Overview

Photos and Description of this Northwest Washington holiday apartment

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!

Good value for two people

  • 4 of 5

This basement apartment was clean and attractive. It was convenient for sightseeing trips but had a homey, neighborhood vibe. Austin was very responsive . We enjoyed breakfast at the charming Big Bear Café. The queen bed was very comfy. However, the air mattress deflated quickly and the fold out couch was rickety. I would say this is more appropriate for two people until there are additional comfortable sleeping accommodations.

Very happy with our accommodation.

  • 4 of 5

The property was in an interesting area. Close to transport and only 3 stops by metro to the Smithsonian. The apartment was small but very adequate for two. A reasonable living area and good kitchen and fittings.

Comfortable and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is clean and quiet. It is a few blocks from the Metro and restaurants but if you like to walk some that is not a problem. The VRBO pictures are a bit deceiving. This is a basement apartment and not as bright as the pics. There are, however, lots of lights.

The bathroom and bedroom alcove ceilings are low. If you're over 6 ft. you'll have to stoop.

The kitchen is well furnished with a lot of extras in case you cook (we didn't). The bedding is good and the TV excellent (but there must be a way to control it with one remote).

We enjoyed our stay and thought the price was reasonable (for DC).

Great value for the tourist.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great deal for our visit to DC. The appt. was clean and had everything that we needed. Very convenient to get to the Metro and a nice walk to get there. Austin was very helpful and answered any question that we had. After a busy day day of site seeing, it was nice to go back to this cozy little appt. We would stay here again.
