Overview

About the property

Large efficiency. 1 bed, 1 bath, sleeps up to 2 adults, 4 total.

Nice efficiency apartment in a popular neighborhood. Within walking distance to many restaurants, pubs, and cafes. It is very close to metro - only a 5 minute walk to the Shaw metro stop on the yellow line. Great for a couple, small family, or short-term work assignment. There is a private entrance and it is equipped with a large flat screen tv, that you can watch in bed on lazy days, high speed wireless internet, washer and dryer and full size kitchen.

The apartment includes a guest parking pass that allows you to park on the street for your entire stay.

There is corner market a block away that has essentials, a Giant supermarket a 15 minute walk or a quick ride on the G2 Bus (that picks up at the house). There are three other large supermarkets (Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's) within a 1 mile radius.

Linens, towels, shampoo, dishes, pots, etc. are all provided

This is a completely private apartment on the ground floor of a townhouse on Cooper Circle with natural morning light from the front window and door.

Below is a map of the apartment location with my restaurant recommendations and and the route to the Shaw metro stop: http://goo.gl/maps/3FMk3

About Austin

Former Army officer, attorney and entrepreneur. I've lived in the neighborhood since 2001 and love it.

Austin purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Austin chose Washington DC

The apartment is ideal for people who want to be in a walkable neighborhood, close to metro, but who are on a budget. It's in historic Ledroit Park near U Street and Logan Circle neighborhoods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent stay! The apartment was well equipped, fun location, and close to the metro. Would definitely recommend!

The Property is very convenient to the Capitol.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment met our needs for the weekend. Overall good. The Parking dance was not a great deal of fun, but the parking pass helps tremendously. Kitchen functional, nice having access to laundry and bath ok. Suggest bringing your own soap and shampoo. Much nicer than staying at a hotel and we were able to get to anywhere by car within 20 minutes. We would stay (and will) again.

Comfortable, great location

All was perfect, as advertised. Quiet hip neighborhood of beautiful old homes, leafy streets. Metro is a 10 min walk away. Many great restaurants.

Good space with nice amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This basement apartment was a nice affordable option for a short trip in DC. The shower was always hot with good water pressure, which was very appreciated after a long day of walking around museums and monuments.

As other reviewers mentioned, you can hear water running and people walking upstairs, but honestly it was never for very long and not an issue for us.

We didn't get to explore much of the neighborhood. There's a movie theater within walking distance that was nice and several bars in the area. Felt safe walking to the Metro line. Overall, I'd recommend this rental unit!

Very clean, perfect for what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

Space was exactly as described. The unit was very clean and comfortable. Had all of the basic amenities that added to the stay. Could we hear the people above us...yes. But there is nothing the owner can do when they bust through their door drunk and obnoxious. Austin was very responsive and easy to work with! Nothing more than a text message away. Great location for not being in the heart of the city. Easy Uber rides to anywhere you wanted to go. Would stay here or any of the owners other properties in a heartbeat. Thanks Austin!!

Cozy apartment with easy access to the Mall

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for me and my husband for our week in D.C. Having laundry was a blessing, and we appreciated being able to utilize a kitchen for keeping some snacks in the fridge.

Every morning we would grab a delicious breakfast sandwich at Uprising coffee shop. We highly recommend this!

We also highly recommend a little joint called Ko Chicks. Their wings are fabulous!

Just FYI...you will hear footsteps from the above apartment. This wan't a huge deal except for the first night when we guessed the guests had an early flight and were scurrying back and forth at a very early hour. Otherwise, it wasn't a big deal.

Overall, we loved getting to experience a taste of the neighborhood while we vacationed in the city.
