Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Cardozo - A1

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3) just remodeled!!!

The best location for sightseeing!

In the trendiest, artsy section of Washington DC, Dupont Circle - example of Pierre L'Enfant's vision for the city, great avenues radiating off small parks like spokes on a wheel, we offer the best value in furnished apartments, truly a home away from home: just bring your clothes.

We offer clean simple and comfortable furnished apartment with availability throughout the year.

This garden level/basement one bedroom apartment with one bathroom on the garden floor of historic Art Deco building is steps from world class restaurants, avant-garde theaters, trendy cafes and the best shopping this city has to offer. The apartment is decorated with passion and attention to detail: simple furniture, color coordinated sheets, rugs, cotton linens, kitchen and bath ware. Please note that this is our least expensive unit because it is in the basement. It has full size windows and it has been remodeled. It is clean, simple and comfortable. The bed in the bedroom is full size and there is a twin size sleeper sofa which folds out.

The building features outdoor seating patio, washer and dryer (shared) and close proximity to Metro only block and a half away.

Garage parking is available near our unit for $20 to $30 a day.

Street parking is by permit only between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. We can get visitor's parking pass for you from a local police station for $40 for the stay, and you can park, day and night, on the street. The parking pass is for zone 1, so any street marked zone 1 on the signs is fine (quite a large area). Please note that during the season the streets get cleaned -please read signs clearly and visibly posted on each street when you must move your car for street cleaning.

About Eva


originally from Prague, Czech Republic, Washington DC has become my second home twelve years ago when I came to study at Georgetown University.

I live in this wonderful city with my two boys Alexander and Christopher, only few blocks from the rental property. We spend every weekend at a museum (Air and Space is the favorite), hiking through Rock Creek Park or on a fifty year old carousel in front of the Smithsonian Gardens and we hope that all our guests enjoy this vibrant city as much as we do.


Eva purchased this condo in 2009

Why Eva chose Washington DC

As a single mom I need to provide for my two boys. I love to travel and so do my kids. Most of the time I travel out of DC and the situation helped me see that just as I love to leave the city and to explore other places, there are people who come to visit DC to spend time with their families. My two boys, my family, are the best critics of any place, as no furnishings are safe from their play and no vase is sacred to them. Our places are luxurious but ready to be used. I understand what most travelers need to feel comfortable since I have traveled extensively around the world to Africa, South and Central America, Asia and Europe . Please come and share your vacation time in our home. I promise that we will do our best to make you feel comfortable.

This is the reason I bought my rental property.

What makes this condo unique

From our apartment in the heart of Dupont Circle the access to all the tourist attractions, world famous restaurants, great bars and the biggest selection of privately owned galleries is just steps away. The metro stop is only a block and a half away, next to Starbucks. The 14 Street buses run directly downtown from our bus station at the end of the block; every two minutes during rush hour and every six minutes other times.

The White house, The Mall and The Smithsonian Museums are less than a mile away; about fifteen minute walk or few metro stops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place - quiet - slept well - relaxing.

Super location - close to good food, drinks, shops, metro + bus.

My daughter and I enjoyed our 4 days in DC - such a great and friendly city - we'll be back in the spring!

Thanks Eva

Clean, Comfortable and Homey

  • 5 of 5

This apartment located in the basement of a cute brownstone building was a great place to be able to come back to after touring D.C. every day. It had everything we needed except a can opener. The kitchen is VERY small but functional and we prepared most of our meals there. The living room and bedroom were small, but comfortable and relaxing. The bathroom was very clean and tub+shower was a good size. The commode was a bit close to the tub so if you are very tall, it may be tight. Eva was very pleasant and attentive and got us a parking pass. There is an inviting looking porch we would have liked to use but it rained every evening so we weren't able to. We would stay here again.

Fantastic stay in Washington DC

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in the best location ever. Right at 14th Street so that you can walk to the National Mall, bike or bus to it. The neighborhood is lively with lots of great restaurants. Our favorite was Le Diplomate at 14th and Q. Eva, the owner was so easy to work with and answered all of our questions. She went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. I highly recommend her properties. For a larger family you must try her four bedroom historic townhouse. Built in the late 1890's this gorgeous home has beautiful floors, furnishings and a chefs kitchen. When in DC call Eva!

Dupont Circle diamond in the ruff

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment could not be any better. It is in the heart of the bustling Dupont Circle/Logan Circle neighborhoods. If you want a bargain and are not concerned about space or sunlight, this is the place for you. Clean, kept up and comfortable. A perfect place to hang your hat in this wonderful city.

Not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

This was a disappointing property. It is certainly not as advertised - this is not a 'garden floor' property, which sounds rather inviting. In fact, you descend down an unpleasant smelling corridor to the dark, neglected basement of the building past a pile of junked computers etc. The property is far smaller than the pictures make it appear, there is almost no natural light, the 'patio' is a small area outside which is accessible to the whole building, which merely gives a lack of privacy to the person staying in this apartment since the covering on the bathroom window is not integral. It was impossible to take a shower without worrying that I was be visible to people on the patio (not too much of a problem for me in March, but a real problem in the summer months I am sure). The bathroom was cold as the heater didn't work. Even worse the hot water tap did not work throughout my stay, despite appeals to Eva to have it mended. The old fridge in the kitchen makes a ridiculously loud noise and was impossible to shut out while sitting in the living space as the whole space is too small to allow for a door between the kitchen and the lounge. To top it off, the entire plumbing of the building seems to run down the inside of the walls in this apartment and for hours on end one could hear everyone else taking their showers and baths....The apartment is in a good location but I would advise the owner to be more honest about the property to avoid this type of disappointment.

Clean, Beautiful, and Inviting

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great stay in D.C., largely due to this apartment! Very clean and comfortable. Perfect size for the two of us.

Our favorite part of the apartment is the location is on 14th and T. It's within easy walking distance from a lot of great restaurants, including the famous Ben's Chili (yum!). If you need any groceries, Trader Joe's is just around the corner. Our only complaint with the city is that D.C. doesn't have great drip coffee. Luckily, this apartment has a large coffee maker. :)

Stay here! You won't regret it!

Very convenient to Hilton

  • 4 of 5

the room was nice and well furnished. Location was great; 15 min walk to the Hilton, close to subway and bus lines, lots of cabs nearby as well. The taqueria and coffee shop downstairs were both excellent. Only complaint was that the room smelled heavily of mothballs, causing me to leave a window open the whole time.
