Cheerful, comfortable apartment in a terrific neighborhood with excellent transportation links and steps away from bustling Adams Morgan and 14th St. Well-equipped to be a base for up to two people while you're in D.C. for work or for fun.

The space

The apartment has a queen-size bed with memory foam mattress, an unusually large number of couches and armchairs (family inheritance) and a dining room table.

There's a TV (not a flat-screen or anything fancy, but fully functional) with cable and DVD player. You'll also have wifi and daily Wall Street Journal delivery. There are board games, DVDs and books to borrow as needed (mostly politics, history, classics, kids books, journalism and languages.)

The kitchen is fully-equipped, with additional appliances including a SodaStream, microwave, food processor, toaster and coffeemaker. There are three big grocery stores each within five blocks if you want to do your own cooking, and a complete set of utensils and cookware to help, as well as a plug-in dishwasher (if you're staying more than a night.)

The bathroom is small but effective and has a shower with good water pressure. If you want it, there is a full-size washing machine that connects easily to the sink, and a dryer too.

There's a lovely small patio at the front of the house with a chair and table. The apartment is generally cooler than the rest of the house, but comes with an air conditioner to keep things comfortable in the summer.

Guest access

This is a secure, self-contained basement apartment. It has its own entrance and patio, and inside you'll have a living area, kitchen and bathroom all to yourself.

Interaction with guests

I'll usually meet you on your arrival here with keys, towels, linen and small toiletries, or arrange for a trusted friend to do so in my place. You'll be on your own in the apartment for the duration of your stay, but I can always be reached in an emergency.

Louise was a wonderful host and open to every question we had during our stay. The apartment was as described. The bed was very comfortable, the shower and bathroom in all were really clean. Thank you for letting us stay!

We arrived a little bit later in the day than expect and Louise was perfect. Everything was setup, and while we never got the chance to meet her, it was an incredibly easy experience. The apartment has wonderful light and is very comfortable. The neighborhood offers great food, and is also quiet at night. Louise was available if anything was needed but never overbearing. She isn't an overbearing host and has a wonderful studio. The space is perfect for two people and it's close enough to transportation that everything is a fairly short walk away. It was a wonderful experience and we absolutely enjoyed our stay!

This place is perfect. Located in a very nice neighourhood and just 10 minutes away from dupont circle metro station. You can find everything you need nearby and a bike-sharing-station is just around the corner. The apartment itself has everything you need and is the perfect size for 2. We stayed there for 3 nights and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The bed is very comfortable, the couch is perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring DC and the kitchen has everything you need and more. The WiFi is rediciously strong and fast. Louise made our stay perfect. She communicated very fast and reliable and even left us some guide books and maps of DC. And a metro card. Checking in and out was very easy and flexible. To bad we never got to meet here. We will definitly stay here again some day!

A great location, cozy and clean, with a friendly, helpful, and accommodating host! Louise was flexible with check in and check out times, and was very kind to my sister and I. The colorful neighborhood is full of so many fun and delicious restaurants and bars! Louise was helpful in referring us to her favorite spots! A delight, I would highly recommend this host!

Louise is a great host. This was our first Airbnb experience and it was very pleasant thanks to her. Louise allowed us an early check in time, however we were running late and messaged her about this and she was fine with it. As soon as we arrived in D.C. we let her know and she was very helpful in finding us a place to park. She gave us a parking permit that lasted well beyond our check-out date when we arrived and showed us around and gave us all the information we needed. Louise's apartment is in a great location. We walked around at night and felt very safe, and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to experience. The people in her neighborhood are quite friendly. For example when my wife and I were looking at a map we were offered help from a passer by, and we met a couple other nice people in the area. Louise's apartment was very clean and comfortable and she is a nice, responsive host. I would definitely stay there again, and I recommend her apartment to anyone reading this!

We had the most wonderful time staying at Louise's place. She was easy to get a hold of and was extremely helpful in all possible ways . Louise was out of town when we arrived, so we didn't get the chance to meet her,but she agreed to accommodate our very rely arriving 8:45 am and had one of her friends meet us with the keys to walk us through the apartment. The apartment is in a awesome location , less then 20 minutes ( on the bikes) away from all museums and was exactly as shown on photos. . It was clean, tidy and had everything we could've asked for ( if not more) . If we come back to DC we'll be staying at Loise's place again !

I'm a British journalist who's been living in Washington, D.C. for six years. I like the city and my home in it, which are probably the two most important things for would-be guests.

I had a great experience hosting during President Obama's inauguration in 2009 and after planning my summer vacation accommodation in Europe through Airbnb, I wanted to start up hosting again in D.C.

I am looking forward to having you, and happy to share local tips, stories and maps to help you enjoy life here as much as I do.
