About this listing
Welcome to our cozy haven in the city. We would love for you to make yourself at home in our renovated basement apartment. It’s located in our 100 year old Capitol Hill row house and is just steps away from the Potomac Avenue Metro Station. The 1 bedroom apartment is perfect for a weekend getaway or a week-long business trip. But you would never need to leave! We live right upstairs, so if there is anything you need, just let us know.
Hope to see you soon!
We provide linens and towels, as well as free advice about what’s best to see in DC.
If you decide to venture out into the city, you can leave your car here. Parking is on-street and ample. (Longer term- off street parking can be arranged for an additional fee.) You can see the Metro station from our front steps and several bus lines run just half a block away. We've filled the bookshelf with several guides to DC. If you have any questions, we've definitely got answers.
The full kitchen includes a dishwasher, oven, granite counter tops, coffee maker and microwave, etc. Also included is basic service for 4, pots/pans and cooking utensils. We’ve stocked the fridge and cabinets with some basics – coffee, snacks, drinks, etc. And if you're hungry for something we don't have stocked, the grocery store is at the end of our street.
The full bathroom includes standing shower and washer/dryer. There is a spare hair dryer in case you've forgotten yours. We’ve put some detergent and dryer sheets in the bathroom in case you need to do a load of laundry during your stay.

Outside the bedroom is a granite topped desk/office station that is perfect for a business traveler. The apartment has cable TV and wireless internet… and ever important for those Washington, DC summers… Central A/C!

Hello... We're Helen and Gabe. We've taken over our friends' house on Capitol Hill and have taken over operating the AirBnB in the basement apartment to go with it! The basement apartment is a great place to stay if you're in town for a few days of business or if you're here to sightsee.
We ask that you treat the apartment as if it were your own... and please make yourself at home!
