Well appointed bedroom and shared bath on second floor of beautiful four bedroom four bathroom home in downtown downtown DC. Downstairs common area is shared with guests.

The bedroom is clean with hardwood floors, a KING-SIZED hardwood bed with egyptian cotton sheets, flat-screen television with access to terrestrial digital network and Netflix (No cable or DirecTV) and beautiful furniture. The bed is an awesome sleep. Windows are double treated with wood and honeycomb window blinds. The room can be as dark or as light as you desire.

The bathroom is super nice with light green marble floors, walls and white marble sink. Jacuzzi tub,a unique double Speakman faucet for super showers, everything is designed for simple, solid and effective living while you stay here.

Downstairs common area is awesome with a huge great room floor-plan, large kitchen with brand new appliances. Freshen up your wardrobe with our steam setting on the washer dryer.

The location is superb: one block from Shaw Howard metro, ten minutes or less walk to Convention Center, Logan Circle, Bloomingdale, U Street corridor food, and music clubs (including the 9:30 Club) and plenty of nightlife. Dunkin Donuts is a block away, 7Eleven a couple in the other direction, one of the best thai places, chinese take out and middle eastern fare all within a block walk from the house.

** price includes single occupancy. There is a $15 extra per night for an additional person.

  • Great place. Feels very much at home. Everything was a walking distance, from public transport to shopping and eating place. Would stay again next time I visit DC. The hosts were wonderful. Thank you for everything.

  • Stayed at Chris' place for 5 weeks after getting a new job in DC as sort of an in between place until I could get a permanent apartment. Chris actually took the time to help me deal with odds and ends issues like parking and made a point to let me know when I got mail at the house after I had moved to my new apartment. The place is clean, kitchen and rooms are outfitted well. Chris does a pretty good job of vetting the other people staying there, who were all young professionals when I was there. Obviously I'd recommend the place.

  • This stay is my first with Airbnb and it was really a great experience. Despite the fact my stay has been shortened I really enjoyed living at Chris and Bryan's place. I only met Chris who was very understanding and helpful. Their house is fully equipped (and what a kitchen!) and very welcoming. Comfortable bed, plenty of space in the room and very clean bathroom. A few blocks away from the red line. Slight inconvenience, the grocery store is a bit further than anything but there's a CVS at a 5min walk.
    I recommend the place!

Hi! I am a long time resident of DC, but travel a bit. Professionally I have been invoved with internet start ups in one way or another since the first internet bubble-bust. I founded a pretty popular music podcast network called IndieFeed, and most recently a service called HugeFan. The first one went smashingly good, the following one just kind of smashed. Now I am taking a new fork in the road with a new consumer product for people who have and admire beards. Like me. I developed Beardashery No. 1 beard oil, and it is sold online and in select salons like DC's Logan 14 Aveda Salon & Spa. Now I get to say things like "ask for it by name!" and "Yes I do recommend a gift for that hard-to-please bearded guy." :) I love meeting people and connecting everyone, and this space is a part of this exciting hobby :) So it's helpful to know who I am dealing with. It helps me to deliver on expectations and to assess a successful match. So, filling-out your profile plus information about your planned stay prioritizes your request above the others.
