About This Listing
An architect-designed rowhouse downtown... Walk to Pennsylvania Avenue & city life...
"Downtown" is our 19th century Victorian brownstone home with three bedrooms that can be rented separately or together. This is our listing for individual rooms; check out the "District Rowhouse" listing for booking the entire place. Our guests enjoy using the chef's kitchen and say the architects who introduced modern conveniences into the house left it feeling like an art gallery. We are located three small blocks from the DC convention center and Yellow/Green Metro lines, within easy walking distance to museums, coffee shops, farmer's markets, and dining at the National Mall, Penn Quarter, Dupont Circle, and U Street nightlife district. Plentiful street parking surrounds our block. Just let us know if you will need a visitor's parking permit.
All of the bedrooms are situated upstairs. When we are at home, our guest bedroom is situated at the back of the house where it's very quiet, with access to its own bathroom. There's also an additional half guest bathroom on the first floor.
Within a few blocks are some of DC's best local establishments. CityMarket at O opens across the street this fall with a huge grocery market. We're also walking distance to many of DC's most celebrated local favorites: Big Bear coffee, Table, Seasonal Pantry, Busboys and Poets, Sundevich, Corduroy, Rogue 24, Red Hen, Le Diplomate, Kushi, Columbia Room. If you're feeling more off-the beaten track ethnic options, Thai X-ing, Ethiopian at Etete and Sumah's Carryout for Sierra Leonian cuisine don't dissappoint. Mockingbird Hill, Shaw's Tavern, and Red Toque Cafe round out the options. For really off the beaten track, like the taco speakeasy hidden in a local family's apartment a bit further afield, you'll have to ask.
We ask that guests kindly send us an introduction through AirBnB's "contact us" link before proceeding to book. We love to meet and share favorite spots with fellow travelers whenever possible and always look to host responsible guests.
Pricing is based on $125/room. Each room sleeps two. If you need more than one room though, we recommend checking out our other "District Rowhouse" listing for booking the whole house which is often a better deal when available.
We ask that guests kindly send us an introduction through AirBnB's "contact us" link before proceeding to book. The goal here is to make sure that our guests enjoy their travel and the time they spend in our home, and that we are able to meet their needs.
Even if you're not interested in renting with us, we do suggest that you fill out some of your AirBnB profile and introduce yourself when asking questions of prospective AirBnB hosts. A huge part of what makes AirBnB special is the community and you'll find that folks are more willing to answer your questions and accommodate you in their homes if you share something about why you enjoy traveling or what makes you an interesting or terrific guest. Be sure to include any special needs or requests you have as well.
I was in DC for my job and I was grateful to find Ayeh's place, which was not only less expensive than area hotels but also much more comfortable. My room and bathroom were clean and as described in the listing, the bed was comfortable and the neighborhood was accessible both by Metro and car. Our schedules were busy, but when we were able to see each other I enjoyed the warm welcome and conversation.
Good location, you can walk to the centre and to the nearest metro station ... everything you need in the house ! Easy entrance code system, very stylish decoration !
Ayeh house is wonderful! I spent one night in her place and I would definitely stay again if I'm back to D.C
Everything was so clean and neat and her home was pretty cozy!
She was really helpful and gave me tips about places to go in D.C She also helped me finding hotels in Washington, I was supposed to stay in Washington for a couple of nights but all airbnb places were fully booked so the days I could rent Ayeh's place I stayed there, and She was really helpful giving names of hotels or other places where I could stay :)
I really recommend her place.

About the Host, Ayeh
I love the District and sharing all the local gems it has to offer, from swing dancing evenings in a former embassy to the very affordable hidden six-seat restaurant where an idiosyncratic local Thai chef cooks personalized meals for his guests. My job and PhD program keep me on my toes, so when I'm in town, it's always a wonderful respite to get to meet fellow travelers and share stories and recommendations for food, galleries, parks, museums, and walking spots. Plus, after enjoying getting to travel like a local around the world through AirBnB and making some good friends through the process, I'm completely addicted to this website and the great community of travelers who use it!
