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

Clean, well-appointed, responsive hosts, good location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great week staying at this property. The home was very clean (this can't be stressed enough) and had all the amenities that we needed to make ourselves at home. We were impressed by the responsiveness of Benitia and her family team. We had a minor issue with the property during our stay and it was very quickly and competently solved by Jean. We appreciated having some basic necessity items available that we weren't expecting, e.g. coffee and filters, laundry detergent, bath soap, etc. We would stay here again and would recommend it to our friends.

We love this cozy Rowhouse.

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying in this home. I purposely looked for it online as i knew how the house upkeep was maintained. I also liked the area as it is centrally located to transportation , restaurants, Walmart and not far from the downtown area. I highly recommended this home away from home in the DC area.

Great place close to sites

  • 5 of 5

Benitia had a fabulous place close to the sites. We easily fit out 8 and 10 year old daughters, my mom and my husband and I and had room to spare. There was an extra bathroom in the basement and great space to workout out that we streamed workouts from our computer! It was easy to ride Uber to rail, or Uber into town for 5-20 dollars depending on location. Highly recommend!

DC for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
