You'll enjoy coming "home" to this small building on a quiet, tree-lined street in the heart of Washington DC yet trendy restaurants and bars are but a 1 minute walk away. Dupont Circle is one of DC's most sought-after neighborhoods!
This fully furnished 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment (approx 750 sq ft) is my personal residence when I'm in DC so you'll enjoy all the comforts of home in a setting that has loads of character. This is an older building so fixtures aren't pristine but my place will be super clean for you!
I have this listing set for minimum stays of 60 nights and max of 160 - if your dates are similar to that max/min but off a little please message me!
The apt is on the 2nd floor...up one flight of stairs from ground level.
The kitchen is stocked with organic spices and teas and you're welcome to use what's in the cupboards and fridge. I eat gluten free and modified paleo so some staples you'd expect might be missing but if you eat that way too you'll enjoy having access to some pantry items without having to buy it all at the market.
It's a full kitchen including fridge, freezer, gas stovetop and oven, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, utensils, and table to seat 2 people. Please note there is no automatic dishwasher or automatic coffee maker. There is a Melitta porcelain cone filter with 32-oz carafe to make coffee using the pour-over brewing method.
You'll have access to the free shows on Amazon Prime instant video on the HD tv, along with Comcast Xfinity basic cable channels, on-demand, and DVR.
The apartment has 2 window air conditioners and 2 ceiling fans - one of each in the living room and in the bedroom. The building/apt has a hot water radiator (heating) system...if you've never used one of those, please ask me about it...there are pros and cons! If it's important to you to be able to set a thermostat at 72 (or whatever) and forget about it you might not be happy at my place.
You'll have closet space and drawers empty for your use and there's a hair dryer here. The bed is queen-sized and has a firm memory foam mattress.
Full use of the entire apartment. Laundry room entrance is on the back of the building and there is a washer and dryer there (coin operated - I'll leave you lots of quarters!) shared by 8 apartments.
Interaction with guests
My goal is for you to have a fabulous stay at my apartment and in DC. I love advising guests on where to find activities that interest them...especially things like music and markets (farmers markets and a few flea markets). If you can't find something at the apartment please contact me! Anything at all...please contact me! I'll provide you with a "house doc" that will explain many things particular to the apartment. I'll be away while you're here but will be available by phone and email.
Other things to note
Regarding flexible check in, I will definitely be gone or leaving the day you arrive. :) I book my own plans after receiving your booking so my departure time could range from the night before to sometimes as late on your arrival date as mid-afternoon. If you want to leave luggage anytime after something like 9 or 10a that's completely ok. If you need to arrive and have the place to yourself as of a specific time, please inquire prior to booking and I'll do my best to accommodate you!
I believe in fully using things up before replacing them so will appreciate you overlooking that some of my towels are a bit shabby. Also, the laundry soap I use doesn't have fragrance in it so don't be surprised when the sheets don't smell like the ones in tv commercials do. :-)
If you have cat allergies please note that I used to have a cat so there may be some residual allergens around.
Two month minimum stay. If you've found this listing with no dates entered, Airbnb's system will indicate "strict" 50% refund with cancellation 1 week prior to arrival. That's misleading - as soon as you enter dates (with my 60 night minimum) the cancellation policy automatically becomes Long-term. Just a heads up!
Please keep noise levels in keeping with the building (which is quiet) and I appreciate guests taking good care of my things while I'm away.
No parties or gatherings, please. No additional overnight guests without host's prior approval.
Please note that my place is not suitable for children at all, not even accompanied by your guests.
No smoking is allowed anywhere in the building.
I love traveling and also relish opportunities to share my town with others. I'm really looking forward to meeting guests and hosts as our adventures continue and paths cross!
I do business management work for clients in DC and it's all online! I can work wherever I have internet so my current lifestyle is to live a few months here...a few months there. Loving my life! Thank you for helping me do this!
