About This Listing
Modern 1BR, with 2 chaises and a daybed that splits to twins. Outdoor hot tub. Less than 3 blocks to metro/Marriot, 6 blocks from the zoo, and only two stops from downtown. Walking distance to restaurants, running trails, and other awesomeness.
Zebrawood floors, brightly colored furniture, a full kitchen, and funky modern touches make for a fun getaway, while allowing the flexibility for entertaining. I've listed the apartment to accomodate 4, but it could likely accomodate kids on the chaises as well. The bathroom has a shower and bath. The apartment has a separate entrance in the back of the house. There is no parking available. The bed is a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress. Less than two blocks from the Marriott and 4 from the Omni Shoreham.
Cable, wifi, the hot tub.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the house above the apartment, and unfortunately our thermostats are connected, but I am happy to set it at your desired temperature. Happy to answer any questions and guide you (I know a buncha delivery food options and some cool running trails.) But I'll take my lead from you and fully respect your privacy. If you look at my reviews, its clear that the folks who want a cool space in a great location but can be flexible with glitches that happen in houses and a host that works fulltime and travels a fair bit find the space spectacular and a great deal. Those that want a whole lot of interaction, breakfast, and "glasses of milk when they arrive" without warning in advance may well be disappointed. I give out great ratings to guests and will do everything I can to make your stay enjoyable I just wanted t
As a single mom with a young (but won't disturb you) child, Woodley Park makes us both happy. It's safe and beautiful and an easy walk to the zoo, farmers market, and Rock Creek Park trails. A quick metro to the monuments/museums and a short Uber away from 14th, H, and U streets to say nothing of the Sushi, Lebanese, Indian, Organic Chinese, and other assorted restaurants just blocks away. We alternate between wandering around neighborhood or hanging out in the hot tub under the trees and are very happy either way!
Metro, Uber, and taxis are all easy to come by.

Alison was very timely and responsive to my questions. Her place is perfect for what I needed! Close to Woodley metro and Omni Sheraton where I attended a conference. Tons of great restaurants and a market in walking distance. House is on a side street in a safe, quiet, beautiful neighborhood. Bonus is that it is close to the zoo. So I could take my morning walk there and it was empty and quiet in the morning, unlike the city streets in the area that are bustling with commuters. definitely will be back when business brings me to DC.
Stayed here for a girls trip of 4 friends. A fantastic stay. Safe, tree lined neighbourhood only an 8 minute walk to the subway. Apartment isn't so much a basement apartment but rather is on the bottom floor out looking the backyard - feels more like a treehouse with fresh hip decor. Apartment was spacious and very clean with comfortable beds and couch.
Alison's apartment was wonderful! It was exactly as depicted. It was a nice and cozy apartment, just a short walk from the Metro. Loved the surrounding residential neighbourhood!
Location is everything, and Alison's place was perfect in every way. Situated on what is essentially a cul-de-sac on a quiet tree-lined street, and a hop, skip, and jump to the Metro, made our stay here exactly what we needed it to be. The apartment was a lovely retreat after long days out and visiting with family.
We really appreciated Alison's attentiveness to the air conditioning situation. Our visit coincided with an early heatwave and temps hovering near 90. Since the heat & a/c controls for the unit are currently upstairs (something she said will be changed in the future), she was quick to respond to a request for warmer air. Her adjustment was perfect, and we northern Californians were grateful for days of non-freezing air!
The only "issue" we experienced was upon arrival: the apartment hadn't been cleaned and reassembled after the previous guests. Alison was sooo apologetic and had the space turned around while we were out to dinner. A refund on the cleaning deposit was offered and graciously accepted.
We'd definitely stay here again, and hopefully, that will be during a cooler time. It was too warm to even think about using the hot tub!
About the Host, Alison
Thanks for visiting my page. I've just remodeled my basement apartment and will be renting it out when I don't have friends staying with me. It's a pretty awesome space. My nextdoor neighbors have a similar apartment listed here as well, so if you're travelling with a group/two families. Rent 'em both!
