About This Listing
This is a very large beautiful English basement condo that has two bedrooms, each with a full sized bed, one bath, a private living room area, washer/dryer, an eat-in kitchen area, cable TV, and wireless Internet. Wow! Come and stay with us!
This is a very large (1400 SQ feet) beautiful remodeled basement condo that has two bedrooms, each with a full sized bed, one bath, a private living room area, washer/dryer, an eat-in kitchen area, cable TV, and wireless Internet. Wow! It's has two private entrance ways (one in the rear and the other is on the side) so you can come and go as you please - just like your home.. Includes all utilities. Sleeps nine people with one person sleeping on the couch and the other sleeping on the sofa bed (in a private living room), the other four would sleep in the two bed rooms.
The below ground condo suite is close to the Brookland/CU Metro on the Red line which is the best public transportation system I've seen in a while comparable to other large cities. Now, our Metro system is not perfect by any means, but it is the best of what I've seen based on some other transit systems in large cities in the US and abroad. When using the Metro bus and train it's best to travel during rush hour. Why? Because "mass transit" systems work more efficiently when you are moving a "mass" or large number of people. There are more buses and subway trains running more frequently. It does not work as effectively for the individuals during the day. So travel times to the City center can vary greatly based on when you are traveling. The key is that the Metro system has schedules that can be used to minimize your wait time. The suite is about 1.2 miles to the Brookland/CU metro station, 3 miles to Capitol Hill and 4.5 miles to the White House. Off street parking is available if you are driving.
Just bring your tooth brush and your ability to have fun in Washington, DC - Of course all the towels and linens will be provided.
Special Offers: If I make you a special offer it will only be available for 48 hours. This will ensure on those very rare occasions that over booking does not happen.
We have updated to the best sleep system available - memory foam toppers and pillows. We recognize that sleep is one of the most important part of your stay so we have taken special attention in this area to make sure that your stay during the night is extremely comfortable and restful. If you don't sleep well at night then it's going to be hard to function and have fun during the day. Why do we constantly continue to make these small improvements? We want you to sleep so conformable that when you leave your review - it's gonna be all about how well you slept. As one biker guest from the state of Georgia said in his southern drawl at checkout, "You are lucky that I don't have my pickup truck here because I would back it up to the door and take that bed and mattress back to Georgia with me". I'm going to have to get a new bed when I get back home."
We are working harder for you so we are now offering an airport pickup and grocery paid services. Some guest would like to just show up and have the refrigerator stocked with the food, that they like to cook and eat. If you don't have a car and you don't want to use public transportation to get your groceries, just let us know and we will do the shopping for you. Or, we don't mind taking you to the grocery store or to Radio Shack (to pickup that international plug for your laptop that you left in back in Europe) if you need to go.
Thank you (website hidden) travelers for making us number one in Washington, DC in the four or more guests category. We really appreciate your appreciation of the condo suite. We also appreciate your feedback on how to make the basement Condo suite even better.
So here are some of the things that we have done based on your wonderful suggestions: We have added an electric frying pan so you can cook, in addition to the existing Microwave, George Foreman Grill, egg / omelet grill, toaster oven, and coffee maker. We have also added a HP LaserJet 4 Printer so you can print out your airline boarding pass. We really love the reliable HP LaserJet 4, you will too. The only thing that I can not fix is that for some reason AT&T cellular phone service is really spotty in the basement. There have been several guest who all have AT&T cell phone service and their calls go to voice mail. Interestingly, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon work very well.
For the young and the young at heart, we have added throwback board games such as Monopoly, Trouble, Battle Ship and a Chess board / pieces. We really like young at hearts. We have installed a garbage disposal, more towel racks in the bathroom and a silent toilet bowel lid - so when your family member or friend closes the lid in the bathroom it won't disturb you or the other guests outside of the bathroom. So a hardy "Thank You" to all the guests who have graced us with your wonderful presence and made super fantastic suggestions.
Being number one in one category is great but it is not good enough. We want guest who are traveling either singularly or as couples to be able to enjoy this wonderful suite. Okay, so here is the deal: If you are a single traveler and you want to say in only only one bedroom then send me an email and let's talk about the price. If the basement condo is free then why not talk about it and see what we can work out.
Peace and blessings,
Please note that room rates can change daily or weekly based on supply and demand. It is all about the Economics! Room rate do not change after you have booked unless you are adding guest or extending your stay. What I've found is that you can get better room rates if you book one or two months before your arrival dates. I just hate it when I don't have guest to enjoy this wonderful place. Book with confidence - Oh, yea check out our feedback.
Right side lower level.
I believe that everyone who visits the Nations Capital should have an affordable, secure, comfortable, extremely large, beautiful place to stay. It brings me great joy to make this wonderful condo unit available for your staying pleasure. I also believe you should have a private place to say, your own place for a period of time, while you are traveling - just like your home. I really appreciate all of the

This is a very quite neighborhood.
Yes! Public transportation is very close to the house. There is a Metro bus stop a few yards from the door and the Brookland/CU Metro subway is about a mile away if you like to walk.
The Brookland/CU Metro station stop on the Red line which I've seen in a while comparable to other large cities.

Highly recommended. Cleanest floor i've ever seen! Never had a problem finding a spot for parking. Close to the city.
Anthony was very welcome and very responsive, we had a lovely stay! The condo is no frills but has everything you need for a comfortable stay--washer and dryer, coffeemaker, iron, etc. All of the beds and pullout couches meant that it was a great landing pad for my family and I during our trip to dc. Thank you for having us!
We were in touch with Anthony till the day we reach this place. We reached late around midnight and were able to get into the house easily with steps advised by Anthony.
It was a more than comfortable stay for four of us - very spacious, clean and accurate to the description on AirBnB. Although we didn't get to check in until 4:30pm instead of 4pm, meeting and getting to know Anthony was very pleasant. The coded entry was great. The apt. was equipped with almost everything we needed - towels, sheets, warm comforters, kitchen utensils and appliances. A new iron board, stove and a blender would've helped a bit more.
Very quiet neighborhood and about a 20min drive to all the tourist attractions. We did not try using public transportation as we had a car but we did use über and it was about a $15 drive to the downtown area during off-peak hours and about $25 during peak hours. 20min didn't seem like too long of a drive at booking but once there, we would've preferred to pay a little more for a more centric stay since the gas and über rides added up.
Nevertheless, it was a very delightful and homey stay. The leisure of having the option to stay in and enjoy each other's company over games and conversation is always a plus.
