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 guests who have stayed with us this past year and they really appreciate the hospitality, the large basement condo suite and how close it is to the attractions. If you want your own place at an affordable price than read on..
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 six 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.

Anthony's place was clean, had a free parking spot and wifi; all we could ask for! Very spacious apartment. Anthony was very accommodating, even bringing us a wine opener on Christmas Day! Highly recommend this place.
I loved this place! I recommend it for sure if you plan on staying at DC for a couple of days.
Beautiful apartment near all the attractions of DC. Clean and big house. We enjoyed our stay for 3 days.
I stayed with a group of five of us all together. We came in from upstate New York about 7+ hours away. We were vendors for the Washington Paper's annual Crafty Bastards craft show. My husband and a friend got in earlier and they were able to meet Anthony. They said he was really nice and very accommodating.
When my two friends and I came in much later, and we were able to go to bed right away. I stayed on one of the sofa beds with my husband and I have to say, it was very comfortable.
The drive to the show was literally fifteen minutes and had no traffic to contend with.
After a long day of selling, we came back and it was nice to be able to relax, watch a little television and go to bed.
There were lots of perks about the condo itself. It is cozy but you don't feel claustrophobic. The shower water pressure is great, and we were able to make food on the hot plate.
Checkout was simple the next day. We grabbed our stuff, locked up, and were on our way to day 2 of the show.
I would definitely stay at the condo again, I felt like it had all perks and no cons. The pricing was so much better than any of the other places we were looking at. Anthony is a wonderful host, and he really did everything to make us feel welcomed.
Anthony’s place served us well for our large party of 6 (3 adults, 2 babies and 1 toddler). The place is very spacious with TV and cable available in all rooms. The washer/dryer was a big bonus and easy to operate. Commute to Metro Center (red line) was quick and easy if you time the R4 bus right - about 20 minutes. There’s a Dollar Tree across the street that has some frozen foods, juice, snacks and even eggs! We did find the floor was a bit dirty for crawling babies upon arrival but Anthony was quick to provide a broom and mop for us to give the floors a once over before letting the babies loose. Overall it was a great experience and would consider again.
Anthony's place fit our needs very nicely. It was clean, a good value, spacious and had plenty of sleeping accommodations for our entire group of 5. The shower was fantastic. Great water pressure!
The condo is very secure with two locking doors each with modern key-less entry.
We didn't use the washer/dryer but it was great to have the option!
We cooked several meals there over the course of our stay and the large fridge/ freezer and cookware helped save some $ from having to eat out every meal.
Anthony also helped solve a mix-up in the original booking which was super helpful! Thanks
Thank you ,place was great ,Anthony is a good host ,we do have fun in DC , everything was perfect
This is a great place located in a fairly pleasant neighborhood. Anthony was accommodating and very friendly towards all of us. Perfect for temporarily staying near D.C. while having ready access to many places in the surrounding areas.
My husband and I stayed at this condo for two nights while on a brief visit from NYC. As guests, we enjoyed the coziness and intimacy of this B&B experience. This condo was perfect for us! There was a lot of space and the place was in a great location. The space was clean and well organized much like the pictures and description. The only thing different from the pictures were that there were two new sleep sofas in the living room area which added a nice touch to the space. The place was in good shape and above all it was a very comfortable and cozy stay with plenty of amenities that made us feel at home. It is also conveniently located near a bus stop and metro station; we felt quite safe and comfortable in the neighborhood. On top of it all, Anthony was the consummate host. He prepared for our stay in a timely and organized manner. He was also great with responding to our questions. Anthony was very personable and accommodating to our needs. It was just the kind of hospitality we needed after a long and frazzled travel experience. My husband and I would definitely stay here again whenever we are in town.
I Rented This Past Week At Anthonys Place. The Place Itslef Is Basic . There Is A Living Room Area When You First Walk In With Alot Of Water Damage And Bad Areas. Ideally Mr. Anthonys Place Needs To Be Closed As To The Many Health Concerns In Mr. Anthonys Basement Apartment. This Experience Was Absolutely Crazy. The First Night Or Two Was Fine. No Complaints Really. Until My Personal Things Around The Property Started To Disappear Randomly... When I Should Have Been The Only One With Acces To The Place!! Come To Find Out He Has Family Living On The Site Upstairs . Those People Have Access To The Basement All Though The Door Is Locked There Are Keys. I Lost Over 200 Dollars In Cash And 2Transactions Magically Appeared On My Account. I Called Mr. Anothony ASAP And He Was Extermely Disrespectful And Unkind. He Shows Up To The Property Minutes Later Fuming ,Telling Me I Can Leave Instead Of Listening To My Concerns And Properly Handling The Situation. He Has Cameras All Around The Property That Watch The Activity Around The Place. At This Time I Still Had Already Paid For Another Night And My Safety Was At Risk Because If People Im Unaware Of Have Access To The Property Anything Could Happen! He Apparently Left Work . He Was Very Disrespectful Sarcastic And Childish About The Situation. He Would Not Show Me The Videos Of The Property To Assure Me Of My Safety !! I Begged And Pleaded Explained And Went On And Mr. Anothny Did Nothing To Make Me Feel Better Or Comfortable With The Situation. I Ended Up Calling The Poliece And Filling Out A Police Report On Mr Anthony And His Property. I Took The Neccessary Pictures Of The Damages And Safety Hazzards As Instructed By The Officers Who Came And Did The Walk Through Of the Property Of His Place And He Will Be Shut Down Dealing With My Kind . Honestly, Nobody Else Should Have To Go Through What I Did. Also Befroe Calling The Police Me And Anothny Somewhat Came To An Agreement. He Asked Me If I Needed A Free Night And That He Would Be Contacting Airbnb To Assist Me With Finding A New Property . The Next Day Mr Anthony Arrives At The Property Without Contacting Me With Another Guy Telling Me I Need To Leave. None The Less I Left But Not Until The Poliece Came Again. Im Not From Dc. Im From Richmond Im Here For An Internship. I Could Not Just Get Up And Go Because I Dont Know Anybody Here Or Where To Go. Mr Anthony Was A Terrible Host . I Would Never Rent From Him Again And I Would NEVER Reccomend Any Of My Fellow Airbnb Travelrs Book With Him As He Need Extensive Help With His Attitude And His Customer Service Skills. First Rule In Customer Service: The Customer Is Alwasys RIGHTT!? Dosent Seem To Matter Much To Him. I Left His Place Yesterday. Today Is August 7th 2012 And This Is The Most Up To Date Review.
