Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Northwest Washington - Decatur: DuPont 576532

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

Comfortable 2 bedrooms, 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 - 1000 square feet of indoor living space. Featuring high ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and period finishes. Enhancing those quarters is a private screened-in back porch. Nestled in the trees, it's the perfect place to relax after a day of business or sightseeing.

The bedrooms are nicely sized and comfortably appointed. The mattresses topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival. A sofa sleeper in the living room expands the sleeping quarters.

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, street parking permits can be added to your quote.

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 Pam had to say about her stay:

Wonderful property in a fabulous location. My husband and two young adult children used this property on a recent visit to DC. The description of the property including photos was perfectly accurate. The apartment is lovely with interesting and comfortable furnishings and was spotless on our arrival. I was thrilled to find a French coffee press in the kitchen which makes delicious coffee! How wonderful it was to have a cup of coffee on the screened back porch in such a quiet setting. The area is great with easy access to restaurants, shopping and Metro. We enjoyed just walking the area to view the surrounding architecture and Embassies. The owner was thorough, helpful and well-organized on all materials involving the property. We would highly recommend this property for any visit to DC and would hope to stay there again ourselves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are a family of five, we all had a fantastic stay in Gloria's apartment in Kalorama, best neighborhood of Washington. Safe and close to Dupont Circle, a lot of stores and restaurants nearby.



The apartment is very charming and livable, the porch is so cosy and the best place to end the day.



Gloria is forthcoming and accommodating, very helpful in every way.

We would definitely stay again. Highly recommended.

Good, quiet location with great access to nearby local restaurants.

  • 3 of 5

It is an older townhouse on a quiet street. Beautiful neighborhood with a quick walk to Dupont circle. The amenities are sparse but nice. Only one bathroom and it is small. I would recommend this for a couple looking for a quiet romantic vacation but probably not for someone with small children.

Great location in a quiet neighborhood. Gloria was always a phone call away as we needed her. She was very accommodating to our needs for a later checkout.

Minimal but ok kitchen utensils. No area rugs. Small bathroom. Has washer dryer in unit. the location was good deal as traveling with some family. Gloria owner is very responsive.
