You will love the comfort and serenity of this special room and the privacy most people thrive to experience in vacation stays or extended stay opportunities. What a great opportunity to experience NW downtown DC & all conveniences of "Location."
This will be my first full year using AirBNB and I have thoroughly enjoyed booking other seasoned travelers as myself. I have rented other rooms and apartment spaces for more than 12 years. We are currently taking reservations for this 1 bedroom condo size unit with a short walk to the vibrant U Street Corridor in NW Washington, DC! We are in the nearby vacinity of a renowned famous "Ben's Chili Bowl" Restaurant where President Barack Obama and other notable celebrities had visited. There are many restaurants and entertainment within a radius of two miles.
Local transportation is outside the front door. Street Parking is available (a visitor's pass is also available). Our metropolitan subway system (Red & Green/Yellow lines) is only within 3 to 4 easy blocks of walking. The US Capital and National Monument can be seen from the front of our building.
This condo size unit is comfortable and was remodeled more than a year ago. Ceiling fans and soring 12' ceilings are displayed beautifully. Because of the popularity of this area, the rooms become occupied quickly. The building is three stories tall with basement and built in early 1900's as similar to the brownstones in metropolitan New York City. Has some unique architecturally designed features. There are stairs from the front entrance that moves into a long hallway and wraps up two sets of 3 steps, then up to second and third floors. There is usually someone there to greet you (mostly me) so I will happily help with your luggage.
The condo is available for a reasonable minimum nightly stay or negotiable Extended-Stays, OR Vacation Rental Property. Holiday season bookings for short-stays may be slightly higher! Also, see our Inauguration Special in our Other Listing, entitled: "Best Inauguration Special in DC!" Can occupy from 2-4 adults and/or children combinations with request. On-site laundry is available for guests on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
THIS IS A ONE BEDROOM, 2 PEOPLE-SIZED JETTED JACUZZI BATH UNIT. Furnished areas which includes a queen-sized bed, new futon & air bed, expanded cable television package, seasonal/central air condition or heat, electric/gas & water utilities, a full-size kitchen with nice deck attached leading down to a private entrance/exit (that has been renovated, and we added a private parking space). There's a private bathroom area with individual & complimentary bath welcome products. Comfortable & fully cleaned bed linens and bath towels are included.
This unit can also be expanded to be combined as a two bedroom, two bath rental with access to the whole floor! The other private room is a master suite with a King-size bed, and another separate but smaller full bathroom. If you need these two bedroom combinations, make sure you specifically ask in your request to get the combination rate. We encourage you to take advantage of any of our current special pricing, when available.
We have qualified pest control services a few times a year and seasonal cleanup or construction services for completing assigned renovated tasks. Using AirBNB has helped me to fine tune my renovations with your suggestions and I thank and welcome anymore suggestions you may have.
This unit includes continental breakfast that is kept in the privacy of the kitchen which includes cereal, oatmeal, toast or bagel, coffee and variety of teas, milk and juice. If you find anything else in the refrigerator (like snacks) that you want during your stay, you may have it. Recent favorite snacks our guests enjoyed: Rice & Wheat Crackers, varieties of Safeway Select Trail Mix, KASHI Trail Mix Bars, Popcorn, Werthers Coffee/Swirl Candy, and a very delicious spread from Trader Joes called Speculoos Cookie Butter!
In the meantime, after you confirm your stay (at least one week in advance of check-in) let us know your choice(s) in cereal, milk (whole, 2%, 1% or skim) and what type of snacks you enjoy. If you are confirming within the current week, we can not guarantee your favorite choices but you will have a choice of one of the aforementioned items. We can also order your groceries for delivery as an added service. A Harris Teeter, Whole Foods & Safeway Stores and other nearby local markets are not far from this location.
The neighborhood is as safe as most places in the NW DC area. DC starts to get very busy in May as the temperature warms up. Travelers are flocking to this area lately! As in any travel experience, it's very understandable how we all have to be observant of our surroundings.
Our neighborhood is safe and since the visitors are increasing, we notice more patrol throughout the District of Columbia. We are not far from the many entertainment activities too. Getting around in DC is very easy via public transportation and we have very easy access. Just let me know where you are interested in going and I can direct you.
The Howard Theatre is a couple of blocks easy walk and had their grand re-opening ceremonies in early April 2012 and now sell concert and other entertainment tickets. See the HowardTheatre page.

Limousine, SUV or Sedan Transportation services to/from all Airports, Union Station for Amtrak & MegaBus, and Greyhound Stations are also available within the premises. Ask about my driving tour rates. We are open for sight-seeing driving tours throughout the metropolitan areas of Washington DC or Baltimore MD.
Upon check-in, each guest should have a photo ID available to review & copy for our files, unless you completed the verification section of your AirBnB page. Then, your ID will not be necessary.
All of the rooms listed on my pages are arranged for your comfort, security, and as much privacy as feasible, to give you during your stay. This suite room, in particular, is more Condo style, and is very private with options to enter or exit from the back deck, or front hallway. So, interaction is more up to you and how much social time you would like, or keep it private! Its up to you.
We are on the border of Bloomingdale, Shaw and LeDroit Park Neighborhoods. Great location with a Walkscore of 85 and a TransitScore of 92 (Riders Paradise).

We stayed for a week in this beautiful suite, and it was wonderful just as our first time staying here had been! Our hosts were welcoming, kind, helpful and were very quick to resolve any issues we came across. The apartment has plenty of room for comfort, but at the same time is very cozy. All the supplies and miscellaneous things one may need are generously provided. So much better than any hotel! Very comfortable bed and furniture, well-equipped kitchen with all of the basics, and an amazing spa in the bathroom. I cannot recommend this space enough!
Mr. Gerald's place was a perfect stay. Very close to the U Street area with tons of bars and restaurants and of course the metro (very close to Shaw metro, too). The room had an amazing bathroom with a huge tub and stand-up shower. The kitchen and balcony were an awesome addition to the stay, as well. Mr. Gerald is a gracious host that'll help you out with anything you need to enjoy your stay and the city. Will definitely be looking to stay again.
We rented both Edmond's regular place and the extra bedroom across the hall. The place was nice and cozy and quite comfortable. Having the back deck was very nice, and parking!! In general, it was nice and clean and Edmond was very nice and helpful. One night the cable went out and he was right there to deal with the cable company to get it working again. The kitchen was acceptable stocked and worked well for all of us to sit around talking in the evening. The mattresses, pillows and linens are all good. My back was happy! I feel that his pictures do not do the listing justice.
My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay in Ed's Washington apartment for six nights. Ed and his wife were very welcoming and even had gone to the trouble of supplying breakfast cereal and soy milk according to our vegan requirements. The apartment was very comfortable with a bathroom equipped with a huge spa, a kitchen stocked with a variety of teas, coffees and spices for us to use, a back deck to enjoy the spring sunshine and a very comfortable bed. The apartment itself is located in a quiet neighbourhood within a 10 minute walk to a subway station, just a small number of stations from the centre of the city. After welcoming us, Ed and his wife left us alone to enjoy the apartment but we always knew that they would be available to answer any questions should we have them. We had a wonderful time in this home away from home and would highly recommend the apartment to anyone intending to visit Washington DC. Thanks Ed.
Edmond and Ms Mac are the coolest people ever. Great apartment, easy to get to from metro, a bit of a walk but a scenic route if you take the Howard Theatre route. The metro is very close to everything you need to see as a tourist, about two stops from where the centre of town stuff begins. The area is also quite walkable. There's a fantastic and cheap Indian- Mediterranean restaurant nearby called Red Torque as well as other breakfast and lunch places. Kitchen was stocked with essentials and all the maps and info needed as a tourist was there in the room.
The location is ok, metro is not far away, you are close to U-Street where there are a lot of bars. Edmont and his wife are nice and helpful, although the pickup from the airport for 35 $ is a little overpriced in my opinion. The apartment itself didn't really convince us. Inside the building there are several guests, you just lock up your part of the house. It's not bad either but let's say it's nothing special. 1 negative thing: the wifi isn't working sometimes and if it is, it's quite slow.
This was our first ever experience using airbnb and it was 100% positive.
Edmond and his wife were wonderful hosts. Ed helped carry our bags us to our room and was helpful showing us where different things in the apartment and also in the neighborhood.
It was perfect for my husband and myself. We were pretty self sufficient because I did a LOT of research about what we were going to do before we arrived. It was 100% what his ad said it was.
The tub is AMAZING after a long day walking around touring the sites and museums. There is a bus stop right out the front door and more every few feet. It was great to be able to use public transportation and not worry about driving and parking.
The parking spot was tight but perfect. It is right under the deck of the apartment and was great not having to worry about street parking.
I 100% recommend this place to anyone!
I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week at the end of April. It was a wonderful experience and definitely our favorite out of all the other places we have stayed at through Airbnb. The suite was clean, beautifully decorated, and the perfect size for a single person, couple, or small family/group. The kitchen was well stocked with basic food items as well as utensils, and we enjoyed much cooking during our stay. The jacuzzi is definitely a highlight of the suite, and it was great to be able to use it to wind down at the end of the day. The bed and other furniture were very comfortable as well as beautiful. We liked that there were two separate entrances, one at the main entrance and one around the back, which was useful if we came back later at night (in order to avoid disrupting other residents). The neighborhood was also safe and convenient to metro and bus lines. There were plenty of metro maps and manuals, as well as booklets/pamphlets/flyers, etc. detailing current events, shows, and exhibits currently going on around DC. Laundry facilities are available several times a week which was very convenient. Everything was pretty much perfect and I cannot say enough positive things about the whole experience! The price we paid was an incredible value for the quality of everything. Ed and his wife were very accommodating, friendly, and professional. We hope that this suite is available next time we stay in DC!
I went in Washington with my boyfriend and we searched the apartment just a day before of our arriving. I found Edmond's reply very quick and complete for all the details I've asked.
The apartment was clean and corresponding to the pictures published by Ed. We enjoyed our staying there and we advise next travellers to come to Ed's place.
This was my first experience with Air B&B and it was a good one. Great apartment in a great location, close to all of the Metro and the Big Bear cafe, a great breakfast place we found a few blocks away. The back deck is awesome for visiting in spring/summer, and Edmond is a terrific host. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
