Junior 1 Bedroom Apt / Sleeps 3
About Greg Sitzmann
We moved to DC together in 2005, the year we were married. It was going to be a short-term stay, and here we are 12 years later. We absolutely love our city.
Greg Sitzmann purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Greg Sitzmann chose Shaw
The nice thing about the English basement apartment is that it's only a couple steps below ground. So it really feels more like a first-floor space. The ceilings are high. And the four tall windows let in plenty of natural light.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our neighborhood, Shaw, is also called Old City. It has a great neighborhood vibe. Subway stops are convenient. But if you like to walk, it's a beautiful city to see on foot.

Parking is obtainable but not abundant. Be prepared to park distantly in certain windows of time or plan to arrive at a time when parking is more available. I highly recommend this VRBO and it is very convenient!
We had a wonderful time and would stay again! The apartment was perfectly appointed and a lovely place to come “home” to every evening! Just what we needed.
The space was exactly what we expected. It was close to the metro amd easy to navigate. The owner was responsive and helpful with accommodations we requested. Excellent stay!
Great place and location
A basement apartment that felt humid when we first arrived. After figuring out how to turn on the A/C (hint: point remote at unit and wait for the beep after making temperature adjustment) it felt great quickly. Good grocery store and restaurants within a 2 block area. We used the Mt Vernon Metro stop. It was a safe walk, just use street smarts. The side walkway entrance is a bit hidden, I was nervous about arriving back from sight seeing in the dark, but was happy that there were lots of street lights. Coffee maker and grinder, toaster, good quality sheets and towels. Washer was a great bonus. It is a washer/dryer combo unit like in RV’s. Yes it takes 4 hours for a smallish load. Run it when you are sight seeing for the day or at night and all is fine. Greg answered questions quickly. I will definitely stay here again given the opportunity.
Cozy little gem with easy access to the Convention Center!
Quiet and comfortable apartment close to grocery store and many other amenities. This was my first time using Home Away and I will continue. Greg us a fantastic host and responded to my inquiries within minutes of sending them. I highly recommend the location if you have any business at the Convention Center (5 block walk) and as a single female, I felt quite safe walking alone.
Perfect for a couple and a weekend getaway
Greg's apartment is clean, roomy, well-equipped and convenient to the metro. There is a well-stocked Giant supermarket a block or so away, and the metro is two and a half blocks south. Parking was no problem for the entire weekend. Nearby are plenty of restaurants and a great coffee shop.
We're located just 3 blocks from the Convention Center.
