Please recycle everything possible and clean up after your use of bath and kitchen. Hang up wet robes and towels to dry or wash in laundry. (I have a magnetic system requiring no detergent!)
Please make sure to securely close the side gate in case my dogs are around.
Do not leave food stuff in trash can indoors (take it immediately to outside trash receptacles) and do not leave food out if my dogs or cats are around as they will surprise you with their reach and quickness to devour!
Please do not be too loud outdoors and respect my neighbors.
Smoking permitted outdoors, only. Please do not burn candles unattended.

House Rental Notes

The Zen Shedteau:
light switch to right wall when you walk in.
Hot tub:
the hot tub cover is hand made and a bit heavy. Pick it up from closest end and slide forward and up to lean against the fence or just prop it up to access the main seat closest to the shed.
Be careful of the water intake at the left side bottom when in the tub as the cover broke off and your leg could feel the pull of suction (startling!)
The jets button is in the middle of the panel and is the only button to push. The cycle is either off, pump or jets on. The timer shuts off the jets after 15 minutes.
Add a tablespoon of the Aromatherapy MPS before you get in and a few teaspoons of the Di-Chlor after use.
Cover the hot tub and secure the tarp over it with stones.

Steam Room:
There is a panel inside near the sink to turn on and off and adjust the temperature. Make sure the door is closed while in use and after use, sweep the water towards the drain with the squeegee. Prop the door open and turn the timer exhaust all the way to 60 minutes. Make sure the door does not close or the fan motor will be stressed.
There are towels on top of the laundry machines.
There are robes in the top floor bedroom or near the steam room.
Please hang up anything wet as I have a hatred for mold!

If you are looking for a cute eclectic place with hot tub, fire pit, and an adorable "shed" to spend the night you've found it! I had a concert at the MGM grand which was a ten dollar lyft. Brenda was a great communicator and we had a great time with her puppies. Definitely recommend!

Brenda is a wonderful host, central location, great if you have a car or need transportation. Public transport is a 10 minute or so walk away. Felt like a cozy, well lived in home with a good vibe. However, keep in mind that animals also do live here, in the case you do not care for dogs and cats! One of the dogs got into some of our stuff, but she graciously compensated for it. Thanks for being such a great host Brenda!

Brendas place was one of the highlights of our trip. Her backyard & Zenshed are wonderful. My wife & I loved her decor & feel of her home. Her her dogs are very lovely & friendly. She was very attentive when needed. Great place for singles or couples to stay.

This was a great place to stay. Very eclectic decor and an inviting space. Brenda, keeps the home clean and there are several amenities at the house that you will not find at another AirBNB. Beyond her three bedroom home, she has a zenshed that is very nice and was an enjoyable space to sleep! I would recommend to anyone staying in the DC area!

I am a very young 46 year old woman from Alexandria, Va., very close to DC. Small business owner, entrepreneur and massage therapist since 1996. I specialize in stress and pain management and need to manage my own stress and pain by getting away every now and then!
I love travel and learning about cultures, traditions, language and modern social behavior.
I am an animal rescuer and love all animals and most people.
after graduating college at UNC-Wilmington (North Carolina) I was a counselor working with homeless women or domestic violence victims in transition as well as adolescent aggressives and family therapy. I love gardening and I make my own cleansers for the house, and all natural skin products as well as other natural products. As well, I brew homemade Kombucha!
I love to hike, bike, water and snow ski, boogie board. My favorite passions are wildlife, live music, dancing, story telling and art. I am a horsewoman and helped to train wild horses and rehabilitate race horses.
When I travel I like to incorporate many or some of these varied interests.

Be encouraged
This is a motto (mantra) which I have embraced.
I am a positive person
with a big heart, appreciating!

In return,
zest for life.
