Stay in a super-basic room at a fair price. We are not earning money from you! We are a nonprofit scholars' peace community, very quiet, and we welcome you to pray or meditate if you are interested.

Because this is a great deal, you agree to be relaxed about the space. We leave clean sheets for you to make the bed yourself. Price does NOT include parking, but you can do laundry.

Black Lives Matter! LGBTQ+ friendly and affirming.

The space
Neutral and comfortable. It's a basement and kind of feels like one, but it's fine. At least the flooring is new! The heater/AC can also make noise, but I give you free earplugs and even free eye masks.

There is also a fire house on our block, so you'll occasionally hear noise or see their red lights, but they try to be respectful neighbors.

We can accommodate more people for $20 extra per person per night.

Where you’ll be

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

Where to begin? Supreme Court Justice Breyer lives on our block, the late Madeleine Albright lived very close, as does John Kerry. Joe Biden goes to mass at nearby Holy Trinity when he's in DC, and one day his motorcade stopped at Call Your Mother, a bagel shop just three blocks away. I once saw Bill Clinton standing on the street corner and thought he was alone until I realized he was surrounded by plainclothes Secret Service.

Dumbarton Oaks is lovely, and just a 15-minute walk from here. Trader Joe's is a 10-minute walk, Safeway and CVS are 7 minutes, and Dent Place Market is pricier, but just steps away. We live next door to a 24/7 fire house, so you will feel super-safe because they are always around.

You are walking distance from restaurants, cafes, libraries (two major ones), research centers, a hospital, and even the Kennedy Center. This neighborhood has it all, and only thanks to you wonderful Airbnb-ers and the scholars who come through can I afford it.

During your stay

Our house is a faculty faith community, but because of pandemic cancellations, we've chosen to offer this space to peaceful AirBnB-ers. If you are interested in prayer or meditation, just drop a note to me. Otherwise, enjoy your stay.
