About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Fully Furnished English Basement apartment recently renovated with great amenities. Large 1BR, 1BA in Historical Woodley Park area.

Woodley Park has one of the best locations in Washington D.C. Just steps from the Woodley Park-Zoo Metro station and a short walk from Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan, this Washington DC address is incredibly convenient to all of the city's museums, art galleries, embassies and universities.

Woodley Park is a beautiful, safe, historic neighborhood located in the heart of Washington, D.C. Our English basement apartment is located in a beautiful downtown neighborhood which has a lovely combination of quiet residential streets and downtown conveniences, offering our guests a selection of excellent local restaurants for lunch or dinner, pubs and diners for live music or a late-night snack, and gorgeous residential streets for a morning or evening run or walk.

Further Details: Run through the National Zoo (opens at 6:00 AM); run along Massachusetts Avenue and admire the architecture of many of the foreign embassies; head into Rock Creek Park and jog all the way to the National Mall; or stroll the beautiful grounds of the Washington National Cathedral. All four of these beautiful destinations are within blocks of our front door.

Dining Options Galore -- There are many excellent restaurants and sidewalk cafes close to our home. Within blocks towards the Metro station, your choices include American, Italian, Indian, Lebanese, Pan-Asian (great Sushi!) and Afghan. Or walk to Cleveland Park and visit our favorite Italian restaurant. Or if you prefer a traditional old fashion Steakhouse, Indian, Italian, or Mexican, they are in the same area. Take a short walk down Connecticut Avenue toward Dupont Circle and you will find the Russia House and many other ethnic restaurants along Dupont Circle as well as in Adams Morgan.

Conference Attendees - Our house is situated one block away from the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel , a couple of blocks from the Omni Shoreham, and a short metro ride to the Walter Washington DC Convention Center. Are you attending a conference at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel or the Omni Shoreham? Disappointed that these large institutions are full for the conference or you prefer your own privacy and personal touch, then we suggest that you book with us.

The Best of All Worlds -- Our incredibly convenient and beautifully renovated apartment offers you self service continental breakfast, a quiet and comfortable room, free high-speed secured internet access, a full menu of available channels on cable TV that can be viewed on an HD flat panel screen, and an I-Pod stand for your use which also includes an AM/FM radio. Bring your laptop and you can work in the quietness of the apartment.

Our apartment offers the perfect combination of old fashioned hospitality and modern technology and amenities.

The large bedroom with a queen size bed and accented brick wall with Japanese doors that separates the living area for personal privacy. The bedroom size is 15 feet x 13 feet which is a little less than 200 square feet. The trim along the walls is accented in wood to It includes closet space and a chest of drawers for your convenience.

The living area includes a sofa, comfortable lounge chair, ottoman and a 42 inch wall mounted fully equipped cable HD TV. The living area size is about 19 feet x 16 feet which is slightly more than 300 square feet.

The kitchen and breakfast area which is a fully functioning and well equipped kitchen has granite counter tops and dish washer. There is a small patio off the kitchen area equipped with lawn chairs. A quiet spot for a cup of coffee in the morning or an evening cocktail.

About Anil Kapur

A couple who has lived in this wonderful historic and safe neighborhood for about 30 years. We are actively involved in various cultural and social activities in the local neighborhood and find the city has a lot to offer.

We love the vicinity and what the city has to offer in terms of its cultural, political and rich ethnic diversity.

Anil Kapur purchased this apartment in 1982

Why Anil Kapur chose Embassy Row

This is our primary place of residence. We recently thought we would rent our basement apartment to vacationers on a short term basis.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

The location was very accessible via public transportation (a few blocks from a metro station). The owner, was very responsive and communicated well before and during my stay. The apartment is very roomy, nicely done, and well-maintained. Some extra accoutrements made it an even more convenient and enjoyable stay (some modest food stuffs). It certainly had all the comforts of home. I would certainly seek out this property again if I'm traveling in the area and would absolutely recommend it to others.

Perfect location, great neighbourhood

Stayed here while attending a conference at the Omni Shoreham. It was wonderful! Spacious and well appointed, within easy walking distance to the Woodley Park metro, zoo, and Rock Creek Park. I'll definitely stay again next time I'm in the area.

Perfect location. Perfect house for a couple. Great hosts- very engaging.

  • 5 of 5

Location is 3 subway stops from Washington Mall where you have access to it all.

Within walking distance to the National Zoo and multiple restaurants, convenience stores, liquor, gas stations and fast foods. Beautiful area to walk day or night and feel very safe.

Anil and his lovely wife are very engaging and more than helpful to offer suggestions of any kind. The house was bright for a basement and came fully equipped with everything you need. They even left a lovely starter kit with foods, condiments and coffee. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a gorgeous stand up marble shower with lots of hot water. There is a washer and dryer for your use which came in very handy.

We would highly recommend this unit for your Washington stay. Anil was quick to reply to all emails and provided very detailed directions to get there. He was superb. Thanks so much Anil.

Amazing location & great owners!

Not only is the location perfect for this home, but the home itself was just beautiful! The owners made sure the space truly feels like home from providing fruit & breakfast items to advice on good places to eat. The area is very safe, close to the zoo & lots of food options. Loved my stay & look forward to visiting again!!

Enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights at the end of March. We were attending a 3 day conference at the Woodley Marriott and took some extra time to tour DC. The apartment was a great place for our needs. It was very quiet, which assured a good night's sleep. We enjoyed having the kitchen to make coffee and continental breakfast, with coffee and breakfast items provided by the owner.

The location is close to restaurants and very convenient to the metro. The owners were very cordial and included a booklet with tips on restaurants, etc. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.
