3rd floor bedroom with PRIVATE bathroom/shower. Modern townhouse, close to DC Metro. Wi-Fi/TV in room. Walk to restaurants/shopping. Street parking available. Kitchen/fridge available to share.
We have a friendly, well behaved dog (Belle) who loves people but will not be in your private space.
Cozy third floor location offers awesome privacy. Tons of storage space if you need it. Two big windows with adjustable "black out" blinds so you can choose to "let the sunshine in" or snooze late in comfortable quietude. Third floor has it's own climate control. Adjacent room great for a yoga mat or two. Full closet with all the hangers you'll need. Comfy reading chair and a selection of books and movies to enjoy.
You can roam the whole house and share our great kitchen, fire up the grill and enjoy the front porch or backyard at your leisure. Plenty of room to store food/drinks. Whip up an espresso or a hot cup of tea.
We are keeping our bedroom, bathroom and office on the 2nd floor private.
Interaction with Guests
We're new at this, but our intention is to be available to the extent our guests are interested in hanging out. Happy to share our experience with the city, where and how to go, what's new, what's old and good, who's playing where, etc.
Most likely we will be around during our guests' stay but will make sure everyone has the space they want/need to get the most out of their stay.
Petworth is a great mix of quiet residential and happening new eating and shopping experiences, all within walking distance of our home. We are very close to a Capitol Bike Share stand and about 3 blocks or so from a Zip Car station. The Metro is about a 7 minute walk which will get you most places in the city in 20-30 minutes.
We love DOMKU. Scandinavian/Eastern European fair in a cool, funky environment (1/2 block away). CHEZ BILLY is a French bistro with a nice lounge. The PETWORTH CITIZEN is a brand new restaurant about a 1/2 block away as well, featuring pub food. QUALIA COFFEE is our favorite local coffee shop. They roast their own beans in a funky, laid back setting (Hipster alert!).
Rock Creek Cemetery is about a 20 minute walk but it is totally worth visiting if you're into amazing, historic cemeteries. Many, many interesting 'guests', huge vaults and monuments. DC's oldest cemetery (I think!).
Super convenient location to access all types of public transportation. 7 minute walk to the DC Metro (Green/Yellow Lines). From Reagan International it's a straight shot on the DC Metro Yellow Line to the Georgia Avenue/Petworth Metro Station which is just minutes from our house. Dulles and BWI are more complicated but we can help figure that out if you need us to.
Convenient Bus Stops within minutes. Capitol Bike Share 1/2 block away and Zip Car about 3 blocks away.
Parking is not included but street parking is typically available and we have 1 guest car pass for use.
Other Things to Note
We have a well behaved dog who will be an enthusiastic part of the welcoming committee but will otherwise give you your space (unless bribed with a treat). The Room is located on the 3rd Floor which requires walking up 3 flights of stairs. This is probably not suitable for anyone with any ambulatory difficulties. Our house is not "Child Proof"
We do not allow Pets
We do not allow Smoking inside (you may smoke outside)

The apartment is amazing with everything you need and more. Chris and Jean are super nice. Me and my mom had a wonderful time in DC. We will definitely come back again and hopefully have change to spend more time with Chris and Jean.
I had a great stay with Chris and Jean, and I would definitely stay with them again. They were easy to communicate with as we made the arrangements and very helpful with directions, etc. Their home is a few blocks from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro stop, in a quiet neighborhood. It’s beautiful, and the entire third floor is private for guests, including the bedroom, which is spacious and has a comfortable bed, a bathroom, and a sitting room. Also, too many amenities to list, including a great breakfast spread and excellent Wi-Fi. I enjoyed talking with Chris – especially comparing notes about playing guitar.
A complete home away from home.
Jean and Chris were such lovely hosts catering to every possible need. They gave us great tips and recommendations on the local spots and places downtown too! Their house is beautiful and the bedroom was comfy, spacious and had access to tv, the wifi was super fast also. Breakfast every morning was laid out and delicious!! The area felt safe and welcoming.
We really cannot recommend this place enough!
We are really going to miss Chris and Jean, they were so lovely to talk to and so easy to stay with! We will also miss their lovely dog Belle and the pies!!
If we ever are lucky enough to get to Washington DC again, we would definitely want to stay with these three again!! They were our favourite part about Washington!
C'était mieux qu'un hôtel 5 étoiles !!! Ils ont pensé à tous les détails qui rendent un séjour agréable !!! Le lit est bien ferme et confortable, la salle de bain très propre , beaucoup de place, le petit déjeuné servie, des belles conversations avec les hôtes , la nuit tranquille, le métro à 8 minutes de marche…. ET Chris et Jean m'ont énormément aidé !!!! Un grand MERCI !!!!
The place was perfect, we really liked it, Chris and Jean made us feel like in Home.
Chris explained us detailedly every aspect, restaurants, museums, and interest places in the city.
The brakefast was very good and on time every morning!!!!
Five Stars place, friendly and warm people.
Chris and Jean are the best AirBnB hosts anyone could ask for! Their place was modern, gorgeous and well-stocked in all aspects. They even offered a hearty breakfast which we thoroughly appreciated. Their dog Belle was also a sweet heart! The location of the house was also a convenient walk to the subway, from which it was a short 15-20 minute ride downtown. In addition, the Petworth Neighbourhood offered good dining options, such as Crane & Turtle and Dokmu. Thank you Chris & Jean for the wonderful stay, and if I come back to D.C. again, I will definitely stop by!
Chris and Jean are truly FANTASTIC hosts. Their home is impeccably clean and lovely, and they have thought of all the extra touches to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, including fresh flowers on bed stand, a metro pass and breakfast offerings. Also, the entire third floor of the condo is for guests, providing privacy. I enjoyed my stay and don't think I could have found a better host and accommodations in D.C.
