•DuPont Circle is one of the city's most vibrant, eclectic neighborhoods and is a great location from which to experience Washington, DC. In DuPont Circle (Park) itself you can play a game of afternoon chess, participate in group yoga or listen to the strum and hum of the various local musicians who make "the Circle" a meeting point. The neighborhood is filled with wonderful restaurants, shops, cafe's and grassy parks; plus the DuPont Circle Farmers Market is one of the largest in the city. You are just 2 blocks from the Redline Metro stop, and can walk to historic Georgetown, George Washington University, The World Bank, and IMF, Embassy Row, think tanks and museums among others points of interest.
•You won't need a car with the great access to public transit from this location, but if you do have one please let us know as we do have a parking space available for an extra fee. The Metro RedLine station is on DuPont Circle at Connecticut, just 2 blocks away. Go to www.WMATA.com to plan your use of the metro system.
Patio, laundry room (free) and of course just outside your door the city itself!

Other Things to Note
Note that this is a lower level apartment. If you are over 6' tall there are places where you will need to duck to avoid a beam.
*Please note that stays over 14 nights require guests pay for an in-stay cleaning ($90). A 30 night stay would require 2 in-stay cleanings, etc.
Trash cans are numbered by unit, 1 - 4. Trash collection day is Tuesday and Friday, please place your trash can on the curb the night before garbage collection to ensure that it is emptied.
No smoking inside the building please.
Please turn down or off the air conditioning and heating whenever you leave the apartment.
Departure is 10am. If you have a late flight let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Please wash any dirty dishes and put away.
It would be very helpful if you would start a load of towels washing before your departure. (They take so long to dry!)
Turn off or down the heat or AirCon to conserve energy.
Ensure that the apartment is securely locked up when you depart.
Thank you for your consideration!

Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week.
A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the "must-see" sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation.
We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit.
