About this listing

The suite, on it's own floor with private bathroom, is walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars, 2 metro stops, bike trails, and just minutes to the District. It's the best of both worlds; easily explore Northern VA and everything DC has to offer!

The space

This private master suite is a little like a loft in the trees. It's is the entire top floor of a craftsman cottage in one of the best neighborhoods in the DC area. There are two beds, one full and one queen, with a private bath. There is a reading nook with a large library of books to choose from, and high speed WiFi and cable TV.

Guest access

Guests have access to a newly renovated kitchen and a lovely fenced in back yard with relaxing hammock and fun inflatable pool. We are happy to recommend fun activities and places for fantastic dinners or nights on the town.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to interact with our guests as much or as little as they would like! The master suite, kitchen, and back entrance are completely separate from our part of the house. If you prefer privacy, we are happy to oblige. But if you'd like directions, recommendations or anything else, we will gladly help out.

Other things to note

We have three very sweet and social animals, one small dog and two cats. Our rescue pets are part of the family. While they don't ever go upstairs, they do hang out in the shared kitchen. If you're not comfortable with animals, we might not be the best fit for you, but if you are looking for a rental that accepts animals, we are happy to talk with you about having your little buddy stay with us too!

The host was very accommodating! She gave great recommendations for dinner and bars around the area. Her house was in an amazing location (near bars and the metro) and was the cutest place, I have been to through Airbnb. I would recommend staying there to anyone I know.

Lea made us feel welcome from the moment she greeted us. The accomodations were just what we were hoping for - comfortable, cozy and a just a quick trip to the downtown DC area. We really enjoyed just hanging out with her and her pets in the kitchen and getting to know our host. Having a place to park the car while we stayed and toured the city over the weekend was super convenient. After showing us around and helping us get settled in she asked us to consider staying nearby and enjoying the local nightlife in the Clarendon neighborhood. After a long day of travel and being tourists I’m glad we did! A quick three block walk through a charming neighborhood put us right in the middle of great shops and restaurants. It was easy to pick from her many recommendations for dinner that night and we enjoyed out night out as much as we would have in a downtown DC neighborhood. It was also the first unexpectedly warm night of the year and Lea and her husband were kind enough to take the time out their own Friday evening to get the AC up and running for us before we came back. It was really appreciated! Getting to downtown DC from this location is simple. Metro stops are no more than a 2-3 block walk and a 5 minute metro ride to areas in and around Dupont Circle. Driving in was just as easy and there was Uber service for a very reasonable fee for a busy Spring weekend in DC. This is the kind of place you might book initially for it’s convenience/location but then end up finding yourself just sipping a drink on the porch or reading a book from the selection available in your room. The atmosphere here is casual, welcoming and relaxing and we could have just as easily stayed in Clarendon and had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend without ever setting foot in the city itself. We both very much look forward to a return visit in the future.
