Georgetown penthouse one bedroom apartment

Welcome to Washington DC! My one bedroom penthouse apartment is located in the best spot (Georgetown) across the street from a park and within a 5 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops in Dupont Circle. The apartment has a 24hr doorperson in a secure building. It is 81m2/870ft2 and very quiet and clean. Perfect for a couple and there's a second bed in the living room for an additional person or two. The decorations, artwork, and lighting are a bit unique as you might be able to see from the photos. The Dupont Circle metro is a 10 minute walk from the apartment so it's easy to get around without a car. Additionally, Uber is easy and cheap in DC and buses go right outside the front and the back building entrances. There are farmers markets on Wednesdays and Sundays and a grocery store (Trader Joes) within a 15 minute walk.

There are several airport options for getting here. DCA airport is the easiest since it's right in the city and only about a 15 minute drive away (taxi or Uber). The next closest is IAD, which is about 40 minutes away by car (Uber costs about $45) or about an hour if you want to take the bus and metro, but I recommend an Uber ride since it's easier. BWI airport is another option, but further. It's possible to take Amtrak or a MARC train from BWI straight from the airport to Union Station in DC (and then Uber or metro/walking combination to my place). If you happen to find a cheap flight to EWR (Newark, New Jersey), that's also an option, similar to flying into BWI, it's along the same train line that heads from DC to NY.

Laundry is provided in the basement of the apartment building ($1 for washing and for drying). There's a rooftop deck with chairs and tables. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the necessary utensils and the bathroom has a tub/shower.

A little bit about me. I'm in my early 40s and will probably be traveling by myself or with my girlfriend. I'm a scientist (geochemist) by training and currently work to facilitate and promote international science cooperation. I'm also a yoga instructor and a stand-up paddle board instructor. I like all animals and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. I should add that I'm also very neat and clean.
