  based on 2 reviews

About this listing

Incredible modern 2 unit row home; both units are modern 2 level, 2 bedroom apartments in historic U Street/Shaw area - close to both the subway and bus lines. You will be next door to restaurants, shops, and in between the trendy neighborhoods and well known DC sites. The home has been soundproofed so one minute you're in the middle of the action, and the next in your own quiet space. The neighbourhood combines proximity to sightseeing spots with access to the trendiest streets, shops, and nightlife.

The neighbourhood is a row-house, restaurant- and retail-filled neighborhood north of the White House. Duke Ellington was born here, and he and other stars played at nearby theaters that are still standing. These days, the zone is just as well known for trendy restaurants, indie boutiques and a happening bar scene. One thing’s for sure, it’s one of the most interesting places in the capital city to be right now.

Great Spot

Had a good stay with a group of friends. Lots of great nightlife/food spots in the area, and close to the metro. Host was also very responsive. Would recommend.

Perfect Location/Comfortable for Family

This is a great location, close to restaurants, bars, grocery, drugstore, live entertainment options. We enjoyed walking around and discovering the city. Be sure to check out Ben's Chilli Bowl ( a few blocks down). The space was large enough to comfortably fit my family of 5 for a week. Would certainly recommend it.

Thanks for staying with us. You’re welcome back anytime!
