About the property

Lovely spot, where residential neighborhood meets bustling Mt. Pleasant Road

Steps from central Mount Pleasant and the Saturday farmers' market, the available apartment is the in-laws' suite below our "Grande Dame" townhouse on historic Lamont Street. The apartment has its own entrance off Lamont Street, and is not directly connected to our residence. A cozy, well appointed apartment in great location, is a delightful alternative to staying in a hotel but with all the same amenities, ideal for business travel or family vacation. Private entrance off street, shaded patio in tranquil back yard. Easy walks to Zoo, Rock Creek Park, and Metro. HABLAMOS ESPANOL. PARLONS FRANCAIS.

About Kelly Willis

My husband and I bought this house just last year, and decided not to rent the basement, so that we have plenty of space when the grandparents visit! So we left it furnished and with none of our personal clutter, and are happy to share it with travelers who want a nice (and more economical) alternative to a hotel.

It was absolutely perfect for two couples visiting DC for a 3 day weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our purposes. One couple had lived in DC in the last century. The property is in the heart of a thriving neighborhood and easy access to other popular neighborhoods in DC, Adams Morgan, DuPont Circle and others. We used Lyft and Metro buses for transportation. Both worked well. Our primary purpose was visiting museums and the short ride by Lyft to the mall maximized our time in the museums.

The beds were comfortable, the towels were thick and soft. We wanted to use the patio but never seemed to have time. Kelly was accommodating of a couple of special needs we had. She said it was because she and I are from Michigan State, but I believe she just wanted us to enjoy ourselves with the least amount of effort. We did. Next time I visit DC for any reason, I would want to stay in this Amazing apartment in Kalorama, Washington, DC.

* Wi Fi was strong

*washer and dryer was easy to operate

*Patio is covered

*Neighbors were friendly

*Rooms and furniture are comfortable

*voice activated cable TV

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to have you! Anyone reading this should do whatever they can to have Bernard and his wife as guests... they left the place in pristine condition (maybe even cleaner than I left it?!?) and on top of that left me a beautiful house plant that will remind me of the Scott's and the Johnson's every time I look at it!

Graduation weekend celebration

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our stay in DC!

There were 3 of us, a couple and adult son. We have enough space for all of us to relax when we were there. The location for us was perfect! Our daughter lives in Cleveland park less than 1 mile away. Coffee shop and good food are just down the street on 16th, along with the bus if that is now you are traveling, we used UBER and only had a max wait of 5'. The place has everything you need, is clean and comfortable. I will keep this in mind when I visit DC and daughter again!

Perfect, charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed this apartment on our vacation! It was very comfortable and conveniently located to all of the DC sights and activities. We took Uber everywhere it was incredibly easy, convenient and affordable. The beds and pillows were great! The kitchen was appointed with everything we needed for cooking meals there. Kelly was a fantastic hostess! She even graciously invited us to join her family and friends on their rooftop for the Fourth of July fireworks. Without hesitation, we would recommend staying at this lovely apartment! We hope to one day return!

So close to the attractions. We used Uber and was in and out for five days with less than $250 for the week - we had 5 people and the pickup was never more than 10 min. Great not fighting the roads and looking for paid parking. Apartment has every thing you need with a great location. Thank you Kelly.

It was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The back bedroom door latch needs to be adjusted. The tv in that room doesn’t work and the toilet seat seemed to be broken. However, these are all minor problems compared to the overall comfort and convenience! We will absolutely recommend it and will use it again next time we come to DC!
