About Dara

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 U Street Corridor

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.

Perfect location, spacious accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised. Fully equipped kitchen made it easy to fix Thanksgiving dinner. Close to metro station and lots of great places to eat. Plenty of room for the two of us to stay and for our daughter to visit.

Will definitely plan on staying here when we visit our daughter again.

Exactly what I was looking for

  • 5 of 5

I came into town for a conference at the convention center and this was the perfect rental for my needs. I was able to walk (about a mile) or jump on the Metro (a short walk to U Street, two stops down the line). This rental was close to restaurants and stores...and with a Trader Joe's right around the corner, I was able to pick up groceries for my stay. It's way more convenient and cost effective than staying in a hotel. I definitely recommend this property!

Ideal place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, would imagine it's difficult to find a better place from which to explore Washington. Great neighbourhood and a lovely comfortable apartment. Can't say anything bad about it.

Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

Dara was a great host, although we never met her she was always in touch ensuring everything was ok. We were provided with heaps of info and check in/out was easy. The place was just as in the photos- very neat, clean and with everything we needed. Having stayed in a hotel before in DC I would never stay anywhere else but at Dara`s place in future.
