This is a recently renovated lovely 700 square foot apartment located on the entire lower level of a home in the close-in Palisades Village neighborhood of Washington, DC. It features an open living room and dining space with working fireplace, bamboo floors and large windows facing your private garden. The dining room seats 4 and there is a writer’s desk to work at so you don’t have to take over the dining table. The fold out sofa can accommodate 1 to 2 additional guests. The home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with unrestricted street parking in front of the house. Walk down gradual stairs along the side of the house to the rear entrance (pictured).
The bedroom features large windows facing the garden and an ultra-comfortable queen bed to ensure a great nights’ sleep after a long day of sightseeing or meetings. There is plenty of storage room for your clothing in 2 closets and a dresser. The Zen-like bath is really spectacular and features a Japanese style soak tub, glass sink and a separate pebbled floor shower.
Enjoy a morning coffee or meal alfresco on the patio in your private garden particularly in the spring and summer when the flowers are in glorious bloom and the melodious sound the fountain transports you far from city life. The garden is lovely and welcoming, the plantings however are fragile, so it is not suitable for use by dogs or very young children. We wish to preserve its beauty for the enjoyment of all our guests!
You will enjoy WIFI and a new wall mounted HDTV with full cable. To make your stay more comfortable the water is on a filtration system and there is a portable HEPA air filter for the benefit of those with seasonal allergies.

There is also a full sized washer & dryer in the apartment, go home with clean clothes!

My wife and I and our Australian Shepherd recently enjoyed a two-week stay in Tranquil Glade. The apartment is comfortable and the location in the Palisades district is great. We were driving and found this area to be within proximity of many interesting places, including Great Falls National Park in VA, wonderful countryside destinations in Maryland, and easy access to downtown DC and all the Capitol attractions. We enjoyed getting to know Susan and appreciated her hospitality and responsiveness, even receiving a floral delivery on our behalf. The apartment itself is roomy enough for two people and the small kitchen is adequate for informal food preparation. One drawback to an apartment situated in a walk-out basement of a home like this is the inability to personally control heat and A/C, and while Susan was quick to make adjustments for us, we found it inconvenient and difficult to achieve an ideal temperature with wide swings in the outside climate during our stay. During periods of more consistent weather this may not have been an issue.
My husband and I had a fantastic stay at Tranquil Glade! The hostess was very organized and provided us with all information we needed well before our arrival (including a "visitor's manual" that was incredible helpful!!). The apartment was very clean, comfortable, cool, and quiet with all ammenities. I commuted to a conference in the center of DC every day, and had no problem taking one of the buses back at any hour. The garden was lovely for pre- dinner appetizers and beer. We would recommend this place 100% for anyone who would like a relaxing stay with easy access to downtown.
I had never booked with airbnb before, but Charlotte made it so easy. I did not get to meet her, or Susan the property owner, but felt very at home anyway. Kevin - who did help me at the location was wonderful and considerate. It was my birthday and he and Charlotte even left me a birthday gift! I was sorry to have to leave, I enjoyed my stay - it was truly a Tranquil getaway. I look forward to renting again from Charlotte and airbnb :-) and also there was a super sweet black and white cat who came to visit me at the location - who does she belong to? I wanted to steal her she was so sweet! Charlotte was that you? Turning into a cat to watch over me? Life Prof McGonigall on Harry Potter? xxx
We, a family of 3, had a wonderful 1 week stay in Tranquil Glade. The apartment is perfect, very nice and clean and was exactly what we needed. Everything is in perfect shape and the kitchen is fully equipped, which made us cook dinner a couple of days. The area is very nice and peaceful and small shops and very nice restaurants are just around the corner, walk of 5 minutes. Susan is such a nice and helpful host, and we also enjoyed the company of her nice cat “Hemingway”, who discretely stayed outdoors. Bus stops are just at the corner and with the help from Susan’s descriptions it was easy to get around, both to Georgetown, Great Falls and downtown DC. We can strongly recommend Tranquil Glade.
My husband, daughter and I stayed here for a week. We loved it. It is right off the bus line which makes getting anywhere easy. (Consider purchasing a weekly bus card at the CVS just down the road.)We found that the online pictures were an accurate representation of this lovely apartment. We enjoyed sitting ouside on the patio in the morning. The patio/yard is private and you have it all to yourself. Susan was accommodating and friendly, but also respected our privacy. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
I'm moving to DC, and I needed a place to work from while I looked for a permanent residence. This suited my needs perfectly, and Susan was a very gracious host. I'm grateful to Charlotte for connecting me, and very thankful to have had such a nice place to welcome me to the city!
