LOCATION! DOWNTOWN FLAT IN AN 1898 BROWNSTONE. WALK TO METRO AND ENTERTAINMENT!

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Downtown - Washington DC - Historic District Flat

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Unit in Historic Downtown Neighborhood, 4 Blocks to Subway

You'll love this brand new ground floor apartment. Recently remodeled by its architect and interior designer owners, it is perfect for families or two couples. Located in an historic district right downtown, anything you could want is minutes away. There is a Metro (subway) station just four blocks down the street. Easy access to the monuments and Mall, Capitol Hill, China Town, the Central Business District - you name it.

Our neighborhood has many trendy restaurants, bars and coffee houses all within a couple blocks walk. There are a few 'city sized' grocery stores and organic markets within a couple blocks. Let us know what you are looking for and we can help point you in the right direction! There is the quaint Anna Cooper Circle at the end of our street (perfect for reading with a cup of coffee) as well as a large park with a playground and separate dog section just a block away. The swings are a hit with our kiddo. The apartment is brand new down to the studs. HVAC system and all appliances are top notch. It is comfortably furnished with stylish Mid-Century and contemporary furniture, but is still very child friendly (we have a toddler so we know :-) All of the linens and bedding are of the type we would use ourselves - we think you will enjoy. Cable TV and high speed Wifi are included. While the apartment is well constructed and there is insulation in the ceiling, like in all garden level apartments you may occasionally hear footsteps or noise from the unit above. There is a strict quiet policy for both units between 11pm and 7am to avoid disturbances. If there is ever a problem please notify us immediately.

The apartment's kitchen is well equipped and if there is anything you need that is not there, please ask. We live a short distance away and can be easily reached when needed. For larger groups, the upstairs unit is also available on Homeaway / VRBO.

I can help you get a visitor's parking pass. Please inquire!

About Kevin

I am a part-time architect and full-time Dad. We travel a lot (our son took 16 airplane flights in his first year!) and know what we like and dislike about the rentals we have visited over the years. We hope to treat you to the kind of rental experience we would enjoy.

Kevin purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Kevin chose Downtown - Washington DC

I used to come to this unique neighborhood 15 years ago when I first to moved to DC (fresh out of school) and dream of one day owning one of these beautiful Victorian brownstones. I always knew I would live here some day.

Very nice home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed the apartment. Loved the hooks everywhere! We felt like we were coming home every night. Nicely furnished, well equipped and fairly quiet. Only comment, not complaint is the shower is tiny. Will stay again when in the DC area and will recommend to friends.

A great option for seniors

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed here for almost a week. We had a very nice time. The apartment was handsome and all of the things we needed were there. We did suggest a channel guide for the TV to the owners as we think that would be helpful. We were on the go every day to museums and monuments. You could really spend two weeks here if you are into that type of thing. It was wonderful to have a place to rest in the evenings with a full living room unlike a hotel. We think the price was a bargain for the amount you get. We met a nice family from Georgia that was renting the upstairs unit and joined them for lunch at Shaw Tavern one day. If we come back we hope we can book this apartment again.

A quiet, cozy place in the middle of the action

  • 5 out of 5
I was so happy to find this apartment. It was a wonderful, affordable stay. Well furnished, fairly new and everything was well ordered. I like the décor too - which was a plus :) The bedroom is towards the back of the unit, away from the street, so there was zero street noise at night. Happy we stayed.

A classy end to our summer :)

  • 5 out of 5
This was the best place to stay! We are also VRBO owners and appreciate how well maintained this apartment is. Nothing was broken, it was spotless clean and we kept the airconditioning set to an icey 72 degrees while it was in the 90s outside. The owners (we mostly emailed / texted with Kevin but met Jeff in person while he was pulling weeds in the front yard) were very nice and AVAILABLE. They answered emails, showed me how to set up uber on my phone and left us a very nice welcome note. It is plain that they care about the condo and their guest whcih was refreshing.
We enjoyed our stay and the location very much. I recommend Red Hen for a lovely dinner (Kevin had it highlighted in the Yelp reviews link he sent us with our arrival package).

Good location, but some downfalls.

  • 3 out of 5
Beautiful historical building with quaint apartment in basement. Comfortably furnished. Basics included for cooking breakfast (coffee pot, toaster, pan), which we did daily. Close to metro and used it daily, too. Close to Bloomingdale Area and we ate at three wonderful spots; The Red Hen, Boundary Stone, and Ario. Would recommend all. Close to Dunkin' Donuts. Nice to have washer and dryer on hand since it was very humid and over 90 degrees each day. Air conditioner struggled to keep us cool. We felt safe in the neighborhood, even walking back from nighttime monument tour at midnight. The reason I am listing as three stars is only because of the noise from the owners (?). The first night, a work night, we slept fine. The second night was Friday and the noise was right above our bed. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, it was the weekend and they may have had visitors, even though it sounded as if they were doing a renovation! We were awake until 0500. Saturday night, we were hopeful, but the constant pounding and scuffing kept us up until past 0200. So, if the night life is part of your DC visit, this is the place to stay. If you are touring all day and exhausted and just want to sleep at 2200, be cautious. I did not call Kevin because I was unsure if it was the owners or the neighbors.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry you did not contact me immediately Margie. I believe I could have resolved this and wish I had the opportunity to. The upstairs unit is also a rental on VRBO / Homeaway. As in your rental agreement - their rental agreement contains a very strict quite policy form 11pm to 7am. I am sorry if the family upstairs disturbed you, but in speaking with them after your stay when I saw your review the parents had no idea their college aged kids were creating such a ruckus downstairs (and their kids dispute that they were). If they had been told they say they certainly would have fixed the problem. We collect a substantial security deposit for the upstairs unit and receiving it back is contingent on observing our quiet policy. In one and a half years of renting as a vacation rental this is our first negative review and it makes me sad. Before you booked when you asked if it was "absolutely silent" I was honest with you and told you no apartment in a multi-unit building in an urban area could claim to be 100% quiet and if you needed that we would understand you selecting another place to stay. I try very hard to make this apartment the type that my small family enjoys when we travel and I think the previous 14 wonderful reviews we have received demonstrate that. Again, I am sorry your stay was less than ideal and wish I would have been given the chance to fix it - I have been trying to reach you at the contact info you left when reserving but have not heard back.

DC Fun!!!!

  • 4 out of 5
My 15 year old son and I stayed in the flat for our End of Summer Getaway!!! The flat was in a great location, we parked the van, and used the Metro. The Metro was a quick walk from the flat, and easy to use, they also have a great App for the Metro. The flat was clean and comfortable, however we did not spend much time in it, but the time we did was homey. We were going to bring our bike and didn't, we regret we didn't, it would have been a great way to travel in the Mall area. It was well worth staying in the Mall area and seeing DC and the monuments at night. We enjoyed having lunch at the some of DC Food Trucks, if you can find it Crepes Parfait food truck was wonderful!! The National Park Service has a great App for the Mall, worth the free download. We would have done a Segway tour, but you have to 16, oh well! Next time we will do Segways!!! For me the best part was Arlington Cemetery, we spent the whole day there. Arlington Cemetery also has a great App, you can put in names of graves you would like to see and it takes you around from grave to grave. it truly was a moving experience to see so many American Heroes!!!
