About this listing

The space

This unique. private, two level, one bedroom apartment is a converted historic carriage house near the heart of historic LeDroit Park

There is a small balcony overlooking a beautiful patio, which is accessible through the rear of the unit and great for breakfast or lounging around.

On the first floor is a dining area and kitchen that includes all the plates and utensils you might need. The range and kitchen work great if you are staying longer and want to cook. The furniture has been upgraded from what you see in the pictures.

The WiFi has a strong connection throughout the apartment. On the second floor, a 32" flat screen TV has a DirecTV connection. The full size bed has a very comfortable mattress and plenty of bedding.

Other features are bamboo flooring, part of an incipient bamboo theme that includes a bamboo desk and curtains. A beautiful clawfoot tub is a signature feature of the bathroom. Remote control blinds ensure privacy at night.

Conveniently located in the Lower U Street area, it is two and a half blocks away from the incredible Howard Theatre, four blocks away from the Shaw/Howard University Metro station, and a five - ten minute walk to the 9:30 Club and other nightlife in the heart of U Street.

I can help you with a free parking pass that will allow you to leave your vehicle anywhere in the parking zone (this is how I park). Off street parking can be arranged at an additional cost. Happy to giver recommendations on restaurants and nightlife suitable to all budgets.

Comfortably accommodates 2 people on the full size bed. The couch on the lower level also pulls out to a full size bed. More are welcome if they're willing to use a couch or an inflatable bed.

Other things to note

The price is whatever appears when you send the inquiry. I find it too complicated and time consuming to negotiate. Compared to a hotel the listed rate is an extremely good value.

Standard check in is after 3 pm and check out is by 11 am. If you want to arrive before then or stay later, please let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate.

This carriage house sits in the middle (literally) of DCs most unique neighborhoods. It has everything you need, and is surprisingly spacious. Please stay here.

Ethan and the place were great! Ethan was always super responsive and friendly. The place had a lot of character and I liked the neighborhood. It was a great place to stay in while on an extended business trip.

Ethan went above and beyond to accommodate me on short notice. The carriage house is beautiful, clean, and conveniently located. I wished I could have stayed indefinitely!

I stayed in The Carriage House over summer 2016 for 36 days. It was just perfect, best value that you can get in Washington, DC. Great location, great host, easy to live in and enjoy. The best attribute of the Carriage House is its great neighborhood. It's located in the one of the most calm and community-feeling neighborhoods. It's close to downtown, nearby the most wonderful of coffee shops, and restaurants. The metro is just a four blocks away, which makes the whole city very accessible. I will highly recommend this place.

As others have described, this is an excellent value base of operations for some time in DC. We greatly appreciated the helpful information with map about the neighborhoods surrounding the carriage house. Everything in the place was as described in the listing. It was a very pleasant oasis to come back to after some longs days of seeing the sights in the District. Highly recommended!

Ethan was a super host - the property was just as described. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. We hope that the unit will be available for our next visit to Washington, DC.

Ethan User ProfileEthan is a superhost.

Having grown up in the metro area and lived in DC for more than a decade, I'm a big fan of DC in general and LeDroit Park, my neighborhood, in particular. I'm occasionally abroad helping to provide US foreign assistance, though always available and responsive for my guests.

Happy to offer advice on the many things to do around town.
