Come enjoy a furnished traditional DC townhouse English basement apartment in sought after Georgetown location for a few nights or weeks!
The house is situated in a great location with no need for a car. Although parking is easy if you do have a car. There is easy public transportation (bus, capital bike share, zipcars, and gocars) less than a block away to access the Monuments, Smithsonian Mall and Museams, free concerts, and other DC neighborhoods.
But no need to go far for fun and relaxation. There are lots of things to do within walking distance.
Georgetown University is about 5 blocks away; less than a block away is the Social Safeway (grocery store), starbucks, and several restaurants. On weekends there is a farmers market, and flea market even closer! There are lots of good restaurants in either direction of the house; a whole foods and gym are within walking distance also.
There is a neighborhood park with tennis, outdoor pool, baseball diamond, and an area for dogs close by also.
Georgetown Harbor is nearby and provides a great atmosphere to just relax, get a bite to eat, and enjoy the water views. Water taxis are available to take you to Old Town Alexandria and the National Harbor.
All of this closeby, but also quiet enough to sit out on the back deck with your morning coffee or tea (provided) and listen to the birds sing.
Apartment has a fireplace, full kitchen (no dishwasher), eat-at counter, small yard with patio, good closet space, and separate entrance.
You walk into a small living area and open kitchen. The closets are located here also.
As you walk down the hallway, the bathroom and washer/dryer are off to the left.
The end of the hallway opens up to the back room with the fireplace (the fireplace mantel is right above the pipes in the 3rd picture). There is no door to enter this room.
From the back room, there are french doors that lead to the patio and yard. Note: This is the potential of the yard; it does not look like this right now but I am working on it!
Drivers: Plenty of safe neighborhood parking.
Bikers: The C&O canal is an easy ride downhill; although you do have to come back at the end of the day! The bus system here is bike friendly so for $1 you could take the bus back up the hill if so desired.

I am an optimistic, easy going, kind, creative, open-minded, flexible, and independent woman (how’s that for a string of adjectives!) who is very comfortable with herself and happiest when laughing with others. I love entertaining, cooking, sailing, tennis, and dancing.
I own my own business but don’t ask me what it is that I do exactly. The business is comprised of an eclectic group of activities, any one of which I may be working on at any given time. Currently, I make most of the money that I need to live on a daily basis with rental property.
I also love traveling (particularly to sun and water destinations) so perhaps I will see you at your place someday!
