About This Listing
Our listing is a lovely private basement studio apartment outfitted with all the comforts of home. You will also have access to a shared kitchen and tons of in home entertainment. Combined with super-close metro access, you could say our house is perfect!
It's a lovely 3 floor semi-detached house. Cozy! (small.)
A studio apartment downstairs for you with your own bathroom (with a bathtub and shower!) AND NOW A DOOR at the top of the stairs, for extra privacy and your own cat-free zone.
Your floor/room has a very comfortable futon: room enough for two, either on the bed, or on the bed and an air mattress.
Small shared kitchen for use.
4 indoor cats on premises (who are friendly and might keep you warm if you bring cat treats).
We also have a *nice* TV entertainment system and a variety of video game consoles to keep you entertained. As well as TiVo with built in Amazon Prime Streaming (which has so much entertainment it's unbelievable!)
Wifi throughout the house for your use. Dependable and fast.
Newly added: On site massage therapist! We have a great connection to an excellent therapist. When you book your stay we will put you in touch with her to schedule your massage. (Fees apply, paid directly to the therapist.)
THE BEST PART!
1 block from a metro station (Huntington, at the end of the yellow line). Very VERY convenient to downtown Washington DC, and all your touristing/commuting needs.
One of our reviewers figured out all the times to everywhere, if that matters, be sure to check it out.
Kitchen, common room (with TV and all it's fun add-ons), private room and private bathroom, driveway, washer/dryer, lots and lots of games!
Interaction with Guests
We love our guests, but we also know that vacation can mean quiet time with your companion, or yourself. We'll hang out as much or as little as you want. Want to share dinner and play a game? Great! Want us to leave you alone for meditation? Perfect.
The metro is the equivalent of two city blocks away.
Other Things to Note
Don't forget to ask about our on-site massage therapist. Appointments must be scheduled. (Fees apply, paid directly to the therapist at the time of the service.)
Our rules are very simple:
1. No no no smoking. And preferably, no smokers.
2. You should probably like cats.
3. Be kind to us and we'll be kind to you.
Kyla and Vince were fantastic hosts. I stayed for about three months and they were welcoming from the very beginning. When I got there (and throughout my stay), they offered suggestions as to good things to eat, see, and do.
The space worked out great for a studio, and they also allow access to the kitchen, dishes, fridge, etc. The futon was comfortable and having access to a private bath was perfect.
Kyla and Vince are also willing to hang out if you want, otherwise they are willing to let you enjoy your privacy downstairs. The cats will join you downstairs if you let them (they're just as friendly as Kyla and Vince)!
I would recommend them to anyone coming for a visit or long term!

Kyla and Vince are great hosts! The space is exactly as pictured and in a nice quiet neighborhood only a few minute walk from the metro. The privacy of your own level in the house and the ability to hang out for Tuesday game night give lots of options for when in the house. Nearness of the metro and local dining provides many options for when you are out. They provide a parking pass for on street parking which is a plus.
Marvellous place to stay! You have your own entire private floor with own bathroom to boot, and bed was really comfy. Kyla and Vince are really nice and friendly and they were really accomodating when I was needed for an unexpected extended stay. Really nice folks!
Train is very close so commute was really breeze. Overall it was an excellent one month stay. Highly recommended!
Kyla was extremely friendly, upbeat, and helpful host. We wanted to close to the city but it was very hard to find somthing. This was very close to the metro which was the best part of the space. Kyla and Vince were very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay in the area and were able to spend quality time doing some sightseeing in the Alexandria and DC area.
So we were looking for a last minute booking and stumbled upon Kyla's place. We've used Airbnb before, but we'd only rented out whole spaces, never just a room. That said, this was our best Airbnb experience ever! The house was adorable and comfortable, we had a ton of privacy because the room/bath is on its own floor, with all the comforts of home in the common areas. Kyla and her husband were amazing hosts, gave us all sorts of travel tips/recommendations, didn't mind us using their French press 35 times a day, and we even had an impromptu game night when we needed a break from DC exploring - it was So. Much. Fun. 100% recommend.
It was my first experience of Airbnb I think I was very lucky that I got to these wonderful people. We played board games and console, it was cool! Thank you!
About the Host, Kyla
Kyla owns her own company; Vince works for a government contractor being a geekboy.
We love to play games and eat tasty food.
Our cats are the cutest you will ever meet! But we're not the crazy cat types; we're not! We love them, and strive to train them to have good manners, but we don't build our world around them- much.
We're generally very laid back. We enjoy traveling and seeing all sorts of amazing things (Puerto Rico, England, Malta, Sweden, Italy, Monaco, Spain, Belgium, France, the Wild West and more to come!).
We also enjoy meeting all sorts of new people from everywhere. We've been AirBnb hosts for 6 years and have loved every minute of it. Of course, we are more than hosts: whenever we travel we stay with other AirBnb'ers!
