About this listing
Our studio apartment in a classic DC rowhouse is 2 blocks from Metro (NoMa station on Red Line) near the hip H Street corridor & an easy walk to the Capitol & monuments. Union Market & REI's DC flagship are only 2 blocks away as well. Includes kitchen, coffee, tv/internet, washer/dryer, parking pass & more.
Our classic Capitol Hill rowhome was built in 1923, and still has original brickwork and trim throughout. The basement apartment, however, is brand new with all new high-end ceramic floors, granite countertops and window sills, and a sleek modern kitchen. It comfortably sleeps two adults.
We don't live in this apartment. It's completely dedicated for guests and so we don't have any clothing or other personal items anywhere. The closet & refrigerator are completely available and clear (except for an iron, spare linens, bottled water & condiments).
We're only two blocks from the NoMa-Gallaudet station of the Red Line of the Metro, only one stop from Union Station (or just an eight block walk). There is a Capitol Bikeshare rental station two blocks away as well, and Starbucks, Harris Teeter supermarket, and more just one block further. It's also only a few blocks to Union Market (a high end food market) or the dozens of bars/restaurants of H Street NE.
The apartment is accessed from the rear alley and is controlled by a keypad entry system so no keys are required and check-in is very flexible. We will provide you with a password for WiFi, and the TV has cable and a DVD player. There is no smoking or pets allowed.
Interaction with guests
Our family lives in an entirely separate unit upstairs. We have two small children, and while there is significant high quality soundproofing insulation, you may hear tiny feet at times! We are always nearby and available to give directions & suggestions, but otherwise we'll respect your privacy. With the keypad access to the apartment, you can arrive anytime without needing a key from us as well.
Other things to note
There are no steps required to access the apartment, but a wheelchair cannot navigate inside the bathroom. If you have any special requests to make your stay better, please let us know!
No smoking or pets are allowed. When you check out, please leave the heater/AC unit on, and put all dirty linens in the laundry basket (not the washing machine). Thank you for staying with us!

We love living in the NoMa/Near Northeast neighborhood of Washington, DC! My wife and I have two young children. While there is high quality soundproofing between our home and our basement rental, it can't stop all of the noise of playing with trains, blocks, and our other fun activities!
We've designed our basement apartment to accommodate friends and family on extended stays in DC, and are happy to make it available on Airbnb as well whenever we can. This is a very friendly neighborhood, with free and welcoming events, markets and concerts within a few blocks on most weekends.
