About this listing
This is a lovely 1 br (bedroom + living room) in Adams Morgan on a quiet street in the middle of the city. Quick access to the National Mall, White House and museums, and lots of fun restaurants/bars near the apartment. Sleeps 1-4 comfortably!
I am offering my cozy English garden apartment, located in Adams Morgan, in the thriving heart of DC!
IMPORTANT: 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! :)
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. **
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.
I'd be happy to offer you some tour, restaurant and nightlife tips when you're here as well!
Guests have access to the full apartment.
Interaction with guests
I usually meet guests with keys, or arrange for neighbor/friend to meet them for check in.
Adams Morgan spills over with hipsters, salsa fans and revelers in this come-as-you-are nightlife hot spot. The main thoroughfare, 18th Street, features a mix of cool cat bars, raucous music venues and Latin-infused lounges. Locals love the neighborhood for its late-night scene, quirky boutiques and global cuisine.
The colorful and eclectic Adams Morgan neighborhood exists along a mile-long stretch of 18th Street. Thanks to a flood of new restaurants, lounges and live music venues, the ultra-laid-back locale has continued its 20-plus-year reign as a nightlife epicenter. But visitors of all ages are just as likely to while away an afternoon at an independent shop, coffee house or nearby park.
The apartment is located in Adams Morgan,one of the best neighborhoods in town, but close to the historic center of DC - only 10-15 min by bus or Metro from the National Mall. There are bus stops on the block of where you will be staying, and the red and green Metro stations are a short walk from the place.
