I am an Executive Director for a microfinance non-profit. I also teach aerobics part-time. I speak French and my 8 year old daughter attends the Lycee Rochambeau French School. My husband is a lobbyist in the Health Care industry. We love traveling internally and enjoy hosting international visitors, especially French speaking and helping them to explore beautiful Washington, DC. We live in the main house above the rental unit.
Dara purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Dara chose Cardozo
The Logan Circle/ U Street neighborhood is one of the most desirable in NW Washington. There are restaurants, bars, shopping, health clubs, all within walking distance. A short metro ride brings you to the major attractions in Washington, including the museums, the Capitol, and the White House. You can borrow our parking pass and leave your car anywhere on the street in Zone 1. However, once you arrive, you really won't need your car.
What makes this Apartment unique
Logan Circle is one of the city's most historic neighborhoods.

Convenient, Cozy, Great Location
Our visit started out by our host, Dara being very accommodating bc our flight got changed at the last minute and we were able to check in early. The apartment was very clean and had all the necessities and then some. The bathroom was stocked with lotion, shampoo, hairspray and so on.. I loved the thick fluffy towels, great pillows on the bed and the mattress was very comfortable. The decor was hip and fun and the perfect amount of room for 2. The apartment is one block from a main street with lots of great restaurants and Trader Joe's to stock up on groceries and wine! The apartment has all the extra touches like umbrellas, bags to carry groceries and cozy throws for the couch. The Metro/subway is literally one block over and its easy to navigate and we felt safe using it. Our entire DC experience was wonderful and this VRBO was a great perk and our host was wonderful. I highly recommend this property.
Great apartment in perfect location
Comfy cozy place quiet etc
Close to restaurants and shopping
Great location but some issues
This apartment offers many positives: it is nicely decorated, quiet, and very conveniently located to the Metro, restaurants and shopping. The wifi and TV (Dish) are both excellent. Dara and Al live upstairs and are respectful of guests’ privacy. The heating system works well, important during the very cold weather of our stay.
On the down side, there had been a fire in the townhouse next door the week before we arrived, and the apartment had a strong smoky smell. We noticed it right away, though we had not been told about it in advance. After the first night the hosts offered us a refund, which we declined due to the hassle, expense and inconvenience of finding new accommodations and moving. We cleaned the air filter twice and bought air fresheners, which helped some, but I cannot recommend the apartment until it is thoroughly de-smoked. Dara has refunded us one night’s stay, which we appreciate. Now that we are home, we find that we need to launder all of the clothes we took as they have a smoky smell.
The kitchen includes all the necessary appliances, such as coffee maker, microwave, stove, fridge, washer and dryer and all worked well. Maybe we have been spoiled by other rentals which provided better equipment, but we thought the pantry and equipment could use an upgrade, important if you actually plan to do some cooking. For example, we had to request dish towels as none were provided, the Teflon frying pans were peeling, and some staples such as sugar were missing.
The fire was not in our house but our neighbor's. It occurred in February in their fireplace on their main floor. Since then, our apartment has been almost continuously occupied and no other guest has complained or brought up a concern about a smell of smoke. The air filters have been cleaned repeatedly and all the carpets were professionally cleaned after these particular guests left.
Just like Home!
Dara and Al are amazing hosts.. property is always clean, comfortable, safe. Excellent location for walking or access to Metro. Newly painted alcove is gorgeous and adds sense of whole other room,
Amazing apartment in fantastic location
This is an adorable apartment in an amazing location! Only 2 blocks from U St metro, close restaurants/shopping, Dara was a joy to work with! Will def stay here again next time we are in the city! The available parking pass is def a bonus. Close to historic Ben's Chili bowl which my husband loved!
