Sunny, comfortable & private 1BR

Apartment - Entire home/apt · 13th St, Washington, DC 20010, United States

The Space

Make your stay in DC even more enjoyable with a lovely one-bedroom apartment to use as your own in one of DC's most hip neighborhoods!

This 700 sq ft. apartment is centrally located in Columbia Heights, in a medium-sized historic brick condo building. The apartment is bright and sunny, with five big windows bringing light to every room in the house. There's a big, soft down couch to spend time on, and a beautiful (but small!) kitchen to whip up something delicious. The large bedroom has french doors leading to the living/dining room, and has an en suite bathroom with a full bathtub. The bedroom has a king size bed (firm mattress) for your comfort. There's a pull-out bed in the couch (actually very comfortable) in case you need room for up to 2 more people.

Enjoy free wireless while you're here, and a TV with an internet-enabled Blueray DVD player. No cable TV, but I do get a lot of channels regardless, both local and international, including BBC and Al Jazeera. Free industrial-sized washer and dryer in the basement. Extremely flexible self-check-in so that we can work around your schedule.

Columbia Heights is a wonderful neighborhood to stay in. It's eclectic and energetic. The large number of young working professionals living here have attracted many great restaurants and businesses to the area. The apartment, on 13th Street, is between the two main streets in Columbia Heights. One block away is 11th Street, which is widely recognized as one of DC's most exciting upcoming streets. A number of excellent small local restaurants populate the street, from a very classy 24-hour coffee/breakfast/lunch/bar (The Coupe) restaurant, to one of DC's best pizza joints (Red Rocks), a perennial favorite pub (Meridian Pint), a BBQ place (Kangaroo Boxing Club), and a farm-to-table restaurant (Maple), among others. 14th St, where you'll find the metro and buses that run straight downtown, is a busy gathering place, with a farmer's market on Saturdays, the award winning Sticky Fingers Bakery, a Target (in case you've forgotten anything), a grocery store, Starbucks, and many other chain (primarily) restaurants. There's also great independent Thai, Vietnamese, and Central and South American restaurants and a French bakery. 14th St., further down toward town, has many interesting small shops--it's a 2 mile walk from the apartment to the White House along 14th St, and very entertaining the whole way!

Columbia Heights is an extremely convenient neighborhood as well. The apartment is just a couple blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro, buses that run straight down into the center of town (the Mall, Monuments, Museums, White House) and to other interesting parts of the city (Dupont, Georgetown) and the Circulator--a bus that will take you to Adams Morgan, the bars/clubs on U-Street, and the White House for just $1 (and runs every 10 minutes--very convenient). DC's favorite (and fastest) way of getting around town, the Capital Bikeshare, has a station a block away. I walk or Bikeshare virtually everywhere around the city. If you're a runner or enjoy hiking, the apartment is also within easy walking distance from Rock Creek Park, DC's biggest (miles and miles of trails through hills and along a beautiful river) park which has trails for hiking, biking, running and even horseback riding.

This neighborhood is one of the most convenient in DC--every main attraction is within a 1-2 mile radius, and there's always an easy way to get there without a car! Coupled with a great apartment that you'll have entirely to yourself, you are sure to have a great visit to DC.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place. Great space, great location. Would definitely stay there again. For some reason I didn't get the code to get into the apartment in my confirmation email when I booked but I would know this for next time (first experience of airbnb).

  • Sarah's place was great!!!! Easy to get in and Sarah was very easy to communicate with! Great location to walk to the metro. The beds were very comfortable and the place was very comfortable! I would definitely recommend Sarah's place, and when I return to DC, I will definitely be staying there again!!

  • It's a beautiful apartment and at a great location. Sarah was very good at communicating the instructions and general directions. We got to use the kitchen as well which is well equipped. Great bed, nice to have a HDTV with a blu ray player. Overall, a great experience. Highly recommend it.

  • Sarah's place is absolutely wonderful.
    It is at 5 to 10 min to the metro station (depending how fast you are).
    Flat is fully equiped and you would enjoy your stay here.

  • We stayed in Sarah's apartment 2 nights. We felt very safe and comfortable in her apartment and neighborhood. We enjoyed the cultural experience in the neighborhood and the fun choices of stores and restaurants a couple blocks away. It was also very convenient to take the metro train (subway) to the sites.

    November 2013
  • This is possibly the best place we ever stayed in our experience with rented apartments. I was actually looking forward to go back to it in the evenings, make dinner and relax.
    Spacious, clean, cosy, tastefully (email hidden) really had it all.
    Although Sarah was not there, she sent very clear instructions and was always available if we had any questions.
    I wholeheartedly recommend it!

  • We had a fantastic stay in Sarah's apartment. It's spacious, clean & beautifully furnished. It had everything we needed during our five-night stay and is really convenient to the Metro. Sarah is a fantastic host - she is super organised and responds quickly to queries, both of which we really appreciated. Thanks so much!

    October 2013
  • The condo was 3 blocks from the Yellow line Metro, right by Tivoli Square, near a Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, grocery store, other shops, and restaurants. We were having issues finding a location near a Metro that could accommodate our vacation dates, and Sarah immediately responded to our inquiry, and we booked it right away. Not only AFFORDABLE, but cozy, homey, super clean, with just enough room for two people to be comfortable. We had absolutely no issues with Sarah or the condo. It looked just like the pictures! Even better! Thanks to Sarah's place, I had the most memorable first time visit to D.C. I would recommend her in a heart beat.

    October 2013
  • We had the privilege of staying two nights in Sarah's apartment, and wish we could have stayed longer! It was so comfortable, clean, and cozy. The sofa bed was very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked for cooking, and the in-building laundry facilities were easily accessible. The location was conveniently located near the bus line, restaurants, and grocery stores. Neighborhood was clean and safe. Parking was a breeze. Overall a very positive experience and would not hesitate to return. The stay here really added to our DC experience! Thank you Sarah!

    October 2013
  • Sarah place was wonderful. Looks exactly as on the pictures. Very clean and tidy. It is in very convenient location- we even walked several times to White House. There is also convenient bus-circulator for just 1 dollar. We really enjoyed staying there.

Global Health
I'm a former Californian, now living in D.C. via a variety of other places (Seattle, Baltimore, Tanzania, Kenya). I work in global health, and I rent out my place while I travel the world--usually for work but sometimes for fun as well. I'm always active and love the outdoors and exploring new places. I've done a lot of exploring in D.C. in the past 2 years that I've lived here; I would be happy to give you tips on what to experience in D.C.!
