Save money spent on high-priced DC hotels; and instead, live like a local in this classic, fully furnished 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom DC rowhouse. All you need to do is bring your suitcase! Built in 1930, this home has been updated while preserving some of the historic charm such as original hardwood floors throughout and subway tile in the bathroom. Comfortably sleeps up to 6 people. Free high speed, wireless internet is available throughout the entire house and there are TVs on the 1st first floor and master bedroom with basic cable is (Verizon FiOS). A full size washer/dryer is located in the basement that is free for you to use. During the warm months, enjoy a seat on the patio and use the charcoal barbecue grill. All bed linens, towels, and kitchen cookware and utensils are provided. A car is recommended when staying at this rental. This property borders a fairly busy street, and you will hear street noise.

PUBLIC TRANSIT: Fort Totten Metro Station is 1 mile away where you can catch the Red, Green, and Yellow lines. There is parking, but it tends to fill up quickly. There is a bus stop near the rental that will take you to Fort Totten Metro. I advise my guests to use DC's main train hub, Union Station (Amtrak, Metro, MARC) which is 5 miles away. It has a large parking lot, shops, and restaurants. Other alternatives nearby are Takoma Metro Station which is 2 miles away, has a small parking lot, and is on the Red line; and Georgia Ave Petworth Station which is 2 miles away, has no parking, and is on the Green and Yellow Line.

NEARBY SIGHTSEEING/ATTRACTIONS- Smithsonian National Zoo is 3.5 miles (5.6 km) away. The closest entrance to Rock Creek Park which has trails, golf, tennis, canoeing and more is only 1.5 miles (2.4 km) away. Howard University is 3 miles (4.8 km) away. Catholic University is 2 miles (3.2 km) away. The Basilica of the National Shrine is 2.5 (4 km) miles away.

DOWNTOWN SIGHTSEEING: The Smithsonian museums and major DC landmarks are 5 miles (8 km) away.

PRO SPORTS TEAMS/VENUES: Basketball - Washington Wizards - Verizon Center, 5 miles (8 km) away. Baseball - Washington Nationals - Nationals Park, 7 miles (11.2 km) away, American Football - Washington Redskins - FedEx Field, 11 miles (17.7 km) away. Soccer/Football - DC United - RFK Stadium, 8 miles (12.9 km) away.

BIKE RENTAL: Capital Bikeshare has a bike rental station a short walk from the townhouse.

COOLING/HEATING: During the warm months, there are several in-window air conditioning units that keep the entire house cool. There is also a portable fan. When the weather is cold, the house is heated by radiators throughout the house and controlled on a central thermostat located on the first floor. Be forewarned, for your comfort you will likely need to set the thermostat higher than 70F, especially when upstairs at night.

GROCERY STORE: There are 2 Walmarts that are each 1 mile (1.6 km) away and a Safeway that is about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) away

DC for the weekend

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The house was well kept and clean. My family and I felt like we were at home. We would definitely recommend this location to our friends. We visited DC and Maryland. The rooms are actually bigger than the pictures.

The accommodation was found to be as advertised, but we were disappointed by the neighbourhood.

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

The house is located adjacent to a busy street. The traffic noise is very noticeable during morning rush hour if you are trying to sleep in. Our daughter was taunted by a neighbour when she went for a walk in the morning to a local convenience store to buy some milk. As a result, we didn't feel safe going for a walk in the neighbourhood at any time. The house is old but well maintained except for the plug in the bathtub which does not work.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing a review. Street noise is a challenging part of renting a place in a big city, and my rental borders a fairly busy street. I will have the look plug in the bathroom looked at and fixed. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.. Finally, I'm sorry about the encounter your daughter had.

Great place to stay with my family

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

My wife, 1yr old and I stayed there for the weekend while we checked out the District and surrounding areas. Mostly we were out and about but the setup was comfortable and seemed suitable to a much larger group as well. The owner was quite nice and met us at the property to give us the run down on the house and the area, which is quiet and clean.

Most notably is that this is centrally located to many different areas such as Silver Spring, Rock Creek Park, and Bethesda to name a few. I recommend this place for family or a group of friends looking to check out the city.

Clean, convenient and interesting architecture

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our group consisted of my wife, son, son's girlfriend and me. This row house was only blocks away from our daughter & son-in-law, and we were all together to celebrate the birth of our second granddaughter. It's an architecturally interesting end-unit on one of DC's many pie-shaped lots with a huge yard. Very convenient to all parts of DC due to proximity to major arterials of Missouri Avenue, Georgia Avenue, New Hampshire Avenue and North Capitol Street. The house was super clean, spacious enough to accommodate four, our beds were very comfortable. The owner was very responsive to all of our questions and requests, especially when we had a change of plans and needed to extend our stay for one additional day. We will stay here again on a future visit.

Great base for visiting DC.

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

We were greeted by Benitia on our arrival and she kindly showed us the house and advised on local grocery shopping locations. We found the house to be clean and tidy Andes described, a comfortable base for our 4 nights whilst visiting DC and found the use of the driveway for our hire car convenient.

Large grocery shops are a 5 min drive away and there are a whole host of different eateries a 10 minute drive at Silver Springs if you fancy relaxing away from DC central. Ledos pizza on Georgia was also good.

The house is convenient for the bus ( bus stop 3 mins walk away) and then metro into DC central from Tacoma station if you have no car, or don't want to drive in as we did on a couple of occasions.

As well as visiting the usual memorials and Smithsonians and Zoo, we'd recommend the SPY museum and a trip to Mount Vernon.

We'd recommend this house to anyone visiting DC.

Car: recommended

DC has a rich history and many attractions. Want to tour the White House? Plan way in advance and write your local Congress-person. The National Monument, Smithsonian Museums, Vietnam War Memorial, Washington Zoo, Jefferson Memorial are just a few sights. In late March-early April, the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom. Not to mention all of the wonderful neighborhoods such as Capitol Hill, Adam's Morgan, Georgetown, Dupont Circle, and Chinatown.

Neighboring states VA and MD have a lot to offer as well. In VA, Arlington National Cemetery and Mount Vernon Estate aren't far from downtown DC. Civil War buffs may want to drive out to Manassas to the Battlefield Park.

MD also has many sights. Spend a day in Baltimore. Go to the Baltimore Harbor and eat world famous blue crabs. Tour Fort McHenry and the Edgar Allen Poe House. Head to Annapolis, located on the Chesapeake Bay and home to the US Naval Academy.
