Great location at our historic 1900 Victorian rowhouse. We're in the heart of D.C., close to downtown and the major attractions:
- Walk to the US Capitol, National Mall, and Union Station -1 mile
- Walk to Metro (NoMa-Gallaudet U, red line) -7 minutes
- Walk to the interstate bus station -15 minutes
- Walk to the bike rental station (Capital Bikeshare) -1 block
Our home is in the middle of a beautiful, tree-lined, well-kept one way street in the Eckington neighborhood. If you come with a car, we will provide you with a visitor's parking pass.
You will have a clean private bedroom upstairs with a comfortable queen size bed in a spacious rowhouse. We provide fresh sheets, towels, a hair dryer, maps and guidebooks, and free wireless internet for your stay. There is one full bathroom shared with the other guest room.
We are happy to be flexible with your arrival and departure times - this means you can drop your bags off at the house and/or keep your bags at the house as you need.
Heather and Vasa were wonderful hosts. I appreciated their prompt response to my reservation and the communication during the reservation process was fantastic. The house was clean and conveniently located to the subway stations--great for those visiting downtown/National Mall. The room was also very comfortable. Above all, Heather and Vasa are genuinely nice people.
Heather and Vasa's home was clean, quiet and wonderfully located for a weekend of sightseeing around DC. The room was bright and airy and was replete with space. The wood floors and high ceilings made the space feel so open and fresh. The large bed was comfortable and cozy. Coming and going from the house was incredibly simple and made us feel totally free to explore the city on our own time. The next time we are in DC, Heather and Vasa's getaway will be at the top of our list!
We really enjoyed our stay at Heather & Vasa's place. Room is cozy, clean and comfy with books and maps about the city provided! They're hospitable and friendly. Though they're super busy, they still shared stories with us, recommended fun places/restaurants and responsive to our questions. This place is very close to bus-stop and the metro station . Highly recommend this room!
The place is very much as described - comfortable bed, pretty decent sized room and overall very clean! I did not spend much time in the rest of the house but from what I saw its quite large and very well kept. Its pretty close to the metro - although in todays very cold weather it can seem like quite the trek :). I was only able to meet Heather who is extremely nice and was more than willing to help/answer questions if they arose even in her busy schedule. Provides an affordable, comfortable and convenient alternative to a hotel - I would recommend this place especially for short term visits such as my own!
Heather & Vasa are warm and friendly people who I felt completely welcomed by. Their house is lovely and in a great location in DC. Awesome stay, thank you very much!
Very cozy and neat house and guest room, close to the metro station, quiet and safe neighbourhood. Heather and Vasa are very nice and considerate hosts, with very clear indication on the house location, recommended bar & restaurants, and greengrocer. Though they have a very busy schedule, the feedback is alway so quick.
Heather and Vasa were great hosts and their place was very nice. Less than 10 minute walk to the Metro stop. Would definitely stay there again!
I had a pleasent stay at Heather's house. It was clean and big and the house had good public transport access, but you can also walk everything cause it's close to city center and all the important monuments.
Very nice people in a nice house just as advertised. I had good conversations with both Heather and Vasa; they have a lot going on in their lives and are fun to talk to. I recommend them to anyone coming to the DC area.
Hosts Heather + Vasa are a warm, hospitable, thoughtful duo — I enjoyed getting to know them a bit, and wish there’d been more time to get to know them. The room — and house in general — was comfortable, warm, QUIET, private, clean, and tastefully + minimally (which i love!) furnished. Traveling from California, I was pleasantly surprised to find a longboard and tropical plants in the room. I was really happy with my choice!
