About Catherine Robinson

Two professionals and baby working in international business who love to travel. We are animal lovers as well and share our house with our great dog.

Catherine Robinson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Catherine Robinson chose U Street Corridor (Shaw)

The condo is located in a lovely historic row house built in the 1900s. We live downstairs in the first floor condo and rent out the upstairs condo.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location

After living in DC for 15 years in various parts of the city, we moved to the border of Logan and Shaw. This is the most centrally located part of the city and you can get to any other neighborhood or part of town super easy by foot, metro, bike share or car.

The convention center is also three blocks away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a group of 6 who all needed separate beds. This home was perfect for us! The location was excellent. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and the metro station was across the street. Check-in was easy and the instructions were easy to follow. No problems at all. I would highly recommend this home and would definitely stay here agin.

Great DC location

  • 5 of 5

Loved this townhouse, very clean, very close to Metro stop & a 7-11 to pick up a quick snack. Entire unit is on the second level - fine for us, but something to be aware of if stairs are an issue. We would stay there again

Property was excellent and wonderful for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for our stay in DC. It was everything I expected it be and more. We took our kids to visit D.C. and the condo was perfect with fantastic amenities. The owners were fabulous and very kind. Would highly recommend this for anyone coming to DC!

Great apartment for a DC adventure

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely apartment for 5 days to see DC.

It was super easy to find and get into, with on-street parking and a really close metro line. The instructions for anything you could possibly ask were all written clearly in a binder in the house. Lots of shops nearby (and completely walkable).

We've stayed in some pretty spartan airbnbs but this apartment had everything you could want - it made the stay that much easier and comfortable. It felt more like staying at a friend's house, rather than a rented house.

Would completely stay here again for another trip to DC. I wish the weather had cooperated on our stay so we could have chilled on the deck with a beer!

Great location and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in D.C. with our family of four and two dogs in the Condo. Cat was very accommodating for our last minute adjustments and was welcoming of our pets. The location is very convenient to some outstanding restaurants, the metro and even dog parks. We had a wonderful stay.

We came for volleyball tournament at convention center and it was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Condo has everything you need and more. Was absolutely lovely. Working with Cat was delightful- she was quick to respond and more than happy to give us a last minute early check in and let us use the parking pass the last day since our team played early and late. Would absolutely stay there again!
