The Space

Come stay in the guest room of our 2 bedroom, 1 bath 1050 sq ft Columbia Heights row house. At the edge of historic U St and all the fine cuisine of 14th St, and three blocks from the Columbia Heights metro, this is the perfect location for your DC stay. Your cozy modern bedroom/study is equipped with a queen size memory foam bed, desk, dresser, and closet.

•5 minute walk from Columbia Heights Metro Station (green/yellow line with direct access to Reagan Airport, Washington Convention Center, Verizon Wireless Center)
•Free, safe guest parking pass available
•WiFi, Apple TV, Netflix, and HBO GO
•Private backyard
•Washer and drier in unit
•Cooking supplies, towels, and linens provided
•1.5 blocks to a Capital Bike-Share station and 16th/14th street bus lines

The bedroom, kitchen, and living spaces are fully furnished with modern and colorful decor and hardwood floors. The bathroom is shared and cleaned daily.

You’ll walk out the door into some of the most fun, diverse, and vibrant parts of DC. The yellow metro line comes straight from Reagan National Airport to the metro stop by our house, so no need to spend money on a cab. Target, Marshalls, and the Columbia Heights complex are a few blocks north in case you forget anything, but towels and bathroom items are provided during your stay.
Within walking distance are some of our favorite restaurants, including Café Saint Ex, Bus Boys and Poets, Marvin's, The Gibson, Estadio, Ghibellina, and your pick of restaurants on the 17th Street strip near Dupont and the 18th Street strip in Adam's Morgan. If you prefer to shop for groceries, there is a Giant and a Safeway within walking distance, and a bit farther is a Whole Foods, and a Yes Organic Market.

In the other bedroom, you will find a couple in our mid-twenties with our friendly corgi, Lady Bird. We work long hours, but we like to cook dinner after work and are happy to interact as little or as much as you’d like! Upon arrival, we'll give you a sense of our schedule for the time you'll be staying, and are definitely available to chat about restaurants, museums, night life, art galleries or anything else you're curious about during your stay.

We'd love to meet you and help enhance your time in DC, so please let us know if you are interested in coming into our home!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This is a nice place in Columbia Heights that is a short walk to the metro and accessible to other desirable parts of the city. A little on the small side, but the bedroom and accommodation are sufficient for one. Hosts were friendly and flexible with check-in/check-out. Would recommend!

  • Very welcoming hosts that give their guests plenty of space! Ladybird is very sweet, and polite! Great location with an easy walk through a safe neighborhood to all the sights downtown.

  • I had a great time at Alexa & Jay's place. They were always friendly and helpful, Ladybird indeed adorable and very well-behaved. Definitely recommend this place.

  • Hosts were a pleasant, friendly young couple. Helpful and accommodating. The location is good in that there is metro and bus close by and good restaurant selections within walking distance. The accommodations are basic: a comfortable bed, a quiet room with no street noise, no problem accessing the facilities, clean. The dog was a good hostess.

  • J'ai sejourne deux nuits ici avec un ami. La chambre etait conforme à la description. Nous avons pu nous y reposer apres nos journees.
    En revanche, nous deplorons le manque de communication avec les hotes. En effet, nous avons eu l'impression de deranger durant les 2 journees que nous avons passes chez Alexa et Jay.... De ce fait, le seul temps passe dans la maison etait pour dormir... Dommage.

  • Communication with Alexa and Jay was very good. They were away when we stayed, but we worked out a plan that worked great for us. They were even nice enough to allow us to use their garage for 1 night and visitor parking pass for the day we checked out. Their apartment is very cute. The room is nice and has what you will need. They are very organized and friendly. I recommend you stay here. It's only a few blocks to the Metro too!

  • I truly enjoyed staying with Alexa and Jay - although Alexa was working such long days that we didn't have the opportunity to meet.
    The apartment is very sweet and well situated in a "real" neighborhood close to public transport. It is also very clean and comfortable. I felt quite at home. Jay was quite solicitous about my comfort. Ladybird is adorable and minds her manners. I recommend this Airbnb lodging to any one traveling to our nation's capitol.

  • Everything was fine. This was my first Airbnb experience, so I did not have a comparative.

    May 2014
  • Alexa and Jay are great hosts. The Apartment has a great atmosphere, really charming and the guestroom was perfectly prepared. I loved their information brochure. If I will ever need a guestroom in DC again I will stay here.
