About this listing
I offer a clean and simple studio in the heart of Logan Circle, DC's most centrally located and hippest neighborhood. If you are searching for an affordable, easily accessible place look no further!
This first floor studio apartment is in Logan Circle, one of DC's most centralized neighborhoods famous for unique restaurants and nightlife. This building is an easy walk from the monuments, museums, White House and three metro stops. The apartment has shiny hardwood floors, lots of natural light and comes with an internet connection. Their is a window air conditioning unit that is very powerful and can be set to whatever temperature keeps you comfortable. Street parking is available overnight but is only 2 hours between 7AM and 9PM. However for an extra $30 I can get you a two week visitor parking pass which allows you to park all day on the street. I love welcoming people and connecting them to the sights and attractions that this great city has to offer.
The building itself is a medium sized apartment complex - 5 floors with an old elevator. It is a blue collar building, nothing fancy and filled with a diverse mix of young professionals and families .
Responding to recent guest feedback I have rearranged the living/sleeping area of the apartment swapping out older more bulky furniture for newer, sleeker items. Friends and family now agree the place feels much cleaner and spacious. Most importantly the room boasts a very comfortable, new queen-sized bed.
For travelers with computers and tablets with them I also have an HDTV television equipped with an HDMI cable so you can relax to a movie or television series streamed from your device.
Interaction with Guests
Very little. I set things up as much as possible so guests come and go without being bothered. I am happy to grab a beer though with guests if they would like to talk to a local! Just let me know!!
One of the hottest neighborhoods in DC. 14th street is a quick 3 min walk away and is the epicenter of DC's food and bar revival! It is also a central point to other areas of interest in the city including the mall, downtown, Dupont Circle and the U st area.
Close to Mt. Vernon Plaza metro (.33 miles), Mcpherson Square (.6miles) and Dupont and Metro Center (.9 miles). You are within walking distance to all major metro lines. You are only a little more than a mile from the heart of downtown and the mall and can take buses easily as well to get to most hot spots! Cabs and Ubers are also easy to come by and one rarely waits more than 5 minutes. There is also a Capital Bikeshare, (website hidden), for folk who prefer to bike, only two blocks away at 11th and M.
Other Things to Note
Sometimes the neighbors/ first floor location can make the apartment a bit loud during the afternoon but it has always been quiet during the night. My place is a better spot for people looking for a no frills, comfortable spot in a great central location. People who plan to spend most of their time in the room, and are looking for a hotel like experience should definitely look elsewhere.
Please keep noise to reasonable levels and no smoking in the unit! Besides that enjoy!
The apartment was neat, tidy and functional. It was good value for the area. Charlie was very helpful with communication and assisted us with our needs. Wifi was very useful.
Charlie was a great host and provided detailed instructions on how to enter his apartment.
Although the decor was slightly different from the pictures, the apartment had everything we needed. At times the neighbours were very noisy as the walls are thin, but they were quieter late at night. The HDMI cable didn't work so there was no television but this wasn't a big issue as we were out and about most of the time! The location was awesome, so close to downtown and all the museums at the mall!
Thanks heaps! :)
Simple, basic (not quite as much furniture as pictured), and a good little studio apartment for a one night stop in Washington, Charlie was very friendly and helpful, providing local advice on where to eat and drink on his welcome sheet and clear insturctions on where to go in town.
Charlie's place is comfortable and neat. We didn't meet but all the instructions to get and leave the keys were clear enough.
I would certainly recommend.
This apartment is close to main Washington attractions, as Chalie said, awesome Location.
This apartment is roomy and the bed is very god.
I think the weakest point is cleanliness.
Charlie was pleasant and addressed several minor issues in a timely way. We only communicated via email. The studio itself is very basic--a bed, small bathroom and kitchen. Towels and sheets were clean upon arrival. The Airbnb photos of the studio include a desk, a chair and chest of drawers that are not there now so the seating is limited to the bed and the one white chair in the photo. In the bedroom area there is only one light--an overhead fixture. A bedside lamp would be useful.
Location is within walking distances of lots of restaurants, and the 14th St. shopping area including Whole Foods. About a 7 minute walk from Mt. Vernon Metro Station.
We had a really nice trip. The location was perfect and the flat was clean and . Thank you charlie

About the Host, Charlie
I am a Washington DC native who grew up in the city and have spent most of the last ten years in my home town when not living abroad in Africa, Latin America, or Europe.
I am currently a government consultant here in town and travel a decent amount so would love to rent my place out to respectful individual who can use my great location to see all this amazing city has to offer!
