The space

As your host, I love helping people enjoy this amazing city. I live, work, and create art in DC. I try to create a personalized experience with a lovely, completely private stylish studio (a walk-out basement -- we live in the other unit above). However, I give you your privacy and have created an easy "self-serve" check-in/out system for your convenience. Meanwhile, I am available to make your stay great.

The studio is well appointed, has amenities you need and is close to wherever you need to go, quickly. It’s a short walk to the Metro (0.5 miles) and buses (2 blocks) and shared bike system. My recommendation is Lyft or Uber. 10-15 minute ride to major tourist attractions.
Very responsive host! Free STREET parking for one vehicle (with my parking pass).
The kitchenette has a sink, small refrigerator, microwave, kettle for boiling water, toaster and plates/cutlery/can opener/etc. There is no stove/oven.

Apple TV with Netflix, Hulu, etc. No cable or network channels.
Kitchenette with sink, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee, tea and basic dishware. No stove.
Plenty of fresh towels, linens, shampoo, conditioner, soap.

Comfortable bed
A helpful, friendly host

The entrance to the suite is in the back of the house. I will send you plans at least one day before your arrival.

Communication: I will be on call for the entire length of your stay, you can send me a call/text/email at any (reasonable:) time (unless it is an emergeny -- any hour) and I will respond promptly to any questions you might have. If I am traveling, I am still available by text/email, but always have an in town person on call for any needs.

Where you’ll be

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

A close walk to the very easy DC Metro/subway, yet tucked into a real DC neighborhood where neighbors know each other and many have lived here for a long time. At this time, there is major construction near the metro, though it is still accessible. However, I HIGHLY recommend LYFT Line and UBER. It is reliable, easy and very affordable.

My home is located in the Edgewood neighborhood of DC, which is a racially and economically diverse neighborhood that represents both newcomers and long time residents. The business owners and neighbors are friendly and I have always felt comfortable here.

A bit more about Edgewood: The neighborhood was once the estate of Salmon P. Chase: statesman, abolitionist and jurist. The neighborhood arose with the establishment of the Metropolitan Branch Line of the C&O Railroad in 1873. This line now includes the Metropolitan Branch Trail (a biking and walking trail) and the red line of the metro (subway). Within a few blocks are grocery stores, dry cleaners, drug stores, etc. There are many nearby options for eating and shopping. Directly at the Rhode Island Metro Station, you will find a CVS, Home Depot, major grocery store, and sit-down and fast casual restaurants, including Thai, Chipotle, and southern cooking. A 15-min walk in one direction takes to you the heart of Bloomingdale, where you will find great places to eat (my favorite restaurant, Red Hen, and a great pub called Boundary Stone), a yoga studio, and a thriving farmer’s market during the summer and fall (near a fabulous coffee shop called Big Bear). A 15-minute walk in another direction takes you to right next to the campus of Catholic University, which faces a brand new arts and entertainment development called Monroe Market, featuring artist’s studios, restaurants (a favorite: Busboys and Poets), a Barnes & Noble bookstore and a seasonal farmer’s market.

TRAVEL: My sophomore year in college I headed out of the U.S. for the first time with a backpack full of books to study literature and drama in the U.K. and Ireland and I've never looked back. I've since studied in Guatemala, Argentina, Italy and The Netherlands. I lived for years in Ecuador and Mexico. I fell in love with culture and how it shapes every part of our lives, even how we think. My best travel experiences are always the ones where I have an unplanned encounter with people I meet along the way. Two very dear relationships in my life today began in the Piazza del Campo in Siena Italy -- 10 years apart! HOSPITALITY: My love of hospitality began in Guatemala when I lived with a family for the summer and was deepened when I spent a month in a township in Capetown, SA. The house in Capetown was quite small. My friends insisted that I take their bed and they slept in the living room on the floor. I have since made my home a gathering space for friends and for years was part of an informal house of hospitality where we hosted guests from around the world, well before the days of Airbnb. Now that I have my own home in DC, I am THRILLED to be able to open it up to guests from Airbnb. I hope we get a chance to meet. LIFE IN WASHINGTON: I moved to DC five years ago. I have grown to love this city, its history, gorgeous architecture, different neighborhood vibes, endlessly interesting people, amazing food scene (cooking, and well, eating, are my other great passions), and plenty of free stuff to do. The day I moved into my house, although it was a cold December day, my neighbors came out to greet me. Within 2 weeks I was offered Christmas dinner by my next door neighbor because she knew I wasn't traveling to Minnesota for the holidays. DC is much more the nation's seat of power. Come meet those of us who begrudgingly accept "taxation without representation" because we love our city so much.
