You’ll love my place because of it's proximity to everything great in Columbia Heights and the rest of DC. 1.5 blocks to the metro or take a beautiful, 2.4 mile walk to The White House through Meridian Park. The National Zoo is also nearby (1 mile). I charge a few extra bucks for my place but that's because it's worth it. Professional cleaning crew at every turnover! You'll have everything you need here and rest peacefully in the comfort and security offered by our home.

The space

A fantastic English Basement that is on the best block in Columbia Heights. What's an English Basement? It's a basement that's not truly a basement because it is not entirely below grade. Most, if not all, row-houses in DC were built this way. They were the basements of these historic homes and most owners have converted them to private apartments. This is a completely separate apartment from the house with its own independent access, giving you optimal privacy. Accessibility to everything you need is at your fingertips. Apartment equipped with wireless internet, cable tv (log in to Netflix with the SmartTV) in the living room and bedroom, Keurig Coffee Maker and a well equipped kitchen. Many grocery options and farmers markets within a short walk. Check out the famous Wonderland with awesome beer selections and outdoor patio.

Guest access

Apartment has separate front and rear access. There is no internal access to the house above, which provides for a completely separate apartment. A lock box will be accessible outside the door to let you in when you arrive. There is a small patio out back that is shared by the tenants upstairs, so please be courteous if using.

Interaction with guests

I am always available via cell phone and spend a lot of time in the neighborhood. The neighbors have been great friends for over 10 years and will also be extremely helpful if you need them during your stay.

Other things to note

Columbia Heights is a thriving neighborhood in DC with tons of great restaurants and shopping. A brisk short walk gets you to all of the museums and sites or simply jump on the Metro and you are only a few short stops away.

As noted, location is perfect. Shopping, Metro and local restaurants/bars for all tastes. The apartment is fully loaded with everything you could need for a long weekend. Thought was put into covering any and all needs. Would absolutely stay again.

We had a wonderful stay at Colin's place. The apartment was clean and had everything we could need to feel at home. We only had a short walk to the metro station and were able to get food when we needed it with only a short walk. Colin was a great host and was quick to answer any questions. Would definitely stay here again.

This was the perfect place to stay while we visited the city; less than two blocks from the metro, we were able to get to town and back quickly and easily. The apartment has a kitchen stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils you could possibly need; all the conveniences of home. There is a large grocery store within easy walking distance, as well as some nice places to eat if you aren't in the mood to cook for yourself. We had absolutely no complaints and would highly recommend Colin's apartment.
