The Space

Welcome to DC!

I am thrilled to share my Dupont Circle apartment and hometown with you.

The Apartment:
This is a one-bedroom apartment with TWO parking spaces on a quiet side street in one of most famous neighborhoods in Washington, DC. It is situated between Rock Creek Park and the actual circle of Dupont Circle. You can walk to almost everything needed in life – public transit (Metrorail redline and orangeline 3 blocks away; Metrobus stops within 2 blocks in all directions), restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, grocery stores, parks, bookstores, banks, dry cleaning, hair/nail/massage salons, pet stores, and nightlife. The apartment is part of a lovely complex with tranquil courtyard and includes a balcony through the bedroom’s French doors perfect for drinks and sunset views. The bedroom/office space receives gorgeous southern light and the living room looking out on the courtyard provides a calming space to escape the busy city.

  • This was my first time using Airbnb and I had a wonderful experience. Suzie, the host of the apartment, and the apartment's easy access to transportation, restaurants and shopping, easily makes this rental one of the best!

    From the get-go, Suzie was very open and communicative and always took the time to answer my questions about the apartment, both prior to my stay and during it. Her detailed descriptions about the apartment and the close attractions (listed on Airbnb and in the packet she emails/leaves for you at the apartment) were very helpful, which meant that all I had to do was show up (which I could in a car thanks to the TWO parking spots!) and have fun!

    This place was perfect for my needs and whenever I head back to DC I know where I will stay!

About
I am an emergency physician who loves to explore the world, engage in businesses ventures, and put thoughts down on paper. I live in DC now but am about to begin the ultimate partnership of marriage with a lovely Australian and will soon embark on a bi-continental life. I was raised in DC, educated in Boston (Harvard x 2), trained in San Francisco (Stanford), and returned to my DC roots to start an emergency medicine career. I run a business that helps pre-meds get into medical school and also work for a medical device start up to provide power-free, portable sterilization in the developing world. Triathlons help blow off steam and chic flicks/Glee marathons put life back into perspective.
