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.
NO SMOKING PERMITTED ON PROPERTY!
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.
Please be respectful of the space and our neighbors.
No parties/gatherings of people outside of guests booked on the reservation (in the apartment or in outdoor spaces).
Be smart and safe! Lock up all the gates and doors around the property.
Before checking out, please put all used towels either in the shower, or on top of the dryer.
Have a blast, and feel free to contact us if you have any issues or questions (about the property, DC or in need of any further suggestions for making your trip great)!!
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!
