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.
Place was great- functional- exactly as described and perfect for my in-and-out trip to Washington DC.
This location was very close to all of the greatest landmarks. You can take a cab, rent bicycles, or walk to get pretty much anywhere. The apartment was relatively clean and just enough space for a couple. Charlie gave us all of the information we needed beforehand and even had a printed "Welcome" sheet with all of the information we would need. The description was accurate and the area was nice. The parking pass helped a lot, just make sure to park before 5PM weekdays to get a good spot! Would stay here again!
The apartment was not as nice as pictured but it was clean. I appreciated the leniency Charlie had with checking in and out. The neighborhood is close to a lot of good restaurants but i wouldn't feel safe walking alone at night.
The apartment is basically at its shows on the profile. Is clean enough and in a good location. We have no chance of meeting Charlie, but everything was ready when we arrived. He left a paper with very interesting things to do.
Charlie was very helpful with directions and instructions. The apartment was very clean and exactly as pictured / described. Great for a short trip!
Did not meet Charlie but glad that he was able to accomodate our flexible arrival time by having the key in a lockbox outside. we had no trouble getting in and the place was just as described. Would recommend for anyone who needs a place to crash with a great location.
Charlie was a Helpful host and the apartment was as described. I can totally recommend it.

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!
