Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms + Air Mattress, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Historic home, 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 townhouse. Located in one of the most upscale sections of the city - the west side of DuPont Circle, in Kalorama - the safest neighborhood in DC. President Obama lives just around the corner!

The property 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 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 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, White House, Smithsonian, Washington Monument, and the zoo.

The DuPont Metro Station is just a few blocks away, and cabs are abundant in the area.

If you are bringing a vehicle, there are two options that can be added to your quote: driveway parking can be made available for up to 2 vehicles, and any number of 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, wireless Internet and eclectic decor.

Please Note: I book on a first-come basis, and the furnishings are constantly evolving.

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.

Amazing Unique Home!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Washington, D.C. for a conference and needed a place to stay that accommodated 3 guests and this was the perfect fit for us. Being in the heart of Dupont Circle gave us the security we needed to feel. Within seconds of many different restaurants and shopping. Close to tourist stuff. The patio was beautiful. We definitely would recommend this house to stay in.

DuPont Circle - Embassy Row

  • 4 of 5

I would highly recommend this location and this house. Conveniently located with all the amenities you could ask for! After exploring all that DC has to offer, it was wonderful to come home to this lovely, quiet location to rest up for the next days adventure! The neighborhood is wonderful to walk around offering great architecture and history. Coming from Maine it was wonderful to have everything in full bloom and see the colors of spring.

Thank you for making this property available to others, it was a wonderful experience.

Perfect weekend in DC

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a great location in a beautiful neighborhood.

The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you might need to come and go. The master bedroom bed and linens were very nice. The 2nd and 3rd bedroom and those staying there share a small bathroom in the hallway off the kitchen. The second couple or others need to be very flexible. As indicated by the owner please bring eye mask to sleep comfortable in the other two bedrooms due to all the natural light that comes in thru the windows. Very beautiful spaces but one will have issues sleeping if not prepared.

Its a beautiful apartment with a very shabby chic appeal. The owner provides great directions for everything in the apartment and responds very quickly if you have any issues.

We would rent it again it is a very comfortable place.

DC is a beautiful place with lots of things to see and do. We only touched the edge of it all.

Be sure and see the monuments at nights.

Outstanding Washington home

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
