About this listing
My gorgeous large studio is located in Dupont Circle neighborhood, arguably the best neighborhood in DC, with a great mix of housing and retail, good connections to the city’s transportation network, and proximity to downtown. The area is very walkable, and it shows: 38% of Logan Circle residents walk all the way to their jobs... I am sure the rest ride their bikes. There is a park close by and everything is at hand, from a hardware store to CVS, gardening, bike store, bookstores, grocery stores, yoga, restaurants, banks, and much more!
THE STUDIO: The apartment is very well distributed with lots of light and beautiful 10-foot ceilings, about 400 square foot in size. It is on the third floor, is very comfortable (has a full-size bed and a full-size sofa bed for guests). Also it has a spacious closet, antique hardwood floors, and a beautiful bathroom (with a large bathtub), Comcast high-speed Internet and a small TV. You also have lovely views from the apartment onto historic Victorian townhouses in the area. It is very nicely fully furnished as I have put some time and effort to decorate it and make it home. I would like to host people that are caring and appreciate my place. The people at the building are really nice and it is calm. There is great space in the basement for keeping your bicycle safe (as in DC bikes tend to have a short term life span...) I enjoy much doing my laundry at Swift cleaners in 17 and R or at MacDee cleaners at 1408 P Street.
NEIGHBORHOOD: The neighborhood is very safe, convenient, trendy, yet quiet. There are many art galleries, high-end furniture and home goods stores, great restaurants and bars, organic food stores, yoga, and lounges with nice terraces for having a drink after work, etc. Also, the 14th Street corridor is just one block away with some of the best restaurants, music halls, clubs, and other cool hangout places of the city. Also, on P Street, there is a Whole Foods market, a hardware store, a Wells Fargo bank, any many other stores and restaurants.
TRANSPORTATION: For metro access, the place is 5 blocks to McPherson Square (blue/orange), 6 blocks to Dupont Circle or 7 to Farragut North (red), and 6 blocks to Shaw/Howard or 7 to U Street (green). You also have the circulator (bus) that takes you straight downtown, but also connecting Logan Circle and Adams Morgan by way of U Street. In addition, the 52/53/54 buses run pretty frequently along 14th Street, connecting the neighborhood to Columbia Heights, Downtown, and L’Enfant Plaza. Also, a large number of ZipCar stations are close by and a Capital bikeshare station is at 14th Street and Rhode Island Avenue.
Thanks and enjoy!

We have had a great experience at Alexandra's place. Everything was as explained on the website. Excellent communication to get in and out. We recommend other people to stay there.
The location was great - short walk to restaurants and stores. Lovely neighborhood. The apartment was simple but clean and met all of our needs.
I had a great time staying at Alexandra's. The apartment is located in a great area. There are tons of things to do nearby and lots of great food options. Alexandra provided towels, shampoo, and soap which was really nice. The apartment is a studio, so it's the perfect fit for a couple or someone traveling alone. Needless to say, I'd stay here again if I were in DC.
Alexandra's place was a delight. Tidy, spacious and great natural light. Dupont circle is a cool area which I'd like to see more of. The metro is only 10 minutes away and there are plenty of grocery stores etc within the area. Alexandra was efficient with checking in with us to ensure we had found the place properly and were enjoying our stay. She is prompt to reply and flexible with questions/requests we might have had. A good time all round.
Alexandra was very easy to communicate with and flexible, and her flat was beautiful and quite spacious. We really appreciated how tidy her flat was and that she made plenty of room for us so we didn't feel we were intruding. Perfect for a couple. And honorable mention for the fast WiFi!
We had a lovely time in Washington and at the apartment. The apartment was in a lovely neighbourhood, close to nice restaurants and a good walk to the main attractions. The apartment was lovely and communication with Alexandra was easy.
Had a great stay in the apartment. The apartment was clean, spacious and very light. Closeby to everything you need in a city like Washington. Alexandra was always quick in responding my questions before and during my stay. Perfect arranged pick-up of the keys, even when my flight was delayed.
