Perfect room for one or two traveling to our nation's Capital. This 100 year old home is recently renovated yet retains all the charms of wood floors and cozy radiator heat. 10 minute walk to the metro (red line) and one block to major bus lines.
The room is a little small but has a double bed, which should give you a sense of perspective.
Guest will have access to all the amenities of the house, except the living room which I use as my study/unwind area.
Other things to note
Please do not inquire about special discounts for longer term rentals. The price of the room is already competitively priced for the area and has been in high demand since being listed. Keep in mind prices include utilities, which is often not included in other non-AirBnB rentals. Longer term rentals preferred.
There are no permanent pets in the house but occasionally my girlfriends dog comes to visit for a few days.
No smoking in the house, but outside is ok.
Finish laundry by 9pm in respect of basement tenants.
No hard soled or healed shoes in house as it disturbs the basement tenants. Sneakers and soft soled shows are totally fine.
Clean up dishes after using the kitchen/finished with dinner.
I'm a small business owner in Washington DC (You can web search JONWYE to find out more) and I've just bought this super nice house in NW DC. I've lived here most of my life and really love DC and being in the mix of all the activity.
I've watched it change from a city with no youthful population to one of the most exciting cities in which to live.
When I am not working I have a wonderfully artistic group of friends to distract me with new city adventures. I love talking about space and science, wishing that could have been my career path had I been more math adept.
Because of the nature of my job I am very outgoing and friendly and try to surround myself with good people. Please don't request a room if the art of cordiality is lost on you.
The house is perfect for those coming to DC for internships, fellowships, and new permanent residents looking to acclimate to a new city.
Currently I have a Peace Corp volunteer and a foreign journalist renting. It's a good group.
