods) is about a 10 minute walk right on P and 8th streets. This house comes with ample parking space and huge front yard.

The House:

This is a large house with 4 bedrooms, and 3 full bathrooms.

This house has a commercial kitchen with high end stainless steel appliances, a large dining room, a recreation room and a very comfortable living room. This house is newly renovated and has an open floor plan.

When you open the front door you will see how spacious and grand this house really is. The plaster molding combined with very high ceilings give the house a special ambiance where the living room is only a third of the space. There is a LED Smart TV with HBO, Netflix and other apps plus a 3D Blue-ray, DVD player with smart apps in the living room. We have WIFI and Cable TV included in the package.

On the ground/main floor, you will find a living room, recreation room (different a seating arrangement than the living room), dining room, full bath with a shower, and commercial kitchen. The dining room can easily seat 14 people. The commercial kitchen has a commercial range, refrigerator, sink and hood and looks into the dining room. There is also a stacked washer and dryer in the kitchen.

When you walk up the stairs to the second floor, you will first see two bedrooms. Both of these bedrooms have king beds and a wardrobe + chest of drawers in each. The upstairs floor has a balcony connecting these two bedrooms to the opposite side of the house. Once you cross the balcony you will find the second bathroom with a shower, the third bedroom with a closet + chest of drawers, and the biggest bathroom in the house, complete with double sinks, a Jacuzzi, and a shower. Finally, at the very end of the hallway there is the last bedroom which has a king bed with a wardrobe + chest of drawers.

***Please note that there is a one bedroom/1 bathroom basement apartment with its own kitchen and a full bath which is rented separately (not included in this rental) but could be rented together with the upstairs unit adding to the capacity of the house.****

About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own (not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle (he thinks he is a giant).

We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc.

There isn't any city that offers so much!

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and we really enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this house in 2012

Why Allen chose U Street Corridor (Shaw)

This is a unique house. At one point it was an art gallery and exhibit house. Huge ceilings and wide open living room, kitchen and dining room makes this house quite unique. Not to mention the huge side yard.

What makes this house unique

This house is located in a walking distance to the DC convention center downtown in one direction and a 25 minutes walk to the Capitol building. There are bus stops, bike shares and Zipcars located nearby not to mention the many restaurants and bars and the DC's largest grocery store within a few blocks radius.

The house was close to the Metro and the airport. We had plenty of space & everything we needed.

The only downside would be the noise from maybe ear plugs😄

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Overall this house was in a great location and had plenty of room. The kitchen was relatively well outfitted (needs at least one more large saute pan and a lot more drinking glasses, but that is easily fixed) and we loved the large dining table. We had 5 senior citizens, 2 kids and my husband and I and the house fit just fine. One note for those with seniors - there are lots of steps both big and small in the house. The grocery store 3 blocks away is HUGE and had everything we could possible need to make dinner every night and a Thanksgiving meal. Allen was responsive to texts and was as nice as could be.

Just a few notes for anyone for whom these details matter: 1) if you have kids sleeping in the 2nd living space like we did, you end up with less lounging space than you might like for 9 people, 2) there is just one TV in the living room, 3) if cracks/holes in the walls/ceiling, poorly done paint jobs, etc. bother you, this is not the place for you, 4) its about a 15 minute walk to the train station with older folks (the bus right outside the door is nice to have and we had no problem getting uber drivers).

Overall a good place to stay to explore DC!

The location and accommodations were great for our needs (13 people).

  • 4 of 5

We had a small issue with pull out bed but Allen fixed it the very next day. Grocery store is within walking distance and owner provided shopping cart with wheels which was very convenient. We also appreciated the parking for two vehicles. Note the pull out beds can really only accommodate 1 person each due to the type of sofa bed it is.
