Please make sure you lock doors when you come and go.
Please make sure you keep windows closed when the AC is running. DC is very hot and my AC works great but it can't cool the whole city.
I was very pleased with my stay. Matthew was very welcoming, gave me some nice recommendations about local spots, and gave the quick tour of the place. This is everything I wanted, a nice room and private bath and quiet. The neighborhood is quiet, yet just a few blocks from downtown, the metro, and lots of places to eat or have coffee. Very clean and very comfortable bed.
We were given clear instruction on how to enter house. The room was adequate- a good deal for the price. We never saw Matthew. Well that is not true, I saw him briefly in the hallway washing sheets for his next guest. If you are choosing this place thinking you will have a local to ask question of, that was not an option here. Overall the location was not bad. A quick walk to restaurants and a longer walk to the mall.
Matthew was a fantastic host - easy to communicate with at all times and very flexible with our crazy schedule. We only stayed one day, but wished we stayed for longer since his room was amazing. The entire town home was air conditioned which is really nice to come back to after a hot summer day in DC. His place is centrally located and is close by to all the hot tourist spots. He provided clean fresh towels, there were toiletries (shampoo, conditioner) and a major major plus for me was the hair drier (so clutch). Would highly recommend this place.
Flexible and friendly host! It was no hastle staying with Matthew. The room is well within walking distance of t.ex the White House. For other sites such as Capitol Hill I would recommend Uber. I can recommend Matthews place!
My husband and I spent 4 nights at Matthew's place July 1-5. It was a perfect location for touring around DC. It took us around 40 min to walk to the Capitol from his place, but only around 20 min to the White House. We only met Matthew once during our stay as we were out touring from early morning until the evening, but he seemed very nice from our brief encounter. Prior to and during our stay he was also very fast at responding to inquiries by text. Matthew's place was neat and tidy and he said we were welcome to use the kitchen. The unit is a spacious bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom had a full size tub with shower (good water pressure), a large vanity area around the sink, large mirror and, of course, a toilet. In addition to the bed there was a large table I used for a desk, bookcase with an assortment of books, large bedside table, bench and a walk-in closet -- so lots of room to store luggage, etc. This is not a luxury unit, but we felt it was a really good value, an excellent location and we would happily stay here again. Thanks Matthew for opening up your home to us.
I hadn't been to DC since High School, this was truly an amazing time! Matt is a great host and the room was perfect! The location is definitely brag worthy, blocks from the monuments! He pointed us to 14th which was perfect. Had an awesome meal and checked out some great bars! Met this awesome pedicab driver who brought us around the neighborhood. My only regret is not booking for another night, we'll definitely be back!
We loved Matt's space. We drove to the city and appreciated being able to leave our car parked while we explored on foot. I really appreciated the soft bed after a long day, too!
