Overview

About the property

Junior 1 Bedroom Apt / Sleeps 3

Newly renovated, junior 1 bedroom English basement apartment, with 4 full-size windows, offers plenty of natural light. Sleeps 3 adults with a queen bed and twin sofa bed. You'll have a comfortable night's sleep with 500 thread count sheets and tempurpedic pillows. Full bathroom with bathtub and shower. Washer and dryer in unit. Full-size kitchen appliances include refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and iron. Kitchen has granite countertops and is fully furnished with plates, glasses, cookware, utensils, etc. The apartment has all the conveniences of home. For travelers with small children, a highchair and Pack n' Play are available upon request.

The apartment is located just north of downtown, near 2 yellow/green line metro stops—just 3 blocks from Howard University/Shaw metro stop and 4 blocks from the Mt Vernon/Convention Center metro stop. Reagan National Airport is also located on the yellow line, so the commute from the airport is very easy. Washington DC is a very walkable city with good public transportation. You won't need a car while you are here. If you are traveling with a car, there is plenty of street parking available. Street parking is locally zoned, but we will arrange for you to have a parking pass for a $25 fee.

We are walking distance to vibrant nightlife, like the U street corridor, Logan Circle and Chinatown/Gallery Place. Only 3 metro stops to the National Mall and all of the historic monuments. Lots of restaurants within walking distances. 

For extended stays, we will have the apartment cleaned weekly for an additional $50. Nightly rate does not include the Washington DC lodging tax of 14.5%.

We live upstairs and are happy to answer any questions or make recommendations. The apartment has a separate alley entrance, and you will have complete privacy.

About Greg Sitzmann

We moved to DC together in 2005, the year we were married. It was going to be a short-term stay, and here we are eight years later. We absolutely love our city.

Greg Sitzmann purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Greg Sitzmann chose Washington DC

The nice thing about the English basement apartment is that it's only a couple steps below ground. So it really feels more like a first-floor space. The ceilings are high. And the four tall windows let in plenty of natural light.

What makes this apartment unique

Our neighborhood, Shaw, is also called Old City. It has a great neighborhood vibe. Subway stops are convenient. But if you like to walk, it's a beautiful city to see on foot.

Nice clean and comfortable apartment in a pleasant neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Shaw neighborhood while sightseeing in DC. The apartment was just right for our family. Restaurants, a coffee shop, gelato and grocery store were within walking distance. It had a nice kitchen with adequate utensils and cookware to make some simple meals. Thank you, Greg!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Greg's place for a weekend trip to DC. We even met his wife and daughter outside at their place one morning. The apartment is the perfect size and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The full kitchen is awesome and super convenient. Close to the metro and on a quiet street. We'd definitely stay there again! Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!

Great place to stay near the Convention Center.

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from Washington DC after spending 3 days there at a convention. I traveled with a friend and we wanted to be as close to the Convention Center as possible, so the location of the apartment was perfect for us. The apartment itself is very small but more than enough for two people. Everything was extremely clean and up to date. We didn't do any cooking but the kitchen is very modern and well equiped. The bed is comfortable, great shower. Gregory was very accomodating - he let us drop our bags off in the morning way before the check in time and leave them in the house after the check out, which greatly simplified things for us. It was much nicer than staying in a hotel and I recommend the apartment for anyone who is looking for a place to stay in the area.

Although we didn't get to stay overnight as planned, we did get to use the property for the day. It's in a great location, very cute and clean, and the owners are wonderful to work with!
