High-end studio in leafy, resort-style complex, one-and-a-half blocks from Rosslyn metro. The ultra-convenient, resort-style complex is called River Place. It's just across the Potomac River from D.C.'s trendy Georgetown area -- a hub of cafes, restaurants and upscale shopping.
The apartment features gleaming bamboo hardwood floor, tiled kitchen, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), 32-inch wall-mounted flat panel TV, large L-shaped desk and Cararra marble bathroom vanity among other fine features.
It also includes its own, dedicated, high-speed Wi-Fi network -- separate from the slower, building-wide network.
The popular River Place South building provides an in-house fitness center with late-model cardio and strength equipment, large stretching area, sauna and steam room. The fitness center also offers free classes in such things as Piyo, which merges pilates and yoga, and Tai Chi, the Chinese martial art practiced for whole body fitness.
The apartment itself is sunny with a new double-paned wall-to-wall picture window; four closets, including a walk-in closet; and built-in oak-clad bookcases. It's fully furnished in contemporary style and fully equipped with all kitchenware and linens. This 6th-floor unit is 406 square feet and features a view of the Iwo Jima Memorial National Park.
From the apartment, you may walk across the picturesque Key Bridge in 15 minutes or so to D.C.'s trendy Georgetown neighborhood of ethnic restaurants, lively clubs and busy nightlife. Everything is at your fingertips here -- it's ultra convenient for touring Washington D.C. and surrounding areas. Also in easy walking distance is Theodore Roosevelt Island, an 88.5-acre nature preserve in the Potomac crisscrossed by nature trails and boardwalk that transports you from the urban environment.
The building, known as River Place South, is part of a gated community. A concierge is on duty in an upscale lobby. Community amenities include a resort-style outdoor pool with lap lanes and Jacuzzi-like hot whirlpool. Also featured: an in-house health club with late-model cardio and strength equipment; an on-site grocery store open until at least 11 pm seven days a week; a hair salon/spa and dry cleaner/tailor shop.
On-site parking may be available by special arrangement. Garage spots typically rent for $125 per month.
Early check-in also may be available. If so, we're happy to accommodate.
The monthly rate is steeply discounted from the basic rate, after you plug in your dates.
Washer/dryers are on the building's first floor, operated with a credit or debit card (or quarters). The machines are new enough to be capable of sending a text message when a load is finished.
This apartment overlooks the Iwo Jima Monument National Park -- home to the iconic Raising the Flag sculpture, from a picture snapped during the Battle of Iwo Jima by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal. The property also lies close to jogging and biking trails along the Potomac, trendy shopping in nearby Clarendon and acclaimed restaurants. You may want to try the successor to Ray's Hell Burger, where then-President Obama treated then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to a fat, juicy sampling of what many still deem the area's best hamburgers.
For touring, the apartment's location is unsurpassed: 5 minutes' walk to the Rosslyn Metro station, an intersection of three metro lines -- Orange, Blue and the (new) Silver line to Tyson's Corner. Only one stop away on the Orange line is DC's Foggy Bottom Metro stop, which serves George Washington University, the World Bank and the State Department. Separately, a $1 shuttle bus whisks you over the Key Bridge to Georgetown and then to Dupont Circle, the heart of DC's intellectual life (home to some of the nation's most prestigious think tanks and research institutions, including the Brookings Institution, the Center for Strategic & International Studies, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the German Marshall Fund, The Eurasia Center, the Peterson Institute and the School of Advanced International Studies of The Johns Hopkins University).
Restaurants, shops, post office, bank, Target Express, a CVS drug store and a Safeway supermarket are all within a few blocks of River Place, either on or next to Wilson Boulevard, Arlington's main road.
Notes: The Iwo Jima Marine Corps War Memorial adjacent to River Place is a major D.C. landmark, visited by more than 1 million annually. It's home to the Sunset Parade, a rivetting, free performance Tuesday evenings during the summer months by the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps with the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. You can hear the rehearsals and the show from the apartment, an extra bonus. Crowds also gather at the Memorial on the 4th of July to watch the national fireworks display.
The D.C. Circulator bus runs between Dupont Circle, Georgetown and Rosslyn. For just $1, you can hop on the Circulator at the corner of 19th St. N. and N. Moore St. -- about five minutes' from River Place -- and zip across the Key Bridge into D.C. For the return trip, pick up the bus in Dupont or Georgetown. Buses run every 10 minutes from 7:00 a.m. - midnight Sunday through Thursday and 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 a.m. on weekends. Those over age 62 ride at half price.
There are two private bus companies that run between Rosslyn and New York City. Vamoose Bus provides service several times daily from 1801 N Lynn Street in Rosslyn -- about five minutes' walk from River Place -- to Penn Station/Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan. The cost ranges from $20.00 to $30.00, depending on the time of day. Tripper Bus provides daily service from nearby 1901 N. Moore Street to the Macy's flagship store on 34th Street in Manhattan, for a similar charge (as of April 2016).

This clears you to use the in-house fitness center, outdoor pool and other community amenities, including free fitness classes.

I'm a career reporter, based for long stints in New York, Paris, Bangkok, Washington and Shanghai. Now, a visiting professor of journalism in China and elsewhere. Am very happy to steer visitors to great spots in and around D.C. When I'm out of town, my in-house assistant manages key hand-offs and orientations to the property. As a guest, I pride myself on taking excellent care of others' homes.
