Overview

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.

Lovely Condo in Perfect Spot :-)

  • 5 out of 5
I brought my two grandgirls to this wonderful city to learn and explore. We had a very good time. This owner was very kind to me and helped me understand the city (never had been on a metro before). Me and my girls took the metro trains all over. It is an easy walk from the condo. The kitchen was good and we love to cook together. We also had two nice lunches at places very close. The bed was so good the girls took turns sharing it with me. The couch bed was nice but I was not giving up that bed :-) Wsa very clean to.
We had no complaints. keeping one Abuela and two teens happy - this condo vacation was the best. We are hoping to stay here again

perfect for our small family

  • 5 out of 5
Dad, Mom and two kids in our party. This rental worked out very well for us. From the moment we walked in it not only looked great and just like the photos but it also smelled clean and fresh. I was in town for a conference (location is convenient to the convention center by Metro) and brought the family along to explore DC. My wife felt comfortable walking with the kids to the Metro each day while I was working. It's about a five minute walk with a coffee shop and a few other things along the way (try Uprising Muffin Shop!!). We ended up taking the Metro two stops north the a very large Target grocery store to stock up. It was helpful to our budget eating dinners at home. In hind sight though, the neighborhood market just around the corner from the apartment has all of the things we would have needed and we could have done our shopping for dinners there. We just hadn't visited before we hit the Target. We didn't try many of the neighborhood restaurants but there sure are a lot of them to choose from. We spent every evening at home in the apartment and watched quite a few DVDs that we brought. We could tell there was someone staying in the unit above us but never had any issues or complaints to make about noise. I am a light sleeper and it has been a long time since I lived in an apartment but I was mentally prepared for the worst. I am happy that it was not a problem at all :)
I would also like to note that we were very happy with the items the owners provided with the apartment (plenty of soap, shampoo, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dishsoap, coffee, sugar, creamer, tea bags, etc.etc.). We have been disappointed in past rentals to arrive and find out that there was only a "starter kit" provided and having to furnish all of these things yourself is a total pain. We would recommend this place to friends and if you read this far you should pick it too ;)

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).
