All of the rooms listed on my pages are arranged for your comfort, security, and as much privacy as feasible to give you during your stay. This suite room, in particular, is very private with options to enter or exit from the front steps into the basement or front hallway. So, interaction is more up to you and how much social time you would like, or keep it private! Its up to you.

Edmond and his wife were gracious hosts! Although I didn't see them during my short stay, they made sure that I was checked in and out in an effortless and convenient fashion. The room is exactly as described and there were no surprises. I'll definitely stay here again when I'm in the DC area!
Edmond's place is a great place to stay! Very comfortable, quiet, 5 minutes away walking from Shaw metro station, well connected to everything, just 35 minutes away walking from the Capitol. And very nice host! If I come back to DC I would definitely stay at Edmond's again!
It's a great place to stay! So comfortable and quiet, and it's just 35 minutes away walking from the Capitol.
Ed and his wife were very friendly and helpful. They welcomed us with a lot of useful stuff that you don't even get at a hotel. We did not had the chance to talk to them often as we were exploring DC. Thank you and would definetly stay again at ed's place.
I was in Washington in early July 2013. Edmond and his wife are great hosts, helpful and friendly. Room is very clean, really cosy, conveniently located, has a separate entrance. I don't like to use the transport, walking distance from Edmond house to city centre is about 40 minutes.
My family was visiting from out of town for about two weeks, and my apartment was too small to accommodate everyone. So, I looked up rooms/apartments in my neighborhood. I booked this room for my parents for the whole two weeks.
I was glad to find a place that was actually closer to the metro than my own place is (Green/Yellow line). So, my parents had no trouble navigating their way throughout the city on their own on the few days I had to go to work.
Edmond was very responsive and helpful with any questions my parents or I had throughout their stay. Check-in and check-out was no fuss; Edmond was very thorough, showing us everything around the basement apartment. The room had all the amenities that any hotel would have.
My dad and I had a wonderful time staying with the Geralds. The stay was great, and it was nice having a separate entrance. The lady next door owned a wonderful convenience store, it had everything you needed! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
