Who we are:
Adam and Jen are your hosts. Adam works a government job by day and makes custom hardwood furniture by night and weekend; Jen is a Physician Assistant by day and has built a beautiful garden in our yard, sews, and does all sorts of crafty things. Our dog, Britta, loves people; but she does not have access to your space. If you don't love dogs, we can arrange to ensure you don't have any contact with her (like when you come to the front door).
We have wireless internet (password provided upon check in); there is a TV and a Roku player for streaming Netflix/Pandora in the room...but we do not have cable, just a few network channels
If you're driving, let us know and we can work out a parking pass, or perhaps put you in our space (if you have a small car).
The washer/dryer are just through the door into our basement...if you need to use them, we can arrange that.
Fresh towels will be in the bathroom for you at arrival
Shampoo/conditioner/bodywash/hairdryer are located under the sink in the bathroom
If you have questions about availability just send us a quick note!
Guests have a private entrance to the room, access to their own TV, Fridge, bathroom, and microwave. Wireless internet is available with Netflix and Pandora streaming through the TV via Roku. Upon request, we can provide access to the washer/dryer. Guests staying over 1 week may be provided access, when possible, to the kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests and occasionally chat with them between their trips. We are happy to answer any questions and fulfill reasonable requests. Occasionally, guests join us for a drink or participate in small gatherings at our home. Otherwise, we assume most guests choose our listing so they can have a unique experience and their own space; but if you want to hang out, just let us know!
Our neighborhood is unique: we are between two bustling areas (H ST NE and Eastern Market). Both of those areas are full of restaurants, bars, shops, and positive urban energy. Our block, and the ones immediately adjacent, are home to quiet families who enjoy the nearby amenities, but also the relative tranquility of our flower and vegetable gardens.
If you rent a car, you may find it convenient to leave it parked at our place and take one of many public transportation options. We are very close to the D6 and X8 bus lines, which will take you downtown, near the monuments, or to Union Station, where you can take the metro nearly anywhere you want to go. We are also just 1 block away from a large bikeshare station. If you're unfamiliar with bikeshare programs, we encourage you to (website hidden) "Capital Bikeshare" and see what it is all about. In nice weather, it is a great way to experience the city (that is, if you're comfortable on bicycles).
We have a few maps in the room, but have found many guests bring their own, or prefer to use a mobile device to navigate.
1. Please communicate: let us know what you need, when you'll be arriving/leaving, etc.
2. No smoking
3. No pets
This is a safe, urban neighborhood--kids play outside with minimal supervision, people are generally friendly, and you can walk to bars and restaurants without trepidation. However, it is a city neighborhood--please be careful at night, do not leave valuables in your car, and pay attention to your surroundings.
Jen and I have odd schedules and curiosities about our jobs you may not be used to. Jen works in a hospital, so she is sometimes home during the day, and sometimes works nights. When she is at work, she often does not carry her mobile phone. Adam does not have his mobile phone available at work. As such, we may not be immediately available should something come up during your visit. However, we will do everything we can to make sure you have the information and resources you need to have a great stay and figure out any obstacles that may arise.
As usual, great place. Clean,quiet, convenient, stocked with snacks and breakfast food. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderfull stay in DC at Adams and Jens place. Communication was very easy and with our gps it was easy to find. Parking in front of the entrance of our room was uncomplicated and so was also the entrance with a Code for the lock of the door. The room has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Adam and Jen had arranged everything necessary in the room in advance so we had a great time in Washington. As you have a bikesharing station next to the house you can explore the city by bike. We can fully recommand this airbnb!
We had an awesome stay at Adam and Jen's apartment. It was exactly as described and perfect for my husband, 14 month old daughter and me. The apartment was clean and it was nice to have the microwave, fridge and snacks left for us. We also took advantage of their restaurant recommendations- both Shawafel and H & Pizza were delicious! Easy walk to bus stop and only a 2 mile walk to the Smithsonian. It was a major bonus that we could park in the short driveway and not the street or a garage. We'd definitely stay there again.
Adam and Jen's place is absolutely lovely! the room got everything I need, not big, but very cozy and clean, perfect for a couple or people traveling by themselves like me! The place is located in a quaint residential area in south capitol hill, not far from the union station, plus the neighborhood is good for exploring by foot too! I especially enjoyed a visiting to Eastern Market on the weekend, very fun. Jen sent me instructions on how to get in the place a couple days before my arrival, which is very nice. They are really nice people and easy to reach if I have anything in need. Thank you Adam& Jen!!
This is a wonderful, cozy welcoming space. It is in a great neighborhood with a number of wonderful restaurants nearby. The hosts left a premium coffee maker and coffee, health snacks and a variety of beverages in the refrigerator. There was also an umbrella, bicycle helmets and other amenities to make me comfortable. It is an amazing value for the price! I would recommend it to anyone. The bed was very comfortable and the space is quiet.
We had an excellent stay here. The studio was really clean, comfortable and in a great location. The neighbourhood was lovely, with very easy public transport to the sights of downtown. Jen and Adam were excellent hosts, providing helpful information, a super-smooth check-in and generously letting us park our car in the driveway for the morning after we'd checked out.
We are SO impressed with Adam and Jens apartment. It's in a lovely quiet area with lots of beautiful houses which makes for an enjoyable walk to the centre of town (20-30 mins to the mall). The bed is comfortable, the apartment super clean and kitted out with absolutely everything you could possibly need! (The drinks and snacks were very welcome when we arrived!) Adam and Jen are very lovely and did everything to make our stay perfect. We couldn't recommend this place enough! Will be back!
We LOVE living here. We like meeting new people, enjoying the outdoors, being creative and crafty, and seizing the day.
We hope to provide you with a comfortable place to explore the city--we'd love to help you get around and enjoy your time here as much as we do.
