About This Listing
This is a well-lit lower-level apartment in the historic LeDroit Park neighborhood. It is close to U Street, two blocks from the Howard Theatre, and three blocks from the Shaw Metro.
The apartment has a washer and dryer en suite and a spacious, fully equipped kitchen with all the plates and utensils you might need. The range and kitchen are ideal if you are staying longer and want to cook.
The WiFi has a strong connection throughout the apartment and the a 32" flat screen TV has a DirecTV connection. The full size bed has a comfortable mattress and plenty of bedding.
I can provide a parking pass that will allow you to leave your vehicle anywhere in the parking zone. But why drive? It a five to ten minute walk to the 9:30 Club and other nightlife in the heart of U Street. Happy to give recommendations on restaurants and nightlife suitable to all budgets.
Comfortably accommodates 2 people on the full size bed and the futon folds down for additional guests. 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 was a great stay and Ethan was a great host. I had some questions prior to my arrival and he was very quick to respond. The location was perfect, close to the metro and just as described. The location was very quiet and very spacious. Ethan contacted me beforehand to see if there was anything I needed. He then met us during our stay and again asked if we needed anything. Our flight to leave was late in the day and he was great with holding our luggage in order for us to get one more day of siteseeing. The place was very clean. This location has a bedroom and a futon that were both comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Ethan for everything.
My husband and I enjoyed our five night stay at Ethan's 1 bedroom apt. Lots of great places to eat and drink are within a short (website hidden) books in the apt. were helpful .Ethan came and introduced himself on our second evening. He has a genuine interest in ensuring that guests enjoy their stay.
Ethan was very accommodating. He was quick to respond to the reservation request and provided a very nice booklet which identified exactly how to get to the row house as well as other things in the area to do. He accommodated an early check in and getting and returning the key was very easy. Cleanliness however left a lot to be desired. I am not a clean nut but dust bunnies the size of grapefruit in the living area, hair in the bathroom corners, and general dust on the floor is unacceptable. The nightstand and other flat surfaces had not been dusted or thoroughly wiped clean. When we went to use the futon it was obvious someone had eaten chips on it and it had not been cleaned. The microwave was dirty. There was a coffee filter and coffee grinds left in the coffee maker. There were two blankets to be used on the futon. One had hair on it. The other was not full size. Not sure why the place was not clean, especially having to pay a cleaning fee of $75, but it was not. Unfortunately the uncleanliness of the space was both unexpected and disappointing.
I did not inspect the condition of the apartment before the cleaner left and Janet arrived. Yet I have no reason to believe its state was any different than previous guests, who positively describe the level of cleanliness in their reviews. Had Janet given me any inkling of her concerns - her only communication was that the apartment was satisfactory - the issue would have been addressed immediately through any number of remedies, from bring the cleaner back, replacing the lines, or adjusting the fee, among other possibilities. I can only assume that she is at best a poor communicator or worse duplicitous or delusional.
I've stayed at Ethan's place three times now, and always had a great experience. It's clean, quiet, beautiful, and the neighborhood is just fantastic. Absolutely unreservedly recommend.
Great experience with the apartment and the owner. Ethan was always very responsive and happily accommodated my requests such as providing a cleaner once a week for a small charge and letting me check out late. Check in and out were very easy. The apartment was clean and cozy. The neighborhood is now booming with new restaurants and coffee shops and is becoming more and more trendy with a hipstery touch. I would definitely go back.

About the Host, Ethan
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.
