Great 1br with one double bed and a comfortable futon that can also serve as a double bed, hardwood floors, lots of windows and light, AC, kitchen, dining room, bathroom in a secure building! Shared gym and laundry room conveniently located on the first floor. The apartment is quiet and sits at the back of the building, just off Adams Morgan, Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights.
Wi-Fi and flat screen TV with basic cable, Netflix and Hulu available.
The location is ideal! Not only is it in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, close to a wide range of bars and restaurants, but it's also just a five minute walk from the national zoo (admission is free) and Rock Creek Park. A perfect place to enjoy the DC nightlife, culture and nature.
Transportation: 7 minute walk from Columbia Heights Metro (green and yellow lines) and there is a bus stop right in front of the building with buses (42, 43, S4, S2) going to downtown DC.
For your convenience, there is a Safeway, Harris Teeter, CVS, 7Eleven, and DCUSA, the only mall in DC (with Target, DSW, Best Buy, Bed Bath and Beyond, Payless, Marshalls, etc.), just a 5 minute walk away.

The flat is very nicely located about 10 minutes walk from Columbia Heights metro station (Yellow/Green line) and near many Mexican restaurants. If you're used to quiet suburbs, though, I'd be cautious - the apartment has all of the "city" noise one needs to be used to sleeping through: sirens, busses, trucks, honking, and the occasional noises from neighbors - stuff ear plugs don't really block out. Of course, this can all be part of the charm too of being in the city! The water pressure in the shower is really intense (and awesome too!)
Some of the furniture has been updated since the photos were taken of the apartment, but the look and feel is generally the same.
Gilles was easy to communicate with and we'd absolutely stay in their flat again next time we visit D.C.!
Hi Mike, thank you for your feedback. I'm glad to read that you like the apartment and the furniture upgrade. I'm sorry to hear that the noise was an issue. No guests ever mentioned it before and we consider that we're actually quite lucky to live in such a green and quite neighborhood.
Gilles was a great host. He was very friendly, avaible for questions, we recceivede detailed instructions the day before we arrived (very usefull), and called the morning after our arrival to make sure everything was alright. So good experience. The appartment was clean, bright, quite calm (we were there for new year's eve and I slept like any other day !). We had a car, so we sometimes had to look around few minutes to find a parking spots, but in 4 days it wasn't parked more than a 5 minutes walk from the place. There is a Target nearby and many places to eat. Even if we didn't use them, we could see that we were very close to bus stops. So, if I had to summarize : we had a really good time, would recommend it and stay there again !
A very comfortable apartment with 10 minute walk (or less) to the Metro station and within a block of a dependable bus route. Very safe, well maintained building in an enjoyable neighborhood close to downtown but away enough to get out of the craziness when DC is over-populated when Congress is in session.
Gilles is a very responsive and responsible host!
Gilles was a great host. The place was in a great accessible neighborhood and the house was as described. You can really tell there is a cat in the household from the apt's scent. Overall, Gilles was really responsive and accommodate our requests well. It was a great place to stay to explore DC.
This is the perfect apartment for 2 people who like walking around the city. Once we found a parking space (the only challenging part of the stay) everything was just as Gilles said it would be. An easy walk into the heart of Adams Morgan, this beautiful neighborhood is a wonderful place to stay in DC.
Gillies was a great host. He was responsive both before and during my stay and make it really easy for me. The apt was clean and in a good neighborhood. I would totally recommend his place!
Great location for our sightseeing trip, with easy access to the Columbia Heights Metro station and the 16th Street buses, plus a little coffee-bagel place and a Safeway nearby on Columbia. Lots of other small restaurants and shops too. The apartment's comfortable, though we didn't spend much time there, and while it's not a charming, "cute" building, it's fine, and the neighborhood is pretty charming. We had a great time and would stay here again.
Great area, there's a Target & delicious restaurants nearby. Beautiful studio, very spacious & lots of natural light!! My sister & I had an excellent & comfortable stay here. The studio (more like a junior one-bedroom) was very clean & had all the amenities/electronics we would ever need to use. I would definitely recommend this cozy studio to anyone who is looking for a place to rest & relax comfortably after a day of exploring DC. Strong water pressure in the shower (huge plus!!). Thank you for being so accomodating, Gilles, we had a wonderful weekend!!
