We absolutely love living in our neighborhood, and we hope you will too. This is a comfortable two bedroom apartment in a century-old DC row house. Enjoy friendly and hip Columbia Heights, with easy access to all the sights and museums downtown.
Our lovely brick row house is split into two apartments. Come stay in the airy 2 bedroom apartment on our top floor. We live downstairs. A separate door goes from the entrance up to your space.
We're just above a great nightlife strip - 11th Street NW, with several restaurants and fun bars like The Kangaroo Boxing Club, The Coupe, and The Wonderland Ballroom right up the street. It's a short stroll to two Green Line Metro stations, grocery stores, and shops. Beautiful Rock Creek Park, U Street, Adams Morgan, and Mount Pleasant are all easily walkable, and there's a nearby bikeshare rack to boot.
The apartment offers old-school DC charm and painted wood floors. There are two real bedrooms with full beds. Soft pillows, fluffy towels (... an alarm clock). The bath has a claw-foot tub/shower.
You can enjoy the big bright living room, with an home theater projector that makes for a huge image. Think movie night. It's hooked up to cable TV and a stereo system. There's plenty of space to lay out a yoga mat, or feel free to strum a guitar or mess about on the 60's drum kit. For larger groups, the sofa pulls out into a queen-sized bed, and there's a nice air mattresses. There is a surcharge for extra adults beyond 4 guests - no charge for kids 14 and under.
We've decorated with carpets from travels to Afghanistan, Asia and elsewhere, art, and modern accents - plus good books to read during downtime.
If you like to cook, or want to have friends for dinner, there's a dining room and a galley kitchen with gas stove, microwave, refrigerator. Make smoothies, a souffle, or just toast and coffee. Out back, a rear deck overlooks our small urban homestead. Fresh herbs are right at hand. Honeybees buzz in a couple of top-bar hives. Our friendly cat, Batgirl, prowls the yard and loves people, but won't get in your space uninvited.
Close to two Metro stops on the Green line. Also, busses run regularly just up the street, and there's a bike share rack two blocks away.

Lexie and Graham are very kind hosts. They clearly care about their visitors and do their best to make it comfortable (e.g. parking pass, metro passes, checking in often, etc. etc.). The place is in a convenient location (I assume anyone visiting DC would seek out Columbia Heights for a reason) and made our quick 2 night weekend gateway with our young child very easy. Street parking is easy, everything is walkable or accessible via metro, plenty of natural light, ample space and the kitchen has everything one might need. The apartment is generally clean, although as noted by at least one other reviewer it really needs a serious vacuum throughout - there were dust balls, random bits of debris, hair, carpet fuzz, etc. on the floors which gave all 3 of us sneezing fits here and there. Overall, I would recommend their apartment to others and we would consider staying with them again in the future.
Lexie and Graham have a lovely place in a very cool neighbourhood, and they really go out of their way to keep their guests comfortable.
We stayed there with two couples and it was big enough. It is a big apartment with a nice vibe. We liked the location: we could easily park our car (they had a parking card for us of their neighborhood) and the metro in to the city is very close by. Only thing that was not so nice was that there was a lot of dust on the floor in the apartment. But I think this normally is not the case: Lexie and Graham had to leave town unexpectedly, so maybe that had something to do with it. For the rest we had a great time and we enjoyed the drums!
Lexie and Graham were very nice and attentive. My family stayed here when they were in town for my wedding. When Lexie and Graham had to leave suddenly for a family emergency, they took the time to make sure my family was OK, set up a neighbor to address any issues, bring up a ton of toys for my little niece, etc. They are outstanding hosts. And the house is awesome. Bright, spacious, clean and filled with entertainment options. My family loved the neighborhood, as it is close to Metro and packed with restaurants and shops. I can recommend this spot without a doubt!
We had a great time at Lexi and Graham's place. It was very cozy and well-equipped for our two families (4 adults and 3 small children) for a 5 night stay. The location was super convenient and Lexi and Graham, although we didn't get to see them much in person, were always available to us via messaging when we had questions. We would definitely go back and stay here again to explore the neighbourhood more as we didn't have much spare time away from wedding activities this trip.
Stayed here with a work colleague and enjoyed it tremendously. Well-equipped apartment with tonnes of charm, and the living room is something else. It's in a great neighbourhood too, with metro and all the amenities super close. I definitely recommend it.
Everything was perfect! Nice place to stay and well located. It was like being at home. Lexie and Graham are great hosts!
Such a comfortable apartment with very welcoming and warm hosts. The place was lovely, Graham and Lexie are superb people, and the location was nice. The apartment itself felt like a home away from home. I'd love to stay here again whenever I get another chance to visit D.C.
Lex and Graham were perfect hosts, very hospitable, nice and helpful for us. They provided us with the metro passes and guest parking pass for our car, along will all the information about the local places.
The house is amazing - whole second floor was available for us with bathroom, kitchen and living room + 2 br's.
The whole place is very artistic and beautiful, very clean.
Also we all were fascinated by location and neighborhood.
Would highly recommend staying with Lex and Graham for anyone visiting Washington.
Would stay again next time)
Our family of 5 had a great stay at Lexie and Graham's place! It was very spacious, cozy and inviting. We appreciated chatting wtih Lexie and Graham (and Sol!) and feeling very welcomed. There was so much great entertainment within the apartment - from a huge projector TV to playing the drums and guitars in the living room!
The apartment is right in between two convenient metro stops, and we easily explored the city during our 5-night stay! I highly recommend staying here and I would gladly return.
