This wonderful walk up apartment is located on the third floor of a Small Boutique Building. It is a fun alternative to a boring vanilla box hotel room. Well decorated and colorful this apt will be a memorable part of your trip to our Nation’s Capital. New king beds added March of 2016.

The location cannot be beat. One block from the Convention Center and the Metro Train Yellow line make arriving from anywhere in the world as easy as getting off a plane at DCA or even JFK and catching a train into town. It is perfect for the budget shopper who will not compromise on location! You can walk to the White House and the Monuments!

It was recently renovated from stem to stern in the past three years and has central air conditioning. The bedrooms have a KING bed each. If you have extra travelers or those who do not want to share a bed there is also a queen air mattress provided. The chaise couches in the living area make super comfortable beds as well, but they are not convertible. This provides you with 5 sleeping spaces.

DC is a public transportation mecca. We also suggest using mass transit. For those arriving by car we can provide an on street parking permit at a cost of $50. This will allow you to park on street (public) within the vicinity of the apt for 2 weeks.

With a walkability index of 98% there is no need for a car. Zip car, car share is a mere one block away. DC is also fun to see via bike and its lanes dedicated to bike use. Renting a bike in the city is easy as well just Google Capitol Bikeshare.

If you prefer to travel and cook for yourself there is a great independent market half a block away. CVS is fully stocked and is 1 block away. Next door is a top notch Salvadoran restaurant that cannot be beat El Rinconcito Café.

If you like to walk and see the city, the walk to Union Station or the US Capitol takes about 20 minutes.

You can walk to the trendy Penn Quarter Area or Chinatown in fifteen minutes.

A unique city experience...

Washington DC conference

  • 5 of 5

The apartment we rented was great. It was clean, comfortable, and a great location. I came for a conference and it is only 2 blocks from the convention center. It is also a short walk to many restaurants. There is a bit of a climb up a narrow stairway so may not be great for someone with mobility issues. Otherwise it's a great place and I would recommend it.

This property was perfect for our DC trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. It was very clean, well stocked with everything you would need and lived up to the descriptions. We were concerned about it being located on the third floor and no elevator- but this was not an issue at all. As described it was in walking distance to everything . The owner was prompt with communications and the keypad entry made accessing the property very easy. We would stay at this property again or recommend it to friends.

I've been using vrbo for 15 yrs and never left a review until now. This place is a joke! Quick responses to book/take my money. No response to problems/questions. Microwave doesn't work properly. Advertises to sleep 6, but in no way accommodates 6. Shower has no hot water. Washer/dryer has the same tub. No washing while another load is drying. Only big enough for 2 pair of jeans. WIFI is practically non-existent. Emailed owner for parking pass on Thursday before we were to arrive on Saturday. As of Sunday still no pass. Called Saturday upon arrival to inquire about pass, as of Sunday no call back. Don't waste your money.

Owner's Response: Negative Nancy, Thanks for your stay. 6 people are more than comfortable on 2 king beds and a queen sized air mattress. As to the rest of your rant not once did you contact me or my partner Paul, WIFI works great, in fact there is the latest gaming editions of Amazon Fire TV boxes in each bedroom streaming video games and TV /Moives with ease. I am sure future guests will overlook this review as many folks can understand that people of your nature exist in daily life.

Great stay and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights and really enjoyed our stay. It was a great location as I had a conference at the convention center. The owners were very nice and accommodating. The rooms were a great size and everything was very clean. Compared to the hotel prices in this area, this as an excellent find. We would definitely stay again if we came back to DC.
