Short walk to 2 metro stations, National Mall, waterfront, and more! The apartment is the full ground level of a rowhouse with one bedroom, comfortable den, private bathroom; minifridge & coffee. Separated from rest of hour with locked divider. Walking distance to The WHARF -- new development coming October 2017.
This is a full, private floor all to yourself. Spacious bedroom and den with high ceilings. There is a washer/dryer, which guests may use upon request. No kitchen or microwave, but we have added a minifridge and coffee machine. Separated from upstairs of house with a locked divider (see photo). The den opens up to a small patio.
Guests will have access to full, private ground level apartment that is separate from the rest of the rowhouse. The backyard patio is a shared space, but the interior of the apartment is private space.
Interaction with guests
I am happy to share info about the neighborhood and the city overall. Within the apartment, I leave a printed copy of a visitor's welcome guide that I developed for my guests. I respond very quickly to requests through Airbnb and can help troubleshoot any issues that may arise during a stay. Should your stay last longer than 3 days, I may need to coordinate with you so I may use the washer dryer in your unit at a time that won't disturb you.
Other things to note
I provide bottles of water and granola bars upon arrival (as supplies last). I have a visitor's parking pass that guests who drive may use. This means you can park for free in designated street parking spaces during your stay. Without this pass, you would only be able to park on street for 2 hours at a time. As previously stated, I do not have a kitchen, but I have just added a minifridge and Keurig coffee maker. The space is probably best for those who want to explore the city (or have business meetings nearby) and eat most meals out of the house.
Please treat my home as if it were you're own. No smoking or pets. No visitors beyond those authorized to stay via Airbnb. If anything breaks or does not work during your stay, please let me know so that I may fix it for you and future guests. Please aim to leave the place as clean as you found it.
A lost or improperly returned house key will result in a $100 fee. Early check in or late check out is a $40 fee-- please let me know in advance if you are requesting either.
Street parking is offered for free. If you want off-street/uncovered parking in a reserved spot, it may be available on certain dates for $25/night.
I've lived in Washington, DC for several years and can offer recommendations regarding restaurants, and sites to see, if desired. I also love to travel and enjoy both hosting and staying at Airbnb locations.
