Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday townhome in Northwest Washington - Main: Dupont 479031

Historic townhome, in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood, 2 blocks from the heart of the action!

Elegant 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, on the 1st floor of a classic DC rowhouse. Located in one of the most upscale sections of the city - the west side of DuPont Circle, in Kalorama - the safest neighborhood in DC.

The home is exceptionally large - 1850 square feet of indoor living space. Featuring high ceilings, tall windows and original French doors. Enhancing those quarters are two private gardens: the courtyard for dining alfresco and the flagstone patio for conversation around the garden.

The bedrooms are nicely sized and comfortably appointed, the mattresses topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival. The master bedroom overlooks the courtyard and has an organic king mattress and en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is even larger, with French doors leading out to the back garden. The third bedroom is smaller and rustic, yet the glass ceiling gives you the thrill of gazing at the stars from bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and if you're into organics, included is a juicer and a Vitamix. Please feel free to use our spices for your cooking needs; groceries can be purchased just down the way at the corner market.

You are a short walk to hundreds of cafes and restaurants in DuPont and Georgetown, and within walking distance to the Capitol, monuments, museums, and the zoo. The DuPont Metro Station is just a few blocks away, and taxi’s and Uber cars are abundant in the area.

If you are bringing a vehicle, you have two options that can be added to your quote: driveway parking can be made available for up to 2 vehicles, and street parking permits can also be arranged.

What you can expect: it is my aim to provide guests a five-star experience. Touches that I appreciate when I travel: cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable bedding, wireless Internet and eclectic decor.

Please Note: I book on a first-come basis, and the furnishings are constantly evolving, including the Grateful Dead memorabilia!

Here's what Sharon from Tennessee had to say about her stay:

Beautiful home. This is truly an elegant home located in a well-established and safe DC neighborhood in NW Washington. The photographs shown with the listing are totally accurate, but photographs cannot capture the real beauty of the home. Large walls of windows in almost every room allow you to enjoy the lovely landscaped gardens while you are inside and give you a sense of calm. Our son is an architect who works in DC and even he was amazed by the design and beauty of the home. The home was extremely clean and well-cared for, and had everything we needed. Gloria was a very gracious hostess and our only regret was that we did not get to meet her in person. We are looking forward to returning to this beautiful home on our future trips to DC.

About Gloria

My husband and I prefer quiet homes in residential neighborhoods whenever we travel, and offer our home to like-minded people when we're away.

It is my aim to provide guests a five-star experience. Touches that I appreciate when I travel: an upscale neighborhood, cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable bedding, wireless Internet and eclectic decor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gloria was a spectacular in absentee hostess ! Immediate responsive to any and all questions from the initial booking throughout my 4-day visit and everybody is going to have unanticipated questions in a guest house (like, what's that WiFi password again?). The house itself was in a lovely quiet side street in the city, easy to get a cab, to find a dining spot - and with the handiest tiny corner grocery store ten steps away that has all the amenities a guest could want: fruit, pastries, wine. We became quite the friends of that supplier of all things. Charming location for a special feeling that a hotel can't give for a city experience. My first experience [with a vacation rental] and I booked it for me and two high school BFFs who scattered to three different parts of the country & who get together in some city in October of every year with one each of our grown-up girls (6 of us in all). The leap of faith for a house instead of individual hotel suites turned out to be a super decision. We were all very pleased and that's not easy with reunions. Linens were there exactly as promised, kitchen and equipment all in working order, dishes and silver and so forth, all the details that one doesn't want to think about on a trip: all provided. And, it was memorable to be able to stock the kitchen and enjoy breakfast together or drinks, or dinner. Got a lot more catching up done and easy sharing of our lives than when we stayed in individual suites in hotels. The booking was my good fortune in all respects.

Outstanding Washington home

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding 3 bedroom home in walking distance to DuPont Circle Metro. Clean, with beautiful courtyard and outside patio. A quick 12 minute walk to the Metro and close to all of Washington DC's sights. Highly recommend this home and its wonderful owner Gloria. Lesley K

Great Property in Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. There was plenty of space for my husband and myself, our two children and father-in-law. The neighborhood is quiet and very conveniently located. Beds were comfy and the showers were great. Only drawbacks for me were the lack of closet space (the owners clothes are in the closets) and the freezer was packed with the owners' food. But overall everything was great and we would definitely recommend this rental!

Peaceful oasis in the city

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful escape in such a perfect location! We loved how there was plenty of room for all of us be there but not feel at all cramped. The furnishings were lovely but comfortable enough to use. We felt at home. It was an ideal spot in which to embark on adventures about the city whether it be a walking jont in the neighborhood or something further. Having the parking space was ideal since it gave you the piece of mind that it was there regardless of your plans. Would happily return on our next D.C. adventure! Thank you!!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive from the Southernmost point in New Jersey, what a pleasure it was to arrive at this welcoming home. Gloria was wonderful in allowing us to drop our bags early since we had reservations for an early evening event that would have meant unloading the cars afterwards.

This charming home was appointed impeccably. The "shabby-sheik" décor was done in moderation so as to give a homey feel without being gingerbready. All the bedrooms were spacious with wonderful views of the courtyards, yes, there are two. My husband and I stayed in the second bedroom because it had a direct entrance to the garden terrace and my morning coffee before the crew stirs is of the utmost importance to me. Then, when the kids got up, what a lovely way to have a nice breakfast to start our busy days.

The location is fantastic - convenient, central but tucked away on a quiet street. Parking passes were essential - thank you Gloria for the suggestion.

After long, eventful, and exhausting days, what a godsend it was to come "home" to extraordinarily comfortable beds with many, many great pillows.

Gloria was a wonderful hostess and immediately got back to us during the process in response to any questions/concerns we had. My grandsons are both avid readers and were thrilled with the book selection, especially all the Shel Silverstein books, and they love to play chess. The internet connection was great, we never even turned on the TV.

This is the second time in the past year we have vacationed in a "HomeAway" rental and both times the experience was more than expected.

Owner's Response: The worst part of my job is that I don't often get to meet my guests face to face. That becomes especially disappointing when you come upon a family as nice as this one! An added bonus to this work that I never hear anyone speak of, is how much goodness comes into the walls of your home by having wonderful people staying there. Thank you again for the joy you brought with you!
