The Space

DESCRIPTION: This room has its own private entrance, its own in-room private bath (shower/toilet/sink), and in-room fridge and microwave Free WiFi is available. The room has high ceilings, hardwood floors, central air (for the summer), radiating heat (for the winter), a security alarm system (for safety), a "breakfast nook" (bar table and chairs), and a queen-sized futon bed (with double-thick futon mattress) that also folds up into a comfortable couch. Also included for convenience is an ironing board and iron, hooks and hangers, hairdryer, plates/cups/napkins/silverware, hot water kettle, water filter, and a set of first aid and extra toilettries and cleaning supplies in the bathroom. Towels and linens provided.

PRIVACY: This space has its own exterior entrance and is locked away from the rest of the apartment, so it might as well be its own apartment. I debated between listing it as "Private Room" or "Full Apartment" - but because there is not a full kitchen, I decided "Private Room" is more accurate. The space was originally used as a home office, and no one who came for meetings could even tell it was part of a larger apartment, because of its own entrance, bathroom, and lock-off capability. You will never know either!

LOCATION: This space is on the first floor of a 3-story, brick Victorian home in the northern part of the historic Dupont Circle neighborhood. The house is just a few steps away from several ethnic restaurants and shops, including Thai, Mexican/Cuban, Korean, Mediterranean, and a chocolatier. It is also just a 1-minute walk away from the U Street jazz corridor and Adams Morgan. In addition, the house is about a 5-to-7-minute walk from Dupont Circle Metro Station and Dupont Circle itself, a 5-minute walk to the vibrant 14th Street corridor, and a 5-minute walk to Connecticut Avenue restaurants and shops.

NOTE: This space is not handicapped accessible. There are about 5 exterior steps leading up to the private entrance.

  • I really enjoyed the stay at Will's place! I was staying there with a friend for one weekend and we had everything we needed. Even though I arrived very early it was no problem. Will was very welcoming from the first moment.

  • Will's place is located in a safe and convenient neighborhood, close to great restaurants and public transportation. We stayed for 2 nights and loved that many of the DC tourist attractions were only a short metro ride away. The room itself is very clean and Will provided many thoughtful amenities (fridge, utensils, bath products, etc.) to make it a comfortable stay. There was also central AC which was made the room a nice retreat from the DC summer heat.

    Will was also a great host! He kept constant and prompt communication with us before and during our stay and was very helpful whenever we had any questions. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

  • Will was great! He was super communicative before the stay, left explicit directions for getting into the unit and was willing to answer any of the questions I had about the neighborhood before booking. The unit is super nice, clean and convenient! It was exactly what it looks like in the pictures (with a new fridge though!) and the futon was comfortable. It's also located in a great part of town. There were lots of people out and about and it was less than a 10 minute walk to Dupont Circle. Try eating at the Mexican restaurant around the corner!

  • We really enjoyed our stay in D.C.! Will was a great host and his place was great! Very close to a ton of restaurants and a short walk to the heart of DuPont circle.

  • We really enjoyed staying at Will's place! It was very clean, everything was provided (linens, towels, cutlery, ...), communication was fast, kind and always helpful (though we didn't meet Will). The neighbourhood is very vibrant, which is great for the evenings, but comes with the disadvantage that it can be somewhat noisy (we've been there at the weekend). Second thing we noticed is that the shower has a low water flow rate, so shampooing takes time :) Both wasn't a problem for us, we just noticed. Still, we very much enjoyed the place and would come back at anytime! Thanks Will!

  • Loved the neighborhood, the place and the city. The place itself was flawless, everything needed was there, we didn't see Will but he was kindly responding to every message literally within seconds. Everything was very professionally organized.

    Would gladly stay there again.

  • La chambre de Will est située dans Dupont Circle, un super quartier. Quelques bars et restos très sympas juste à côté. La chambre reste très très calme, car donnant sur une ruelle très peu passante. Elle est très propre et confortable.
    Le seul inconvénient, ce sont les rideaux qui ne permettent pas de faire l'obscurité, mais ce n'est pas un problème majeur.
    Merci Will, nous avons passé un très bon séjour !

  • We never met Will but we got detailed instructions on how to get into the apartment. The place was great, private nice bathroom and a microwave and fridge. Good location near the Metro. Many restaurants and bars and so on by 14th street nearby. We would definitely stay here again!

  • We stayed at Will's apartment in Mid April for 3 days while on vacation and had a wonderful stay,
    Location is lovely. Will's apartment is about a 10-minute walk from the subway. Dupont Circle is a nice and safe neighborhood, with lots of restaurants and bars nearby.
    The room and bathroom are clean, light and tidy. It's definitely big and comfortable enough for two people (considering, of course, that you're probably gonna use the room mostly for sleeping). Will is very thoughtful and leaves stuff like maps and toiletries available in case you need them.
    We didn't get to meet Will but he was very nice and polite through all the times we talked.
    I would definitely recommend for anyone to stay at Will's place in DC!

Hello! ABOUT ME: I am a human rights attorney living in Washington, DC since 2004. My favorite spots in the world include the Dalmatian coast, the North Shore of Kaua'i, and the sand dune beaches in Michigan. I like traveling away from crowds, tour groups, and huge families. GUEST: This probably sounds like bragging or pandering, but I am the kind of guest that doesn't feel right unless I leave a place even cleaner than when I arrived. Even in hotels I make the bed and fold up the towels. I don't know why. HOST: As a host, I want to be sure that you have what you need and what you expect, and don't have any unpleasant surprises or unmet expectations. Again, your towels will be folded. That's just how I roll.
