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.

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.

Best VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5

Most hospitable VRBO folks ever and a wonderful home-away-from home! We walked into this prime location apartment to find coffee, a dozen eggs, loaf of bread, yogurts, bananas, half-gallon of milk, butter, and basic condiments as well. The apartment is beautifully furnished and even has books, cds, maps and pamphlets about area sites to see, plenty of hangers and closet/drawer space, wonderful rain shower, newer appliances including a good-sized stacked washer and dryer, coffee grinder, toaster and toaster oven, microwave ,and even a new slow-cooker! Lovely dishes and plenty of glassware too! We stayed a full month and basically made use of everything but the slow-cooker!

Location is fabulous. Many wonderful restaurants within easy walking distance: Lebanese Taverna, District Cafe our favorites and the wonderful New Heights for a more upscale dinner. Chains also available.

If you’re attending a convention at the Omni Shoreham or Wardman Park Marriott - they are both a 5-minute walk.

National Zoo (it’s free) is a short walk - I went 7 times! - a great place for your morning jog! Woodland Park Zoo-Adams Morgan metro stop is a 5 minute walk which means everything metro-reachable from the many Smithsonian venues (all free) to Georgetown and Bethesda are all easy to get to. If you’re a “senior”, be sure to go to the Metro Center stop and pick up a senior metro card (discount every time you ride) - costs $2 and you’ll definitely save that - DC residency NOT required but you will need a photo ID to prove age.

Cannot speak highly enough about this VRBO and Anil’s hospitality!!! We will definitely stay here next time we return to DC!! Best VRBO ever!

Perfect apartment for a few days in DC

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying now. The location is a short walk to the Omni Shoreham conference center, as well as the Zoo. There are some trails for running close by. It was nice to have a kitchen and laundry for a longer stay. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfortable.

Lovely place and beautifully appointed

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a few days or much more. Lovely use of space and everything you need for making a home away from home. We loved walking in the zoo in the morning before the grandchildren were about. Easy metro (Red LIne) access to DC or Bethesda and everywhere in between.

Perfect location, great neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

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.
