•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 it is fairly easy to street park within a block. The Metro Red Line stop is on DuPont Circle at Connecticut, just 2 blocks away. Go to the WMTA website to plan your use of the metro system.
DuPont Circle - one of the most interesting and cutting-edge neighborhoods on the Eastern-seaboard!

My husband, 6-year-old, and I had a good experience overall in this apartment. We enjoyed having more space than in a traditional hotel room and liked the location near the Dupont Circle Metro station and many other restaurants, shops, etc. The apartment looks just as pictured. As noted in a couple of other reviews, it can be a bit noisy due to footsteps and squeaky floors in the upper-story apartment, but the street location itself is quiet. One minor consideration for us was that our son slept on the pull-out couch, which was close to the air conditioning unit. The bedroom, which adjoins the living room, doesn't have a separate air conditioner (although it does have a ceiling fan), so we kept the sliding doors open between the rooms to share the cool air. This might not be a great set-up for non-family members traveling together. Also, the pull-out couch worked fine for our son, but I wouldn't imagine it being very comfortable for adults. Water pressure and temperature in the bathroom were good, and we had plenty of clean towels. The washer and dryer came in handy during our stay.
Clean, active and fun neighboorhood, comfortable furnishings. We would stay again. Note that parking is really difficult. There are nearby garages for weekdays but they are closed over the weekend. Next time, staying over a weekend, I would drop luggage and then park further out and metro back in.
First time AirBnB user and this place delivered in spades! It was a great location and came as described. The apartment was clean and tidy with all the described amenities in place. It's walking distance from anything you could hope to want to see and taste in D.C.. Although, come prepared to walk, because parking is a bit of a drag in this city. The host was very responsive and helpful in answering questions. I would definitely stay here again and recommend friends in the future.
The apartment is charming and in a great location. Charlotte was fabulous and provided a helpful DC guide (sites, transportation details, grocery options, etc.) to help navigate the city. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
The place was great. Nice and clean and excellent location. Host was very organized and unit was easy to get into.
Charlotte was very helpful in facilitating my stay. The flat is really convenient and the outdoor terrace was great ! The apartment is in tidy condition and has a huge kitchen / dining area. I would stay there again.
The apartment was lovely, clean and in a great neighborhood. Communication was easy. I would definitely recommend staying here.

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.
