About the property

1 Bedroom + Sofa Sleeper + Air Mattress + 1.5 Baths + Organic

Elegant 1 bedroom home, with Juliette balcony and driveway parking option. Situated on the 2nd floor, with an emphasis on organic amenities and upscale linens and towels.

Located in one of the most preferred neighborhoods in DC, this spacious DuPont Circle townhouse rests on a quiet tree-lined street and features fine dining in walking distance. The turn-of-the century home is conveniently near Embassy Row, museums and shopping. Even better, nearby salons and bistros abound.

This is one of several units managed by an experienced host who has been awarded Premier Status on VRBO.

The home is renovated and has 1000 square feet of indoor living space, featuring high ceilings, tall windows and original French doors. Enhancing those quarters are two Juliet balconies: just off the kitchen for dining alfresco, and next to the bedroom for morning coffee and quiet conversations outdoors. For extra convenience, high-speed internet is available for guest use.

Comfortable contemporary and antique furnishings are accented by eclectic décor. You’ll find the kitchen well-stocked, including a juicer and Vitamix. The room opens to a private balcony if you prefer taking your meals under the sun.

The spiral staircase leads to a master retreat that is tucked away from the rest of the home. The bedroom is nicely sized and comfortably appointed, the organic mattress topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival.

Complementing the space is a full bathroom, sunroom alcove and another Juliette balcony. Extra privacy can be had if traveling with couples, as the sofa sleeper and half bath on the main level expands the sleeping quarters.

Steps from your front door you will find a corner market and a dry cleaner. Just a few blocks beyond enjoy gourmet restaurants, bistros, theatre, and shopping. After dining, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along Embassy Row with its beautiful mansions.

Minutes away, the subway will transport guests to the most popular sites: the Smithsonian, the Capitol, world renowned monuments and Arlington Cemetery, to name a few. The White House is within walking distance with lovely sites along the way. If traveling with children, so is the zoo.

Cabs, Ubers and bike rental stations are abundant in the area. If you favor your own vehicle, there are two options that can be added to your quote: driveway parking can be made available for up to 2 vehicles, and any number of street parking permits can also be arranged.

What you can expect: It is my aim to provide guests five-star amenities; the same touches that I appreciate when I travel: lodging located in a gorgeous and safe neighborhood, cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable mattresses, high-speed Internet and eclectic decor.

Please Note: I book on a first-come basis, and the furnishings are constantly evolving.

About Gloria

I am a writer who works from home. My husband is a former mayor, and currently, a publisher in Washington, DC. We prefer quiet homes in residential neighborhoods when we travel, and offer ours to like-minded people whenever we're away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I got kudos from my two girlfriends for finding this place. It was perfect. The area was beautiful (and safe), it was hard to believe it was only steps away from resturants, shops, and the metro. The condo was absolutely charming. It was spotless. The kitchen has been updated and had everything we needed. The bed AND air mattress were incredibly comfortable. (We all wrote the name of the air mattress down so we could go home and buy one for OUR guests). Gloria was delightful to work with. (We had one mini-glitch and even though she was out of town, it was addressed immediately). Thanks, Gloria! We would definitely come back to this lovely condo.

Quaint, Charming Vintage Place in a very Quiet and Safe Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful place. We would definitely stay again. We were so happy we chose to stay there instead of across the river. Gloria was an awesome host. She was very helpful and responded to any questions promptly. The place is as described. If driving into the city, pay for the driveway parking. It is worth not having to find street parking or another place to park. The place is an short stroll to Dupont Circle. We read the previous reviews and found them to be helpful. In regards to the stairwell, smaller suitcases would be better than one large one. Don't let it intimidate you. We had no problem going up and down it even after walking the city all day. There are numerous excellent restaurants and bars within walking distance. We enjoyed the Russia House, the Bier Baron Tavern and Larry's Ice Cream & Cupcakes for dessert.

Great location. Quiet, beautiful neighborhood. We would stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

The property is conveniently located to walking or Metro to any or all popular destinations.

The apartment itself is cozy and good for two people. The spiral staircase is a bit precarious especially with large luggage. Watching the street from the balcony was a pleasant way to pass the time.

Gloria was easy and gracious to work with. We would definitely be interested in a return stay.
