Private room in my Columbia Heights row house. 4 blocks from the Metro Green/Yellow line which is a direct route to downtown, museums, monuments, and shopping. The house is full of vintage finds, and I live with my girlfriend and two amazing dogs.
Awesome 100 year old townhouse in the middle of Columbia Heights filled with vintage modern home furnishings. The private room has a full size bed, LCD HD flat-screen tv with cable and Smart Blu-ray player with Netflix, Youtube, HBOGo, and access to my large DVD collection. There is a desk with computer, wireless internet access, Stereo with Ipod hookup, and a mini fridge with refreshments and snacks. I have two very cool dogs, Ollie is a very lazy 3 year old Am. bulldog/ Dane mix, and Eddie a sweet deaf Am. Bulldog mix, both are very friendly and eager to make new friends. I'm located only a few blocks from multiple metro stops, and shopping and nightlife in Columbia Heights. For additional nightlife options there are tons restaurants and bar choices in nearby Adams Morgan, Mt. Pleasant, and U St. In the summer I build custom bicycles in my workshop so I have bicycles to rent if you need a way to get around. There's also a private backyard with a fire-pit and koi pond for relaxing outside.
Guests will have access to a shared bathrooms, kitchen and the rest of the house. Feel free to cook a meal in my well stocked kitchen, or watch a movie or game in the living room, or just relax in your room.
Interaction with Guests
I or my girlfriend will be here to check you in and show you around. Once you've checked in you're free to come and go as you please. I often cook and if you're around you'll likely be invited to join us for a meal or hang out with our friends watching a movie or hockey game. If you like more privacy you can hang out in your room where there is a desk for getting some work done, and a tv with cable, and a smart blu-ray player with lots more entertainment options.
Columbia Heights is a fantastic place to live and visit. Convenient to everything going on in DC, the Columbia Heights Metro stop is your easy link to downtown monuments and museums. You can walk to restaurants and bars just up 11th st. or enjoy the fountain and community vibe in the
Columbia Heights center near the Tivoli Theater. U St. is a short walk to even more nightlife, restaurants, weekend flea markets, and even more shops. You'll really be in the middle of it all!
The metro Green/Yellow line is just a few blocks away, and is a short 5 stop trip down to the monuments and museums without having to change trains. About 30 minutes door to door. It couldn't be easier!
In addition I rent bikes on Spinlister. Just use your favorite search engine to find "profile/15341 on Spinlister"
Communication is the key, let me know what type of schedule you are going to be keeping and I'll be as accommodating as I can. I live here with my two dogs and cookie baker girlfriend. I work weekends and she works almost every day (owning your own business is so rewarding! ) but both of our schedules are very flexible. Once you're checked in you're free to come and go as you please, and use any of the common areas of the house including the kitchen and laundry. The older dog Ollie has the run of the house, but the younger one is crated when no one is home to keep him from getting into trouble. Both of the dogs are friendly and love any attention you give so dog friendly people are ideal for stays at our house. If you have any questions please ask, We love this place and think you will too...
Joel and Shannon are both very nice and lovely people. The room is equipped with everything you could possibly need, and I found the computer extremely helpful so that you don't have to travel with a laptop. Location is fantastic. It is a easy commute to all the places you would like to see. Dogs are big but very friendly. Enjoyed the stay!
Joel and Shannon were great hosts, I really enjoyed staying at their place! They were very welcoming and helpful, with lots of recommendations for what to do in the city. The room was really cozy and clean, exactly as described. Highly recommended!
Cool is an understatement for this place. Joel and friends made my stay fun and exciting. The place is really neat and you can't get a better host, fo sho!
A great stay. The description and pics were accurate, it was nice. I was very comfortable in my room and the hosts made me feel very at home in general. They also helped orient me in DC, and gave me some helpful advice. I definitely recommend a stay here.
What you get: a fun, interesting, eclectic house. Joel, who is super interesting. His girlfriend, who is an amazing baker. 2 dogs who just want love. Easy access to Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights. Well-stocked kitchen. In sum: Everything you need/want. Thanks for a great time. (Also- If you are lucky, you might get prototype bakery items!).
I have stayed with Joel for about three days while i was visiting washington and it was great. His house is very nice and cozy and so is the room. Joel provided me with evwrything i needed and also gave me great tips about the city. The dogs are very friendly too. Moving around was easy since the metro station is a few blocks away and the neighborhood seemed pretty quiet and safe. I would deffinetly recomend his place and if i e ver come back to Washington i will definetly stay there again. Thanks Joel for everything and go capitols...
