The Space

My condo is a gorgeous and serene light-filled space among the trees with soaring 14-foot ceilings, panoramic views overlooking Rock Creek Park and the National Cathedral, a toasty working fireplace, private rooftop deck, gas grill, full kitchen, washer/dryer, 42” HDTV (60 channels), speedy Internet, marble bathroom with cascading overhead shower, contemporary furniture, comfy queen bed, and more.

The Mount Pleasant neighborhood is an historic district in the heart of it all. There is quick and easy access to the Metro, cabs and bus lines that will take you anywhere in the city and suburbs, and a wide range of dining and shopping options.

Do you like to walk? A 10-15 minute stroll gets you to the National Zoo, Rock Creek Park, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, and Meridian Hill Park. Another few minutes and you are in Dupont Circle, Cleveland Park, Woodley Park, the U Street corridor, and Logan Circle. At 40 minutes or so you can walk to Georgetown, the National Mall, White House, and Smithsonian museums.

I have a queen bed in the bedroom, and a long, deep sofa that can be arranged into a queen bed or kept as two single beds. I also have an inflatable queen mattress, if you like.

Plenty of bedding, towels, and wash cloths.

My place is amazing. Please be gentle to it and be kind to my neighbors :)

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Amos's place is beautiful - and perfectly located in the middle of Mt. Pleasant, my favorite neighborhood in DC. I spent a very pleasant month in his penthouse apartment. It addition to being clean, comfortable and spacious, the pad has fast wifi, a washer and dryer and a very nice kitchen with gas stove. I can't recommend the place enough.

  • Amos was super easy to work with, flexible, relaxed, etc.
    The apartment was fantastic. Great location, close to everything we wanted or needed. Even though we were in D.C. to visit our son and his girlfriend, we all loved the apartment, fireplace, windows, (website hidden). so much,that we stayed in all three nights watching the olympics, drinking wine, and enjoying the fire-place. It was all very yummy.

  • Amos was a fantastic host -- flexible on check in and check out and accommodated our dog. The apartment is just as described and very comfortable. Lots of space, especially considering the location, and an amazing shower. My best airbnb experience to date!

  • A wonderful vacation in a perfect location. The apartment is easy access, spacious and very comfortable. Amos made us feel welcome when we checked in early. We enjoyed reading the history of Mt. Pleasant in the book he left. Soft linens and lots of clean towels. Open the windows, sit back and relax in the evening breezes. We'd love to return.

  • The place is spacious, well decorated and modern. Amos is a very friendly guy. He responded quickly to all our questions. The location is good (plenty of buses around the corner plus the Columbia Heights metro station 10 minutes away walking). There are lots of big retail stores next to the metro station (e.g. Best Buy, Giant, Target), which is very convenient. If you like latin food, the place is surrounded by great places to grab a bite (Peruvian, Dominican, Cuban, etc.). The zoo is 10 minutes away walking, which was a big plus for us: the zoo is amazing and also free! (we went there every weekend).

  • Amos' apartment is amazing. So comfortable and spacious. And convenient to everything (restaurants, metro, bus)! Amos is a great host as well with super clear communication about the building.

  • For my first experience using Airbnb I have to give the service an A. For my experience with Amos I give him an A+. In short, Amos was welcoming, punctual, responsive, and fun. Amos was a fantastic host that provided clear instructions for operating his unit, pointed out running trails, and local eateries. His penthouse sits in a great location and offers all the amenities to make for a comfortable if not lavish DC experience. Being in town for the second Inauguration for President Obama was an exciting and fun-filled weekend for a small group of us, and Amos’ apartment felt like home away from home – truly comfortable. I definitely plan stay at his boutique penthouse for future DC travel.
    p.s. the shower is a little slice of heaven.

  • This is a lovely, spacious, light filled apartment with a well appointed kitchen and a cozy gas fireplace. The Mt. Pleasant neighborhood is fun and hip with lots of quaint restaurants and shops. If you prefer to shop at Target or Bed Bath and Beyond those are nearby too. The building was very quiet and the bar downstairs is a fun place to hang out. It is a quick bus or metro ride to the Capitol, museums etc. Amos was a fantastic host and was quick to respond to all of our questions. We would definitely stay here on future visits to DC.
