Our apartment is a modern studio w/intentional design including open space features, reclaimed doors and a gorgeous, spotless kitchen. In the hot Shaw neighborhood on a neighbor-friendly street only 2 blocks to metro/bus/market w/amazing restaurants & bars!!

The space

Hi! My name is Amy, and I host guests in this great apartment on behalf of dear friends Chandrika & Brandon (hence why you see all our names in reviews ;)).

In this space, you will find almost everything you would expect in a hotel room. This place was designed just for your comfort. We offer towels, bedsheets, duvet, a new high quality queen mattress (with awesome memory foam topper), a fan, heating/cooling wall unit, an amazing spa shower including a 'rain shower' head (we are making some aesthetic/styling changes, so it may look a little different than the pictures, but still the amazing space you see!)

There is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, pour-over coffee maker, electric stove/oven, toaster, in-sink water filter, ice maker, microwave, and dining ware. It a clean, open space with lots of light.

The apartment is also equipped with high speed wireless Internet (it is a basement studio, so will occasionally be fussy...but is great for working and watching movies), and an HD TV with antenna & online apps like netflix, hulu and more.

Outside pathway/walkway has privacy fence and bench area. No access to our living space directly outside our patio door into our house but you will have outdoor seating near your entrance. With a living/green space you can enjoy seasonable evenings in an awesome historic alley with views of carriage houses all around.

No other main house amenities will be shared except from trash bins that are supplied for the whole household. 2 bins supplied. Blue for recycle, green for all other trash. Recycle procedures in DC requires you to leave all recyclables loose in bin ie not in trash bags

Off limits would be directly in front of our entrance/patio door and our parking.


Guest access

All gates and doors offer keypad access. (Codes are changed frequently, and will be delivered before your arrival.)

Interaction with guests

We interact with guest about a week prior to arrival to inform about specific details. While guest is at location we communicate when necessary. Since we live in the house as well, casual interaction occurs when prompted. Of course if guests inquire for extra assistance we will certainly do our best to meet the inquiries. Our housemate, James, may also be made available to help out if needed!

Other things to note

Pay attention and be aware of your surroundings. You are in the middle of the city!!!

Take your time and enjoy our beautiful DC.

Amy was very helpful and friendly. She answered any questions we had very quickly and was always keen to offer more help. Amy recommended a great restaurant close by on our first night and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was perfect for our needs and very clean and comfortable. Thanks Amy for helping to make our time in DC so great.

The apartment is lovely - clean, spacious and in a great location. It has all the conveniences you would look for in a modern apartment and Amy had added some extra personal touches to make you feel at home. Amy was easy to communicate with before and during the stay. I loved the extra comfy bed, the amazing shower and the washer/dryer was convenient for someone who had been on the road for so long and needed clean clothes. There are some nice places to eat in the area with great place just opposite the apartment for cocktails in the evenings. Thank you Amy for a fantastic place and being a great host. I would definitely be back.

Easy check-in, check-out, keyless entry, good restaurant directly across the street, metro station within walking distance. Uber pickup is easy, i.e. not on a busy street. We were greeted with a nice bottle of wine and welcome note. Studio was clean, modern and comfortable, with a great kitchen and spa shower. Rainy days made the dehumidifier especially appreciated. Noise from upstairs and the street was negligible.

Clean spacious unit. Convenient location. Be aware that entrance is down a fairly steep narrow outside stairwell. May not be easily accessible for anyone with mobility issues or heavy luggage.

Response from Amy:
Thank you for your feedback, Jim! I actually normally check in privately with guests that mention mobility issues, before booking, as stairs are a bit steep and narrow in places (and help with heavy luggage when I can :)). I'm glad that were not too much of an issue for you!

The studio was great! Amy was an amazing host, it was really easy to communicate with her, she was flexible, friendly and super helpful. We got to D.C. a couple of hours earlier than the check in and Amy offered to store the bags for us. When we got there it was raining, she was very kind and let us use three of her umbrellas. The place is fantastic and looks just like the photos. All to say we loved our stay at the studio.

This was my first experience with airbnb and it was a great experience. Amy was a wonderful host. She was gracious, flexible, easy-going and responsive. The place itself was very comfortable and quiet. We had everything we needed and slept great! Would return again.

We live in the heart of DC and enjoy travel, art and music...we also love hosting and making people feel at home. This amazing space has been owned by friends for years (Brandon and I met while traveling & serving in Uganda), and we are the humble caretakers. Excited to welcome you to the Nation's Capital!
