Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom + Sofa Sleeper + Air Mattress, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)

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

Elegant 1 bedroom, 1½ bathroom on the 2nd 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 - 1000 square feet of indoor living space - featuring high ceilings, tall windows and original French doors. Enhancing those quarters are two Juliet balconies: just off the kitchen for dining alfresco, and next to the bedroom for morning coffee and conversation outdoors.

The spiral staircase leads to a master retreat that is tucked away from the rest of the home. The bedroom is nicely sized and comfortably appointed, the organic mattress is topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival. Complementing the space is a full bathroom, sunroom alcove and balcony. On the main level, the sofa sleeper and half bath lends privacy when traveling with couples.

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 in walking distance of 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 a five-star experience. The same touches that I appreciate when I travel: lodging located in a great neighborhood, cleanliness, quality linens and towels, comfortable mattresses and high speed internet.

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

Here's what Kathy from Ottawa had to say about her stay:

Excellent choice! This was a perfect choice for my recent three night stay in DC. The apartment was just as described in the listing - very clean, bright, safe and relaxed. It had all the amenities I required to make it an enjoyable stay including a comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and a great WiFi connection. It was a fantastic location – within walking distance of major attractions but close to the Dupont Circle metro station if you prefer public transit. There is a good selection of restaurants, cafes and groceries in the area. Parking (with a permit) was available immediately across the street from the apartment and I never had to move my vehicle during my visit. I was most impressed with the responsiveness of the host who was accommodating and genuinely interested in ensuring a positive experience. She provided very clear, timely and detailed information and was always professional. I would definitely consider staying here again the next time I am in the area.

About Gloria

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

I got kudos from my two girlfriends for finding this place. It was perfect. The area was beautiful (and safe), it was hard to believe it was only steps away from resturants, shops, and the metro. The condo was absolutely charming. It was spotless. The kitchen has been updated and had everything we needed. The bed AND air mattress were incredibly comfortable. (We all wrote the name of the air mattress down so we could go home and buy one for OUR guests). Gloria was delightful to work with. (We had one mini-glitch and even though she was out of town, it was addressed immediately). Thanks, Gloria! We would definitely come back to this lovely condo.

TRIP TO D.C. WITH OUR 10 YEAR OLD GRANDSON

  • 5 of 5

Very charming home. Great location. This home is well maintained in a quaint neighborhood.

Only negative is carrying luggage up the spiral staircase to the master suite. Gloria is wonderful to talk to and will bend over backwards to help with any questions.

Owner's Response: I continue to be awed by the wonderful people who stay in my home! It's fun to watch the industry change, too. When I first started out, most guests were here for political business. Now, I have just as many retirees who are showing their grandkids a good time.

Charming, vintage apartment in safe, tree-lined, quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location for shops, restaurants and Metro in Dupont Circle area. Apartment was very clean and we enjoyed the two balconies. Owner communicated to make sure we had everything we needed the day after we arrived.

Charming apartment in quiet residential area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week in the apartment while we visited DC. It had everything we needed and was comfortable, light and airy. The bed was very comfortable and the linens of high quality. That's important to us. Both the apartment and the neighborhood were peacefully quiet. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and shopped at the corner grocery. The Metro was an easy 1/2 mile walk. Short Uber rides took us to/from Georgetown, Downtown, National Cathedral.

Gloria was great to work with. We had only two occasions to ask for help and she responded immediately. We'd stay here again.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Dupont circle is a great neighborhood.

Walking distance to Phillips Collection, Metro, Trader Joe's, Whole foods , Starbucks etc. Apt was very clean. Circular staircase is steep & narrow; not for children,seniors, or large suitcases. Otherwise, delightful upstairs bedroom & bath.
