The Space

I am offering my cozy English garden apartment, located in Adams Morgan, in the thriving heart of DC!

The apartment is in great shape and will be a very comfortable place for you (and your friends /family) to stay in. The apartment is a one bedroom, one bath English basement in DC’s historic Adams Morgan neighborhood. The 700 + sq/ft apartment features a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, central heat and air, full kitchen, a large and sunny bedroom with a queen-size bed, TV/DVD, and wireless internet connection. There is also a big couch that pulls out into a queen-size bed. The apartment has a semi-separate dressing room with large closet you can use to hang clothes. Clean towels and linens will be provided for you as well!

Bathroom: The bathroom has a full tub. And of course you could just use it for a shower. A hairdryer is also provided.

The refrigerator is medium sized: feel free to stock any small kitchen supplies. The stove/oven is electric and works great. There are 4 burners, a microwave, a toaster and a kettle and a coffee machine that you should feel free to use.

I have a washer/dryer you will be able to use as well.

No smoking, heavy partying or pets are permitted.

** Please DO NOT book before contacting me. Availability may not be reflected on the online calendar. **

Location:

The apartment is situated just a short block from the Adams Morgan neighborhood hotspots of 18th Street’s restaurants and nightlife. There is quick access to public transportation (bus stops are a two minute walk away) and it is easy to get to wherever you may want to go during your time here. It's also just 2-miles from the mall and an easy walk to two metro lines (about 15 minutes to the green/yellow line on U Street, 12 minutes to the Red line in Woodley Park and 15 minutes to the red line in Dupont Circle).

You will be located four minutes from a Harris Teeter grocery shop, and about 5 minutes from a Safeway and a "Yes" organic shop. Street parking may be available, though I do not have a designated one. There are a few parking garages nearby that cost about $25 per day(this is a popular neighborhood, especially on weekends).

A two-night night minimum stay is required (if more than seven nights, there is a weekly rate).

If interested, I would be happy to answer any questions, upload more photos of the apartment and discuss arrangements.

Please click "Contact Host" and send me a note if you're thinking of coming to the area. I prefer this to simply receiving a booking request that I only have the option of accepting or declining! :)

I'd be happy to offer you some tour and nightlife tips when you're here as well!

Interaction with Guests

I usually meet guests with keys, or arrange for neighbor/friend to meet them upon check in.

  • Ami à été très prévenant et la location
    Est très bien situé, nous avons passé trois belles journées

  • Ami was very helpful. The apartment is so close to the lovely Adams Morgan 18th street that we ended up going out for more meals than we expected and it is also very cool even on hot days. I would definitely check with Ami next time we're in DC.

  • I stayed at Ami's apartment in DC for 3 nights. Upon arrival, myself and my two friends were greeted by Ami and he showed us the apartment, gave us a wealth of helpful tips about the area and DC at large, and furthermore took us for a tour of the neighborhood. He was extremely pleasant and easily contactable at any time. The place itself was extremely clean, very spacious, and in an amazing location in the heart of Adams Morgan. The neighborhood had an abundance of places to eat and drink, and a great social atmosphere. It was very easy to get to the Mall strip from Ami's place and see all the sights. If I ever come back to DC again I will definitely try to stay at his place, it was a fantastic experience!

  • We had a fine week staying at Ami’s apartment. It was quiet despite being around the corner from a very busy part of the neighborhood. The neighborhood was fun to walk around, and we enjoyed the people we met. Ami’s apartment was an easy walk from just about anything we needed. Stores are close, bus stops are close, even the Metro is relatively close. Dupont Circle is a pleasant stroll away, as is Meridian Hill Park. There are several options nearby for picking up Capital Bikeshare bicycles, including one near the zoo that’s convenient to the Rock Creek Trail for an easy ride down to the Lincoln Memorial. Ami’s apartment was comfortable on the hottest days without having to run the A/C much at all. Gabby got us going, Ami checked in with us, and we felt comfortable and safe. We would stay again (assuming Ami will have us).

  • We live in the DC area but were spending the weekend downtown. The apartment was exactly as advertised -- clean, cozy, comfortable and convenient. Ami met us and gave us the orientation to the apartment and neighborhood. He was helpful and informative. We would definitely rent this unit again!

  • Ami was super friendly, and nice to talk to. The apartment is perfectly located and easily accessible with public transit. It is also very spacious and quite. I enjoyed my stay there and can fully recommend the apartment.

    January 2012
  • This was a very good stay for us. It is very convenient to everywhere in the city and for us, was just a few blocks away from where our daughter lives so it was perfect.
    The apartment itself is nice and has all the amenities one needs, actually even more than we needed. Ami is very committed to energy conservation as we are so we did not mind his asking that the thermometer be turned down or the heater turned off when we left the apartment for the day. However, because we were away so much it did mean the furniture and walls etc took a while to warm up when we returned. Nonetheless, we were very cozy.
    Ami was very friendly, cordial and anxious to help us with any information we might need. Our only reason for not checking 5 stars on the rating is that he came by the apartment when we were not there. We would have prefered he not do that but if he needed to, as he did to pick up slippers and to drop off keys with the neighbors , we would have liked a notice of it as landlords are required to do generally.

    Apart from that, it was perfect.

    Response from Ami:

    I was quite surprised to see the above comment, as all of the guests that have stayed at my place to date have had good experiences, and left great reviews. I would like to comment on them:
    Indeed, I came by my place on the to leave off an extra pair of keys that both myself and the guests had agreed was needed – I clearly remember telling them that I would stop by and leave the keys. I had ringed the bell and knocked on the door, of course, as I never would just walk in when guests are staying at my place. No one was home, and I let myself in. In no instance would I have compromised my guests privacy, and I do not understand why they would be offended by such a visit.

  • My colleges and I enjoyed our stay in Washington a lot! many thanks to Ami! It was very comfortable in the flat, we could find there everything we need for every day life. The location is perfect: metro is very close, bars and restaurants as well. Ami explained very well all the directions, that even during the first evening it was very easy to orientate. you'll definitely like staying at this area and with sucha a great host!

  • The apartment was in a very vibrant neighborhood, with many little shops and great ethnic cuisine. It was a good size, with a comfortable couch. The bedroom had an extra dressing room, which was nice for spreading out the luggage and unpacking without crowding living space. Ami gave us full use of his kitchen and cooking tools, which was nice as there are grocery stores nearby and we were able to prepare many of our own meals.

    November 2011
  • Ami's place is clean, comfortable and well-located. It's much more spacious than the "cozy" description and the photograph lets on, with a living room, full kitchen, bath, bedroom and dressing room. We slept very well on the bed. Ami also has an easy to use washer and dryer in his apt.

    Ami was waiting for us when we arrived, showed us around the apt., explained how to connect to WiFi, where to get buses and shop, etc. He has DC maps and brochures for the use of his guests. There's shopping around the corner on Kalorama (sign up for their free discount card!) and on Columbia. Lots of restaurants in Adams Morgan ranging from pricey to amazingly reasonable (like Amsterdam Falafel).

    There are excellent transportation connections to all parts of the city. From Ami's place It's easy to connect to the Red Line Metro at Woodley Park. The L2 bus leaves every 20-30 min. from the 18th St and Belmont bus stop which is a 3 minute walk toward Woodley Park in one direction, and toward MacPherson Circle on the other side of the street. At 18th and Columbia, a 5-7 min. walk, there are also DC Circulator buses to Woodley Park Metro and points north, as well as southbound, that leave every 10 minutes late into the night.

    When we arrived we took the Yellow Line directly from Reagan Airport to U-Street and walked to Ami's place with our rollaboard bags. It was a longer and more strenuous walk than we had anticipated, so on the way back we took a cab back to the Yellow Line Metro. It was well worth the $8 plus tip for ourselves and our luggage, especially since it was raining. (If you take the Red Line to/from the airport you will have to change trains.)

    All in all Ami's a great place to stay and he is a wonderful host. The only caveat about Ami's apt. would be for someone who is physically challenged or has difficulty climbing stairs, as there are a few steep brick steps going down to and up from Ami's apt. But we didn't have a problem.

    We had a great time and would happily stay at Ami's again on a future visit to DC.
