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 five-star amenities; the same touches that I appreciate when I travel: lodging located in a gorgeous neighborhood, cleanliness, upscale linens and towels, comfortable mattresses, high-speed 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.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The location is in a safe upscale neighborhood near the Embassy Row, the Metro and lots of dining choices. We also walked to Georgetown from the house. The pictures acurately describe this lovely home with the exception that the yard and court yard are much bigger than I expected- a very nice surprise. Gloria has the home well stocked with dishes and linens. The beds are comfortable and the home has lots of natural light. I would highly recommend staying here. We took the $200 option of parking in the driveway and would certainly do that again.

Perfect spot near DuPont Circle

  • 5 of 5

The flat was more than perfect --- spacious, omfortable, with lots of windows overlooking the gorgeous grounds. We elected for driveway parking, a sound choice, as the neighborhood is very popular and even with a pass street parking might have been a challenge. We would return in a minute, and if we had a smaller party would look at gloria's 1 or 2 minute apartments. Cannot say enough good things.

Our family spent 3 days in the DC area and loved the house and the location. Everything was clean when we arrived and the home was exactly as promised. If in the area we would love to stay again
