About this listing
City living at it's best. Access to multiple transportation options and walkable to Hill destinations. Guest room accommodates (2) with private bath on second floor of historic row home.
House is full of whimsy and is perfect for a short term or long term visit.
I'm a hospitality professional and am happy to offer my renovated 1890's home for guests vising Washington DC. Just 1 block from bus stops and a block and a half from the Potomac Ave Metro Station on the Blue and Orange line. It's a 15 minute walk to the Capital building. Great restaurants and neighborhood perks like Eastern Market, Barrack's Row, the National's Park and RFK Stadium all within walking distance too.
Bikeshare and supermarket within a block too.
Your space is the Guest room with your own Bathroom.
The room has a wonderful pillow top queen mattress, a desk, two windows facing west and other amenities for a comfortable stay. Umbrella provided and other conveniences like fresh towels, sheets, maps and other information available. The 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home has blonde bamboo floors, mostly new appliances, WiFi, sklylights, a water filtration system and other amenities. The house is well appointed with whimsy and charm. Washer/dryer is available for use as well. BONUS -- you get your own bathroom too and yes, there will be little soaps and shampoo for you!
There is now cable tv in the bedroom.
My living room has a 55 inch tv bachelor pad style set up with upgraded cable package as well as Amazon tv and Netflix.
Longterm stays negotiable.
My cat Stoli-O lives here too. He has lots of personality and can be kept out of your way if you prefer -- otherwise he might want to curl up with you.
I'm fluent in Polish and can understand some Spanish (I'm working on that!)
During your stay you can expect that I will always offer you food and drink. I will leave out breakfast and I keep a beverage cooler stocked. I sometimes work long hours and you many not see very much of me, but I will leave you notes checking up on you or with an invitation. I will mostly leave you alone but know that I am available to help guide you with recommendations. Your feedback is also important to me because of my commitment to your comfort. So if something's quite not right, please let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know what questions I can answer for you.
Guest has access to the laundry room, living room, kitchen, dining room and backyard patio. This is all shared space.
I respect your privacy and expect the same.
Interaction with guests
I will always try to greet you personally upon arrival.
During your stay you may or may not see me for a few days as some mornings I'm out of the house by 6am and others 9am. Some nights I'm back by 6pm or well after midnight. My interaction with you depends on the week for me and what might be going on. If I'm out of town during your stay, my neighbor will come over to feed Stoli. If you're interested in feeding him so you have complete privacy, just let me know.
My cleaning lady comes every other Saturday late mornings. She will clean your bathroom and straighten up your bed. Otherwise she's cleaning all of the shared space too.
Other things to note
I keep a beverage cooler for guests. Some AirBNBers leave extra soft drinks, beer and such. I'm just paying forward!
Clean as you go in shared areas.
Notice of company or guests of more than 1 must be given in advance.

I've updated my profile with groups!
Musician -- no, Groupie -- YES! I love live music. I average 15 to 20 shows a year. 9:30 Club, Black Cat, some of the bigger venues too. I've even travelled & booked trips around concerts. I have an electric guitar at home (which I have not started lessons for because I'm not sure if I'm a lefty or righty or a lefty who plays righty). Additionally, it has been a dream of mine to play the drums since I was 10 years old. Rock Band just doesn't even come close.
Running has been on hold because spinning and classes at Biker / Barre are so awesome. I ran the Napa to Sonoma half marathon a few years ago and cross trained with the Wine Aficionados. Most people don't realize there are some very good Northern Virginia wineries an hour's drive from DC. Barrel Oak and Chrystalis are two to get shout outs. I'm more of a Vodka Aficionado, but I can appreciate good grape too.
So -- if you come out to DC and like concierge recommendations and are interested in a show, good food and/or drinks.... welcome home!
