Shaw is the hottest neighborhood in DC right now. There's a great city vibe with nearby bars and restaurants, including a great beer garden 1.5 blocks away. A new gourmet grocery store is only 4 blocks away--a nice stroll through the historic Shaw neighborhood. The colorful row houses were all built at the turn-of-the-century--a classic feature of D.C. Two take-outs are across the street: Chinese and Mediterranean/Indian will do in a pinch, and a 24-hour 7-11 is a block away.

I love to travel the world and host those who want the best experience Washington, D.C. has to offer. You will love the location and attention to detail I have put in my apartment's design. As a high school teacher, I can be available for advice or be as invisible as you'd like. I am LGBT-friendly and open to all guests, kids too. I will ensure you have a great time on your vacation with your partner, spouse, friends or family!

During your stay
Communication is everything :). I will be in touch with you a few days before your arrival--always through the AirBnB site/app. As a high school teacher, I respect all different types of travelers. If you want recommendations, I can sometimes meet at the start of your trip to give you advice, maps and show you where the shops are. I can also be invisible (unless something comes up), if that's what you prefer. I truly enjoy sharing my knowledge I've gained from 25+ years of living in DC.
