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.

Anthony was very friendly and welcoming, helped us find places in the neighborhood we needed. The apartment was comfortable and easy to use. It was good location for us, having a car. no parking problems. We had a great stay and visit! Thank you Anthony! Left you some words of thanks in the visitors book too.
Greetings from Israel, The Piorko family.
From the very beginning Anthony made himself readily available to clarify any questions I had about the accommodations. I had a fairly late check in, and I figured he would be too tired after work but he still agreed to meet us and walk us through the condo. He was quite welcoming in person. He even gave a ride back to the area where our conference was held!
The set up is simple and is designed for that DC Metro city vibe...eat, sleep and go! And that is essentially all we needed it for too.
As some have mentioned, the design is standard and slightly antique decor (cool sewing table, big tv, printer, book selection, paintings, table etc).
There were plenty of space to sit/sleep and still have a little privacy and space.
The door key takes some practice but it's easy to navigate.
Anthony was answering our calls. The neighborhood was great. Easy access with a near by Seven Eleven open till late night.Did not face any parking issues. The apartment is in basement. Spacious.Bathroom is clean and renovated. Many old antique items are present. There is a two point cooktop in kitchen. It is real slow to cook with it. Could be better if there is a proper cooktop. Some part of the false roofing was worn out. A small room with unwanted stuff could be converted to a bathroom. Hope the water leak from AC is rectified now. Other than these it was a great experience.
Our stay with Anthony was fantastic! Upon arrival we got to be apart of his livestream, which was definitely a new experience for us. We had no issues our whole trip except our last night the cable/Internet went down but it was about 2am so we were fine without it. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has a larger group. All 6 of us had more than enough space to unwind at the end of the night and not feel like we were on top of eachother.
I can't wait to make our trip back to DC and stay with Anthony!
Anthony was very welcoming and helpful host. The place clean and comfortable and Anthony was always available to help. It's a nice place to stay when you visit DC.
Anthony was a very kind host. He was very flexible about our check-in/check-out time. He also gave us a ride to the supermarket upon our arrival. The listing is accurate, and the neighborhood was nice and quiet. The apartment was well prepared for a big group. I would definitely come back here when traveling with a large group.
