Chekesha is a wonderful host. She took very good care of me and made feel very comfortable and welcome. I would recommend any person to stay here, who wants to have a room for a few nights.
This place is easily accessible to very busy 8th street Eastern market area and the union station by metro, metrobus and the dc circulator buses.
Chekesha was a really great host! She went out of her way to let me drop off my bag early even though she was not home. She actually let me meet her downtown while she was at work which I thought was above and beyond what a typical host would do to accommodate a guest. The room and bathroom were clean and were what I expected. The bed was extremely comfortable which was a huge plus. I stayed on a Friday night and the only draw back was a neighbor decided to light off fire works at 10pm which lasted about 30 minutes but of course that was outside of Chekesha's control. Chekesha was very friendly and a good communicator. Overall, I had a great experience and would strongly recommend this listing!
Chekesha was a great host. I felt at home from the first second. She even offerd me to drop me of in the city, well she did.. :) Everything was easy going. The room was very tidy and comphy . Free parking in front of the house. I can highly recommend this home during a stay in Washington. It´s really close to the mall. Only a few stations by Metro. Thank you Chekesha, you made my day and I had a brilliant start on my trip through the US.
Hier das wesentliche nochmal auf Deutsch. Sehr empfehlenswert. Sie ist eine sehr nette Gastgeberin. Der Raum ist sehr sauber. Die Metro ist in Laufdistanz. Parken direkt vor dem Haus. Es war ein sehr entspannter Aufenthalt.
Chez Chekesha nous étions comme à la maison ! C'est une hôtesse vraiment disponible et pleine de gentillesse pour moi et mon fils, elle nous a montré comment aimer Washington DC et elle a tout fait pour répondre à nos demandes. La chambre était parfaite, comme décrite, spacieuse avec un grand écran de télévision. Une salle de bain agréable aussi et propre. Dans le quartier nous avons aussi découvert une très belle galerie d'art. Nous reviendrions avec beaucoup de plaisir chez Chekesha ! Thank you very much for your hospitality :-)
Chekesha is wonderful and the place was as described! She's in the process of renovating but the house is still very clean and well decorated. You have your own air conditioner and you can control the temperature in the room. She is an event planner so she know's a lot of great places to go to in the city and things going on in the area. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, and she has vegetables growing out front which is awesome because my boyfriend and I love to cook and grow food and she shared some seeds with us. I would stay again in a heartbeat!
Chekesha's hideaway is in a great location. I had easy access to the area I needed to be. Uber also is well aware of the location and will take you there. Nearby are great places to shop and eat.
Staying with chekesha was such a pleasure. She was so accommodating and friendly, and gave me wonderful tips about traveling around the city and good places to visit and eat. The room was exactly how it looks in the pictures and was very comfortable. The house is currently being renovated so there was some clutter but it wasn't an issue at all. I would absolutely stay with chekesha again!!
