Overview

About the property

Sunny two-bedroom with eat-in kitchen, fireplace, and parking. Pets allowed.

One of the most preferred neighborhoods in DC, this Dupont Circle brownstone rests on a tree-lined street and features fine dining within walking distance. The 3-unit, turn-of-the-century brownstone sits conveniently near Embassy Row, museums, salons, and shopping. Even better, nearby restaurants and bistros abound.

This is one of two lovely VRBO units in this three unit brownstone managed by experienced VRBO hosts.

Attractive, recently remodeled large duplex features hardwood floors, exposed brick, fireplace, spacious living room, sunny eat-in kitchen, and high-speed internet. On the second level are 2 bedrooms and the bathroom. A small private garden in the back offers southern exposure, with a lovely pear tree and a barbeque. Complimentary coffee and tea.

New furnishings are accented with contemporary decor. The well-stocked kitchen holds every pot, pan, or spatula needed to design your own delicious meals. For extra convenience, the washer-and-dryer unit will come in handy on steamy summer afternoons.

The living room, bright and sunny, features a new 46" Smart TV that includes basic cable, Apple TV, Netflix, and Hulu. The eat-in kitchen opens on to a private garden. Lightly decorated bedrooms upstairs feature a queen-sized in one and a double bed in the other.

Wifi and privacy makes this duplex makes it perfect for the business traveler.

Steps from the front door you will find a grocery store, a Rite-Aid, a dry cleaner, and yoga studios. Just a few blocks beyond enjoy gourmet restaurants, theatre, and shopping in all directions from Connecticut Avenue (a main thoroughfare) to 14th Street (a fashionable boulevard). After lunch or dinner you can enjoy a leisurely walk along Embassy Row.

Just minutes away, the architecturally magnificent DC subway will transport guests to the most popular sites: the Smithsonian, the Capitol, world renowned monuments and Arlington Cemetery, to name a few. The White House is a brisk 10-minute walk. Or, if you're feeling athletic rent a bike just around the corner and peddle your way through the city at a leisurely place through historic and scenic Rock Creek Park (14 miles end-to-end).

Our personal favorite “monument” is Nationals’ ball park, on the subway line.

About Deb Narcisso

We are delighted to share our home with guests from around the world. Our family has lived in Dupont Circle for over twenty years and it is our great pleasure to welcome new visitors to the tourist wonderland of Washington DC. We ourselves enjoy the cultural enclaves of this international city.

Most importantly, since 2005, we have thanked our lucky bats and balls that the "Nationals" is the city's official baseball team.

Deb Narcisso purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Deb Narcisso chose Washington DC

The property caught our eye because of the stately tree-lined neighborhood and the centrally located urban environment. We know our neighbors, who share our enthusiasms for nearby restaurants, an intra-city Rock Creek Park, walking tours, and world renown museums.

Perfect place to break our road trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us to break our road trip; after several nights in motels, the comfort, extra space and laundry facilities were much appreciated. The super location meant that we could leave our car in the parking place and either walk or use the nearby public transport to the National Mall. We found all the descriptions to be very accurate and highly recommend this rental!

Never felt so at home, away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This rental property was more than we could have imagined. The beds were incredibly comfortable. Ample sheets, towels, and pillows. The home was supplied with everything and anything we could possibly need! It made our stay so easy and comfortable.

Only suggestion: Mirrors in the bedrooms would be nice for doing hair and makeup while someone else showers!

Overall, a fantastic rental!

Great location near Dupont Circle--could use a little help

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment that was clean and very convenient.

It could use a few more amenities--like a place to put a suitcase in each bedroom. There is neither a bureau nor a luggage rack. (We ended up bringing two folding chairs up from downstairs, so we didn't have to get down on the floor each time we needed something from our suitcases.) The lighting in the bedrooms for reading is inadequate, but it would be easy to replace it with a bedside table and a tall lamp. Finally--some towel racks would be a great improvement. We were two adult women, and one small towel rack did not begin to suffice.

Investing in better toilet paper would also be a great idea! (Costco's brand is great--and it would supply you with lots of back ups.)

We loved the little back yard (I watered the wilting pansies!). Since we had nice weather while in WDC, we appreciated being able to sit out there with a glass of wine in the evening.

Owner's Response: Thanks very +much for your comments. We are a bit confused by some of your remarks. There are bedside tables with lamps as well as standing lamps in each bedroom. Each bedroom has two closets. One contains extra linens and the other has shelving for guest clothing. There is a toweling hook on the back of the bathroom door. We offer our guests the highest quality amenities including soaps, shampoos and toilet paper. Again, thank you for taking the time to comment. We are pleased that you enjoyed the garden and that the rest of your stay was satisfactory. Kind regards, Kim and Deb

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with a few friends over the weekend just to get away and the house was wonderful. Very clean and plenty of fresh linens. We appreciated the Apple TV and card games provided. Great location in DuPont within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Anthony was very kind, helpful, and provided speedy responses via text. Definitely wouldn't mind staying again.
