About the property

Lovely spot, where residential neighborhood meets bustling Mt. Pleasant Road

Steps from central Mount Pleasant and the Saturday farmers' market, the available apartment is the in-laws' suite below our "Grande Dame" townhouse on historic Lamont Street. The apartment has its own entrance off Lamont Street, and is not directly connected to our residence. A cozy, well appointed apartment in great location, is a delightful alternative to staying in a hotel but with all the same amenities, ideal for business travel or family vacation. Private entrance off street, shaded patio in tranquil back yard. Easy walks to Zoo, Rock Creek Park, and Metro. HABLAMOS ESPANOL. PARLONS FRANCAIS.

About Kelly Willis

My husband and I bought this house just last year, and decided not to rent the basement, so that we have plenty of space when the grandparents visit! So we left it furnished and with none of our personal clutter, and are happy to share it with travelers who want a nice (and more economical) alternative to a hotel.

Mauldin, South Carolina

It was absolutely perfect for two couples visiting DC for a 3 day weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our purposes. One couple had lived in DC in the last century. The property is in the heart of a thriving neighborhood and easy access to other popular neighborhoods in DC, Adams Morgan, DuPont Circle and others. We used Lyft and Metro buses for transportation. Both worked well. Our primary purpose was visiting museums and the short ride by Lyft to the mall maximized our time in the museums.

The beds were comfortable, the towels were thick and soft. We wanted to use the patio but never seemed to have time. Kelly was accommodating of a couple of special needs we had. She said it was because she and I are from Michigan State, but I believe she just wanted us to enjoy ourselves with the least amount of effort. We did. Next time I visit DC for any reason, I would want to stay in this Amazing apartment in Kalorama, Washington, DC.

* Wi Fi was strong

*washer and dryer was easy to operate

*Patio is covered

*Neighbors were friendly

*Rooms and furniture are comfortable

*voice activated cable TV

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to have you! Anyone reading this should do whatever they can to have Bernard and his wife as guests... they left the place in pristine condition (maybe even cleaner than I left it?!?) and on top of that left me a beautiful house plant that will remind me of the Scott's and the Johnson's every time I look at it!

Historic home

  • 4 of 5

This is a basement 2 bedroom 2 bath in mt. Pleasant neighborhood. Owner was very nice and the place had many nice features. Kitchen was well supplied with all you would need and even had food basics in the refrigerator. We were also allowed to leave our bags there while we toured the park and zoo.

Perfect for our family. Enough space to hang out when needing a rest and loved the neighborhood- restaurants close, the zoo, a perfect walk. Glad we found you!

Very cozy & convenient apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 5 stayed at this apartment for 3 nights. It was very comfortable and we had plenty of space. Kelly was great to work with us & accommodated all requests that we made. The only possible negative & it’s a miniscule, is that there was no microwave. It would have been nice to have to reheat leftovers but no biggie.

Totally & highly recommend this apartment!!!

Owner's Response: Kathy, thanks for your review. I'm so sorry about the microwave - it was in the kitchen pantry, but I should have let you know! I hope you all enjoyed the visit, and remembrance of your father and his military service. Come back another time! - Kelly

Very nice place, well kept, and well placed for seeing the city

  • 5 of 5

We did not meet the owners which was fine. They did answer all of our questions in a timely manner and parking was easy. The apartment let us enjoy the stay more like being home and experience d.c. like a local instead of a traveler. Highly recommend this property. Thank you and we will be back.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This place was an overall great experience. An ideal place for a small family or two couples looking for something outside the hotel experience. Kelly is wonderful, we had no issues if we had to contact her or needed anything extra. In fact, she kindly let us stay past our check-out since our flight back to Chicago was canceled. This apartment is efficient, in a safe neighborhood and conveniently located near a convenient store and a variety amount of restaurants to choose from.

The only negative thing I would say about this apartment is the wi-fi. The connection was so slow that only one person had luck when trying to access anything service necessary. Since we were having such a great trip the WiFi was not an issue.

In conclusion, you will not be disappointed when staying here. Would highly recommend as well as stay at this location for future DC trips!
