*Airbnb has notified all Washington DC hosts that, based on an agreement with DC city authorities, as of February 15th, 2015 Airbnb will be required to charge a lodging or hotel tax of 14.5% on the price of all short-term accommodation. This tax is over and above the prices quoted below and will be collected by Airbnb at the time of booking.
I regret this additional tax but should let you know that my rates have not changed in the last five years.
The daily price for one guest is $85.
The daily price for two guests is $99
The daily price for three guests is $113
If you are three guests, this bedroom is large enough to receive you. A child or additional adult can sleep on the comfortable, single Aerobed. The Aerobed, its bedding, additional towels and breakfast are gladly provided.
The weekly rate is a simple multiple of the daily rate.
PROCEDURE: Please contact host before booking. Post a recognizable picture and a profile, and send me any question you have and I'll respond promptly. Once you're decided, then click the "Book It" link.
LISTING SPECIFICS: This listing is for rental of the one large bedroom and private bath shown in the pictures, and not of the entire apartment. Pictures of the apartment give you a good sense of the whole environment. The shared, open-plan dining area & kitchen contain a sizable fridge, microwave, four-slice toaster, electric kettle, and rice cooker and are available for breakfast and meals, though not full, hot meals cooked on-site. A nice continental breakfast of cereals, toast, spreads, and coffee & tea is included. Our water is Brita-filtered, so bring your reusable water bottle!
Air conditioning is fully operational during summer months and heating is ample in winter.
LOCATION: Part of Logan and Downtown, the neighborhood is central, animated, and safe - a few blocks to hip 14th Street, a very pleasant walk to U Street or Dupont Circle, and less than a five minute walk to the Washington DC Convention Center.
Whole Foods Market, Capitol Market, Giant, Trader Joe's, a 24-hour Safeway, as well as several CVS, Starbucks, Caribou, and craft-coffee shops are all located within walking distance.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: Lots of great public transport nearby. Three different Metrorail stops, as well as Metrobus and Circulator bus stops are all within blocks. The closest Metrorail stop is only three blocks away.
BIKE RENTAL LOCATIONS NEARBY: After your booking is confirmed I'll point out all of these & many other neighborhood amenities.
CAR SHARE SERVICES:
In case you need to drive a car for just a few hours, DC has two good car-share services: Zip Car and Car2Go.
PARKING: If you'll be driving your own or a rental car, there are reasonably priced parking lots nearby.
IN WALKING DISTANCE: You really are in the center of everything here. Walk to the White House and the National Mall, and to many culture and entertainment venues; more than 25 cinema / movie screens, numerous museums, such as the Air and Space, the Natural History Museum, the American History Museum, the International Spy Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Hirshhorn -- (almost all the Smithsonian Museums!), the National Building Museum, the Newseum, Penn Quarter & Chinatown, and lots and lots of restaurants - from Indian, Ethiopian, Chinese & Thai, Spanish, Italian, American & French, sushi, burgers, pizza & subs - to hip venues like Busboys & Poets, Churchkey, Bar Pilar, El Centro DF, Cafe Saint Ex, Marvin, the Gibson, and lots of fine dining too - it's all yours.

We want your stay to be extra successful, so let's communicate fully at the outset.
Just to clarify -- this is not a rental of the entire apartment, but of one large bedroom and private bath, with reasonable use of the kitchen and dining area. The open-plan kitchen/dining area is available for breakfast (provided by host) and snacks or meals (provided by guests), but not for full, hot meals cooked on-site.
We want to receive friendly and responsible guests, who treat the apartment as if it were their own and leave it in the condition in which they found it. So, clean up after yourselves, please do not leave any uncovered food out, and kindly wash your dishes promptly. Also, there's no loud music after 10.00 PM. No parties, overnight guests, smoking or pets.
Type in the number of guests and your dates, and the site will calculate the cost of your entire stay. The weekly rate is seven times the daily rate.
When I/we are out of town, you're welcome to make use of the larger, common area. When I'm in DC I'll be occupying the second bedroom/office and second bath. But the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the flat, and everyone enjoys his/her privacy.
I highly appreciate considerate guests and really want you to have a great visit to DC!

I work as a liaison on professional & cultural international exchange programs --and my own creative work is as a filmmaker.
I'm interested in media and the visual arts, in design and architecture, in history and social justice. I love movies, listening to music, making images, and having a good conversation.
I've traveled and have lived abroad for a number of years. I speak a few languages and really enjoy meeting people from all over the world.
I'd like my guests to have a great time and I'm very pleased to provide a quiet harbor, share information, or make helpful suggestions.
