Thanks for taking a look! Well appointed fully-furnished studio (my private residence) for short-term rental while I’m away. The fab rate I’m offering is because you’ll share with and care for my great cat Jupiter. Spend way less than on a hotel room and get so much more!
I’m looking for someone who needs to be in DC for about 3 months this winter. Please inquire and let me know what dates you’re looking for.
Logan Circle neighborhood has much to offer and all of central DC is at your doorstep. I’ve lived in DC since ’95 and love it! I can’t wait to share details with you once I find out what your interests are!
About 10 minutes walking:
Logan Circle (more like 3 minutes max. Nice little park – I’m looking at it from my desk!)
Whole Foods Market
14th Street district of trendy restaurants, clubs, art galleries, shops
Downtown / business district
Several gyms, including the YMCA (pool, rock climbing, racquetball, more)
Washington Convention Center
Mount Vernon Square/Convention Center metro station (yellow and green lines)
Metro Center metro station (red, orange, and blue lines)
Dupont Circle (more fab restaurants and clubs, park, boutiques, year-round farmer’s market, bookstores, metro red line)
Gallery Place/Chinatown (shops, restaurants, cinema, bowling)
McPherson Square metro (orange and blue lines)
U Street Corridor (even more restaurants, clubs, shops, incl famous 9:30 Club)
About 30 minutes walking or less:
Penn Quarter District
West End/Foggy Bottom
Trader Joe’s (easy bus back to K St & 13th St. NW – 3 blocks from my place)
George Washington University
The National Mall (museums, memorials)
The White House and Lafayette Square
Very short bus ride away or very interesting longer (30-45 min) walk through the city:
WI-FI highspeed with your laptop
View is awesome from the wall of windows of this 10th (top) floor unit
Persian rugs and art create a soothing, warm, and interesting environment
Kitchen is fully-equipped (mw/coffee maker/blender/gas range and oven/dw/no toaster, organic spices, almost gluten free)
Telephone for incoming and local (and toll-free) outgoing calls
Cable tv (no movie channels but I’d cover you to buy some on On Demand)
Dvd player and I have a small selection of films
CDs…loads of them (though not super current. I don’t buy cds any longer. Think alt rock, few classical, couple of classic rock. We can compare tastes and I’ll pull some out for you.)
Books and a few board games
Queen murphy bed (so your floor space is maximized during the day)
Washer and dryer (full size) in unit
Roof deck with beautiful views over the city in every direction
Loft-like feel with furnishings creating separate kitchen, living, and office areas
Full bath is off of the small entry hall and has a tub with shower
Bed and bath linens, paper products, laundry soap etc.
I've got my place part way through the transition from chemical-laden to as toxin-free as possible. Some issues addressed so far, some not. But you will be able to enjoy my progress.
Sofa is very comfy for naps or guest. Double air bed avail. (My "extra person" fee kicks in cos you'll need add'l bed linens.)
Access to transportation honestly couldn’t be easier. (Though if you’re in DC on business, you can reach downtown in a few minutes walking.) You can catch a cab out front or walk to one of 3 metro stops within 10-15 minutes. (These 3 stops provide access to all lines: Metro Center has red, orange, and blue; Mt. Vernon Sq/7th St/Convention Ctr has yellow and green, or McPherson Sq. has orange and blue. Bonus is Dupont Circle for the red line about a 15 minute walk in case that’s the direction you’re headed.) Major bus lines in each direction are at most 2 streets away. There are also plenty of Zipcars right in the neighborhood and several Capital Bikeshare stations very near. A cab or bus from Union Station (train) takes about 15 minutes and all 3 airports IDulles Int’l, Reagan National, and BWI) are accessible by public transportation. (Dulles is a little more arduous by public transport but it's WAY cheaper than a taxi and often quicker. I'm happy to share the details.)
Since this is my home, my stuff is (of course) in the closets and cupboards. However, I’ll clear closet space for you and have a large cupboard shelf and a few drawers available for your use.
I’m looking for a cat lover to take care of Jupiter for me (daily affection, feeding, water change, litter box scooping, occasional brushing, which he loves).
Please let me know of your interest, including your dates, and any questions. Thanks!
Very few people possess qualities that make Cynthia a first class landlady. If you are to rent from her, be assured that the guest always comes FIRST
I was her partner on our very special Drury Lane vacation home and was in daily contact with her between London & Washington DC for 5 years. Her concern for guest comfort overshadowed lust for cash, or business minded shortcuts. Such fairness kept a great vibe amongst guests and engendered trust
Organised, honest, vigilant, always contactable, polite, understanding. Accounts are kept to the last penny. Rent/commission/refunds/cleaners and every bill accurately and on time (I wish I had those attributes!)
Cynthia is hands down one of the only people I could ever do business with again. And of course... she is the perfect house-guest to whom my door is always open.
Cynthia's top-floor apartment is located in the heart of DC, close to Dupont, Logan Circle, U Street, P Street, Adams Morgan, the Capitol area, and so on. It is a lovely, cozy, tasteful, very clean place. There is a charming cat whose name is Jupiter. The well-lit space embodies a rare combination of class and coziness. There is a stunning view of the cityscape. I have always enjoyed staying in Cynthia's home. Cynthia is a smart, lovely, classy person with a lot of integrity and a professional yet kind, hospitable demeanor. I recommend this abode with highest marks and a lot of confidence.
