My English basement is your own private apartment that's steps from nightlife & close to all of DC's best neighborhoods!

Enjoy your own bathroom, kitchen, a smart TV with complimentary Netflix, and a private entrance and exit.

You'll be steps from DC's happening H st neighborhood, with scores of bars, restaurants, theaters & more! A free street car runs the length of neighborhood, and even to Union Station to catch your train or bus!

This an anti-sexist, anti-racist & queer-friendly space.

The space
Part apartment & part art gallery!!

My English basement is a newly renovated studio apartment with a unique bathroom featuring hand-painted Palestinian tiles above a vessel sink on a hand-crafted orangewood countertop, and a rain shower to die for!

The full kitchen includes a microwave and a full-size fridge.
The ROKU TV connects to a variety of your apps, and includes complimentary Netflix.

And to top it off, the space is decorated with gallery quality art from across the world! From intricate traditional banana leaf Maasai artwork, to cult classic movie posters from Pakistan, to art by Baltimore and DC natives, to a vintage 1940s hand-knotted rug from Iran!!

Where you’ll be

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

Trinidad is a hip, up-and-coming neighborhood next to DC's popular H street, a mile-and-half stretch of bars, art galleries and restaurants. The residents are a mix of young couples, older families, and some college students.

Trinidad is adjacent to the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and if you feel up to it, many of DC's museums, the Capitol building, etc. are about a 30-40 minute walk from the house.

A 2016 Washington Post feature on the neighborhood describes it as "a five-minute walk from the restaurant and bar scene along Northeast’s H Street corridor, a ten-minute stroll from Union Market, and less than a 20-minute walk from NoMa (and the Red Line)... the neighborhood itself has a lot going for it on its own. You’ll find 1920s rowhouses on narrow streets and a diverse community of longtime African-American residents, young families and couples of varying backgrounds (gay, straight, black, white), and students from Gallaudet University."

To be sure, the neighborhood is not the fanciest, but it is very hip and trendy!

I am a filmmaker and general busybody. I live with my dog, Kismet. Kismet enjoys going to talks and art shows around town, and having a relaxing drink with friends. I go to keep him company.

During your stay

We share a backyard, and you may run into me and my friendly dog in the backyard. Otherwise, I am happy to be as scarce or as present as you would like.
