Excellent. Great location and incredible host. What stands out most is the hospitality we received without ever actually having met our host, Heather. The attention to detail rivals a fine hotel. Every little thing was accounted for, every need, anticipated. The next time I stay in D.C., I hope to stay with Heather.

Very comfortable space. Was not too sure about sharing a bathroom with other guests, but worked out very well. Never ran into each other. Heather checked in with guests, was very kind. Instructions were clear and helpful with tips on transportation, food in area as well as potential activities. Thoughtfully has toiletries available if needed.

The perfect combination of attentiveness and discretion. We had both rooms, which meant having the top floor of the house for ourselves, including the bathroom. The neighborhood is beautiful and Heather provided a brand new DC guide and lots of information on eating in the neighborhood. The granola bars hit the spot! My bedroom had a collection of books on philosophy displayed in it. Heather also provided toiletries in the bathroom--shower gel, shampoo, etc. Very nice.

My boyfriend and I spent a great weekend at Heather's place! The house is in a lovely area, close to a street market and metro/buses! The house was very clean and Heather provides us with towels and all the necessites for our weekend!! She was very helpful and responsive to my messages. I would definitely recommend her house to everyone who want to visit Washington DC!

Heather User ProfileHeather is a superhost.

I am an acupuncturist who has lived in New Hampshire, Oregon, California, Hawaii, Australia and Brazil, and who after quite a number of years here is still surprised to find myself living in Washington DC. I love my Capitol Hill neighborhood because it has a community feel with wide, treelined streets along with the advantages of the city -- metro, shops, restaurants, and parks.
