About this listing
Spacious private room w/ queen bed in a neighborhood of other single family homes. 1 mile from Ballston Metro Station, w/ many new restaurants & bars. DC is 10 min drive/ Metro ride. Reagan Nat'l Airport is 15 min drive.
Front view of the house w/ wrap around porch - perfect for morning coffee or relaxing in the evening.
Our house is a craftsman style with wrap around porch in a nice, safe neighborhood of other single family homes. Street parking is free and readily available.
The room comes with a comfortable queen bed and Wifi access. There is a spacious bathroom just across the hall that is on suite to the other listed room and shared with other AirBnb guests if the second room is occupied.
This listing is for one room with queen size bed, and we have another listing as well for a second bedroom with a queen size bed. So this space would be great not only for a party of one or two, but a family with 1-3 children or two couples as well.
We have lived in the DC area for over 20 years and are happy to recommend places to visit, lesser known areas of interest, and restaurants and bars to try.
Access to large private bathroom w/ shower and tub, fresh towels and toiletries provided. If both rooms are rented then the bathroom is shared with the other guests. It's a large bathroom with two vanities and a shower/tub so sharing is easy. May have use of washer and dryer. Also available for guests' use on the first floor is the sitting room with wood burning fire place, TV area, dining room, and chef's kitchen. Guests may use the front porch, back deck, and gas grill.
Interaction with Guests
We provide a tea and coffee for guests. We love to cook so if guests have similar tastes for dinner time and schedules allow we would be open to sharing a meal or two.
We are 1 block from the Bluemont Junction Bike-Running Trail and W&OD Trail which takes you to the Ballston area (where you may catch the Metro) and then to East to DC, and as far West as Purcellville, VA.
The house is just over 1 mile from the Ballston Metro Station (15 minute walk) and located near three bus lines. Access to I-66 and I-395 is approximately a mile and DC is about a 10 minute drive. Regan National Airport is less than 15 minutes away and once you get on I-66, Dulles Airport is about a 30 minute drive. The Ballston area continues to grow, and currently has many new bars and restaurants along Wilson Blvd, with other great spots close by along the Orange Line corridor in the Clarendon and Courthouse areas.
Other Things to Note
We share our home with a very sweet Irish Wolfhound who loves to make new friends. She is great with anyone, especially kids.
Please let us know if you have any question, as we want to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We don't have too many rules. We just ask that you not smoke in the house. We also do not allow pets. Our Irish Wolfhound satisfies our one pet lifestyle. :-)
Carla, her husband, and Maeve (their adorable dog) were super inviting and I felt very comfortable staying in their beautiful Arlington home.
It's a very quaint and beautiful neighborhood and right around the corner from restaurants and walkable areas. I was a bit nervous about the location and being able to get an uber for my conference I had to attend but I got an uberX within 10 minutes every time I had to leave for work or to the airport.
Carla was a very nice host. We had a perfect stay with her and her hudband. The neighborhood is quite and very relaxing with a lot of green areas. It is ideal for relaxing after a demanding day in D.C.
Wir waren überrascht über so viel Komfort. Unsere Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die beste Unterkunft bis her!
It was a really beautiful experience. Carla and Judah are very nice and helpful.
They gave us very good advice and the house is fantastic. It is clean and the room is comfortable and with a big bed.
The location is good. It is very calm.

The hosts were welcoming and flexible. The neighborhood is very quiet and close to everything, also right next to the trail.

About the Host, Carla
One of the things my husband and I have in common is a love for travel and an appreciation of different cultures. We also enjoy entertaining friends and family in our home, so joining Airbnb as a host was a natural step for us.
I grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina and am happy to call the Washington, DC area home. When we are not spending time with family or friends, you will find us training for triathlons (him), dabbling in music or photography (me), or trying out a new recipe (both of us).
