We just finished renovating our English basement for you to enjoy during your visit to DC. With a full bed it comfortably sleeps two and the location cannot be beat! We are 100 feet from Eastern Market, 2 blocks from the metro, and 7 from the Capitol Building. Come see!

The Space

We just finished renovating our English basement for you to enjoy during your visit to DC. With a full bed it comfortably sleeps two and the location cannot be beat! We are 100 feet from Eastern Market, 2 blocks from the metro, and 7 from the Capitol Building. Come see!

We have lovingly decorated the apartment with handicrafts we've collected from around the world. Our work has taken us to some fascinating places--from Africa and Haiti to Egypt, from Azerbaijan to Afghanistan--and these mementos from our travels are symbols of the adventures and experiences that have shaped us. It seemed fitting to deocrate our basement for a traveller.

Our travelling has also taught us the importance of finding somewhere you can feel at home while on the road and so we've furnished the apartment with all of the amenities we would want in a home away from home. With that in mind we hope you'll enjoy the cozy furnishings, kitchenette with all of your basic needs (including coffee and tea), bathroom products, metro smartcards for you to borrow, and tips to enjoy your stay. If you are checking in on a Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday, we'd be happy to stock the kitchen with fresh produce from the vendors at Eastern Market--just mention it in your message.

Just across the street you will find Eastern Market which is open Tuesday-Sunday and on the weekend the infamous flea market and street vendors come out--it is the most popular event on Capitol Hill! The city pool is just behind the Eastern Market building and you can access it for a small fee if you do not have a resident ID. Within one block there is a selection of coffee shops, bars, and restaurants--both delightful take out options and world class dining.

The apartment is accessed by a separate entrance so guests are free to come and go as they please. Everything is yours to enjoy as you wish!

We (husband and wife) live upstairs. We do travel occasionally and will let you know if we are going to be in town during your stay or not.

We are 2 blocks from the Eastern Market Metro Station which will take you directly to DCA airport and link you to the entire city via the orange and blue lines. Also many bus routes run through the area. Capitol Bikeshare has a bike station in front of our house which is a convenient bike rental option. Union Station is about one mile away and can be walked in 20 minutes with light bags or a short cab ride. If you are driving a car we can provide you with a guest parking pass for free on-street parking 24-hours/day.

We have an extra air mattress that can be used for up to two additional guests if you need it.

  • Everything was exactly as specified. Well equipped, clean, welcoming. I had lived in the neighborhood and this was a major draw for me in choosing this airbnb. I highly recommend it, especially to all those who think only of the Dupont Circle and Northwest DC sections.

  • The place was great and Suzanne was super helpful getting us the keys. Just as advertised!

  • The studio was exactly as described and we really enjoyed our stay at Susanne's studio. It is located in a great neighborhood near the Eastern Market only a few minutes walk minutes from the Blue Metro line which was most convenient to the the Mall. Additionally there are several good and reasonable restaurants very close by which added to the convenience of the studio. Although we had only brief contacts with Susanne and Rhett due to the work/travel schedules during our stay they were extremely helpful and cordial and made us feel quite welcome. The bathroom was great and the linens, towels and amenities were all first class. We would certainly stay with them again if we return to DC.

  • Susanne and Rhett are the most thoughtful AirBnB hosts I've had the pleasure of staying with. My fiance and I arrived at the apartment slightly jetlagged and were pleased to find a basket of snacks, coffee setup, and a pitcher of water waiting for us. There was also a box of helpful goodies like a DC travel book and cards for the Metro. These hosts really go above and beyond just giving you a place to stay.

    The studio is in an amazing location; the neighborhood is very cute and there are tons of great restaurants and shops just blocks away (not to mention the market itself). On nice days we walked to the Capitol and down the National Mall, but the Metro station is very close and makes it easy to get anywhere in DC.

    I'm so glad I found this place and I highly recommend that any person or couple visiting DC should stay here!

  • This was my first time using AirBnB, and I was so impressed - mainly because of my host! The apartment was clean, cozy and very comfortable. I immediately felt at home. It was clear that Susanne spent time ensuring that her guests had an amazing experience -- everything from the hanging basket of goodies to the ample and high-quality towels, I felt like I was really in my own apartment. Plus, the apartment was very conveniently located in a beautiful and safe part of DC. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

  • Location is perfect for a visit to DC. Easy access to transit system, & the Capital & Smithsonian is walking distance from apt. The room has everything a couple needs, & Susanne makes you feel very welcome.

  • The studio space was perfect- charming, comfortable, clean, and in a great location. I highly recommend.

  • Susan is a lovely and considerate host. The apartment location is unbeatable, all the major attractions are in walking distance as are a number of restaurants and shops. East Market subway station is one block away, union station is about 25 minutes walk, cab costs about $8 from there.

    Fittings, furnishings and conveniences are all very good. There is a washer and dryer if you want to do your laundry, nice bathroom, kitchen, bed, couch, tv, small dining table, towels, cutlery, crockery, etc. Compact but fully equipped little place.

    Really good place to stay.
