|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Nice efficiency apartment in a popular neighborhood. Within walking distance to many restaurants, pubs, and cafes. It is very close to metro - only a 5 minute walk to the Shaw metro stop on the yellow line. Great for a couple, small family, or short-term work assignment. There is a private entrance and it is equipped with a large flat screen tv, that you can watch in bed on lazy days, high speed wireless internet, washer and dryer and full size kitchen.
The apartment includes a guest parking pass that allows you to park on the street for your entire stay.
There is corner market a block away that has essentials, a Giant supermarket a 15 minute walk or a quick ride on the G2 Bus (that picks up at the house). There are three other large supermarkets (Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's) within a 1 mile radius.
Linens, towels, shampoo, dishes, pots, etc. are all provided
This is a completely private apartment on the ground floor of a townhouse on Cooper Circle with natural morning light from the front window and door.

Former Army officer, attorney and entrepreneur. I've lived in the neighborhood since 2001 and love it.
Austin purchased this apartment in 2001
The apartment is ideal for people who want to be in a walkable neighborhood, close to metro, but who are on a budget. It's in historic Ledroit Park near U Street and Logan Circle neighborhoods.
Excellent stay! The apartment was well equipped, fun location, and close to the metro. Would definitely recommend!
I have to say that Austin made our trip extremely easy- I really appreciated how quick he was to respond and how reasonably priced the rental was! The rental was clean and the bed was super comfy (use caution when sitting on the couch!). The first draw back to this place is the amount of noise from the upstairs unit- and I don't mean heavy feet/stomping. There just didn't seem to be much insulation between the rental and upstairs so you were constantly listening to all manner of pops, gear grinding, clicks, and whooshes from their appliances, bathrooms, kitchen, and heating unit. Our second issue was the quality of the front door since the surrounding neighborhood has heavy duty doors and metal bars on their windows/doors, the rental door felt like it could be easily breached!
On the positive side, we discovered a local brewery (Right Proper Brewery) that had good beer, there are a lot of fun shops/restaurants/bars in both walking and driving distance to the rental, and if you want good Ramen- check out the place adjacent to the 9:30 Club! Haikan was the best!
Overall, I appreciated the fact that I was able to stay there for New Years Eve for a reasonable price and that Austin was so helpful. Unfortunately, I don't think I would stay in this rental again simply because I didn't get much sleep and didn't feel very safe.
We stayed in DC for a conference at the convention center (20ish minute walk). Decent location for restaurants, pubs and getting to the convention center. Quick metro ride to the Mall. On street parking was easy to get. However, it is a basement apt (not much daylight) and there were tenants upstairs. You could HEAR everything (talking, walking, water running). That would be my biggest complaint. Otherwise, the apt was very clean and had everything we needed. Austin (the owner) was prompt in responding to texts.
We enjoyed our stay in the Cooper Circle apartment. Being so close to both the Shaw/Howard metro stop and with several metro bus stops nearby, it was easy to get around. We hope to stay here again next time we visit D.C.
The apartment is well laid out and was perfect for my wife and I. It could use some minor TLC - no bathtub plug, towel hanger in bathroom that falls off, and light in front of closet that does not work. These were pretty minor things though. The location is excellent. Ledroit Park is a beautiful and safe neighborhood. The U Street Corridor has a lot of action going on and it's near enough to walk. 5 minute walk to the subway.Great having laundry. The bed is comfortable and the furniture is in good shape. Used the the stove to make pizza. The kitchen has enough utensils, etc. to cook. Nice place to stay.
This basement apartment was clean and attractive. It was convenient for sightseeing trips but had a homey, neighborhood vibe. Austin was very responsive . We enjoyed breakfast at the charming Big Bear Café. The queen bed was very comfy. However, the air mattress deflated quickly and the fold out couch was rickety. I would say this is more appropriate for two people until there are additional comfortable sleeping accommodations.
The place was very convenient to all the museums and loved the neighborhood. The apartment had all that we needed and would definitely stay here again. thanks, Austin!
