One small room in a comfortable, basement apartment. It is an owner-occupied AirBnB, an older place, not at all new and modern, built in the 1940s. It's best points are a great location and quiet, comfy bedroom. One block from metro and bus lines, walking distance to dozens of restaurants and a very short walk to the Capitol and National Mall. Bathroom is shared with only with me. I have two friendly cats named Cricket and Dede who are very affectionate and always welcome playtime with guests.
