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)

Absolutely fabulous stay here! From the minute we arrived Jean and Chris were so welcoming and friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Their home is beautiful and so close to the metro. There are so many little touches here that really make a difference and I would highly recommend staying with Jean and Chris and of course the beautiful Belle.
Christ and Jean are very friendly and offered me and my friend a really nice and clean room to stay. They prepared everything we needed like metro cards, maps, great breakfast and they even printed out the restaurant menu for us! Thank You very much. 房间非常的干净，很温馨很漂亮。主人准备的非常齐全，连地铁卡和附近餐厅的菜单也准备了。人非常的好。一切都很满意，是我住过最好的住家 :)
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.
Chris and Jean were amazing hosts and we had a wonderful time in Washington D.C. They gave us a really warm welcome, explained us everything we needed to know about the house and the area around and also gave us a lot of information about the city and other locations for shopping or for dinner. We felt like home right from the beginning and you get to feel that they really care for you
The apartment is really amazing. You have a lot of space, it’s very clean and very comfortable. Also they make a really delicious breakfast every morning. We absolute recommend this apartment. We wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in DC.
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 !!!!
