Centrally located in Washington DC and the heart of historic Mt Pleasant, this design award winning worldly home is for Scandinavian design and African art lovers. A haven for families with kids who will love the 3rd floor ball pit and Legos galore.

The space

Our 100+ year-old historic row house is located in vibrant Mt Pleasant close to everything DC has to offer: Rock Creek Park and the National Zoo are our next-door neighbors, the White House and National Mall are app. two miles down the road.

Our house has an ideal setup for families with kids who want to explore DC, but be able to relax like they were at home and let the kids hang in the playroom with toys, books, wii games or a splash in the ball pit. The artful kids room sleeps two.

The master bedroom has a kingsize bed, the loft-bedroom has a queen sized bed and the study has a pullout queen sized bed.

The kitchen is especially enjoyable for those who want to cook - it was recently awarded a design price.

We are an allergy prone family – non-smoking and pet-policy are therefore non-negotiable.

While we enjoy Scandinavian design and African art, we are focused on functionality and nothing in our house is too precious. It's the place to hang your hat and put up your feet after enjoying everything that DC has to offer.

We speak Danish, Swedish, English, German - and try us in Portuguese!

We stayed a week and had a fantastic time, thanks to the location of Maj's home and the availability of everything that was needed for a great family vacation. Will definitely want to stay again when we come back next time!

Our family of 3 adults and 4 children stayed here and would highly recommend it. The beds were comfortable, the home was well-stocked with kitchen tools, and the "attic" upstairs had many toys and games to keep the kids occupied during our down-time. The home is lovely, with many books to enjoy (both children and adult). The neighborhood is very walkable (we visited the zoo a few times, walked to the subway almost every day, and enjoyed exploring area). There are many local and chain shops/restaurants nearby. The closest shopping area is more local - ethnic restaurants and small family-owned shops. Near the subway station (about 1/2 mile) you will find many chain stores/restaurants. The nearest grocery store was too far for us to stock up at (about 1/2 mile), so we had groceries delivered the day we arrived (just a tip for others in the same boat). Maj had the place well-stocked with shampoo/conditioner/body wash, cleaning supplies and paper goods. We would absolutely stay here again if we're ever back in D.C.

Maj's home was a young family's dream. We had four small boys and more than enough place for everyone to sleep. In fact, many times they all slept together in the attic/kids paradise. We enjoyed watching Netflix movies every night. The kitchen had everything you'd ever need. There was always street parking and very friendly neighbors. We were so very happy every moment and Maj was very good at communicating with us prior to our arrival. The instructions once we arrived were wonderful and very clear. If we are ever back in DC, we would definitely stay here again!

this was our second stay at this home, and it was even better than the first time. it was big enough to accommodate all of our family, the kitchen has a fantastic open plan that lends itself easily to large family meals together, the new bathroom on the second floor is very nice and a modern European style, and the top floor kids room is always a hit with the little ones, the location is excellent, walking distance to parks, the zoo, and neighbourhood coffee shops and restaurants, the host is very responsive where there is any need, highly recommend this home for families or groups of 3 or more.

It was a true pleasure to communicate with Maj! I've booked her amazing place for our UK crew that were filming and staying at her place in Washington DC. Impeccable place! Amazing host! No other comments. I highly recommend this place. Thank you, Maj from all of us!

Maj User ProfileMaj is a superhost.

Originally from Denmark, living in Washington DC, but work in Africa. Needless to say, our house is often empty, yearning for someone to put it to good use. Our house has won a design award for the renovations of our bathroom and kitchen - 102 years old, there are always new updates.
