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.
I truly enjoyed my stay at Charlie's place. I contacted him to stay very last minute and he was very nice about opening his place to me and my friend. We never met him but we truly enjoyed the place and it exactly as advertised. Will definitely recommend to anyone.
Place was nice and as advertised. Charlie was very responsive. Would definitely recommend. Excellent location!
The apartment was really nice and clean and very well located. Everything was as decribed. The communication with Charlie was perfect. Thanks
the apartment is really nice and clean, and the bed is perfect. we arrived at 3：30pm, and met the last guest, otherwise it would be a little difficult to find the key box. there is manual paper in the desk, on which there has wifi code and some instructions. Charlie was not there, but he replied on time.
The location was great. He had a great form that detailed things like places to eat and information on the stay, which was really nice. I did request an early check in which he said was okay; however, there was a discrepancy between him and the house keeper and place was clean in time before we came. He soon got it fixed upon our request.
Overall the place is really good if your looking for good location and minimal stay inside the actual apartment. Just ensure the sheets are clean!
evrything was ok. a little bit complicated to find the key and to get in touch with the owner. the place is small but close to important places.
