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.

The 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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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!).

Getting around

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"

  • what a great stay! Unfortunately we haven't met Jean but Chris was a fantastic host. Thanks for everything we'd come back any time :)

  • We really enjoyed a lot our days in Chris house. He welcomed us in a wonderful and very kind way, explaining us everything and he offered us cheese and grape! Unfortunately his wife was away for family reasons, but we met Bella, their cute dog. The breakfast was awesome with coffee, tea, yogurt, croissant, bagels, granola, Nutella.... The room is very big and comfortable and the neighborhood is safe. About ten minutes walk from the metro station. We surely suggest to book there!

  • Chris was a wonderful host (Jean was visiting parents) and allowed us to drop off our bags at the house, and lent us their metro cards even though it was way to early for us to check in. He was very helpful for helping us get around the city. and the next day he was thoughtful enough to give us a ride to the bus station to save us from catching a cab. Definitely staying with them again if I ever visit DC again.

  • Extraordinaire expérience.
    Jean et Chris ont été des hôtes fantastiques.
    Très disponibles et accueillant.
    Le description correspond parfaitement et le confort est exemplaire.
    Le petit déjeuner du matin était digne des plus grands hôtels.
    Nous avons beaucoup apprécié Belle, le chien adorable.
    La station de métro est à 5/10 minutes de marche.
    Merci encore pour cet accueil.

    Extraordinary experience.
    John and Chris were fantastic hosts.
    Very helpful and welcoming.
    The description fits perfectly and comfort was exemplary.
    The morning breakfast was worthy of the greatest hotels.
    We enjoyed "Belle" the adorable dog.
    Subway station is 5/10 minutes away.
    Thank you again for this welcome.

  • Chris and Jean were quick to respond and communicated very well. Their description and photos are spot-on. We've stayed in some very nice hotels, resorts, traditional b-n-b's. We try to stay in boutique hotels including Kimpton and Joie de Vivre when possible, but this time we wanted to try Airbnb and we were trying to see DC on a tight budget. Our stay at Chris and Jean's third floor resort was as good (if not much better) than any of the many places we've stayed. What you see in the photos is what you get and that is very clean, very comfortable, very relaxing accommodations. The best part about our stay was how well Chris and Jean read our moods and knew when to be available and when to let us relax and have our privacy. Did I mention that breakfast was perfect! There was plenty to choose from and they made it very easy for us to serve ourselves. Can't wait to visit DC and Chris and Jean's again!!

  • This was our first airbnb experience and it truly exceeded all of our expectations! Chris and Jean are such nice people and really did anything to make our stay as comfortable and convenient as possible - and they succeeded.
    We could not have had a better base to explore DC and we highly recommend anyone visiting DC to stay with Chris and Jean.

    June 2014
  • Chris and Jean were super helpful even before we arrived. They were flexible with us arriving early and leaving our luggage at their place. They were friendly and helpful, providing us with metro cards and directions around the city. Their place was also super close to the metro station making it easy to get to all the monuments/museums/downtown. They provided a great breakfast and other extra services beyond which I have ever experienced with airbnb. I really enjoyed staying with them and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is considering staying with them !

  • I have stayed in a lot of airbnbs, and Chris and Jean just *nailed it*. Seriously, in terms of hospitality, little extras, gorgeous space, great location -- you just couldn't do better. They are both so warm and welcoming, but also let you have your space. The room is pristine, and the entire setup (breakfast, shelf in fridge, cheese plate on arrival!) is completely lovely.

    For anyone taking a look and feeling like maybe it's a little far out of the "main action" -- it's just a few blocks from a Metro station that'll zip you right to the heart of things, and the Petworth neighborhood is itself terrific.

    Thanks, Chris and Jean, for a wonderful stay.

  • We loved everything about staying at Jean and Chris's house. It was perfect from the beginning to the end.
    They welcomed us in their house as if it was ours, Jean Left us many little attentions like snacks, water in the fridge, breakfast was already prepared when we got up with ton of very good stuff!
    Their company was the most pleasant you can hope for.
    During our stay, we had great talks but they also let us have some privacy.
    The house is beautiful, clean, and the bedroom is more like a studio, we had a whole floor with living room, bathroom, bedroom!
    We hope we can stay again in their home and we were sad to leave them.
    Thank you so much, you were the best!
    Ps: we give a little pat to Belle!

  • Chris and Jean are loving and welcoming hosts. The room was fantastic, it is exactly as in the pictures. There is a big private bathroom. We were amazed most by the superb breakfast that was served to us every morning. We recommend it to all who want to visit DC, the fact that it isn't in the city centre is a charm and a welcoming change after a long day. We'd definitely stay again!
