Why Daniel Maiello chose Columbia Heights

This apartment is one block from the Metro on a lovely tree-lined block with immediate access to restaurants, shopping and grocery. All of Washington's most visited and stunning sites are on the Metro line within just a few short stops from the stop next to the house.

Columbia Heights is a vibrant, diverse neighborhood that has an eclectic mix of residents of many ages, cultures, and income levels. It boasts a beautiful mix of turn of the century & 1920’s architecture as well as a mix of big box shopping & national restaurant chains, as well as independent, small restaurants and a very close proximity to DC’s other well-known, popular neighborhoods via, Metro, taxi, bus or by foot. At this point, the mixture of residents is one of the most diverse anywhere in the city.

What makes this apartment unique

While the area’s main drag is home to Target, Best Buy, Panera, Starbucks, and Chipotle, the neighborhood streets are dotted with smaller, independently-owned establishments, like The Heights, a neighborhood American bistro, the Vietnamese restaurant Pho 14, Sticky Fingers vegan bakery, and Room 11 wine bar.

Also, 11th Street, a quiet cousin to 14th Street that was recently introduced to readers of The New York Times as “Washington’s hippest new strip” is home to a number of businesses that are distinctly more local and quirky than those on the area’s main drag. There is the massively popular Wonderland bar, Red Rocks Pizzeria, Meridian Pint, Columbia Heights Coffee, and Bloombars, a free and funky performance space. The owner of Tryst, an ever-crowded coffee shop in Adams Morgan, is also planning on opening a diner/bar/coffee shop on the ground floor of 1020 Monroe Street in the next few weeks.

Columbia Heights is a public transportation mecca. The Metro station is on the Green Line, with the major transfer stop Gallery Place only eight minutes away. Buses running north and south along 14th Street and 16th Street are some of the city’s busiest, and a Circluator bus runs east and west.

Driving in the city is a little less convenient, mostly because parking—particularly close to 14th Street—has gotten tougher and tougher. But the neighborhood is close to major city arteries like 16th Street, Rock Creek Parkway, Rhode Island Avenue (Route 1), and New York Avenue (Route 50). Major Virginia highways like I-66 and the George Washington Parkway are a little farther. There is secure, garage parking available for $20 a day located at the Target down the street. I can give you the pass if you choose to park there.

Columbia Heights is one of those rare DC neighborhoods where people of all races, ages, and socioeconomic classes share space, and to many, that - not the revitalized commercial strip - is where its charm lies.

Awesome apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet apartment is in a great location, within one block of the metro and close to everything you will need to enjoy your stay in D.C. My daughter and I visited D.C. for 4 days. I have been to the city before but this is the first time we tried a rental. I was a wonderful experience. Daniel was very nice and getting situated was easy. There are many restaurants close by and we were able to pick up some groceries too. Access to the Metro was one block away and we were easily able to visit everything we wanted to including attending a Nats game. The apartment was spotless and just as portrayed in the photos. The artwork in the apartment was especially nice. I would definitely recommend this location and would like to visit again.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very nice. It also was very conveniently located to metro. For someone not used to city life it was a little noisy at night. If you are used to living in the city I am sure you probably wouldn't even notice. With that in mind I would still highly recommend this.

Great place! Great location! Great Landlord!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed in this house for 11 days. It is the best vacation home I have ever stayed at! The unit was spotless when we moved in, the bed was comfortable, and everything worked. The location is perfect and only a very short walk to a subway that can get you about anywhere you want to go. We had no vehicle, and only used Uber a couple of times (to get to Lincoln's cottage and the Frederick Douglas house). With those 2 exceptions we were able to get to all the sites with no problem via subway.

The neighborhood is diverse, safe, and reasonably quiet for an urban location. There are countless restaurants and bars within 1-2 short blocks of the unit, as well as a drug store and grocery. Also, the landlord Danny is extremely responsive and easy to deal with. I cannot speak highly enough of this's as close to perfect as you are going to find!

Awesome landlord, beautifully maintained unit with a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved staying at this unit. It was clean and comfortable. I cooked meals with ease. It was within walking distance to many wonderful eats and a Metro stop was 1 block away, which was quite nice for transversing the city. The landlord, Danny, was very accommodating. Highly recommend.

Attractive, Bright and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be very comfortable and attractive. It is in a residential neighborhood, with lots of stores and good restaurants. It is also close to transportation that brings you to all the important sites. We would stay here again.
