If you want access to everything DC has to offer from the front door of your Airbnb, then this is your place!
Literally steps from every public transit option available - streetcar, metro, bus, and bike share - the city will be at your fingertips.
Add to it that you'll be on the bustling H Street NE corridor with access to vibrant nightlife and restaurants while still close enough to serene nature trails and the National Arboretum, and you've got the best of both worlds.
See you soon!
You'll have access to our entire basement apartment. You have your own private entrance, and there's room for up to four guests. There's no kitchen, but we do provide a mini-fridge and microwave to make sure your leftovers from the great restaurants of DC stay fresh and yummy.
If you're a caffeine hound like us, we provide coffee and tea so you have that extra buzz to get you ready for your day (or keep you up for those late night work sessions).
The bedroom houses one full-size bed, and the sofa in the living area expands into another full-size bed. Clean mattress covers, sheets, and blankets are all provided for your comfort. There is ample closet space so you can unpack that suitcase and truly make yourself at home.
In the common area, you have your own smart TV that's connected to our wifi, so feel free to sign into your own Roku, Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu, Amazon Prime or any other streaming service subscription. The sofa also easily pulls out into another bed.
No need to share a bathroom with us, either. You'll have your own, and it'll be stocked with basic necessities so you don't have to worry too much if you forget to put something in your toiletries bag.
Accès des voyageurs
You have full reign of the basement apartment. We just ask you not disturb anything behind the standing screen near the entrance. It's just a storage area, but we don't want you or anyone with you getting hurt on the tools we house there.
We can also offer our private, secured parking space in the rear of our home for an additional fee. Just let us know at the time of booking that you'll require the space. Street parking is free and unzoned, but you're responsible for heeding all street signs and tow warnings.

Straight up: this is our home. We live here, and we only rent out our space when we're in town. Chances are you'll meet us at some point, but after that, it's truly up to you how much you want to see us from then on.
Aside from the visitor's guide you'll find when you arrive, we're also happy to provide suggestions tailored to your visit. And, who knows, if it's a nice evening and we light up the fire pit or have friends over, there's always the chance we'll invite you up for a glass of wine and some good conversation. But that's totally up to you.
Our home is an old one. Built in 1927, it's seen a lot in its eight decades. Though it's fully renovated, you'll still hear some creaks and groans and pipes popping from time to time. We like to think of it as our home telling us its history. It can also get a little chilly in the winter months, but we provide space heaters in case it's too cool for you. Since it's a basement, it stays fairly cool during the summer, but we're also happy to adjust the thermostat to your comfort level.
It's also a rowhome. That means that there are other houses connected directly to us. While the walls are insulated, sometimes you hear the mumblings of the neighbors. Typical DC living.
Again, this is a basement apartment, and we live above, so you may hear us walking around. We're working professionals, though, so we're out of the house by around 7:30 a.m. and not home until around 7 p.m. on most days. And because we love our sleep, we're in bed at a fairly early hour, too. All that to say, you shouldn't hear us clip-clopping around too much, and we try to be as quiet as possible.
We do have a dog - a bubbly, loveable hound/lab rescue - but she's not allowed in your space. If you love dogs, she'll never refuse a pet. If you don't, that's cool, too, and you never have to meet her.
- Please remove your shoes and place them on the convenient shoe rack upon entering the apartment.
- No additional guests not on the reservation.
- Quiet hours are 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. That goes for us, too!
- Turn off all lights, space heaters and appliances (i.e. coffee maker and water boiler) before leaving the apartment.
-Set alarm before leaving apartment.
-Please stay away from storage area due to sharp tools and objects.

I'm a Dixie-raised DCist with strong roots in the Rust Belt. You're probably wondering what that actually means. It's just that I've been a DC resident for a decade but was raised and went to school in southern Virginia (with the accent to prove it) and can still wave a Pittsburgh Steelers terrible towel like the rest of my family from Western Pennsylvania.
I'm a federal government employee, and I've got a bad-ass job as a creative communications project manager. Basically, my team is the Mad Men of a regulatory agency. I promise it's more interesting and fun than it sounds.
I love Washington, D.C. In a city where residents stay only 18 months on average, my wife and I decided to buy a house and stick around for a while. I have one foot in the urban landscape and another in the rural area around me. Food is my weakness - seriously, I'll eat everything from a slaw dog in North Carolina to chicharron in Ecuador to coeur de cochon in Montreal - and I love to try new things. When traveling, I always opt for the local spots - McDonalds be damned! - and try to stay off the beaten path a bit. So, as you can imagine, if you stay with us, we'll give you the run down of all the great things to see and eat in our fine city.
LOVES: Peggy Jean (our hound/lab rescue pup), cutting the grass (really!), burpees, doughnuts, Saturday Night Live, the gym, and politics.
HATES: Donald Trump, racism, high humidity, bad hair days, and spiders.
GUILTY PLEASURES: Brownies, spending hours in the kitchen, and the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
